Staggering 6.5 Tons Of Meth Seized At Eagle Pass

The epicenter for President Joe Biden’s failed immigration policy is now the site of the largest drug bust in Customs and Border Protection history. Eagle Pass, Texas, was the entry point for a stunning 6.5 tons of methamphetamine from Mexico aimed at American citizens.

This seizure marked the largest drug interdiction the agency ever secured in a single action involving a port of entry. A canine inspection of a tractor trailer at the Camino Real International Bridge uncovered the haul.

The rig was believed to be hauling a drying agent for piglets. Instead, agents secured 13,101 pounds of meth.

Laredo Field Office Field Operations Director Donald Kusser noted the massive takedown “uniquely illustrates the serious narcotics threat our officers face on a daily basis and their effectiveness” in countering the drug flow into the nation.

The massive border seizure hardly took place in a vacuum.

It came in the aftermath of the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. The official was accused of neglecting his duty to control the nation’s borders and lax enforcement of existing laws.

It also coincided with President Joe Biden facing enormous pressure over incredibly weak border security.

The president is considering executive action to clamp down on illegal entry into the country. This would certainly be a first for his embattled administration.

Despite this week’s massive haul and Biden’s growing desperation, he received strong pushback from within his own party over plans to supposedly attempt to secure the southern border.

Radical “Squad” member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) this week blasted any effort to exercise executive action to stem the border invasion.

The left-winger posted on X, formerly Twitter, “Doing Trump impressions isn’t how we beat Trump. Seeking asylum is a legal right for all people. In the face of authoritarian threat, we should not buckle our principles — we should commit to them.”

Ocasio-Cortez did not comment on the massive drug bust, but only added that Biden should refuse the “outrageous” suggestion to control the border.

Republicans are also skeptical of the president’s intentions. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) called on the White House to reinstate Trump’s successful “Remain in Mexico” policy and end the porous parole system.
