A new report is out that really makes the case for the Great Wall of Trump. As the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard reports:
Over 99 percent of all marijuana and methamphetamine seized at U.S. borders has come from Mexico, a colossal cache of 8.2 million pounds since 2012 and a demonstration of the efforts by drug cartels to feed America’s habit, one that is leading to increasing deaths, according to a new report.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection seizure figures show that in 2015, 99.8 percent of methamphetamine and 99.9 percent of marijuana seized in the U.S. came from the southern border. Another 61 percent of cocaine seizures were on the West Coast, mostly California, suggesting that Colombian drug cartels are looking for a new route in, according to a new report.
According to a new project from DrugAbuse.com, Border Patrol officers seized a staggering 1.5 million pounds of drugs last year. The report was provided to Secrets.
Whether or not it hampers the flow of people or drugs at all, the message is clear. There’s a preferred path for drugs and people to enter this country, and it’s through our porous border with Mexico.
