Attorney General William Barr and the Department of Justice have been very busy lately cleaning up the D.C. swamp and bringing down major criminals all over the world.
While he’s also playing a big role in the investigation into the origins of the Russia investigation, Barr announced this week that the Department of Justice successfully carried out one of the “largest bust ever” of its kind.
During a press conference Tuesday in New Mexico, Barr announced that nearly 330 fugitives wanted for violent crimes were arrested as part of an initiative called “Operation Triple Beam.”
“Part of the violence we see — part of the problem that is driving violent crime — is the narcotics problem,” Barr said. “And while we have a national opioid problem, we also have a very serious increase in methamphetamine that is being produced and distributed from Mexico.”
Barr smacked down attempts from reporters to downplay the historic operation by asking about issues facing the president back in Washington.
“I’m not going to talk about what’s going on inside the Beltway and some of the shenanigans that are going on these days,” the attorney general said. “I’m really here to talk about crime, which I think is a very important issue for the American people and especially for the people of New Mexico.”
A statement issued by the DOJ described Operation Triple Beam as “a large-scale, 90-day law enforcement operation” targeting “known violent offenders.”
It was “led by the U.S. Marshals Southwest Investigative Fugitive Team” and involved “multiple federal, state and local law enforcement agencies,” the statement said.
Barr is quoted by the DOJ as saying he was proud of law enforcement officials and their “outstanding execution” of the operation.
“I commend the work of the brave men and women of the U.S. Marshals Service on their outstanding execution of Operation Triple Beam, a nationwide effort by the Marshals to target violent, gang-related crime in some of America’s most dangerous cities,” Barr said.
Barr added: “The Marshals are truly America’s fugitive hunters, with a proud tradition dating back to the founding of the United States. Their unyielding commitment to justice, in partnership with our state and local colleagues, made this initiative a great success.”
This is the second historic bust by Barr’s DOJ in less than a month.
The AG announced a few weeks ago that the DOJ, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Department of Homeland Security arrested 337 criminals in the “largest bust ever” regarding child sex predators.
The massive coordinated operation successfully took down Jong Woo Son, a South Korean national, who was indicted by a federal grand jury in the District of Columbia for his operation of Welcome To Video, the largest child sexual exploitation market by volume of content.
The nine-count indictment reveals that Son was also charged and convicted in South Korea and is currently in custody serving his sentence in South Korea.
An additional 337 site users have been arrested and charged.
This was a massive operation to capture hundreds of sick people who took part in children being sexually assaulted, abused, and exploited online.
Many of the 337 site users lived in the United States, with others living in different countries across the world.
With all of this considered, keep in mind that Democrats want to abolish ICE and the Department of Homeland Security — who played a major role in helping save countless children from being abused and exploited online.
