Narcotics Worth $10 Million Seized at U.S. Border

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) discovered and seized 854.07 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, 164.72 pounds of powdered methamphetamine, and 165.34 pounds of cocaine at the World Trade Bridge in Laredo, Texas.

The narcotics are estimated to be worth $10,298,520.

CBP found the items after bringing in a dog to inspect a 2001 Freightliner tractor-trailer.

“CBP is proud of the work our frontline officers do to ensure the safety and well-being of our communities. This significant seizure is an example of ongoing operational efforts conducted daily to protect our borders,” Port Director Alberto Flores of the Laredo Port of Entry. Director Flores stated.

The drug seizure underscores Trump’s comment that illegal immigration is “poisoning the blood of our nation.”

“Illegal immigration is poisoning the blood of our nation. They’re coming from prisons, from mental institutions, from all over the world. Without borders and fair elections, you don’t have a country. Make America great again,” Trump said.

“We must win in 2024, or we will not have a nation.”

In November 300 pounds of fentanyl were seized in Tucson, Arizona.

During that same time, over 14,000 illegal immigrants entered the United States from the area.
