FBI Director Confirms Cartel Activity is Spreading in U.S. Because of Border Crisis

During a hearing with the House Judiciary Committee FBI Director Christopher Wray said that cartel activity is “spilling over” into the United States due to the heightened number of border crossings. California Rep. Tom McClintock asked Wray if the FBI had information on specific instances of increased cartel activity in the United States and around the border and if some crossed were indebted to cartels and smugglers.

Fox News reports:

“Certainly, we have seen quite a number of such instances, absolutely,” Wray said.

McClintock followed up and asked if those debts are collected through indentured servitude to the cartels.

“In some cases, definitely,” the FBI director responded. ‘We are pursuing a number of human trafficking task forces, as well as working on certain taskforces with DHS [Department of Homeland Security] to try to address that issue.”

“But there’s no question that the cartel activity on the other side of the border is spilling over in all sorts of ways and you just put your finger on one that is extremely concerning,” he added.

Border officials have been overwhelmed since President Biden took office as record-breaking amounts of immigrants swarm the border. The administration has done little to address the crisis and even CBP officials have said the administration policies have rendered the agency basically useless.

The Biden administration has claimed the border crisis resulted from Trump, climate change, and poor economic conditions in Northern Triangle countries. However, even Guatemala’s president even said the border crisis is a result of Biden’s mixed messaging which has emboldened cartels and coyotes.

Right, blame Trump for everything. The dems motto: “The dog ate my homework”.
If this wasn’t so tragic it would be funny.

Hunter and politicians were selling our oil and gas rights ON OUR LAND, IN OUR STATES, to China during the Trump administration. Now we’ll have to pay China for our own gas and oil.

Sorry but, Pelosi rules the House with a Dem majority. She will not allow the Dems to write Articles of Impeachment against Biden and if the Republicans write them she will not allow them to come up for a vote! The only way to ever impeach Biden is for Republicans to win back the majority in Congress in 2022 and at that time we can do it!

Look at the make-up of the GOP – maybe just 1/3 of them are RINOs, but they hold powerful positions and intimidate the other 2/3.

I love the idea of impeaching Biden, but remember Harris then becomes President and nothing could be more dissasterous. And if she becomes President I would not be surprised if she picks Hillary as her VP – and then when they impeach Harris, Hillary becomes President. If that isn’t scary I don’t know what is.

I am a Christian but I strongly believe that any religious organization that offers sanctuary to illegals should be denied their tax free status. They are committing a criminal act against the government. Noting that during the pandemic the government had the power to make citizens stay home, why doesn’t it have the power to make illegals stay out?

Although I “fall short” sometimes, I, too, am a Christian. I no longer attend church! My ex-pastor inserts Demomncrap talking points into his sermons. I questioned him a couple of times and he either denied saying it or flat out lied. How can I believe and trust what he says in his sermons when he admits being a demo and totally committed to the demo agenda?

Hi Annie we should tell Mexico to put an end to the drug cartel or we will take them out ourselves so we won’t have anymore deaths due to the Opiodes poisoned with phentinol. Go where they live them or take them out for good. Mexico can’t handle the Cartels so let us go in and destroy everything they own. money talks and bullshit walks as they say. the Politicians aren’t going to do anything so it will be up to the patriots of our Country to protect us all.

Who is more disloyal or a disgrace to their Country, The Leader of Russia Vladimir Putin for giving 3 million plus to the Biden’s (Hunter} ,Chairman of Communist China Xi Jinping for giving a Billion dollar contract, 200 million commission to the Biden’s {Hunter] or “the persons who stuck out their hands to received that money” [Hunter}? This is the question all Americans should be asking now, under the current political decision process, Who is giving public quotes, using the Communist leaders? Who is trying to cancel July 4th holidays? Who did a piss poor job talking about our hero’s on Memorial Day? Who is trying to kill our “pipe lines” and why? Who is driving our Country towards bankruptcy? Who won’t protect Southern Borders and obey the laws of the land?

“IF YOU LOVE WEALTH GREATER THAN LIBERTY, THE TRANQUILITY OF SERVITUDE, GREATER THAN THE CONTEST OF FREEDOM, THEN GO HOME FROM US IN PEACE. WE SEEK NOT YOUR COUNSEL, NOR YOUR ARMS. CROUCH DOWN AND LICK THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU. MAY YOUR CHAUNS SET LIGHTLY UPON YOU, AND MAY POSTERITY FORGET THAT YOU WERE EVER OUR COUNTRYMEN !

Installing mortal fear in the hearts of cartel soldiers should be easy. For example, a few hundred of our armed citizens might openly discuss where they stash huge amounts of cash. Hide nearby and when they come for it, let ’em have it. Feed the story into all the major outlets where cartels operate. Temptation cannot be fully eradicated but a string of these kinds of tricks should tamp it down a bit.

“IF” you “think” that the shootings, drug deaths & crime are gonna go down, you’re living in dingbat Biden’s fantasy world.These “shootings” are the Dems way of enforcing their assinine gun control platform. Support Antifa, BLM & every other radical communist movement & defund the police & Ice & “border” baby sitters & what’s left are LAWFUL gun owners who have saved many lives. Soon this whole “thing” will blow up in the Dems faces.It’s only a matter of time before ISIS, & “others” who hate the USA will strike.Then Biden & Pelosi & Schumer can head to their bunkers while “we” are left to deal with it. Maybe “then” the “squad” will be held LEGALLY responsible for TREASON!

Typical ignorant democrap, biddyboy Biden blames President Trump for the Border Crisis when biddy himself “OPENED THE GATES OF HELL” to let every Tomas, Ricardo and Haraldo into our Nation! THAT IS YOUR STUPID DEMOCRAT FOR YOU AND THEY WILL NEVER ADMIT THEY LIED, CHEATED, MANIPULATED, ETC TO GET WHAT THEY WANT!

But they will PANIC and that is exactly what they are doing as the Election Fraud Investigations start cropping up across our nation!

Hey DDs (Demented Democraps), you losers cannot control all the investigations across the U.S. and some of YOU ARE GOING DOWN FOR YOUR IDIOCY AND ARROGANCE FOR PUNCHING AMERICANS IN THE FACE BY STEALING OUR ELECTION!

Americans are like a PACK OF HUNGRY 🐺🐺 🐺 WOLVES, DROOLING IN ANTICIPATION OF A MEAL OF “FAT CAT DEMOCRAPS” HIDING IN THE SHADOWS SO NO ONE CAN SEE THEM — but we can see you all!! You’re time is coming! We will find you…

Its surprising that Wray has any time to talk about the cartels and their border operations. He is too busy rounding up an arresting the ultimate threat to our Republic. Unarmed irate protestors that stormed the nation’s Capitol after the police took down the barriers and waved them in. Fraudulent elections have consequences. When one considers how truly dire those consequences are for our nation,the so called armed insurrection was a comparatively mild response. They shouldn’t of done it, but it is remarkable how much outrage was reserved for this protest, while all summer long Democrats praised the mostly peaceful protestors burning down businesses and cities all over our country. They were Arrested and released.

Now do we have a hyper politicized two tiered justice system??? No wonder they want to close down law enforcement all over our nation. Arresting mostly peaceful protestors of the Marxist Left cramps their style.
