America's 2nd Line of Defense Conquered By Mexican Drug Cartel, Time to Buy Shovels: Capt. Dave Bertrand, Ret. +Video

BERTRAND DAILY REPORT The War For Your Mind & Soul Continues

By Capt. Dave Bertrand, Ret.

Friends and Associates:

Open border activists complain about 2nd tier border checkpoints, claiming 4th amendment rights violations, an oxymoron claim by Dems that want to destroy the Constitution and Bill of Rights to suit themselves.

The second line of defense has been conquered as numerous checkpoints are shutdown in-order to send those agents to the border to deal with the continued rising invasion, now reaching the boiling point in America, not to mention the affected border towns and ranchers having to protect their property with armed security.

Adding to the problem are the Democrat elected that support the border invasion….using the humanitarian angle as their excuse when knowing damn well of what the end game is for America.

Drug Cartels are using the immigrant family migration as a convenient front for increasing drug activity across the border, a full blown military style assault on America, killing an average 300 Americans a day with Fentanyl drugs shipped to Mexico from China.

Our 2nd line of defense is now an open door for increased activity by the Drug Cartel, and border towns like Alamogordo New Mexico, inundated with drug activity and crime are stepping-up to the plate with pro-active action.

There’s not enough law enforcement capable of patrolling the desert areas where drug smuggling activity exists and the need for hired ranch security is on the rise throughout the entire southwest border regions.

It’s just a matter of time when the shooting begins and drug mules, often escorted by armed men with AK47 assault rifles, begin to die in their tracks.

That will set the Dems into a frenzy, but is exactly what they want. Therefore….buy lots of shovels and do what some ranchers in Arizona have done in the past to hide these quasi-military invaders. Bury them or throw them into abandoned wells.

The southwest border of the United States needs to be fully militarized immediately and until that happens, the crisis is going to expand to deadly levels.

Cartels thrive in New Mexico county after feds shut down checkpoints

ALAMOGORDO, NM — In this sprawling desert city in the shadow of the Sacramento Mountains, local officials are fed up with the border crisis — and have gone rogue.

Otero County last month became the first border community to declare a state of emergency after the federal government shut down two local checkpoints in the area, which had traditionally provided a second line of defense against shipments of drugs and illegal immigrants who managed to sneak through the border at El Paso, about 90 miles to the south.

“It’s a green light for the cartels when border checkpoints are down,” Otero County Sheriff David Black, 56, told The Post.

Black, who has lived in this city of nearly 32,000 people his whole life, said he has 44 “gun toters” overseeing the county’s 6,628 square miles of lonely ranchland and pistachio orchards nestled among national parkland and the Holloman Air Force Base.

Now the lawman said he has to deploy his own overworked forces to stop drugs such as methamphetamines, marijuana and fentanyl from coming through his territory, which is home to some 65,000 people.

Otero County is undefended because US Customs and Border Protection shut down two inspection facilities on US Routes 54 and 70, Black said. The Border Protection agents were sent south to El Paso to help with the massive influx of migrants. More than 800 have been arriving per day at the border near El Paso, according to Border Protection statistics.

Last week, The Post visited a Border Protection checkpoint across from the White Sands National Monument, a national park of undulating sand dunes on Highway 70. Two white and green vans belonging to the federal agency were parked at the shuttered facility.

“I’ve had to redeploy my guys,” said Black. Reading from a report on his desk in the Otero County Sheriff’s Office he told The Post that his deputies seized $60,000 worth of illicit drugs in April. The figure is markedly up from the $3,500 seized in January, when the Border Protection checkpoints were still working, he noted, adding. “We have always relied heavily on those border patrol checkpoints.”

Since last October, Border Protection agents have discovered seven tons of marijuana and nearly half a ton of methamphetamine in the area, according to CBP statistics.

The unmanned checkpoints are also a headache for Kyle Williamson, the Drug Enforcement Agency’s special agent in Charge of the El Paso Division, which includes all of New Mexico and West Texas. His office monitors 770 miles of the US-Mexico border and 11 international ports of entry.

“We’ve lost our second line of enforcement,” said Williamson, 52, a 30-year DEA veteran who did stints in the Middle East and Afghanistan.

For Williamson, the chaotic situation at the southern border with Mexico is helping drug traffickers smuggle their illicit cargo north.

“Are cartels capitalizing on the confusion at the border? Yes, they are!” Williamson told The Post. “They are using it as a cover to move drugs, which are coming through legal ports of entry. If your drugs are coming through legal ports of entry, you need lines of defense.”
