OAN Newsroom

The Trump administration is allowing customs officers to screen all cargo trucks coming into the U.S. in an effort to crack down on Mexican drug cartels.

Under the Obama administration agents would only conduct random inspections allowing cartels to run their concealed loads through the border, but border security forces will now use technology to screen every cargo truck.

According to the Department of Transportation about 471,000 trucks pass through the U.S.-Mexico border on a monthly basis.

Officials say cartels often use other routes to transport drugs, but their preferred method is driving through a port of entry.

    i agree Rnj – end the war on drugs – it is just like prohibition and causes violence – plus we could really use the tax dollars right now and people will be free to get help when they need it.

    Stopping the flow of drugs into our country is high priority in my way of thinking. Heroin and Cocaine being the worst for destroying our youth.
    Our jails and prisons are full of good kids gone bad by these addictions, and, i do believe that our judges often times see dollar signs when they convict these youths. I don`t know if these prisons are for profit prisons or not, but sometimes i wonder ?
    I know from my own experiences within my family that Heroin, once taken, has you hooked, and then the lying, stealing, and visiting the pawn shops to sell stolen property to buy their habit drug is non stop until they have to face the judge, and jail time. Money fines and community service are usually what judges impose, and parents and Grandparents are usually involved to fill up county and city coffers. So, i say, hell yes stop the flow of drugs any way you can Mr. President, and, thank you for your service.

    They will always find a way to bring in the goods, which our economy depends upon. Our own government has made inroads possible behind the guise of war on drugs. Will this measure stop traffic? Most definitely not. Wait for it…drone drops in our future. Cry for our kids.

  6. Real Canuck | August 4, 2017 at 4:38 am |

    Sure wish there was more fentanyl laced drugs out there……time to get rid of all these drug dealers and users.

  7. Illegal drugs.
    Illegal aliens.
    Equal protection of law.

  8. now their gonna dig tunnels n what if they do so many that the floor clapses. or they can plan it like that jus like in the movie An Italien Job with markey mark

  9. TexanForever | August 3, 2017 at 7:04 pm |

    They need to dismantle all Ford vehicles made in Mexico, too. Many have been found to contain drugs inside doors, gas tanks, and even frames.

    Build the damn wall.

  10. About time!!!

  11. bucketnutz | August 3, 2017 at 5:13 pm |

    Yall really miss Obama and his crooked Border Politics. Obama was and still may be in the Narcotics business with the cartel.

  12. Many people do not want help when it comes to drugs and alcohol, and trying to help them is a waste of time.

  13. Lenny Woodson | August 3, 2017 at 2:33 pm |

    The racist bigoted border gestapo is violating the rights of the poor misguided Mexican cartel

  14. constitutiononly | August 3, 2017 at 1:16 pm |

    Good! Hope it works. Border agents are bound to catch more illegal aliens as well. Get those drug dogs out there to chew on a few.

  15. Kay Crawford | August 3, 2017 at 1:09 pm |

    Now onto screening every container on a container ship

  16. drug cartel = mexican government

  17. These inspections need to happen at every port of entry not just San Ysidro. The roaches will find the holes if they aren’t blocked.

  18. Ez target, send a cruise missile to the drug cartels home and operations.

    • Were we, the WORLD, serious about reigning in these violent drug gangs; that is EXACTLY what the civilized (yes, civilized) nations would agree to do. Surgical strikes, removing ALL the main players, their Lts. , and their minions.

    • I was just thinking the same thing before I scrolled down to your post LOL. Wack em hard!

  19. "I'm a Rooster!" | August 3, 2017 at 11:11 am |

    I couldn’t help but ponder; The “Drug Cartels are fuming…” (a short play)

    DRUG CARTEL (to Border Patrol): “What the Hell is this? Why are you stopping me? Where’s Obama? Who made this law?
    BORDER PATROL: Sorry, drug dude, President Trump gave us permission to do our jobs now. We will need to seize your truck. You have drugs and illegal aliens inside and you cannot bring it into the U.S. any more.
    DRUG CARTEL: THIS IS MIERDA, CABRON! I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS, THIS OPPRESSION, GRINGO!
    BORDER PATROL: I know. This really sucks for you and the Democratic Liberals.
    DRUG CARTEL: But, this is a Sanctuary City, you fool! Get me Peloosi or Choomer on the phone. Here’s their cell phone number…(he hands him a piece of paper)
    BORDER PATROL: Sorry again, drug dude. You’re still in Mexico, but, [you will] be going to a U.S. prison now. Please step out of the truck…

  20. James Edmond | August 3, 2017 at 10:38 am |

    Good for the Trump administration.

