Steve King Was Right: 12-Year Old Busted Smuggling Drugs Across the Border

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was right: illegal alien minors have, in fact, been used to smuggle large volumes of illicit drugs into the United States of America on behalf of Mexican drug cartels.

Journalist Lorne Matalon reported for Fronteras in mid-December 2013 that U.S. authorities arrested six Mexican nationals--including four minors--attempting to carry marijuana across the border.

“U.S. Border Patrol agents have arrested six Mexicans with more than 300 pounds of marijuana,” Matalon wrote on Dec. 10, 2013. “Four of the six were juveniles including two 17-year-olds, a 16-year-old and a 12-year-old boy. The arrests took place near a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint south of Marfa, Texas, on the road that links Ojinaga, Chihuahua, with borderland Texas.”

Matalon reported that Border Patrol agents say the group carried the marijuana on their backs and attempted to walk around a checkpoint at which drug sniffing dogs were stationed.

Reportedly, the 12-year-old boy carried the heaviest load of 80 pounds of marijuana.

If this sounds very familiar, it is no accident.

Because Rep. King was lambasted from the Obama Administration -- and even his own Speaker and Majority Leader -- for merely pointing out that this was happening.

In an interview with NewsMax published in mid-July, Rep. King--an fierce opponent against granting amnesty to illegal aliens--made the following statement:

“Some of them are valedictorians — and their parents brought them in,” King argued. “It wasn't their fault. It's true in some cases, but they aren't all valedictorians. They weren't all brought in by their parents.”

For everyone who's a valedictorian, there's another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds — and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert,” King added in the interview. “Those people would be legalized with the same act.”

The pro-amnesty RINOs went ballistic.

House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), a lawmaker pushing a bill called the KIDS Act which would grant amnesty to illegal alien youths, rushed in to attack King. "I strongly disagree with his characterization of the children of immigrants and find the comments inexcusable,” Cantor said at the time.

Less than an hour later, House Speaker John Boehner seconded Cantor’s criticisms. “There can be honest disagreements about policy without using hateful language,” Boehner said in a statement. “Everyone needs to remember that.” here to read the full article... trong>

Oh, but he's NOT just a 12-year old drug-smuggler.....

He votes (sometimes in several districts all on the same day).

He has several drivers' licenses.

When the little rascal's not dealing drugs--- he's cashing US govt checks: UI, SSI, Workmen's Comp, TANF (temporary assistance to needy families), WICS (food assistance), subsidized Section 8 shelter, ObamaPhone subsidies, Utility Assistance subsidies, $5000 a year EITC checks per identity, hefty monthly "asylum" checks from SS ....

Plus he's thrifty---wire transfers large amounts of drug assets and US govt proceeds----for his early retirement in sun-drenched Mexico.

He's applied for in-state tuition to several US colleges (w/ several identities he gets Pell grant checks rolling in regularly).

He's industrious----even applied for a job in Cong Gutierrez's office---where several "Dreamers" are already employed.


NY POST EXCERPT--- Mexican cartels dispatch agents deep inside US - spread into non-border states

CHICAGO (AP) — Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the US border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents to live and work deep inside the United States — an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the world's most lucrative narcotics market and maximize profits. If left unchecked, authorities say, the cartels' move into the American interior could render the syndicates harder than ever to dislodge and pave the way for them to expand into other criminal enterprises such as prostitution, kidnapping-and-extortion rackets and money laundering.

Some cartels even have Mexican operatives fill out job applications before being dispatched to the US, Riley added.

In Mexico, the cartels are known for a staggering number of killings — more than 50,000, according to one tally. Beheadings are sometimes a signature. So far, cartels don't appear to be directly responsible for large numbers of slayings in the United States, though the Texas Department of Public Safety reported 22 killings and five kidnappings in Texas at the hands of Mexican cartels from 2010 through mid- 2011. Still, police worry that increased cartel activity could fuel heightened violence.--SNIP--

In Chicago, the police commander who oversees narcotics investigations, James O'Grady, said street-gang disputes over turf account for most of the city's uptick in murders last year, when slayings topped 500 for the first time since 2008.

Although the cartels aren't dictating the territorial wars, they are the source of drugs. Riley's assessment is stark: He argues that the cartels should be seen as an underlying cause of Chicago's disturbingly high murder rate. "They are the puppeteers," he said. "Maybe the shooter didn't know and maybe the victim didn't know that. But if you follow it down the line, the cartels are ultimately responsible."

The GOPe in Iowa went nuts over this comment, where are they now?

A twit named Doug Gross (former GOPe candidate for governor who got his clock cleaned) said he had had enough of Congressman King. Well Doug, real conservatives in Iowa have had enough of you.

2014... Time to take out the trash.

That beeping sound you hear is the garbage truck backing up to load all the GOPe trash.

Everyone not support 100% Deportation of all Illegal Aliens is pretty much directly aiding and abetting the Drug Cartels and Gangs.

The Drug Cartels would love Illegal Alien Amnesty. They get more drug runners, and, more border crossing business for their “coyotes”

Deportation or Drug Cartels? If you do not support will be supporting the other

Steve King was talking about the best and worst illegals. Keep in mind being a valedictorian at Trayvon Martin or Rachel Jeantel’s school is not a big deal. Some of these schools in Miami, LA and San Antonio are pretty weak. In Newark there were 3 students ready for college.

Most regular illegals are probably below average students if they are from poor urban minority backgrounds. The Haitian students in Miami are not brilliant.

Thanks for posting what GOPe *strategist* Ana Navarro said about the good Rep Steve King. She also criticized his congressional record. She comes across as more of an angry La Raza rep, than a GOP *strategist*.

Rep King has been vindicated, yet Boehner and Cantor hide behind the amnesty veil.

FYI---In Trek North, First Lure Is Mexico’s Other Line
New York Times ^ | April 26, 2013 | By RANDAL C. ARCHIBOLD

In Washington, the (Senate Bill is the) biggest immigration overhaul in decades would tighten border security between Mexico and the United States to stem the flow of illegal crossings.

But there is another border making the task all the more challenging: Mexico’s porous boundary with Central America, where an increasing number of migrants heading to the United States cross freely into Mexico under the gaze of the Mexican authorities. So many Central Americans are fleeing the violence, crime and economic stagnation of their homes that American officials have encountered a tremendous spike in migrants making their way through Mexico to the United States.

American arrests of illegal crossers from countries other than Mexico — mostly from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador — more than doubled along the southwest border of the United States last year, to 94,532 from 46,997 in 2011.


But Mexico has been conflicted about its border. Many here see migrants as Latin American brethren who need humanitarian assistance as they pass through on their journey north. Yet there is also growing concern that migrants may stay longer in Mexico as its economy picks up and it becomes harder to cross into the United States. . .
