Head of the U.S. Border Patrol, Chief Raul Ortiz tweeted he was “extremely proud” of the men and women working to protect the border after a successful three days. His agents “nabbed ten sex offenders, a slew of deadly drugs, and other illegal immigrants wanted for serious crimes in just three days” reported Fox News.

In addition, the agents rescued “nearly two dozen” migrants from danger. Specifically, Ortiz said when it comes to dangerous drugs, agents stopped 13 pounds of methamphetamine, 26 pounds of heroin and 131 pounds of fentanyl. “Fentanyl, more than 50-100 times more potent than morphine, has been blamed for the increase in overdose deaths across the country” reports Fox News.

Agents in Del Rio picked up one migrant with a prior conviction of sexual assault in Washington, and another on Wednesday who had been convicted of statutory rape. “Both had previously been deported.”

Ortiz also said agents encountered 18 large groups of migrants, totaling an overwhelming 2,446 migrants. Agents also had conducted 22 water rescues in that time period, and three agents had been assaulted while doing their job.

Fox News reports:

There were more than 234,000 migrant encounters at the southern border in April, and officials are warning that those numbers could rise as the summer months approach — despite the deadly heat many of those migrants will face.

 Numbers could rise further,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a recent video. “From confusion over recent court orders and as smugglers continue to peddle misinformation to make a profit: we are prepared.”

    Biden admin knows exactly what they’re doing. They want us all dead. Opening the borders. Disarming us. Sowing seeds of Civil dissent. The “plandemic”
    didn’t wipe out enough of us so a continual attack from outsiders will weaken our country exponentially. Folks, we are engaged in a war, and it is thrust upon us by our own government.

    With major crime already spiking just a matter of time before it goes right through the roof as over 100 countries from across the globe export their worst offenders and its finally brought home to Americans just exactly whats been going on & why. Deliberate, horrific, beyond unconscionable. What the Biden Regime has done has destabilized the country at ever level & turn. Indeed, the entire planet….. And yet they seem unconcerned, not terribly bothered about the Mid-Terms in November 2022, 2024. Why do you suppose that might be?…. Keep up the great work Sara. One of the few out there with the guts to speak up & out about it all.

    If the US survived the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the US Civil War, as well as WWI and WWII, surely the US and the American people will persevere the Brandon administration . . . unless the 2022 midterm election and the 2024 presidential election is not sound.

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.
