How on earth could an illegal alien operate a major money laundering network in the United States ? The reason is because the US Immigration enforcement program is broken; there's absolutely no excuse for this law enforcement malpractice. Moreover, if this is one case we have seen, expect that there are many, many others. That's all we need, Latin American money launderers, who are undocumented aliens, moving narco-profits inside the United States. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) should be ashamed of itself.
One wonders how many times Valencia Ortega came into, and left, the US, while supervising the movement of millions of dollars in criminal proceeds.
