Dulles MDMA seizure

Nearly 200 grams of MDMA were seized July 27 by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at Washington Dulles International Airport.

Three parcels that arrived in air cargo from London were found to contain 325 light green and yellow pills stamped with the Punisher skull logo on one side and a crown symbol on the other, according to CBP officials.

A field test of a sampling of the pills proved positive for MDMA, more commonly known as ecstasy or "Molly," which is a mood-altering synthetic hallucinogen. The Drug Enforcement Administration lists it as a Schedule 1 narcotic under the Controlled Substances Act.

The combined weight of the narcotics was 198.7 grams — a little more than seven ounces — and has a street value of approximately $20,000. The parcels were destined to addresses in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and East Syracuse, New York.

“This is an exceptional example of Customs and Border Protection officers exercising experience and intuition to intercept illicit and dangerous drugs at our nation’s ports of entry,” CBP Baltimore Field Office Director Casey Durst said in a prepared statement. “Narcotics interdiction remains a CBP enforcement priority, and is one way in which we help to keep our communities safe.”

On average, CBP officers and agents nationwide seize over 4,600 pounds of illicit drugs per day, according to officials.

Chris I don't know where you got that idea from, maybe some conspiracy radio show. Nobody has said that there should be no borders or CBP. It is the Dems that have passed immigration bills in the house but Moscow Mitch won't bring them up in the Senate. Nor has anyone said that CBP isn't needed, they have said that ICE should not exist.

What immigration Bill's? Really? Who sponsored the Bill's? How did the vote turnout?

H.R. 648: Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019, Rep. Nita Lowey, has border wall funding included,



H.R. 3670: Short-Term Detention Standards Act Sponsor: Rep. Elissa Slotkin



H.R. 3239: Humanitarian Standards for Individuals in Customs and Border Protection Custody Act Sponsor: Rep. Raul Ruiz

Amerigirl, admittedly, I'm impressed with your knowledge of Socialist politics. You must be commended. But obviously, the reason so called "Moscow Mitch" doesnt take up this legislation is because it is flawed legislation and does nothing to improve immigration laws. Just like when Havana Hussein Obama signed an executive order that illegally legislated DACA. It was flawed and should be overturned.

And the democrats were screaming racism after the perpetrators were arrested.


amerigirl

That is stupid, why would you even say that? Racism is more like the guy born in Greece, that was here legally since he was 6 mo. old that they deported to Iran so he could die on the streets


amerigirl

What? who what when & where?


Chris McHale

Clearly no need for borders. A job well done by CBP.


amerigirl

No one said there was no need for CBP they have said that there is no need for ICE. You have the wrong dept.


workhardgetahead

But there is a need for ICE. So you are just wrong.


Chris McHale

The position of the socialists is that there should be no borders, thus no CBP


amerigirl

Workhard, there is no need for ICE. It is the perfect job for ult-right. It is inhumane the way they separate families, they even deport Americans and people who are here legally. CBP did just fine before they were created. They are just hateful and cruel people. They don't even think of immigrants as people. Take the raids in Mississippi, all those kids coming home from the first day of school to empty homes, They are doing jobs that NO American would do. Get ready for the price of chicken to go up. Or sending all the Christian Iraqis back to Iraq with the high chance they could be killed for not being Muslim. So what is the need for ICE? We already have DHS and CBP. All ICE does is fulfill the racists dreams.


workhardgetahead

Who said there is no need for ICE? Kamala Harris? Ilhan Omar? Ocasio Cortez?. If so, hardly a legitimate authority.


workhardgetahead

ICE stands for Immigration Control and Enforcement. It use to be referred to as the Immigration and Naturalization Service



The name was changed in 2001, I believe after 9-11. Where was your outrage then. Where was your outrage when Obama was separating the children and conducting ICE raids on illegals. I know what fake outrage is and Amerigirl, your fake outrage, along with all of your ilks fake outrage, is one for the books.
