DHS Complicit In Drug Cartel Human Trafficking
Investor's Business Daily ^ | December 21, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 12/21/2013 7:55:52 AM PST by raptor22

Border: A federal judge finds that the Department of Homeland Security, instead of arresting cartel members and the clients who pay them to smuggle children into the U.S., helps the drug lords complete the transactions.

Former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano once proclaimed the U.S. border to be as secure as it has ever been. Yet her department has been found by Judge Andrew S. Hanen of the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Texas to have actively undermined that security by enabling drug cartels engaged in the lucrative smuggling of children.

The case before Judge Hanen — United States of America v. Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez — underscores the Obama administration's total disregard for the laws that the president swore to faithfully execute.

It also shows that the administration's cooperation with the cartels goes far beyond supplying them with assault weapons in Operation Fast and Furious.

As Breitbart.com has reported, the case involved Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez, an admitted human trafficker who came in contact with Patricia Elizabeth Salmeron Santos after she "solicited human traffickers to smuggle" Santos' daughter from El Salvador to her home in Virginia, according to Hanen.

Hanen said Santos "applied for a tourist visa in 2000, but was turned down," adding, "despite being denied legal entry into the United States, she entered the United States illegally and is living in Virginia." Santos hired Nava-Martinez and her smugglers for $8,500, paying them $6,000 upfront.

Lock down the border. Jail those that cross illegally in outsourced prisons located in India and China.

I heard rumors of this from a friend about a year or so ago who was with the Border Patrol for about 10 years. He said that he has friends that are still with the BP that have been told to turn their backs on certain tour bus lines from Mexico. Maybe I need to give him a call...: )

Why not? Obama is POTUS illegally - shouldn’t be in office and has no legal right to be there...if he can break the top level of federal law - then anything goes at this point...

I though Bill Clinton smoking dope was a big issue back in the day and lead to increasing number of youth trying it - since the Pres did it - then it must be okay...now Barry has topped Bill so to speak...why even have laws at this point...it’s a free world - free choices - that’s what the liberals are all saying...right? — so let’s do to them what they have done to us and get on with real responsibility and living...

"the Obama administration's total disregard for the laws"

This must be that 'fundamental transformation' that The One talked about. He has proved beyond a doubt that the current system (constitution) is not up to the job of restraining a determined dictator if Congress won't act. The gutless RINOs in Congress should be doing their duty and slinging members of the Administration IN JAIL wholesale to encourage the rest. What are they doing instead - Daryl Baby gives them a very severe talking to and tells them to be good. SLING THEM IN JAIL -NOW.

“Lock down the border. Jail those that cross illegally in outsourced prisons located in India and China.”

I think that the regime will take a close look at your recommendation. Any US citizen caught crossing the border OUT of the US with their money will probably be looking at prison time in some hellhole.

Human trafficking is closely related to drug trafficking and prostitution, two big cash industries.

Obama is a rogue President and a criminal. He and all his minions need to be removed from office and tried for treason and crimes against humanity. The longer these illegal fiends remain ensconced in office, the worse things become.

I hope the GOP leadership is at this very moment preparing articles of impeachment against this treasonous, murdering racist Muslim bastard to act on after the 2-14 mid-terms.

We could elect a GOP President and Congress and we wouldn’t undo all this for a generation.

A journey of a thousand paces begins with a single footstep and the best footstep would on the head of that snake in the Oval Office. Impeach him and go after his cronies and create the kind of exposition NO media organ can ignore and his goose is cooked and America is once more heading in the right direction.

He has been pretty much discredited with the millenials who helped put him in office and his popularity is at a record low for any President.

The GOP just has to play its chess game very very carefully at this point.

Senator Johnson from Wisconsin was on Larry Cudloe this morning and he laid out a very good GOP alternate to Obamacare, offering coverage to everybody under a free market system. At least some GOPers are thinking right.

DON’T abandon hope for America. Its greater than the monsters threatening it like the Obamabastard.

No. The real problem is not the Obamabastard but the people who helped put him in power - twice.

Thanks for posting. I think that article fits right in with the picture painted below...

Fast and Furious etc. is state-sponsored terrorism.

On this side of the border it's violations of the RICO Act. In Mexico and Honduras it's state-sponsored terrorism.

What else would you call heavily arming international criminal syndicates within a foreign country wherein that country is in a death struggle with those syndicates?

Especially when it goes beyond thousands of assault rifles to include grenades, RPGs, shoulder fired rockets, anti-aircraft guns, night vision equipment, body armor and special deals to bring their drugs onto our soil with legal impunity?

Not to mention that the rip crew that killed BP Agent Brian Terry was there with DEA and FBI assistance and approval to attack and kill a rival cartel's smuggling crew.

Let's not leave out the DEA laundering millions of dollars for the drug cartels by setting up bank accounts for them that they otherwise couldn't do.

It's organized, it is spread through every Federal LEA and it violates numerous domestic laws and numerous statutes and treaties that deal with foreign nations. Yet none of it has been officially sanctioned. It's the FedGov acting like mafiosa.

0bama, Holder and Hillary Clinton are all deeply involved in this and it is state-sponsored terrorism. These criminal thugs are dragging our country down to the level of Tehran and Pyongyang.

Of course, friend.

LOL. I thought you were just being snarky. I'd almost be willing to pay money for an article in the NYT about this.
