President Biden’s open border policies continue to implicitly introduce untold amounts of illegal narcotics, as hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants and trafficking cartel organizations have had nearly unlimited access to the United States .
The crisis is also reaching communities far from the border, where the impact of the fentanyl trade is specifically causing illness and death for Americans, Sara Carter reported on “Hannity” on Tuesday.
“Tens of thousands of bereaved parents as well as law enforcement officials across the country are trying to warn the country of a crisis, a drug crisis of non-addicts, where fentanyl pills and counterfeit fentanyl kill our kids and kill people regardless of their age, “she told host Sean Hannity, before giving an overview of a Texas Department of Public Safety criminal lab.
Criminal lab agent Jennifer Hatch told Carter that as new drugs emerge and “new analogues” emerge, she and her colleagues are doing their best to fight the drug surge, as well as to determine the quantities of lethal substances. toxin arrive in the United States.
Hatch said it only takes 2 mg of fentanyl, which Carter said were a few barely visible crystals in a test tube, to kill an adult.
These drugs, Carter said, have made their way into places like schools and elsewhere – where sometimes unsuspecting addicts ingest a cocktail that includes traces of the narcotic; enough to kill them.

Hatch showed Carter a kilogram of fentanyl seized by authorities and taken to his laboratory in Houston, adding that much of the fentanyl came from the southern border, rather than directly from China or illegally by mail.
“People who think they can tell the difference between a real oxycontin and one that was made in a lab somewhere, maybe in a trailer in Mexico, tell me how a layman can tell the difference. Can they? “
“It’s really tough,” Hatch replied. “Even… in the lab, they can cheat us. We usually don’t know it’s not a real tablet until we use it on our instruments and it’s totally different.”
Carter reported that the Texas DPS seized 918 pounds of fentanyl in 2021, which officials said was only a small portion of what crossed the porous border.
