The flood of illegal immigrants that have entered the United States in the past several decades has contributed to the rise in drugs and drug addiction inside the country, former national security adviser and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn says.
“We have a domestic problem that is fueled by large, large numbers of deadly drugs and large amounts of money,” Flynn said on EpochTV’s “Facts Matter” program.
The illegal immigration crisis has reached unprecedented levels under President Joe Biden, with the United States setting new records for illegal alien arrests at the U.S.–Mexico border for both a calendar year and a fiscal year. But the problem goes back 25 years, and has spanned administrations of both parties, said Flynn, who was the national security adviser under President Donald Trump.
If even just 10 percent of the illegal immigrants are criminals, that means a force that’s larger than the entire U.S. Marine Corps has illegally entered the country in recent years, Flynn said.
