Federal Agents in Los Angeles arrested 17 people accused of participating in a drug ring that funneled cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine from Mexico into the United States.

Among the 17, according to the LA Times, a San Fernando Auto Repair owner and a taco stand owner, also from the valley.

These smuggling operations are present 24/7 and more drugs are being smuggled into America by the minute.

Shows like “Border Wars” show how drug cartels are pushing their product through into the United States.

Some stash their load in cars, hoping not to get caught at border checkpoints, while others run it across the border to people on the other side.

There is nobody to blame but the people using this stuff. If there wasn’t a demand, we wouldn’t see people risk their lives or their freedom to import drugs.
