Daily, the American public is confronted with images of illegal aliens invading our country. The United States has been a stable republic because we have advocated and practiced being a nation of laws. When governments become hostile to the rule of law, they undermine Americanism.
As states along the southern border struggle to handle this mass inflow of humanity, prompted by Democrat’s abandonment of law, buses and planes are now transporting arriving aliens to lawless sanctuary cities around the country. These anti-American cities include Chicago, New York, and even the nation’s capital. To anyone who has seen these images, it has become clear that the open-border policies of the Biden administration have led to a multi-pronged health, humanitarian, and national security disaster.
Less visible, but deadly, is the corresponding spike in China-sponsored fentanyl that has been smuggled across the border and is closely tied to the hordes of illegal aliens. While certainly not as harrowing a visual as unlawful aliens crossing and dying in the Rio Grande, the ultimate impact of the drug has been felt even more acutely in many communities across the country and is similarly difficult to escape.
For the first time ever in 2021 the United States surpassed 100,000 drug overdose deaths. Fentanyl accounted for over 70,000 of those deaths and is 100 times more potent than morphine. The Chinese poison is now found “in everything” in the illicit drug supply chain and has been used to lace other street drugs ranging from marijuana to cocaine, with deadly results.
