How would you react if you had proof that the United States were guilty of taking money to help out members of the drug cartel? Considering that these are departments that are meant to help out the citizens of the United States, it would (hopefully) not sit well with you.
This isn’t a hypothetical situation, either. This was something that just happened, as the Obama Department of Homeland Security was just caught taking $15 million in bribes over the past decade. Essentially, the last two years of Bush’s administration gave way to Obama’s eight years and nothing changed.
The New York Times reported that 200 employees and contract workers were caught taking bribes. These bribes helped secure protection from everything from drug smuggling to sex trafficking. In addition to needing a new border, we need new employees that are not going to help out the smugglers.
“These employees have looked the other way as tons of drugs and thousands of undocumented immigrants were smuggled into the United States, the records show. They have illegally sold green cards and other immigration documents, have entered law enforcement databases and given sensitive information to drug cartels. In one case, the information was used to arrange the attempted murder of an informant,” The Times reported.
What makes this worse is the fact that the numbers are most likely undervalued. These findings don’t include gifts, trips, or even stolen money from Homeland Security employees. Several agents have been busted as working with cartel members. Both have been caught and had prison sentences handed down towards them as a result, but there are hundreds more still operating this way.
One agent, Ivhan Herrera-Chiang, was sentenced to 15 years of prison for working with these cartels.
“Mr. Herrera-Chiang, who was assigned to a special undercover unit targeting the cartels in Yuma, Arizona, provided maps of hidden underground sensors, lock combinations to gates along the United States-Mexico border and the locations of Border Patrol traffic checkpoints to an individual who provided them to the cartels. The cartels used the information to bypass Border Patrol agents and transport methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana into the country, according to court records.”
Consider who was in charge of the country when the majority of this happened. Obama has been leading the Department of Homeland Security for the past eight years. The fact that this has been going on underneath him is just grounds for charges to be filed!
Everyone can agree that drug cartels are terrorists. They use terror to get what they want and intimidate those that stand in their way. While they are not blowing people up like Muslim terrorists, they are still putting American people at risk with their actions.
Therefore, the best charge that SHOULD be applied to President Obama would be Tulsi Gabbards’s “Stop Funding Terrorism Act.” As the act suggests, it’s meant to be a way to stop terrorists from getting the funding that would allow them to carry out these actions. In addition to stopping the funding, it would charge the person that was responsible for funding them.
This NEEDS to happen to Obama. He has spent the past eight years letting this occur! That means that there has been eight years of drug smugglers getting through the border and endangering the citizens of this country. For someone that has sworn to protect the nation from all threats, he has a funny way of showing it.
It also calls into question his reluctance to build better border security. What is stopping Obama from profiting from this himself? After all, he was the person that took away several border security options, like a drone program that was designed to catch drug smugglers.
He is HELPING them out and needs to pay for his crimes! Seriously how can someone been in charge of this department for eight years not know about this corruption that has occurred, unless they were apart of it? Of course no charges have actually been filed, and since this is Obama we are talking about, they are most likely never going to get filed.
Then again, Obama has always been a president that has supported terrorists over his own citizens. He released one terrorist from Guantanamo Bay because his review board said that he changed and didn’t present a threat anymore. Except seven months before that, the military said he shouldn’t be released period. So thanks for endangering us Obama!
This is also the same president that was more than willing to lift all the restrictions and send ISIS advanced weapons in Syria. Literally everything he does is against the American people. January 20 cannot come fast enough, because once and for all we will be rid of Obama destroying this country.
Share this article to show everyone that members of Obama’s Department of Homeland Security were accepting bribes and helping out the drug cartels. They were literally endangering the people of this country and Obama did nothing to stop it.
Don’t you think it’s about time that Obama did the time for his crimes?
