U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published statistics showing what the agency's typical day looked like in 2019, and it's insane.

Every day, CBP disrupted or seized an average of 3,707 pounds of narcotics, seized $207,356 in undeclared or illicit currency, and seized $4.3 million in products violating intellectual property rights.

The agency made an average of 2,354 apprehensions between U.S. ports of entry, 23 arrests of wanted criminals, and 790 inadmissible-person refusals at ports of entry every day in the previous year. The agency also discovered 314 pests and quarantined an average of nearly 4700 agricultural items -- plants, meats, animal byproducts, and soil -- at ports of entry each day of 2019.
