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?

Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
