Democrats Side With Drug Cartels

May 25, 2023

It’s shocking. Extreme Democrats, including Jahana Hayes, just sided with drug cartels instead of protecting her vulnerable constituents: voting against stopping the trafficking of the highly addictive and dangerous drug, fentanyl. 

Thanks to Joe Biden’s open border policies, fentanyl has been pouring into the United States at unprecedented rates. According to Fox News, “the government attributed 106,000 fentanyl-related deaths in 2021.” Other scary stats

  • The CDC estimates there were 107,622 drug overdose deaths in 2021. 
  • An estimated 71,238 of those deaths were related to synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl. 
  • In 2020, there were an estimated 57,834 synthetic opioid deaths.

“Hayes’ heartless vote means more suffering for Connecticut residents and more cash in the pockets of drug cartels. Shame on Hayes.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Savannah Viar
