The southern U.S. border remains mostly unprotected while Democrats remain determined to prevent building the border wall. Meanwhile, cocaine continues to flow into the United States, smuggled in partly by the Hezb’allah terrorist organization. The drug epidemic has cost a great number of lives, and the federal government must stop the flow of drugs by building a border wall, and by using new technologies to detect intrusion into the U.S.

Hezb’allah has murdered hundreds of citizens over the years, including in the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing that killed 241 service personnel and the Beirut embassy bombing that killed 17 Americans. These attacks demonstrate that Hezb’allah is an enemy of the United States and is aligned with the Iranian regime’s “death to America” mindset.

However, the billions of dollars of cocaine and other narcotics that Hezb’allah smuggles into the United States and other countries each year is even more dangerous. According to an exhaustive 2017 Politico report by Josh Meyer, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) initiated Project Cassandra in 2008 to investigate Hezb’allah’s involvement in widespread drug-trafficking and put a stop to it.

The Politico report reveals how Hezb’allah has been raking in $200 million per month from cocaine and other drug sales. Ayman Joumaa is a drug kingpin who has worked in concert with Mexico’s violent and murderous Los Zetas drug cartel to move multi-ton loads of cocaine directly into the United States. Joumaa’s network would launder the drug income through the purchase of used cars at about 300 dealerships in the U.S. The cars would be sent to West Africa to sell. The proceeds from those sold cars would be couriered to Lebanon to fund Hezb’allah’s terrorism. This scheme was reported as early as 2011 in the New York Times.

In November 2011, prosecutors indicted Joumaa in absentia, accusing him of conspiring with Los Zetas and drug-suppliers in Colombia and Venezuela to smuggle at least 85,000 kilograms of cocaine into the U.S. and launder hundreds of millions of dollars in proceeds. The above mentioned New York Times report from December 2011 made clear that Joumaa was connected to Hezb’allah and, according to Israeli intelligence, worked for a senior Hezb’allah operative believed by Israel to be in charge of Hezb’allah’s drug operations.
