...okay,...now that we know the cartel(s) have a foothold on businesses within this Beautiful city of El Paso...what is the City/Governement/DEA gonna do to isolate those cartel run (small business, homes and tierras) assets within this domain. Literally, It is known that these MOCO HEADS are "Embedded or continuously Embedding" themselves in our city, our neighborhoods and right next door to us, SUBVERSIVELY!...WHERE is the pre/pro-active activity happening here! Millions of dollars and many personnel have been sent to our borders to strengthen a line of difference but due to this example it shows there is a weakness. ENFORCE THE LINE OF defiance or let the situation perpetuate at U.S.A. CITIZEN's expense!!!! I am talking about their being able to cross, buy/rent situate and perpetuate among establishing new neighborhoods too...we have more migra and resources on our border down here that it is evident more of illigetimate squatters are here for (asylum!) reasons than upholding the Uninted States of America values that I deserve as a citizen!!!!

I think you should change it to , stupid in El Paso. What does being the safest city in the U.S. have to due with drug smuggling?????????? Heres what counts toward that ranking , murders,rapings,theft,crimes against people. Drug trafficing doesn't count towards being part of the number for safest city's , and really doesnt catching a guy for drug smuggling consest of a good thing? Bad thing would be this guy is still free. Next time think about what stupid thing you put before you put it.

There are dozens, if not a hundred, car lots in El Paso that only sell about one car a quarter. What's up with that? Seems like it took a decade to lower the boom on just one of them.
Is it just me

They need to round up their associates and family members and ship them all back to Mexico and never let those roaches come back.

Glad they are off OUR streets...We wont tolerate drug cartels in OUR city!

And notice that the owners seem to have loads of money. All these filthy rich juarenos moving here have the really big money. None of it from honest hard work.

now that you mention Faith Christian Acacedemy. I am very familiar with that church and school... that church and school will embrace anyone in their community as long as they contribute 10% of their earnings to the church... why ? they dont care where you come from or what you do as long as they can brainwash your to give them your 10% to contribute to the luxurious life of a pastor and his family... i am a devoted christian and against people or pastors that capitalize on their personal wealth by using the word of GOD...

that 10% that you are talking about is in the Bible, so how is that wrong?... and please don't critize other Christians if you are, according to you a devoted Christian, unless you're perfect...

Better check for hidden compartments. It could be illegal
substances or money. Better go get the dogs of the BP to run
through it before crossing the border.

This is a family business and now you understand part of the
financing of the education or the large donations to the
school.
