In Arizona border sheriff says the death toll from fentanyl and other illicit drugs pouring across the southern border is the equivalent of a bomb taking out a midsize city, but most Americans are unaware of the crisis because of political and media inattention.

Drug overdoses were the single largest cause of mortality for 18- to 45-year-old Americans last year, accounting for more than 100,000 American deaths.

Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb told the Just the News, Not Noise television show last week that the numbers are likely to soar after President Joe Biden lifts the Title 42 health restrictions later this month, increasing the flow of illegal aliens that can assist cartels in moving drugs.

“It is going to bring America to its knees if we don’t fix it,” he said. “It is already the leading cause of death for Americans among 18 to 45 years olds. And it will continue to be as long as we don’t stop it.
