Wanted Cartel Boss Behind One-Third Of Drugs Entering The U.S. Via The Border

Published

It would be nice if we took out cartel leaders like they did in the movie Clear and Present Danger. One well-placed missile solves a lot of problems.

CBS News is reporting:

“Chicago — Just after sunrise on Chicago’s West Side, CBS News watched the morning rush for drugs. Brian McKnight with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) showed what was going on in broad daylight.

Last year in Chicago, almost 800 people died from drug overdoses. McKnight said “probably 90%” of the drugs in Chicago are coming from Mexico. The DEA is focused on a Mexican drug lord named Nemesio Cervantes, known simply as El Mencho.

“He is the number one priority for DEA and frankly for federal law enforcement in the United States,” said Matthew Donahue, the DEA’s top agent in Mexico.

He has helped uncover dozens of El Mencho drug labs in the jungle. El Mencho’s Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion, or CJNG, is responsible for at least a third of the drugs entering the U.S. by land and sea. According to the Department of Justice, the cartel has trafficked “tons” of cocaine, methamphetamine and fentanyl-laced heroin.

El Mencho has a $10 million bounty on his head. Ironically, he lived in California some 30 years ago, where he was arrested on drug charges and eventually deported back to Mexico. That’s where he started the violent cartel.

“He has got an enormous amount of weapons, RPGs, 50 caliber weapons. He basically has his own SWAT teams,” Donahue said.

From shooting down a Mexican Army helicopter, killing six, to being implicated in a public hanging this summer, El Mencho protects his empire with impunity.

Cartel violence has led to thousands of murders in recent years. According to statistics from the Mexican government, there are approximately 94 homicides per day.

Back in Chicago, the Mexican drugs seized are so toxic, they can’t be handled without protective gear. At the lab, packs of cocaine are stamped with trafficker brands. More than a third can be traced back to El Mencho’s cartel.

“He is the one that is responsible for sending the poison that is actually killing innocent women and kids,” Donahue said.

So, when someone’s child dies, Donahue said there’s “a good chance” those drugs came from El Mencho’s organization. Last year, more than 67,000 Americans died from an overdose.”

Here’s how you take care of the problem.

VIDEO: First Anniversary Of Our Border Wall Build In Sunland Park, New Mexico

Published

on

...

* By

Memorial Day weekend marked the one year anniversary of the construction of our first border wall project in Sunland Park, New Mexico. The saga began late in 2018 when the founder of We Build the Wall, triple-amputee vet Brian Kolfage, started a GoFundMe account & asked the American people to pitch in to build the wall on our southern border. Within three days of starting the GoFundMe, Kolfage had raised $9 million & his project attracted media attention nationwide. After 25 days, Kolfage had raised $20 million from 337,518 patriotic Americans.

The original plan was to donate funds raised to the government & have the money earmarked for border wall construction. When it became clear that the government would not appropriate the funds for a border wall, Kolfage formed a non-profit designed to fund construction of the wall on private property.

Members of the We Build the Wall team grew to include notable public figures such as: Steve Bannon, Joy Villa, Tom Tancredo, Curt Schilling, Kris Kobach, Sheriff David Clarke, Brandon Darby, Erik Prince, Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza, Angel Dad Steve Ronnebeck, and Brigadier General Dr. Robert S. Spalding III.

After months of scouting possible locations for the first section of wall in the border states, Kolfage, Kris Kobach, and I took a trip to Sunland Park, New Mexico in April. The owner & and co-owner of American Eagle Brick Company, George Cudahy & Jeff Allen, agreed to have a section of wall built on their property which sits on the Rio Grande River. Construction would begin a month later.

DONATE HERE FOR PROJECTS 3 & 4!

On Saturday, May 18, 2019, Foreman Mike and I were on-site. Mike would oversee the construction of the wall & make sure there was no money wasted, and I was sent to document the construction of the wall from start to finish. Fisher Industries was contracted to build the wall, and CEO Tommy Fisher directed day-to-day operations. That Saturday, heavy equipment operators began clearing the land & reducing parts of the mountain the wall would go up.

In the video below, you can hear Foreman Mike directing the operator of a 40-ton CAT 825K how to get unstuck in the difficult terrain.

