The Department of Homeland Security seized nearly twice as many hard drugs at the U.S.-Mexico border during President Trump’s first term in office than in President Barack Obama’s two terms, according to a senior department official.

Senior official performing the duties of DHS Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Thursday that DHS law enforcement working at the southern border blocked 4 million pounds of hard drugs, or narcotics that do not include marijuana, from entering the United States since January 2017.

The article goes on to state the following:
