At last! A practical move on the evil migrant drug front.

And it's wall-neutral.
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-mexico-cartels/trump-says-u-s-to-designate-mexican-drug-cartels-as-terrorists-idUSKBN1Y02NJ

There is one catch, though.
"Trump says U.S. to designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorists"

However...

"Once a particular group is designated as a terrorist organization, under U.S. law it is illegal for people in the United States to knowingly offer support and its members cannot enter the country and may be deported."

OK. So some friends and I are tokin' and chillin' to the Big Bambu when the Drug Squad comes through the door. Can we plead we didn't know that the weed came from designated-terrorist cartel?
I mean, bogarting with friends isn't "supporting" mad dog killer heavily armed kidnapping torturing mass-graving cartels, is it? Hey, I'm just an ordinary guy, you know?

Need help in advance, because I sure won't be challenging no Drug Squad.

in application nor use. The first is aimed at those who would come to US, and not citizens already here, and probably not to legal immigrants, but maybe the second. Mostly it's aimed at stopping immigrants from being approved who may have connections to drug cartels current or in past who apply to come here, or run across the border.

"under U.S. law it is illegal for people in the United States to knowingly offer support" for a terrorist organization.

Buy their product = support. Argue the semantics with your cellmate. In Egypt.
