An illegal alien was arrested in Salisbury, North Carolina and charged with trafficking marijuana by possession, according to a Thursday report.
“Mario Andres Solis-Delgado, 33, was arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana by possession,” said Fox46. “Solis-Delgado indicated that he was a Mexican citizen and in the United States illegally. He was placed under a $50,000 secured bond and subsequently posted bond and was released.”
The U.S. Postal Service, working with the Rowan County, NC Sheriff’s Office, monitored suspicious packages being mailed to Solis-Delgado from California. Eight such packages were reportedly delivered to his home over the past year. They took action against Solis-Delgado last Friday.
“After a delivery of another suspicious package, investigators said they executed the search warrant and located approximately 11 pounds of high grade marijuana inside the package. The marijuana was valued at around $30,000,” the report said.
Authorities also found a .22 caliber handgun and drug paraphernalia.
Solis-Delgado’s arrest comes amid a bitter battle between Republicans and Democrats regarding border security. President Donald J. Trump has fought the open borders left tooth and nail, and appear poised to sign a budget bill Thursday that provides little money for a border wall. However, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) indicated that Trump will also declare a national emergency, signaling that he will build the wall without Congressional approval.

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.
