$22 Million Worth of Cocaine Confiscated by Border Patrol; Suspects Flee to Mexico Across Open Border

Nothing to see here.

Thursday, Border Patrol agents confiscated 700 pounds of cocaine near Brownsville, Texas, along the U.S. southern border with Mexico where there is no physical barrier halting illegal entry.

“Customs and Border Protection said the suspects were seen loading ‘bundles of narcotics’ into an off-road-style utility vehicle outside of Garciasville, a city in Texas up against the river,” according to a Washington Examiner report. “The suspects, apparently aware they had been seen, were able to ‘abruptly’ drive the vehicle into the river and escape into Mexico, CBP said.”

The cocaine had a street value of $22.5 million, according to the report.

If only there was some sort of barrier that could be erected in such places along the southern border to impede the flow of such undesirables from entering our nation with impunity. Oh wait. There is. It’s called a border wall, and President Donald J. Trump has been fighting like hell to have one built.

Without obstruction from Democrats, the party of violent crime and insane immigration policy, the United States might be able to secure its borders, like every other civilized nation on earth. Instead, the federal government shutdown drags on as the political left refuses to give Trump a win, regardless of whether that win would be good for the American people.

“Walls don’t work,” they say, as if you are stupid enough to believe that.

But walls do work. Case in point, see the Washington Examiner story. Would those illegals have been able to drive through a concrete or steel barrier to deliver their shipment of cocaine? Obviously not.

“705 lbs. of cocaine, caltrops, evidence of sophisticated counter surveillance and a splashdown in one encounter are an obvious reminder of the need for more personnel, technology, and infrastructure in the Rio Grande Valley,” acting Chief Patrol Agent Raul Ortiz said, according to the report. “Transnational Criminal Organizations continue to exploit areas along our western corridor that accounts for more than 90 percent of our traffic.”

When will the Democrats stop playing games with border security?

LOL: Ignorant Blue Checks on Twitter Get Confused After President Trump’s Remark That ‘Coyotes’ are Smuggling Children Across the Border

These people know nothing that is true.

After President Donald Trump remarked that “coyotes” are smuggling children across the U.S. southern border in yesterday’s presidential debate, verified liberals on Twitter demonstrated their extreme ignorance when it comes to the immigration issue.

Some of the low lights from these clueless Democrats can be seen here:

Alleged high school shooting victim and gun control spokesman David Hogg showed his lack of basic intelligence on the issue as well:

The incredible ignorance from the Left on the true nature of illegal immigration has resulted in their support for some of the most ghastly and inhumane policies imaginable.

Big League Politics reported on how CBS News painted human traffickers in a positive light because they were flooding the border as part of a planned and well-financed migrant caravan last year:

The Darién Gap, a undeveloped jungle swampland connecting North and South America at the border of Panama and Colombia, is said to be one of the most dangerous places in the Americas. It’s largely overrun by human smugglers, paramilitary organizations, and drug traffickers, and the U.S State Department advises Americans not to travel to the region.

The region’s criminal reputation didn’t stop CBS News from running a sympathetic profile of some of the human smugglers operating in the area on Saturday. CBS’s portrayal of a ‘coyote’ named Emerson Gonzalez Jimenez was unquestioning of his claims that he was offering a generous service to the migrants who sought passage through the Darien Gap to Panama, usually on the way to the United States.

Colombians, Venezuelans, Haitians and even individuals from Asia or Africa commonly hire the services of the smugglers to navigate through the dangerous region. It’s not uncommon for migrants to die during the often-perilous journey, as the Gap poses a threat on account of its wild nature and the criminals known to operate within it.

A Marxist terrorist organization known as FARC, the Spanish-language synonym for Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, has extensively operated in the area. FARC has trafficked and sold a great deal of cocaine destined for the United States, in addition to waging a violent insurgency against the government of Colombia.

The crossing of often helpless and penniless migrants through the Darién Gap poses a humanitarian concern. Migrants are largely powerless at the hands of the coyotes guiding them, and can be easily exploited. Female migrants are often raped or forced into prostitution by smugglers.

Closing the borders would not only keep Americans safe, but it would also stop human trafficking networks from smuggling exploited children across the border.
