Customs and Border Patrol agents intercepted a drug shipment that is the second-largest of its kind ever to be busted by law enforcement at a San Diego port of entry on Sunday.
A truck that was supposedly carrying medical supplies was searched at the Otay Mesa border crossing on Sunday evening. A canine alerted law enforcement to the presence of drugs when the truck was passing through the port of entry, and federal agents discovered that it was carrying a truly massive load of narcotics and drugs.
Within the truck’s freightage were 1,816 packages of criminal contraband. A CBP spokesperson informed NewsNow Las Vegas that the agency intercepted 3,014 pounds of methamphetamine, 64 pounds of heroin, 29 pounds of fentanyl powder and almost 37 pounds of fentanyl pills, worth an estimated $7.2 million.
The truck’s driver, a 47-year old Mexican national, was arrested.
DEA Special Agent in Charge John W. Callery cited the massive drug bust as an example of the dangers criminal smuggling organizations pose to the nation in a statement to Fox News. “This massive seizure is testament of what law enforcement agencies can do when we combine forces — prevent over $7 million worth of deadly drugs from entering our country, thus saving countless lives from addiction and overdose death.”
Fentanyl, which is most commonly produced in China, has been smuggled into the United States in large quantities in recent decades, fueling the opioid epidemic in communities throughout the country. The synthetic opioid is marketed to consumers seeking a cheap alternative to medical painkillers and heroin.
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:
Tonight on blue checkmark twitter, they don’t know what coyotes are.

Alleged high school shooting victim and gun control spokesman David Hogg showed his lack of basic intelligence on the issue as well:
Imagine calling the immigrant parents that bring their children to the United States for a better life “Coyotes”
The level of xenophobia is sickening.

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.
