Deadly drugs are surging into the US through the southern border

One of the primary fears that is haunting the American public today is the surge of illicit drugs that comes with the uncontrollable wave of immigrants crossing the southern border. As gangs and criminals try to blend in with tens of thousands of foreigners, authorities are having a harder time filtering who could get in and these evil men are taking advantage of the situation.

Once drugs enter the United States, the future of our children and our great nation will be at risk. Dangerous substances such as the mind-destroying methamphetamine and the deadly fentanyl will be very easy to come by in any street across various neighborhoods. 

Earlier this month, the Customs and Border Protection seized $1.2 million worth of cocaine and fentanyl, a meager quantity compared to the total amount of drugs being dropped nationwide on a daily basis.

“Just the amount of fentanyl just apprehended by the Texas Department of Public Safety just this year is more than enough to kill every man, woman and child in the states of Texas, California and New York,” said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. 

Recently, the cartels have been lacing other drugs with fentanyl without the knowledge of the users. Spiking marijuana or heroin with the aforementioned drug will hook the drug addicts faster, making them spiral into an endless cycle of craving until it eventually leads to their death.

“I wasn’t aware I was using fentanyl. What’s happening is they’re cutting everything up, all the drugs that are coming across from Mexico. They’re all being cut with fentanyl so that (you) like them stronger,” a recovering addict told Mexico border and immigration news site Border Report.

In his recent article, Andrew “Art” Arthur, a Resident Fellow in Law and Policy for the Center for Immigration Studies, revealed some statistics that prove the detrimental effects of Biden’s bad border policies on our country. 

“Look at the drug seizure statistics in the sector. In August 2020, agents there seized 35 pounds of hard drugs: Cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine. In August 2020? Zero pounds of those narcotics and stimulants. They nabbed one pound of marijuana, likely as much as your local “dispensary” sells in a day,” Arthur wrote.

“This fiscal year, though, agents in Del Rio have seized just short of 255 pounds of heroin and meth. Some 66 percent of those seizures (168 pounds) occurred between November 2019 and March. Of the almost 215,000 migrant apprehensions in Del Rio sector thus far in FY 2021, just 28 percent of them took place during those months. Do you see a pattern? I do,” Arthur elaborated.
