The Biden Effect.
Egg prices are so high that Americans are driving to Mexico to bring back a couple dozen on the way home.
Egg prices in Tijuana are at $3 a dozen in Tijuana. A dozen in California is up to about $8 a dozen.
This is thanks to the genius of Bidenomics. Stolen elections have consequences.
San Ysidro locals are frustrated, buying a carton of eggs that cost almost $8 at their local mini market.
People in the area said in Tijuana one carton of eggs is 50 pesos which equals nearly $3, but for those trying to smuggle those eggs into the United States, you might want to think twice before doing it.
That $3 can quickly become a fine of up to $10,000 if you fail to declare your eggs at border crossings. Federal law prohibits Americans from bringing raw eggs or poultry across the border.
According to Customs and Border Protection, that hasn’t stopped people from trying. It’s a trend that’s being noticed across the country.
In a tweet the director of field operations for CBP alerted the public about an uptick in egg seizures and reminded people crossing the border of hefty fines.
The San Diego Field Office has recently noticed an increase in the number of eggs intercepted at our ports of entry. As a reminder, uncooked eggs are prohibited entry from Mexico into the U.S. Failure to declare agriculture items can result in penalties of up to $10,000. pic.twitter.com/ukMUvyKDmL
