OPEN BORDERS... IT'S ALL ABOUT KEEPING WAGES DEPRESSED....“Extensive research by economists like George Borjas and analyst Steven Camarota reveals that the country’s current mass legal immigration system burdens U.S. taxpayers and America’s working and middle class while redistributing about $500 billion in wealth every year to major employers and newly arrived immigrants. Similarly, research has revealed how Americans’ wages are crushed by the country’s high immigration levels.” JOHN BINDER
and Guy have been covering this story for a bit now. Montgomery County,
Maryland is a deep blue bastion. They’re not working with immigration enforcement
authorities and it’s pretty much a sanctuary county.
So, it really shouldn’t
be a shocker that hordes of illegal
alien rapists are flocking to the region. There have been seven illegal
alien rapists apprehended by police since late July. One of
which raped a 16-year-old after he climbed into her room and held her at knife
point. Another had been molesting two children over the course of
six months. They’re animals. This is why we need Immigration and Customs
Enforcement deporting this trash the hell out of our country, and the cases
keep stacking up. You can read more, here,here, and here about
how the collar counties around Baltimore have become havens for illegal alien
Yet, as with illegal aliens who murder our citizens, the
Democrats don’t care. They don’t. They see the overall end game: millions of
new Democratic voters thanks to these illegals being granted amnesty and put on
a pathway to citizenship. Dead and raped Americans are worth this deluge
of new voters for the Left. It’s about power. Now, with illegal alien rapists
running wild and going through the area like the hordes of Genghis Khan, these
Maryland officials have responded (via Fox5DC):
leaders released a letter Thursday addressing the recent string of violent
rapes and sexual assaults that have occurred in the county calling them
"horrendously vile acts."
Addressing the recent
scrutiny, the letter goes on to state:
"There has been a
lot [of] inaccurate information spread by the White House, President Trump,
Acting USCIS Director Ken Cuccinelli, local and national conservative news
outlets and neo-Nazi sympathizers regarding our criminal justice system and its
process. These individuals and organizations should be ashamed for spreading
false information seeking to establish a baseless, illogical and xenophobic
connection between a person’s failure to obtain legal status and their
propensity to commit a sex crime."
say the county has earned a reputation as a "great place to live, work and
raise a family."
sources are members of the Montgomery County Police Department. And the elected
officials who make policy for that Police Department just called the men and
women who wear the badge and put their lives on the line to defend the citizens
of the county Neo Nazi sympathizers.
did these clowns just refer to Montgomery County police as…neo-Nazis. WMAL’s
Larry O’Connor took them to the woodshed for such an absurd insinuation. Yet,
this is what you paid for, MontCo liberals. You don’t want to deport these bad
apples, and now they’re wreaking havoc. Enough with the xenophobia smears too.
That’s such a tried talking point and absolute garbage. These people have
already raped our citizens. They also entered our country illegally—and you
have policies that protect them because you refuse to work with Immigration and
Customs Enforcement. This rests with you guys.
‘Think of Your Mommies,’ Mexican President Says Asking Drug Cartels to Behave
Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) asked drug cartels in Northern Mexico to change their ways and “think of their mommies.” The comment comes after the narco-terrorist Los Zetas cartel threatened to burn down gas stations in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo if they fueled up authorities.
“We have a challenge from this group of delinquents who threatened fuel distributors to not sell gas to the Army,” Mexico’s Vanguardiaquoted AMLO during a public speech in the rural town of Tula, Tamaulipas. “They are wrong, that’s now how things go, I call on them to reconsider, to think about themselves, their families, their mothers, their mommies. To know how much mothers suffer for their sublime love of their children, they ought to think about that.”
During his speech, AMLO asked “delinquents” to start behaving and to stop hurting others.
“Before there was the excuse of lack of jobs,” the Mexican president stated. “We are making sure there are jobs and they rejoin the workforce and can act legally and not hurt their families and their moms who are the ones that worry the most for their children.”

EXCLUSIVE: Mexican Border State Judge Releases Gulf Cartel Chief to House Arrest
MONTERREY, Nuevo Leon – Breitbart Texas identified a Nuevo Leon state judge who released a Gulf Cartel lieutenant from jail and placed him on house arrest. The ruling came despite the seizure of a cache of weapons and armored trucks in relation to the arrest. The defendant was leading a 22-man cell a the time.
Soon after the arrest, agents with Nuevo Leon’s State Investigation’s Agency (AEI) carried out a series of raids in various stash houses around the Monterrey metropolitan area, where they captured 22 Gulf Cartel operators working for El Juanito. As part of the raids, authorities seized armored trucks, weapons, cocaine, and cash.
Despite the nature of the criminal organization, Judge Cardenas Gonzalez ordered El Juanito out of prison. Available court information does not provide any reasoning for the decision.
