“Fentanyl plague requires securing our border”, San Jose Mercury – Aug. 4, 2021
Deaths in the USA from fentanyl overdoses have now overtaken covid mortality, according to the analysis of the CDC, Thomas Homan, appointed head of Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2017, and other experts. Most of the fentanyl entering the country is made in China and is brought across the border by Mexican cartels.
Securing the southern border is thus important to interdiction of cartel drug trafficking and human trafficking, but has also become one of the nation’s greatest forms of mortality via fentanyl deaths. Let’s protect our border like most civilized countries.
