WASHINGTON (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his security detail violated both Mexican and U.S. immigration laws by crossing the border on foot during a visit near El Paso, Texas, U.S. Customs and Border Protection alleges in a letter obtained by The Associated Press.

The mayor’s office flatly denied the allegation.

De Blasio, a fierce critic of the Trump administration’s immigration policies, went to the Texas border with about 20 other mayors from around the country on June 21, the day after President Donald Trump signed an order stopping family separations at the border.

The article goes on to state the following:

De Blasio went to a holding facility for immigrant children but was denied entry. He then went to Mexico and crossed into the U.S. to get a view of the facility. The New York Police Department runs de Blasio’s security detail.

According to the letter, a uniformed Border Patrol agent noticed a group on the Rio Grande River flood plain south of the Tornillo, Texas, Port of Entry, taking photos of the holding facility. The agent asked if anyone from Border Patrol or public affairs was there to authorize their presence. A New York Police Department inspector said no, according to the letter, and when the agent asked the group how they arrived, they pointed to Mexico.

The agent told them they’d crossed the border illegally and asked them to remain there while he got a supervisor and took them to an official crossing for an inspection per federal law, according to the letter. But the group disregarded the order and drove back to Mexico, according to the letter.

De Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips said the group did nothing illegal and had approval to be there.

    De Blasio thinks laws don’t apply to him. He needs to be jailed for trespassing and lying to authorities. That is the problem. Those democrats in power think they can do whatever they want, when they want to.

    I’m so tired of reading shit like this, stop reporting and complaining and do something about it! I would much rather read that he was jailed, fined or something rather than just story telling of what he did …. i’m tired of the story telling donsomething about it and press charges he isn’t above the law so wtf ….

    He entered mexico illegally the federalies should arrest him and the other mayors. Then see if anybody would want to negotiate to get them back – i vote no – leave them there – otherwise they will keep breaking the law.
