Two Mexican nationals living in Tyler, Texas, have been sentenced to federal prison for drug trafficking violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.

Jose Ruben Vaca-Saucedo, 26, pleaded guilty on Mar. 4, 2013, to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and was sentenced to 80 months in federal prison today by U.S. District Judge Leonard E. Davis. The court also ordered the defendant to submit to forfeiture of $10,000.

Vaca-Saucedo’s brother, Juan Carlos Vaca, 28, pleaded guilty on Mar. 4, 2013, to distribution of methamphetamine and was sentenced to 57 months in federal prison today by Judge Davis. Vaca was ordered to submit to forfeiture of $2,600.

According to information presented in court, from May 2010 to January 2011, the brothers conspired to possess more than 182 grams of methamphetamine which they intended to deliver to others in the Tyler, Texas area. A federal grand jury returned an indictment on Feb. 1, 2012, charging the brothers with drug trafficking violations.

This case is the result of an ongoing Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) joint investigation. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering organizations, and those primarily responsible for the nation’s illegal drug supply.

They should deport the High wig roaches from captial hill...

Suzukirider1960 has got a good point. Are they also illegals? Is this part of the immigration reform program. How many more of these cockroachs are here and must be terminated? We now have them locked up so they can learn more about the amerian criminal acts. Take them to arizona desert tent city. Let them eat garbage and enjoy the weather. Cock roachs from mexico, americas number one threat and enemy.

Not much of a sentence for basically killing our youth for profit, they give stiffer sentences than that to DWI offenders. Bet they were not even legal citizens either.

Notice how KETK follows the "new" media directive to identify Illegal Aliens as Mexican Nationals. It sounds so much better don't you think comrade? While NSA, FBI, CIA all target the American citizen for investigation and suspicion, illegals are hardly of concern.
