On August 4, 2022, four illegal aliens were arrested on major drug smuggling charges in separate incidents in Wake County, North Carolina.
Due to the lack of border enforcement and several sheriffs throughout North Carolina enacting non-cooperation policies with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Mexican drug cartels have set up large-scale operations across the state.
The list of those arrested for trafficking on the fourth in Wake County follows:
-Name: David Gomez Charge(s): Trafficking in Cocaine, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
-Name: Cesar Desena-Arias
Charge(s): Conspiracy to Traffic in Cocaine
-Name: Uriel Martinez Charge(s): Trafficking in Cocaine -Name: Luis Alberto Portes-Martes
Charge(s): Trafficking in Cocaine
Because Wake County Sheriff Gerald M. Baker refuses to honor ICE detainers, none of the suspects will be held, if they can make bail (Although the bond amounts are very high for all of the aforementioned defendants.)
In 2021, the Drug Enforcement Administration released the following statement on cartel activity in the state:
Since the Atlanta area has become a primary hub of operation for Mexican drug cartel activity, because of Charlotte's close proximity to Atlanta, Charlotte has been identified as a secondary hub for Mexican cartel activity. Likewise, Charlotte's close proximity to the Piedmont region and elsewhere spawn such cartel-related activity.
The most active cartels in the Tarheel State are believed to be the Sinaloa Cartel, the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación and the Beltrán Leyva Organization.
