Fentanyl is moving across the southern U.S. border at a rapid clip, thanks mostly to President Joe Biden’s inaction on securing the border.
According to Fox News, during an interview with Fox News’ Dan Bongino, former DEA special operations director Derek Maltz warned that the continuous deluge of Chinese fentanyl, through the Biden administration’s open southern border, is nothing less than a “national security threat.”
Maltz laid a majority of the blame on the Biden administration, also noting the rapid rise in fentanyl-related deaths, especially among America’s youth.
“One-hundred percent this [is] gross negligence by Joe Biden and the administration. There’s mass poisonings all over the country. I work with those families every day, that you had on the show, I know their stories personally.”
He added: “The one kid, Zach, was going to go to Stanford or UCLA. He took a pill, he died. The parents found him dead in the bedroom. Unfortunately, this is happening all too often — 9,000 a month.”
“The other thing, too: Joe Biden said publicly that he recognized the drug crisis as an unusual, extraordinary threat to national security. So the logical question is, then, why the hell is the border wide open?”
Fox News Sara Carter has also closely watched the situation with fentanyl at the southern U.S. border, and has interviewed Maltz a number of times on her podcast. In one episode, he warned that Mexican drug cartels “are in our kids’ bedrooms.”

For his part, President Biden hasn’t said more than a few words, if that, about the fentanyl crisis, which is considerably more dangerous than COVID-19 or anything else America is dealing with at the moment. One has to wonder just how high the body count will need to rise before it gets this administration’s attention.
