Fending Off Fentanyl
by Michael McCaul on May 24, 2023 at 3:39 PM
The Biden administration's open border policies have led to a dramatic increase in the amount of fentanyl crossing into our nation. Synthetic opioids — primarily fentanyl — killed more than 100,000 Americans last year alone. That’s nearly double the number of American deaths in the entire Vietnam War over two decades. We must do more to stop the flow of this drug into our communities.
This week, I introduced two bills, including the FEND Off Fentanyl Act, to address this problem both at our border and internationally. I will not stop working to combat this generational crisis and protect young Americans in Texas and across the nation. Click below to watch KPRC's coverage of the bills:
