Customs and Border Patrol further reported:
Located in Ventura County, Port Hueneme is the only commercial deep-water port between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Strategically located, Port Hueneme is an important hub for imports of autos, fresh produce, general cargo, bulk liquids, and fish.
“This is the largest drug seizure at Port Hueneme in the last quarter of a century,” said LaFonda Sutton-Burke, CBP Port Director of the LA/Long Beach Seaport, and Port Hueneme.
Democrats mocked the news, noting that President Trump had said “drugs don’t come through ports of entry.
“It was the largest cocaine bust in 25 years at California’s Port Hueneme. More than 200 pounds of cocaine were found hidden on two ships. The feds announced the bust on the same day Trump said drugs don’t come through ports of entry.” https://t.co/TIcmggnvIl #FakeTrumpEmergency
