Last month, Customs & Border Protection encountered 180,034 persons attempting to infiltrate the Southwest Border – and FBI Director Christopher Wray now says there is no doubt drug cartels are a big part of that push.
According to Fox News, “Wray was asked at a House Judiciary Committee hearing by Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., whether his agency knew of instances where foreign nationals coming across the border were deeply indebted to cartels and smugglers.”
Wray’s answer: “Certainly…absolutely.”
McClintock followed up, asking if those debts are collected through indentured servitude.
“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,” Fox reported.
The timing of this committee hearing couldn’t be any more damning for the Biden administration, who just had a disastrous foreign policy trip to Central America, in which VP Kamala Harris refused to visit the border.
