DOJ Refuses To ID Drug-Ring Operators As Illegal Immigrants

The
Obama Justice Department and the mainstream media have conveniently
failed to identify as illegal immigrants more than two dozen people
arrested in a major drug-trafficking ring near the capital, but a
conservative newspaper stepped up to the plate and revealed this
important fact.

The sophisticated
operation for years smuggled cocaine from Honduras to northern Virginia,
which is considered part of the Washington Metropolitan area that
surrounds the capital. Couriers smuggled large amounts of drugs by
hiding them in shoes and decorative wooden frames, according to federal
prosecutors. The feds also believe that members of the trafficking ring
wired more than $1 million from the United States back to cocaine
suppliers in Honduras.

In all, 28 people from a “tight network of Honduran immigrants” have
been arrested, according to Neil MacBride, the U.S. Attorney that heads
the DOJ’s Eastern District of Virginia office handling the case. His announcement,
posted on the Department of Justice (DOJ) website, goes into tremendous
detail about the operation and mentions how the suspects distributed
vast amounts of cocaine throughout Northern Virginia and the
mid-Atlantic.

However, there is no
mention that the criminal enterprise was run by illegal immigrants, not
simply “Honduran immigrants,” which implies they lived in the U.S.
legally. Local and national media followed the DOJ’s cover-up lead. One
local news report
simply reprinted the DOJ press release, which identifies the suspects
by name. Maryland’s largest newspaper dedicated a two-paragraph brief to
the story because three state “residents” were arrested but, again, no mention of any illegal immigrants being involved.

The area’s conservative newspaper, the Washington Examiner,
was the only to contact federal immigration authorities to inquire
about the status of the arrestees in this case. This is a relevant fact,
considering the Obama Administration is granting backdoor amnesty to
thousands of illegal aliens. The short piece quotes an Immigration and
Customs Enforcement (ICE) official confirming the agency had lodged
detainers against all 28 defendants. The information came via electronic
mail after an Examiner reporter took the time to do her job.

    The IRS is dumb ass stupid too, look at this. They are allowing illegals to send up to $29,000 in tax refunds for children living in Mexico, totaling over 4 billion dollars a year!

    It's a big ripoff of taxpayer money. They shouldn't be getting this credit. I read that some in the House of Representatives proposed a bill to stop this but of course it will get blocked in the democratically controlled Senate. It's been going on for too long.
