January 1, Cartel Targets Top US Officials: A Disturbing Revelation On Social Media



Terrell County Sheriff Thaddeus Cleveland revealed on NewsNation that cartel members have been threatening officials, including himself, via social media platforms.

During his appearance on “NewsNation Live with Marni Hughes,” Sheriff Cleveland discussed the threats he has received from cartel members who regularly check his Facebook account. The Texas sheriff has posted about his department’s work along the border, leading to messages with derogatory names and warnings that members were watching him and “his woman.”

In response to host Marni Hughes asking about his feelings on the situation, Cleveland said, “I don’t put a whole lot of worry, you know, I’m pretty secure in my faith. And I’ve taken an oath on three different occasions – first in the United States military, then as a U. S. Border Patrol agent, [and] now a sheriff. So I’m going to do what’s right for our citizens, for our nation. Regardless of what’s thrown at us, you just gotta chalk that up in the back of your mind and continue to do what you do.”

Sheriff Cleveland also mentioned that he has not coordinated with other local departments on the issue. However, he recalled his experience as a Border Patrol agent for 26 years, during which there were times when cartel members put out “a hit” on agents, as it “comes with the territory.”

When asked if the threats made him reconsider his social media postings, Cleveland responded, “You know it has. I always kinda despised social media, but when I took over as sheriff, primarily, I had to show that we had a problem here in Terrell County. Secondly, I wanted to highlight the good work that goes on by the United States Border Patrol agents here in Terrell County and along the U. S.-Mexico border. Thirdly, how we all work together, here at the sheriff’s office with the state and with our border patrol agents.”

He went on to explain that he initially blacked out faces of the illegals they caught but stopped doing so as people reached out about their missing family members.

Cartels are reportedly not only using social media for threats but also to check if their cargo has made it through the U.S. undetected by officials, according to NewsNation.

U. S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data show a massive increase in illegal crossings within the last couple of years. In December 2023, CBP recorded the highest monthly total of migrant encounters at the U.S.-Mexico border, with 302,034 encounters at both ports of entry and between ports.

    This is further proof that the Biden administration policies are failing at the border. This open border policy is ridiculous, and how many people will have to die before this administration plays hardball with the cartel? Wake up America and vote these people out of office!
