U.S. Officers Taking Bride Money From Mexican Cartels

Mar 26, 2009 | Posted by: Inisa Love | Full story: www.desertinvasion.us

MCALLEN - The Border Patrol checkpoint on a remote stretch of South Texas ranchland was the ideal route for a drug trafficking ring to move tons of marijuana.

To make sure their product got through, traffickers paid $1.5 million to U.S. Border Patrol agent Juan Alfredo Alvarez, 35, to wave trucks loaded with a ton or more of marijuana through checkpoints outside Hebbronville, according to a plea bargain Alvarez agreed to earlier this month.

As Mexican drug cartels have transformed the Texas-Mexico border into one of the major transport corridors for marijuana, cocaine and heroin, traffickers have stepped up their efforts to bribe agents.

So what keeps drug cartel from letting middle east people from paying them to rent out home until a army has arrived in mexico. and then overrun the boarders into the united states. Money is Money and the terrorist will pay more then drugs or guns could ever be worth. Just a thought

The avacate drug dealers been paying off the politicians,law enforcement,judges,and the most that makes all the money is the one at the Border cheack points.

It ain't just all the border towns across Texas that's corrupt,Arizona,California,New Mexico's border towns,also take money from drug cartels to help them bring drugs across the border.

Were the ones that's stimulating the economy,and Mexico Goverment is gonna be overthrown soon by the drug cartels,Mexico will be on it's knee's,and it will work it's way up north through Texas.

That's why were paying off state lobbyiest to pass bill's that will make it tough on Law Enforcement to touch us,one the cartels take over the Mexican Goverment,we will move on the United States,we will get the Texas Goverment on it's knee's.

There's to much money in the drug dealing buisness.

Were winning the war,FBI,DEA,and all the state,local law enforcement can't stop us.

The local goverment in Laredo,all Rio Grande Valley is secretly controlled by the Drug Cartel.
