Democrats and RINOs continue to dismiss the notion that there is a crisis at our southern border with Mexico.
They don’t feel that 1 million illegal aliens that will enter the US this year is a crisis, even though they are costing us many billions of dollars.
What these ignorant Democrats and RINOs fail to consider is the huge business the drug cartels have of trafficking their destroying drugs into the US.
That business is estimated to be worth up to $652 BILLION, over $100 billion more than Walmart reported making in 2018.

Neon Nettle – Illegal Drug Trafficking From Mexico Generates More Money Than Walmart – The drug trafficking business between Mexico to the US is so lucrative it makes more money than Walmart makes in a year, according to Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) during a Senate hearing on Tuesday.
“Five hundred billion dollars…that makes the cartel business and the and the drug traffic just in Mexico coming across to the United States bigger than Walmart, so this is larger than our largest companies,” Perdue stated.
The drug trade in the US has now valued anywhere between $426 to $652 billion, according to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
“I think we all know the drug trade in this country is really big business,” she said.
“Its reach is global; its distribution is growing; its leadership is criminal. Like any business, it adapts to market changes. Its motivation is power and profit at any costs.” …
That cost is just what the drugs are worth and does not take into account the tens of thousands of lives they destroy.
It also doesn’t take into account the cost and toll it takes on the families and friends of the drug users.
Then, what about those who are victimized – robbed, beaten, raped and murdered – by drug users and addicts.
Everyone, including Democrats and RINOs are demanding something be done to stop the opioid epidemic that is plaguing the US, and yet they don’t want to take any action to shut down the largest supplier of the drugs – the drug cartels.
Why? Because they want and need the illegal votes of millions of illegal aliens and they don’t care what it costs the rest of us.
