Border Crisis

GAETZ OF HELL: Florida Rep Talks Fentanyl Crisis, Says 'Bomb' the Drug Cartels

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.22.22

During a House Judiciary Committee hearing this week, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) discussed the fentanyl pouring into the country and the Biden Administration’s inability to address the issue.

He also says America should bomb the cartels.

“There has been discussion today of fentanyl. And it irks me every time I hear someone talk about fentanyl overdoses because no one overdoses on fentanyl because I don’t think anybody really sets out to, like, score some fentanyl for a good time,” Gaetz said. “I get why it’s hard to keep cocaine from coming into the country. People in the United States like using cocaine, they seek it out, they pay high dollar amounts for it. And so that would be something hard to stop. But since people don’t set out to use fentanyl, since it’s something we don’t want in our country, we should be totally capable of stopping it.”

“And the only reason we aren’t is because we purposefully allow our border to degrade, not by accident, not because of some lack of capability or some unsolvable problem set,” he continued. “But because there are some groups on the Right and Left who think that they will do better economically if we just let millions of people into the country and depress the wages of Americans, and the cost they’re willing to pay for that are the funerals and the deaths and the broken lives as a result of fentanyl poisoning. Because it is not an overdose. It is a poisoning that happens.”

Later, on Twitter, Gaetz shared the clip from the hearing with the following message: “Bomb Sinaloa. Not kidding.” Sinaloa, Mexico is home to the infamous Sinaloa drug cartel.
