$22 Million Worth of Cocaine Confiscated by Border Patrol; Suspects Flee to Mexico Across Open Border

Thursday, Border Patrol agents confiscated 700 pounds of cocaine near Brownsville, Texas, along the U.S. southern border with Mexico where there is no physical barrier halting illegal entry.

“Customs and Border Protection said the suspects were seen loading ‘bundles of narcotics’ into an off-road-style utility vehicle outside of Garciasville, a city in Texas up against the river,” according to a Washington Examiner report. “The suspects, apparently aware they had been seen, were able to ‘abruptly’ drive the vehicle into the river and escape into Mexico, CBP said.”

The cocaine had a street value of $22.5 million, according to the report.

If only there was some sort of barrier that could be erected in such places along the southern border to impede the flow of such undesirables from entering our nation with impunity. Oh wait. There is. It’s called a border wall, and President Donald J. Trump has been fighting like hell to have one built.
