That was me. They were more polite than some of the stories I've heard. From what I've gathered so far the ones seized so far were brought stateside ~2010

Keyboard fist fights aside…

"She looked into the situation and she found that DHS was also seizing imported G Wagons. One of the lawyers, who owns a G, where she works with was affected."

If this was about a dealer in NC and what he/she/it imported, what's with the G-Wagons?

I could tell how many pints I had after I threw in the towel on my business day and went to the pub around 4, only to come back to read pages of this. We have an amendment against self incrimination so....

Why should they be at the border..?? There is just illegal immigrants, drug smugglers, fugitives, rapists and murderers there.. Those dangerous land rovers are more of a concern to the public safety and well being... Besides, those Mexicans and fugitives are bloody hard to catch... Have you seen some of those little suckers run..???

While hiding it would be the first thing I would think to do, what good would it do? You would be hiding an illegal item that there is a warrant for. Doesn't seem wise to me.

Send it to Mexico and then back across the border. No issues with that apparently

Thanks guys,

I just figured it out who is behind all these.. THE CARTELS and TERRORIST

While the entire DHS is searching for these unsafe vehicles, the Cartels are smuggling Drugs left an right and all JIHAD and AL QAIDA members are crossing the borders like and Englishman in NY

Wonder when the President will come on National Television and proudly say " I gave the order to abandon National Security Strategic Points and go chase those rusty old vehicles

I think bottom line this is a cleanup operation by CBP after they discovered their own errors in import approvals. Their public affairs is going to spin it that they are doing their job, but the truth is, this is damage control after some whistleblower brought some examples of their oversight in the customs yard to their attention.

There should never be an issue or question about legality after a vehicles is released from the yard in my opinion.

Holy Fucking Shit! I was away from my phone this afternoon and I missed most of the "discussions"!

This has been a roller coaster, to say the least!

I just notice that decisions that affect so many seem to happen overnight and when they turn out to be wrong, it takes decades to have them amended.


Who is Bill Cocks?
