While the entire nation focuses on the growing threat of radical Islamic attacks in the West, there’s still an ongoing war on the southern border of the United States and it just got a lot worse.
Thanks to Obama’s willingness to allow undocumented illegal immigrants into the U.S. military, a situation bound to happen finally did.
A 34-year-old Arizona Army National Guardsman NCO by the name of Raul Portillo was recently busted in an undercover sting and accused of helping Mexican drug cartels safely transport large loads of cocaine and marijuana over the border.
Portillo, a man suspected of living in Mexico, yet serving in the Ariz. National Guard, was using his official military credentials and position to make sure cocaine shipments were brought into the United States without trouble.
He often used his military license to freely cross back and forth over the border without being subject to searches at checkpoints – even using military vehicles and military issued weapons to make his runs.
In total, at least 58 Ariz. National Guardsmen under Portillo’s command were acting as “muscle” for various cartels and being paid thousands of dollars in the process.
Portillo was even able to recruit at least one Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent to make their drug runs even easier and stress free.
Former NYPD officer Iris Aquino said of the situation, “In the case of Portillo, as well as other soldiers and sailors involved in criminal enterprises, the Defense Department and law enforcement agencies appear to be complicit in covering up the crime and misconduct cases involving enlisted ‘undocumented immigrants.’”
“If they’re undocumented, how do you know they’re not criminals or terrorists signing up to serve in the U.S. military?” Aquino said. (H/T RadixNews)
There’s no word on how many additional out of the 58 arrested so far are illegal, but one can wager that we haven’t seen the end of it.
Portillo plead guilty to all charges filed against him and was sentenced to federal prison for his crimes.
Why is Obama terminating soldiers from the military who are actual citizens of the United States and replacing them with undocumented, illegal immigrants?
This is probably a situation that even those who are aware of border patrol security flaws haven’t thought of – but it’s happening right now, unfortunately.
As long as Obama keeps brining in illegal immigrants, situations like this one will continue to happen – even within the ranks of our own military.
Share this on Facebook and Twitter if you think it’s time that someone in power steps up to the plate and does something about our current lack of border security.