Breitbart Texas consulted with Mexican federal law enforcement officials who revealed that El Juanito is linked to a large-scale fuel theft operation where various attorneys in Nuevo Leon are identified as providing protection and directly participating in the scheme.
The release of top cartel operators like El Juanito is becoming common practice in Nuevo Leon, while such court rulings go unnoticed or unreported. Earlier this year, another state judge granted the conditional release of Fausto “El Centenario” Cebrian Mendoza, another leading figure in the Gulf Cartel. Authorities caught the leader and seven associates at a bar. While still on house arrest, unknown gunmen killed El Centenario outside a bar in Monterrey. The reason for his release remains unknown.
Editor’s Note: Breitbart Texas traveled to the Mexican States of Tamaulipas, Coahuila, and Nuevo León to recruit citizen journalists willing to risk their lives and expose the cartels silencing their communities. The writers would face certain death at the hands of the various cartels that operate in those areas including the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas if a pseudonym were not used. Breitbart Texas’ Cartel Chronicles are published in both English and in their original Spanish. This article was written by Tony Aranda from Nuevo Leon.

El Chapo Trial: Former Mexican President Peña Nieto Took $100 Million Bribe, Witness Says
The bribe was delivered to Enrique Peña Nieto, the former president of Mexico, through an intermediary, according to a witness at the trial of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the drug lord known as El Chapo.
By Alan Feuer
The former president of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, took a $100 million bribe from Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the infamous crime lord known as El Chapo, according to a witness at Mr. Guzman’s trial.
The stunning testimony was delivered Tuesday in a New York courtroom by Alex Cifuentes Villa, a Colombian drug lord who worked closely with Mr. Guzmán from 2007 to 2013, when the kingpin was hiding from the law at a series of remote ranches in the Sierra Madre mountains.
“Mr. Guzmán paid a bribe of $100 million to President Peña Nieto?” Jeffrey Lichtman, one of Mr. Guzmán’s lawyers, asked Mr. Cifuentes during cross-examination.
“Yes,” Mr. Cifuentes said.
Mr. Guzmán may offer more details soon. Shortly after the jury was excused around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Mr. Lichtman submitted his client’s name to the prosecution as a potential witness for the defense, confirming that the drug trafficker might testify in his own trial.
Mr. Lichtman said that adding Mr. Guzman’s name to the witness list does not guarantee that he will testify. It is simply “possible.”
“If I didn’t put him on the list, it would possibly foreclose the possibility for him to testify,” Mr. Lichtman said in an interview. “So, I was just being inclusive.”
Mr. Guzmán’s testimony would be a stunning development. While his lieutenants have shared details about the Sinaloa cartel’s operations, the kingpin himself could offer even more intimate information, such as how he possibly bribed a president of Mexico.
According to Mr. Cifuentes, Mr. Peña Nieto first reached out to Mr. Guzmán about the time he was elected president in late 2012, asking the drug lord for $250 million in exchange for calling off a nationwide manhunt for him.
But Mr. Guzmán made a counteroffer, Mr. Cifuentes added, saying he would give Mr. Peña Nieto only $100 million.
“The message was that Mr. Guzmán didn’t have to stay in hiding?” Mr. Lichtman asked.
“Yes,” Mr. Cifuentes said, “that very thing is what Joaquin said to me.”
Mr. Lichtman, quoting Mr. Cifuentes’s notes from an interview he gave to American authorities in 2016, asked whether Felipe Calderón, who preceded Mr. Peña Nieto as Mexico’s president, took a bribe in 2008 from one of Mr. Guzmán’s rivals, the Beltrán-Leyva brothers.
“I don’t recall this incident very well,” Mr. Cifuentes answered. He added moments later, “Right now, I do not remember that.”
Mr. Peña Nieto and Mr. Calderón could not yet be reached for comment.
While other witnesses at Mr. Guzmán’s trial in Federal District Court in Brooklyn have testified about huge payoffs from traffickers to the Mexican police and public officials, the testimony about Mr. Peña Nieto was the most egregious allegation yet. If true, it suggests that corruption by drug cartels had reached into the highest level of Mexico’s political establishment.
After testifying about the two presidents, Mr. Cifuentes rattled off other bribes that Mr. Guzmán and his allies had paid to Mexican officials. On at least two occasions, he said, the kingpin gave the Mexican military between $10 million and $12 million to launch operations to “either kill or capture” associates of the Beltrán-Leyva brothers during his war with them.
Mr. Cifuentes also said the Mexican federal police not only turned a blind eye to drug trafficking, but occasionally took part in it. Once, he told jurors, traffickers gave the police photographs of several suitcases packed with cocaine that were sent by the cartel on an airplane from Argentina to Mexico. The police picked up the suitcases from the baggage claim, Mr. Cifuentes said, and sold the drugs themselves.
