Lauren Boebert is fighting for the America First agenda.
She’s putting the Left on notice.
And she made one move that Joe Biden never saw coming.
President Joe Biden’s open borders agenda has unleashed the worst border crisis in history on the nation.
The invasion of illegal aliens coming across the border draws most of the attention, but President Biden has fueled another major crisis.
Record levels of synthetic opioids, like fentanyl, are flooding into the country thanks to Mexican drug cartels, sending the opioid crisis spiraling further out of control.
While the corporate-controlled media has obsessed over the pandemic, drug-related overdoses have become the biggest public health crisis in America.
Over just the past year, over 100,000 Americans have died from drug overdoses, as fentanyl and other synthetic opioids have become the leading cause of death amongst 18 to 45-year-olds.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is just twiddling his thumbs while the country is ravaged by this catastrophe.
But while Biden is asleep at the wheel, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is stepping up and taking action to stop the devastation caused by fentanyl.
The Colorado Republican has introduced the “Fentanyl is a WMD” Act, which would classify this dangerous drug as a weapon of mass destruction (WMD).
Rep. Boebert said the bill would require the “assistant secretary for the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to treat fentanyl as a weapon of mass destruction.”
This would allow multiple government agencies beyond DHS to target and coordinate their response to the fentanyl crisis.
“This would enable the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security, Drug Enforcement Agency, and Department of Defense to better coordinate their efforts and immediately publish the necessary administrative directive to eliminate the threat posed by this deadly substance,” Boebert told Fox News Digital.
“We all know how serious the fentanyl crisis is,” she continued. “Fentanyl is the number one cause of death for Americans aged 18 to 45, and it’s not slowing down.”
Fentanyl is the biggest public health crisis in the country, causing unimaginable pain and suffering to an untold number of American families.
Classifying it as a WMD gives this crisis the serious attention and effort it needs from government in order to bring it under control.
The Congresswoman added that fentanyl is “absolutely a weapon of mass destruction,” but clarified that her bill wouldn’t target legally prescribed fentanyl for medical use.
Rep. Boebert believes the American public would agree with classifying the drug as a WMD because of the “carnage” it has caused in communities across the country.
“Many people have lost friends and family members,” she explained. “And we’re going to try to treat this deadly substance with the seriousness that it deserved, especially with our law enforcement officer. They’re overwhelmed by the fentanyl that is pouring into our community.”
This effort is similar to the move undertaken by President Donald Trump in 2019 to classify fentanyl as a WMD.
With the fentanyl crisis exploding due to President Biden’s open borders fanaticism, it will take a major effort to stop this tragedy.
