There is a war raging on the US border with Mexico, and it is not being fought in any traditional sense of the word.
All along the border that separates the United States from our southern neighbors, illicit smuggling routes exist. These trails, tunnels, and pathways are the key to keeping the Mexican cartels profitable, as they move narcotics and cash north in exchange for human cargo and more cash coming south. This black market is worth billions of dollars, making these Mexican criminal cartels as powerful in some cases as the government forces who are attempting to curb them.
Now, in a brazen stunt, the head of one such gang has put out a bounty on a Texas-centric journalist.
This week, Cesar “El Boto” or “El Marrueco” Sepulveda Arellano, a leading member of Los Viagras Cartel, placed a $100,000 USD hit on Breitbart Texas’s Jose Luis Lara. The former founding member of the Self-Defense Movement in Michoacan writes about terrorist actions by cartels and their corrupt government enablers in that state and beyond.
The assassination order was posted on social media through various Facebook accounts. A similar threat was also spread via audio recording where El Boto declared Lara a spy for the United States.
Luckily, it didn’t take long for Mexican authorities to apprehend the vile scum.
Only 48 hours after a top cartel boss in Mexico placed an assassination hit on one of the contributing writers for Breitbart Texas’s Cartel Chronicles project, Mexican military forces captured him.
When stories such as this one break, it is important to remember that the democrats seem wholly interested in the idea of open borders, in which this sort of criminality would be allowed to run rampant in the borderlands and beyond.
