"Operation Lone Star" In Texas Seizes Enough Fentanyl To Kill Every American; Rainbow Fentanyl Crisis ‘going to get worse’ Unless US Stops Flow at Border, and Related Problems in Arizona and California

"Operation Lone Star" In Texas Seizes Enough Fentanyl To Kill Every American:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's "Operation Lone Star" has deployed thousands of Texas National Guard soldiers and Department of Public Safety troopers across the border this year despite the lack of effort from the Biden administration. In doing so, Texas has seized enough fentanyl to kill every American.
"In the past year, Texas law enforcement alone has seized over 342 million lethal doses of fentanyl—enough to kill every man, woman, and child in the United States," according to Abbott's office.
The announcement comes after Raul Ortiz, The Head of The US Border Patrol, testified under oath that the White House's border strategy of "no consequences" for illegal immigrants had caused one of the most significant border "crises" in years.
Since President Biden entered office, around 5 million illegal immigrants have crossed onto US soil -- that's almost equivalent to the entire population of Ireland. The crisis unfolded after Biden rolled back Trump-era policies. --->READ MORE HERE
Rainbow fentanyl crisis ‘going to get worse’ unless US stops flow at border
The federal government is not doing enough to stem the fentanyl crisis amid one of the largest seizures of candy-colored fentanyl pills in New York City last week, according to a drug-trafficking expert.
“The Mexican cartels are behind this new marketing campaign to flood the country with rainbow fentanyl, and it’s only going to get worse,” said Robert Almonte, a Texas-based consultant and former El Paso cop who has more than 30 years of experience cracking down on drug trafficking. “Unfortunately, it’s only going to get worse because the federal government is not providing the resources that border agents need to stop the flow of fentanyl at the border.”
According to Almonte, most of the fentanyl that makes its way to New York City originates with the Nueva Generacion and Sinaloa cartels.
“I don’t see our government treating this as a crisis, even though it’s been a real crisis for a long time,” he told The Post.
The cartels are increasingly manufacturing fentanyl to look like opioids such as Percocet and OxyContin in order to attract a new market, Almonte said: “You think you are taking a Percocet and you are really taking a dose of fentanyl that’s strong enough to kill you.”
Last week, authorities seized a $6 million trove of candy-colored fentanyl pills — the largest in the city’s history — at a Bronx rental building where they also found a semi-automatic weapon and ammunition, according to a report. --->READ MORE HERE
