Homeland Security Reveals in Footage How Cartels Controlling Border

The recent trip to El Paso, Texas, according to Rep. Anthony D’Esposito, R-N.Y., showed how cartels are controlling the border by playing a tactical game against the overworked Border Patrol.

The congressman, who serves on the House Homeland Security Committee, posted the footage he shot while flying above a section of the border wall in a chopper.  The video showed a few of migrants eluding the wall and slipping unmolested into an area of desert.

He also took a picture from the ground that revealed a hole that had been cut out of the base of a portion of the wall. D’Esposito uncovered how the cartel is leveraging certain sites of entry by speaking with local law enforcement and Border Patrol agents on the ground. He discovered that the cartel sends huge groups of 10 to 40 people across various areas miles away from one another.

Then, he claims, the cartels choose a midway ground to send the individuals or drugs they wish to successfully slip into the nation undetected as Border Patrol rush to those locations.
Border Patrol is having trouble keeping workers, according to D’Esposito, in addition to dealing with infrastructure issues. D’Esposito claimed that the committee members were informed about the discovery of illegal drugs concealed beneath a vehicle’s floor while they were receiving their briefing at the El Paso Port of Entry.

Members of the House Homeland Security Committee also went to Monument Three, which marks the intersection of the borders of Mexico, New Mexico, and Texas. D’Esposito claimed that they had heard accounts of how illegal border crossings frequently caused their communities’ schools and workdays to be disrupted.

Texas Land Commissioner Expresses Fright Over Cartels’ Influence

The congressman further claims that the cartel’s influence goes far beyond migrant crossing points. James Comer, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee and a Republican from Kentucky, disclosed on Monday that he had written to Troy Miller, acting commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection, requesting transcribed interviews with seven US Border Patrol chief patrol agents who are currently in charge of overseeing crucial areas of the US border.

Comer claimed that on February 7 two top patrol agents appeared before the committee after Homeland Security attempted to prevent four other senior officers from testifying.

Several Texas communities now regrettably routinely witness Mexican cartels trafficking drugs and people. Texas Land Commissioner Dawn Buckingham says the situation at their southern border is profoundly upsetting to Texans and that it is “frightening.”
