American Fuel Up On Cheaper Gas Over The Border Of Mexico

A Los Angeles police officer and his girlfriend were indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury on charges of attempting to smuggling a Mexican citizen into the United States.

Officer Carlos Curiel Quezada, Jr., 34, and his girlfriend, Angelica Godinez, 31, both of Los Angeles, were indicted Wednesday on one count of Bringing in Illegal Aliens without Presentation, according to the Department of Justice. Quezada is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday, while Godinez is set to be arraigned May 12.

According to court documents, Quezada drove his 2014 Nissan Juke with Godinez in the passenger seat through the Otay Mesa Port of Entry on March 14 at about 6:30 p.m. and told a Customs and Border Protection office they had nothing to declare. The couple was referred for a more intensive inspection, during which officer detected something unusual in the rear cargo area.

Antanasio Perez Avalos, a 26-year-old Mexican national, was found in the compartment in the spare-tire area, federal officials said. All three were taken into custody and interviewed.

Quezada and Godinez were charged two days later, but those charges were dismissed on March 19.

If Quezada and Godinez are convicted as charged in the indictment, they face 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

    How is this any different than all of the Executive Orders being processed out of the White House faster than a speeding bullet? Providing aid and comfort at every level is against the immigration laws, but in Obama’s case, he is using a “non-constitutional” tool – Executive Order – to not only provide for aid and comfort, but also a long list of incentives called tax payer PUBLIC SERVICES. Additionally, besides numerous other illegal actions, Obama is openly defying numerous Federal Laws….laws which by the presidential oath requires him to faithfully execute. Just because Congress isn’t passing laws to accommodate his personal wishes doesn’t mean that he is above the law and can do whatever he must in order to satisfy his arrogance. There is no doubt that these two people need to be prosecuted, however, I would hasten to say that the Mexican citizen, in the end, will be “kicked back” across the Border with a warning….even though he could be subject to the same penalties that will be meted out to the 2 other criminals. This is yet another example of selective application of the law, as if the laws were displayed on a cafeteria line from which one could pick and choose, rather than served up one at a time where the value and meaning of the law would be appreciated. We live in a nation that is in dire peril and soon, that will change to a nation where the laws will be enforced against those who are law abiding citizens and who disagree with the government.
