The ARIZONA MAFIA ------Bush/Napolitano/Mendendez----are all global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS KNIGHTS OF MALTA----and they are those global banking 5% freemason/Greek players tied to being politicians-----developers ---and corrupt law enforcement.
The novel SULFUR SPRINGS does a good job describing the difficulties of being REAL POLICE OFFICERS in BORDER PATROL simply trying to do their jobs vs those criminal law enforcement global banking 1% players. So, any article or media outlet NOT making clear that today's US city development corporations are CRIMINAL, CORRUPT, AND KILLING OUR LOCAL ECONOMIES AND COMMUNITIES-----then they are not trying to educate our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE and our new to US immigrant citizens black, white, and brown citizens.
When that ARIZONA MAFIA NAPOLITANO is made leader of HOMELAND SECURITY ----we have that crooked law enforcement player making sure REAL justice never occurs.

What this article below shows is how those global banking 1% freemason STARS are always right in the center of these criminal business operations in this case our LATINO STARS
This is what has our US BORDER PATROL law enforcement riddled with corrupt police officers making it impossible to solve these justice issues with any kind of EQUAL RIGHTS AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
We notice that all these global banking 1% players tied to gun and drug running are 5% white and brown players while our US cities being targeted with OPIUM WAR have our poor black citizens blamed as being BAD GUYS WITH GUNS

NXIVM and the Arizona Mafia – Part 1
July 28, 2018
ADN News – Deep Dive Jeffrey Peterson. Who is the Arizona Mafia ? It’s bigger than you imagine.
Just Days ago, “famed internet businessman Jeffrey Peterson” contacted Frank Parlato Jr. and publicly came forward with claims against NXIVM that go beyond the localized activity in Albany, NY.
Famed American Internet businessman Jeffrey Peterson, in hiding, says ‘Arizona Mafia,’ Carlos Salinas and NXIVM Mexico — out to kill him This story is reminiscent of when Catherine Oxenberg called to tell me her daughter had been branded. I published it and it became worldwide news and led to the arrest of Keith Raniere. 
Jeffrey Peterson has also joined Twitter and has been sharing evidence.  “Jeffrey Peterson (born October 11, 1972 in Santa Barbara, California) is an American technology entrepreneur and California-born millionaire who is considered the pioneer of Hispanic internet in the United States.”  He says NXIVM and Carlos Salinas are trying to kill him.
“Peterson says he is being targeted on both sides of the US-Mexican border – after refusing to join the Mexican branch of NXIVM and is living in exile outside the USA and Mexico. He calls a group of individuals in high places in the Arizona legal and government [deep state] community – including Clare Bronfman’s lawyer, Dennis Burke – the “Arizona Mafia” and says they are part of the organized conspiracy to destroy him.”
“He implies he was once a part of this group. His story may help unravel what was really going on in Mexico – with Keith Raniere, Emiliano Salinas, Alex Betancourt [and their Prorsus Capital] and of course, Emiliano’s father, Carlos Salinas.”
We are going to see an unfolding of many thing s…
Fast and Furious
MS-MK-13-Ultra Curated Cult Gangs
All of it
And it goes to the tippy, tippy top
Before we expand – let’s drill down.
Arizona Mafia – “that group of “Deep State” members of Arizona’s federal law enforcement who enrich themselves – some believe with gun running and drugs – the two principle export and import products along the Arizona border.”
“Peterson is considered the pioneer of Hispanic internet in the United States. He founded QuePasa, later changed its name in 2012, to MeetMe. Which acquired the Skout, if (we), Tagged, and his social networks. As of 2018, the Meet Group, had a market value about U.S. $300 million.
Peterson’s next venture is where he gets involved with NXIVM. “In April 2013, Peterson and partner, Michael Silberman, launched Mobile Corporation. The company was a start-up venture focused on developing a freelancing platform for Mobile technology.”
“Board members included Univision Online CEO Javier Saralegui; son of Atari Founder Nolan Bushnell – Brent Bushnell; Senior Advisor to Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim – Marco A. López Jr. …
“…and notably – for purposes of NXIVM and the case against it – former U.S. Attorney and now current attorney for Clare Bronfman — Dennis Burke.”
“Notable investors in Mobile Corporation included the venture fund of Silicon Valley’s Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati law firm, Salt Lake City businessman Phil Marriott, Texas land Commissioner George P. Bush (Jebs son), …”
“…and notably, for purposes of NXIVM. and the case against it – Prorsus Capital – a company named and guided by Keith Raniere – and operated by Emiliano Salinas, and his lover, Alejandro Betancourt, and other NXIVM underlings.
According to Frank Parlato Jr: ” I believe – and have evidence to support it – that Prorsus Capital is a front for a money laundering company for the Salinas family to launder drug and gun running profits – much of it through Luxembourg.”
“Peterson’s Mobile Corp. established headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Shortly after, the company began developing branch offices at Plaza Carso in Mexico City, Nogales, Sonora Mexico, and in the Philippines” (Now we really pick up steam). “On October 10, 2014, Mobile Corporation named former U.S. Presidential Candidate and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean as its Global Advocate. Dean was the previous Governor of Vermont, and also joined the Advisory Board.”
