Joe Biden is doing his best to ignore this crisis.
But reality is about to smack him square in the face.
And this ugly drug scandal is about to make Joe Biden’s life a living hell.
The fallout from Joe Biden’s open borders policies is not just being felt in the form of massive numbers of illegal aliens pouring over the border.
It’s now endangering the lives of Americans as Mexican drug cartels exploit Biden’s open borders to pump massive amounts of the deadly drug fentanyl into America.
Republican leaders in the House of Representatives hammered Biden for this dereliction of duty at the border.
“The amount of fentanyl seized this year increased by an alarming rate of 233 percent from the same period last year,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stated.
McCarthy explained that his trip to the border demonstrated how Joe Biden’s lax border policies provided the opening for drug cartels to ship their deadly product into America.
“If you traveled there, you would get a clear feeling and understanding. If you just look at the Rio Grande Valley, 40 percent of the agents who normally would be securing the border, are not even on the border anymore because they are pulled off the regular patrols to take care of [migrant] families and children. So with all the families and children coming in, the border is even less secure because fewer [border officers] can be there to protect us, because now they’re caring for the children,” McCarthy added.
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise echoed McCarthy’s comments saying that Border Patrol agents are pinned down at detention facilities performing babysitting duties for the record number of illegal alien kids held in cages as opposed to performing their primary task which is to secure the border.
Scalise warned that drug cartels hold operational control over the border.
“What’s happening now is the drug cartels are running America’s southern border,” Scalise stated. “They’re making millions of dollars a day off of this enterprise that was created by President Biden’s executive actions, and [U.S. border agents] don’t want to be at midnight changing diapers when instead they could be stopping fentanyl and heroin from coming into America’s border.”
Joe Biden’s plan for the border crisis is to ignore it and hope his allies in the corporate media follow suit.
That is putting American lives at risk.
90,000 Americans overdosed on fentanyl in 2020.
That was up from around 70,000 in 2019.
And with the number of shipments of fentanyl into the country skyrocketing, more Americans will lose their lives because Joe Biden threw open the border and presented the Mexican drug cartels with the opportunity of a lifetime.
