Rep. Cammack Calls Biden ‘Trafficker in Chief’ Over Fentanyl Epidemic
Florida Republican Rep. Kat Cammack slammed President Joe Biden, labeling him “trafficker in chief” over the fentanyl epidemic at the nation’s southern border.
“Every family in America knows someone who has been impacted by drugs in our communities, it all ties back to the crisis at our southern border and it’s disgusting,” Cammack said in an interview on Thursday.
Cammack did not hold back in her blame upon Biden. “We have a man in the White House who doesn’t care or pretends not to notice, and his Administration is completely MIA. All of this truly is a crisis of epic proportions,” she added.
“I don’t even call Biden Commander in Chief, I call him the trafficker in chief b/c he has created a system where if you are a member of the cartel, if you’re a trafficker, if you’re a drug dealer- it’s a great day in America for you,” she said.
“But if you are a law abiding citizen who’s just trying to make a living- you get the short end of the stick, because we’re paying for these flights, these bus tickets- we’re paying for the health care of all of these illegals, and under the Trump administration it never EVER would have been tolerated,” she added.
Cammack has continued to make a name for herself as a freshman member of the House over her outspoken words against Biden and Democrats. As the youngest female Republican in Congress, she’s out to make her voice, and the voices of conservative Americans, heard in Washington.
The CDC reported in November that deaths related to drug overdoses in the U.S. had already surpassed 100,000 by November. Where are these illegal drugs coming from? Predominantly from south of our border, a border Biden continues to leave open for traffickers to increase their American-killing business.
We tend to think of illegal immigration as a people problem, but that’s only part of the issue. When border laws are not enforced, the nation become a hub for human trafficking, gun trafficking and drug trafficking. With Biden in office, business is booming for traffickers throughout Latin America.
Border Patrol uses the phrase that border security is national security. This is also true when it comes to decreasing drug overdoses in our nation. Drug addiction is difficult enough for many Americans without making access to deadly narcotics easily accessible with an open border.
Customs and Border Protection often note in press releases and social media important drug seizures along the border. But we only hear about the drugs that are stopped. No one really knows how many make it through undetected each day while Border Patrol agents are forces to release migrants rather than stop traffickers.
The answer Cammack and America needs is a new commitment to enforce our border laws. When we do, we’ll see fewer drugs imported, offering one step toward reducing drug-related deaths among the next generation of Americans.