“It was around that time that trouble struck for Peterson. One of his financiers – Emiliano Salinas – asked, or rather demanded, that Peterson become a member of NXIVM – according to Peterson.”
Simultaneously, “a number of problems began to erupt between Peterson and board members. Among the people Peterson was working with were David Lopez, father of Latina singer and actress Jennifer Lopez.
I’m not sure who this guy is. But Peterson was hanging with him too. Could be important. (Sarcasm alert)Peterson was a major democratic donor. “His big donations – and his business activities – directly or indirectly – helped him get important appointments. In 2003, Peterson was appointed to the Arizona-Mexico Commission by former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano.”
“In 2005, he was appointed to the Executive Committee. In 2005, Peterson was appointed to the cross-border transactions committee of the Arizona Department of Real Estate, which focused on international real estate transactions between residents of Arizona and Mexico.”
“Peterson was also active in Democrat agendas and financially supported the March 25, 2006, and April 10, 2006 marches organized by immigrants and was co-host at June 1, 2006 fundraiser for Arizona Senatorial candidate Jim Pederson, featuring former president, Bill Clinton.”
“Peterson held a fundraiser at his home for Barack Obama featuring Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean and actress Scarlett Johansson in 2008.”
“Peterson was named as co-host at a October 2016 fundraising event for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton featuring Chelsea Clinton at a private residence in Phoenix. In other words, he was – for a time – a darling, a stalwart of the Democratic Party.”
“His connections run deep. In 2013, Peterson was appointed to the Board of Directors of the U.S. Philippines Society, a Washington, D.C.-based private sector initiative chaired by U.S. Ambassador John Negroponte and former AIG Chairman Maurice “Hank” Greenberg.”
“According to Maricopa County’s property records, Peterson owned a residence in the same condominium complex as Arizona Senator John (#WeDontSayHisName) McCain.”
So this man. Has come forward.
Jeffrey Peterson says:
– His life has been threatened and feels he is in grave danger.
– In addition to threats on his life, his business partners and attorneys have been intimidated over the past several years.
– He has been in communication with “more than one branch of government” regarding the matters described.
– He currently fears for his life, and is living outside of the United States and Mexico.
– The State Department, Homeland Security and the FBI know where he is.”
Peterson: “They have more or less ruined my life at this point, which is clearly what they intended to do, but apparently the entire group, and the personalities in the background, are not willing to stop with simply ruining your life, especially if you hold information about them.”
“I tried to quietly settle things with these people for a long time. They won’t stop attacking me. What am I supposed to do? I can’t be quiet & live in fear any longer. They can continue the scorched-earth fear tactics in court and with their other veiled and direct threats..
“… It’s been a part of my life for a long time now.” Jeffery also went on Vimeo to confirm his identity.
SULFUR SPRINGS creates characters as BAD GUYS from each population group------and it is all tied to FREEMASONRY---all working for global banking 1%.
WHITE HORSE in Sulfur Springs was a white drug gang trying to be that DRUG CARTEL. Now, is WHITE HORSE racist by fighting LATINO DRUG CARTELS and Latino immigrants they think are working for them or are they trying to create an economy in a region with a deliberately STAGNANT economy? This drug gang with its character as a disaffected VETERAN ----competing with those LATINO drug cartels have SULFUR SPRINGS 99% of citizens captured in fear----unable to have a quality of life----having to LIE, CHEAT, AND STEAL in order to navigate around these gun and drug cartels protected by MAYOR MARION------by BORDER CONTROL CORRUPT POLICE-----and global banking DEVELOPERS.
We see with WHITE HORSE in SULFUR SPRINGS how some of our VETERANS come home having become addicts---having tied themselves to overseas drug cartels and they simply continue that life just as here in BALTIMORE MD. No one knows how to use our struggling with addiction VETERANS then global banking 5% freemason/Greek players as MAYOR MARION.
WHITE HORSE has both OLD WORLD FREEMASONRY symbolism and drug slang for a type of drug being marketed. It has less to do with WHITE as a race.

Trump Jr. Now Tied to Mexican Drug Cartel’s Money Laundering Bankers
Left to Right: Donald Trump Jr. speaking in 2012 with Baltic International Bank founder Valeri Belokon.
El Chapo headed the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico, who sent hundreds of millions of dollars through Baltic International Bank
Baltic International Bank confirmed that Donald Trump Jr. collaborated with them one time in 2012.
But they denied any transactions showing their bank laundering money in a written statement last month.
Their denial is a lie.
It’s the only item published by Baltic International Bank’s account on Medium, which you can see below.
Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project reporters examined the Baltic International Bank account records and transactions related to money laundering for the Sinaloa Mexican drug cartel led by El Chapo.
The OCCRP also found detailed transactions showing that Baltic International Bank collaborated with Prevezon Holdings, the Cyprus company linked to the infamous Magnitsky case.
The bank confirms that Donald John Trump Jr. spoke at Baltic International Bank’s “Inheriting a Family Business and Raising the New Generation” conference in 2012.
Only one year earlier, Wachovia Bank was caught in a racket working to money launder $378 billion dollars for the Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel, run by the infamous El Chapo.
