The Border Crisis Reaches Your Child’s Middle School

border

Think you live too far from the Mexican border to be hurt by the chaos there?

Bloomfield is a picturesque village in central Connecticut, 3,500 miles from the Mexican border. But illegal drugs flowing across that border nearly killed a 16-year-old student at Bloomfield High School two weeks ago. He tried marijuana, not knowing it was laced with fentanyl. Police rushed to the school nurse’s office and administered two doses of Narcan just in time to save him.

Responding to the surge in teen overdoses, Connecticut’s Gov. Ned Lamont is asking, “How did this happen? How is there more fentanyl on the streets than ever before?” Look south, Governor.

Hidalgo County, Texas, Sheriff J.E. Guerra, who operates on the frontlines of the border war, explained that he’s not worried drugs will impact his community. “The drugs go further north,” he said.

Drug thugs cross the border disguised as needy migrants or even unaccompanied minors. Once across, they’re provided bus and airplane tickets to destinations across the U.S. In some cases, charities — largely taxpayer-funded — pay for the tickets, and hand the border crossers cellphones and other items as they start their journeys north.

Other times, “Biden Air” flies migrants stealthily at night into places like Westchester County airport, close to the Connecticut border.

Once far north of the border, drug thugs are invading middle schools and high schools and killing our teens.

Last week’s hearing before the Senate Finance Committee documented the soaring death rates among teens, especially Black teens. A 13-year-old student at the Sports and Medical Science Academy in Hartford, Connecticut, collapsed in the school gymnasium last month and died from a fentanyl overdose. Police found 40 bags of fentanyl in two classrooms, and another 100 bags in the boy’s bedroom.

Bags of fentanyl in a public school classroom should evoke the same alarm as a school shooting or a bomb scare because that quantity could kill just as many innocent students.

Not all young overdose victims are addicts. Fentanyl is 80 to 100 times stronger than morphine. When teens experiment with fentanyl-laced drugs, they’re not just risking addiction; they’re risking death on the first try. No second chance. Fentanyl kills so fast that by the time first responders arrive, more often than not, there’s no pulse.

Many teen victims “probably don’t have a substance use disorder, they’re experimenting, making a bad choice, and they end up dead,” explains Roneet Lev, an emergency room physician in San Diego.

A new federal report warns that even when the drug influx is stopped, the death toll will continue to soar.

Congress’s response is a charade. Congress has directed Customs and Border Protection to adopt new technology and scan 100% of cars and trucks passing through the legal ports of entry. Right now, about 5% are scanned. True, more scanning will result in more seizures. But the cartels can shift more of their operation to crossing between the ports illegally. Democrats are resisting all efforts to close illegal entry.

Most migrants wading across the Rio Grande with backpacks and shopping bags are carrying necessities — but some are trafficking. A backpack sniffed out by canines hid five pounds of fentanyl stuffed in breakfast burritos. Estimated street value: $60,000.

As long as Democrats insist on open borders, killer drugs and drug dealers will pour in.

What is the Biden administration’s latest response? Allocating $30 million for drug kits to make drug consumption more sanitary. That’s crazy.

Parents need to warn their kids that experimenting with drugs even once can kill them — and they need to insist schools drill down on that message.

Connecticut, for example, requires drug abuse education in each grade, but there is little emphasis compared with woke issues such as racial equity and gender fluidity. Instead of asking kids about their preferred pronoun, tell them to just say no to drugs.

The current woke culture in schools is an engraved invitation for drug dealers ready to literally make a killing off our kids.

This “article”, if you can call it that, is full of falsehoods. Writings like this is exactly what’s causing such a rift within the United States. When you tell lies for clicks, you cause all these people reading them to think you’re telling the truth.
This so-called article is full of lies!!!!!

Greatest threat to America is the democrat party! Manchin and Sinema are the only two worthy of being called Americans and those RINOs who help them destroy this country are no better! The fecalfest administration of Sippy Cup joe is complicit in both the illegal drug and human trafficking trade and an utter disgrace to America! Why you ask? Simple…it’s not the fact democrats have nothing to offer Americans except poverty and economic chains to a centralized bureaucracy disguised as a “helpful, caring” government. No, this is because weak, pathetic people can’t handle mean but true tweets and a President who cuts through the “back to normal” BS of Washington! Never-Trumpers translates nicely to “Never a strong, successful America!” Gutless garbage pretending to be Americans!

Why doesn’t the school nurse have an emergency supply of Narcan on site?

Biden is the actual leader of the cartels. How much money are they paying him to leave the borders open. The illegals should be flown or bussed into Biddens home town and dropped off there.

Biden administration to blame for the invasion and lack of borders. Globalists have taken over the country. May not be enough of us that realize what is really happening. Some how, some way we need stop the Mexican cartels and reduce MSM dominance.

So who in the world would allow their kids to attend ANY public schools in ANY part of the USA? If parents don’t home school or pay for private schools then they are raising the next generation of Marxists. And don’t forget a certain leftist political party are totally BOUGHT AND PAID FOR by the Mexican drug cartels. WAKE UP!

Right now the Dems are thrilled with this Russia/Ukraine stuff, because there is no talk of the Southern border crisis right now making it even easier to sneak these people into other states. So I am not surprised at all that our schools are starting to get affected. The Dems are happy. People with brains like the rest of us ——– not so much.

So, Americans ARE DYING FROM THE “BIDEN FLU”? . . . And we’re supposed to be surprised? . . . Yet, the ONLY WAY American Citizens are going to address this problem is for American Citizens to be involved and unfortunately it’s always after problems occur. . . . Comrade President Jackass Josef “Lyin” Biden CAUSED THE PROBLEM. now HE CAN REAP THE CONSEQUENCES!!! . . . Yay, Josef!

