SEGUIN, Texas – On Friday, April 15th, 2016, an eighteen month investigation by a regional task force resulted in over a dozen arrests of Texas Mexican Mafia members and their associates. Suspects were identified and located in Guadalupe and surrounding counties. Arrest and search warrants were executed at multiple locations in Guadalupe and surrounding counties.

During the execution of the arrest and search warrants, almost a dozen known Mexican Mafia gang members and their associates have been arrested and are in custody. A large quantity of drugs including methamphetamines, cocaine and marijuana, were seized, in addition to large amounts of cash and weapons.

“These are dangerous individuals and we don’t want anywhere near our community or even our region,” added Ure, “We really do have a safe community In Seguin and we want it to stay that way. That’s why we have invested so much of our resources into this lengthy investigation.”

"This will make a big bent in the Texas Mexican Mafia," said the Seguin Chief of Police. "The amount of money we seized we can't count that by hand. We have a machine counting it right now."

That must be a **** load of money. Maybe the feds can use this money to build a wall.

Yep, just like the Irish brought us their 'love' during Prohibition, the Italians theirs, the Jews threw us some love, along with the Chinese, Japanese, Poles, Russians and of course the 'legal' mobsters- the rail, cattle and mine barons...

Time for a new tune... this one is plenty old... :peace

Guess what created that Mexican Mafia and made them rich? Here's a hint- they didn't appear, fully formed, on American land.

Right. Selling illegal drugs to Americans, more specifically. Now, if those drugs weren't illegal...
Ah, but that'd never do. Think of all the jobs that would be lost.

I would rephrase that to say 'by selling drugs to the market created in the US.

One thing different from a dug lord and a GM corporate head: The GM guy has to advertise and create a market, the drug lord has one waiting for him
