Let’s all stand and applaud the benevolent Democrats who want affirmation for “working across the aisle” to target fentanyl producers.

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.

Yet, Sen. Schumer and his Democrat colleagues cannot bring themselves to secure a border across which illegal drugs, such as fentanyl, are regularly smuggled.

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?

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.
