Here's the latest on the ongoing border crisis and the potential vice-presidential picks for former President Donald Trump.

Border agents in Arizona continue to seize record amounts of fentanyl, methamphetamine, weapons, and ammunition at the Mariposa Port of Entry in Nogales, Arizona. In May alone, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents seized enough lethal drugs to kill 28.5 million people, according to Just The News.

Mark Morgan, former acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, has criticized President Joe Biden's executive order limiting asylum claims, saying it will only normalize border chaos. In a recent interview, Morgan said, "This is just another example of the Biden administration's failed border policies that are putting American lives at risk."

Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump is gearing up for the 2024 presidential election and is considering potential running mates. According to a recent I&I/TIPP poll, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is the top choice for Trump's vice-presidential pick, with 14% of Republican voters selecting him as their No. 1 pick. However, the poll also found that 26% of voters are still unsure who they want to see as Trump's running mate.

Other potential picks include former U.N. Ambassador and North Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, author-entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott. Trump has yet to make a final decision on his running mate, but it is clear that he is looking for someone who will provide strong political and policy backing and serve as a sounding board.

The border crisis and Trump's potential vice-presidential pick are both hot-button issues that will continue to be closely watched in the coming months. As the 2024 election approaches, it is clear that the Republican party is looking to Trump to lead the charge against the Biden administration's failed policies and restore law and order at the border.
