Get them out of the country. We don't need more issues.

Quote:
Undercover agents became aware of their main suspect three months ago, after Arizona passed Senate Bill 1070 — the new immigration law that allows police to search anyone for valid documentation of citizenship.
"Our target received a dispatch from Mexico, and was told to leave Phoenix because of the new immigration law," said an undercover case agent whose name is being withheld to protect his identity. "He was told to set up shop in Oklahoma City. Fortunately, in a very short time, we learned of his presence and were able to infiltrate his operation."

The Arizona bill is working for good before it is put into effect.

Round of applause for the law enforcement team that made this happen.

This is why this has to do with illegal immigration. But the OP needs to explain this in his introductory post and/or quote the relevant passages.

The Arizona bill is not specifically targeting drug smugglers; it is targeting everyone who is illegally in Arizona. I think this is just a coincidential side effect. Remember that some things in life are coincidences.

If Arizona got a "Texas Rangers"-style law enforcement agency which captured this guy, then I would be crediting Arizona.

The DEA says that Mexican drug cartels are in every state now.

As long as people keep buying drugs, that will happen.

If weed is legalized, it will diminish the marketplace for Mexican drugs, as people will grow it legally here.

The target — a 35-year-old Mexican national — represents the strongest evidence to date that the Sinaloa Cartel is trying to establish a foothold in Oklahoma City, which has traditionally been the territory of the equally notorious Juarez Cartel, OBN Executive Director Darrell Weaver said.
And to think, all this time I thought Oklahoma City was U.S. territory......

It obviously has to do with illegal immigration - a tiny minority of illegals is here doing nothing but picking lettuce, a great number of them are about the big drug trafficking that goes on.

This drug cartel boss may have been here legally - that's how very lax the laws on legal immigration actually are, but he could also have been here illegally because essentially there is no border.

Anyone can easily come here for any reason at all.

I'm not sure if it would be correct to say the majority of illegals do drug smuggling. Jan Brewer of Arizona said that most illegals do drug smuggling, but...
* John McCain disputed Brewer's claim: FOXNews.com - McCain Disputes Brewer's Claim That Most Illegal Immigrants Smuggling Drugs
* Brewer is insisting by her claim: FOXNews.com - Arizona Gov. Stands by Claim That Most Illegals Smuggle Drugs Into Country
So this isn't an agreed fact

Now, in regards to it being "obviously" having to do with illegals, the OP failed to demonstrate this with the section he posted. There are many smuggling cases which involve people who are legally in the country. He could have easily quoted the passages discussing how the guy left Arizona due to SB 1070.

This suspect could have fled to a jurisdiction where he could keep himself hidden easily. It was lucky for us that he chose Oklahoma and got busted there. I would give Arizona credit if a Arizona law enforcement with powers like the Texas Rangers had captured him.

his legal status is not known. what is known is that he is a drug dealer. a criminal who would rather lay low.
he was probably warned to stay away from cities and states where police action and presence is very strong. its like saying, dont go to the policemans ball, there are officers everywhere. dont go to such and such bar, its a cop bar. or on this case, dont go to AZ, they arrest brown people there. (i dont particularly beleive this, just presenting a hypothetical)
if his movements are due to his legal status is unknown. i think it has more to do with his line of work. drug dealers are they most paranoid individuals. they change houses and cars constantly.