A whistleblower broke the case from London.
Wells Fargo paid out $160 million dollars in what was then the largest fine in US banking history, after buying Wachovia when it failed.
Baltic International Bank was directly implicated to the money laundering crime by US and Australian authorities.
They held a dummy account for the New Zealand company Tormex, Ltd. which was founded by a company mill, directed by a cutout in the Seychelles Islands.
Tormex opened a Baltic International Bank account in Latvia using the credentials of a Moscow driver named Albert Maslakov, who sold his passport information and signed a power of attorney for just a few hundred dollars.
Hundreds of millions of dollars flowed through the account.
Shortly thereafter, HSBC was also charged in a massive money laundering case and paid a whopping $1.9 billion dollar fine.
The Mexican cartels have waged a particularly violent war against their commercial enemies, and some of the families of their victims are suing these money laundering banks in court.
However, that didn’t stop Donald Trump Jr. from visiting Baltic International Bank in 2012.
After the election, Baltic International Bank’s major shareholder Valeri Belokon was implicated in a money laundering scheme in Kyrgyzstan and has been in a series of high profile court cases in the UK.
The same year Trump Jr. visited his Latvian banker friends working for the Sinaloa Cartel, news reports indicate that the cartel has recruited the MS-13 gang as muscle, like this murder in Minnesota. Ironically, President Trump named the MS-13 gang as public enemy number one, today.
Donald Trump Sr. had a very public fight with El Chapo in July 2015, just after launching his run for President of the United States.
It happened just after El Chapo escaped from prison.
In October 2016, reports indicated that El Chapo had placed a bounty on Trump’s head, for all of his anti-Mexican statements.
However, El Chapo was caught again, and has been extradited from Mexico to the United States to face federal drug charges, after having broken out of prison the last time he was arrested.
After the election, El Chapo called Trump:
“The candidate of the most palpable hate, confrontation, racism, persecution and misogyny has won. How sad for us all.”It’s unknown if El Chapo realizes that his Latvian banker hired Donald Trump Jr. as a speaker.
Below we see what MOVING FORWARD these few decades from Arizona mafia meets Texas mafia meets New Mexico mafia----you know, CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA ---now TRUMP.
We now see NEDCO------which started as this US BORDER DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION tied to state development corporations across America----we see below it is tied to Caribbean and Africa. Our Baltimore Development Corporation is simply that same global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS development corporation.
What we liked in novel SULFUR SPRINGS is the heroes who STOOD UP to fight these global banking 5% freemason/Greek players and WON. When our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown citizens and our new to US immigrants allow ourselves to be those FEARFUL/INTIMIDATED local citizens in SULFUR SPRINGS we have no freedom, liberty, justice, pursuit of happiness. We have NO LOCAL ECONOMY not tied to BLACK MARKET as here in Baltimore MD
We understand our US 99% are often forced to work for these global banking 1% development corporations because they need jobs. Those in leadership are always global banking 5% freemason/Greek players just like MAYOR MARION and JAYNE the banking players.
WE CANNOT REBUILD BALTIMORE MD FOR OUR BALTIMORE 99% OF CITIZENS WHEN WE ALLOW ALL OUR ECONOMIC AND DEVELOPMENT BE TIED TO ARIZONA MAFIA TEXAS MAFIA NEW MEXICO MAFIA---YOU KNOW, KNIGHTS OF MALTA TRIBE OF JUDAH.

The Border Patrol's Corruption Problem
More than 140 Customs and Border Protection agents were arrested or convicted of corruption in recent years—and President Trump’s promise to hire 5,500 new agents could make the problem worse.
May 5, 2017
SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Tex.—In the calm waters of the Texas Gulf Coast, Robert Hannan steered his boat toward what he thought was a crab trap. He found a corpse.
“There’s nothing that can help this person if it's a real body,” Hannan said in disbelief to the 911 dispatcher. “It's floating just like it would a body, but there’s no head.”
That grisly find would lead investigators first to an assassin from the powerful Gulf Cartel, and then to a U.S. Border Patrol agent who helped the killer move drugs and guns across the border.
Joel Luna is one of more than 140 Customs and Border Protection agents arrested or convicted on corruption charges in the past dozen years, according to an analysis by the Center for Investigative Reporting and The Texas Tribune. “Mr. Luna is not one bad apple,” said James Tomsheck, a former senior official at CBP. “He is part of a rate of corruption that exceeded that of any other U.S. federal law-enforcement agency.”
Though the number of corrupt agents represents less than 1 percent of CBP’s 44,000 sworn officers—the largest police force in the U.S.—“any amount is bad, and one person alone can do a lot of damage,” John Roth, the inspector general at the Department of Homeland Security, told The New York Times. “It doesn’t have to be widespread.”
Corrupt officials have given sensitive information to cartels, and waved tons of drugs and thousands of undocumented immigrants through the border in exchange for millions of dollars in bribes. Many operate at official ports of entry, undermining the billions of dollars the government has already spent on fencing, drones, radar, surveillance blimps, agents, and now, perhaps, President Trump’s border wall.
