WHAT BORDER CRISIS?

Fentanyl is only responsible for over 30,000+ OVERDOSE DEATHS in the US per year, and it is COMING IN OVER OUUR SOUTHERN BORDER, in increasing frequency.


A wall FORCES SMUGGLERS into ports of entry where we can BUST THEM = COMMON SENSE.






Customs officers make largest fentanyl seizure ever at Arizona border crossing


NOGALES – Customs officers stationed at the commercial border crossing in Nogales made the largest fentanyl seizure ever recorded at any port of entry in the United States the day after President Donald Trump signed a bill putting an end to the longest government shutdown in history.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a canine officer alerted other officers to the presence of 254 pounds of fentanyl hidden inside an 18-wheeler carrying cucumbers, during a secondary inspection at the Mariposa port of entry just past noon on Saturday.

The find was made at a recognised port of entry. No wall needed.

Oh...there are no barriers at or surrounding Nogales?

There is a WALL ON EITHER SIDE OF THE PORT OF ENTRY with RAZOR WIRE.

Whats wrong with you? Your own thread cites drugs seized at a port of entry and you're saying a wall would have prevented it?
A truckload of cucumbers. Give your head a shake.

which had nothing to do with the drug bust. They found the drugs in a false compartment in the bottom of the truck, exposed by just the sort of new scanning technology that the Dem Bill would install at other POE's. Had nothing to do with anything other than better vehicular scanning technology at a POE.

It was at a border crossing, you don't really get that your statement pretty negates all your hyperbolic garbage.

BTW, I crossed the border on foot last Saturday, I really doubt that many of the screamers here have ever done that...let alone held a passport.

This is the same guy that posted an article that claimed that Melania was the first FLOTUS to visit a war zone since 1969! He will post or believe any piece of crap article that he gets from his propaganda crap sources. It is a sickness that he shares with us.

In the testimony at El Chapo's trial, it's come out that most of the smuggling is done through ports of entry because it's where you can move large amounts through regular transport. Cartels are moving large amounts of drugs, so moving it through border crossers is an ineffective way to do that and track delivery. Inspections of vehicles coming through ports of entry seems like a better way to identify and stop these types of shipments.

The cartels find it easier and cheaper to smuggle through ports of entry rather than open border land. This has been the case for years. It is a numbers game them and the numbers work better for them via roads and ports of entry.

They found it using technology at a border crossing. Exactly what democrats want to spend money on.

Trumps a ****ing moron.

How many 18-wheelers go off-road across the Rio Grande and 100 miles of desert?

So what we learn is the democratic plan of using the money Trump wants to spend on things that actually work is validated. Thanks for your support of the democrats plan.

hey guess what?

THE WALL DID NOT STOP HIM. Without technology that democrats support at borders, he would have just driven through...

Apparently you support drug smugglers, since you want to spend money on something that does not deter nor stop them, instead of on things that actually work.

It does help to not have easy ways of bypassing those ports of entry where inspections take place - but you likely knew that and simply chose to pretend otherwise.

Driven the backroads so I wouldn't get weighed...

The reason they drive across points of entry is not because of walls, but because it is hard to carry 245 pounds of fentanyl cross country.

It should also be noted that the major fentanyl threat is from China, whose supply is as much as 50 times more potent, and frequently mailed into the US. It is a major problem, and needs real solutions. A wall is not such a solution, and in fact would divert resources from solutions that would be effective.

He meant no need for any new walls away from ports of entry. Because the drugs all come thru them. There are plenty of walls where real experts in the field have recommended them. Trump knows nothing about border security and neither do you.

Walls to force traffic THROUGH PORTS OF ENTRY...OBVIOUSLY.

huge shipments would likely need to come in on a road , yes, which may equate to ports of entry.

I'm sure huge shipments are not the only drugs though.

Actually at least for purposes of seizure POE technology and the Coast Guard by far offer the best bang for the buck. Walls have virtually nothing to do with it.

The only real way to deal with this country's drug problem is at the source, which is actually here and which is addiction itself. Big Pharma, companies like Purdue are the real drug dealers. They have left the country with a massive problem while making billions of $$s.
