Over the weekend, a letter covered in ricin poison and addressed to President Donald Trump was intercepted. The unidentified woman suspected of sending the letter was arrested at the Canadian border by Customs and Border Patrol agents, according to law enforcement.
The woman was reportedly arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Peace Bridge border crossing near Buffalo. The letter itself is believed to have originated in Canada, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, but the suspect’s citizenship has yet to be confirmed.

This is not the first time the threat of ricin poisoning has been encountered by the Trump administration. In 2018, the Secret Service reported another letter believed to have contained the poison, addressed to then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.
At this point in time, there has not been any other detail given on the investigation or arrest. However, officials said that the woman is expected to face federal charges.
I say they make an example of her.
