THIRD TIME IS THE CHARM
Why would an illegal immigrant be using the border to transport drugs? This makes no obvious sense meaning she must of been a passport holder. You can't hope to get through the border with no documentation. Read your article next time thoroughly. Have you ever gone through U.S customs on the border? I have dozens of times.

Yet you continue to change the subject. Please answer the question so we can end this discussion. Otherwise stop crying wolf and personally attacking me every time I post an article that is clearly related to immigration.

Thank you in advance.

this would be best filed under border issues. customs issues. drug smuggling issues.i guess that would be a "CONTROVERSY".

immigration issue? not really. the drug smugler could very well hold US citizenship, they were trying to cross legally after all.

as for CPB's invovlement. anything that includes traffic between the US, Mex and CND will involve them, from the smallest fruit, to the biggest load of drugs. thats why thye are in it.

but there is still no connection to immigration. this is about drug smuggling.

and all i could say is...

THanks customs agents for keeping more drugs out of the US!!!

Did I not explicitly mention "U.S customs on the border"? I'm starting to think YOU don't know what CBP (U.S customs and border protection) is. I know their procedures, as I've stated before, have been through U.S customs on the border many times.

Quite the contrary, the article is centered around drug smuggling. Que no?

a waste of time.
she probably thinks ICE and CBP are one in the same.
true, its all homeland security, but with different functions.
ims sure she would be just as confused about why the coast guard was involved in a drug smuggling boat raid. it has to be about immigration! the coast guard always catches mexicans trying to swim into san diego from TJ via the pacific ocean. IT HAS TO BE ABOUT IMMIGRATION.

No, you DID NOT. That being said, it's obvious that only after considerable badgering you decided to look it up. Either you refuse to admit your accusation was incorrect or you lack the skills to comprehend the functions of CBP. Key words: BORDER PROTECTION. Border protection's main function is to PROTECT OUR BORDERS AND KEEP ILLEGAL ALIENS, their drugs, etc. OUT.

To say or think otherwise is dishonest on your part.

ACTUALLY its a function of ICE. Immigration and Customs ENFORCEMENT. the CPB just makes sure they are caught. its like the place holder to the kicker. they set up the regualtions for international trade and traffic. while they also deal with illegal people, that is not their main function.