Last year, a Department of Homeland Security report found that corrupt border agents are such an urgent problem, they “pose a national security threat,” and called for more aggressive measures to root them out.
But CBP may instead relax its standards to meet hiring goals set by Trump in a January executive order that mandates 5,500 new border agents. If the agency does, it risks repeating the mistakes of a previous hiring surge in the mid-2000s, when drug cartels took advantage of lower hiring standards to infiltrate the ranks.
More common than infiltrators sent by cartels, however, are agents who go rogue to pay off debt, to help a family member, for sexual favors, or simply for a payday. For Joel Luna, a military veteran who led what looked like a law-abiding life, the trouble seemed to start with his family entanglements, according to Gustavo Garza, the prosecutor who worked on his case. “Whether he did it out of greed or out of love for his family, only he knows,” Garza said.
Police Officer Manny Ochoa responded to Robert Hannan’s panicked call. When he arrived on the scene, the victim’s “neck, where his head was cut off, was at the surface of the water,” he later recalled.
Ochoa reached under the victim’s arms and hoisted the body onto his boat, only a few hundred feet from the shore of South Padre Island, Texas, a popular spring-break destination for thousands of college students. Beach parties raged on nearby.
Some investigators believed that a propeller had cut its head off, but Carlos Garza, the lead investigator for the Cameron County Sheriff’s Department, saw a “clean cut” that made him think it was a homicide. There was also a second cut from the collarbone to the sternum that Garza determined was an unsuccessful attempt “to deflate the body” and keep it from floating.
The body was discovered just miles from the Gulf Cartel’s headquarters in Matamoros, Mexico, but local police were unaccustomed to such brutality. Texas border towns are among the safest communities in the country.
Though the head was missing, “the hands were there, the fingerprints were there,” Garza said. “We made an identification on the body.”
It was Francisco “Frankie” Palacios Paz, a Honduran immigrant who worked at a tire shop an hour from the beach. At the tire shop, investigators found co-workers who said Frankie “‘went to spring break,’ and that didn’t make a lot of sense to us,” Garza said.
Cellphone records showed that the two brothers who co-owned the tire shop exchanged text messages the day Paz disappeared. Paz was involved in drug trafficking with the brothers, who began to worry that he was going to inform on them. “Es un pinche traisionero,” one message read: “He’s a fucking traitor.”
Garza’s team arrested one brother, Eduardo Luna, at the tire shop. In the shop’s dim cinder-block office, blood spatter glowed purple when Texas Rangers sprayed luminol on the walls. A pickaxe at the tire shop tested positive for Paz’s blood. “Frankie had been killed there,” Garza said.
The older brother, Fernando Luna, wasn’t at the shop. Police issued a warrant for his arrest.
That day, as investigators combed through the crime scene, Fernando happened to be returning to Texas from a short visit to Mexico. The warrant flashed across the screen when he gave his name to customs agents at the bridge.
Fernando was in the passenger seat. Sitting next to him in the driver’s seat was Joel Luna, a third brother not previously known to police.
Joel identified himself as a Border Patrol agent.

Customs and Border Protection traces much its corruption problem to a rapid hiring surge in the years after 9/11.
CBP doubled its ranks from 9,821 agents in 2001 to 20,119 in 2009. In order to inflate its force that quickly, CBP relaxed its hiring standards. Border Patrol sent some agents into the field before background checks were complete, and unlike other federal law-enforcement agencies, they didn’t use polygraphs to vet applicants.
During the hiring surge, some veteran agents worried about the quality of the new recruits, and mocked what they dubbed the Bush administration’s “No Trainee Left Behind” policy.
Corruption and excessive use of force complaints spiked, and James Tomsheck was hired to help clean up the Border Patrol. As the agency’s head of internal affairs, he testified to the Senate in 2010 that drug cartels “are doing all that they can to infiltrate CBP through our hiring initiatives.”
Tomsheck decided to take a closer look at the hiring process. During his decades at the Secret Service, he’d used the government’s standard polygraph test to vet agents. The FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives also use the test. Tomsheck began to pilot the polygraph on CBP applicants. “What we found was shocking,” Tomsheck said.
During the piloting process, Tomsheck and his team uncovered about 30 applicants sent by cartels to infiltrate CBP, he said. “That made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.”
In response, in 2010, Congress mandated polygraph testing for all new Customs and Border Protection hires. But the agency didn’t retroactively test those hired before the reforms, like Joel Luna, who joined one year before the Anti-Border Corruption Act passed.
“Polygraphs have made it so we don’t hire people with significant problems,” former CBP commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske told The New York Times last year. “The bigger problem is what happens to people who are already on board.”
Today, Tomsheck says it’s “conservative to estimate that 5 percent of the force”—or “about 1,000 agents”—could be corrupt.
The Department of Homeland Security also concluded that the anti-corruption reforms haven’t gone far enough. A 2015 report says “the true levels of corruption within CBP are not known.”
Some lawmakers and union leaders say the polygraph has imposed an undue burden on hiring. The failure rate for CBP applicants is 65 percent, about double that of applicants to other federal police agencies.
