(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – A report reveals that the amount of fentanyl seized at the southern border of the United States of America last month is sufficient to kill 140 million people or almost half of America’s population.
The quantities of fentanyl coming into the U.S. from Mexico are soaring due to the “open-door” policy that the administration of President Joe Biden is applying to the border with Mexico.
More than 3 million illegal immigrants have been intercepted at the border since Biden became president, while more than 800,000 are estimated to have snuck in as undetected gotaways, according to Customs and Border Patrol data.
The total of 680 pounds of fentanyl captured at the southern border in June is enough to cause the deaths of 140 million Americans, reveals a report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), as cited by Breitbart.
That number corresponds to more than 42% of the U.S. population of 330 million people.
Fentanyl is used in medicine as a pain killer and anesthetic, but in its illicit form, it gets added to other drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and amphetamines to enhance their effects. Currently, it is a leading cause of drug overdose deaths.
The FAIR report points out that in 2021, the first year of Joe Biden’s presidency and the rampant illegal immigration influx, America saw a record number of drug overdose deaths, at 107,622, as per CDC data.
Besides the vast amount of the highly potent fentanyl, U.S. authorities also captured large quantities of other illicit narcotics at the southern border: 104 pounds of heroin, 9,371 pounds of cocaine, and 13,167 pounds of methamphetamine.
The FAIR report pointed out that rampant drug trafficking is just one kind of crime happening on the U.S. border with Mexico. Human trafficking is far more significant.
In June alone, agents of the Border Patrol caught at the border a total of nine known gang members plus two convicted sex offenders and a child rapist last month.
The number of illegal Third World immigrants intercepted at the border last month – 207,416 – is lower than the almost 240,000 caught in May.
Yet, it still represents an increase of 528% compared with June 2020, when only 33,000 illegals were encountered.
