Another day at the border, another reason to build Trump’s wall.
It was at a commercial border crossing in Nogales that a canine officer proved yet again that the United States needs a protective border wall.
While inspecting an 18-wheeler stocked with cucumbers, the crime fighting pooch signaled that there was more than vegetables on board.
Customs and Border Protection officers quickly discovered that no less that 254 pounds of the lethal drug, fentanyl, was stashed aboard.
Guadalupe Ramirez, an overseer of ALL border crossing in Arizona declared, “This is the largest fentanyl seizure in any port of entry.” He further added that, ”In CBP, in the history of CBP, this is the largest fentanyl seizure.”
The synthetic opioid is extremely powerful and deadly at even minuscule doses. The Drug Enforcement Administration deems it 80-100 times stronger than morphine.
If that wasn’t alarming enough, the transport vehicle also contained 395 pounds of methamphetamine.
Controlling ports of entry and making them the only viable place to enter the U.S. is the only way to stop such monumental shipments of narcotics from entering the country and destroying American lives.