All of this came on Mr. Cifuentes’s exhausting second day as a witness at Mr. Guzmán’s trial. He has already confessed to a staggering array of crimes.
On the stand, Mr. Cifuentes admitted to hatching a failed murder plot with the Hell’s Angels in Canada. He acknowledged buying plastic explosives from the widow of a Honduran drug trafficker. He said he paid a judge in Ecuador $500,000 to throw out the case of an Ecuadorean military officer accused of working with the cartel, adding that he later helped kidnap the officer when it seemed that he was cheating Mr. Guzmán.
There were lurid hints that top Mexican leaders might have been compromised by dirty money from the start of the trial in November. In his opening statement, Mr. Lichtman claimed his client had been framed for years by a conspiracy hatched by his partner, Ismael Zambada García, in league with “crooked” American drug agents and a “completely corrupt” Mexican government, including two of its presidents.
At the time, Mr. Peña Nieto and Mr. Calderón released statements calling the accusations false. The judge in the case, Brian M.
Cogan, later cautioned Mr. Lichtman against making promises to the jury that the evidence in the case would not support.
Then, as the first week of the trial came to an end, Mr. Guzmán’s lawyers informed Judge Cogan at a sidebar conference that a coming witness, Jesus Zambada García, Ismael Zambada’s brother, would testify, if asked, that Mexican presidents had taken bribes from the Sinaloa drug cartel.
But Judge Cogan forbade the testimony, citing the embarrassment it would cause to unnamed “individuals and entities” who were not directly involved in the case.
On Tuesday, however, Judge Cogan allowed Mr. Cifuentes to testify about what he knew concerning bribes to Mexican presidents with only a few interruptions.
At one point, under questioning by Mr. Lichtman, Mr. Cifuentes acknowledged that his personal assistant, Andrea Velez Fernandez, had worked for a political consultant, J.J. Rendón, who was hired by Mr. Peña Nieto’s presidential campaign. Mr. Cifuentes said Ms. Velez had once sent him photographs of “suitcases filled with cash.”
When Mr. Lichtman asked if the suitcases were “destined for Mr. Peña Nieto,” prosecutors objected on the grounds of relevance.
“Agreed,” Judge Cogan said.
After that, there was no more discussion of the suitcases.
BUT DOES FOX BELONG TO THE LA RAZA HEROIN CARTELS?
"Also, Rubin did not mention the moral responsibility of the child’s father who brought her through the desert in an apparent effort to use the catch-and-release Flores loophole to get past border guards. The loophole was created by Judge Dolly Gee who has ordered border officials to release migrants after 20 days if they bring a child with them."
Two former Mexican presidents publicly denied taking bribes from the Sinaloa Cartel. The statements came after the legal defense for Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera made contrary claims this week.
The drug lord is facing several money laundering and drug trafficking charges at a federal trial in New York. In his opening statement, defense attorney Jeffrey Lichtman spoke of bribes “including the very top, the current president of Mexico and the former.”
Soon after the statements became public, Mexico’s government issued a statement denying the allegations. Eduardo Sanchez, the spokesman for current Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said the statements were false and “defamatory.”
El gobierno de @EPN persiguió, capturó y extraditó al criminal Joaquín Guzmán Loera. Las afirmaciones atribuidas a su abogado son completamente falsas y difamatorias
Under Guzman’s leadership, the Sinaloa Cartel became the largest drug trafficking organization in the world with influence in every major U.S. city.
The allegations against Pena Nieto are not new. In 2016, Breitbart News reported on an investigation by Mexican journalists which revealed how Juarez Cartel operators funneled money into the 2012 presidential campaign. The investigation was carried out by Mexican award-winning journalist Carmen Aristegui and her team. The subsequent scandal became known as “Monexgate” for the cash cards that were given out during Peña Nieto’s campaign. The allegations against Pena Nieto went largely unreported by U.S. news outlets.

Foreign meddling? Mexican ex-envoy urges Mexico to sic Trump's US political opponents on him
That's the threat we read from Arturo Sarukhan, a former Mexican ambassador to the U.S. who wrote in an op-ed in the Financial Times Sunday stating that while Mexico was "the adult in the room" for placating Trump over his threat to impose tariffs if Mexico doesn't halt the border surge of late, he wanted to see Mexico get a lot tougher on the U.S. over the agreement it made. Quite explicitly, he asked Mexico to use President Trump's domestic political opponents against him if Trump gets any tougher on Mexico for failing to keep up its end of the bargain, as the latter has vowed to do.
Mr López Obrador should not blink and kowtow as both countries ascertain whether Mexico’s efforts to deter Central American transmigration have worked. But if Mr Trump does return to the warpath, Mexico needs to hold the line and work with its many allies and stakeholders in the US to pile political pressure on the White House.