“Not all of that attrition is bad,” said Ron Vitiello, chief of the Border Patrol, acknowledging the role of the polygraph in preventing corruptible recruits from joining the force. “But right now we’re losing people faster than we can hire them, and part of the reason is polygraph.” Border Patrol is already almost 2,000 agents behind schedule for hiring.
Vitiello says the agency needs to streamline all of its vetting measures, including the polygraph, to double its hiring rate.
A recent CBP memo said the agency must hire 2,729 Border Patrol agents per year to achieve full staffing in five years.
The memo also called for new social-media accounts aimed at recruitment. In the past, the Border Patrol has even sponsored a NASCAR race car that flew around the track painted in the agency’s signature green and white. And CBP is willing to recruit from unlikely places. I mentioned to Chief Vitiello that I grew up in McAllen, Texas, an hour from South Padre Island, and did my share of stumbling around the beach during spring break. He asked if I finished college and seemed pleased when I said I had. “Have you ever thought about joining the Border Patrol?” he asked. (I said I had not.)
Despite his enthusiasm, Vitiello said recruiting alone is not enough to meet the staffing targets, especially now that CBP must compete with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is hiring 10,000 new agents. An onerous hiring process can wear on even the most committed recruit, and ICE doesn’t have a polygraph requirement. Vitiello said changes to the polygraph test, like waivers for some military veterans and police officers, could prove key to accelerating hiring. CBP is also piloting a switch to an “alternative polygraph” that is “shorter in duration,” according to the memo.
“They’re doing a 180 from what’s been recommended to fix the problem,” Tomsheck said. The alternative polygraph test, according to Tomsheck, is designed for civilian analysts, not law-enforcement officers, and eliminates questions about drug use and document forgery. “It is frankly absurd,” he said.
If CBP does put these ideas in place, and if Congress approves funding for new agents, the first place to see more boots on the ground will be south Texas, where Joel Luna once worked.

Joel lived in Mexico until fifth grade, when his parents sent him to live with an aunt in Texas so he could attend school in the U.S. He graduated high school, joined the Army, and served in Iraq. “All this time he was away from what his brothers had become,” his defense attorney Carlos Garcia told me.
The youngest brother, Eduardo, was a sicario,—an assassin—for the Gulf Cartel, one of the most powerful drug trafficking organizations operating in the United States. He was known in the cartel as “El Pajaro,” or the Bird.
Fernando, the oldest brother, worked for an oil and gas company in Mexico. When he was laid off, he bought the tire shop near South Padre Island with his severance, and the brothers began using it as a front for drug trafficking and money laundering.
Joel missed his family while serving in the Army. When he came home from Iraq, “he was looking for something more local,” his wife Dulce Luna said. So he applied for the Border Patrol.
Joel had been an infantryman, and in the Border Patrol he especially relished setting up sting operations and chasing suspects through the brush.
In a video clip Joel made at work, he walks toward a beat-up SUV full of drugs wrapped in camouflage tarps. “Boom,” says Luna, “taking down my first load.” In another clip, a red Suburban sits on the side of the highway. “Twenty illegals,” he narrates. Another day, agents load a dehydrated migrant into a helicopter. “We saved the life of a child today, 17 years old, headed to Laredo hospital,” Joel said, panning the camera up toward a scorching sun. “That’s it for today. Tomorrow is another day.”
After police found Joel driving his brother, a capital murder suspect, across the U.S.-Mexico border, they started looking into his finances. They found that Joel had deposited large sums of cash into his sister-in-law’s bank account that he then used to buy houses. “He was involved in laundering money to buy homes for his brothers,” prosecutor Gustavo Garza said.
Before securing homes like these for his brothers, the three of them lived under the same roof. Two years before Robert Hannan found Franklin Paz’s body, the brothers had moved in with Joel and Dulce after a cartel rival tried to kill Eduardo, forcing them to flee Mexico.
“If he did anything wrong, it was to provide shelter to his brothers—brothers who he’d been separated from” as a child, said Joel’s defense attorney Carlos Garcia.
When police searched the Luna property, they found a large safe that would become the centerpiece of the trial. It contained Joel’s commemorative Border Patrol badge, $89,000 in cash, more than a kilogram of cocaine, 17 grams of methamphetamine, scales, baggies for drug sales, and a gold-plated pistol engraved with “Gulf Cartel” on one side of the barrel, and “El Pajaro”—Eduardo’s nickname—on the other.
A children’s notebook with a puppy on the cover contained meticulous records of sales of drugs, guns, ammo, and used cars. Someone had written “The Bird’s Expenses” in faded sharpie on the cover.
At trial, Fernando Luna broke down in tears as he took the stand. The oldest brother had taken a plea deal, and agreed to testify against Eduardo and Joel to avoid life in prison.
Fernando told the court that Eduardo shot Francisco “Frankie” Palacios Paz in the head at the brothers’ tire shop. Eduardo was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to life without parole.
Joel’s defense attorney sufficiently proved that his client was at work when the murder took place. But the prosecutor, Gustavo Garza, argued that the guns, drugs, ammo, and meticulous records showed that Joel had used his position as a Border Patrol agent to help his brothers’ business.
Joel was acquitted of murder charges, and convicted of two counts of engaging in organized criminal activity. A judge sentenced him to 20 years in prison.

