White House Press Secretary Carine Jean-Pierre lied Tuesday when confronted about the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis.
Noting that Mexican cartels are using drugs to kill Americans on this side of the border, Fox News correspondent Peter Doucy believes Biden is targeting cartels operating very close to the United States. I asked Jean-Pierre why he was “very happy”. Killed two Americans.
Jean-Pierre responded by claiming that “fentanyl at the border” is at “historically low levels.”
It’s at a historic low because of the work this president has done, especially because of what we’ve done to fentanyl at the border —A historic level at which we were able to record many personnel working to secure the border because we were able to seize fentanyl. We did it the historical way. It’s because of what this president did.

It is difficult to determine the exact number of Americans who die from fentanyl each year. This is due to the way the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention classifies the data. Due to an overdose of synthetic opioids.
Still, officials acknowledged the possibility of the FAF’s report.
“Assuming that the other synthetic drug category is 90% fentanyl for 18-45 year olds, it can be argued that unintentional fentanyl overdose is likely the primary cause in that age group. Because we don’t have exact numbers, we can’t say with certainty that this is the correct mortality rate for that age group,” a CDC spokesperson said. Said Politifact Texas.
It’s true that fentanyl seizures are at record levels, but that’s because Mexican cartels have been emboldened to act with impunity on both sides of the border.
