Fentanyl is a scourge that affects every community and every ethnic group, leaving a horrific trail of misery and death, especially among young Americans 18-45. Our leaders are often quick to point out the senseless and tragic loss of life, yet not enough take meaningful action to save lives and address this growing epidemic. There are things we can do to stop the flood of fentanyl in our communities, and that starts with strong national security and closing our border.
Career politicians and big government advocates like Dick Blumenthal reflexively call for more federal resources, but they continue to leave our border patrol and those securing our nation left with one hand tied behind their back. Stopping the invasion at our federal border is critical to stopping the flow of illegal drugs into the United States.