  21. I love the headline! When I read it, I imagined one of the Cartels actually going onto the Yelp Page of the Border Agency and leaving a scathing review about how hard it is to get drugs through the border now.

  22. Robert Adams | August 3, 2017 at 9:51 am |

    Hope they’ll get the human cargo, too

  23. Terri Thurik | August 3, 2017 at 9:26 am |

    It’s about time. maybe less drugs will come into the USA

  24. "I'm a Rooster!" | August 3, 2017 at 9:18 am |

    “The natives are restless…”

  25. Now that we have a Great President, doesn’t mean everyone can go back to sleep. We have to continue voting in the elections or the Dems will rise again.

  26. Nancy Peolozi and Chuckie Schumer are called this action
    a violation of the Drug Cartel’s constitutional Rights
    and have asked the ACLU to provide legal assistance to the cartels.
    “The Cartels are major donors to the DNC and they deserve our support”
    Schumer says.
    Chelsea Clinton Praises Schumer’s action in this

  27. Jorge Casique | August 3, 2017 at 8:32 am |

    U want to keep there money what does that make u

  28. Wake up Sheeple | August 3, 2017 at 8:24 am |

    Thank you Lord God for our strong President.

  29. More Hype for Trump followers. RED MEAT for everyone!

    • You idiots believed the last 8 years of hype from your lying POS Obummer. It`s a damn good thing that the rest of us were here to save our country from 8 more years of your Liberal idiocy.
      You`re welcome.

    • Still butt-hurt that your criminal candidate lost? cry me a river, libtard, Obama really screwed the American people.

      • yes, my house doubling in value really sucked. Gas prices dropping to $2.30 per gallon and unemployment at 4.7% with the Dow at 18000. Your right, what a terrible eight years I suffered thru.
        A little disappointed your criminal candidate won. After all, he was and still is under criminal investigation.

  30. Finally, they are fuming instead of us. Thanks President Trump!

  31. For Eight years the country was put on death roll by Obama and the Democrat party along with the media. The idea was to destroy the fiber of the United States and in doing so to reshape it after Europe. Socialism democrat style. Where over the last eight years, the rich got richer, those in power got richer and more powerful and the rule of law was forgotten. Clinton (all three of them) got rich as their corruption just continued without any checks. And for 20 years the congress has allowed those things to go on. I.e. No charges brought against Clinton, yet we all know that she broke the law. At best she miss handled classified information which doesn’t seem to mean anything unless of course your not one of the chosen few. The liberals try to make these things out as nothing, but they are a indication of what is in store if they are allowed to continue. One the average American will have no rights to speak of, justice is whatever they the powerful want at the time and whatever serves their corrupt minds. People voted to change the way things have been going, it is clear and becoming increasing clear that is not possible through the election process. The media which is by and large corrupt and belongs to the Democrat socialist, the congress which seems not to fully grasp the situation and thinks people are just blowing steam, have for to long lived isolated from what is brewing under the surface. If you go out and sit down with people and actually talk with them, you will find that the brewing tea pot under the surface is about ready to explode. That explosion will make the Arab springs seem like a afternoon in the park. Why do you think there has been and continues to be a push for doing away with the 2nd amendment? Why do you think they are quite right now about it? Not that they aren’t going to do it, in fact they said that in order for Trump to get anything through he will have to give into their calls for greater gun control and to abolish most private ownership. That’s part of their plan. It’s a fact a disarmed population becomes SLAVES of the ruling class. We sit on a powder keg right now that is about ready to blow.

    • you should get professional help

      • Constitutionalist56 | August 3, 2017 at 8:27 am |

        Sorry CLOWN, the only person in need of mental health is YOU and the rest of your paid Soro’s troll butt buddies. Why don’t you just overdose on the Heroin that your scummy illegal friends keep bring into our country?

