In light of recent reports that indicate that the Muslim Brotherhood — along with other radical Islamic sympathizers — has managed to penetrate high levels of the U.S. government, instances of Mexican cartels infiltrating the government have largely gone unreported.
Veteran journalist extraordinaire Sharyl Attkisson made the shocking assertion that Mexican cartels have infiltrated the U.S. military and U.S. law enforcement agencies–and she is correct. Her assertion is backed up by years of Breitbart Texas reports showing that some U.S. soldiers have worked for cartel efforts to smuggle humans and drugs and that far too many in U.S. federal law enforcement agencies have fallen into working for Mexican cartels.
Attkisson’s assertion was made on Breitbart News Daily to host Stephen K. Bannon. She stated on the June 24, 2016 show:
On the other hand, I think about the military guys, and they may think, is this a victimless crime? It’s really not illegal to come to this country. The two Mexicans they had been transporting last week had each been removed from the US three times before. And maybe they think, why shouldn’t I make some money on the side doing something the government doesn’t really mind. They don’t mind if the illegal immigrants come here.
I think they know about it. And it’s people inside Border Patrol and inside the military who have long been involved in smuggling drugs, as well as smuggling humans. They’re well aware of it. They don’t talk about it much but it’s well known inside. I’ll be doing a story in the Fall about corruption inside the Border Patrol which is just out of control. There’s so many agents. The cartels place people inside Border Patrol now, smugglers place people inside Border Patrol get them hired there. It’s a big issue.
As Breitbart Texas previously reported, FBI Director James Comey discussed a public corruption task force created particularly for border officials. “The color of of corruption is green,” Comey said at the time.
Breitbart Texas began reporting on U.S. soldiers taking part in human smuggling and trafficking in 2014, shortly after federal authorities began to identify and target the trend. At the time, agents with U.S. Homeland Security Investigations started to unravel a large smuggling operation using U.S. military personnel. On September 2014, HSI agents arrested a soldier at the Sarita checkpoint about 70 miles north of the Texas border when he drove a vehicle with two illegal aliens hiding under military clothing spread in the vehicle. At the time of the arrest the soldier was in his military uniform. During questioning by HSI agents, he admitted to having driven through the checkpoint at least two other times.
Perhaps many Americans are uninformed of these reports because the Department of Homeland Security's utilization of advisors such as Syrian immigrant Laila Alawa — who praised 9/11 for its disruption of a “white America” — and former FBI agent Gamal Abdel-Hafiz — who refused to wiretap fellow Muslims is simply more alarming.
