The Protection of the border, says NYC mayor crossed border illegally

WASHINGTON – the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, arguing that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio illegally crossed from Mexico to the US during a visit to the El Paso, Texas, area in June, an accusation to the office of the mayor flatly denies.

In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, Customs and Border Protection, says de Blasio and his security detail were on the Rio Grande River floodplain south of the Tornillo Port of Entry, during a June 21 trip to the border. The letter says a Border Patrol agent asked why they were there and told them to stay, but that the mayor’s entourage instead drove back to Mexico.

De Blasio’s spokesman says that the security detail was the direct approval and under the supervision of the Border Patrol supervisor.
