U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents work tirelessly to prevent a myriad of objects from entering the U.S., but what they just discovered is bologna.
According to CBS DFW, agents seized more than 200 pounds — about 100 kilos — of unclaimed contraband bologna recently at the border between the U.S. and Mexico.
Officials said they stopped a woman who had crossed into the U.S. through the Paso Del Norte crossing in El Paso, Texas, after she told agents that she wasn’t carrying any vegetables, meat, fruits, or any other illegal contraband.
Agents reportedly found 23 tubes of bologna hidden beneath the rear seats of the woman’s car and hidden in her trunk.
Officials said they found the meat stashed throughout the vehicle after the woman subseqently admitted she was carrying sausage in the car.
As noted by the Tribunist, it’s illegal to bring bologna, which is made of pork, into the U.S. because it could introduce diseases from foreign animals into the U.S. pork industry.
The agents reportedly seized and destroyed the bologna, and the woman was given a $1,000 fine.
While the agents likely found it a little humorous that the woman was trying to smuggle more than 200 pounds of bologna into the U.S., it underscores a serious problem at the southern border.
Oftentimes, agents are faced with very dangerous tasks that put their lives at risk every day.
President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall along the southern border would play a major role in keeping Americans safe and reducing the likelihood that illegal immigrants can bring whatever they want into the country.
We should be doing everything we can to protect our nation from all threats, which means that we can no longer tolerate Congress dragging its feet and allowing cartel members, illegal aliens and other criminals to enter the country.
The liberals had eight years of the Obama administration to play fast and loose with national security.
Those days should be over.
Sometimes, keeping America safe means preventing bologna from entering into the country, and thankfully our agents are prepared for anything!
