CBP: Bill de Blasio Illegally Crossed US-Mexico Border

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio illegally crossed the border into Mexico and then illegally crossed back into the United States during a visit last month, Border Patrol said according to Fox News.

De Blasio attempted to enter a facility holding migrant children during his visit, only to be denied during the publicity stunt.

A Border Patrol agent then reportedly caught the mayor taking photos in a restricted area. When the agent tried to call his superiors, de Blasio fled back into Mexico:

The agent then asked them if they received authorization from a Border Patrol or public affairs officer to be in the area. A New York Police Department inspector said no, according to the letter.

When asked how they entered the vicinity, the group pointed toward Mexico.

The group disregarded the agent’s order to remain at the scene because they had crossed the border illegally, and instead drove back to Mexico, the letter stated. The agent was getting a supervisor to take the group to an official crossing for an inspection per federal law.

De Blasio and his staff denied the report, claiming that they received permission to go into the area.

While the federal government cannot deport de Blasio as an American citizen, Border Patrol did contact the New York Police Department about the incident.
