ICE touts $41 million cash seizure in Mexico, Colombia
Mexican and Colombian officials working with U.S. agents have seized about $41 million in cash hidden in shipping containers, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency announced Monday.
The U.S. agency, commonly called ICE, says the seizures were made September 9-18. It called them the largest seizure of cash ever found in shipping containers destined for Colombia and the largest for the agency since its inception.
Morton said the money will be forfeited in accordance with the laws of the nations where it was seized, with Colombia keeping $28 million and Mexico getting $13 million.
Ah, "the largest seizure yet." The never ending repeating chorus of the Drug War, each year it gets bigger no matter how much the Drug Warriors say they've accomplished.
The seizures of drugs grows, the quantity of drugs grows, the amount of money government officials take grows.
Yes, surely those who cling to the Drug War Tree will experience one of their biggest seizures ever, as they stop condemning us and they realize who they've been serving instead of God. (Repent and join LEAP.)
And if you think they didn't time the seizures so they would be handed over to Mexico and Colombia, ha, I have a bridge you might be interested in. Which is why I titled this piece, "U.S. Works to Get Other Countries Addicted to Grabbing Money."
