    Default Cocaine Cowboy’ deported to Dominican Republic

    https://www.miamiherald.com/news/loc...221920385.html

    One of South Florida’s most infamous cocaine cowboys — Willie Falcon — has been deported to the Dominican Republic after his bid to stay in the United States failed following his 20-year prison sentence on a drug-related money laundering conviction. This guy is not Dominican, he is Cuban.

    So bizarre. He helped to fund anti-Castro rebels for the CIA with drug money, but seems the CIA kicked him to the curb.

    His first few months in the DR will be most interesting, indeed. I wonder who might reach out to help make a "soft landing" for this former industry rock star in our tropical paradise?

    Don't worry about this guy. He knows more people here than you can count.

    Anyone know why they deported him to DR? As opposed to Panama or Haiti, etc?

    Looks like a new Figueroa Agosto in the making to me.

    "More than 28,000 Cuban nationals convicted of felony crimes in the United States have not been deported to Cuba because the U.S. had no diplomatic relations with the Communist country until 2015. Of those Cuban felons released into U.S. society, about 2,000 were involved in murders in Florida and other states since the early 1960s, according to federal records."

    Who knew? Holy SH!T

    Wow, that the CIA does such a thing is hard to believe.
