CRISIS: Enough Fentanyl to Kill 57 MILLION Seized at Border
As reported Wednesday, Customs and Border Patrol agents in Nogales, Arizona seized enough fentanyl to kill 57 million Americans.
Tucker Carlson reported on the bust on Tucker Carlson Tonight.
“Well, the U.S. border patrol has made the biggest fentanyl bust in history. An enormous amount, enough fentanyl to kill—they estimate—57 million people. That’s more than the combined population of the states of Illinois, New York and Pennsylvania. It’s a lot,” he said.
Carlson spoke with Fox News correspondent Hillary Vaughn about the bust.
“We got our hands on an internal memo from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol that details this bust. The biggest fentanyl seizure in U.S. history,” she said. “According to the memo, four days ago in Nogales, Arizona, at the port of entry, CBP officers stopped a tractor-trailer crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S. with enough fentanyl to kill 57 million people. That’s plenty of fatal dose to wipe out the entire populations of Texas, Arizona and New York state combined.”
The report comes in the midst of a vicious battle in Washington, D.C. over border security. As thousands of illegal aliens pour across the border, some bringing with them copious amounts of deadly drugs, the Democrats refuse to agree to any security measures that might include a physical barrier.
They continue to downplay the situation, despite the fact every day, 100 percent preventable crimes are committed by illegal aliens. President Donald J. Trump has been calling the border situation a “crisis,” while Democrats have called it a “manufactured crisis.”
