Drug Czar: ’93 Percent of Heroin’ in U.S. ‘Comes from Mexico’

Jim Carroll, director of the U.S. Office of Drug Control Policy, told Breitbart News that “93 percent of heroin” in the country “comes from Mexico,” offering his remarks on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Carroll’s comments came ahead of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) National Takeback Day, scheduled for Saturday. The DEA is encouraging Americans to “prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths” by disposing of unwanted, unused, and expired prescription medications at collection sites.

Marlow invited Carroll’s comments linking border security to the DEA’s broader mandate to enforce laws and regulations related to controlled substances.

“We’re really working hard, especially our folks at DHS, whether it’s the U.S. Coast Guard out at sea, border patrol, or Customs and Border Protection,” replied Carroll. “These men and women out there are really doing everything they can to protect us from drugs coming into our country.”

Carroll added, “I think it’s important for everyone to realize — when we talk about the southwest border — 93 percent of the heroin that comes into the country comes from Mexico. So it’s coming right across the border.”

“We know fentanyl is being produced in Mexico as well as China, and coming across the border, as well,” continued Carroll. “Even cocaine from Columbia is not all coming by sea, some it is also coming up through the southwest border, as well.”

5:40-Of course you won't "correct" anything, because you can't. Facts are liberals' kryptonite! Where does the bulk of your B.S. come from? We're "welded shut", so you won't provide facts to back up your B.S.?

And how does it get here? In trucks. So sorry buddy, wall not much help here despite the admin's lies.

Maybe if they had more people available to do searching it wouldn't get in on trucks either. They are overwhelmed at the border and doing the best they can. People were pulled off of check points to deal with the influx of the illegals walking across other places.
