Drug trafficking has gotten creative in recent years — from lining the bottom of a car, stuffing drugs up the exhaust pipe, to even filling the gas tank — but it comes as a surprise when a drug transport involves a six-year-old girl.

A U.S. Border Patrol agent pulled a car over on Interstate 5 on the evening of July 21. After agreeing to a search, the mother was soon discovered, by a police K-9, to be carrying 28.8 pounds of methamphetamine — with her young child in the vehicle.

28 bundles of meth were found inside the car’s gas tank and the mother was turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Her young daughter was handed over to local child protective services.

The vehicle was seized by the U.S. Border Patrol.

Canadian-U.S. border illegal crossings up 240% over previous year

The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.

According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.

ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.

Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries. 

Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.

Surprisingly, ADN reports:

A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.

Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
