Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas visited the United States/Mexico border in Yuma, Arizona on Wednesday, before then heading to Texas. Sara Carter, who has many sources in the area was provided proof that Mayorkas’ visit is nothing more than “smoke and mirrors.”

Mayorkas met with Customs and Border Protection employees Wednesday morning and then local leaders in the afternoon. Mayorkas told Yuma’s news outlet KYMA he was focused on public safety as well as plans to continue the ‘Remain in Mexico Program’ in partnership with Mexico.

However, insiders say the processing center was emptied overnight before Mayorkas arrived. Carter tweeted exclusive intel she received from sources regarding Mayorkas’ trip:

“EXCLUSIVE: According to sources in #YUMA the sector’s Centralized Processing Center (CPC) was emptied of people overnight before @DHSgov Secretary Mayorkas. ‘There were two brazen load-ups along the Colorado River that went unanswered due to no agent to respond.’ Why? If the CPC was empty why was there no agent available to respond? BP Agents are being stopped from doing their job and protecting the nation #BidensBorderCrisis it’s all smoke and mirrors.”

    The Democrat Party’s formula is simple:
    American tax-dollars* + Open-borders** – Voter-ID = Illegal-votes = Political-power.
    * American tax-payer be damned.
    ** American security be damned.

    So, do you mind giving us a few more details like why was it emptied Was it to try to trick us into believing ‘illegal aliens’ weren’t coming to invade our country??
    Or, a dirty trick being played on our border agents – like they weren’t anywhere to be seen – to do their jobs??

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Otay Mesa Commercial Facility discovered $18 million dollars’ worth of methamphetamine hidden within a shipment of squash.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) revealed in a press release on Monday, at approximately 6:47 a.m.,that CBP officers encountered a 44-year-old male driving a commercial tractor-trailer with a shipment manifested for squash. The driver, a valid border crossing card holder, was referred for further examination by CBP officers along with the tractor-trailer and shipment.

Non-intrusive scanning technology was utilized to conduct a full scan of the tractor trailer which showed irregularities and CBP officers requested a CBP human and narcotics detection canine. The canine team responded and alerted officers to the presence of narcotics.

A total of 1,419 packages concealed within the shipment of squash was discovered and extracted. The narcotics were tested and identified as methamphetamine with a total weight of 11,469 pounds with an estimated street value of $18,350,400.

“Our officers’ commitment to duty, excellence, and the safety of our nation is truly commendable. These results serve as an outstanding display of effectiveness in thwarting the illegal importation of narcotics,” stated Rosa E. Hernandez, Otay Mesa Area Port Director. “Their exceptional efforts truly embody the highest standards of service.”

The seizures are part of Operation Apollo, a holistic counter-fentanyl effort that began on October 26, 2023 in southern California, and expanded to Arizona on April 10, 2024, the CBP release reveals. Operation Apollo focuses on intelligence collection and partnerships, and utilizes local CBP field assets augmented by federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners to boost resources, increase collaboration, and target the smuggling of fentanyl into the United States.

The CDC states that more than 150 people die every day from drug overdoses related to synthetic opioids derived from fentanyl.
