Democratic leadership is still refusing to make room in the budget for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, arguing that it would somehow be “immoral” to protect American citizens this way. They’re going to have a difficult time convincing their constituents of this now, though, as Border Patrol agents just stopped a truck and found something inside that could kill 57 million people.
According to The Daily Caller, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol seized enough fentanyl to kill over 50 million people from a truck that was trying to cross the southern border into the United States, according to an investigation by “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“Well, the U.S. border patrol has made the biggest fentanyl bust in history. An enormous amount, enough fentanyl to kill — they estimate — 57 million people. That’s more than the combined population of the states of Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania. It’s a lot,” said Carlson.
“We got our hands on an internal memo from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol that details this bust. The biggest fentanyl seizure in U.S. history,” Fox News Correspondent Hillary Vaughn began. “According to the memo, four days ago in Nogales, Arizona, at the port of entry, CBP officers stopped a tractor-trailer crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S. with enough fentanyl to kill 57 million people. That’s plenty of fatal doses to wipe out the entire populations of Texas, Arizona, and New York state combined.”
She continued, “They found this under the floor of the trailer. They found 114 kilograms of fentanyl. According to the DEA, just two milligrams is considered a lethal dose. They also grabbed 179 kg of methamphetamine and one gram of fentanyl in pill form. The street value for the fentanyl over $102 million. The CBP officers arrested the smuggler, a Mexican national who attempted to drive the drugs across the border. The suspect was a part of the DHS’s trusted traveler program called FAST, that stands for free and secure trade for commercial vehicles. The program started after 9/11.”
Over the summer, a woman was caught smuggling enough fentanyl to kill 1.5 million people:
Authorities in Missouri caught a woman smuggling enough fentanyl to kill 1.5 million people as she traveled from Los Angeles to New York by bus.
Detectives with the Kansas City Police Department approached 33-year-old Evelyn C. Sanchez at a bus station Tuesday where they quickly became suspicious about her reasons for traveling to New York. A K-9 unit soon alerted the detectives to the presence of narcotics in a gray suitcase underneath the bus seat where Sanchez had been sitting, reports the New York Post.
Authorities found two packages wrapped in a large amount of plastic containing more than five pounds of the deadly synthetic opioid fentanyl. Officials with Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) St. Louis Division said the seizure was enough to make roughly “1.5 million lethal doses.” [Source: The Daily Caller]
It appears that the longer our porous southern border remains unsecured, the more brazen these drug smugglers become. Enough fentanyl to kill 1.5 million people in August, and now, enough to wipe out the populations of three U.S. states. Yet, the Democrats believe a border wall is “immoral.”
To any rational person, it is immoral to keep allowing this level of drug trafficking into the United States. It only makes sense — morally and fiscally — to protect our border and our citizens. That is President Donald Trump’s first priority and the reason he’s not giving up on the wall.
You can be sure that liberal media won’t be adequately reporting on the Border Patrol’s biggest drug bust in history, so please share this post with your friends on social media. This should NOT go unnoticed!
