DHS STOPS THOUSANDS OF ILLEGAL HAIRDRYERS FROM SNEAKING INTO THE U.S.
We can all sleep well tonight, America. In a major nationwide operation, the Department of Homeland Security, whose website boasts, “Securing America’s Borders,” has stopped thousands of “illegals” from sneaking into the United States. That’s the good news.
The bad news? Those illegals were hair dryers. Yes, folks, the Obama Regime has announced that border enforcement officials recently prevented over 13,000 dangerous hair dryers from entering the country, which it trumpeted on the Customs and Border Protection website:
“U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) seized thousands of hair dryers recently that were determined to constitute a “substantial product hazard” under U.S. law for failing to have adequate immersion protection. The potentially dangerous hair dryers were identified through a nationwide targeting operation by the CBP Import Safety Commercial Targeting and Analysis Center (CTAC).”
No word on whether the hair dryers were read their Miranda rights, if they will be tried in civilian courts, or where they are being held.
CBP seized the hair dryers at the ports of Los Angeles (9,768 hair dryers) and Miami (3,614 hair dryers) because they “lacked shock protection for consumers” in the event of the hair dryers’ immersion in water.
Allen Gina, CBP’s assistant commissioner for public trade, heaped praise on the CPB agents who helped seize the “undocumented” hair dryers: “The concerted targeting efforts of CTAC and the vigilance of CBP officers at our ports of entry will help ensure that products like hair dryers are safe for consumers and that substandard products from overseas do not reach store shelves.”
It’s comforting to know that
Barney Obama is finally protecting our nation’s borders. Now, if he would only put his bullet in his gun.
Would Biden be Gomer – or Otis?