      • No that’s not a threat to Trump only to those that oppose the constitution and those that willing gave to the Russia’s access to US classified material, one Hillary Clinton. Who took million from the Russian’s, oh Clinton, who gave away 20-25% of the US uranium to Russian’s oh Clinton, who lied to congress oh Clinton. Who wants gun control and talks about the Democrats. Who is anti-American, Anti-Constitution, well that would be those that passed a law that has stolen millions if not billions in the form and lie of “affordable Healthcare” and “Green Energy”. Billions of dollars of Tax Payers money. Who supports radical ideas and violence “the Democrat” party. Who is the party that spends so much time trying to divide (Democrats).

        • Hillary lost, she is out, nada, zip, nothing, out of power, never coming back.(and you don’t know the story on Uranium) I bet you live in W Vagina?

      • What? You are so lost. Try turning off CNN and MSNBC once in awhile and get the real news. The biggest threat to our freedom is the racist Democrat Party crime syndicate, and they are declining fast.

      • constitutiononly | August 3, 2017 at 1:29 pm |

        Idiot!

        • Grand jury impaneled today, subpoenas issued to Trump jr and Manafort. I think your GOD is the idiot.

          • Richard Carlson | August 3, 2017 at 2:49 pm |

            WHO PAYS YOU TO TROLL GET THE HELL OUTA SPREAD YOUR MISERY INTO OUTER SPACE! WHAT A DORK FOOL MORON

          • I say it and you have to hear it, otherwise you just ignore the facts as usual. I hope I drive everyone one of you ass-oles away from this place. F-cking echo chamber of fools.

          • FreedomFighter | August 3, 2017 at 6:59 pm |

            LOL!!!!Stay on that ass!!!!!! We need more like you to slap my pet idiot kevin. That moron has TDS so bad it’s fun watching him make a complete fool of himself!!!

    • Jorge Casique | August 3, 2017 at 8:29 am |

      None of this mentions Trump and his involvement with Russia his he going to jail ?

      • Vladimir Kunin | August 3, 2017 at 8:45 am |

        What “involvement”??? ANY facts???
        Do not read NYT And WP before bedtime – it endanger your heals.

        • I guess the whole Robert Mueller investigation called for by Trump appointed AAG is FAKE NEWS huh?

      • Maybe because he didn’t – You might want to figure out the Clintons collected millions from Russia, how she gave away so much of the US 20-25% of the uranium of the US, how she allowed the Russian’s access to her server so they could spy on US, you might want to ask those questions. No because it has been shown that there was no involvement between Trump and Russia

      • Before you figure out the flavor of toe-jamb you have collected, you might just want to use those brain cells that reside in that space above your shoulders and do some research. Real research, not parroting of liberal propaganda and find out that for months, years, they have found NONE, NADA, ZILCH, NYET, or NO collusion between President Trump and the Russian government concerning this past election. You might also want to find out about the collusion that was broadcasted between Obama and Russia. Or between Clinton and Russia.

        • William Thompson | August 3, 2017 at 10:14 am |

          Democrats love to make things up.

        • some things,
          First, you have zero idea of what evidence has been collected. I think it’s piling up against Trump as his obstruction of Justice offenses keep coming.
          second, Flynn is still sitting on the side lines waiting to tell his story, remember?
          third, Trump jr had a nice meeting regarding Russian intel on Clinton during the campaign (which he lied about with Daddy’s help). Now we find Trump invented the Seth Rich conspiracy with Fox news to distract from the Russia thing. WTF???
          And lastly, Trump and his people have lied tying to cover up over and over again.
          Why can’t they just come clean if they are clean?

      • We don’t do the fake news thing here, libtard.

      • But what did Obama mean when he told Putin he would be more flexible after the 2012 election? Did that mean Obama would collude to hand over tons of nuclear material and do nothing when Russia too Crimea? The more you liberals bring this up, the more it’s obvious that Obama and the Democrats are covering up their own collusion.

    • All American | August 3, 2017 at 1:52 pm |

      We the people are the powder and the keg🇺🇸

  32. Its Awesome, and about time. Love Trump

  33. If they’re referring to x-raying all the trucks that’s great news. That’s a great technology that we’ve used for years at Border Patrol checkpoints. Glad to hear it.

