Police in Southern California seized over 20 pounds of fentanyl during a drug bust in Santa Ana. Authorities claim that amount of fentanyl has the potential to kill a whopping 4.7 million people. It takes only 2 milligrams of fentanyl to be a lethal dose.

That’s “more than the combined city populations of Miami, Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa” writes News4 Jacksonville.

Prosecutors say it was the largest drug bust in Orange County in 16 years. The bust also included 200 pounds of cocaine and over 800 pounds of meth, authorities stated.

Fentanyl overdose is a growing crisis in the United States. Weeks ago, DEA agents win California seized 3 kilos of fentanyl powder. Days before the Orange County drug bust, Phoenix federal agents seized 150,000 fentanyl pills and a kilo of fentanyl powder.

On Friday SaraCarter.com reported on a letter sent by the Drug Enforcement Agency to all federal and local law enforcement warning that mass-overdoses are occurring all over the country.

Many street drugs are being laced with fentanyl. The DEA letter stated:

The DEA is seeing a nationwide spike in fentanyl-related mass-overdose events involving three or more overdoses occurring close in time at the same location. In just the past two months, there have been at least 7 confirmed mass overdose events across the United States resulting in 58 overdoses and 29 overdose deaths.

Many of the overdose victims “thought they were ingesting cocaine and had no idea that they were in fact ingesting fentanyl” the letter states. Jacksonville’s DEA Assistant Special Agent in Charge Mike Dubet said Mexican drug cartels are flooding the U.S. with fentanyl to keep up with the demand of drug users and gain new customers.

“Last year, we had a record year of fennel seizures. I believe it was around 15,000 pounds” said Dubet. “This year in the first three months, we’re on pace to top that.”

Sara Carter joined Fox News host Steve Hilton to discuss one aspect of the border crisis no one is talking about: what happens to the drug money?

The crisis continues to increase, so we have to ask ourselves, “what happens when the money goes back?” questions Carter of the money cartels make.

“According to the United States government, the U.S. Department of Treasury, the Mexican drug cartels are actually funneling that money back through Chinese banks” explains Carter.

“We are losing our children” says Carter, while “not only are the drug cartels taking advantage of our national security crisis, but the enemies of our country are taking advantage of the national security crisis at our border.”

“We are losing a generation of Americans” from the dangerous drugs crossing the border. “What is the Biden administration going to do about that?” begs Carter. Those questions need to be posed “directly to the administration.”
