Addressing the Fentanyl Crisis

The most devastating aspect of this open border policy is it is only fueled the fentanyl and opiate crisis that our country is facing. We are losing over a 100,000 Americans a year to fentanyl and opiates; that is an astounding amount. By comparison, we lost 58,000 young Americans during the Vietnam War, and yet we’re losing more than that, almost double that, every single year. It’s the leading cause of death for those between the ages of 18 and 45. I can’t imagine how devastating it would be to lose a child to fentanyl. You know, I grew up, and I’ve known people that I grew up with that have died from overdoses, and that’s very sad. But that happened over my whole life. My youngest daughter, who’s 25, literally has known three people in the last year and a half that have died to fentanyl and opiates. This is a crisis that needs to come to an end. The only ones that are benefiting from our open border policy are the drug and human trafficking cartels. So this open border policy that has been pushed by President Biden and his allies, like Senator Baldwin, it needs to stop. Politicians that have been there for a long time have been silent about this fentanyl crisis. But now, because it’s political time, they’re starting to talk about it. Well, where have you been for the last decade?
