The DEA just announced a massive takedown of a Mexican drug ring based in Atlanta.

Twenty people were arrested along with cash, drugs, and weapons.

The DEA’s Robert Murphy:

 The people who are here operating the networks are all illegal…

What we see here in Atlanta and we know pretty much the same in the whole southeast, 100 percent of the meth trafficking is controlled by the cartels – every point, from the production in Mexico, the crossing into the U.S., the conversion for crystal meth sale here, the high level of distribution, and then the actual collection of proceeds, and then back into Mexico. Predominantly, what we arrest here are illegal aliens.

Mexican drug trafficking is a big problem in the US with drugs coming across our wide open borders to be distributed by drug rings like the one just busted.

The CBP announces drug arrests at the border in their reports every day but how many others aren’t caught at the border?

A recent video showing police officers helping three people who had taken fentanyl thinking it was cocaine highlights the epidemic of drug abuse and opioid addiction in America.

Graphic video to “raise awareness”:

The disturbing video of three people suffering from a fentanyl overdose at a Shell gas station in Winter Springs was released by the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office last week to raise awareness about Florida’s devastating opioid epidemic. In the footage, deputies can be seen treating two men and a woman who had allegedly taken fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 50 to 100 times more potent than heroin, that they thought was cocaine. All three victims survived.

Check out the most recent arrests after attempts to cross with drugs. This is why we need a national emergency at our southern border.
