America is at war with the Mexican drug cartels. Even if we aren’t on a war-footing, the cartels are. Recent drone footage showed Mexican cartels camping out just a few hundred yards from our border, in what is essentially a forward operating base. These bases are filled with cartel soldiers armed to the teeth with long guns and body armor. And one of their main sources of revenue – fentanyl – is flooding across our borders and killing Americans. In July, Border Patrol agents saw a nearly 200% jump in seizures of fentanyl at the U.S.-Mexico border. Of the more than 108,000 overdose deaths last year, more than 80,000 were linked with fentanyl. Now the cartels are improvising with “rainbow fentanyl,”colored fentanyl pills disguised as candy. This is our biggest national security threat and it’s right on our doorstep, being fueled by Biden’s open border policies. We need to get on a war-footing now.
