CBP Agents Seize $1.9M Worth Of Meth, Heroin, Cocaine & Fentanyl At AZ PoE

Published

on

The flow of poison coming into the U.S. from Mexican cartels continues. A little over a week ago CBP seized $1.6 million worth of heroin, cocaine, & amphetamine at a Texas border crossing point. A week before that CBP seized $1,150,000 worth of heroin and cocaine that officers discovered within a commercial truck arriving from Mexico. A few days ago, CBP foiled an attempt to smuggle almost $700,000 worth of cocaine into Texas, also. This is why we need more wall, and more Border Patrol agents.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports:

“TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations, officers at the Port of Nogales seized more than 515 pounds of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and fentanyl over the past 5 days. 11 U.S. citizens and a Mexican national are in custody for their connection to the drug seizures.

Several of the most significant seizures include the following;

Early Friday morning, officers at the Dennis DeConcini Crossing referred a 47-year-old female for further inspection of her Ford sedan when she attempted to enter the U.S. After a CBP narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of a scent it was trained to detect, officers removed more than 120 packages from throughout the vehicle. The packages, which were determined to be methamphetamine, weighed 123 pounds, with an estimated value of worth nearly $111,000.

A short time later, officers at the DeConcini Crossing referred a 38-year-old man for an additional search of his Jeep SUV as he attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico. An alert by a CBP canine to the right rear side of the vehicle, led officers to remove 40 packages of meth, which weighed nearly 44 pounds, with an estimated value of more than $39,000.

That afternoon, officers at the DeConcini Crossing referred a 19-year-old woman for further inspection of her Chevy SUV, when she attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico. A canine alert led officers to the discovery of more than 30 packages of heroin, within the doors of the vehicle. The drugs weighed almost 87 pounds, with an estimated value of more than $989,000.

Monday morning, a 30-year-old Tucson woman was referred for a secondary inspection of her Nissan sedan, as she attempted to cross back into the U.S. from Mexico. A canine alert led officers to beneath the seats, where they removed nearly 50 packages of drugs. Five of the packages contained almost 13 pounds of fentanyl, worth nearly $137,000. Three of the packages contained more than five pounds of heroin, worth over $61,000. And the balance of the packages were identified as nearly 41 pounds of meth, worth near $37,000.

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.”

Federal Judge Rips IBWC During Hearing Over Construction Of Our Second Border Wall

Published

on

...

* By

The International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC) has made it clear that they don’t like us, or that we’re securing our border by building walls. The IBWC is half controlled by Mexico. We have to get permission from them to build if we construct the wall near any waterways connected to Mexico. They’re making us jump through hoops that they haven’t made anyone else jump through. The federal judge ripped into them for that today. If you recall, the IBWC tried to stop us from building a gate at our first border wall in New Mexico because it ended at a dam on the Rio Grande River. We got the job done, though. This case will end the same way. We’ll get our wall in Texas built!

“McAllen, Texas — Despite District Court Judge Randy Crane’s befuddlement over the International Boundary and Water Commission’s (IBWC) treatment of Fisher Industries, contracted by non-profit We Build The Wall to construct a border barrier in Mission, TX in the Rio Grande Valley, the group still won’t be able to build for at least another week.

“I’m concerned that different people are being treated differently,” Crane said to Dr. Padinare Unnikrishna, the IBWC’s Chief of Engineering Services.

Unnikrishna testified for the federal government against Fisher Industries Friday in a hearing that was supposed to decide whether a previous injunction levied by the court would be lifted, allowing the group to build a crucial 3.5 miles of border wall in an area highly trafficked by cartel members and illegal border crossers. The venue for the hearing is the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

Despite Fisher Industries’ compliance with every demand made by the IBWC, and the fact that the IBWC appears to be putting Fisher Industries through the ringer, the court was still bound by The Treaty of Nov. 23, 1970, which gave power to the IBWC to make the final say on who and what can be built in flood plain areas of the Rio Grande Valley.

After coddling by the federal government’s attorneys, Unnikrishna was torn to shreds by Fisher Industries’ lawyers, and eventually Judge Crane himself. Two main topics were at issue: why Fisher Industries was required to provide 1D and 2D environmental impact models for the IBWC to examine when other private organizations have not had to jump through such hoops, and why the IBWC seemingly delayed notifying Fisher Industries of those requirements for more than one month.

“No private organization has ever been required to [provide 1D and 2D models to the IWBC], to the best of your knowledge?” Crane asked Unnikrishna incredulously.

Unnikrishna couldn’t point to a single example, though he said it was common for government organizations like U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to provide such information to the IBWC.

Crane pushed, demanding to know what guidelines the IBWC uses to decide what environmental modeling it requires of builders in flood plain areas. He asked about a local shopping mall, which apparently did not have to provide 2D modeling to the IBWC. Then he asked about local residents who build structures or fences on their own property, and whether they had to provide such environmental impact modeling to the organization. Unnikrishna couldn’t define the parameters, eventually agreeing that he does not know “where the line is drawn” by the IBWC.

Intermittently, Crane questioned Unnikrishna about his dealings with Fisher Industries.

Fisher Industries met with the IBWC in El Paso, TX, on Oct. 3, to discuss proposals for a border barrier at the current job site. It wasn’t until more than a month later, in mid-November, that the IBWC told Fisher Industries it would have to provide them with the environmental impact modeling. By that time, land was already being cleared, and the federal government sought an injunction against Fisher Industries and We Build The Wall. The latter organization was eventually dropped as a defendant in the case. Judge Crane seemed perturbed, noting that Unnikrishna and the IBWC likely knew Fisher Industries’ intentions to build a bollard wall on the land, and thus should have informed them of the requirements to build such a structure.

The totality of the testimony was quite suggestive, painting the picture that the IBWC might intentionally be building its own barriers to purposefully slow or halt Fisher Industries’ progress on securing the border at its current job site.

Judge Crane called it a potential due process issue, but was forced to defer to the Treaty, which only allows for building in flood plain arears once the IBWC signs a letter saying building is permitted. After a half-hour recess during which attorneys for all parties were called to Crane’s chambers, Fisher Industries decided to save its witnesses for a continuance hearing next Thursday. The temporary restraining order was upheld, though some land-clearing orders were modified.

The IWBC, which is half-controlled by Mexico, and half-controlled by the United States, has not exactly been friendly to Fisher Industries or We Build The Wall. Combined with the local social justice brigade, the private organizations looking to close the border for the good of the American people have been met with stiff resistance.

Also party to the lawsuit are the National Butterfly Center (NBC), a nature preserve run by an avid leftist by the name of Marianna Trevino Wright, and a second private company, Neuhaus & Sons. Part of the North American Butterfly Association, NBC owns property near Fisher Industries’ worksite, which is on land owned by Neuhaus & Sons. It is concerned with the environmental impact that a wall would potentially cause, and Friday called a witness to testify about those concerns.”
