SKUNK IN THE TRUNK
Mexican Drug Smugglers High on Ford
Trump’s Wall is an epic fail in the making. Here’s how the Sinaloa Cartel smuggles drugs into the U.S. from a Ford plant in Sonora.
Fresh evidence indicating just how totalmente loco is President Donald Trump’s scheme to build “The Wall” turned up this month at the Ford dealership in Youngstown, Ohio.
That’s where the bales of marijuana were discovered, hidden in a batch of Ford Fusions shipped by rail from the company’s plant in Mexico. A subsequent investigation turned up 17 other loaded Fusions in three other Ohio counties and nearby Pennsylvania. In total, police found 400 pounds of weed between July 7 and 11. That’s more than $1 million which should have gone toward lining cartel pockets, instead of making headlines.
Long maligned for its lack of appeal to young drivers, the Fusion now seems to be trending with a certain demographic. Just not the one Ford had in mind.
