Dear Friend of America's Survival,
President Trump has been attacking the Red Chinese for shipping fentanyl into the U.S. to kill our fellow citizens. This is a bipartisan issue, as demonstrated by the excellent work of Democratic Rep. Max Rose, chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism.
Rose's office says, "The Center for Disease Control indicates that from 2000 to 2012, fentanyl was identified in 2 percent of all drug overdose deaths. By 2016, that number rose to 44 percent, and by 2017, 57 percent of all deaths that resulted from drug overdose had fentanyl involved. Much of the fentanyl seized in New York City is produced by Mexican cartels, which acquire chemical precursors from China, the world’s largest producer of illicit fentanyl."
In a press release, the Congressman declared that, following a tour of the International Mail Facility at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) today, he discovered "bureaucratic squabbles" preventing "a new cutting edge lab from being built to better detect and prevent illicit fentanyl from being shipped into the United States." The release went on:
“Chinese-made fentanyl is coming through the mail into our communities and causing incredible damage—and it must be stopped both at the source and at critical ports of entry like JFK,” said Rose, who chairs the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism. “But instead, bureaucratic turf wars and red tape have prevented a critical lab from being installed at our top international mail processing center. If any of the involved agencies drag their feet any longer, I’m going to drag them to my district so they can explain to the parents and families who have lost loved ones to fentanyl-laced heroin why they’re taking their sweet time.”
