AcesparksDA FIRST: Republican attorneys general are urging China and Mexico to take action against what they are warning about a “fentanyl disaster” – a “serious and growing threat” to the American people.
The West Virginia conspiracy led by 16 attorneys general, led by Morrisey and Mark Brnovich of Arizona, sent a letter on Thursday About the Biden administration’s “serious and growing threat to outsiders: China’s unwillingness to fully produce and distribute fentanyl precursors to the police, and Mexico’s subsequent inability to control the illicit production of fentanyl using these precursors.”

They warn that the deadly opioid epidemic has been going on by Chinese manufacturers for more than a decade. However, while the Chinese communist government has been cracking down on fentanyl production since 2019 due to U.S. pressure, attorney generals say the situation has worsened as they prepare and ship raw materials to drug cartels in Mexico – they say fentanyl trade is an “industry”. scale “.
Fentanyl, the opioid used in treatment, is 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine. Between 2020 and 2021, nearly 79,000 people between the ages of 18 and 45 – 37,208 in 2020 and 41,587 in 2021 – died due to fentanyl overdoses. data analysis “Families Against Fentanyl” shows from an opioid awareness organization.
“But in the face of this evolving and important challenge, the federal government seemed pleased with the approach,” officials said in a letter to Secretary of State Anthony Blinken. “That is why we write every day to demand a full and immediate response to the plague that is killing our people.”
They cite government data showing that direct fentanyl smuggling from China fell from 128 kilograms in 2017 to half a kilogram in 2020, but the amount of smuggling across the southern U.S. border has risen sharply.

Officials say they are seeing an “emergency wave of senseless deaths from fentanyl,” with three out of every four in West Virginia due to fentanyl. In Florida, fentanyl was the leading cause of drug death in 2020, with a 63% increase in deaths.
One of the answers, they say, is to increase pressure on China and Mexico, who are not doing enough to tackle the problem and urge Blinken to take “immediate action to stop the fentanyl scourge” coming from the two countries.
“While China may have taken the first steps to address domestic production of fentanyl, it has died because its citizens have formed an international death triangle with Mexico,” they say.
“Mexico also needs to put pressure on cartels that produce ready-made fentanyl and take this poison across our border quickly and strongly,” they say. “The Mexican government’s reluctance to allow the establishment of fentanyl production on an industrial scale cannot be justified.”
The letter was signed by Attorney Generals of Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, South Carolina, South Dakota and Texas.
