For years, #Mexico has been learning how to influence American politicians increasing sophistication. Their #1 tool for influencing politics in the U.S. is money, and with their experience in the drug trade, Mexican PRI "dinosaurs" were the architects of methods being used today
to move vast sums of cash in to the American political apparatus. Those who understand the nature of Hispanic American families are aware that Mexican Americans frequently travel to Mexico to visit "friends and family." Such trips are made as often as every week or every
few weeks. What Americans may not be aware of however is that in recent years, Mexican Americans have been tasked with a new kind of duty: To bring cash BACK in to the United States, from Mexico. Sound ridiculous? It's not.
Ask any Mexican American person you know. Anonymous cash courier jobs are widely available to those who frequently travel between Mexico and the U.S.

And so while Customs and Border officials used to see cash traveling south of the border as proceeds from the drug trade
were being moved TO Mexico...they are now seeing a spike in the number of incidents where individuals with bundles of cash are being caught crossing the border from Mexico in to the United States.
Funds transfers are also being made by means of Latin America's new favorite tool: Crypto currencies. Larger transfers are made through international venues such as the Cayman Islands, Liechtenstein, St. Kitts, and increasingly, the Philippines. Once funds are moved in to the
U.S., they are distributed to individuals who act as intermediaries for moving what appear to be legitimate funds on the surface, to political interests. These complicated schemes are justified and take on many names inside today's Democratic Party,
where a favorite line has been heard by Democratic candidates for office in recent years: "I don't want to know where it [the money] comes from."

Yep. It's that simple. You will hear top Democrats saying it again and again in recent years: "I don't want to know."
And while the schemes are justified with many different explanations and descriptions, federal authorities have a simple term for such tactics that have unfortunately are so well known by Mexican political operators:

Money laundering.
Welcome to the new United States Democratic Party, working like never before in partnership with our neighbors south of the border, Mexico.
