How Bad Is The Border? DEA Agents Seized Enough Fentanyl To Kill Every American In 2022 | Eastern North Carolina Now

    President Joe Biden and "Border Czar" Vice President Kamala Harris couldn't care less about the southern U.S. border.

    But the crisis at the border has exploded as a federal court has ruled that a statute deployed by former President Donald Trump - Title 42, which gives the government the power to shut down the border as an emergency action to keep communicable diseases out of the country - can't be used anymore.

    It's all about to get worse, but let's pause to consider just how bad it already is at the U.S.-Mexican border.

    The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reported this week that agents intercepted 379 million potentially deadly fentanyl doses - enough to kill every American and then some. A fatal dose of the drug - a synthetic opioid 50 times stronger than heroin - is just two milligrams.

    Most of the fentanyl trafficked into the U.S. comes from Mexico, the DEA says, and most of it was produced at secret factories in Mexico by the Sinaloa and Jalisco drug cartels. Both use chemicals sourced in China, the DEA said.

    "DEA's top operational priority is to defeat the two Mexican drug cartels - the Sinaloa and Jalisco (CJNG) Cartels - that are primarily responsible for the fentanyl that is killing Americans today," DEA Administrator Anne Milgram said in a statement.

    The agency seized more than 10,000 pounds of fentanyl, along with more than 50 million fentanyl pills, many that were made to look like legal prescription painkillers. The haul is more than double what the DEA seized in 2021.

    And that's just what the DEA was able to catch. Think about how much more fentanyl made it across the border and into the hands of Americans. In 2021, more than 100,000 died of drug overdoses - two-thirds of which were attributed to fentanyl.

    It's all going to get worse if Title 42 is lifted. President Donald Trump used Title 42 in 2020 as the COVID pandemic broke out worldwide. And in a wise move, President Joe Biden kept the rule in place. Since it was enacted, more than two million people have been expelled.

    But families seeking U.S. asylum filed a lawsuit and a federal judge ordered the Biden administration to lift Title 42 by December 21 - although it has been stayed until after Christmas. When it is lifted, the floodgates will open: Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials told U.S. lawmakers last Wednesday that some 50,000 foreigners are waiting to cross into the U.S.

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Sunday warned of the coming mayhem.

    "If the courts don't intervene and put a halt of removal to the Title 42 it's going to be total chaos," the Republican governor said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

    "Some do come across with COVID and no one knows exactly who comes across with COVID. These people are not tested when they come across the border and so who knows how many people have COVID, who knows what other type of disease they may have. The answer is nobody knows because nobody is testing them," the governor said.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
