The son of a Sinaloa cartel leader is apprehended at the border carrying drugs. From ‘Fox News Latino‘ (sigh…):
SAN DIEGO (AP) – The son of one of the world’s most-wanted drug lords was arrested at an Arizona border crossing to face drug-trafficking charges in the United States, authorities said Friday.
Serafin Zambada, 23, was arrested Wednesday afternoon while crossing the border from Mexico in Nogales, Ariz., accompanied by his wife in a pedestrian lane, said Kelly Thornton, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in San Diego. The wife was detained and released.
Zambada’s father is Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, who survived decades of turf wars and rose to the top of Mexico’s underworld through savvy deal-brokering. Ismael Zambada is considered the strategist of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, more involved in daily operations than his better-known boss, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Wait. Doesn’t this make Zambada a ‘Dreamer’?
Not necessary, as this vibrancy-bringer was born in the good ‘ole U.S. of A.:
Serafin Zambada, also called “Sera,” is not known for involvement in the drug trade in the Mexican state of Sinaloa, where he lives and where his family is from, according to family and friends. His indictment filed under seal in San Diego on Sept. 27 offers little detail, saying only that he conspired to bring at least 500 grams of methamphetamine and 5 kilograms of cocaine to the U.S.
He was born in San Diego, said Thornton, who confirmed that he is Ismael Zambada’s son. Amy Roderick, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, also confirmed the identity.
Let’s hope Smilin’ Louis, The Organizer, Conservatism Inc, the GOP, and The Zuck can push through Amnesty as soon as possible.
