In the war on drugs and combatting human trafficking, the creativity of criminals is becoming increasingly difficult for border patrol agents to navigate. In a recent seizure, K9 units at the Otay Mesa border crossing between Tijuana and San Diego found a stash of methamphetamines disguised as onions.

“This was not only a clever attempt to try and smuggle in narcotics, one I haven’t seen before, but also time consuming to wrap narcotics into these small packages, designed to look like onions,” said Sidney Aki, the Director of Field Operations in San Diego for US Customs and Border Protection.

“While we have certainly seen narcotics in produce before, it’s unusual for us to see this level of detail in the concealment,” said Aki.

The attempted smuggler was a 46-year-old citizen of Mexico. He was arrested before being handed over to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

The New York Post reports, “the 1,197 packages of methamphetamines, packed among real onions in the back of a tractor-trailer, were shaped into small globes with a white covering, weighing 1,336 pounds and valued at $2.9 million.”

    So, a LITTLE meth was sacrificed. Another 20 MILLIONS found their way in the country at another post!
    Relentless they are, because the drugs are requested!
    And the CIA, the FBI, are needing the cash to brake all laws concerning what the citizens are doing!
    GOTTA SPY on the People!

    If all this inventivity and creativity were used in a good sense instead of an evil one, if the hackers and those creating viruses infecting the Internet (and the humanity) were using their abilities in a positive way the world could be a better place. If narcos, hackers and other Faucis (add to my list Putin, the kipa-gang, the pedophiles, etc) were eliminated by death penalty the world could be a better place… But it is useless to mention the 46 yo mexican and say nothing about those being up and down stream.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
