Marc Thiessen: ‘The border crisis is fueling the crime crisis’
The Fox News contributor joined ‘The Faulkner Focus’ to discuss the Biden administration’s policy on the border and how it has fueled drug overdoses nationwide.
Fox News contributor Marc Thiessen accused the Biden administration of causing “political chaos” over the border and fentanyl crises, warning even some Democrats are “calling for a border wall” to mitigate the surges. Thiessen argued the “border crisis is fueling the drug crisis” on “The Faulkner Focus” as officials brace for additional surges with the ending of Title 42 in the coming weeks.
BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S MESSAGE IS OPEN BORDERS: NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL VP
MARC THIESSEN: What people are starting to figure out is that the border crisis is related to the crime wave. The DEA just did a study that shows that the influx of fentanyl coming into the United States has fueled the… crime wave… In 34 cities, they found that the rise in gun violence is directly related to… drug crimes and… drug cartels and gangs that are working at that. So the border crisis is fueling the crime crisis, which means it’s not just border state senator[s] and vulnerable Democrats like… Senator Mark Kelly, who’s running in Arizona. It’s also Maggie Hassan from New Hampshire, which is about as far as I can get from the border. She just went down to the border and had her picture taken in front of Trump’s border wall and said, we need to rebuild physical barriers. When Democrats are calling for a border wall, you know that Biden’s border policies are causing political chaos.
