Illegal Immigrants and Drug Controversy?

Illegal Immigrants and Drug Controversy?

Authorities had spotted the pot farms in Los Padres National Forest about eight miles from Rose Valley north of Ojai about three

weeks ago. On Wednesday, they seized 7,514 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of more than $15 million, said Sgt.

Mike Horne of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department’s Narcotics Unit. Illegal immigrants from Mexico are allegedly responsible

for planting marijuana crops in this U.S. National Park in order to avoid having to smuggle the drugs across the border and sell

them in the U.S. http://www.venturacountystar.com/news/2008/jul/31/pot-plants-seized-burned/.

On June 15th 2009, on his CNN show, AC 360, ”Anderson Cooper” reported on this issue as a national security threat to the United

States. He reports, “also, inside a corner of the national parks you have probably never seen before, where Mexican drug lords

have illegal immigrants hard at work growing marijuana. That’s right, foreign drug lords, illegal immigrants, heavily armed drug

compounds right in America’s national parks.”