I blame the governors on the southern border. All they have to do is finish the wall & deport the invaders. They are elected to do what is right for the citizens of their state. Their inaction is adding to the crisis. They can fight the gov’t & the citizens will support them.

Yes, but the governors of California and New Mexico are Marxist Democrats. They are not on our side. They are committed Marxists who hate America.

I feel closing the borders between the US / Mexico to be imperative. I did not imagine that five hostages held in Cuba in the then U.S. prison were sent back to the Middle East in a prisoner exchange only to have two of these terrorists head to Honduras and begin the assault at the Mexican border. It is intrinsic in the principles of our country to help people rebuild their own country and economy offerng refuge only if these people are in danger of death from a dictatorship. (I am wearing a pair of Born shoes made in Mexico, not Germany!)

When foreign government manufactures poison to kill your children, it used to be called war. When a leader helps them, it is called treason.

The governor’s of Ca,TX,AZ and other border states should charter buses and bus all these immigrants to 1600 Pennsylvania AVENUE in Washington DC and drop them off. Maybe Congress would see what is going on at our southern borders and do something about this crisis!

If Congress doesn’t act( and I sincerely doubt they would), then call upon the citizens of this country and let us secure the borders. I can guarantee armed citizens of this country would put a stop to these illegal immigrants crossing our borders!!

Seems too many in this country, pre-plandemic, after living pretty much the good life, without going through war or a depression have become complacent armchair citizens. We’re spoiled, demanding and unthankful for all the God given blessings we’ve had. We moan, groan and complain because we are helpless in knowing what to do. This country in reality is getting every single wretched thing it deserves. This country was built upon God given principles which were taught us in our Godly churches filled with His Holy Spirit. But man has a tendency to become lazy and strive with temptation. It’s all in the ‘Good Book!’
Everything our Heavenly Father ever warned us about. But when we give in just a little, Satan’s opportunity to lead us astray overtakes us. We sin, and Satan uses our sin against us to steer us further away from God. Our country walked away from God, and Satan began to work his devious ways in our society. Greed, violence and chaos in our streets, Rights for killing babies, rights for deviant life choices sinking us so deep into degradation and depravity that now the only seeds that are mainly sown are wicked and evil.
Our government is totally evil, much of our society is evil.
Those of us who are trying to hang on are doing the only thing we know to do. Talk about it, text about it…try to get the word out to others to do something, anything we physically aren’t able to do.
My hope is we can reach as many people for Jesus Christ as is possible. It could be that is the only thing holding the Lord back from completely destroying this country, waiting for those yet to be saved. Our kids are oblivious to what is going on. Teachers in the schools must be instructed in some sort of mind altering camp like settings. Having their minds filled with the Marxist Progressive garbage to shove down our kids throats. Because they are also oblivious to what’s going on! Continual grooming of the people who are now taking up the positions in our financial institutions, hospitals and, how wonderful, our government! Talk to any of them, it’s like looking straight through an open window. Well, what can one devise after all this? God IS still in control.
We are still alive and breathing, so we still have ‘Hope.’

May the Good Lord accept our repentant hearts and forgive us, and heal us and put His Spirit in our hearts and save this nation He blessed so greatly. Lord, please Save our loved ones, and bless and Save Israel. Amen.

If you did not see it on Fox News tucker Carlson a month or so ago, there filling chartered passenger jets with millions of illegals and flying them into every major hub in the USA . This is a covert operation and is exactly what these corrupt leftist progressive socialist communists do best, steal everything from the tax payers and use it to fund the underhanded schemes there doing on a daily basis. Yes at 3 Am passenger jets are landing and the illegals are quickly and strategically bussed into localities that will assure them the most advantageous political electoral votes. ( yes you go to get groceries and a bottle of wine and they need to see your license or some form of identification, these Covid ridden and in definitely some instances terrorists need no identification and they’ll be voting fir our next president? Guess who they might be voting for? Oh , and how are they looking so healthy and we’ll fed, cannot even begin to imagine how many BILLIONS this is costing our hard working tax paying, freedom loving American citizens? Biden is a drooling demented fool, and definitely not our legally elected president.

Everyone that is running this year especially the Governors, Senators, Representatives, who have allowed these illegal immigrants into your state and country. Now are trying to fix everything to get back into office just to get back in. Covid is higher in these states than other states. Also think of what your children have gone thru these past 3 years. I am sorry to say but churches, charities and other organizations are helping these people and you should not contribute to them only hospitals should we be making to. These people should come into this country the way the rest of the legal immigrants came in. Think about these shootings, smash and grab, people overdosing, these problems existed but not like now.

The preferred pronoun is just a tipping off point for the drug use. If it has to be HERE or in Connecticut– like what happens in Cal-E-Forn-E-Cate–then so be it!! buck Fiden will tell his voters it’s Trump’s fault– and they will BELIEVE it!!

I am shocked!! Shocked I tell you that there are fatal drugs coming across the border! WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU EXPECT WITH NO BORDER BETWEEN THE U.S. AND THE CARTELS AND THE RELATED CHINA INVOLVEMENT? I believe that it was Nancy Reagan, back in the early 80s that used the phrase “Just say no to drugs.” The drug issue,primarily deaths, has gotten worse than ever thanks to this administration’s total lack of concern for the now nonexistent border. Plus it is now painted as usual that it affects black communities extraordinarily. Sad way to push the urgency of this immigration and drug invasion.

Marxists always want to completely destroy existing society and culture. That’s what Marxism is. So there is nothing at all surprising about this.
