No matter how much Biden and his handlers deny it, the southern border is a free for all.
The number of migrants crossing into the United States continues to skyrocket compared to last year.
Unfortunately, not every migrant is coming here with good intentions and striving for a better life.
The massive overload has caused a dramatic increase in child trafficking and drug smuggling.
One drug that has been a nightmare for American citizens is fentanyl.
It has played a major role in the opioid crisis and continues to devastate American families.
It’s the real pandemic in America.

With Biden’s horrendous border policies, the amount of smuggled fentanyl is at an all-time high.
Although Border Patrol has seized much of it, large quantities manage to sneak through.
Exactly how much has been seized?
Through April, fiscal year 2021 has already topped fiscal year 2020.
For reference, fiscal year 2021 started last October.
Here’s the latest:
They've apprehended over 30K migrants & 900 criminals.
With the increase in dangerous drugs coming into TX — they’ve apprehended enough fentanyl to kill every person in the state of NY.

More fentanyl has been seized by CBP so far in 2021 than in all of 2020.
Biden’s border crisis is leading to a boom in criminal activity, and it’s making the opioid crisis worse.

Joe Biden's policies and Kamala Harris' leadership continues to place our Border Patrol Agents and border communities in harm's way.
The Republican message is clear and unified: Immediate action must be taken to end this border security crisis.https://t.co/05ElUFFT74

Biden's border crisis is also a drug crisis and so far, he's doing nothing to address it.
The longer the President refuses to take any of this seriously, the more American lives he endangers. https://t.co/PzYS63CDY3

ABC News shared these details:
As of April, 6,494 pounds of fentanyl were seized by authorities at the border, compared to 4,776 pounds in all of 2020. In fact, fentanyl seizures have been increasing since 2018.
Fentanyl is an incredibly potent opioid that is 50-100 times stronger than morphine, according to Dr. Darien Sutton, an emergency medicine physician based in Los Angeles and ABC News contributor.
“People don’t realize how dangerous it is,” he said.
As a physician, Sutton administers fentanyl in micrograms and said that the more than 6,000 pounds seized by the CBP is incomprehensible.
“When you talk about that amount, how many communities and people that will affect and how many deaths that will be associated with (more than 6,000 pounds of fentanyl) you can’t even comprehend it just because it’s not fathomable,” he said.
The Blaze also reported:
Interceptions of cocaine by Border Patrol agents were up 41% in April compared to March, and seizures of heroin skyrocketed 97% in the same time period.
Also in the recent CBP news release, the border agency stated that its agents encountered 178,622 persons attempting entry along the Southwest border in April, a 3% increase over March 2021.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is sounding the alarm regarding the alarming boom of fentanyl being trafficked across the U.S. southern border. The Republican governor revealed there had been a whopping 800% increase of fentanyl seizures at the border by the Texas Department of Public Safety this April compared to the same month last year.
“I gotta tell you, there’s a new dynamic about what’s going on at the border that Americans need to know about, and that is increased apprehension of fentanyl coming across the border,” Abbott said during an interview with Fox News on May 14. “Yes, there may be people coming across, but there are dangerous drugs coming across the border.
“We have obtained enough fentanyl coming across the border to kill every single person in the state of New York,” Abbott stated. “This is a very deadly situation happening on the border.
“The Biden administration had better wake up,” Abbott said. “Because of what Texas is doing on the border, it’s Texas that is securing the border. We want Biden to pay for it.”
Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is similar to morphine but is 80 to 100 times more potent, according to the Drug Enforcement Agency. “Two milligrams of fentanyl can be lethal depending on a person’s body size, tolerance and past usage,” the DEA states.
There were more than 81,000 drug overdose deaths in the United States in the 12 months ending in May 2020, the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded in a 12-month period, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
