Arizona border agents seize absurd amount of deadly drugs

by ian

Arizona border officials continue to seize “record-breaking” amounts of fentanyl and methamphetamine, weapons, and ammunition.

Just the News reports that border officials are confiscating these items at the Mariposa Port of Entry in Arizona. US Customs and Border Protection agents seized over 3 million fentanyl pills in one load this past month, drugs that could’ve killed millions of people.

In two other outbound operations, officials seized over 70,000 rounds of ammunition, various weapons, and 18 magazines. Mariposa Nogales Port Director Michael Humphries said that the “large amount of munitions was most likely going to supply and support cartel operations” in Mexico.

This comes as border patrol agents have arrested a record number of illegal immigrants in the past two years. Both this year and last year, border patrol agents have arrested around 29,000 illegal border crossers.
