HUMAN EVENTS — Any politician who claims to care about the drug overdose deaths sweeping the nation, but does not demand that we build a wall, deport illegal aliens and end the anchor baby scam, is a liar.
In 2014, more people died from drug overdoses than any year in U.S. history: 47,055. That’s more than die in car accidents — and it’s not even close.
This is a huge, horrible problem — and it’s a problem caused entirely by the fact that Mexico is on our southern border.
The diverse, hardworking people of Mexico manufacture the majority of heroin in the U.S. and import “nearly all” of it, according to a 2014 Washington Post report.
The media and political class respond to this fact by asking themselves: How do we blame this on Americans — preferably white males?
Even as Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the head of Mexico’s largest drug cartel, is all over the news boasting, “I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world” (The New York Times, Jan. 10, 2016), we’re informed, Hey, don’t blame Mexicans! It’s America’s appetite for drugs that’s driving the narcotics trade!
