Drug Smugglers Jump Border Wall In Brownsville, Texas

Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin shared a video this week on X, formerly Twitter, showing suspected drug smugglers climbing a border wall in Brownsville, Texas while carrying large bags and escaping into the U.S. in a car that was waiting for them.

“Wow. Have done a lot of live shots in this spot in Brownsville. It’s downtown, one block away from the CBP port of entry,” Melugin posted. “This group of apparent drug smugglers had time to climb the wall w/ their cargo, then escape into the U.S. via smuggler without interference. Broad daylight.”

Conservatives say President Joe Biden’s open border policy has invited foreign nationals to break the law by crossing the border without authorization. Many have warned that the millions of illegal immigrants in recent years include people from nations on terrorist watch lists, potentially endangering U.S. national security and public safety with an insecure border.

Former President Donald Trump — who is the frontrunner for the Republican Party’s nomination to challenge Biden in November — says he can fix the border and solve the immigration problem if voters put him in office again. He has said he will take the blame for blocking Biden’s border bill in Congress until he can offer his alternative to the electorate.

The mainstream media and Democratic politicians and activists criticized Trump in December for saying that illegal immigrants are “poisoning the blood of this country.” But when asked about the remarks on Capitol Hill, Sen. JD Vance (R-OH) defended Trump’s message and said that fentanyl overdoses are literally poisoning the country’s blood due to a loose border policy.

“First of all, he didn’t say immigrants were poisoning the blood of this country,” Vance said. “He said illegal immigrants were poisoning the blood of this country, which is objectively and obviously true to anybody who looks at the statistics about fentanyl overdoses.”

“Why do you think that Donald Trump’s language is targeted at the blood of the immigrants and not at the blood of the American citizens who are being poisoned by the fentanyl problem. This is ridiculous [ … ] it’s obvious that he was talking about the very clear fact that the blood of Americans is being poisoned by a drug epidemic,” Vance added.
