President Biden’s own Attorney General, Merrick Garland, admitted that “across the country, fentanyl is devastating families and communities.” He identified the source as the outlaw drug cartels operating in northern Mexico, yet Biden has done nothing to disrupt their operations or close our border to the traffickers who bring their deadly product to our country.
The Department of Justice describes the Mexican drug cartels as “ruthless, criminal organizations that use deception and treachery to drive addiction with complete disregard for human life.” But instead of matching its actions to those strong words, the DOJ spends its resources on political investigations of Americans who oppose the Biden regime.
Open borders and defunding police are what Democrat politicians stand for, and for a while it seemed they would get away with it. Now the fentanyl crisis may be turning Americans against illegal immigration as never before. Polls have shown a steady decline in support for Democrats as the public wakes up to the fentanyl problem, and how Democrat policies have made it worse. In the first year of the Biden Administration, there was a sharp increase of 15% in overdose deaths to a new record of 107,000. Much of that was due to fentanyl that flooded across the southern border soon after Biden opened it to illegal immigrants and the criminal cartels who profit from them.
It is impossible to separate these drug deaths from the policies that allow them. This fentanyl does not materialize out of thin air. Communist China ships precursor chemicals to Mexican drug cartels who produce the fentanyl, according to the DEA, and the cartels then send it across the border that Democrats refuse to close. The deadly fentanyl is everywhere now, and continues to pour into our country.
We know how the fentanyl is made, we know how the fentanyl gets here, and we know how to stop it. Why are Democrats unwilling to secure our border to save a hundred thousand Americans per year? The cold fact of the matter is that politicians are motivated only by constituent intervention, so it is up to you and me to spread the word that fentanyl kills and securing the border is the only way to stop it.
