PHOENIX (AP) - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials in Nogales say they've made their biggest fentanyl bust ever.

The agency says it will provide details Thursday during a late morning news conference at the Mariposa border crossing in Nogales, Arizona.

A wall wouldn't have made any difference.

It's so unlike you to draw conclusions without having any details...

I have details. It was seized at the port of entry.

The details you don't have relate to all the fentanyl they didn't seize. The fentanyl that didn't come through a port of entry.

It's being brought in by those same terrorists who keep dropping those prayer towels at the border because their arms are too full of illegal drugs to hold everything.

True, but I know you don't mean it to be.

Are you denying that ranchers on or near the border are finding such things? Are you just don't care?

No, what I'm saying is that they are finding discarded bits and pieces of clothing the same as you could probably find anywhere in the southwestern desert that people are claiming to be prayer towels.

What you are saying is "Yes, I'm denying that ranchers on or near the border are finding such things."

If they say they are finding prayer towels and you are saying they are not, you are denying they are finding such things. Is that really that hard to understand? Just say it. Are you embarrassed to admit what you think?

I'm not denying they are finding things. I am denying that what they are finding are prayer towels instead of discarded sweaters, towels, blankets and other clothing items you will find all over the desert. You appear to be implying that I am claiming that the ranchers are making these stories up. What I'm saying is that someone is misidentifying the clothing items they have found. Where is the documented evidence of a prayer towel? Does it have a label saying "Made in Mecca" on it? Does it really make sense that someone who is religious enough to lug a prayer towel hundreds of miles through the desert then thinks so little of it that he or she discards it the minute they get over the border?

Recent articles refer to "towels." Politifact investigated this claim in 2014 after a Breitbart article and found it "rugs on fire." I haven't seen any more recent alleged documentation.

No. Recent interview references rugs, not towels. Nothing towelly since awhile back. You should update your source.

Well, I have seen them referred to as prayer towels. But, Trump is calling them prayer rugs, without any substantiation, so I'll go along with non-existent prayer rugs as opposed to non-existent prayer towels.

Try googling prayer towels. That article references rugs too. Regardless of veracity of claims, where are you getting TOWELS?
