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?

Federal Court Rules Trump Administration Can Withhold Grant Funding From Sanctuary Cities
If they won’t follow the law, they’re not getting DOJ funding.
In the latest in a round of policy victories for the Trump administration on immigration, a federal appeals court has ruled that the Department of Justice can block sanctuary cities from receiving federal grants on account of their failure to comply with federal immigration law.
Former Attorney Jeff Sessions announced the initiative in 2017, that restricts sanctuary cities and states such as San Francisco and Philadelphia from federal grants. The liberal local governments will be prevented from receiving funding from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program.
Predictably, liberal state and local governments turned to the court system with hopes of coercing the federal government to fund their law enforcement agencies, even as they openly refused cooperation with ICE, releasing dangerous criminal illegals onto the streets in spite of ICE requests that they instead be placed into federal custody.
After an initial victory for the sanctuary states and cities in a lower district court, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the Department of Justice does have the authority to deny federal grant funding to scofflaw cities and municipalities.
The ruling allows the DOJ to withhold grant funding not only from cities, but states that flout federal immigration law, as well. Sessions’ funding block to sanctuary entities includes six states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Virginia and Washington.
Cities that flout immigration law and cooperation with ICE won’t simply be left to their own devices, as well, even as they lose federal funding. ICE is buffing up their presence in some of America’s most flagrant sanctuary cities, bringing in an elite team of Customs and Border Patrol personnel to assist in the arrests of dangerous illegal alien criminals.
