A Yuma Sector Border Patrol canine uncovered almost $60,000 worth of the drugs in the backpack of a man crossing a checkpoint near Arizona, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a press release Tuesday.

Over five pounds of fentanyl, an estimated street value of nearly $60,000, were stuffed inside breakfast burritos within the suspect’s backpack.

The 37-year-old man, a legal U.S. resident, was arrested and the pills were seized from the back of his Chevy Tahoe.

Fox News identified the man as Adrian Salgado-Corona.

Customs and Border Protection told Fox News that the seizure of fentanyl comes amid an overall “increase in the seizure of drugs in the Yuma Area of Responsibility of late.”

Migrants refuse to go to Brooklyn cruise terminal shelter, return to Manhattan hotel

It’s the details bleeding heart liberals fail to think about. Take New York City as a perfect example where the liberal city cannot welcome hundreds of thousands of migrants with open arms as it says the rest of the country should do.

Last week saracarter.com reported on how the Big Apple was turning a Brooklyn Cruise ship terminal into shelter for migrant families flooding into the city. That plan has already backfired.

More than 50 migrants camped outside the Watson Hotel in Manhattan in protest against the cruise terminal. On Sunday night over a dozen police officers responded to the hotel to provide crowd control.

One activist told the New York Post that the migrants feel the shelter is “not livable” after several migrants went to the Terminal shelter over the weekend but promptly returned to the hotel.

The migrants preferred to sleep outside the hotel saying that the shelter had no heat, privacy or blankets.

The migrants hung a banner demanding permanent free housing and to “cancel rent.”

A spokesperson for Mayor Eric Adams said the city continues to “surpass our moral obligations” in caring for the influx of migrants.

“More than 42,000 asylum seekers have arrived in New York City since last spring and we continue to surpass our moral obligations as we provide asylum seekers with shelter, food, health care, education, and a host of other services,” spokesperson Fabien Levy told the New York Post.

“The facilities at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal will provide the same services as every other humanitarian relief center in the city, and the scheduled relocations to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal this weekend took place as planned,” Levy added. “We remain in serious need of support from both our state and federal governments.”
