Democrats keep telling us we don’t need strong borders. But while President Trump has repeatedly been called “racist” for wanting to improve our border security, the men and women keeping America safe once again showed us that they are needed — by snagging a massive amount of methamphetamine intended for sale within our borders.
The bust came after Customs and Border Patrol inspected a tractor-trailer the driver says was carrying medical supplies. Instead, they found more than 3,000 pounds of meth, 64 pounds of heroin, 29 pounds of fentanyl, and 37 pounds of fentanyl pills. While some were technically medical supplies, it’s clear that none of them would be used medicinally. The drugs were found after an imaging system used by border agents detected some abnormalities. A K-9-assisted search of the car turned up the drugs. The drugs are worth an estimated $7.2 million.
“Smugglers will try every way possible to try and get their product across the border and because of the partnership between CBP, Homeland Security investigations and DEA this significant seizure occurred and we stopped them,” says San Diego acting CBP director of field operations Anne Maricich.“I’m proud of the CBP officers’ dedication to our mission; they continue to stop dangerous drugs from entering our communities.”
The driver of the vehicle was a Mexican citizen, who was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Though liberals claim that Mexican drug dealers are not bringing poison into our country, this latest incident proves that not only is it happening — but it’s a major problem.
Our border patrol is the first line of defense against dangerous people and drugs making their way into the country. While Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the Democrat Party wants to weaken our borders, this shows the danger of their open borders policies. President Trump will continue to protect us, so be sure to vote on November 3.