  34. If all of us have to go thru screening at airports the trucks should all be screened also. Not doing it is like leaving the door partially open.

    • constitutiononly | August 3, 2017 at 1:37 pm |

      True. Another thing: All of those huge containers at ports of entry should also be searched. Thousands of them daily. Is there some technology that can do that efficiently?

  35. Not A PC Guy | August 3, 2017 at 7:44 am |

    Another little suggestion… anytime a truck is found containing drugs, permanently ban the driver from entry into the USA. Also, confiscate the truck. Gone, forever.

  36. Randall Davis | August 3, 2017 at 7:38 am |

    They portable x-ray machines for a reason….can’t hide from them…or the dogs.

  37. Martin Alvarez | August 3, 2017 at 7:30 am |

    Good. But what are the drug addicted gringos going to do?

    • Johnny Mountain | August 3, 2017 at 7:48 am |

      Sober up . The US should use the Phillipino model . If you get caught smuggling drugs you are executed on the spot .

      • Yes, then WE can be the banana republic that Trump wants

        • You are a special kind of stupid. It was Obama that was buddies with Castro, Chavez, and a number of other communist dictators. Sees like you guys keep confusing Trump with Obama.

    • ie… liberal gringos

  38. They should also check the trucks going back into Mexico looking for the cash being shipped back to Mexico. They’d be finding 100’s of millions of dollars, enough to build the wall and pay for more border security personnel.

    • Great idea. That’s one way to get Mexico to pay for the wall.

    • Jonney Quest | August 3, 2017 at 11:53 am |

      Pretty sure Citi Bank and others in the Banking Cartel have that covered already. With a little graft to the Congress critters who make it possible.

    • HarryObrian | August 3, 2017 at 1:13 pm |

      That’s all laundered in the states and exported digitally.

    • constitutiononly | August 3, 2017 at 1:26 pm |

      There’s that! Every dime that the border patrol agents find and confiscate, coming or going, should go toward the wall and toward financing throwing illegal aliens out of our country. A count should be kept and we should be informed.

  39. Daniel J. Lopez | August 3, 2017 at 7:16 am |

    If this is kept up, the Democratic party will lose a lot of votes…

    • HarryObrian | August 3, 2017 at 1:17 pm |

      Wow, just how many of posters here work for President Trump? This is almost worse than when Barry had his flying monkeys posting his krap all over the net.

  40. Just Saying-2 | August 3, 2017 at 7:05 am |

    Now it’s time to search every truck from Canada and every shipping container from overseas. Charge a fee to carriers to cover the cost.

    • You realize the cost is passed on to US, the consumer.

      • Not A PC Guy | August 3, 2017 at 7:38 am |

        Derrr, I think that’s why he suggested charging the carriers, duhhhh.

        • Derr…I think you missed the part where the American Consumer pays for “Charging the carriers”….Derrr.

          • Constitutionalist56 | August 3, 2017 at 8:28 am |

            Are you a criminal? So THAT’S why you support criminal activity that is killing this country!

          • Clearly.

        It wouldn’t be as costly as the Drug problem America is having…..
        All those Over Doses cost us tax payers a LOT of money…….EMS – EMT UNITS – POLICE- HOSPITALS – DOCTORS – NURSES- CORONERS……ETC……….

        • That was not the point of the comment. The comment referred specifically to the above comment that obviously thought charging the carriers would somehow make THEM pay for the inspections.

  41. Amazing, what happens when you allow people to do their jobs; release the hounds!

  42. Shane Norkus | August 3, 2017 at 6:59 am |

    All trucks coming in from Mexico and Canada should be stopped, inspected and searched for contraband. Unless the driver’s are certified for our roadways, their cargo will be transferred to American trucks driven by American citizens.

    • As I remember the requirements that Mexican Trucks and Drivers meet US Standards were waved under NAFTA. No requirements to read or speak English either. Canada and the US have basically the same Driver and Vehicle Standards so it is not a problem between Canada and the US.

      • Shane Norkus | August 3, 2017 at 11:18 am |

        I beg to differ. There are leftist Canadians who despise US and will transport illegals, and terrorists, into our country.

  43. so Trump has admitted Mexico wont pay for the wall. What a giant fraud this potus is. Putin towers over him as well

    • wildfire1944 | August 3, 2017 at 7:01 am |

      Good lord hillery you lost , go away !

