A Customs and Border Patrol agent was arrested and federally charged with multiple counts of drug trafficking, conspiracy and distribution of controlled substances.

A Department of Justice charging document alleges that Carlos Victor Passapera Pinott, 53, of Buckeye, Arizona, transported two duffel bags containing heroin and fentanyl from the US-Mexico border to Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, where the drugs were handed off to another criminal operative.

Passapera is a Border Patrol agent assigned to the Tucson sector. The charging document details his alleged activities.

On August 9, 2020, at approximately 3:15 AM, Passapera left his residence and drove south to a remote area of the border west of the Lukeville Port of Entry. Passapera then drove to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, where he loaded two duffel bags into another vehicle. Law enforcement agents stopped the driver of that vehicle after it left the airport, and searched the duffel bags.

The bags contained multiple packages of substances that field tested positive for the characteristics of cocaine (21 kilograms), heroin (1 kilogram), and fentanyl (1 kilogram). The bags also contained approximately 350,000 pills. A sample from the pills field tested positive for the characteristics of fentanyl.”

Law enforcement took Passapera into custody on Sunday, and seized $329,000 from his residence and $40,000 from his vehicle.

Passapera, who is facing multiple drug trafficking charges, could face a maximum penalty of life in prison. Federal prosecutors conceivably won’t take kindly to a federal agent engaging in what is a de facto betrayal of the United States, using a position of power to advance the goals of those who seem to be affiliated with criminal drug cartel and trafficking organizations.

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato

America must bolster its border security.

The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.

Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior. 

According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang. 

“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.

Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.

With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue. 

As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
