The United States Customs and Border Patrol made one of the largest drug busts in American history at the US-Mexico border this week; seizing enough Fentanyl to kill over 57 million people.
“We got our hands on an internal memo from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol that details this bust. The biggest fentanyl seizure in U.S. history,” said Fox Business anchor Hillary Vaughn.
“According to the memo, four days ago in Nogales, Arizona, at the port of entry, CBP officers stopped a tractor-trailer crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S. with enough fentanyl to kill 57 million people. That’s plenty of fatal dose to wipe out the entire populations of Texas, Arizona and New York state combined,” she added.
News of the seizure comes as President Trump weighs declaring a “national emergency” along the US-Mexico border; effectively bypassing Congress to fund and build his proposed border wall.

BORDER WALL NOW: Tell Congress to Fully Fund President Trump’s BORDER WALL Now
Congressional Democrats refused to budge on national security and the President’s proposed border wall this week; digging-in as countless Americans demand left-wing legislators take action and secure the United States’ southern border with Mexico.
“President Donald Trump is fighting to build a wall to keep us safe, but Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are standing in the way. Enough with the partisan games. It’s time for Congress to do its job to protect our communities and support our law enforcement,” writes Border Wall Now, a group that recently launched an online petition demanding action from our lawmakers.
“Please support President Trump’s effort to fund the wall by signing the national ‘Border Wall Now’ petition. If we want to stop the Democrats from playing politics instead of protecting Americans, we need to build a grassroots army that sends them a message,” writes the organization.

BETO’S ADMISSION: O’Rourke Says ‘I don’t Know’ How to Fix Visa Overstays
Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke continued to raise eyebrows among his Democratic colleagues this week; telling the Washington Post he “doesn’t know” how to fix blatant visa violations.
“[A recent video] noted that most undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States in the past decade came not over the border but on visas that then expired,” writes the Post.
“So what should be done to address visa overstays?” asked the newspaper.
“I don’t know,” O’Rourke fired back.

“That’s a problem when you’re like, ‘It will be a wall,’ or ‘It will be this,’ or ‘We can only do it with this,’” O’Rourke deflected. “The genius is we can nonviolently resolve our differences, though I won’t get to my version of perfect or I, working with you, will get to something better than what we have today . . . It’s rare that someone’s ever been able to impose their will unilaterally in this country. We don’t want that.”
