Staff Report

NOTE: Corridor News has reached out to U.S. Customs and Border Protection for additional information and were informed that protecting the border and the U.S. Citizens is their first priority. Therefore, we expect what information we receive will be minimal.

Below you will find the latest information available for reported drug smuggling, human trafficking and illegal crossings that have occurred on the Texas border and ports.

It has been published by many news outlets around the country that the criminal activity on our Texas-Mexico border has been consistently dropping over the last couple of years, and Americans and Texans have been given inconsistent information on what is occurring on our border.

Our U.S. border issues are complex, and they affect all Texans.

This is our home, and to most Texans, the border isn’t a political issue or a tool to use against another political party; this is a safety and security issue for us, our children, families, friends and our local and national law enforcement.

As you read below, we hope the information provided will help all Texans to better understand the problems happening on our southern border and what we need to do to repair our current immigration laws and policies that stem from our lawmakers in D.C.

However, to better understand if these are real problems or just political bloviation concerning our southern border with drug smuggling, human trafficking of children and adults, unaccompanied children and illegal immigrant crossings that include gang members and many from terrorist countries, we need the real numbers, facts and statistics.

Texas isn’t the only state that shares a border with Mexico. Therefore, as you read our weekly report below, remember this information is only what is occurring on the Texas-Mexico border and Texas ports.

This information has been gathered and compiled directly from information given to us by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), which is under the purview of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

As for the accuracy of the information we are providing to you, we can only decipher the information that is released to us. Therefore, the number of incidents, arrests, types of narcotics, weight or the street value of said narcotics is considered the minimum amount.

We give the totals of illegal crossing arrests, including their nationality, drug seizures including weight and “street value” totals, current charges or convictions of those apprehended and other items to help all of us make educated decisions. Additionally, we include links to our other weekly border stories.

All people apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure their criminal histories are positively identified.

To report suspicious activity such as alien and/or drug smuggling, contact their website at http://www.cbp.gov. Or follow them on Twitter at @CBPRGV.

The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and to help save lives by reporting suspicious activity at 800-863-9382.

Laredo Sector Border Patrol Agents Encounter Aliens Held Against Their Will, Threatened

LAREDO, Texas – Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents on Tuesday apprehended several subjects who claimed to have been threatened and held against their will prior to entering the United States.

The incident began on February 26 around 10:00 a.m., when the first subject encountered, a male Honduran national, told the apprehending agents that while traveling through Mexico last week, he and several other individuals had been forced off a bus by suspected cartel members and taken to an unknown location.

The Honduran subject claimed he and approximately 200 other individuals were held at the location against their will by armed men who were attempting to extort additional money from them to cross into the U.S. illegally.

He said he was held for about a week before eventually escaping and crossing the Rio Grande by himself.

All of the aliens apprehended appeared to be in good health and did not require any medical attention.

“Human smugglers and traffickers view these people as commodities, a money-making opportunity, and nothing more,” said Laredo Sector Chief Patrol Agent Felix Chavez. “They’ll stop at nothing to maximize their profit, casually putting the lives of these individuals at risk, with no regard for their well-being. And while the U.S. Border Patrol will continue warning people about the dangers of crossing the border illegally, we will also do everything in our power to find these criminal smugglers and bring them to justice.”

CBP Announces 13 Additional Partnerships for New and Expanded Services

As part of the Reimbursable Services Program, these agreements will promote economic growth in cross-border trade and travel

WASHINGTON— U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced today 13 tentative selections for new reimbursable services agreements through Section 481 of the Homeland Security Act, 2002 to promote economic growth in cross-border trade and travel across the country.

These public-private partnerships in California; Delaware; Florida; Georgia; Louisiana; Maine; Maryland; New Jersey; New York; Pennsylvania; South Carolina; and Texas will allow approved private sector and state and local government entities to reimburse CBP for expanded services for incoming commercial and cargo traffic and international traveler arrivals.

“By creating partnerships, we can pursue innovative, joint solutions that allow CBP to keep pace with the continued increases in trade and travel year after year,” said CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan. “With our public-private partners, we are able to keep advancing America’s economic growth, locally and nationally, wherever our partners see a return on their investment.”

Since the program began in 2013, CBP has expanded the Reimbursable Services Program to 177 stakeholders, providing over 605,000 additional processing hours at the request of our partners—accounting for the processing of more than 11.9 million travelers and over 1.6 million personal and commercial vehicles.

The new agreements increase CBP’s ability to provide new or enhanced services on a reimbursable basis by creating partnerships with private sector and government entities.  Reimbursable services under this authority include customs, agricultural processing, border security services, immigration inspection, and support services at ports of entry.

The statute maintains several limitations at CBP-serviced airports, including reimbursable services being limited to overtime costs and support services for airports with 100,000 or greater arriving international passengers annually.  Airports with less than 100,000 arriving international passengers annually may offset CBP for the salaries and expenses of not more than five full-time equivalent CBP officers.  These agreements will not replace existing services.

The entities tentatively selected for these partnerships are:

In the air environment:

  • Charleston International Airport;
  • Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (Oakland International Airport);
  • Executive Jet Management (Wilmington Airport, DE; Lehigh Valley International Airport; Bangor International Airport; Boca Raton Airport; Teterboro Airport; Republic Airport);
  • Maryland Department of Transportation – Maryland Aviation Administration (Martin State Airport);
  • Select Management Resources, LLC (DeKalb-Peachtree Airport); and
  • The Private Suite (John F. Kennedy International Airport; Los Angeles International Airport; Miami International Airport; Newark Liberty International Airport).

In the sea environment:

  • ACGI Shipping LLC (Los Angeles / Long Beach, CA);
  • Delaware River Stevedores (Philadelphia, PA);
  • GAC North America, Shipping (Los Angeles / Long Beach, CA);
  • Norton Lilly International Agency (Los Angeles / Long Beach, CA);
  • Port Freeport (Freeport, TX);
  • Sol Group Marketing (Philadelphia, PA); and
  • The Port of New Orleans (New Orleans, LA).

The proposals were evaluated utilizing a rigorous, multi-layered process to ensure compatibility with CBP’s mission priorities.

The reimbursable services authority is a key component of CBP’s Resource Optimization Strategy and will allow CBP to provide new or expanded services at domestic ports of entry reimbursed by the partner entity.
