God, Hope & Helping Others
In 2006, an image made headlines showing a man sewn into a car seat in an attempt to illegally cross the Mexican/U.S. border. Now U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) have shared images of some of their most bizarre busts in the war on the smuggling of people and drugs into America.
Figures from 1 October 2009 to April of this year show customs officers at the six crossings along the California/Mexico border have seized:
85,479 lbs of marijuana
4,180 lbs of cocaine
2,977 lbs of methamphetamine
400 lbs of heroin.
During the same period, they stopped 23,929 illegal immigrants from crossing into America
