President Trump has been taking the fight to ISIS and Radical Islamic Terrorism.
So much so, in fact, that they’ve been knocked off their perch as America’s greatest enemy
Instead, an enemy much closer to home, one that Democrats have been happy to put up with in exchange for votes and power, has risen to the top.
Breitbart reports Trump’s Director of National Intelligence’s revelation to the American people:
The Director of National Intelligence called Transnational Organized Crime a growing threat to the security and health of U.S. citizens.
The director said these groups, including Mexican drug cartels and MS-13 cliques, contribute to “increased social violence” and the erosion of governmental authority in many countries.
“Mexican criminal groups will continue to supply much of the heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana that cross the US-Mexico border, while China-based suppliers ship fentanyls and fentanyl precursors to Mexico-, Canada-, and U.S. based distributors or sell directly to consumers via the Internet,” Daniel R. Coats, Director of National Intelligence (DNI) wrote in a Worldwide Threat Assessment report released on Tuesday …
The influx of drugs across the border has been a blight on our nation for decades, and it’s one of the key reasons why President Donald Trump has been pushing for a border wall.
Critics of Trump’s plan are quick to harp on identity politics while giving nary a thought to the problems that are constantly flowing in over the border.
Perhaps they can take some time to review the facts offered up by the DNI.
In 2016, the report states that drug overdoses accounted for more deaths than suicide, motor vehicle crashes, and all forms of homicide. The number of drug overdoses skyrocketed during the past two years–doubling in 2016 because of the national opioid epidemic.
“Transnational organized criminal groups probably will generate more revenue from illicit activity in the coming year, which the UN last estimated at $1.6-$2.2 trillion for 2014,” the DNI continued.
If there’s anything that can be done to slow down the flow of illicit drugs into our country, then who in their right mind wouldn’t want that to happen?
There’s a pretty obvious answer to that question. It’s incredibly unsettling that those who subscribe to that viewpoint would allow identity politics and whatnot to cloud their vision on such a serious threat to our nation.
The wall needs to happen, and the overall sanctity of our nation may very well depend on it.
