(Tea Party PAC) – One of the biggest threats to our national security is without a doubt Mexican cartels and the members of these organizations who find a way to get across the border and enter our country, bringing nefarious plots along with them for the ride.
Fortunately, we have a man in the White House who is dedicated to take these guys down. President Trump has been enacting lots of legislation and measures designed to improve security and help make America safe again, most notably his plan to build a wall, which has slowly but surely been happening.
Trump recently stated that he’s going to designate Mexican cartels terrorist organizations, a move which should have these folks shaking in their boots.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
“The Mexican drug cartels kill more than 100,000 Americans every year by the importation of dangerous narcotics,” O’Reilly said to President Trump during an interview aired on O’Reilly.com. “Are you going to designate those cartels in Mexico as terror groups?”
“They will be designated … I have offered him (the Mexican president) to let us go in and clean it out,” President Trump responded. “He, so far, has rejected the offer. But at some point, something has to be done.”
The president explained that the cartels have “unlimited money” from drug smuggling and human trafficking.
“I’ve been working on that for the last 90 days,” Trump stated. “You know, designation is not that easy, you have to go through a process, and we are well into that process.”
The President told Breitbart News earlier this year that he was thinking about the designation. “We’re thinking about doing it very seriously. In fact, we’ve been thinking about it for a long time,” he said during an Oval Office interview.
“It’s psychological, but it’s also economic,” the President explained. “As terrorists — as terrorist organizations, the answer is yes. They are.”
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) told reporters on Monday that he would not accept a move to designate cartels as FTOs, Breitbart Texas reported. “We will never accept that, we are not ‘vendepatrias’ (nation sellers),” the Mexican president stated.
“On Monday morning, Lopez Obrador’s foreign relations minister Marcelo Ebrard called designations unnecessary and inconvenient, adding that the U.S. and Mexico have a healthy working relationship in fighting cartels,” Breitbart Texas journalist Ildefonso Ortiz and Breitbart Border/Cartel Chronicles project Director Brandon Darby wrote. “According to Ebrard, terrorist designations would give the U.S. the legal avenue to take direct action on cartels on Mexican soil.”
In March, U.S. Representative Chip Roy (R-TX) introduced legislation to direct the U.S. State Department to designate certain factions of Mexican cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations, Breitbart Texas reported at the time.
“Cartels are the problem and it is time we started acting like it,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said in a written statement. “My colleague Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) and I are asking Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to conduct a review in order to designate these specific Mexican drug cartels Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs).”
The bill from the Republican representatives calls for the designation of the following cartel factions as FTOs:
• The Reynosa/Los Metros faction of the Gulf Cartel
• The Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG)
• The Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas
Breitbart News’ Cartel Chronicles is on the front line reporting the gruesome crimes carried out by these groups. And Brandon Darby has been leading the call for more than three years in calling for the designation of certain cartel factions as FTOs.
This is what real leadership looks like. The left has been raking the president over the coals, and much of the reasoning behind that is the false narrative that he is some sort of horrible racist, but that’s not at all the case.
Trump has been cracking down hard on illegal immigration, something that’s been harming our nation for years and years now. The left sees this not as racism, but as a big blow to their plot to expand their voter rolls using illegal immigrants. This is why they go so hard after that particular demographic and try to appease them as much as possible.
We’ve had such lax leadership in the White House for so long that when a man dares to enforce the laws we currently have on the books it feels like a shock to the system. Folks, this is the way a leader acts. It’s time to get the fire and spine back in leadership for this country.
