A "Lebanese drug kingpin who allegedly has connections to the Zeta drug cartel and Hezbollah has been charged with drug dealing and money laundering" as reported by Jason Ryan for ABC News: "Ayman Joumaa, a.k.a 'Junior,' and his associates allegedly shipped an estimated 85,000 kilograms of cocaine into the United States and laundered more than $850 million in drug money coming out of Mexico from the Zeta cartel through front companies and The Lebanese Canadian Bank (LCB)."
According to a former U.S. intelligence agent terror group Hezbollah has established itself in Mexico, and is providing explosives training to the drug cartels:
He told 10News the group receives cartel cash and protection in exchange for Hezbollah expertise. "From money laundering to firearms training and explosives training," the agent said. * * * Tunnels the cartels have built that cross from Mexico into the U.S. have grown increasingly sophisticated. It is a learned skill, the agent said points to Hezbollah's involvement.
Last fall Iran -- a long-time sponsor of Hezbollah -- allegedly hoped to involve a Mexican drug cartel in a plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia's Ambassador to the United States but thankfully the solicited man was a DEA informant which resulted in the terror bust.
Many critics of the U.S. open border policy long have warned that Muslim terror groups may exploit the smuggling routes which have been established by the drug cartels in order to gain entry into the United States.

Yet another reason for America-hating Pres_dent O’moslem to give the Cartels guns.
Imagine that! Seems terrorists have found the open door and noticed the welcome signs left for illegals. If we are serious about securing this country we must secure the border. No excuses, just secure it. You can put the best security system out there on your house- secure it like Fort Knox, if you leave a door unlocked all the security in the world is meaningless.
Any bets on how many posts this thread will get? Any bets on how many open border supporters will later claim this is just not happening and will never happen?
This is spiraling out of control.
I think we are officially beyond profit margins, now.
Hezbollah is funded by Iran. Any money received from the dhimmi cartels should be considered tribute. I doubt Hezbollah involvement in Mexico would disappear if that tribute dried up. They can smell their destruction of the Great Satan from down Mexico way.
