How can I get back the money that was seized from me at the border crossing from Mexicali into Lexicon ?

Joshua Tree, CA |

Sept 2013 the border patrol seized money that I told them I had . It was $ 19 , 000 and I did not know that you could not bring more than $ 10 , 000 across the border . I gave them documentation proof that was my money . After trying to talk to them several times and was told not to call as it would not speed the process . I just received Feb 2013 a letter saying they were not giving the money back as I did not show " adequate account of source of the income " This money came from a property I sold and money my parents have wired to me on a monthly basis plus I did odd job in Mexico . I am a US citizen . I am not able to hold down a job and this is all the money I had .
