San Francisco: Over 9M Lethal Doses of Fentanyl Seized in 2023

The California Highway Patrol has seized more than 40 pounds of fentanyl within a 10-block radius of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood since May 1, 2023, Governor Gavin Newsom’s office said.

The number equates to nine million lethal doses worth of fentanyl seized since the state embarked on its joint public safety partnership with the City of San Francisco, Just The News reported.

CHP has issued over 4,468 citations, resulting in 428 arrests for illegal activity.

“We’re cleaning up San Francisco’s streets,” Newsom said.

“Working alongside our local and federal partners, the CHP is seizing more drugs and more illegal guns and providing the safety and security every Californian deserves.”

The San Francisco operation has deployed multiple teams of officers in Tenderloin and its surrounding areas.

The state announced it was doubling its CHP officer presence in San Francisco, creating a joint law enforcement task force to investigate opioid-related deaths.

CHP contributes to the Drug Enforcement Administration’s “Operation Surge” and other locally-led operations against drug traffickers.

The operation in San Francisco has help from the California National Guard (CalGuard), the California Department of Justice, the San Francisco Police Department, and the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.

The release said:

“The joint effort is focused on improving public safety, targeting fentanyl trafficking, disrupting the supply of the deadly drug in the city, and holding the operators of drug trafficking rings accountable,” a release said.

The operation is part of a broader plan to tackle the Fentanyl and Opioid Crisis.

The plan includes expanding CalGuard-supported operations that contributed to a 594% increase in fentanyl seized.

Earlier this year, Republican Senator Tim Scott slammed the Biden administration for the appalling conditions of the southern border, highlighting the deaths of 70,000 Americans who have lost their lives to fentanyl.

Scott made the remarks during an interview with Fox News while visiting the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday.

“The biggest difference between 2019 and now, two words: Joe Biden,” Scott said.

“When you have a president who unleashes a wide open, unsafe, insecure border, we cannot be surprised by more than six million illegal crossings,” he added.

“However, the devastation of 70,000 Americans who lost their lives to fentanyl because Joe Biden refuses to close our southern border,” Tim Scott continued.

“Preventable. As President of the United States, I will finish this wall, and I will use the available technology to surveil our border to stop fentanyl from killing another 70,000 Americans in the next 12 months.”

Scott also said that he was informed by local law enforcement that the surge in illegal immigration has devastated their communities.

“The devastation that we are experiencing as Americans is preventable — much of it is preventable if we finish the wall, use technology, fire Joe Biden, and hire me,” he said.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
