担当者. カトコ: Biden 'not doing anything' to stop the flow of drugs coming across border, アメリカ人を殺す

“カルテルが知っていることの1つ: When the 境界 is secure, 彼らが薬を手に入れるのははるかに困難です. When it’s not secure, it’s a piece of cake for them. And that’s what we’re seeing now,” Katko said on Fox News’日曜日の朝の未来.” “When the president opened up the border last year and allowed people to flow into this country, it was a boon for the cartels.

Drug overdoses hit a record high of more than 100,000 deaths over a 12-month span through April, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported last week. It marks a nearly 29% rise from the deaths recorded in the same period a year earlier, and indicates it could get worse.

DRUG OVERDOSE DEATHS, FUELED BY FENTANYL, HIT RECORD HIGH IN US

It’s creating a mess in the United States all over the place,” Katko said. “以上 100,000 people in the last year have died from drug overdoses, and the vast majority had been laced with fentanyl. And the seizing of fentanyl at the border in the last year, to kill every man, woman and child in the United States, is seven times over.

It’s a crisis this administration has created and he’s not doing anything about it.

REP. KATKO SLAMS BIDEN ADMIN FOR BORDER CRISIS: ‘THEY DON’T HAVE A PLAN

Many of the overdose deaths in the last year were fueled by fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid, and the seizures of that drug at the border have increased in recent years. In fiscal year 2019, 2,804 pounds of the drug was seized. That number increased to 11,201 pounds in fiscal year 2021.

Katko noted that one city in his state, シラキュース, saw 14 過剰摂取による死亡 in one day last week.

Really every state and every city is a border state and city now because of what’s happening with these drugs coming into our country and the illegal aliens coming in, that are that are involved in criminal conduct,” 彼は言った.
