On Tuesday Arizona law enforcement and federal agents arrested 203 Mexican drug dealers tied to the Sinaloa drug cartel. The agents seized assault rifles, 650 pounds of marijuana, 123 pounds of cocaine and 4.5 pounds of heroin worth an estimated $12.5 million. The Sinaloa drug cartel is one of the most ruthless organizations in the world. That they exist in large numbers in Arizona should surprise no one who follows the issue of illegal immigration.
Don’t bother trying to find the story in The Oregonian. Illegal aliens, the drug cartels, and illicit drugs are not part of The Oregonian's illegal alien narrative. Their spin is that illegal aliens are good people who through no fault of their own find themselves in Oregon, and that we should welcome them. The Oregonian continues to opine against the tough Arizona illegal immigration law while totally ignoring the increasing crime committed by illegal aliens, as well as the $113+ billion annual cost to U.S. taxpayers for services to the illegal alien population, and the various other ill-effects of uncontrolled immigration.
By turning a blind eye to illegal immigration, our government continues to encourage the Mexican drug cartels' ability to spread their influence across the U.S., and Oregon will increasingly feel the effects. We need a President who will enforce the immigration laws in the interior of the U.S. as well as at the borders, and state officials who will cooperate in that enforcement.
