The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced Wednesday that more than 600 arrests have been made as a result of an interagency operation cracking down on Mexican cartel activity.
Project Python, a DEA-led initiative, targeted members of Cártel de Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG). According to the DEA, over the last six months federal law enforcement officials have been monitoring the activities of the accused.
The operation resulted in more than 600 arrests nationwide, 350 indictments and significant seizures of money and drugs, according to the agencies.
Project Python marks the most comprehensive action to date in the Department of Justices campaign to disrupt, dismantle, and ultimately destroy CJNG, Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski said in a statement.
Benczkowski cited an executive order President Trump passed shortly after Trump was inaugurated in 2017 that condemned cartel operations in the U.S. and directed federal law enforcement to use the Threat Mitigation Working Group, which was put in place by the Obama administration in 2011.

Excellent news. Corona-Schamona, nothing stops POTUS from keeping his promises.
There are now over 150,000 sealed indictments. Hope this is a start on breaking the dam of corruption and lawlessness.
“Drug dealers and junkies hit the hardest.”
Bad news for Democrats, I suppose.
this is exactly the type of stuff that the Republican establishment and their allies in the dem/media party hate. The establishment of both parties are up to their eyeballs in corruption of all kinds.
They’re children! Separated from their families!

I have always wondered just how many well connected people in DC are drug addicts or just get paid off by the cartels.

I suspect its a significant number. Billions of dollars in untraceable cash is like catnip to your typical DC swamp Rats and RINOs. A porous border helps to insure that cartel deliveries are made on time all of the time.
Their campaign financing will be adversely effected.

I dream of them being bused back to Mexico!!!
I am now waiting for the importers of Corona beer to be arrested. This virus needs to be stopped at is source.
You ever notice that foreign suds, which are taxed to import, are something the deep state really cares if they enter the country legally or not?
“Alleged”. And I’m sure Demonrats will put up MILLION$ to defend them all in court.
Lil’ Jebby Bush did deeply saddened. What about love?
Good news! Throw them down the nearest deep well.
600 in three years? Drop in the bucket.
