An unelected mayor of a New Mexico town has issued a cease-desist-order to the “We Build the Wall” group, which is using crowdfunded cash to build a section of border wall on private land.

Javier Perea, the mayor of City of Sunland Park, said the group was in violation of a city ordinance stating that any fencing can only be only be six feet high, according to CBS4. The group reportedly applied for a permit to build a taller fence, but the Mayor’s office said it was incomplete.

Perea was appointed mayor in 2012, and has held office ever since. He is described as “liberal” by the Tennessee Star.

”We Build The Wall has done everything they need to do to be in compliance with all regulations. We’ve had members from Sunland Park city government out to inspect the site and to witness the first concrete pour. We believe this is a last ditch effort to intimidate us from completing this historic project by a local government with a long history of corruption problems.”

Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is the general counsel for “We Build the Wall,” which has obtained non-profit status.

He said that the section of wall is 80 percent complete, but is currently halted while they figure out how to proceed with the town, according to The Washington Times. 

“He sounded confident that the project will be completed, saying city inspectors had been out to the site during construction on Friday, and officials had given them the go-ahead to build, and to pay the permit fee later, when the person who sets the rate returns from time off,” the report said.

Both sides are reportedly ready to take the issue to the local courts, unless it is resolved.

Former Mexican Defense Minister is Arrested in Los Angeles for Allegedly Protecting a Drug Cartel

More Proof that Mexico is An Institutional Dumpster Fire

Retired Mexican General Salvador Cienfuegos was arrested on October 15, 2020.

According to allegations from U.S. prosecutors, General Cienfuegos received bribes from a powerful Mexican cartel and allowed to smuggle drugs into the United States.

An indictment that was unsealed on October 17, revealed that from December 2015 to February 2017, while he served as Mexico’s Secretary of National Defense, Cienfuegos allegedly worked on behalf of a drug cartel. In working with this drug cartel, Cienfuegos earned the nickname of “El Padrino” (The Godfather) by helping the H-2 Cartel move drugs from Mexico to the U.S.

“The defendant [Cienfuegos] abused that public position to help the H-2 Cartel, an extremely violent Mexican drug trafficking organization, traffic thousands of kilograms of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States,” prosecutors contended in a letter sent to a U.S. District Court judge in New York.

“In exchange for bribe payments,” the letter argued, he allowed the cartel “to operate with impunity in Mexico” while it operated distribution networks in cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas and in other states such as Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina and New York.

U.S. agents took the retired general into custody on October 15 at Los Angeles International Airport. Cienfuegos is expected to be transferred to New York.

Cienfuegos served as defense secretary from 2012 to 2018 under the administration of then-President Enrique Peña Nieto.

“The main problem in Mexico is corruption,” López Obrador declared during a news briefing on October 16 regarding the incident.

In López Obrador’s view, it is  “regrettable” that someone in such a high position of government has deep connections to drug cartels.

“This is a process of progressive degradation,” López Obrador continued, “and we are trying now to figure out how deep the corruption goes.”

As of now, Cienfuegos is the most prominent Mexican official to have been arrested on drug trafficking charges. In 2019, U.S. authorities arrested Genaro García Luna, the Secretary of Public Security under the administration of former President Felipe Calderón, for allegedly being involved in drug trafficking.

According to the U.S. indictment, Cienfuegos was working with H-2, an alleged branch of the Beltrán-Leyva criminal cartel. On top of that, prosecutors claims that the retired general received bribes to shield the cartel and its leaders. He then proceeded to inform them beforehand of military actions planned against them and even used troops to attack a rival cartel.

Mexico is clearly on the ropes institutionally. With a current president (AMLO) who wants to take a “hugs not bullets” approach to crime, the country will continue to spiral into chaos as drug cartels become even more powerful. President Trump has been right all along in building a wall to protect America from the potential spillover effects of Mexico’s drug war.
