Let’s all stand and applaud the benevolent Democrats who want affirmation for “working across the aisle” to target fentanyl producers.
Today, we are working across the aisle to announce the first legislation to create powerful sanction tools to target illicit fentanyl producers in China, Mexico, & worldwide
That’s because we agree on a very important thing:
Combating the opioid epidemic https://t.co/eGrDdIcTAA
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) April 4, 2019
We’re sure Senate minority leader Schumer is aware of where the largest fentanyl bust in U.S. history took place.
You guessed it, the southern border.
Of course it’s a national emergency.
-Largest fentanyl bust in history, enough to kill 57 million Americans
-The caravans keep coming
-Angel families losing loved ones to violent criminals
What will it take for the Left to acknowledge the crisis on our border? #DoWhatWeSaid

Yet, Sen. Schumer and his Democrat colleagues cannot bring themselves to secure a border across which illegal drugs, such as fentanyl, are regularly smuggled.
Chuck, what are you doing about the border? https://t.co/1hcU6BL5pm

Schumer touts targeting Mexican producers of illicit fentanyl producers, but what good does that do when they are able to illegally flee the country and come into the United States with the deadly material?
Each week, approximately 300 Americans die from heroin overdoses, of which nearly 90% comes across our southern border. It’s time for Democrats to realize we have a crisis at the border. https://t.co/KORobwLIyU

Thank you to local, state, and federal law enforcement officers in Project Parkersburg for your hard work with this. We must make a change – we need to secure our southern border and bring an end to the horrible drugs pouring into our community. https://t.co/MPmUhU3Qlr

272,000 border apprehensions in 2019. Millions of pounds of drugs seized. Untold numbers of human trafficking. Oh but the real tragedy…..
Get a grip America.

Democrats spend and spend when they get control of the purse strings, but they can’t bring themselves to allocate a few billion dollars to do something vitally important for the safety and well-being of American citizens.