A few days after the sentencing, the streets around the courthouse were flooded with attendees to a big annual parade.
Louder still were the police sirens: The largest contingent of the parade by far was from Customs and Border Protection. Green-and-white SUVs rolled down Elizabeth Street, their lights flashing, shepherding the uniformed officers on horseback, mountain bikes, and ATVs.
“We are currently doing an active recruitment campaign,” CBP spokesman Elias Rodriguez told me. He walked alongside a Department of Homeland Security flatbed trailer carrying a mariachi band featuring agents on accordion and the bongos. “Many of us are from the local area, so we’re glad to participate,” Rodriguez said. “It symbolizes the friendship between Matamoros and Brownsville.”
As the parade made its way toward the Rio Grande river, a college student in the crowd held a sign that read “No Wall, No Raids, #Resist.” The student, Gilberto Garza, was skeptical of the need for more agents. “My parents are illegals,” he said. “They’re just here to work.” He was also worried about the the integrity of the Border Patrol because of something he’d heard on the news. He remembered a story about an agent who “had a stash with like $100,000 and they traced it back to the Mexican cartel,” he said. He couldn’t remember Joel Luna’s name. But the brother’s misdeeds had left an impression on him all the same. “You can’t even trust your own Border Patrol agents.”
Corruption of our US Federal agencies tied to US DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE since Bush era is indeed a problem. We understand our 99% WE THE LATINO CITIZENS are compromised from both directions. They don't trust their sovereign Latino national government and MOVING FORWARD has created the same inside our US government agencies.
What we liked in the novel SULFUR SPRINGS was the attempt to illustrate how these US Federal agencies unfortunately enfolded into HOMELAND SECURITY now operated from FOREIGN SOVEREIGNTY OF MALTA do have Federal agents wanting to do a good job; who do respect human life and dignity. CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA are the OPEN BORDER crowd pretending to be pro-immigrant while creating these corruptions inside agencies tasked to protect immigrant rights inside America. What REAL left social progressive Democrats want is a FUNCTIONING US IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT-----that is ICE.
The characters in SULFUR SPRINGS included BORDER ANGELS as a refugee immigrant rescue group. The dynamic of a 'good guy' as BORDER PATROL has those officers deciding which group to pursue-----global drug cartels or BORDER ANGELS helping to rescue those 99% of Latino immigrants in deserts trying to reach America. The 'good guy' in SULFUR SPRINGS partnered with BORDER ANGELS over global drug cartel.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the United States tasked to enforce the immigration laws of the United States and to investigate criminal and terrorist activity of foreign nationals residing in the United States. ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).
If ICE were not corrupted by global banking 1% CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA it would be functioning both to secure border AND to protect those immigrants trapped in this WAR AT THE BORDER. If we abolish a US Federal agency tasked with CHECKS AND BALANCES against those agencies filled with corruption at the border ----we dismantle all our US three branches of government CHECKS AND BALANCES------we must FIX these US JUSTICE agencies by getting FOREIGN SOVEREIGNTY OF MALTA ---KNIGHTS OF MALTA out of these agencies. This is the source of criminality, brutality, and corruption.
When global banking 1% freemason/Greek UNITED NATIONS ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE OPEN BORDER groups are the one's wanting to end ICE-----they are tied to the source of all the corruption inside these US Justice agencies----
US immigration: what is Ice and why is it controversial?
Family separations at the border are driving calls to abolish the agency seen as villain
As outrage over family separations at the southern US border continues to boil, protesters and even a number of Democratic politicians are increasingly calling for the abolition of the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, or Ice.
Those calls reached a new dramatic pitch on Wednesday when a woman scaled the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, and at least six protesters were arrested after hanging a banner calling for the abolition of Ice.
What is Ice?
Ice was created in 2003 when the Bush administration reorganized a number of federal agencies in response to the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks, and placed them under the brand new Department of Homeland Security. Ice, which now employs over 20,000 people, is one of three agencies that absorbed and assumed the functions of the now defunct Immigration and Naturalization Service and the United States Customs Service.
Ice is not the agency conducting family separations at the US border. Ice is not responsible for patrolling or securing US borders; that task falls to the Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP). It is CBP agents who have been charged with enforcing the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy, detaining migrants and asylum seekers at the border and initiating the separation of undocumented families.
Instead, Ice is primarily tasked with what it calls Enforcement and Removal Operations: essentially the location, detention and deportation of undocumented immigrants who have already successfully crossed the border and are living in the US. Under President Barack Obama, the unit prioritized removing those undocumented immigrants who had committed serious crimes, but the Trump administration has broadened its mandate to target anyone in the US illegally.
Why is Ice controversial?
In January 2017, the president signed an executive order to increase the agency’s staffing by 10,000 employees. The order also vastly expanded Ice’s immigration enforcement powers.
The agency also houses a Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit which targets major border-related crimes such as the trafficking of drugs, weapons and human beings, as well as a much smaller legal services department.
Because of this multipart structure, even some Ice agents believe it should be abolished, although likely not in the way that activists are calling for. In a letter to the homeland security secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, earlier this week, 19 HSI agents expressed concern that Donald Trump’s hardline crackdown on undocumented migrants has made it harder for them to conduct effective investigations into significant national security issues.
