(AmericanProsperity.com) – The United States is focused on battling COVID-19, citing the increasing death toll, while officials seemingly ignore another rising statistic in America: drug overdoses. Drugs have become a significant problem throughout the country, but Kamala Harris has remained quiet on the matter despite much of the smuggling coming from the southern border.
Drug overdoses have increased dramatically over the past two years, with deaths nearly doubling, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hitting over 100,000 for the first time ever. The biggest culprit to the sharp increase is the synthetic opioid Fentanyl. According to the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), 42% of opioid pills tested contained two milligrams of the deadly drug, enough to be a lethal dose. So how is this Vice President Harris’s problem?
Aside from the fact that she’s the country’s vice president and must protect America’s people, a lot of Fentanyl comes from drug traffickers south of the border. According to the DEA, drug smugglers often distribute synthetic opioids by kilogram (kg); the administration claims just one kg is enough to kill 500,000 people. So one would think securing the border would be a top priority for the so-called border czar. But, unsurprisingly, it’s not.
What Does Harris Think?
The numbers don’t seem to faze the vice president despite drugs’ impact on the Black community. Instead, Harris is focused on Latin and Central America, where many immigrants originate from, to address the “root causes” of why they want to come to the United States.
Don’t worry, though — help is on the way for those suffering from drug use, as Harris promotes the idea of sending Americans struggling with drug addiction “safe-smoking kits” in the name of racial equality. Meanwhile, she’ll invest in the lives of foreign countries and continue to allow drug traffickers to smuggle deadly drugs across the southern border.
It’s not just Harris ignoring the epidemic in America; Democrats everywhere tout immigration rights and lax border policies. President Biden himself is the reason for the surge in immigrants due to his foreign policies.
In 2021, the United States faced a border crisis like it’s never seen before, with immigrants admitting Biden was responsible. Unfortunately, the White House hasn’t been helpful in stopping the immigration crisis or the drugs that come with it.
In fact, they’re almost encouraging the use of drugs as House Democrats recently blocked a bill, the HALT Fentanyl Act, making fentanyl and related substances Schedule I drugs under the Controlled Substances Act a permanent classification. Why aren’t they protecting the people who voted for them?
