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.

Laredo, Texas – Border Patrol agents from the Hebbronville Station seized more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana from a tractor-trailer this week.

On Saturday, June 14, agents manning the checkpoint located on Farm to Market Road 1017 conducted an immigration inspection of the driver of a 2000 Kenworth truck. A service canine alerted agents to the trailer and indicated to the presence of people or contraband.

Agents opened the trailer and found several tall foam boxes. Inside the boxes agents discovered a total of 41 cellophane-wrapped bundles containing marijuana with a total weight of 1,054.8 pounds and an estimated street value of $843,840.
