    The school district serving the growing population of Colony Ridge, a sprawling development north of Houston that has become a magnet for illegal aliens, is facing a sudden surge in drug overdoses.

    A whopping 15 drug-related incidents have happened at Cleveland Independent School District (CISD) since the start of the school year on August 8th, with the district suspecting that fentanyl-laced Percocet pills are to blame.

    "In recent weeks, there have been 4 reported cases of drug overdose in our district, specifically related to Percocet pills that may have been laced with fentanyl," a public service announcement from CISD reads. "We urge all residents, especially those who use or come in contact with prescription medications, to exercise extreme caution."

    But while there have been four reported overdose cases where the student required Narcan this year, there were also eight incidents that required an ambulance to be called to CISD. The figures mark a drastic surge in overdoses, with only one overdose being recorded for all of last year.

    The district now says it is working closely with police and held town halls this month where the police chief briefed the community on the dangers of fentanyl and passed out Narcan, a drug used to counteract overdoses.

    CISD sits in Liberty County, a rapidly growing area that can attribute much of its surge in population to Colony Ridge, a development that could eventually house 200,000 people and uses a financing method that allows illegal immigrants to buy land in the United States.

    The district has exploded alongside the growth of the development, with CISD enrolling nearly 1,100 students in just two weeks over the summer and almost doubling in enrollment since 2018. Many of the new students do not speak English, compelling the district to offer $7,000 annual stipends to bilingual teachers.

    Law enforcement officials have warned that drug cartels are likely to be active in Colony Ridge and, even worse, that they do not have sufficient resources to patrol the development.

    Liberty County Sheriff Rader warned on the Michael Berry Show that his office does not have the resources to handle the criminal presence in the area, noting, "We've heard rumors that the cartel is buying up houses."

    Rader can't be sure what the proportion of patrol officers to residents is because no one is certain exactly how many people live at Colony Ridge, just that it is growing rapidly. He posited that, at best, there may be one officer for every 16,700 residents, but the ratio could be as dismal as one officer for every 25,000 residents.

    Robert Freyer, the First Assistant District Attorney of neighboring San Jacinto County, told The Daily Wire that law enforcement believes "cartels are importing liquid meth into those houses" and "turning it into crystal there."

    The county's sheriff, Greg Capers, also warned that the Los Zetas, Gulf, Jalisco New Generation, and the Sinaloa cartels are active in the region, the latter two of which the Drug Enforcement Agency has noted as "likely the primary trafficking groups responsible for smuggling fentanyl into the United States from Mexico."

    Governor Greg Abbott has responded to the reports of crime and cartel activity in Colony Ridge by placing legislation addressing the development on the schedule for the special legislative session, as well as by sending Texas Department of Public Safety troopers into the area.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

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 what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?
  Yes
  No

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.
