This is truly amazing. The amount of money that goes to these drug lords is amazing and the terror they inflict on society, especially on the Southwest of the United States. This might give you some perspective on the Arizona Law that was just passed, with no help from the Federal Government in securing our borders.
The back yard pool
This pile of cash before it was counted was estimated to be approimately 18 Million Dollars! After it was counted it turned out to be a little more than 22 Million Dollars!
This case is filled with 100 dollar Bills estimated to be 1/2 a million dollars and no doubt headed out to make another drug by perhaps from the columbians
They also had millions in Columbian money and Mexican Pesos although they preferred American dollars for the most part. There was even some stacks of Chinese Yen found in one closet.
More Gold machine guns and pistols – most were never fired, just held for collection value
The money and valuables found in this one house alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man woman and child in the U.S.A. for 12 years! There are believed to be approximately 27 more of these houses in Mexico alone not to mention the ones in other countries who are enriching themselves in the drug trade. These people have so much money, they make the Arab oil shieks look like welfare recipients.
Their money can buy the best politicians, the best cops, the best judges, whatever they need they just throw down stacks of cash and it is theirs!
This is why the drug problem is so difficult to fight.
