Greene seemed to suggest that the device was part of a broader effort to harm Americans.
“Not only are the Cartels murdering Americans everyday through drugs and crime, but now they are planting bombs on our land in our country,” Greene said.
“Our US military needs to take action against the Mexican Cartels. End this Cartel led war against America!”

“A high level CBP source tells me that this was a fake, and was actually filled with dirt,” Melugin said.
“It was discovered by Border Patrol agents in Rio Grande City in the RGV, and while it appeared nefarious, I’m told it did not contain any explosives.”
