America Cracks Down On Powerful Drug Fentanyl
“Deadly synthetic opioids like fentanyl continue to take the lives of tens of thousands of Americans every year,” White House Office of National Drug Control Policy Director Jim Carroll said. “To reverse this trend, we are cracking down on drug traffickers more than ever before.”
U.S. Senator from Missouri, Josh Hawley tweeted:
And from Mexico it will flood into the communities I visited this week across Missouri, devastating families & schools & whole regions. This must stop https://t.co/Qi9nVtv5Zq— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) August 24, 2019
Even as drug overdose deaths are declining for the first time in nearly 30 years, a flood of fatal fentanyl is washing over America, Senior Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway said. “Last year alone, federal agents seized enough fentanyl to kill every American man, woman, and child four times.”
President Trump is giving American law enforcement more tools than ever before to cut off these illegal drug supplies and protect our communities from these monsters.
The Treasury Department announced it has identified two Chinese nationals and a China-based Drug Trafficking Organization as significant foreign narcotics traffickers pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act.
