It’s out in the open now.
Democrats have reason to worry.
Joe Biden’s drug problem has Nancy Pelosi worried about the 2022 elections.
Under Joe Biden, America’s lost operational control of the southern border.
In the month of April, 178,000 illegal aliens were stopped at the border.
That was the largest number of border apprehensions in 20 years.
To make matters worse, drugs are pouring into the country as cartels take advantage of Joe Biden’s lax border policies.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott told “Fox and Friends” host Steve Doocy that April 2021 saw an 800 percent increase in the amount of fentanyl intercepted by law enforcement compared to April 2020 when Donald Trump was in office.
Abbott revealed cartels were trying to smuggle enough fentanyl into America to kill all 19 million residents of New York State.
“I’ve got to tell you, Steve, there’s something else, a new dynamic about what’s going on at the border that Americans need to know about, and that is the increased apprehension of fentanyl coming across the border. Yes, there may be people coming across the border. But there [are] dangerous drugs coming across the border. For your audience who may not know, two milligrams of fentanyl is a fatal dose. And so, know this, we had…[an] almost 800% increase April over April of the amount of fentanyl that has been apprehended by the Texas Department of Public Safety. We have obtained enough fentanyl coming across the border to kill every single person in the state of New York,” Abbott declared.
Polls show immigration and the crisis at the border are the weakest issue cluster for Joe Biden.
Much of that is due to Biden rolling back Donald Trump’s successful immigration policies leading to a free-for-all at the border as smugglers hustle record numbers of illegal aliens to America.
But an open border also means more drugs flowing into the country which leads to more ruined lives and deaths.
In 2019, over 36,000 Americans overdosed from synthetic opioids, with the vast majority of those deaths attributed to fentanyl.
Republicans are hoping to make the catastrophe at the border a focal point of the 2022 midterm elections.
The GOP needs to flip just six seats in the House of Representatives and one in the Senate to win back majorities in both houses of Congress.
Massive amounts of deadly drugs streaming into the country on Joe Biden’s watch could put Democrats on the defensive.
Crime is up in Democrat-run cities and a drug epidemic could provide Republicans an opening to rerun the law-and-order attacks that helped the GOP win 15 seats in the House in the 2020 elections when all the “experts” expected Democrats to win 15 to 20 seats.
And that could spell the end of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer running Congress.
