Hezbollah using Mexican drug routes into U.S.


The Iran-backed terrorist group, Hezbollah, which makes its base of operations in Lebanon is known to be working with the cartels of Mexico not just in drug trafficking but also in trafficking people, says The Washington Times.

Michael Braun, retired assistant administrator and chief operating officer at the Drug Enforcement Administration said that Hezbollah uses "the same criminal weapons smugglers, document traffickers and transportation experts as the drug cartels."

"They work together," said Mr. Braun. "They rely on the same shadow facilitators. One way or another, they are all connected. They'll leverage those relationships to their benefit, to smuggle contraband and humans into the U.S.; in fact, they already are [smuggling]."

The Washington Times piece goes on to say,

"A U.S. official with knowledge of U.S. law enforcement operations in Latin America said, 'we noted the same trends as Mr. Braun' and that Hezbollah has used Mexican transit routes to smuggle contraband and people into the U.S.

Two U.S. law enforcement officers, familiar with counterterrorism operations in the U.S. and Latin America, said that 'it was no surprise' that Hezbollah members have entered the U.S. border through drug cartel transit routes.

'The Mexican cartels have no loyalty to anyone,' one of the officials told The Washington Times. 'They will willingly or unknowingly aid other nefarious groups into the U.S. through the routes they control. It has already happened. That's why the border is such a serious national security issue.'"

Given the fact that the U.S. government has done very little to secure the southern border and that the war with the cartels has greatly intensified in the last couple of years this is very disturbing news.

Where is the concern and outrage that the borders are WAY to open and accessible? It as if we are sitting on lawn chairs, drinking our 'lemonade' and watching someone break into our home!

Common sense says shut the border down. Shoot to kill if trespasser are found.

Tolerance is a disease that will destroy America...