Annual immigration arrests have soared since January 2017, from 110,568 in 2016 to 143,470 last year, although they still remain below the height of annual arrests under Barack Obama’s administration.
Now, this is indeed a right wing news media just as FAKE NEWS as any but REAL left social progressives have been shouting for a few decades about the OPEN BORDERS NGOs being the same global banking 5% players as CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA and the ARIZONA MAFIA.
OPEN BORDERS is a WORLD BANK/IMF policy with goals of creating population tensions between sovereign citizens. SOROS----KOCH BROTHERS----GOLDMAN SACHS----SAME PEOPLE. We shouted FALSE FLAG over those IMMIGRANT FAMILY SEPARATION media in southern CA because it is a deliberate manipulation to create reasons to end our US Federal agencies tied to BORDER AND SOVEREIGNTY.
When we read the novel SULFUR SPRINGS what we see is a HERO ----CORK an ex-police officer navigating a BORDER PATROL and law enforcement agencies. Tom's wife being a native American once married to a LATINO having a son PETER all feeling the pressures of DRIVING WHILE any color than white. The novel does address well how BORDER PATROL officers work to simply perform DUTIES. Throughout the novel the 'good guy' leader of Border Patrol did serve to protect TOM, RAINEY, PETER----the 'good guy' Border Patrol was able to make the distinction between his duties tied to actions of BORDER ANGELS vs actions of BORDER DRUG CARTELS and criminal developers ----------we feel most of our BORDER PATROL officers do try to balance these duties.
BOTH OUR US 99% WE THE PEOPLE AND OUR NEW TO US IMMIGRANTS NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT OPEN BORDERS NGOS ARE OPERATED BY THE SAME GLOBAL BANKING 1% CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA CREATING ARIZONA MAFIA-----WE WANT TO FIX OUR US JUSTICE AGENCIES NOT ELIMINATE THEM.
We are sure SULFUR SPRINGS MAYOR MARION and global banking financial player JAYNE would love to have gotten rid of BORDER PATROL AND ICE as well.
Open Borders Advocates Continue Fake News Campaign Against ICE
14 Feb 2017Austin, TX Bob Price
As the weekend’s roundup of criminal aliens winds down, immigration advocates continue to spread fear mongering messages laced with false information about the routine operation. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement Removal Operations (ERO) agents routinely execute targeted criminal alien roundup operations. In May 2015, Breitbart Texas reported 2,059 criminal aliens were rounded up during Operation Cross Check.
ICE agents targeted 1,000 of the captured criminal aliens because they had felony convictions, officials reported. Those range from voluntary manslaughter, child pornography, robbery, kidnapping, and rape. Fifty-eight of those captured were known gang members, while 89 were convicted sex offenders.
In December, another targeted roundup netted 71 more criminal aliens in jail — including illegal immigrants with criminal convictions of drug trafficking, DUI, weapons violations, fraud, domestic violence, and burglary.
Similarly, a September roundup landed 36 more criminal aliens in jail. Operation Safe Nation and Operation No Safe Haven III rounded up 17 illegal immigrants who were thought to pose a public safety threat and 19 suspected of human rights violations in other countries, according to information provided by ICE officials to Breitbart Texas.
“These are existing, established fugitive operations teams,” ICE officials reported on Monday. “ICE does not conduct sweeps, checkpoints or raids that target aliens indiscriminately.”
Despite these regularly occurring targeted roundup operations, immigration activists continue to spread false information about government retaliation and broad sweeping immigration operations. ICE officials called these rumors, speculation and false reporting “dangerous and irresponsible.”
The agency is not detaining huge numbers of people in Austin, Denise Gillman told the Austin American-Statesman. She operates the University of Texas Immigration Clinic. “They’re making their presence known, driving around immigrant neighborhoods.”
“It seems to me it’s intended to send a message that this is a crackdown, this is a new administration, and there will be more enforcement actions in immigrant neighborhoods,” she said.
Gillman appears oblivious to statements made by ICE officials that this weekend’s operation was planned well in advance of the new administration’s taking office and that targeted immigration operations such as this occur on a regular basis.
“They’re secretive about who’s being targeted,” Gillman continued. “That is probably a function of ICE saying they’re targeting only specific individuals with criminal histories and prior deportation orders. But other people are getting picked up, and that’s where you see the reluctance of the agency” to explain exactly who is being arrested, she told the Statesman.
Again, ICE had no reluctance to explain this point.
“During targeted enforcement operations ICE officers frequently encounter additional suspects who may be in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws,” ICE officials said in a widely reported statement on Monday. “Those persons will be evaluated on a case by case basis and, when appropriate, arrested by ICE.”
Austin City Councilman Greg Casar added to the fear and false information about the operation by claiming the enforcement action was retaliation for standing up against President Donald Trump’s immigration plans.
“I believe ICE is out in public arresting people in order to retaliate against our community for standing up for our values against people like Abbott and Trump,” Councilman Casar posted on Facebook. “Trump and his allies will do everything they can to divide Americans, invoke fear in vulnerable neighborhoods, and demonize an entire community of people.”
