Opinion: Mr. Biden, You’re Not Supposed To Be Aiding and Abetting Deadly Drug Dealers

WASHINGTON, DC, Apr 25 — Title 42, indeed, helps slow down the surging illegal immigration crisis at our border with Mexico. And it’s great news that a goodly number of Democrats in Congress are starting to understand that its implementation under President Trump, among other initiatives, helped the border patrol manage the unlawful, ever increasing flow of migrants. But it won’t put an end to the growing number of caravans of intruders who’ve been knocking at our door ever since Mr. Biden and his side-kick, Kamala Harris, began promising come-one-come-all asylum during their 2020 presidential campaign. However, Title 42 is an effective tool that helps the Border Patrol keep drug smugglers from getting into the U.S.

Earlier this month, Georgia’s Attorney General Chris Carr, joined the ranks of lawmakers and lawmen “challenging the Biden administration’s termination of the Title 42.” He filed a lawsuit to block termination. Carr says “It is the paramount role of the federal government to secure our nation’s border and ports of entry, and anything less poses a significant risk to U.S. national security and overall public safety. We know that unchecked immigration policies are a source for human trafficking, drug smuggling, and other violent crime, and we are once again stepping up to defend our state and our fellow Georgians from this administration’s unlawful actions.”

You may never have heard his name before, but Art Del Cueto is a Border Patrol Agent with almost two decades of experience on the job. In fact, Del Cueto is currently the VP of the Western Region of the National Border Patrol Council [NBPC]. In testimony earlier this month before the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, he put it this way: “Since he took office in January of last year, the policies enacted by President Biden and his Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have directly resulted in the least secure border I’ve ever observed in my 18-year career. Due to the Biden Administration’s border and immigration policies, we have seen historically high numbers of individuals, families, and children illegally crossing the border over the past year, which has forced the Border Patrol to dedicate more than 50% of its resources to activities other than patrolling the border, creating gaps along our border.”

The NBPC executive went on to describe how Border Agents are being overwhelmed by the massive surge of illegal immigrants at our southern border. And Del Cueto said that this has distracted them to the point that they are “unable to patrol the border.” As a result, he says, the criminal cartels have free rein to use the migrant surge to successfully increase drug trafficking – the smuggling of deadly narcotics, mainly opioids such as fentanyl – that kill users in the U.S. by the tens of thousands.   

Fentanyl is perhaps the deadliest drug of its kind. Just two milligrams of the stuff – the weight of a feather – is all that is needed to cause death. In the 2021 Fiscal Year, a staggering 11,000 pounds of fentanyl, nearly 50 billion milligrams, was seized at the Mexican border. To put it into perspective, in the first four months of the Biden presidency, the authorities at the border seized about 6,494 pounds of fentanyl compared to 4,776 pounds seized in all of the last year of President Trump’s tenure. Last year, more than 100,000 American deaths were caused by drug overdoses.

Del Cueto concluded his House testimony by telling the lawmakers that they “do not need to enact new legislation or appropriate new money to address these issues. Thankfully, we already have the laws on the books that we need to stop this growing public health, humanitarian, and national security crisis. And we have more than enough funding appropriated to DHS each year to do what we need to operationally to address these issues. We simply need a change in policy. It starts with policy, and President Biden’s policies have made our borders the least secure in our nation’s history.”

As if we don’t have enough homegrown bad guys in the U.S., President Biden has apparently decided there aren’t enough. The statistics are undeniable. During the Fiscal Years in which President Trump held office, the numbers of drug traffickers apprehended at the border by the Border Patrol fell from 1,797 in FY16 to 449 in FY 2019. In Mr. Biden’s presidency apprehensions skyrocketed from 386 in FY20 to 2,138 in FY21. And in just the first six months of FY 2022, trafficking arrests are already at almost 1,000.  

Title 42 made it easier for the Border Patrol to keep drug smugglers out of the country by making it harder for them to get into the country. Mr. Biden’s decision to repeal it will make life harder for the border police and easier for the smugglers. It’s as simple as that.

