That's false, I said it came from southeast Asia, I did not say it came from the middle east. A great deal of the heroin in this country, as well as the synthetic opioids, comes in by air to New England, New York and New Jersey--which is why they have the highest rates of opioid overdose deaths. That comes in from Europe. China appears to be the largest manufacturer of illicit, synthetic opioids (and their government apparently doesn't give a rat's ass), and those are flown in, too--coming by way of Canada in that case. Should we build a wall on the Canadian border, too?
You seem to have lost track of the subject here. Plump's border wall is a pointless exercise in "I want what I want when I want it." That's why I described him having a temper tantrum on the floor of the Rotunda. Heroin accounts for about 37% of opioid deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The synthetic opioid fentanyl alone accounts for 40% opioid overdose deaths. Plump is magnifying the danger of heroin from Mexico in his continuing tantrum over the wall he wants.
All you want to do is argue in favor of the fat boy in the White House. Don't lie about what I've written in the attempt to make your case. Plump's idiot border wall is not going to end drug smuggling into the United States.
