Biden Lied—People Died: REPORT SHOWS 1,280% INCREASE IN L.A. FENTANYL DEATHS

The incoherent Joe Biden keeps claiming he has the border controlled and secure—and that no illegal aliens are coming over.  Yet, we see the film footage every day of the thousands that come across our border, while the Border Guards are forced to welcome, fed and house them.  Then Biden puts them on buses, trains and planes to all parts of the U.S.  Worse the drug cartels, not our government, controls the Border.

“The deadly drug fentanyl claimed the lives of 1,504 Los Angeles County residents in 2021, representing a 1,280% increase from 2016. That’s according to a staggering report issued Tuesday by the county’s Department of Public Health

The fentanyl epidemic has been especially costly for teens. The drug accounted for 92% of overdose deaths in 12- to 17-year-olds last year. Among the adult population, the figure was 55%. African Americans had the highest overdose rates.”

Biden is allowing drugs to come freely over the border-and American are dying.  He still refuses to even discuss this.

REPORT SHOWS 1,280% INCREASE IN LA FENTANYL DEATHS

California County News, 11/30/2022 

The deadly drug fentanyl claimed the lives of 1,504 Los Angeles County residents in 2021, representing a 1,280% increase from 2016. That’s according to a staggering report issued Tuesday by the county’s Department of Public Health

The fentanyl epidemic has been especially costly for teens. The drug accounted for 92% of overdose deaths in 12- to 17-year-olds last year. Among the adult population, the figure was 55%. African Americans had the highest overdose rates.

While emergency room visits are up, they are outpaced by deaths. This suggests many people who overdose aren’t getting treatment until it’s too late. In many cases, the death is so sudden that there is no time to seek help. That underscores the importance of naloxone, experts say. The opioid reversal drug can buy critical time.  

Opioid overdoses are “completely preventable if folks have access to naloxone,” Jamie Baker, executive director of Being Alive L.A., told the Los Angeles Times. “Any person — mom or dad or sister, aunt, uncle — could have nasal Narcan with them and in an instant be able to help somebody that’s in the middle of an overdose if they can recognize the signs and administer it. It’s so easy to do.”  

A number of counties and school districts have begun supplying schools with naloxone. Los Angeles’ health department announced this year that it would begin providing the drug at no cost to LAUSD schools. Staff training on naloxone usage began in October.  According to Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, that program has already saved seven lives. 

This week, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office also joined public health leaders in announcing a new working group to address the fentanyl crisis.

  1. Since Biden was elected and the borders were open to a flood I have had two friends who lost son’s to that junk.

    It is everywhere and an open attempt to make life time addicts with just one hit.

    The Democrats hands are dirty with this and the border crossings.

  2. Stan Sexton says

    Don’t blame Biden. He left Border Policy to George Soros and his Open Society dictates. Soros paid for the boats from Africa to Europe and the trains from Central America to our border. Billionaires are most dangerous and behind the financing of the WEF and Great Reset.

  3. Yes, do blame Biden. The southern border is open both to illegals and drugs. But ship them to Martha’s Vineyard the politically privileged start howling. What Biden and Mayorkas are doing is bullshit. It is harmful to the country, dome to perpetuate a communistic democrat party. FJB.
