GROWING THREAT OF LETHAL DRUGS
In 2022, the Drug Enforcement Agency “seized enough fentanyl to kill every American — more than 50 million fentanyl-laced pills and over 10,000 pounds of fentanyl powder,” CBS News reported in February.
Those seizures “represent more than 379 million potentially deadly doses of fentanyl, enough to kill every single American, notes the DEA. “Fentanyl is the deadliest drug threat facing this country. It is a highly addictive man-made opioi
d that is 50 times more potent than heroin. Just two milligrams of fentanyl, the small amount that fits on the tip of a pencil, is considered a potentially deadly dose.”
“The rise in fentanyl-related overdose deaths in the U.S. has fueled a national conversation and a redoubling of the government's efforts to curb its smuggling,” reported CBS correspondents Nicole Sganga and Camilo Montoya-Galvez. In 2021, 90% of some 80,000 opioid-related deaths involved fentanyl, federal statistics show.
Most fentanyl is being smuggled into the U.S. along the southern border, often in vehicles driven by American citizens, as cartels and other criminal groups in Mexico have turned the production of the synthetic opioid into a secret industry that has become the primary source of fentanyl in the U.S., according to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA),” the CBS report added.
In fiscal year 2022, 84% of the 14,104 pounds of fentanyl seized along the Mexican border were detected by officers at ports of entry overseen by the Office of Field Operations, a CBP branch, according to government data.
In addition, the “Border Patrol, which apprehends migrants who enter the U.S. illegally, seized 2,200 pounds of fentanyl, or 16% of all fentanyl seized along the southern border, in fiscal year 2022.
GROWING THREAT OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING
With Biden refusing to protect America’s borders, and millions of people surging into the country illegally, human traffickers have more and more opportunities to seize and exploit vulnerable women and children.
Slavery is alive and well today all across the world, and it comes in the form of human trafficking, according to the Texas Public Policy Foundation. EVERY form of human trafficking is outragious brutality, and EVERY victim deserves to be rescued, rehabilitated, and cared for. The ONE best way in which the United States can help curb human trafficking is to improve border security. In the U.S., immigrants, especially immigrant women, make up the largest portion of trafficking victims.”
Studies done by the Latin American branch of the Coalition Against Trafficking In Women estimate that 60% of Latin American children who set out to cross the border alone or with smugglers have been caught by the cartels and are being abused in child pornography or drug trafficking.
In June 2022, Congressman Michael McCaul, the Texas Republican, spoke out when 48 migrants who had entered the U.S. illegally were found dead in an abandoned tractor trailer in San Antonio, two more migrants died later at the hospital, and 14 more were hospitalized for heat stroke and exhaustion.
The U.S. leaky southern border combined with inadequate resources for proper border security enforcement has created the perfect cocktail for illegal human trafficking . . . and this resulted in this senseless loss of human life,” McCaul said. “I have been fighting to secure our border and stop the scourge of human trafficking since coming to Congress, but the Biden administration's policies are wreaking havoc. What will it take . . . how many more deaths like this . . .
before President Biden and his so-called border czar, Vice President Harris, finally take substantive action to secure our border?”
McCaul has written and passed several pieces of legislation to fight human trafficking. He now serves as chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
After nearly 3,000 Americans were murdered by radical Islamist terrorists on 9/11, Democrats and Republicans came together to say, “Never again.”
We saw a serious bipartisan effort to protect homeland security and close gaps that terrorists could use to enter the U.S. and hit us even harder.
It cost a lot of money but Washington made travel by land, sea and air safer from those here in the Middle East and elsewhere who mean to do us harm.
But what will Biden and his fellow Democrats say if and when new terror attacks come by jihadists and other maniacs who just walk into the U.S. across the Mexican border?
How will they say they couldn’t see what was coming when they stand before Judge Jesus at the Great White Throne Judgment (Rev.20:11-15)?
What will they say to the families of victims when they did little or nothing to fulfill their constitutional duty to preserve, protect and defend the American people from all threats, foreign and domestic?
We do need to pray for our leaders. It should be a big part of our prayer time with our Great God! https://www.worldlychaos.org/w_c_is_america_prayer_for_leaders.htm
Let’s pray, too that this wishy-washy President Biden and his team wake up fast, changes course, and sends far more than 1,500 active-duty soldiers to the Mexican border. That would at least be a start in the right direction!
AMERICA . . . Do You KNOW the Trouble You Are In?
