Mexican border state governor pleaded guilty to money laundering in U.S. district court

Former governor from Tamaulipas, Tomas Yarrington Ruvalcaba pleaded guilty to money laundering in U.S. district court on Thursday afternoon according to Breitbart News

The politician is one of two border-state governors who were convicted on charges of bribery and officials believe that they are tied to cartels. 

A former governor from Tamaulipas pleaded guilty to a money laundering charge in a U.S. court. The politician is one of two former governors from that border state who was indicted or convicted for bribes, presumably tied to cartels.

Yarrington faces eight charges in conjunction with bank fraud or money laundering conspiracy and is scheduled to be sentenced at a later date.

Yarrington served as the governor of Tamaulipas, which is a Mexican border state that hugs the southernmost point of Texas, 1999 to 2005 and allegedly moved millions of dollars from corrupt businessmen to drug traffickers, using United States bank accounts. 

According to Breitbart’s Ildefonso Ortiz, even after leaving office, “Yarrington lived a life of luxury, traveling the world and even having state-funded bodyguards.”

It is believed that the corrupt former governor earned as much as $132 million through his dirty business dealings. He is suspected of working with the Gulf Cartel, Los Zetas, and the Beltran Leyva Cartel in an effort to give them access to top politicians for favors.

Former Governor Eugenio Hernandez Flores is also wanted in the state of Texas for money laundering and believed to be guilty of assisting corrupt businesses in bribing the cartels through U.S. accounts and real estate. 

While the idea of money laundering and real estate holdings might seem a bit sterile and unconcerned to the average citizen, those who live on the border of Texas and Mexico can tell horror stories about what the cartels are able to do with their seemingly endless resources.

    International money laundering for drug cartels through U.S. banking systems has to be permitted/sanctioned by U.S. banking regulators and Lawmakers right?

Cartels have to have people in the United States to help them push the money into the banks some of the banks are even corrupt they produce and launder money through the cartels back into the states and make land purchases and other such purchases to make the money legalized this is got to stop politicians are also a big part of it

  10. Another feature in the Constitutional Law rules are, anyone in government who wages War from within the United States is guilty of TREASON.

    1. Treason carries the “DEATH Penalty if convicted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Time to re-instate the Death Penalty….

      1. When is this going to happen? These people have been committing treason and disregarding our constitution for a long time. We the people have a running joke that if your a Democrat you won’t be punished.

  11. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ended the Mexican War 1848. Mexico needs to teach there kids that they don’t own any part of The United States. The young people of Mexico THINK they still own the United States. NO, WE THE PEOPLE WILL LET THEM KNOW, THAT THEY MUST GO THROUGH A PROCESS INCLUDING, HAVING A TRADE SO THEY CAN WORK IN THE UNITED STATES. NO YOU CANNOT GET EVERYTHING FREE. HOW STUPID.

    1. The flow of Mexicans into Ca is Mexico’s way of taking back the state! Read the Book ( Take Over by Invasion!)

        1. As a Republican in California, I take umbrage with your comment. My family has been here 10 generations, back to the San Juan Capistrano Mission. What they have done to MY state is horrific, but I want it cleaned out, not thrown away. I don’t want to have to leave but it is getting more and more ridiculous! There are a lot more conservative people in this state, but we have been silenced thru voter fraud & dirty politics. Keep calling your senators & congress persons until you can get through & voice your disgust with these “policies”!

    2. James Mitchner wrote a novel titled TEXAS, in which he predicts the Mexicans and other south of the border Hispanics will reclaim the territory they ceded in 1848 by overwhelming immigration that will change the color, language and culture of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California into a very Hispanic dominated territory. How clairvoyant he was writing in the 1960’s. Whodda thought???
