Where is this coming from? It’s supplied by China and coming across the Mexican border. Is there anyone who doubts this other than the NYT? Are any of the alphabet networks reporting this fact? No and no.
Fentanyl seizures by Customs and Border Protection in Arizona have skyrocketed over the past two years. Last November, Border Patrol agents at a highway checkpoint found in a vehicle enough fentanyl to kill more than 200,000 people. Seizures are no longer the rare occurrence they were several years ago.
The fentanyl boom in recent years represents a third wave of the opioid epidemic, following first an increase in the abuse of prescription painkillers around the turn of the century and then a rise in heroin use. But the fentanyl phase is different in that it involves an international operation of people in multiple countries working together to produce and transport the drugs and then secretly shuttle the profits across U.S. borders.
Chinese money launderers and fentanyl-makers have gone into business with Mexican drug cartels, teaming up to make billions of dollars a year trafficking the powerful opioid that is killing thousands of people in the U.S.
The fentanyl ingredients are sent from labs in Wuhan, China, to Mexico, where the final product is made. It is then sneaked over the U.S.-Mexico border and dispersed nationwide, often put into other drugs in an attempt to hook a user of meth or cocaine on this new substance.
Through the decades, federal law enforcement at the U.S.-Mexico border has seized millions of pounds of drugs that cartels attempted to smuggle into the U.S. Nearly all of the drugs seized were marijuana, but marijuana seizures have significantly declined in recent years. Unlike marijuana, fentanyl can be produced year-round and is more profitable, part of the reason cartels are abandoning marijuana.
I wonder why the government doesn’t react to this to put a stop to it. Still, why aren’t they doing something about it?
I get that the current group in charge is trying to undo anything that the last regime put into place, but how about trying to protect the US citizen’s.
Here is the amount of Fentanyl it takes to kill someone. They are shipping in tons of the stuff.
Can we stop this please? Protect us from the CCP and the Mexican Cartels.
