News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Border Patrol Seizes Heroin Valued at More Than $1 Million

Monday, April 14, 2008

Temecula, Calif. — Border Patrol agents arrested the driver of a Ford Expedition for smuggling 12.9 pounds of heroin on Saturday morning after a traffic stop on northbound Interstate 15 in Temecula.

A Border Patrol canine alert on the Ford Expedition prompted agents to conduct a search of the vehicle. The agents then found eight packages of brown heroin hidden inside a modified compartment underneath the vehicle’s center console. The estimated value of the heroin is $1,032,600.

Agents relinquished the suspected drug smuggler and the illicit narcotics to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The primary objective of the Border Patrol is to apprehend terrorists and terrorist weapons illegally entering the United States. Another key component of the National Border Patrol Strategy is to detect, apprehend, and deter smugglers of humans, drugs, and other contraband.
