(PresidentialInsider.com)- Republican Representative Mary Miller of Illinois called the fentanyl crisis a “terrorist chemical attack” created by the policies of the Biden administration.
Miller told Just the News that the Biden administration advertised and facilitated the invasion of the United States, referring to unfettered illegal immigration and drug trafficking pouring across the Southern border.
“Some of these countries are emptying their jails and prisons and sending them up here,” Miller said, echoing the former president’s thoughts on Mexico when he said that Mexico wasn’t sending their best.
“The cartels have totally taken control of our border,” she added, saying there was enough fentanyl coming across the border to kill Americans many times over.
To date, encounters at the border have not let up since Biden took office in 2021. From January to April 2022, 584,231 apprehensions have been made, according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Last month, agents encountered nearly 240,000 migrants with over 1,600 escaping into the U.S.’s interior.
Miller then said that the U.S. was under “a terrorist chemical attack,” where over 100,000 young people died from drug overdoses in 2021. She lambasted the state of Illinois for being a sanctuary city, protecting illegal immigrants from deportation. Complimentary of Democrat policies, the red carpet is essentially rolled out for those who come here illegally, she said, adding that the people of Illinois have had enough.
Drug overdoses increased half as much in 2021 compared to 2020, reaching 105,000 according to data from the CDC.
Before taking office, Biden was caught encouraging illegal immigrants to “surge to the border,” saying that letting illegal immigrants into the country is part of “who we are.” He also paused deportations, halted the near-complete construction of the Southern wall, terminated the “Remain in Mexico” policy instituted under Trump, and ended expulsions under Title 42.
Immigrants looked forward to the Biden presidency. Immigrants are pictured here at the U.S.-Mexico border wearing t-shirts reading, “Biden Please Let Us In.”
Trump, who plans to campaign with Rep. Miller on June 28, has voiced his support for congresswoman who is running against Republican incumbent Rep. Rodney Davis, who voted to certify the 2020 election results. The election comes after redistricting led by Democrats reportedly created two new blue-leaning districts while eliminating two red-leaning districts.
