According to a report from Breitbart News, four times as much fentanyl is finding its way across the southern border under President Biden compared to two years prior under President Trump. U.S. Border Patrol Agent Mark Dunbar spoke about the fentanyl seizures during the launch of Reps. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Ken Calvert’s (R-CA) congressional caucus dedicated to the fentanyl crisis.
“Across sectors, we’re seeing the amount of fentanyl coming across the border almost doubling,” Dunbar said. “What we’re seeing coming across is equal to the amount of Americans who are dying from it in the U.S.”
“In Fiscal Year 2019, about 2,800 pounds of fentanyl was seized at the border,” Breitbart reports. “The following year, that figure capped out at 4,800 pounds of fentanyl seized. By Fiscal Year 2021, which represents most of Biden’s first year in office, fentanyl seizures skyrocketed to about 11,200 pounds.”
“The figures indicate that fentanyl seizures under Biden, last year alone, have quadrupled since Fiscal Year 2019 when Trump was in office.”
Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco, who also attended the launch, says the seizures in his community have been astronomical.”
“We’re now finding that they’re making the [fentanyl] pills here,” Bianco said. “Two years ago, they were making it all in Mexico. They’re not trying to kill their clients, it’s just that it’s unbelievably addicting.”
