Fentanyl Deaths & the Southern Border

On Tuesday, February 7th…  Kayleigh McEnany  stated the following in a Facebook post (quote):

"Joe Biden's wide open southern border" is to blame for fentanyl deaths in the U.S."

That is a lie!

First: Most of the fentanyl coming into the U.S. from Mexico is coming through legal ports of entry.

Second: Sanho Tree, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies… a progressive Washington, D.C.-based think tank… says that conflating migrants and drugs is an "old script" pushed for political advantage by Republicans.

He goes on to say (quote):  “ that fentanyl is NOT carried on the backs of migrants… that  drug traffickers deal with professionals, not amateurs, and they prefer U.S. citizens,"
