Southern Border Crisis Now Leading to Surge in U.S. Drugs


For week after week, Republicans have spoken out about the border crisis. President Biden has a responsibility to fix the mess he created; however, since this isn’t happening, states are picking up the slack and having to do the work to stop gangs, drugs cartel, etc.

Several governors have also informed that they won’t allow President Biden to relocate illegal immigrants into their communities; multiple reports have already stated that individuals on the terrorist watchlist are now appearing at the Southern border.

Despite the inaction from the Biden administration, conservatives are continuing to speak up and let Americans know what is going on. According to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Biden’s border crisis is now leading to the worsening of the U.S. drug death epidemic.

How Biden’s border crisis fuels the drug trade

On Thursday, Leader McCarthy spoke at length about drugs at the Southern border during a press conference.

The Republican House Minority leader explained that law enforcement has seized 233% more fentanyl at the Southern border than they did during March-April 2020. McCarthy also informed that during his own visit to the border, officials told him that they’ve never witnessed as much fentanyl as they’ve seen within the past month.
