Former President Trump will visit the U.S. Mexico border today as Federal agents report a dramatic increase in fentanyl seizures near the Texas border in El Paso.
So far this year, agents have seized 41 pounds of the drug. In 2018 they only seized one pound, so that’s a four-thousand percent increase in three years.
Just two milligrams of the drug can be lethal. Former President Trump is scheduled to visit the Texas border after accepting an invitation from Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott.
Securing the border is not just important to Texas—it is vital to America.
TOMORROW President Trump will join me and law enforcement officials for a border security briefing in Weslaco.
