“As our frontline CBP officers enforce more than 400 laws on behalf of more than 40 federal agencies, their vigilance and ever-present dedication to CBP’s priority border security mission leads to significant seizures of hard narcotics in the commercial environment, as this seizure aptly illustrates,” said Port Director Alberto Flores, Laredo Port of Entry.
