After Son’s Overdose Death, Oregon Mom Starts Lawsuit against Biden Admin for Open Borders & Fentanyl Surge
I don’t know about you, but I do not recall a time before this year that I was worried about Halloween candy being spiked with opioids.
But this is the Biden era, and thanks to open borders and the China-Mexico drug circuit, this has now become a reasonable worry for many parents as a massive haul of fentanyl hidden in candy wrappers was uncovered at LAX.
Someone tried to get through security at Los Angeles International Airport with bags of candy that contained some 12,000 pills of fentanyl early Wednesday morning. The opioid pills were contained inside packages of Skittles, Whoppers and SweeTarts candy.
The drugs were seized by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and federal Drug Enforcement Agency agents assigned to a task force at the airport.
The suspect managed to flee but has been identified.
The findings sparked warnings from police officials.
The large bust prompted law enforcement to encourage parents to be cautious this Halloween about the candy their children bring home. There have been multiple reports this year of fentanyl manufactured in rainbow colors or disguised in wrappers.
“With Halloween approaching, parents need to make sure they are checking their kids candy and not allowing them to eat anything until it has been inspected by them,” the Sheriff’s Department said.”If you find anything in candy boxes that you believe might be narcotics, do not touch it and immediately notify your local law enforcement agency.”
Of course, given the TSA’s competence, it is shocking that the suspect got away.
I can't bring too much toothpaste on a plane but the guy with a life sentence worth of drugs evaded all authorities in an airport?

It’s developments like this that has led grieving mother from Oregon to begin plans to sue the Biden administration over its failure to secure the southern border, directly resulting in a surge of fentanyl.
Her son, Alex Garcia, died from a fentanyl overdose.
Tami Garcia, 38, and other parents from Medford, a city in the state’s southwest, have lost children to fentanyl, a powerful and deadly opioid, in recent months and are readying a class action lawsuit to push for tougher action against traffickers.
Alex, an avid American football fan and player, died from a suspected fentanyl overdose on August 26 — apparently taking the pills under an assurance they did not contain the synthetic opioid, which is 50-100 times stronger than morphine.
The case raises troubling questions about the growing acceptance of drugs in states like Oregon, the police’s difficulty in cracking down on such a massive problem, and the seeming ease by which traffickers smuggle drugs across the US-Mexico border.
…Garcia said she was discussing her options for a suit with lawyers and other bereaved parents. Meanwhile, she has launched the website Alex’s Story to raise money and awareness to fight the fentanyl scourge.
