Thanks to an executive order signed by President Trump, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced Wednesday that more than 600 arrests have been made as a result of an interagency operation cracking down on Mexican cartel activity.
“Project Python,” a DEA-led initiative, targeted members of Cártel de Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG). According to the DEA, over the last six months federal law enforcement officials have been monitoring the activities of the accused, The Hill reported.
The operation resulted in more than 600 arrests nationwide, 350 indictments and “significant seizures of money and drugs,” according to the agencies.
It’s the President winning again, but the media is too busy to say much about it since they are trying to destroy him over a mistake of nature.
An executive order President Trump passed shortly after he was inaugurated in 2017 that condemned cartel operations in the U.S. It directed federal law enforcement to use the Threat Mitigation Working Group, which was put in place by the Obama administration in 2011.
“When President Trump signed an Executive Order prioritizing the dismantlement of transnational criminal organizations, the Department of Justice answered the call and took direct aim at CJNG. We deemed CJNG one of the highest-priority transnational organized crime threats we face,” he said. “And with Project Python, we are delivering results in the face of that threat for the American people.”
According to the DOJ, CJNG is active in major U.S. cities such as Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Houston, and Atlanta.
Notice how Democrats never take notice of the gangs, most of them illegal aliens?
