Donald Trump’s Department of Justice (DOJ_ has just announced on Wednesday that more than 600 suspected drug cartel members have been arrested in what The Hill titled an “emergency operation.”
The project has been dubbed “Project Python.” And there have reportedly been 600 arrests, 350 indictments, and a huge seizure of drugs and money according to the DOJ.

The DOJ has even issued a statement revealing that the operation had a target. According to them, the target was Cártel de Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG), a notoriously brutal drug trafficking organization based in the Mexican state of Jalisco that is said to be responsible for torture and frequent massacres.
Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski said:
“Project Python marks the most comprehensive action to date in the Department of Justice’s campaign to disrupt, dismantle, and ultimately destroy CJNG – one of the highest-priority transnational organized crime threats we face.”
He then added:
“With Project Python, we are delivering results in the face of that threat for the American people.”
Trump Is Winning Against Crime
Benczkowski went on to recall the impetus for Project Python: an executive order signed by President Trump shortly after he took office in 2017.
“When President Trump signed an Executive Order prioritizing the dismantlement of transnational criminal organizations, the Department of Justice answered the call and took direct aim at CJNG,” the assistant attorney general explained.
But DEA Acting Administrator Uttam Dhillon, who was also quoted in the DOJ’s statement, promised that Project Python is “is just the beginning.”
“This strategic and coordinated project exemplifies DEA’s mission: to disrupt, dismantle, and destroy drug trafficking organizations around the world and bring their leaders to justice,” Dhillon said. “Today, DEA has disrupted CJNG’s operations, and there is more to come as DEA continues its relentless attack on this remorseless criminal organization.”
This is exactly why we elected Donald Trump to office. So that he could crack down on criminals just like he’s doing now. He’s doing a good job. And we should show him as much support as possible.
