President Donald Trump’s Border Patrol agents have had a lot of work during the holidays.
Reportedly, just during the course of one weekend, they managed to capture more than a dozen fugitives who were trying to get smuggled in. But this was not all, the agents seized a large quantity of illegal narcotics as well.
An official press release stated : “On Saturday, July 1, at approximately 10 a.m., at the Sun Ysidro port of entry, a CBP officer conducting inspections encountered a 57-year-old male Mexican citizen…
The CBP officer observed inconsistencies in the man’s story and referred him for a more intensive inspection. During the inspection, CBP officers discovered 34 pounds of cocaine hidden in the vehicles transmission. The cocaine has an estimated street value of $509,000.”
According to this, the criminal was trying to smuggle more than half a million dollars worth of drugs.
During the Obama administration, criminals like these were freely entering our country. The former president was so careless about border security that these fugitives broke the law on a daily basis.
But now, President Trump has introduced new changes to the Border Patrol that will prevent this from happening anymore and agents can once again feel that they have the authorization to do their jobs.
The press release also said that : “U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the ports of entry along the California border with Mexico over the weekend intercepted 700 pounds of narcotics valued at more than $5,2 million…From Friday, June 30, through Sunday, July 2nd, CBP officers intercepted more than 300 pounds of methamphetamine, 223 pounds of cocaine, 22 pounds of Fentanyl, 77 pounds of marijuana and more than 45 pounds of heroin.”
Luckily, Obama and his policies are now a thing of the past and Americans can get back on track with a good leader in office. President Trump and his team have their priorities straight and they care about people’s safety.
Clearing the borders will most likely be a very long and unpleasant process, but it is by all means a necessary one.
Imagine the damage these fugitives could have done if they were allowed to get into the country with all those narcotics they were carrying.
