Holding Chinese Fentanyl Producers Accountable

I’ve said it over and over again: The fentanyl epidemic is one of the greatest crises facing our nation. It’s devastating communities everywhere, including right here in Eastern Washington. It hurts me to even say that our state has seen the highest increase in fentanyl overdoses in the entire country, which is a direct result of the Biden administration’s open border policies. 

With help from Chinese chemical companies, Mexican drug cartels are trafficking enough illicit fentanyl into the United States to kill every American many times over. To help end this crisis, it is critical we crack down on Chinese illicit fentanyl, stop the cartels, and keep these weapon-grade poisons off our streets.

That’s why I helped pass the Stop Chinese Fentanyl Act this week in the House of Representatives. This legislation goes right to the source and holds Chinese officials accountable for failing to stop the production and scourge of synthetic opioids and opioid precursors. 

This is a step in the right direction, but the fight continues. Innocent lives depend on it.
