We’ve all heard the news this week about four Americans being kidnapped in Mexico with only 2 coming back alive. As a result, Americans are rightfully angry and are looking for answers and leadership from the White House on this alarming and terrifying issue. However, during a press briefing on Tuesday, the White House established a nonchalant type of attitude regarding future steps that should be taken in light of this horrifying reality.
During Tuesday’s White House briefing, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy questioned White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about drug cartels’ threat to Americans.
Joe Biden, according to Doocy, is “comfortable” with drug cartels operating close to the U.S. as fentanyl flows into the country and kills Americans.
Doocy pushed back, asking further if Biden would take a different approach if it were perhaps a different enemy on the other side.
Doocy then asked whether the U.S. military would be considered “to disrupt cartel operations.” The press secretary said she wouldn’t discuss the U.S. military.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), fentanyl, a synthetic drug 50 times more powerful than heroin, is the leading cause of drug deaths in the U.S.
Although it is thought that the drug originates in China, it has entered the United States by drug cartels through a handful of other countries, causing many American children and adults to die.
It is unacceptable that Biden administration has maintained a shameful underreaction to the Mexican cartels slaughtering Americans. This includes turning a blind eye to the terrifying reality of four citizens being abducted, with only two returning home alive. Despite the increasing number of Americans dying from drug overdose related to fentanyl entering our nation from abroad, this coward president is content with allowing these cartel operations in our own backyards. Thus far, there have been no viable solutions offered and it appears as though this matter will be disregarded until it’s too late for many more families and friends of those affected by this tragedy.
