WH Press Secretary Tells Bare-Faced Lie: 'Fentanyl at the Border Is 'At Historic Lows'

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was confronted by a reporter about the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis and the fentanyl epidemic.

Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy, who noted cartels kill Americans with drugs, pressed Jean-Pierre as to why Biden is “so comfortable” with artels operating close to the U.S.

Jean-Pierre responded by claiming “fentanyl at the border” is “at historic lows.”

“Because of the work that this president has done, because of what we’ve done specifically on fentanyl at the border, it’s at historic lows — historical levels that we have been able to record a number of personnel working to secure the border because of what we’ve been able to do, seizing that fentanyl. We’ve done it in a historic way. That’s because of what this president has done,” Jean-Pierre said.

But Jean-Pierre’s claims don’t add up.

In 2022 alone, authorities seized approximately 380 million lethal doses of fentanyl, which is enough to kill every person in the U.S.

Fentanyl seizures are at record highs.

Fentanyl overdose is also currently the leading cause of death among adults ages 18-45 in the U.S.

As The Daily Fetched reported last month, Fentanyl overdose deaths skyrocketed 1,280% over the past five years in Los Angeles alone, according to a new study.

Among the deaths, the highest fell into adults aged 26 to 39 who live in affluent areas. This was followed by the age range of 40 to 64, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

The study derived shocking figures from looking at emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and deaths broken down by age, gender, and ethnicity.

“White residents accounted for the largest number of fentanyl overdose deaths, ED visits, and hospitalizations, followed by Latino, Black, and Asian residents,” the report said.

The report added that black residents were higher at 30%, compared to 22% for white residents, if ethnic groups were broken down compared to rates per 100,000 people.

Due to Mexican cartels being emboldened to act with impunity, it appears Fentanyl deaths are continuing to skyrocket.

“Joe Biden becoming president is the best thing that ever happened to the Mexican drug cartels,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) argued on Tuesday.

It’s breathtaking how stupid this administration thinks the American people are. Her response to the question was disjointed, moronic, semi literate and a bald faced lie. And aside from Fox and other right centered media, it will go unquestioned and most likely unreported. The left wing “gleischautung” of the media is again on full display. Minister for Propaganda and Enlightenment KJP hat gesprochen!
