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?

Arizona Sheriff Slams Biden’s ‘America Last’ Border Policy: “Built Roads for the Cartels”
This Arizona sheriff is witnessing the costs of an open border.
Cochise County, Arizona Sheriff Mark Dannels is slamming President Joe Biden’s America Last border and immigration policies, reporting a spike in human smuggling, drug trafficking and illegal immigration. Cochise County covers more than 80 miles of the US-Mexico border, and wall construction was occurring in the county when Joe Biden cancelled all new border wall.
Dannels pointed to the cancellation of wall construction as a factor creating security risks in itself, with more regions of the border totally unaccounted for by contractors and construction companies now absent from the scene. “We just built roads for the cartels,” he said of Biden’s wall cancellation in remarks provided to the Washington Times.
Dannels recounted the overwhelming support for a border wall among his constituents, pointing to it as an effective force in deterring criminal activity and preserving the resources of the Cochise County Sheriff’s Department.
“One area that’s wide open right now, we’re getting five to six groups a day,” he said. ”It’s almost worse than it was before. We just built them infrastructure.”
“It’s a product of politics within policing,” the sheriff said in a Fox News appearance when asked about the cancellation of wall construction. “And I’ve always said that they had no business in our business, in the business of policing what we do on this border in our communities. When President Biden rescinded the emergency order on the southwest border, it stopped resources and stopped construction on our border.”
Dannels is recounting the CCSO’s camera system detecting double the amount of illegal aliens in recent months as he saw during the Trump administration, even with border infiltration usually lower in the winter months. He’s expecting the problem to worsen, with Biden promising to enact a series of pro-migration policies in promises to the President of Mexico and Central American governments.
Dannels also is pointing to the health risks of an open border, with illegal aliens merely processed and released into American communities without so much as a COVID test.
Biden administration officials are quietly expecting a a tidal wave of illegal immigration in the spring, with border arrests at their highest levels since 2006 in February.
