While 3,000 unaccompanied minors entered our border last month, DHS had bigger issues.
Stopping “pirated” purses and sunglasses is mission critical.
Some bourgeois Leftist woman can’t run the risk of getting a fake Gucci bag and sunglasses! After all, she won’t run the risk of rape, Dengue fever, tuberculosis, swine flu, or terrorism from the future Democrat who will suckle at the teat of taxpayer-funded government entitlements for decades.
According to Judicial Watch,
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency, Customs and Border Protection (CBP), charged with keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the U.S. is patting itself on the back this month for tackling pirated goods. CBP is the frontline agency responsible for keeping the nation safe by securing ports of entry from unauthorized foreign nationals and seizing illicit drugs or threatening materials. With a workforce of about 60,000, the agency is nevertheless overwhelmed in the increasingly violent, 2,000-mile southern border region. Criminals, Islamic terrorists, illegal aliens and tons of narcotics slip through CBP—which includes the Border Patrol—annually but the agency is on its game when it comes to those who try to sell fake Ray Bans and Gucci purses in the U.S. Americans can sleep soundly now. In 2014 CBP made $1.2 billion in seizures of counterfeit products. This includes footwear, electronics, toys, and other accessories. It’s the result of “an aggressive enforcement program to protect the United States from counterfeit and pirated goods,” according to an agency announcement with a detailed report attached to it. This includes around $375 million in imitation designer jewelry, $1.6 million in counterfeit sunglasses and more than $1 million in fake soccer club apparel.
