A former Drug Enforcement Administration agent predicts an increase in Chinese immigrants crossing illegally into the Rio Grande Valley.

“The Chinese organized criminals—especially when it comes to human smuggling—will team up with anybody that will assist them in transporting people from China to the U.S. via Mexico . . .  The Zetas are well organized in smuggling people in the U.S.,” says Phil Jordan, a former DEA supervisor.

Agents found the connection between the two organizations by investigating the Zetas’ biggest moneymaking operation—drug trafficking.

“The Chinese have always been involved in precursor chemicals that are used to manufacture meth,” explains Jordan.

He says the Zetas and Chinese mafia have a drug trafficking network that runs through Latin America. U.S. drug agents and customs officers intercepted 40-foot containers filled with a highly dangerous and addictive drug used to make methamphetamine. The containers were headed to the Zetas in Belize. The seizure is reportedly worth $10 billion.

“If the intelligence continues to show the Chinese are partnering with the Zetas, you’re going to see an obvious increase in the number of Chinese coming across,” says Jordan.

The U.S. State Department’s 2010 human trafficking report states the Zetas have the biggest human trafficking network in the world transporting Asians. They charge up to $70,000 or more per person. {snip}

  • AR, file this one in the “model minority” category.

    “He adds most Chinese immigrants coming to the U.S. are trying to escape communism. ‘They’re just trying to get over here for a better way of life, opportunity,’ says [former DEA official] Jordan.” (As he carefully displayed his PC credentials, lest anyone think he was a “xenophobe.”)

    Oh well then…nothing to see here…move along people!  Our high-achieving, “better than white kids in school minorities” are forced by our inhumane immigration laws, and the lingering legacy of the racist Chinese Exclusion Act, to come look for “opportunity” the illegal way. 

    That’s unfortunate, but the leaders of both parties can be expected to push for a huge increase in legal immigration after the election which will no doubt alleviate the problem.

    Actually it doesn’t matter what they do. China refuses to accept almost all Chinese nationals we deport (and we won’t force them to), so if a third country won’t take them they stay here…forever…and help hide their relatives when THEY get smuggled in.

    But as long as they’re not forming flash mobs and beating up whites that’s OK with some people.  

  • I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t get out of bed in the morning without my Chinese Meth.  Viva DIEversity!

    They still have a lower crime rate than whites.

      Go and live in China! Just because they have lower crime rates doesn’t mean they belong in White societies.

      A White America is better than a white/Chinese America.

      I suppose you think Jews are good for America, too?

      Jews, who sold opium to the Chinese. Jews, who spearhead every anti-christian non-White movement in America.

      Mr Engleman, you are a danger to a White America.
