Customs and Border Protection officers seized $933,000 in cocaine and methamphetamine at the Hidalgo and Pharr International Bridges this weekend alone.

First, officers discovered 16 packages of alleged cocaine weighing 38.97 pounds hidden in a vehicle arriving from Mexico Friday. Then on Sunday, officers discovered 40 packages of methamphetamine weighing 45.19 pounds hidden in a tractor. The tractor was also arriving from Mexico.

Port Director of the Hidalgo, Pharr and Anzalduas areas Carlos Rodriguez was grateful for the officers’ diligence.

“Drug smuggling organizations sometimes use the large volumes of traffic during holiday weekends as cover to try to sneak in narcotics,” Roriguez said in a statement Monday. “But our vigilant CBP officers intercepted these loads of cocaine and methamphetamine thanks to the great teamwork of our frontline CBP officers and their utilization of all available tools and resources.”

A little over two weeks ago, CBP confiscated a combined $3 million worth of cocaine and meth at the same port. At the time, they captured two instances of people attempting to smuggle as much as 91 pounds of cocaine and 169 pounds of meth. Canine units helped sniff out the narcotics.

As a result, all vehicles and drugs were confiscated. All four cases are still under investigation.

Sara Carter joined Steve Hilton on Fox News Sunday night to describe something so terrifying, it ‘even frightens the Democratic Party.”

People from all over the world are crossing our borders and they are not being vetted. People from “over 150 nations have already crossed this border.”

Violence is escalating on the border and Carter does not expect it to slow down. Carter adds 1.7 million migrants entered the U.S. in the last fiscal year “and being apprehended. So we expect a lot more people coming in this year.”

This is “just the first year of the Biden administration. What can happen in the next three years literally frightens me.” Carter concludes it’s so drastic, “it even frightens the Democratic Party.”
