Yes, Virginia, Mexican drug cartels are flying drones over the US southern border.
San Diego Union Tribune: “Cartels have not given up on drones at the U.S.-Mexico border, despite the small aircraft’s inefficiency in smuggling meaningful amounts of drugs.”
“In a recent 13-month period, Border Patrol agents reported 21 drone incursions along the San Diego County boundary with Mexico, according to the agency. The unmanned aircraft were carrying drugs in at least six of the incidents — either methamphetamine or cocaine.”
Yes, but this story looks like a limited hangout. Read what Judicial Watch presents. The context and the operation are much, much larger:
“Mexican drug cartels have conducted more than 9,000 drone flights into U.S. airspace in the last year to surveil American law enforcement and security operations in the southern border region, a senior Homeland Security official told Judicial Watch this week. The drones are observing federal, state, county, and city agencies near the Mexican border, including the U.S. Border Patrol, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas National Guard, county sheriffs and local police. The Border Patrol, which operates under Customs and Border Protection (CBP), has captured about a dozen of the drones, and accessed the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles’ (UAVs) guidance and memory systems to gain intelligence information, according to a high-level official at the agency.”
“Judicial Watch learned about the Mexican cartel drone incursions during a recent visit to the southern border and specifically while interviewing federal officials at the CBP Rio Grande Valley sector in Texas. Judicial Watch is further investigating the matter and has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with CBP, the 60,000-member agency charged with keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the U.S., for all records regarding the use of drones by criminal organizations operating along the U.S.-Mexico border for the purpose of surveilling U.S. law enforcement officials or otherwise facilitating illegal activity. The federal public-record request includes, but is not limited to, all information depicting the known or estimated number of instances of the use of such technology, as well as all reports, intelligence assessments, analyses, or similar records related to their use.”
“Federal officials on the ground tell Judicial Watch that the cartels use the UAV surveillance flights to facilitate human smuggling and drug trafficking. Specifically, they help identify gaps in border coverage and assist the cartels in overwhelming certain areas to create a diversion for moving sensitive or high value loads through alternate border locations…Brandon Judd, the president of the union representing the nation’s 20,000 Border Patrol agents, told Judicial Watch the drones are also used to smuggle small amounts of drugs into the U.S…”
However you want to slice it, this is war. This is an incursion into US airspace. This is part of the Mex cartel battle plan.
If the US responded by sending its own superior drones into the skies, to take down the cartel drones, the people of America would wake up to the extent and depth of what is happening at the southern border…and how open borders and unlimited immigration are integral pieces of the plan to drown the US in killer drugs.
Then we might see some meaningful action against illegal immigration.
Of course, untold numbers of people living at or near the border might experience chunks of destroyed drones falling into their yards or on their heads. There is that.
So the Pentagon would have to be careful about where the Mexican drones are flying when they’re destroyed.
And what about locating the centers from which the Mex drones are being launched and controlled? What about sending teams of Special Ops soldiers to knock out those centers? Because, again, this IS war.
I’m sure the US news media would cover these Special Ops attacks—waking up people to what is actually going on at the border.
Or is the Pentagon too busy installing LBQTVIUVYTFR+ rules and regs and re-education programs to think about defending America from killer drugs?
Surely, DARPA has come up with ways to disable drones’ tracking and recording and photographing systems. Why aren’t those methods being deployed?
As you can see, the Mex cartels aren’t just a bunch of stupid mules with guns humping cocaine and fentanyl. They’re smart. They’re formidable. They’re, well, a lot like the CIA in certain respects, carrying out carefully planned ops to destabilize nations. Only in this case, they’re destabilizing us.
But we’re not supposed to see that. We’re supposed to believe unlimited immigration and open borders are messianic, are utopian, are reflective of our caring and our sympathy and our good will and our essentially kind nature and our religious values.
We’re supposed to think that ANY attack against the people of America is righteous and justified, because it’s basically our fault.
We’re not supposed to wake up to the con.
We’re supposed to stand aside, while millions of people here at home are hooked on the drugs flowing up through the border, and their lives are ruined and many, many of them die.
And we’re supposed to vote for politicians who don’t have the balls to fight this war, who back down, who give in, who say it’s no use, who at best make noises about open borders but do nothing in the long run.
We’re supposed to send weapons to the Ukraine, but nothing to our own border.
While we’re already at war. HERE.
