Our thoughts EXACTLY.
Prison is too good for those involved. They deserve something harsher. Burying them under the jail still won't bring back the dead and fix the possible long term side affects of the babies who survived.— dlmculture (@dlmculture) September 20, 2023
The long-term effects of fentanyl include changes to the brain, which is why it's alarming for children this young to have been exposed to it. Fentanyl can also cause organ damage and respiratory issues.

She can’t be charged until Biden and Mayorkas are charged for allowing the flow of fentanyl into our country.— Y’t ÆnG3Ł (@Etherealight178) September 20, 2023
You support the open borders. It’s on you.— Bridgett Eckerle (@auntbepatriot) September 20, 2023
Politics aside though, a baby has died, and 3 others were affected.
