Border Patrol assist in Bahamas relief, busts gang members


The U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been demonized for enforcing existing immigration, including some of the controversial border security and detention methods that both President Obama and President Trump employed.

Because they are vilified in the media and by numerous federally elected officials, the CBP has mounted an aggressive public relations campaign to paint the real picture of what the agency does on a regular basis.

Aside from keeping illegal aliens enter the country illegally, the Border Patrol is also tasked to stem the flow of illicit drugs into the country, keep out illegal immigrants, and arrest deadly gang and cartel members.

The Florida sector of the CBP, along with other regional sectors, continues to assist in the recovery efforts in The Bahamas.

Up to this point, CBP seized 97,351lbs of cocaine; 2,560 lbs. of fentanyl; 5,210 lbs. of meth, and 75,430 lbs. of heroin.

In addition, some 933 criminal gang members have been arrested, including 445 members of the deadly MS-13 gang.
