Texas Governor Greg Abbott is on the frontlines of the fight against the Biden Administration.

Sleepy Joe and his crew are sleepwalking this country into a full-on crisis in multiple ways, especially on the border with Mexico, where they’re letting cartels and human traffickers run wild.

Now Abbott is revealing just how dangerous the situation is and it’s bad enough to even make progressives stop and do a double take after Abbott’s latest announcement.

‘There Are Dangerous Drugs Coming Across the Border’

Much of the focus has been on human trafficking at the border, especially after video surfaced of trafficker animals dropping baby kids over the border fence. It’s certainly true that it’s a big problem and the overstuffed facilities and kids in cages under Biden are a clear sign of his massive hypocrisy in attacking President Trump, who almost had the border crisis solved.



But another big problem happening at the border is drugs, specifically the ultra-deadly substance fentanyl. 

Abbott warned the Biden Administration, including Department of Homeland Security head Alejandro Mayorkas that this is something that needs to be dealt with. 

“I gotta tell you there’s a new dynamic about what’s going on at the border that Americans need to know about and that is increased apprehension of fentanyl coming across the border. Yes, there may be people coming across but there are dangerous drugs coming across the border,” Abbott said.

Then he announced very worrisome numbers for last month in terms of the amount of fentanyl being trafficked into the United States that was intercepted.

“We had almost an 800% increase April over April of the amount of fentanyl that has been apprehended by the Texas Department of Public Safety. We have obtained enough fentanyl coming across the border to kill every single person in the state of New York.”

Is Biden taking this seriously yet?

The Danger of Fentanyl

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid used to treat severe pain.

It is also used as a military vapor weapon by some armies and is an extremely deadly substance that’s around 100 times more powerful than standard morphine. It is used medically to treat advanced stages of cancer and pain so severe that the person would be in agony without it. 

The drug is often made in China and is highly dangerous. 

As the CDC notes

“Overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids were nearly 12 times higher in 2019 than in 2013. More than 36,000 people died from overdoses involving synthetic opioids in 2019.”

Greg Abbott is correct to sound the alarm on this deadly substance flooding our borders from cartel criminals. It’s time to put a stop to it with the full force of the US military and our border patrol.
