This is part of Biden’s open border policies not being discussed enough. The amount of illegal fentanyl flooding across the southern border is up nearly 800 percent during the Biden era, according to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. CPD agrees the amount of this deadly drug entering the U.S. is skyrocketing.
According to federal law enforcement agencies, much of these illegal drugs are coming produced in China and 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.
Abbot appeared on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” last Friday to blast Biden for his lax policies that invite the drug cartels to take advantage of the lack of enforcement.
Abbott (R) said there has been a nearly “800% increase April over April” in the amount of fentanyl coming across the border apprehended by the Texas Department of Public Safety. He added that there has been enough fentanyl obtained to kill everyone in the state of New York (Which makes it more dangerous than Cuomo).
“I’ve got to tell you, Steve, there’s something else, a new dynamic about what’s going on at the border that Americans need to know about, and that is the increased apprehension of fentanyl coming across the border. Yes, there may be people coming across the border. But there [are] dangerous drugs coming across the border,” Abbott told the Fox hosts.
“For your audience who may not know, two milligrams of fentanyl is a fatal dose. And so, know this, we had…[an] almost 800% increase April over April of the amount of fentanyl that has been apprehended by the Texas Department of Public Safety. We have obtained enough fentanyl coming across the border to kill every single person in the state of New York.”
Data released by CPB in mid-April also shows a major spike in illegal fentanyl. They reported that border agents seized 2,098 pounds of fentanyl, compared with 629 pounds uncovered along the southwest border during the same period last year. That’s an over 233% increase from the year before.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse:
In 2019, nearly 50,000 people in the United States died from opioid-involved overdoses.1 The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the total “economic burden” of prescription opioid misuse alone in the United States is $78.5 billion a year, including the costs of healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment, and criminal justice involvement.
The San Diego Union-Tribune recently noted that most of this illegal fentanyl is coming from China:
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 drug through the San Diego border before dispersing throughout the U.S.
The pipeline flows in another direction, as well, direct from Chinese laboratories to U.S. customers through the mail, bringing small, hard-to-detect packages of extremely pure fentanyl to suburban doorsteps.
Trump cut down illegal immigration and human trafficking to a trickle while reducing significantly reducing the number of harmful drugs coming in through our southern border. But Biden and his team of leftists didn’t care. Biden’s policy of opening the borders and inviting illegal aliens to “come on in” is a major cause of the rapes, torture, and deaths of unaccompanied minors and adults trying to sneak across the border with the help of organized crime cartels.
While Abbott’s or CPB’s number is true, one thing is consistent, The amount of fentanyl entering the country thanks to Biden’s open border policies has skyrocketed. And the amount of dead Americans resulting from the flow of this dangerous drug will skyrocket also. All thanks to Joe Biden.
