This all you need to know about meaningful solutions to gun violence and the opioid crisis in America.
This is what must be addressed and folks it is so, so simple to understand and the solution is available and we do not need any new legislation to produce the desired results.
Please pay particular attention to the last paragraph.

We have body counts in once wealthy suburbs due to gangs and the opioid crisis. Here is how DACA, suspension of immigration enforcement, and sanctuary cities led to the twin crises that are destroying the fabric of our country. Yet, Republicans refuse to go on offense. Where are the town halls with victims of DACA?

A thrice-deported Mexican and his partner in moving methamphetamine each face 10 years to life in federal prison after they transported $400,000 worth of crystal meth for sale to an undercover agent.
Actually, Saul Bustos Bustos, 38, and Irepan Salgado, 24, rolled into town from Atlanta with seven kilograms of meth, worth $560,000 on the street, based on CrystalMethAddiction.org’s generalized $80 per gram street price. But only five kilos were set to be sold to the undercover agent.
Mexico openly admits that they intend meddling in U.S. politics.
And why is that overlooked? Dreamers and DACA applicants are not only Illegal Aliens they are also potential meddlers in U.S. Politics.
I will tell you why, because Americans believe fake news and ignore the facts.

Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. The second left from Tucson International Airport and arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, federal sources said. In both locations the illegal aliens appeared to be in their late teens and were escorted by a Health and Human Services (HHS) chaperone. Judicial Watch reached out to HHS for comment but did not hear back from the agency.

Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, "a fecalized environment."

Younger illegal immigrants in Arizona make up a far larger percentage of the state’s prison inmates than their share of the population would suggest, according to a new analysis.
While illegal immigrants ages 18 to 35 — a group immigration activists call “Dreamers” — are about 2 percent of of the Arizona population, they are almost 8 percent of the prison population. The over-representation by a factor of four shows that younger illegal immigrants in Arizona are far more likely to commit crimes than U.S. citizens or legal immigrants of a similar age, says John Lott Jr., president of the Crime Prevention Research Center.

What the political and social situation in Mexico brings to the United States is rarely talked about and when such information is available the reader has to dissect out what is important to understand the illegal drug situation inside the United States. This is one of those articles when read carefully brings to light why the war on drugs inside America has been woefully ineffective for so long. Principally, that the cartels in Mexico still have and maintain their illegal drug distribution infrastructure in place inside the United States to bring the drugs from our external borders to the street level dealers in our cities. Without political protection extended to these distribution networks through Sanctuary City Policies inside the United States and lax interior enforcement of our Immigration Laws the cartels would have a much more difficult task in maintaining these distribution networks. The driving force fueling the illegal drug business is the pursuit of money and power. International drug smuggling in this case is organized crime and organized crime cannot exist without political protection on either side of our borders. DACA appears to have the potential to reinforce and expand this distribution network inside the United States. Track the uptick in the opioid deaths inside the United States and you will see that beginning in 2009 is where the sharp increase began and continues through 2016 which is as far as the updated graphs I have seen take us. To think and propose that increased treatment and counseling will solve this problem is deflecting the conversation away from a real solution and provides cover to the illegal drug business.
