On Monday the DOJ sentenced an illegal alien to prison for attempting to traffic massive amounts of fentanyl into the United States. According to the DOJ, the illegal immigrant was in possession of enough fentanyl to kill 500,000 people.
 
The 53-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, Pablo Vega-Ontanon, who was reportedly illegally living in Georgia, will be sentenced to 6-years inside a federal prison with a five-year supervised release term. The DOJ has charged Vega-Ontanon on bases of intent to distribute over ten kilos of fentanyl laced heroin. Via the Daily Caller.

According to a DOJ press release, Pablo Vega-Ontanon landed in Gulfport, Mississippi, back in November 2018, alongside two of his chosen partners. The three men worked as a team to sell their laced heroin to local citizens within the United States. 

The illegal pusher team eventually attempted to sell heroin to a confidential informant, who then pointed authorities to approximately 10 kilos of heroin hidden inside a compartment in their vehicle. The three men were arrested, while their seized substances were being tested for narcotic specifics. 
 
Quickly after the test, authorities not only specified the nine kilos of heroin, but also included one kilogram of the deadly drug fentanyl, which is usually used as a cutting agent. The amount of fentanyl seized was enough to produce 500,000 FATAL doses of cut heroin, which will be then sold and consumed by thousands of American citizens.

Pablo Vega-Ontanon was officially sentenced to a six-year sentence for possession with intent to distribute heroin. The illegal alien was sentenced by U.S. District Jusge Sul Ozerden in the Southern District of Mississippi. The case was originally opened by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Home Security Investigations unit in New Orleans and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John Meynardie.

According to multiple reports, Co-defendants Edgar Ortega-Casarrubias and Eric Estudillo-Carrazco were charged alongside Vega-Ontanon back in November 2018. Ortega-Casarrubias plead guilty to charges and was sentenced to 127-months in federal prison. Estudillo-Carrazco faces possible life in prison for his role, pleading guilty to his participation back in August. 
 
The latest drug bust serves as another example of the adherent dangers that linger around our borders. President Donald Trump and his administration continue to battle for the safety of our borders, directly linking the drug trade to the overall battle against illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border.

In 2017, approximately 15,482 American lives were taken from heroin overdoses. That number boils down to 298 deaths PER WEEK. With more horrifying drug statistics pilling within the U.S., President Trump points out the heroin is being mulled from Mexico, strengthening his point for the absolute need for successful border security. Via the Daily Caller.

“Our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs, including meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl. Every week, 300 of our citizens are killed by heroin alone, 90% of which floods across from our southern border. More Americans will die from drugs this year than were killed in the entire Vietnam War,” Trump said during a presidential address in January. “Thousands more lives will be lost if we don’t act right now.”
