We lose 100,000 people a year to fentanyl.
The only war in which we have lost more people a year was the Civil War.
There is a crisis of drugs, violence, and immigration at the border, and it’s not only gotten completely out of hand — but it's being completely ignored.
This is in part, as Levin explains, the “failure of the Mexican government to be a government of law and order. That’s why we have illegal immigration going on in this country.”
Levin shows clips from a Vice documentary, where there were discovered mass graves in Central America containing the bodies of 72 immigrants who were executed military style by Los Zetas — a powerful and violent crime syndicate in Mexico which is considered by the U.S. government to be the most technologically advanced, sophisticated, and dangerous cartel in Mexico.
Following this discovery, a mass grave of 193 bodies was recovered in San Fernando.
And then in 2014, two men were thought to have stolen money from the Zetas. The Zetas' retaliation? Armed units came to their town and destroyed 80 homes with heavy machinery and murdered somewhere between 300 to 500 people.
Vice says that it’s important to remember that this is all a consequence of the drug war.
Levin then asks, “How do you justify an open border? How do you justify people coming into this country illegally?”
He continues, “We don’t know who they are and where they’re going. Knowing all of this, which the Biden administration knows this and a whole lot more — this is a massive failure.”
The stories told in the Vice documentary are horrific. The number of innocent men, women, and children who have been brutally murdered in the war on drugs is astronomical and devastating.
We can’t let this seep over into our border, but first, we need our leaders to acknowledge that it's a problem.
