Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Friday made the stunning claim that border patrol officials have seized enough fentanyl at the U.S.-Mexico border to kill the entire population of New York State, nearly 20 million people.
Abbott made the claim during an interview on Fox News, slamming the Biden administration and claiming federal officials “either don’t have a clue what’s going on or they are purposefully misleading their fellow Americans.”
“I gotta tell you, there’s a new dynamic about what’s going on at the border that Americans need to know about,” he said, “and that is increased apprehension of fentanyl coming across the border. Yes, there may be people coming across but there are dangerous drugs coming across the border.”
“We had almost an 800% increase April over April of the amount of fentanyl that has been apprehended by the Texas Department of Public Safety,” he said. “We have obtained enough fentanyl coming across the border to kill every single person in the state of New York.”
Fentanyl is an extremely powerful opioid the usage of which has been growing in the U.S. in recent years and which has concurrently been responsible for a high number of overdoses.
CHAOS AT THE BORDER: ‘If We Seize Even 5 Percent Of Fentanyl Pills Coming Across Border, We’re Lucky’ Border Patrol Union Says
The Biden regime’s lawless border policy has had deadly consequences. More than 1.7 million illegal immigrants were detained in Fiscal Year 2021, according to the CBP. The former CBP Commissioner said that the United States has ‘lost control of the southwest border’. In November, 95,000 illegal immigrants were released in to the United States with no court date. This week, the border patrol union said that they are lucky to seize 5% of fentanyl pills coming across the border. Overdose deaths topped 100,000 in the United States in 2021 according to the CDC. The Epoch Times Reports–
“Border Patrol agents are so busy processing large groups of illegal aliens, that in one Arizona area only four agents are available to patrol a 150-mile section of the border.
“Now that 150 miles of border normally takes about 75 to 90 agents—we had four agents out there,” said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council. Judd testified at an unofficial House hearing at FreedomWorks in Washington on Feb. 1.
“Cartels control the border right now,” Judd said. “They dictate to us what our operations are going to be. That should never happen.”
The amount of drugs being seized has correspondingly plummeted, according to Customs and Border Protection statistics.
“If we seize even 5 percent of what’s coming across the border, we’re lucky,” Judd said, referring to a question about fentanyl pills. “And if there’s nobody there to detect you and apprehend you, the cartels are going to push it through between the ports of entry when they know that there is absolutely no chance that we’re going to apprehend that narcotic.”
Not only is Biden refusing to enforce the immigration laws of our country, he planned to give millions of illegal immigrants amnesty in his “Build Back Better” plan. Despite the bill failing, Vice President Kamala Harris has said that amnesty is still at the top of her priority list.
CHAOS AT THE BORDER: Cartels Have ‘Operational Control’ Of The US Border, Rep. Chip Roy
The Biden regime’s lawless border policy has had deadly consequences. More than 1.7 million illegal immigrants were detained in Fiscal Year 2021, according to the CBP. The former CBP Commissioner said that the United States has ‘lost control of the southwest border’.
Upon taking office, Biden issued a 100 day halt on most deportations, stopped construction of President Trump’s border wall, and ended his “remain in Mexico” policy. President Trump saw illegal immigration reach a 17 year low during his administration. “Mayorkas has eviscerated our interior immigration enforcement apparatus—meaning that once an illegal alien enters our country, they become virtually impossible to remove,” said Matthew Tragesser at the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Now, its been revealed that Biden’s reckless border policy is responsible for a massive influx of deadly narcotics in to our country. The Epoch Times Reports–
“Mexican cartels are making billions of dollars from drug trafficking, human smuggling, and exploiting the U.S. border, said Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas).
Border Patrol agents apprehended more than 1.3 million illegal immigrants crossing into Texas from Mexico in 2021. Hundreds of thousands more weren’t captured. Seizures of the deadly synthetic opioid, fentanyl, have sharply increased, as have overdose deaths in the United States.
“We have 100,000 Americans die from opioid poisonings. They’re not really overdoses—they’re poisonings,” Roy told NTD’s Capitol Report on Jan. 28.
“China is moving it through Mexico, cartels are making money, China is getting empowered, America’s getting hammered—all because this administration refuses to do its job of securing the border.”
The chemicals to make fentanyl are produced in China and shipped to Mexico, where counterfeit pills are manufactured, heroin is spiked, and other products are laced before being sent across the southern border.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported a 1,066 percent increase in fentanyl seized at south Texas ports of entry during fiscal year 2021.”
CHAOS AT THE BORDER: ‘We Have Lost Control of the Southwest Border’ Former CBP Commissioner Says
The Biden regimes reckless immigration policy continues to cause chaos at the border. More than 1.7 million illegal immigrants were detained in Fiscal Year 2021, according to the CBP. Last month, the CBP revealed that arrests at the border for the month of November hit an all-time high, with 173,620 arrests made. That is the highest for the month of November since immigration arrests have been recorded. This week, a former Customs and Border Protection Commissioner spoke out about the dire situation at the border. The Epoch Times Reports–
The southwest border during President Joe Biden’s first year in office reached historic levels of illegal crossings, pulling agents off the front line and leaving large swaths of the border unpatrolled. Drugs, especially fentanyl, flowed in, and overdose deaths are at an all-time high.
“What we’re experiencing now on the southwest border is a complete, utter catastrophe,” Mark Morgan, former acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), which oversees Border Patrol, told The Epoch Times on Jan. 7.
“We have lost control of the southwest border.”
Morgan served as the Commissioner of the CBP from 2019-2021 under President Trump’s administration.
Last year, Border Patrol agents detected but didn’t catch an additional 600,000 illegal border crossers, known as “gotaways,” Morgan further said.
“That’s the equivalent to the size of the state of Vermont,” he said. “Think about the bad people that are in that 600,000 that got away.”
Upon taking office, Biden issued a 100 day halt on most deportations, stopped construction of President Trump’s border wall, and ended his “remain in Mexico” policy. President Trump saw illegal immigration reach a 17 year low during his administration. “Mayorkas has eviscerated our interior immigration enforcement apparatus—meaning that once an illegal alien enters our country, they become virtually impossible to remove,” said Matthew Tragesser at the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
