WASHINGTON, Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The US Drug Watchdog is urging the US Congress to stop playing politics with an incredibly serious national security issue and fund a robust border wall between the United States and Mexico to stop the flood of fentanyl-laced heroin pouring into the US through the porous border separating these two nations. It is estimated that in 2017, more than 70,000 US citizens died from what is called the Opioid Overdose Epidemic. The number one culprit of these needless deaths is fentanyl laced heroin that was produced by Mexican or Central American Drug Cartels. The group is also appealing to the news media to stop calling this national disaster the Opioid Epidemic ----- it is a fentanyl-laced heroin epidemic caused or created by Mexican or Central American Drug Cartels. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog says, "Did some US drug makers create a US dependency for the pain pills? The answer is -absolutely - yes. However, Mexican or Central American Drug Cartels were simultaneously flooding the USA with meth and cocaine prior to 2000. By 2010, Mexican or Central American Drug Cartels had moved onto heroin. Within the last five or six years, Mexican Drug Cartels have been adding Chinese-made fentanyl to make their low-grade heroin more powerful - and it worked. More US citizens have lost their lives to Mexican Drug Cartel heroin than were lost in the entire Vietnam War, along with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq/Syria combined.
"Mexican Drug Cartel heroin typically is brought into the USA via smugglers called mules who carry in this lethal product for money, or by illegal immigrants who are forced to carry it in as the price of entry into the United States. The government of Mexico does not control their northern border with the United States - the Mexican Drug Cartels do. If anyone doubts this, please talk to anyone who works in federal, state or local law enforcement who works along the US-Mexican border." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog believes President Trump's vision for a robust border wall between Mexico and the United States must happen or there will be another dead 70,000 US citizens this year, next year, and on and on and on. They also believe the Mexican Drug Cartel Heroin Epidemic should be the top national security issue for the United States and partisan politics should not be a consideration. Some of the victims of the Mexican Drug Cartel heroin epidemic are US inner city and suburban high school students. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
