Mom Who Lost Sons to Fentanyl Rips Into Congress For Open-Border Policies [VIDEO]
A mother whose two sons died from fentanyl overdoses testified at Tuesday’s House Homeland Security Committee meeting.
Rebecca Kiessling, the mother who testified at the hearing, opened by discussing the tragic death of her two sons and another young woman who died from fentanyl overdoses.
The drug dealer reportedly received a mere 8-15 year sentence for causing at least three deaths.
She unloaded on the government for its apathy towards American citizens dying from fentanyl overdoses and elected who have misplaced their priorities by caring more about the rights of illegal immigrants than protecting our borders and the lives of the citizens they are elected to represent.

“If we had Chinese troops lining up along our southern border with weapons aimed at our people, with weapons of mass destruction aimed at our cities, you damned well know you would do something about it. We have a weather balloon from China going across the country.
Nobody died and everybody’s freaking out about it.
But 100,000 die (Americans) die every year, and nothing’s being done. Not enough is being done. Numbers are going up, not down. And you talk about (illegal alien) children being taken away from their parents. My children were taken away from me!
100,000 Americans a year, 200,000 because it’s both parents, right, are having their children taken away from them.
This should not be politicized. It’s not about race. Fentanyl doesn’t care about race. You talk about welcoming those crossing our border “seeking protection.” You’re welcoming drug dealers across our border. You’re giving them protection. You’re not protecting our children. I’ve been in support groups on Facebook with there’s 1000s of parents who have lost their children. Everyday faces are added.
It’s dehumanizing, it’s demoralizing.”
Border patrol agents have expressed the need for more funding and agents as they have been overwhelmed by the influx of illegal immigrants since President Biden took office.
One highly influential representative of the Border Patrol Union indicated last year that they are only capable of seizing about 5 percent of the fentanyl pills coming across the border.

“If we seize even 5 percent of what’s coming across the border, we’re lucky,” Judd said, referring to a question about fentanyl pills. “And if there’s nobody there to detect you and apprehend you, the cartels are going to push it through between the ports of entry when they know that there is absolutely no chance that we’re going to apprehend that narcotic.” Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council.
Illegal immigration levels have reached new heights under the Biden administration, with over 2.2 million apprehensions in Fiscal Year 2022. The wave of illegal immigration has shown no sign of slowing down, as the House Oversight Committee reported that they estimate 300,000 apprehensions in the first four months of Fiscal Year 2023.
Republican Representatives have continued a pressure campaign to get Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas impeached due to his negligent enforcement policies.
Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas deserves impeachment.
He is purposefully jeopardizing American Sovereignty.

The U.S Customs and Border Patrol agency has also been in turmoil as the Commissioner was forced to resign in November after failing to stop the recent increase in border crossings and reportedly being ‘unengaged’ at meetings discussing the issue.
