Kind of late to this thread, but...

ELKHART-- Eighteen pounds of pure meth was seized by the Elkhart County Interdiction and Covert Enforcement (ICE) unit Thursday night, according to Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill Jr.

After being cut, that amount of meth could have sold for more than $1.6 million, he said.

Two arrests were made Thursday, but Hill said he anticipates more as the investigation continues.

"This investigation is not over," he said. "This was the real stuff. We're catching this right out of the gate."

In November, the ICE unit received information that Mexican organized crime groups made "a concrete decision" to get Mexican meth back into Elkhart County, said Bill Wargo, chief investigator at the prosecutor's office.

"We have had a big impact on this problem," he said, after Hill cited the dramatic increase from $4,500 to $17,500 per pound of Mexican meth over five years.

That drastic price increase demonstrates that supply was low because of the ICE unit's work getting Mexican meth out of Elkhart County, Wargo said.

A Mishawaka company has a legal price to pay—for hiring illegal aliens.
Today, Janco Composites (as a corporation), and its President (as an individual), pleaded guilty to criminal charges in federal court in South Bend.

Janco Composites faces five years of probation and a fine of $210-thousand to be paid in installments over a two year period.
Janco President Douglas Jaques—as an individual-- faces one year of probation and a fine of $30-thousand.

The plea agreement indicates that Janco had a pattern and practice of hiring illegal Mexican immigrants, and that one of the illegal workers was part of the Human Resources Department.

In March of 2007, officials raided Janco’s Mishawaka factory. During the raid, 36-alleged undocumented workers were arrested.
About a month before the raid, there were ‘rumors’ that one would take place.

The criminal charges were based—in part—on how the Janco corporate culture reacted to the rumors.

Some of Janco’s illegal workers who feared a possible raid were switched from the day shift to the night shift—on the assumption that a raid was less likely to happen in the evening.

When absenteeism persisted, the company suspended a policy of assessing points to punish those who missed work.

The plea agreement also points out that one Janco worker was part of the Human Resources Department.

In 2000, that department was notified that the social security numbers of some of its workers were a ‘no match’ meaning they actually belonged to other people

Woman deported after drug conviction arrested again

A Mexican woman deported from the U.S. after being convicted of drug trafficking in Missouri has been found again, this time in Kansas.

Norma Arias-Garcia will appear in federal court in Kansas City, Kan., on Monday for a bond hearing. Federal prosecutors in Kansas have asked that she be jailed pending her trial on charges that she illegally re-entered the country after her deportation.

Arias-Garcia could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors reported that Arias-Garcia was convicted in Jackson County in 1996 for first-degree drug trafficking and deported in May 1998.

Even our prisons are too good for pigs like this one. The US needs to build a maximum security prison (deducting the cost from foreign aid of course) and give scum like this bread and water 3 times a day. Put a toilet in their cells and only allow them out for fresh air once a week. Maybe then they will get the message that crime will not be rewarded with the equivalent of free room and board with hot meals served daily.

Default Mexican drug gangs wage war

Later that day, Munoz found her son at a morgue with his skull caved in and four bullet holes in his chest. He was among 21 people killed Feb. 10 in this town near the U.S. border after drug gangs abducted several men, then fought a massive running gunbattle with the Mexican army — one of the bloodiest episodes yet in Mexico's war on drugs.

************
That's bad news in broad swaths of the USA, where Mexican drug gangs have extended their operations to at least 230 cities from Texas to Alaska, according to a recent Justice Department report. Police in Atlanta and Phoenix, both major drug transit points, have blamed a wave of kidnappings on the spreading turf war among the cartels. Drug-related violence has become ever more brazen and frequent, including a rise in attacks on Border Patrol agents.
In both Mexico and the USA, most of the victims have been linked to the cartels. Nevertheless, several travel agencies, colleges (including the nearby University of Texas-El Paso)
and even the U.S. military have discouraged travel to Mexico's border areas as spring break approaches — resulting in a loss of crucial tourism dollars that could make the Mexican economic crisis even worse.

Gee, I wonder when "our" government will consider sealing the southern border . . . .

Mexican drug cartels have also increasingly “cemented” ties to street and prison gangs on the U.S. side. U.S. gangs retail drugs purchased from Mexican traffickers and often work as cartel surrogates and enforcers on U.S. soil. Mara Salvatrucha, (MS-13) is one such gang involved in the cross-border drug smuggling business. MS-13 has established a growing presence in cities across the United States. Law enforcement agencies in twenty-eight States have reported MS-13 members are engaged in retail drug trafficking. Drug proceeds are subsequently laundered through seemingly legitimate local businesses.

And when will spring breakers and college partyers realize their extra curricular activities are fanning the fires of this violence.

Where do you think the cartels are getting all their money(i.e. power) from?
Americans.

Where do you think the cartels are getting the guns that are used to hold ground against the Mexican military and police?
America.


Or are the cartels forcing Americans to buy drugs off them, to sell to other Americans that use them?

The drug trade isn't a Mexican problem. It takes two to tango.

So, keep your illegal aliens South of the Border then. It's not like we invite them to carry their drugs on their backs across the desert like mules or beast of burden.

----

During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroine and marijuana, crossed into the U. S. from the Southern border. Homeland Security Report:
http://www.house.gov/mccaul/pdf/Investigaions-Border-Report.pdf

----

In the year of 2005, As much as 5.8 million kilograms of marijuana entered the United States from Mexico. The Mexican cartels, and the smuggling rings and gangs they leverage, wield substantial control over the routes into the United States and pose substantial challenges to U.S. law enforcement to secure the Southwest border. The cartels operate along the border with military grade weapons, technology and intelligence and their own respective paramilitary enforcers.
