This is CRUELTY! Ignoring the huge problem at our border is killing our kids by the thousands. Do you have any idea how many parents have buried their babies that took just one pill that was laced with fentanyl? 👿
On 9/23, the Phoenix Police Department announced that they had seized about 1 million fentanyl pills. The largest fentanyl seizure in their history. The two suspects were arrested identified as Francisco Delgado, 26, and Jose Molina, 21. In August, the Border Patrol stopped a vehicle near Gila Bend and found 343 packages of fentanyl pills, weighing 187 pounds. In July, Customs and Border Protection officers seized 1,800 pounds of fentanyl at ports of entry and the Border Patrol seized 340 pounds. It can be assumed that much more fentanyl is being smuggled across the border due to Border Patrol Agents' pre-occupation with processing historic numbers of illegal entrants and several of their checkpoints on highways having been shut down. I believe the drug cartels are laughing themselves silly at the huge profits they are making under Biden's border policies. They garner more profits now from smuggling fentanyl than marijuana, thanks to Democrats' ballot initiatives legalizing the latter. The result, thousands of American deaths from fentanyl.
And this report brings it home to you in Oregon! It’s time to put your politics aside and put your family and America first. This is not about Trump….it’s about the direction that our country is going. How long before this inflation and the economy starts hurting your business? Something has to change, Tom……hopefully sooner than Later!

Fentanyl-driven overdoses sharply increasing throughout Oregon
OHA, counties, CBOs working to get word out about rescue drug naloxone
PORTLAND, Ore.—Drug overdose deaths in Oregon more than doubled between 2019 and 2021, with the increase driven largely by misuse of the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl, an Oregon Health Authority (OHA) analysis has found. Preliminary data indicate that this trend has continued in 2022.
Over the last 30 months, fentanyl has become a leading cause of overdose deaths, particularly among people who don’t have access to harm-reduction services. This trend is prompting urgent requests for supplies of naloxone, the rescue drug that rapidly reverses an opioid overdose.
