According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio broke federal law. More specifically, he and his security detail illegally crossed into Mexico during a June visit to Texas — after being denied permission to cross the area earlier that day. De Blasio denies willfully breaking the law and continued his attacks on President Trump. But the USBP isn’t backing down in their claims. If it’s ultimately verified, it’s more proof in the case for liberals’ notion that they’re above the law. And it’s yet another demonstration for why Hillary Clinton lost the election.
Here’s more from Fox News…
A letter from U.S. Customs and Border Protection emerged stating the mayor and his security detail illegally crossed over the U.S.-Mexico border during a visit to Texas last month.
During a news conference Wednesday at the Marcy Houses in Brooklyn, de Blasio called the allegations “absolutely ridiculous” and an attempt by the Trump administration to create a distraction amid the immigration debate involving illegal immigrant children.
“[This] is another way to distract [the American people] from an inhumane policy,” de Blasio said about the letter being released about two weeks after it was issued.
“Threats by the Trump administration will not stop me from speaking out and won’t stop my fellow mayors from speaking out,” the mayor said.
In a letter sent on June 25 and obtained by Fox News, CBP said de Blasio and his security detail, run by the New York Police Department, illegally crossed the border near El Paso on June 21. The mayor and his security detail were spotted taking photos by a Border Patrol agent on the Rio Grande River flood plain south of the Tornillo, Texas, Port of Entry.
They had been denied earlier in the day entrance to a holding facility for immigrant children, which de Blasio said on Wednesday “made no sense.”