"Many allies and stakeholders in the U.S."? Does the writer of this, the Mexican ambassador from the country's previous conservative administration (2007–2013) mean registered foreign agents? Because he's certainly calling on Mexico's current president to ask these people to do Mexico's bidding. Sounds like a real interesting one for the lawmen to look into, now that they are busting people on that rap for not registering these days, as Tony Podesta and Paul Manafort can attest.
Or does he mean activating and working with House speaker Nancy Pelosi? Look how cozy he is with her, in this 2009 Cinco de Mayo celebration photo posted on one of Pelosi's own Flickr sites.
He ends his op-ed with a warning to Trump that he won't like the result if he gets any tougher with Mexico in trying get it to keep its end of the bargain in trying to halt the border surge:
In the coming weeks and months, while Mr Trump plays checkers, Mexico will need to play chess. The US has had the luxury of an ally nation at its southern border for decades. Wrecking the new US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, and its political and economic foundations, will have a hugely detrimental impact on the bilateral relationship that has been built so painstakingly since the creation of Nafta and in the aftermath of 9-11. Mr Trump should be very careful what he wishes for.
Careful what he wishes for? What we are reading here is a threat, from a foreign power, to activate Trump's domestic leftist enemies (and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce) against him, all in the name of advancing Mexico's interests.
Sarukhan is not a Mexican official now, but as a former senior diplomat, he remains a pretty influential person linked to Mexico. It's not far-fetched to ask if he remains in contact with the Mexican government. We know he has some impressive buddies on that front — as well as some impressive ones over here, given his long exposure to life in the states.
The Chinese often will use someone outside government to state what they really think, while maintaining a cover of deniability. It's quite possible Mexico is using Sarukhan through this tactic, too.
Sarukhan also is an experienced professional diplomat. He knows how to choose his words precisely and avoid gaffes, which is the bottom-line work of diplomacy. There is no doubt he meant to write what he wrote with that threat.
In making a statement like this, it's quite possible to think Mexico has effectively announced that it will work to oppose the elected president to advance its own national interests. One can only wonder what exactly they have in mind.
Whatever it is, it's foreign meddling. So where are the Democrats' howls? Don't hear them, at least not yet, and given that Democrats are clearly the people Sarukhan is talking about getting the help from, don't expect we will. But it doesn't make the matter any less outrageous to voters here, who'd like to be able to choose their president for what he says he will do for them without foreign powers placing their interests ahead of them and using local pawns to get it all done. Sunlight is about the only tool we have for now. They're coming for our president.
Key Cartel Operative’s Murder near Arizona Border Sparks Fears of Escalated Violence
The murder of a key Sinaloa cartel operative near the Arizona border in Mexico sparked fears of escalated violence with a looming cartel war.
Municipal police in colonias Nuevas in the Valle de Mexicali (located near the Arizona border) responded to numerous reports of shots fired. The call came it at approximately 7:30 p.m. about gunfire inside the cemetery on the outskirts of the rural community. Upon arrival, police discovered three men laying on the ground near a black BMW.
Officials declared two of the men to be dead at the scene. A third person required transportation to a nearby medical facility for treatment of his gunshot wounds. After further investigation, police identified one of the murder victims as Julio César Aguilar García, aka “El Vaquero”, a key regional Sinaloa cartel operative linked to Ismael Zambada García “El Mayo”, the leader of the Sinaloa cartel. They identified the second victim as Rodolfo Antonio Galindo, aka “El Chupacabras”, also a Sinaloa cartel operative according to local law enforcement sources and media reports. Both, “El Vaquero” and “El Chupacabras” were armed with handguns. Investigators believed the victims were caught by surprise and were unable to retrieve their weapons to defend themselves.
“El Vaquero”, is a well-known cartel operative in and around the municipality of San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora. The community borders San Luis, Arizona, and Mexicali, Baja California, which borders Calexico. The region provides key smuggling routes into the United States with easy access into Arizona and California. The region also provides the key Golfo de Santa Clara which is utilized to receive sea shipments of illicit drugs for eventual transportation to the north and U.S. drug market.
In 2011, elements of the San Luis Rio Colorado municipal police and the Mexican Army captured “El Vaquero” along with five other Sinaloa cartel operatives. “El Vaquero”, had been responsible for supervising the logistics of receiving and moving drug loads through the region. It’s unknown why he was subsequently freed.
In July of this year, a San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora, municipal police officer was gunned down by cartel gunmen. The cartel violence in the border state of Sonora led to numerous attacks on police officers. In 2019, a total of 17 police officers were killed in Sonora.
Earlier this week, Breitbart’s Cartel Chronicles reported on the seizure of 1370 pounds of methamphetamine in two separate operations by the Mexican Army in San Luis Río Colorado.
In June of this year, at least 527 pounds of methamphetamine — worth an estimated $7.2 million — was seized during a joint investigation by local police and federal agents in the Arizona border town of San Luis, Arizona which borders San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora, Mexico.
