On June 18, 2018, Patricia Calderon-Monarrez, 47, of Sinaloa, Mexico, was sentenced to a mere 60 months in prison after pleading guilty to possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Calderon-Monarrez does not have legal status in the United States and is subject to removal from the United States when she is released from prison.

On Oct. 5, 2017, federal agents approached Calderon-Monarrez in a parking lot while conducting an investigation into a Phoenix-based drug trafficking organization. A subsequent search of Calderon-Monarrez revealed a loaded firearm and ammunition in her purse. When agents searched the vehicle Calderon-Monarrez arrived in, they located more than 20 pounds of methamphetamine with a street value of more than $500,000, multiple brick-shaped packages containing more than nine pounds of cocaine with a street value of almost $100,000, and a backpack containing more than $64,000 in cash.

    Patricia Calderon-Monarrez, 47, of Sinaloa, Mexico is a one women walking crime wave.
    Obviously she’s clearly just another poor immigrant desperately seeking a better life. A women who just wants to make a better life for herself and her family, as a drug dealer peddeling poison to our youth.
    Or is she more realistically the poster child of the title wave of criminal aliens violating our laws the second they step foot on US soil who once here set up shop as a criminal enterprise.
    A criminal alien walking around with a loaded firearm, 20+ pounds of methamphetamine nine pounds of cocaine and a backpack containing with $64,000 in drug proceeds and she only gets 5 years?
    I’m sure had she been a real citizen, she would have received a harsher sentence.

  2. These international narco-terrorist cartels are running the Mexican govt. Look at how their politicians talk (every level). The cartel money making machine is destroying American while being helped by corporations and the rich Americans. The corrupt and bought off American politicians should be jailed. We dont need a wall along Canada because they do not have cartels…… BUILD THE BUILD AND MAKE MEXICO PAY FOR IT.
