The Mexican drug cartels have established distribution networks and supply lines in 230 communities across the United States, and Southern Ohio is one of them where Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer routinely makes busts as reported by WKEF: "in fact, he says they arrest at least 50 people from the cartel each year," and "'they're illegal they cannot live in our country so, when we do get our hands on them, we call ICE.'"
Butler County in southwest Ohio is a transit point for the Mexican cartels -- principally the Sinaloa cartel and La Familia -- according to Sgt. Mike Hackney who commands the Undercover Regional Narcotics Unit as reported by the Journal-News: "'we are part of a prime area with the interstates and proximity to Louisville, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Chicago, Dayton and Detroit,' Hackney said."
How the hell is it that a country supposedly as freakin' powerful as the United States can't get sufficient control over its border to keep out degenerate narcos? Remember kids: organized crime cannot exist without political corruption, and nothing is getting over the border that the stinkin' politicians don't want coming over the border.
Yadira "Pini" Villalvazo was deported from the United States after a 2002 federal drug conviction but federal prosecutors allege that from her Tijuana base she still directs a distribution network for the Sinaloa Cartel in San Diego through local gangbangers many of whom were busted last week as reported by KSWB: "Villalvazo's drug trafficking organization supplied at least 25 percent of the heroin sold and consumed in North County and grossed tens of thousands of dollars in proceeds that were sent back to Mexico, according to court documents."
Arizona rancher Jim Chilton became so disgusted with narco traffickers pouring over the border from Mexico onto his property that he installed "hidden motion-sensor-activated cameras [which] have captured hundreds of smugglers crossing" as reported by KPNX: "often they're geared up with high tech equipment, military grade satellite phones, radios and binoculars," and "we've seen cartel guys with AK-47's and 20 guys packing drugs behind them."
