LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Police in southern California have arrested 60 people and broken up an Iraqi criminal ring accused of selling drugs, machine guns and improvised bombs out of an immigrant social club, authorities said on Thursday.
The swoop by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and local police targeted a network operating out of El Cajon, which is near San Diego and close to the border with Mexico.

These Iraqi’s are Christian immigrants. They have managed to accumulate some wealth and some of them live in very large multi-generational houses in El Cajon and other places. I mean huge houses. So now we know where they got their money.
Lemme guess, more U.S. government approved immigrants.
It never ends
These Iraqis are Christian immigrants.
lol...There just more criminal immigrants being forced on the U.S. by the corrupt government. Apparently millions of illegals from Mexico, pouring in, isn't doing the job quick enough.
“Lemme guess, more U.S. government approved immigrants.”
Almost right....more Democrat votes.
They stand down at the airports and borders rolling out the red carpet for hundreds of thousands more foreigners.
Why don't the government just start strafing us?
I’m shocked!!! /sarc
Not to be racist, but Iraqis and Mexicans DO look a lot alike
and we were warned YEARS ago about something like this happening!
Did we listen? Of course not!
Possibly waiting on the one to make the call. The radical moslems in Egypt, Libya, North Africa, and several other countries, as well as the moslem brotherhood are beholding to and owe enormous favors to the one. It is only a matter of time before the call is made .... imho
Don’t give them any ideas.
Nobody reads the papers! We are supposed to scared of white guys.
Those attempting to convince all our foreign policies are just peachy, like with Mexico for instance, won't talk about the tens of thousands of Muslims and criminals being imported from the Mideast and Red China for the past 15 years or so. They're the same ones for the past decade to two, attempted to minimize the results of their own government leading the conga-line of tens of millions of illegal aliens into hometown USA.
Yep, that is one large army on home soil. Best guess is approximately four million strong, at this point. I maybe am underestimating the size. One can bet the weapons have been being smuggled and hidden for that long a period also (15 years).
police said the criminal organization of individuals of Iraqi descent had suspected ties to the Chaldean Organized Crime Syndicate... The group has historical ties to Mexico's Sinaloa Cartel and the Mexican Mafia, a Mexican-American prison gang, the police said.
The six-month long investigation led to seizures of marijuana, methamphetamine, ecstasy, heroin, and prescription drugs including Vicodin, Oxycontin, Codeine, Xanex and Percocet, El Cajon police said in a statement.
Additional seizures include over $630,000 in cash, three luxury cars and 34 firearms including machine guns and semi-automatic assault rifles, as well as four improvised explosive devices, or IEDs.
Simple Jail the rubbish then deport them back to Iraq!
If you want to see tacky and gaudy wealth, go to those houses, always get your money up front, at every step of the way if you deal with them.
The Chaldeans have owned/operated the liquor/tobacco/porn business for 15 years in the San Diego area. They have lots off money, big houses and fancy cars. I always suspected there was more going on. Their big church building on Chase & Anza in El Cajon was vacated and sold over the last year. Many Iraqis that hung out at the Starbucks at Jamacha & Willow Glen have disappeared in the last year. Bad economy.
The government is going to let armed gangs do the strafing. Big cities will be giant cage fights with “law enforcement” maintaining a perimeter around the kill zone.
In 2005, more people from Muslim countries became legal permanent United States residents nearly 96,000 than in any year in the previous two decades.
There were tens of thousands more, simply welcomed in.
These would make great neighbors for Abu Bush,The guy that loved Mexicans and Muslims more than American Citizens!
