Terror has shaken small-town Pennsylvania this weekend. Three illegal aliens who were part of a Mexican cartel, were arrested in Pennsylvania for running a massive marijuana growing operation.
Breitbart reported that Chester County, Pennsylvania is a sanctuary for illegal immigrants, a “jurisdiction which shields criminal illegal immigrants from being deported by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.”
Berto Quinones, 41, Yordanky Hevia-Martinez, 34, and William Delgado, 46, were arrested at Quinones’ residence after local authorities obtained a search warrant based on evidence that the three were growing marijuana in the house.
According to District Attorney Tom Hogan, the smell of marijuana was detectable as authorities approached the scene. Breitbart reports that “more than 100 marijuana plants that were set to produce 200 pounds of marijuana for a Mexican drug cartel,” and that the Cuban nationals had “ties to Mexico and were just one facet of a much larger operation across the U.S. for cartels.”
Aside from the massive amounts of marijuana, a marmoset monkey was also found in the home during the raid. District Attorney Hogan spoke to the press, saying the unlikely pet monkey came as a surprise to local agents. “It’s funny, all of these hardcore drug guys who came in the investigation not to tell us that there were over 100 plants of marijuana in there but to say there’s a really cute monkey in there,” Hogan said.
Mexican cartels found it very easy to flourish under Barack Obama’s administration, when immigration laws meant nothing. Sanctuary cities are trying to protect illegals from deportation, even harboring individuals with criminal records. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recently announced that the current administration plans to take away federal funding from cities that refuse to follow immigration law.
