    Traffickers at El Chapo trial say drugs aren't coming into the US through open parts of the border - CNN


    Most drugs are smuggled into the United States onboard fishing boats, trains, tractor-trailers and ordinary cars that come into the country at legal ports of entry, according to former cartel members who've testified in the trial of notorious cartel leader Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

    Some cartel members have testified about using underground tunnels. But none have said they've transported drugs into the United States at unwalled sections of the border.




    So much for the Presidents fear mongering that his wall is needed to stop drug smuggling

    So full closure of the southern border then? Americans would have their wall in a week.

    Come on RW, you're smart enough to know that if you intensify screening at the ports-of-entry, the cartels will use tunnels, planes, boats, or horses to smuggle drugs in. The solution has to be an "all of the above". My brother was in the AF on the southern border, and said that radar could track all the drug planes coming over, but were not allowed to coordinate with DEA or local police.

    Also, the wall isn't just about drug smuggling, its also about human trafficking as well as stopping the flood of migrants and MS-13 members coming up by the thousands in cartel promoted caravans.

    Trump is an ignoramus.

    He did not know what the nuclear triad was (while he was running for POTUS), he doesn't read and this imbecile thought you needed ID to buy groceries.

    Trump Said You Need ID to Buy Groceries

    Of course drugs are not sent through the open parts of the border. You are not going to send a million dollars worth of cocaine over a border in the open...that is just begging to get caught.
    You smuggle it through in the most congested area possible - where the border guards are overwhelmed and are only looking for obvious cases.
    So, you blend in, look normal and smuggle over almost anything you want.

    That is common knowledge for anyone with ANY decent amount of street sense.

    As terrifying as it is, I would say El Chapo has more credibility that dOnald tRump.

    Most illegals come in through either ports of entry or through legally-acquired, expired visa's...NOT through scurrying through the border in the middle of nowhere. It's common knowledge to anyone that bothers to read about it.

    Most illegal immigration doesn't come through the Mexican border where Trump wants to build a wall
    The 2,000 Mile Wall in Search of a Purpose: Since 2007 Visa Overstays have Outnumbered Undocumented Border Crossers by a Half Million - The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS)

    Besides, Trump's fence is a joke if he thinks that thing is going to keep anyone remotely determined out. I would guess a welding/cutting torch and less than 30 minutes will make mince meat of his latest joke of a 'wall'.


    And why is Trump not calling for FAR tougher sentences for those who hire illegals? That is a cheap and easy way to discourage illegals.

    The answer is obvious - lots of Reps hire LOTS of illegals.

    When the border agents showed the drugs, guns, and money they caught at the border, doesn't that suggest something different than the Mexican Don says?
