A mother in Texas has been arrested for allegedly using her children and teenage sister to smuggle narco cash from Dallas to Mexico.
After pulling over Betzabeth Perez-Torres, 23, in a Mercedes Benz in Combes en route to Brownsville, an officer noticed the three children in the car were fidgeting. The officer became suspicious when Perez-Torres told the children to stop fidgeting and to keep their coats on.
The officer eventually discovered the children had cash in plastic bags wrapped around their waists and hidden by the coats. The two younger children, aged 2 and 6, are said to have been Perez-Torres children, and the 15-year-old her sister.
The bills found in the bags were $20, $50, and $100 bills, and totaled about $150,000.
After being arrested Perez-Torres also admitted to smuggling drugs throughout Texas and said she had planned to meet at the border to hand off the money strapped to the children.
The younger children were given to a family, while Perez-Torres and the 15-year-old were put in the custody of Homeland Security.

He was, however, born in Mexico, and legally immigrated to the US.
You might want to knock off the painting with a broad brush.
Wow. Sounds like a dumb criminals story. They couldn’t think of a better way to conceal the cash in a vehicle?
I assume that a female border control agent found the cash.
So, yeah, just stupid criminals, and the kid was uncomfortable with it.
We have our own local crop, of all races, in my area. Dumb criminals, they are everywhere.
$150k is now in the Obama re-election fund. Consider this a twofer for him

Some of GWB’s ‘family values’...
Check this one out. Gives new meaning to the word ‘cajones’...6 aliens got ticked off at their boss/job and walked off, but wanted a ride out...so they call an ambulance!
Call for ambulance ride leads to arrest for 6 illegal immigrants in Mich.
Men did not need care, taken into custody at work site, handed over to feds
[snip-—be sure to note the last line....]
Six illegal immigrants who were seeking a ride out of the area Thursday following a dispute with their supervisor at a construction site got one, according to Huron County Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson.
Deputies from the Huron County Sheriffs Office took six illegal immigrants into custody after a disagreement at a local construction site.
(The men) were in need of transportation out of the area, Hanson said, adding the situation was remedied when deputies took them (the illegal immigrants) into custody.
Deputy Brad Strozeski was dispatched shortly before 10 a.m. Thursday following a request for an ambulance at the Cooperative Elevator Co. grain elevator construction project location along M-142 near Moore Road in Oliver Township.
Hanson said when Strozeski arrived on scene, an ambulance was not needed. However, the deputy found six males from Mexico who had been working for an out-of-state construction company at the site. The men were standing near the roadway.
Apparently, the men had a disagreement with the on-site construction supervisor, and quit their jobs, Hanson said. The men were transported using a departmental van, to a rendezvous with federal officials for deportation processing. The exchange took place without further incident.
Thursdays incident is the second involving illegal immigrants working for sub-contractors working locally for the Cooperative Elevator Co.
On March 31, 2011, an illegal immigrant working for an Indiana contractor on a silo project at the Cooperative Elevators Ruth location was taken into custody by Bad Axe Police after he allegedly committed a number of minor traffic offenses.
The officer was able to determine the drivers name was Alberto Gomez, and he was an illegal immigrant. The officer also learned three of the passengers in the vehicle at the time were illegal immigrants.
Gomez was taken into custody for driving without a license and later deported. The officer was not able to obtain any further information as to the identity of the other passengers. They were later released when an ICE agent told local police that ICE no longer would place a detainer on illegal immigrants unless they were being lodged on local charges.
Don't ya just love it...?
“Don’t ya just love it...?”
No matter how you slice it, it’s amnesty. If they don’t commit a major crime, they’re home free.
Thank you so much for your up to date lists of articles. I’m too busy these days to follow it all and your list makes it very nice and quick! Be sure to put me on your ping list.
I thought you were already on it but, nope, couldn’t find you. But, you are now. Just keep in mind, it runs Mon - Fri. I take the weekends off.... :>
No one cares. The greedy biz owners who hire their low wage labor only think of profits.
Profits regardless of consequences, will eventually leave America dead on the floor.
We’re surrounded by deceitful lying traitors B.
Hah. Dont believe it for a minute.
This was part of her stash of thievery----US tax dollars collected under several identities---numerous EITC refunds, her disability checks and multiple checks for kids claiming ADD, thousands in defaulted subprime mortgage monies, multiple welfare and UI checks collected under several identities, etc etc etc.
Mamsita will rush back----to get a degree w/ Perry's in-state tuition (then get a good job, taken from a real American).
We need a border fence to keep Mexicans in America now.
Congratulations Obama. You’ve made our country such a shithole the illegal immigrants are trying to get out.
This is not what we meant by immigration reform.
