Via CBP:

“EDINBURG, Texas – Rio Grande City agents seized more than 950 pounds of marijuana in two separate incidents.

Sunday evening, Rio Grande City agents working near La Rosita, Texas, responded to a report of a vehicle involved in narcotics smuggling traveling north from the Rio Grande. Agents in the area located the vehicle and, shortly thereafter, the driver of the vehicle abruptly turned south and traveled towards the river. As agents approached the river, they observed the driver abandon the vehicle and swim to Mexico. Agents searched the vehicle and discovered 571 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $457K.

A short while later, Rio Grande City agents on patrol received information of a narcotic smuggling attempt near Garciasville, Texas. As agents responded, they observed an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) abruptly turn around and travel south towards the Rio Grande riverbank. Upon arrival, agents discovered the ATV abandoned carrying several bundles of marijuana. The marijuana weighed 387 pounds and is worth an estimated $310K. Agents searched for the ATV rider and additional narcotics to no avail.

The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and report suspicious activity at 800-863-9382. ”

Good! Give him the maximum sentence!

CBP is reporting:

“EAGLE PASS, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Eagle Pass station arrested a Mexican Mafia member during a failed human smuggling attempt, Oct. 2.

Agents assisted Maverick County Sheriff’s deputies on a traffic stop in Eagle Pass and discovered three illegal aliens concealed in the back seat of the vehicle. The driver and front-seat passenger, both U.S. citizens, and the three illegal aliens were arrested and taken to the Eagle Pass South Station for processing.

“We enjoy an excellent relationship with our local law enforcement partners” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “I applaud the Maverick County Sheriff’s Deputies and our agents, who worked together to stop a convicted felon from smuggling illegal aliens into our communities.”

The driver, identified as Juan Alberto Garcia, 39, is a self-admitted member of the Mexican Mafia and has an extensive criminal history. Garcia has multiple felony convictions throughout Texas for drug-related offenses and other crimes including assault, burglary and theft. He and the front-seat passenger will both be charged with 8 USC § 1324 – Alien Smuggling, and face up to 10 years in prison.

The illegal aliens apprehended, two from Ecuador and one Guatemalan national, will be processed in accordance with U.S. Customs and Border Protection guidelines.”

Here are a few of the videos we shot during the construction of our first section of border wall. We’re building more soon!

Walking Up Kolfage's Border Wall – Final Day Of Construction

This is a video I shot on the day we were placing the final bollard section at the top of Airman Kolfage's border wall we built. I walked from the bottom to the top. It was around 100 degrees out. I was on the mountain 15 hours that day (It was actually my birthday), documenting the final section being put in. I sped up the video so it's in time-lapse format. Projects 2 & 3 are starting soon. Thanks for everyone's support! Donate for sections 2 & 3 here: https://webuildthewall.us/donation-form/

This is from the first night we were on site for the construction of Airman Kolfage's border wall. May 18th. The terrain was so rough a 40-ton CAT 825K compactor got stuck & had to "duck walk" up the mountain. You can hear Foreman Mike barking orders to the operator. Everyone cheered when it made it up the hill. I have about a thousand videos of wall construction so I'll be pumping them out as fast as I can. I'll try to keep to chronological order. Donate for our next sections of wall here & tell 'em Photographer Jeff sent you! Thanks for all your support from We Build the Wall! https://www.gofundme.com/f/thetrumpwall

Dust Storms During Construction Of Airman Kolfage's Border Wall

Videos I shot of the dust storms during construction of Airman Kolfage's border wall in New Mexico. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸Temperatures were in the high 90s to 100s & the elevation was 3800-4000 feet. Near the end there are shots of the wall from Blackwater's security overwatch area. Very cool! Watch on a computer & use headphones to get the full effect!
