Agents SEIZE Massive Shipment – Countless Lives May Have Been Saved
(ConservativeHub.com) – US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced on July 11 that it had seized over $600,000 worth of cocaine from a truck on July 7. The 1997 Freightliner claimed it was hauling juice from across the border. However, when patrol agents referred it for an inspection with a canine, they discovered 87 pounds of the drug in the tires of the trailer.
The CBP noted agents used technology combined with training to detect the concealed narcotics. If sold on the street, the drugs would have brought in $671,160. Special agents within the agency continue to investigate the incident.

Officials encountered the truck at the World Trade Bridge in Laredo, Texas. It represents just one of the many busts occurring recently along the border. The White House has received criticism for allowing out-of-control drug trafficking to continue.
Critics say Biden’s relaxed immigration policies easily open the door for drugs to enter the US. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) calls the situation the “Biden border crisis.” He passed legislation in his state to combat smuggling in June.
In the June United States Senate Committee of Foreign Relations Minority Report, GOP senators said that criminal organizations use weak borders to move drugs, and the Biden administration needs to act immediately to combat these criminals. They categorized the situation as a “grave threat” to US security.
