Mexican drug cartels partner with China to launder money

(NEWSNATION) — Mexican drug cartels are now partnering with China to launder money — a major shift for the cartels that saves them hundreds of millions of dollars.

“These new networks coming out of the People’s Republic of China started charging 1%, at the lowest rate,” said Walter Rivera, retired Homeland Security special agent.

Chinese crime organizations are keeping just 1% from all the illegal drug money they launder for Mexican cartels, Rivera said, finding clever ways to funnel the money back to Mexico, rather than risking hauling massive amounts of cash over the border.

The partnership is saving the cartels millions of dollars, and the money is being put to use.

“They’re flush with cash, they’re taking all that additional money and investing it in technology for their organizations,” said Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa. “In some cases, they are outmanning, outgunning our (Customs and Border Protection) agents.”

Hinson, who serves on the House Select Committee on China, says it would be naïve to think the Chinese government isn’t at least aware. if not complicit, in what’s happening.

In a hearing, experts in money laundering through cartels and China explained how the systems take advantage of encrypted communication channels and underground banking systems in mainland China.

Because money passes through brokers in different countries, money deposited in U.S. banks is disconnected from the initial drug trafficking, making it more difficult for law enforcement and financial regulators to track.

Another complication is the Chinese government’s unwillingness to seriously crack down on money-laundering activity in mainland China and the reluctance to share information or cooperate on investigations into those illegal activities.

The panel repeatedly noted that most of the information they have on the money-laundering process comes from investigations done outside China, and there is limited insight into the Chinese government’s efforts to combat the problem.

Stephen Miller: ‘Seal the border, deport all the illegals’

(THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER) — The architect of many of former President Donald Trump’s most effective and controversial policies on Friday laid out what is likely to be Trump’s first-day immigration plan if he beats President Joe Biden in November.

“The simple part is seal the border, deport all the illegals,” Stephen Miller told an audience at the 2024 Conservative Political Action Conference.

“You get in; you have two policy objectives that you proceed with utter determination on: seal the border, no illegals in, everyone here goes out. That’s very straightforward,” Miller said.

More so than Homeland Security officials, Miller was the brainchild of Trump’s immigration policies that saw a sizable cut in illegal immigrants succeeding in crossing the border. He was involved in every angle, from building a border wall to working with Mexico to keep migrants on the southern side of the border until their paperwork needed to enter the United States was ready.

When Biden came to office, the new president ended virtually every Trump immigration policy. The result has been historic and record-breaking illegal immigration. Some expect 10 million illegal immigrants to have crossed the border by the end of Biden’s first term.

(THE GATEWAY PUNDIT)–This is Joe Biden’s America.

New data from the CBP reveals that over 434,000 illegal aliens have been flown into the US under crooked Joe Biden’s CHNV parole program.

CHNV is an abbreviation for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans. This parole program allows up to 30,000 “non-citizens” per month from those countries to be considered entry into the US by being flown directly into the country.

The accumulated total under this program is 184,600 from Haiti, 101,200 from Venezuela, 91,100 from Cuba, and 75,700 from Nicaragua. Read more »
