Both fentanyl seizures at the U.S.-Mexico border and fentanyl deaths in the country have skyrocketed since Joe Biden took office. In the first four months of this year, the Texas Department of Public Safety reported an 800 percent increase in the amount of fentanyl they apprehended coming across the border. U.S. Customs and Border patrol agents told KHOU TV in Houston that those 7,039 pounds of fentanyl are more than they intercepted at the border in the last three years combined.
Fentanyl is a pain killer 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine.
The San Diego Union-Tribune recently explained:
Flowing in one direction, this fentanyl pipeline runs through Mexican cartel strongholds and heads north on well-established drug trafficking routes. It funnels 80 percent of the illegal Fenanyl through the San Diego border before dispersing throughout the U.S.
The federal law enforcement agencies report that much of the illegal drugs are produced in China and enter the U.S. through Mexico. And with Biden throwing away our immigration laws, ending the building of the border wall, and leaving the doors to the countrywide open, the Mexican drug cartels are working hand-in-hand with China to flood the country with murderous, unregulated doses of the dangerous drug.
Around the country cities and states are reporting an increase in fentanyl deaths. The Washington Post recently featured families who have lost loved ones as a result. The stories are heartbreaking.