Biden should be registered an agent of a foreign country (maybe Russia or China). He has been slow to put pressure on Russia about Ukraine.

You can safely bet old Pedo Joe and the head Rats are getting all kinds of bribes and kickbacks from the cartels. Knowing Democrats, they’re probably taking some of the payments in the form of drugs, slaves, and children.

President Joe Biden has committed treason against this country by his wanton disregard for our laws regarding illegal immigration. By allowing ANYONE to enter our country as he is without regard to their status, we Americans have been put in an extremely dangerous and vulnerable position.

Biden is NOT protecting us from “enemies, both foreign and domestic”. The results are catastrophic as we see criminals, drug dealers and an astounding amount of Fentanyl coming into our country on a daily basis.

VP Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi support him in this “INVASION” and as such each of them are also guilty of treason.

REPUBLICANS, DEMOCRATS, LIBERTARIANS WHERE ARE YOU. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?

How do we start the process of removing Biden, Harris and Pelosi from office due to their treasonous actions?

No, Sleepy Joe is not protecting us from our enemies both foreign and domestic. He is also not protecting us from our enemies living in Washington D.C. Himself, Harris, Pelosi and the rest of the Demo/Marxists.

LOOK folks, ALL but Henry Cuellar didn’t raise their voices, but NOW that it’s close to re-election time they are speaking out. WHERE in hades have they been for the last 16 months??? They are funded by corporations that WANT the illegal aliens as workers. They could care less about their constituents. Henry represents part of the Rio Grande Valley and has been speaking out for months and months to NO avail. Don’t buy their NOW I care, because they DON’T care that millions and millions are coming here illegally, bringing their children for us to educate at OVER 12,000.00 EACH EVERY year. The Illegals will tell you they pay taxes, BUT they don’t pay enough for their illegal children. Visit Walmart on a Saturday, the line is out the door for sending $$$ back to their home countries, while they sponge off of Legal American taxpayers. You can SEE for yourself every member of Congress’s voting record at NumbersUSA.com

And you can bet that each one of them will vote this year, probably more than once each, and it will be for the Demo/Marxists. Their children will vote democrat and if any of them die on the way, they will vote democrat.

Why not? Even if they get caught, the Rats have made sure absolutely nothing will happen to them.

This poor decreeped Old Man that has been placed in the White House is obviously in stage 2 dementia. He smiles continually a stage 2 symptom. He often does not know what he is saying or why he is even at the podium. ” just tell me what to say, I can do that” We have been handed a RED HERRING nothing that we see or they say is true. There must be a Liberal far left leaning team somewhere underground working to come up with scenarios that can be implemented and promoted as some kind of fact or truth. Just enough of a glimmer of possibility that naive folks will believe. My biggest question is where are the Republicans and the efforts to stop all this fraud and corruption you never hear from any these days. What are they waiting on. POINT OF NO RETURN ?

The Rats will use Pedo Joe as a scapegoat for all of the horrendous damage their doing.

If some prosecutors can make gun manufacturers responsible for gun deaths, we should make biden responsible for drug deaths. Securing the border could have prevented so many of those tragedies; he and harris were in charge as illegals and drugs poured through the border. More crap from the Chinese war machine…or do the bidens profit from this as well?

We could basically make Democrats responsible for all crime, if that’s the reasoning.

WE know Hunter and Joe have been (are being?) financed from the ChiComs. We know that the raw fentanyl comes from China. Connection? We know Joe is doing ZERO to stop illegal immigrants at the southern border and that the Chinese fentanyl is coming through by the Mexican cartels. SO, maybe the cartels are providing Joe ,Hunter, and/or Joe’s crooked brothers with $$$.

It is depressing to know how inept and un-American Joe Biden (and the present-day Democrat party) has withered tp. The Biden Presidency rivals the Civil War era for its damage to the health of our National Constitutional Democracy.
