Our headline bears repeating. Is this a great country or what?
Where else could six drug smugglers acquire a residence and stash it with enough drugs to wipe out an entire city, all while living like kings?
No, we are not talking about the recently convicted Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán.
His departure from the world of drugs, death, and destruction via a life sentence will create a vacuum south of the border as competing cartels vie for control of the lucrative illegal drug market.
Which is how this article came to light.
Here is an ominous quote from Fox News regarding the potential for violence on our southern border:
Rangel-Gutierrez is affiliated with the upstart Jalisco New Generation cartel, which has tried to stage incursions into Sinaloa territory, sparking bloody turf battles in places like Tijuana. The border city across from San Diego has become one of the world’s deadliest cities.
All six of the drug smugglers (seen below) now in custody were illegals living in North Carolina. What is even more disturbing is that they were able to purchase house pictured above with no U.S. documentation whatsoever.
Another alarming report involving the drugs flowing across our southern border appeared on Fox News and offered the following quote:
A Mexican national was arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents on Saturday with enough fentanyl to kill 57 million Americans, according to an internal memo first reported on Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
How does all this impact border security? Well, to begin with, the vacuum left by “El Chapo” will start another drug war on our southern border.
An article from the Washington Post describes the situation:
It is in a state, Tamaulipas, that is the only place along Mexico’s northern border to carry the State Department’s most severe travel warning, putting it in the same category as Afghanistan and North Korea.
The Baltimore Post would like to pose a question for the naysayers that oppose border security and the wall that would protect this nation from such violence and potential threats.
Do you lock your doors at night?
We don’t think Nancy or Chuck would invite these types of neighbors over for a cookout.
Realize, folks, that an all-out drug war South of the border, compounded with the continued flight of refugees headed to the United States, should make the security and safety of this nation a top priority.
The late President Ronald Reagan might suggest that Nancy tear down the wall surrounding her house first.
