TUCSON, Ariz. – Office of Field Operations officers at the Port of Nogales seized cocaine, Fentanyl, Heroin, and Methamphetamine and arrested six individuals for attempted drug smuggling during the weekend.

On Friday night, CBP officers at the Dennis DeConcini Crossing referred a 28-year-old Tucson woman for further inspection when she attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico through a pedestrian lane. Officers searched the woman and discovered one package of fentanyl hidden internally, weighing more than half a pound. The drugs are worth an estimated $7,200.

Minutes earlier, officers at the Mariposa Crossing encountered a 29-year-old Mexican national and referred him and his vehicle for inspection. During the search, the man was found to have approximately 23 pounds of methamphetamine, 7 pounds of cocaine, 2 pounds of heroin, and more than one pound of fentanyl hidden in the speaker box of his Chevy truck. The drugs have an estimated value of $600,000.

Earlier that same night, CBP officers referred a 29-year-old Mexican woman and her female passenger, also a Mexican national, for inspection. After a canine alerted to the Ford sedan she was driving, officers discovered nearly 10 packages of cocaine in the fuel tank, weighing almost 25 pounds. The drugs are worth approximately $600,000.

On Saturday evening, CBP officers referred a 37-year-old Mexican national for secondary inspection when he attempted to enter the U.S. through the Mariposa Crossing. A combination of drugs were located beneath the rear seats during the inspection. The drugs were identified as nearly 74 pounds of heroin and 50 pounds of fentanyl. The seizure is worth more than $2.6 million.

Sunday, a 17-year-old attempted to enter the U.S. through the DeConcini Pedestrian Crossing. Officers referred him in for further inspection and discovered two heroin packages taped to his thighs weighing nearly a pound and a half. The drugs are worth almost $40,000.

Officers seized the drugs and vehicles. The subjects were arrested and then turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and Drug Enforcement Agency.

Supreme Court Turns Away Environmentalists Trying To Stop Border Wall Construction

Published

Another victory for national security & the border wall. This will help us as we continue the construction of our next projects if environmentalists come after us as they did at Project 2.

“The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from a coalition of environmental groups that pushed back against the Trump administration’s construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The groups, led by the Center for Biological Diversity, challenged a 1996 law giving the president authority to fight illegal immigration and border crossings, and limiting some legal challenges.

The coalition claimed that the Trump administration did not conduct sufficient environmental impact studies for the construction and that endangered species like the jaguar and Mexican wolf would be adversely affected by the barrier.

They had asserted in their case that the law’s allowance for the secretary of Homeland Security to waive any laws necessary to allow the quick construction of border fencing violates the Constitution’s separation of powers. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals had dismissed the case, citing a prior case from 2007 with “a nearly identical context.”

“This Court finds that precedent persuasive, and it compels the conclusion that Plaintiffs’ complaint fails to state plausible constitutional claims as a matter of law,” the Circuit Court’s ruling said.”
