Mexican Grinch Halts Christmas Trees at Border
In one of the first actions under Operation Christmas Tree, Mexican environmental authorities have halted a shipment of Oregon-raised Douglas fir trees at the Mexico-US border.
According to the Profepa, Mexican inspectors seized a shipment of almost 2,000 Oregon-grown trees at the Colombia crossing on the Nuevo Leon-Texas border. Justifying its action, the environmental protection agency said the trees were detained after inspectors discovered live Douglas fir twig weevil larvae in the shipment. The trees will be returned to the US, the Profepa said.
Words fail me. But perhaps when we can discover illegal aliens doing something serious, like having "twig weevil larvae" in their pockets, instead of just carrying tuberculosis, meth, marijuana, cocaine and other benign things we can start "returning them to Mexico."
