Is the Border Secure? Shocking Video Shows Otherwise

Just about a week ago, we were given a video exposing a major breach on the U.S./Mexico border near Lukeville, Arizona, located about 100 miles southwest of Tucson.  We checked its authenticity with our sources at the Department of Homeland Security who have confirmed that the video is real and was taken recently.  This was first posted by Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever and see how, despite claims by the Administration, the border is far from secure.

Our DHS sources have been able to determine from the clothes the men are wearing, the straps on their backpacks, and other things they're carrying, that these are indeed drug smugglers bringing hundreds of pounds of illegal drugs into the United States.

The fence shown here was built by the Bush Administration and part of a $1 billion contract with Boeing. Amazingly, the fence was designed to do exactly what the smugglers did. The fence panels slide inside two steel columns, but no one in the Bush Administration nor at Boeing even considered welding the panels to the posts, making it easy for smugglers to get through. What we don't know is if they failed to weld along the entire length of the fence or just in some areas.

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has testified before Congress, saying the border is more secure now than it's ever been. Administration officials boast about fewer border crossings and the effectiveness of thousands of more border patrol agents. But where are the border patrol agents in this video? And if there aren't any border patrol agents to see the illegal crossings, then the crossings can't be recorded.

NumbersUSA is currently pushing for a Congressional investigation into this major breach of border security. The fence needs to be fixed, and Boeing needs to pay for it!

We need all Americans to watch it and consider its ramifications. Whether it be smuggling of illegal drugs, national security, or illegal immigration, every American should be shocked and demand answers!

Previously Deported Alien Caught Transporting Methamphetamine Through Sherman County Sentenced to Serve 78 Months in Federal Prison

PORTLAND, Ore. – Guadalupe Navarro (a.k.a. “Mari Vasquez”), 50, of Tulare, California, was sentenced on January 20, 2011, by U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown to 78 months in prison, for methamphetamine trafficking and illegal re-entry after deportation.

On the evening of October 3, 2010, a Sherman County Sheriff’s Office deputy stopped defendant’s vehicle for a traffic infraction. Defendant provided false identification, and deputies ultimately discovered her true identity and an outstanding warrant for her arrest. During a search of her vehicle, deputies seized one pound of methamphetamine and three pounds of marijuana. A criminal history check also revealed that she had a prior felony conviction in 2003 for unlawfully manufacturing methamphetamine after which she was deported to Mexico. Subsequently, defendant illegally returned to the United States.

Soon after her arrest in Sherman County, local authorities learned defendant was a target in an investigation initiated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in Fresno, California. In the summer of 2010, DEA agents obtained authorization to conduct wiretaps on several members of a Mexican National Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO) operating in southern California. Defendant was intercepted in many incriminating calls, including conversations in which she described in coded language the quality of methamphetamine she was selling, price points, and growing frustration with her sources of supply.

“This conviction is the result of the excellent police work by the Sherman County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with DEA agents in Fresno,” said U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall. “This teamwork is essential to stemming the flow of methamphetamine coming north from Mexico into the Pacific Northwest and beyond.”

This case was investigated by the Sherman County Sheriff’s Office, DEA Fresno, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The case was prosecuted by Assistant U. S. Attorney Leah K. Bolstad.
