Representative John Katko (R-NY), who leads Republicans on the House Committee on Homeland Security, slammed President Biden for standing idly by while the situation at the southern border leads to needless deaths.
The Oval Office has created a crisis on the southern border, and now the human and drug trafficking has led to dozens of unnecessary deaths.
Representative Katko told Fox News that, “When the border is secure, it’s much more difficult for them to get the drugs across. When it’s not secure, it’s a piece of cake for them. And that’s what we’re seeing now. When the president opened up the border last year and allowed people to flow into this country, it was a boon for the cartels.”
President Biden has made life easier for dangerous cartels and Americans are paying the price with their lives.
Representative Katko continued saying, “It’s creating a mess in the United States all over the place. Over 100,000 people in the last year have died from drug overdoses, and the vast majority had been laced with fentanyl. And the seizing of fentanyl at the border in the last year, to kill every man, woman and child in the United States, is seven times over.”
Those deaths are on the hands of President Biden, who has all the tools to end the crisis at the southern border.
