The “illegals” in question are hair dryers, but hey, it’s a start:

President Obama’s border enforcement officials prevented over 13,000 dangerous hair dryers from entering the country, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) trumpeted today.

“U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) seized thousands of hair dryers recently that were determined to constitute a “substantial product hazard” under U.S. law, for failing to have adequate immersion protection,” DHS announced. “The potentially dangerous hair dryers were identified through a nationwide targeting operation by the CBP Import Safety Commercial Targeting and Analysis Center (CTAC).”

CBP seized the hair dryers at the ports of Los Angeles (9,768 hair dryers) and Miami (3,614) because they “lacked shock protection for consumers” in the event of the hair dryers’ immersion in water.

Why doesn’t the Justice Department/DHS let Mexican drug cartels run off with these?

The dryers were discovered after somebody phoned in a tip to the DHS’s “If you see a faulty hair care product, say something” line (1-800-DRYER-ZAP).

    Someone needs to convince the US Customs and Border Protection service that MANPADS (Man-portable Air Defense Systems- shoulder-fired missiles) constitute a "substantial product hazard" under US Law, and also have grips with illegal exotic wood from Madagascar. Then maybe they would look a little more closely at things being smuggled over the southern border.

    I see a faulty administration that has all of its wires crossed. Who do I report that to?

    Hair dryers don't kill people. People kill people.

    They can have my hair dryer when they pry it from my cold, dead fingers !

  11. SignPainterGuy on February 16th, 2012 4:20 pm

    When hair dryers are outlawed, only outlaw hair dressers will have hair dryers !

    Serious question;
    Were these hair dryers made in Israel ??

    And it could be run by John Edwards.

    Of course they were only stopped after the Obama administration made sure there was no way they could get all 13,000 registered to vote.
