US Customs & Border Patrol agents caught a truck at the Mexican border loaded with meth and enough fentanyl to kill 57 million Americans. The bust was used by both President Donald Trump and his critics in the border wall battle.
RECORD FENTANYL SEIZURE – #CBP officers in AZ seized 254lbs of fentanyl and 395lbs of meth concealed in a tractor-trailer arriving from Mexico last week. It was the largest fentanyl seizure in CBP history. LEARN MORE: https://t.co/2unUTIKVbh pic.twitter.com/BZuRzgDVxG

Our great U.S. Border Patrol Agents made the biggest Fentanyl bust in our Country’s history. Thanks, as always, for a job well done!

CBP announces *massive* seizure of fentanyl at AZ border.
Guess where? Port of entry, not desert.
Guess who? Mexican national, not Central American asylum seeker.
Guess how? In a tractor-trailer, not a backpack.
Guess what didn't stop it? A wall. Agents using technology did. https://t.co/zoLG3Iuvdj

The largest seizure of fentanyl in U.S. history came through a port of entry in a tractor-trailer that was stopped at a border checkpoint in Arizona. No wall involved. https://t.co/GGTY2Sd3vj

Mark my words: Trump will tweet about the massive Fentanyl seizure in AZ.
Mark my words: He will not mention it was at a port of entry, where a border wall wouldn't matter.https://t.co/7sVwurRSQK

.@AaronBlake, if this much Fentanyl was intercepted at a port of entry, think how many more tons are coming across the unprotected portions of the border.
A little critical thinking goes a long way. https://t.co/tJBObUtZby
