Biden Fails to Secure Border while Fentanyl causes Record Overdoses: Peter Doocy



White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday insisted that President Biden is “securing the border” against fentanyl, despite the potent opioid driving a surge in US drug overdose deaths, according to the NY Post.

Jean-Pierre made the assertion during a testy exchange with Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy on Overdose Awareness Day — after Doocy asked “when is the president going to do something?” about the more than 300 daily US overdose deaths.

“We see those same numbers as well. But the fact [is] that we’re, you know, we are securing the border,” Jean-Pierre said, citing data that showed a 200% increase of fentanyl seizures at the southern border in July.

“The fact that we are securing record levels of funding from DHS so they can stop illicit drugs from entering into the country, the fact that it’s not just drug traffickers that we’re dealing with as well, we’re stopping financiers. This is what’s happening with this — under thisadministration,” Jean-Pierre said.

The exchange grew heated as Doocy continued to press on the topic and Jean-Pierre snapped, “If Republicans want to help us stop overdose[s] and stop our kids getting overdosed because of these dangerous drugs, because of these fentanyl that we’re seeing in the streets, we’re happy to work with them. But they’re not.”

“I’m moving on,” she declared, ending the line of questioning.
