SHOCK: Drug overdose deaths now kill more Americans every year than the entire Vietnam War… after Democrats refused to protect the border from drug cartels

For the last eight years, Democrats allowed drug smugglers and drug cartels to run rampant across the U.S. border, hoping to invite in a sufficient number of illegal aliens to make sure a Democrat could win the presidential election (through illegal voting, of course). The America-hating Democrats lost the election, but the social cost of their “open borders” lunacy will be felt for years to come. (See also The Left’s Descent to Fascism for more background on the deeper cost to society of the Left’s embrace of fascism and treason.)
One of the most devastating costs of the Democrats’ open borders policy is the widespread trafficking of illicit drugs across the U.S. border, effectively flooding the heartland with dangerous chemical substances that destroy lives. Those chemicals are now killing more Americans every year than the entire Vietnam War.
According to an analysis report published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, overdose deaths from illicit drugs have reached war-like levels of annual deaths:
47,055 drug overdose deaths in 2014 (61% involving opioids)
52,404 drug overdose deaths in 2015 (63% involving opioids)