This is from the first night we were on site for the construction of Airman Kolfage's border wall. May 18th. The terrain was so rough a 40-ton CAT 825K compactor got stuck & had to "duck walk" up the mountain. You can hear Foreman Mike barking orders to the operator. Everyone cheered when it made it up the hill. I have about a thousand videos of wall construction so I'll be pumping them out as fast as I can. I'll try to keep to chronological order. Donate for our next sections of wall here & tell 'em Photographer Jeff sent you! Thanks for all your support from We Build the Wall! https://www.gofundme.com/f/thetrumpwall

On Monday, May 20th, transformation of the mountain began in earnest. We faced high temperatures & dust storms which made it difficult to progress, but the Fisher team did an outstanding job despite the unforgiving elements. The video below shows a dust storm that enveloped the mountain that Monday.

This is from May 20th, second day of construction on Airman Kolfage's border wall. Huge dust storm as I hiked around the mountain with temps in the 90s. Warning: Colorful language! There were several days where all the surrounding mountains were blocked by these massive storms. Glad I had my shemaghs & desert goggles on! Follow me at Jeff Rainforth & never miss a vid. Lots more of the wall construction coming! https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall

In this video is Tommy Fisher of Fisher Industries placing the first section of our bollard wall on May 24th, 2019. Over Memorial Day weekend, Fisher’s crews worked 3 days & nights to get a major portion of the wall up while city officials were off for the holiday. This was done on purpose as the project had been a secret until then. We knew liberal politicians would try to stop us. They served us with a cease-and-desist order after they realized what we were doing. We threatened to sue the city of Sunland Park, NM. and a day & half later we were back in business.

I shot the video below on Memorial Day last year (Monday, May 27th), three days after we placed the first bollard sections. Fisher’s crews worked through the night & placed more sections after this.

On June 2nd, 2019, the final bollard section was placed at the top of the mountain. The wall also employs motion sensors that reach 40 feet into Mexico and 40 feet into the U.S. A video surveillance system runs 24/7, and Border Patrol agents have access to all of the data. A concrete speedway was constructed so Border Patrol agents can quickly get to the top of the wall if anyone tries to illegally enter the U.S. or smuggle in drugs. The video montage below shows the progress of our first border wall project from start to finish. To date, no one has gotten over the wall.

And finally, Foreman Mike gives an update on the completed wall. A big thanks to him for enduring grueling work weeks and up to 16 hour days on the mountain.

We’d like to thank the American people for making this project possible, and those of the WBTW team (Amanda Shea, Dustin Stockton, Jennifer Lawrence, and Tiffiny Ruegner) who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this happen.

As of today, our second border wall project, 3.5 miles on the Rio Grande River in Mission, Texas is complete thanks to Fisher Industries, and we’re onto projects 3 & 4 which we hope to start as soon as the Covid-19 lockdown are relaxed enough.

Border City Across From El Paso Records Biggest One-Day Spike In COVID-19 Fatalities

Published

on

...

* By

It’s a good thing President Trump has clamped down on green card holders entering the country. If the situation worsens in Mexico, he may need to cut off all legal migration for a while in order to keep Americans safe.

JUAREZ, Mexico (Border Report) — Juarez recorded its largest one-day spike in COVID-19 fatalities with eight, health authorities reported Friday. That brings the total number of deaths to 42 in this Mexican border city where health officials say the worst is not over.

“We know there will be an increased number of cases in the next weeks,” said Dr. Arturo Valenzuela, head of the Chihuahua state Health Department in Juarez.

Most of the new fatalities are taking place inside clinic 66 of the IMSS (Mexican Social Security Institute), where a large number of the sick are hospitalized, some of them on ventilators.

In addition, the crisis is taking its toll on medical workers and hospital capacity. Eighteen doctors, nurses and other health care workers have tested positive for COVID-19 in the state, including 12 in Juarez, Valenzuela said.

Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas, has struggled to get its residents to comply with a stay-at-home and social distancing guidelines issued last month. On Thursday, Border Report spotted a dozen people outside an ATM machine not observing social distancing and half not wearing face masks, which are now required.

El Paso health officials, who are dealing with a crisis of their own, say they are closely monitoring developments in Juarez due to cross-border interaction. A Paso del Norte Health Foundation survey found that more than 60 percent of the residents of one city have relatives living in the other, and that visiting relatives is the main reason for crossing the border in this region.

As of Friday morning, the state of Chihuahua was reporting 271 confirmed COVID-19 cases, 188 of those in Juarez. The state that borders both Texas and New Mexico had recorded 49 fatalities, 42 of those in Juarez.

On Thursday evening, the El Paso Department of Public Health reported 29 new COVID-19 cases bringing the county’s total number to 674, including 10 deaths. El Paso County had 33 patients hospitalized, and 21 of those were in intensive care, the department reported.

Residents in El Paso County will now be required to wear face masks or cloth coverings when out in public, El Paso’s mayor and county judge said Thursday afternoon.
