The Times of San Diego first reported that Enrique Morones has been “retired” from the non-profit that he founded, called the “Border Angels”, after about six months of paid leave. Morones has been building the brand “Border Angels” for more than three decades. Morones is internationally known and has appeared frequently on Fox News and other national outlets. Many will remember his appearances on the Tucker Carlson Tonight show.
It is not thought that he willingly left the Border Angels. He has not really retired, but is now trying to resurrect another nonprofit that he founded in 2005, called “Gente Unida“. Gente Unida has been inactive in recent years. Morones is trying to restart it from scratch. Gente Unida is the nonprofit that Morones claims he used in 2005 to “expose” and “shutdown” the Minutemen in California.
It appears more likely that he was forced out of Border Angels, because no reason is given and his departure does not appear to have been on friendly terms. That has provoked speculation that his unexplained departure may be due to a serious conflict with the board of the non-profit, a severe clash over direction of the nonprofit or perhaps some kind of embarrassing personal impropriety, such as financial or harassment / abuse of some kind, physical, mental or sexual. At some point, maybe the truth will emerge?
Our major local media outlets have mysteriously remained quiet about this affair, though a couple of them reported a few weeks ago that he had been quietly put on paid leave. One would think that professional journalists would be interested in a follow-up story about the fate of this international news figure, but I guess not. They have not reported that he has now been completely removed from the non-profit organization. That was only reported by the relatively minor “Times of San Diego”.
Also, see this related video. It has been shown that Morones has associated with major cartel drug smugglers.
