SAN DIEGO -- A reserve deputy with the Imperial County Sheriff's Department has been arrested on suspicion of smuggling illegal immigrants into the U.S., officials said.

Elizabeth Hernandez, 23, of El Centro, was arrested Wednesday after being spotted by Border Patrol agents smuggling three illegal immigrants past a checkpoint on Highway 86 near Salton City, prosecutors said.

The three were in the trunk of Hernandez's personal car, according to prosecutors. She was wearing her uniform and carrying her department-issued firearm, court documents indicate.

Hernandez admitted to agents that she has smuggled immigrants about eight times and has been paid more than $40,000 by the leader of a smuggling operation, according to court documents.

She allegedly told agents she wore her uniform "because she expected to be waived" through the checkpoint as a result.

A co-defendant, Edna Calderon, 22, of El Centro, was arrested in connection with the same incident, officials said.

I will be very upset if I detect any generalizations on this thread. You have been warned.

The amount she has been paid should be seized and given to those or the next of kin of those that have been injured by an illegal.

This isn’t the first time that law enforcement people have been caught working for the Mexican gangs. There have been convictions of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Border Patrol officers in San Diego Federal Court in recent years. Typically the those convicted are Mexican American affirmative action candidates with relatives on both sides of the border.

Our President, our Congress, our judicial system, and numerous other lawmakers and policy-makers are marching in lockstep to the dictates of the Third World---sucking up to facilitators of the US invasion.

It is a calculated invasion--- designed to infiltrate and corrupt the US political/judicial/economic system----to rig the system----using illegals as pressure groups and voting blocs. The goal: reconquista, and foreign aid billions blanketing these decrepit countries.

CONNECT THE DOTS Cledarly, Mexico is pushing North at a furious pace. MEXICO is the 10th richest nation on Earth, with state-owned oil and minerals monopolies, state-owned tourist beaches, where the world's richest man lives.

Mexican Federales pocket $25 billion annually in "remittances" from illegal invaders riding the US gravy train. The racist Mexican govt rids itself of its poorest to mooch off US taxpayers.

Travel brochures cite the do-nothing Dominican Republic's reliance on the billion dollars per year its nationals here illegally send home to impoverished families.

THE GIMME ZOMBIES Mexico and the Third World are financing the invasion of ne'er do wells over the border---ridding itself of its criminals and lowlifes who are cued to suck-up US tax dollars under several identities. And deranged, vote-crazed politicians cater to these parasites.

It’s a joke. It’s not PC to generalize about... oh, never mind.

A joke one has to explain is not a very good joke, obviously.
