The deadliest drug epidemic in American history!

Bryan Preston reports in PJ Media,
Biden's Open Border Is Fueling the 'Deadliest Drug Epidemic in U.S. History'
The Washington Free Beacon reports,
A porous border and weak security ties with Mexico have resulted in large influxes of fentanyl, a highly addictive and lethal drug, across the southern border. Between October 2020 and March 2021, customs agents seized more than 2.5 tons of fentanyl—a more than 300 percent year-on-year increase. Since 2019, cartels have enjoyed soaring profits due to increased demand for the drug in the United States. More than 90,000 Americans overdosed on illicit drugs last year.
Preston adds,
most fentanyl that originates in China enters the United States through Mexico via the cartels. Opening the border should have been anticipated to make it far easier to move fentanyl into the country.
It’s possible that fentanyl is an instrument of China’s foreign policy. China’s communist government controls or strongly influences nearly all businesses of any size throughout the country. It’s impossible that the Chinese government is unaware of the fentanyl trade or that it is doing all it can to stop it. Since 2014 the highly addictive, very powerful, and very profitable drug has become ubiquitous on American streets, causing havoc and tens of thousands of deaths.
2020 was a terrible year for fatal drug overdoses in the United States, setting a new record of over 70,000 of them. Fentanyl alone was responsible for about 37,000 fatal drug overdoses in the U.S. in 2019, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. George Floyd, whose death in custody of the Minneapolis police in May 2020 caused riots and unrest that continue, had a large amount of fentanyl in his system when he died, according to the coroner’s report. His death was ruled a homicide and former police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted in the case, but fentanyl was one of the contributing factors in his death.
It’s impossible to escape the conclusion that the Biden White House is aware of the exploding fentanyl trade and China’s role in it, and the border’s role in escalating the crisis — which President Trump named a crisis and tried to stop — and doesn’t care. It refuses even to describe the border chaos in any accurate terms. Kamala Harris is supposedly Biden’s appointed border czar, but she has yet to visit the border and in her 41 days on that job has not even given a press conference on it. When pressed to discuss it, Harris blames the border chaos not on her and her boss’s policies, but on “climate change.”
Biden and Harris may be that stupid, but evil is the better bet here. They have access to information most Americans never see. They have chosen to black out media coverage of the border as it continues to spiral out of control.