    • You want to explain HOW your pea-brain arrived at this conclusion?

      • they released the transcripts of his conversation with the president of Mexico from back in January. Trump admitted Mexico won’t pay and asked him to stop saying it publicly. Such a fraud.

        • Constitutionalist56 | August 3, 2017 at 8:31 am |

          Retarded liberal troll is so triggered because we are going to take his dope away from him.

        • The money saved by cutting funding for illegal sanctuary cities should just about cover the wall. Indirect, but Mexico still pays for the wall.

        • LOL! This is another fake news CNN story. You people really need to turn off the fake news. I couldn’t find one reliable source for this “transcript”.

    • Poor dems just can’t handle life right now. This is what 8 years of defacing America does to those that have been getting over on the system. The will pay for the wall when all the jobs return to the US.

    • Mexican President Nieto initially came out strongly against Mexico paying for the wall. No surprise since his election depended on Mexican voters. He later softened his position considerably, perhaps out of concern over new border tariffs or restrictions. Who will pay how much of the cost of the wall has not yet been determined.

      • He never softened his position. Trump demanded he stop saying he would not pay to the press. Smoke and mirrors. Trump lied to you, you believed him

        • Constitutionalist56 | August 3, 2017 at 8:30 am |

          Trump did not lie you simpering commie phaggett. OBAMA LIED and stole, and divided this country like no other scumbag liberal until you go back to the Civil War.

        • What Trump actually said most recently was that he would “absolutely” send Mexico the bill for the wall. Since it hasn’t been built yet, there is no bill to send yet. Trump hasn’t lied to me yet, and yes, I believe him. Unlike Obama and Hillary for that matter, he has been completely open and honest about his intentions from the beginning.

          • just read the transcripts from his conversation with the Mexican president. But you’re afraid your fragile narrative might crash and you never will.

          • Please cite your transcript source more specifically (date, web site, etc.). I do not believe the man who has the least respect and fear of the press would go on record asking a foreign president to help him look better to the press. But I welcome you to prove me wrong.

          • LIAR!

        • The wall is going up, moron. You have no room to complain about lying after 8 years of nothing but lies from ODumbo. So, best get off the crack, libtard, the smuggling will stop.

    • He didn’t admit that, LIAR!

  44. antiliberalcryptonite | August 3, 2017 at 6:54 am |

    Fume away and bürn in héII.

  45. Once again, it’s nice to have an American President that represents American interests.

    • Sane_Person37 | August 3, 2017 at 7:39 am |

      It’s been a long time since Reagan left office.

    • Rnj Home Improvement | August 3, 2017 at 11:49 am |

      im sorry i dont see Trump representing my interest while he spends hundreds of dollars in his florida resort or hosting events in his businesses. ( money that he will received when he leaves the office) or how about the fact that his plane was upgraded for free and he will have a retrofitted plane. so never heard Trump saying that he will subside students loans so people can stop working for a better future not to make corporations richer. or how given tax breaks to the rich people is helping me?

      • If you’re a tax payer, you will be helped by tax reform.

        If you’re a member of the middle class, you will be helped by tax reform.

        If you’re a societal leech, don’t worry. There are plenty of RINOs in Congress to bail you out.

        • Rnj Home Improvement | August 3, 2017 at 12:06 pm |

          im alower middle class man that owns my business and compete against corporations/contractors. my company we bidded on reparing a section of the border fence 30 miles where i live at, and yet another company from new york won the bid. funny thing is we were paid less and that company hire us to do the work we bidded on. so obviously we had all the insurances and requirements and yet a multinational company that does construction in iraq that over bid 5 times over. so my tax break is supposed to ve the same percentage as that company?

          • I, too, am baffled how the federal government operates, regardless of which party is in power.

            Nonetheless, you should be embracing tax reform and the elimination of the hyperregulatory environment that has crushed small business owners, like yourself.

            No one should be talking about anything that doesn’t exist as though it does or that it will, that is just pure political posturing and BS. Also it doesn’t matter what the Trump admin represents until it is fact, everything else is just BS hyperbole AND with Congress stopping that admin at every turn and with their being more leaking traitors in that admin that ever before I’d say both the admin and the government have zero interest in you commoners.

