CBP date rape drugs

Last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Louisville, Kentucky seized 46 pounds of what are commonly referred to as “date rape drugs” in a package originating from China.

The illicit package was destined for Los Angeles, California before CBP intercepted it, and it included two jugs containing 23.5 pounds of Gamma-Butyrolactone (GBL) and 22.9 pounds of 1,4-Butanediol, according to a CBP press release.

“These chemicals are very dangerous,” Thomas Mahn, Port Director, Louisville, said in a statement. “Our officers see shipments like this every night, and every night they stop these dangerous products from reaching its final destination. Our officers do an outstanding job of keeping us safe.”

The DEA classifies GBL as a List I chemical under the Controlled Substances Act, which means it’s regulated as an addictive narcotic.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol data Border Patrol agents detained over 30,000 Chinese individuals for illegally crossing the border from January to November 2023, sparking concern.

Just The News reports that National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd on Wednesday said the United States should be incredibly concerned by the influx of military-aged Chinese men coming across the southern border.

“Why are we seeing this influx?” Judd asked on the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “At best, they’re just coming here for a better life or for a better job. At worse, they’re coming here to be part of the Chinese government, and that’s what scares me an awful lot.”

“We know that the Chinese have huge gangs here in the United States, and they control certain parts of our country,” he later said. “They control the drug flow. They control the prostitution. They control everything that’s illegal in certain portions of the country. We have to look into that. It’s very important that we understand why we are having so many people from China, especially military-aged men, from China.”

“I don’t want to cause mass hysteria where United States citizens are violent towards people from China,” Judd said. “However, we have to … allow the intelligence community to do their job. We’ve got to let law enforcement do their job and look into these individuals.”

Many Chinese immigrants are leaving due to economic conditions in China and its strict lockdowns, Yahoo News reported.

“Again, at best, they’re here for a better life,” Judd said. “At worst, they’re here to be part of the Chinese government to infiltrate our own country.”
