6 Illegal Immigrants Linked To Mexican Cartel Arrested In NC For Drug Trafficking Operation

Via Fox News:

“Six illegal immigrants with ties to a Mexican drug cartel — a rival of the powerful Sinaloa cartel, whose notorious leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was convicted last week — were arrested in an elaborate drug trafficking operation in North Carolina, according to reports.

The massive drug operation included transporting large amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine across state lines — for instance, from Texas to Georgia and North Carolina, WSOC reported.

The feds identified the suspects as Oscar Rangel-Gutierrez, Regulo Rangel-Gutierrez, Francisco Garcia-Martinez, Rodolfo Martinez, Raul Rangel-Gutierrez and Rigoberto Rangel-Gutierrez.

“Members of the investigative team believe — based on wire intercepts, surveillance and other facts discovered from the investigation — that Oscar and Regulo transport illicit proceeds, derived from the sales of narcotics, when they travel from Myrtle Beach to Charlotte,” according to federal court documents, as WMBF reported.

Misty Joyner, who reportedly lived near the home in Charlotte where investigators said Rangel-Gutierrez stored drug money, was in disbelief about her neighbors.

“Just devastating,” Joyner told WSOC. “They were good people.”

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.

Sinaloa’s leader, Guzman, was convicted last Tuesday in New York, likely meaning he will spend decades behind bars in the United States.

He gained infamy for twice pulling off brazen escapes from maximum-security prisons, earning him international notoriety perhaps rivaled only by the late Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.

VIDEO: Illegals Cross Border & Walk Past 5 Members Of Congress Unnoticed

The congressmen were lucky they weren’t violent criminals.

The Washington Examiner is reporting:

“YUMA, Ariz. — Three women and one child recently went undetected as they illegally crossed from Mexico to Arizona through the Colorado River and walked past a group of five congressmen who had been there to see smuggling activity.

A Washington Examiner reporter was at the border during the Tuesday night incident when a group of four, who had just waded through the shallow water came up through the brush, walked up to a Border Patrol road less than a few hundred feet from the river.

Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., was leading a tour for four Republican congressmen — Matt Gaetz of Florida, John Joyce of Pennsylvania, Pete Stauber of Minnesota, and Dusty Johnson of South Dakota — who were seeing the southern border for the first time.

During the hourlong excursion, the group of women waded across the water and was able to stay out of sight of lawmakers due to the overgrown water plants and brush on the edge of the water.

A retired couple who lives on the other side of the dirt road that separates their home from the river and brush said they were the ones who flagged down a nearby Border Patrol agent.

“I didn’t call anybody. I was sitting in there watching TV — knocking on the door. There’s four of them here. They wanted aqua so I went and got ’em a bottle of water,” said Dennis, who did not share his last name.

“I walked ’em out here — said they need to go up there,” Dennis said, pointing to the dirt road agents use to drive up and down the border. “Said they don’t want to go up there. Then Border Patrol came.”

His wife, Barbara, said she had been walking around by the road with their three dogs when the four people approached their home.

“I’m trying to motion them, ‘No, they gotta go up here to be picked up,’ because that’s where they usually get picked up. They usually turn themselves in,” said Barbara. “They were nice and smiling and all that, but they were bound to walk to Yuma.”

The woman said the four did not speak English and she could not determine where the four people were originally from. She said maybe El Salvador, since one was wearing a hat with the country’s name on it.

A Border Patrol agent pulled up right in front of the Washington Examiner reporter and spoke with the group for a few minutes before asking them to get in the back of his pickup truck.

“So my husband walked up there — normally law enforcement’s up there. The guy happened to be right where Dennis could motion him to come here and point down the road, they were right here heading down the [other] road,” she said.

Barbara said she and her husband have lived on the border in their current house for 5 1/2 years. They said incidents like the one on Tuesday evening were normal, but that most individuals or groups who come over the river illegally just stand on the dirt road and wait for agents to find them instead of knocking on their door.

“We had four of them that went down there the other day. We had one that was higher than a kite was out here yelling at things,” Dennis said.

“In the past several months, it’s getting to be more and more,” said Barbara. “It’s pretty much like a sieve right here because all we have are vehicle barriers and the river is very shallow right here. You can just wade across.”

Dennis estimated 50 to 500 people are coming across “right there” daily.”

VIDEO: Brian Kolfage Rolled Into Mexico Illegally To Show How Easy It Is To Cross The Border

By Jeff Rainforth:

Brian Kolfage, Kris Kobach, and I went to Texas & New Mexico last week for border wall negotiations with landowners. We visited the border in several areas, spoke with Border Patrol agents, and scouted land for construction of the wall.

Kolfage crossed the border illegally in his wheelchair twice to show how easy it is. There were high winds during our visit and a massive dust storm in one area.

Here is Kolfage explaining the situation (The high winds affected the audio as another person shot the video with an iPhone).

Here’s the second video.

Kris Kobach is being considered by President Trump for Secretary of Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The position is now open as Kirstjen Nielsen has resigned.

Here are a few photos of Kolfage & Kobach.

Kolfage expects to begin construction on the border wall this month.