          • You have just made it very clear that you did not get the job because you are unqualified. Excuses are not justifications.

        ease of student loans are responsible for Universities tuition going thru roof, immature folks getting an easy loan are fodder for Universities to charge them exorbitant fees.

        Butt hurt is strong with you ! You must be one of those that see a glass as “half empty” whereas an optimist sees it as half full. Suck it up, only 7 more years of Trump and then 8 years of Pence. Now that voter fraud is exposed and being dealt with, it is over for the snowflakes.

      • Ahhhh. Your are a socialist. YOU don’t DESERVE a free education. You get a taxpayer education through K12. For some reason people think colleges are all about education. Not on your life. Colleges are FOR PROFIT organizations. Colleges make you take classes you will never need or use to fill out a 4 year degree. The more money they can get from government loans the more they raise their price for education because it is a (VERY BIG) elitist business.

      They have NOT been “trying” to stop the drugs from entering this country as much as they have been trying to “control” the drugs that enter this country.

      The government will never STOP the drugs, all they really want to do is control them so they can make Dollar Dollar Bills from them.

      So the new technology is only so they can STOP the drugs they don’t know about from entering the country.

  50. About time, these trucks carry huge amounts of contraband ,including future ,illegal,Democratic voters.

      shouldn’t we spend billions on social programs that can educate the drug users? but noooo defense contractors that sell weapons, equipment, rent jails, those rats that bride senators and governors are the ones the goverment should be after. no junkies no drug demand no banks to launder money no drug demand, then maybe USA can stop being the world police and focus on stop having a 3rd world education system and inepts in congress.

      • Jonney Quest | August 3, 2017 at 11:51 am |

        You can pay for the social programs. People have a decision in life, be productive of don’t. I’m not using my money to pay for a bunch of deadbeats social programs, let them work for it themselves.

        • Rnj Home Improvement | August 3, 2017 at 11:58 am |

          you are right but the reason why germany became a super power in just 70 yrs was because they do have social programs that inspire people to do better. at some point this programs will stop being used because people got better jobs means better life and no drugs. but again i just realized that having a super jobs doesnt save people from becoming junkies. it’s the education given at home, funny how bibles are forbidden in schools and yet they are given freely in jails and death row inmates.

          • Germany???

          • constitutiononly | August 3, 2017 at 1:20 pm |

            Guess who paid for German restoration as a nation? Guess who prevents that country from being taken over by Putin? Now, guess which country has surrendered that hard-won rehabilitation to hundreds of thousands of Muslim terrorist invaders?

          • Germany became an export powerhouse thanks to the Euro currency. Many currency experts think that if the Deutsche Mark were still around, it could be 50% higher than the Euro is today. German companies drip with fear when they hear rumors of euro zone break up. Without the Euro, they know the Asian tigers would eat them for breakfast!

          • TexanForever | August 3, 2017 at 7:15 pm |

            The U.S. Marshal Plan is what rebuilt Germany. Merkel is squandering Germany’s heritage with her idiotic feel-good socialism. … And Germany is NOT a superpower.

            I earned Master’s degrees in both Socialism (because it was so easy), and Experimental & Clinical Psychology (because it was so challenging). Socialism is a worthless joke perpetrated by screwed-up professors on students too lazy to study the real sciences.

          • Donald York | August 4, 2017 at 7:01 am |

            Hitler indoctrinated his people for his advancement of creating a super race. Millions of Jews perished. Is that the social program you are referring to ?

      • Junkies are interested in education there are tons of social services available to substance abusers , nothing works until they’re READY … ask any recovering alcoholic or drug addict , it’s sad

      • Steven Williams | August 3, 2017 at 3:49 pm |

        Obviously you have never used drugs.

        • Rnj Home Improvement | August 3, 2017 at 3:57 pm |

          ive tried because of peer pressure in college but nah it isn’t my thing i guess i was taught that problems and life will still be there after you use drugs so there is no point in hiding.

      • Obviously, you are a victim of our 3rd world education system.Try ‘brain improvement’.

      • Home improvement. You can’t work if you have no supplies. Same applies to the drug trade. Take your head out of the sand.

    • Just Imagine 10,000 more Nancy Pelosi’s and 50,000 more Maxine Waters