POLITICO also piled onto the fear mongering stating, “Trump just getting started with immigration raids.” The sub-headline continues, “The president granted himself sweeping authority to step up deportations, and he’s poised to use it.” This, despite the fact that the president’s authority on immigration enforcement comes from Congress and the Constitution.
The left-of-center news outlet continued, calling the criminal alien roundup a “so-called ‘targeted enforcement operation.'”
POLITICO IS A FAR-RIGHT WING GLOBAL BANKING NEO-LIBERAL MEDIA OUTLET---NOT LEFT
“About three-fourths of those arrested were immigrants who had been convicted of crimes ranging from homicide, aggravated sexual abuse and drunken driving,” POLITICO reported. The rest were picked up for various immigration violations, such as illegally reentering the country after being removed. The outlet ignored the fact that many of those illegally reentering the country after removal were violent sex offenders and drug traffickers.
The fear mongering continued as immigration attorney David Leopold told POLITICO, “When you read that executive order, there is no other conclusion that you can draw except that everybody is a target. Everybody,” Leopold said. He formerly served as president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “It’s carefully couched in terms of prioritizing criminals, but it’s designed to encourage and allow ICE agents to pick up anybody they can get their hands on.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) falsely claimed the arrests were “targeting law-abiding immigrants.”
Center for Immigration Studies Executive Director Mark Krikorian responded to the fear mongering, calling the comments “hysterical” and “almost comically exaggerated,” POLITICO reported.
Retired ICE Special Agent Claude Arnold put things in perspective.
“The priorities are still going to be the same priorities, criminals first,” he told POLITICO. “But what the president’s executive order did do, it returned discretion to arrest and not to arrest to the line-level officer. … If they encounter someone who’s here illegally, they have the authority and discretion to arrest them, period.”
We are discussing labor public policy looking at just a few labor industries which will grow in MOVING FORWARD ---global mining meets global military junta----security.
Our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE were silent as these few decades of ROBBER BARON frauds corrupted all our government agencies especially those tied to US JUSTICE DEPARTMENT and US SECURITY AGENCIES. Below we see why those employed in these Federal agencies are constantly in flux. Our US law enforcement employees are recruited from many venues but often are former military/veterans/former county or state police officers.
We have in Baltimore a high turnover rate in Baltimore City police and many who leave state the systemic criminality and corruption inside the city police department to be that reason-----no doubt that is true for our US BORDER PATROL. There is nothing more dangerous for our security employees than having corrupt law enforcement employees inside operations---as we see in the novel SULFUR SPRINGS. The Bush era enfolding of all US security agencies into what is global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS FOREIGN SOVEREIGNTY OF MALTA --KNIGHTS OF MALTA brings the FOXES to being in charge of the HEN HOUSE.
To FIX BALTIMORE we must get global banking 1% BALTIMORE DEVELOPMENT, GREATER BALTIMORE COMMITTEE, GLOBAL HEDGE FUND CORPORATION JOHNS HOPKINS ----out of our Baltimore City agencies.
We KNOW our US police and military have some strong FREEMASONRY ties-----please STAND UP and be US CITIZENS!
The Employee Turnover for the Border Patrol

The Border Patrol was formed in 1924 as a federal law enforcement authority charged with protecting national borders. Along with most of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Border Patrol was merged with Customs in 2002 to form U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which is a part of the Department of Homeland Security. The Border Patrol has grown to more than 21,000 employees as of the time of publication, but has been plagued by ongoing high employee turnover.
Most Border Patrol agents have difficult, stressful, and occasionally physically dangerous jobs. New hires must complete rigorous training of up to three months at Border Patrol Academy before they start work in the field. All Border Patrol Academy graduates must serve at least two years on the Mexican border and many are assigned to remote rural areas with relatively few recreational amenities. Border Patrol agents are expected to work long hours, including nights, and deal with highly stressful situations.
Employee Retention Problems
The Border Patrol has had issues with employee retention as least as far back as 2001. Turnover has been as high as 30 percent among Border Patrol employees during their first 18 months. Experts say many leave due to stress, relatively low pay and long hours. Given the length of time required for extensive background checks and training,hire new agents quickly is difficult, thus adding to the conditions that spur turnover in the first place.
The reasons for the high turnover rate among Border Patrol agents are complex, but include high stress, long hours, perception of poor administrative support, and culture shock. A 2008 story by the Associated Press says that Mike Fisher, at the time a sector chief of the Border Patrol in San Diego, faced "culture shock" from working on the Texas-Mexico border.
One obvious solution to minimize long hours is to hire more agents, and the CBP has ramped up their hiring campaigns since 2001, more than doubling the number of Border Patrol agents to 21,000. However, given that it can take up to 18 month to complete a thorough background check, as well as another three months to complete the academy, staffing remains an ongoing problem. The 2013 federal budget sequester has also impacted CBP, who notified all 60,000 employees of mandatory 14-day furloughs in effect from April through September. Other possible solutions to improve Border Patrol employee retention include improved training, shorter rotations and more opportunities for career advancement and lateral movement within the CBP.
