Secret Service Agents Hospitalized After Exposure To ‘Powdery Substance’ – Market Subset News

Two Secret Service Uniformed Division officers were hospitalized after making a traffic stop in Washington, D.C., and being exposed to a white powdery substance.

“Shortly before 11a.m., Secret Service Uniformed Division made a traffic stop in the 1700 Blk of New York Avenue. During the stop, officers came in contact with a powdery substance believed to be suspected narcotics. One individual taken into custody and officers are being evaluated,” the Secret Service’s Chief of Communications Anthony Guglielmi tweeted.


CBS News reporter Nicole Sganga later reported that the officers were exposed to “horse tranquilizer.”

“Officers with the Secret Service Uniformed Division made a traffic stop in the 1700 Block of New York Avenue in Washington, D.C. around 11 a.m. Tuesday. During the stop, officers came in contact with what USSS spokesman Anthony Guglielmi described as a ‘powdery substance believed to be suspected narcotics,’” Fox News reported.

The incident occurred about 2 miles from the U.S. Naval Observatory, which is where Vice President Kamala Harris lives. One individual was taken into custody and officers were evaluated.

Harris has also been dealing with busloads of migrants being shipped to her residence in Washington, D.C.

Last month, Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent another busload of around 50 undocumented immigrants to the residence of Vice President Kamala Harris on Saturday. And six more buses of migrants, sent from El Paso, Port Authority officials, arrived in New York City.

“The D.C. bus carried people mostly from Venezuela, including a one-month-old baby. Aid workers quickly whisked the migrants away to a local shelter,” the report said.

Now that the border crisis has literally come to Harris’ front door, she may have to address it.

It was Sunday when an interview with Harris aired on the NBC show “Meet The Press,” where she insisted that the border is secure.

“Final topic here. Since we’re here in Texas, I want to ask you about the border. Would you call the border secure?” host Chuck Todd said.

“I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do, the first request we made: pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship. The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular, over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed,” the vice president.

“We’re going to have two million people cross this border for the first time ever. You’re confident this border’s secure?” the host said.

“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration. But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years. We also have to put into place a law and a plan for a pathway for citizenship for the millions of people who are here and are prepared to do what is legally required to gain citizenship. We don’t have that in place because people are playing politics in a state like this and in Congress. By the way, you want to talk about bipartisanship on an issue that at one time was a bipartisan issue both in terms of Republican senators and even presidents,” she said.


But this week Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent more than 100 immigrants from Eagle Pass, Texas to a place near the vice president’s residence at Harris’s Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.

And one of the migrants who was sent there contradicted what the vice president said.

“It’s open, not closed,” the man said.

“Everybody believes that the border is open,” he said.

“It’s open because we enter. We come in, free, no problem,” he said as he admitted, “Yeah, we came illegally, not legal.”

Harris, appointed so-called ‘border czar’ by President Joe Biden shortly after the two of them took office, got a migrant-related surprise early Thursday morning.

Two buses containing between 75 and 100 migrants from Eagle Pass, Texas, who had crossed into the U.S. illegally were sent to the VP’s residence by GOP Gov. Greg Abbott, Fox News reported.

“The group includes migrants from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia, and Mexico. Multiple migrants, asked by Fox News Digital, said they think the border is open, contrary to what Harris said Sunday during an interview,” the outlet noted further.

The arrival of the illegal migrants outside Harris’ residence came just hours after Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis followed through on his vow to send illegal migrants to ritzy Martha’s Vineyard, where the Obamas have a home, among many other notable wealthy Americans.
