(FiveNation.com)- Tennessee Republican Senator Bill Haggerty warned last week that the Biden administration’s plans to end Title 42 will have the Chinese Communist Party and drug cartels “ramping up drug production to all-time high levels.”
While appearing on Fox Business’ “Verney & Co.,” Senator Hagerty said Biden rescinding Title 42 on May 23 will be an “open invitation.” Not only will there be a “title wave” of illegal aliens pouring across the border, but drug production will be ramped up to “all-time high levels.”
Hagerty said the capacity at the border right now is processing 5,000 people a day and they’re already at between 7,000 and 8,000. He told host Stuart Varney that to handle the increased influx, Border Patrol officers will have to be taken off the frontline to deal with administrative duties, leaving the border more porous than it already is. This will pave the way for more dangerous people and drugs to come into the country.
Hagerty told Varney that the drug trade is controlled by multi-billion-dollar drug cartels working in partnership with the Chinese Communist Party. They are sending gangs across the border bringing fentanyl. The drug trade is their business, Hagerty explained.

There is bipartisan opposition in both chambers of Congress to Biden’s decision to end Title 42.
On Saturday, Texas Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar signed on to House legislation that would block Biden from lifting the Trump-era order.
Cuellar joins fellow Democrats Jared Golden of Maine, Stephanie Murphy of Florida, Greg Stanton of Arizona, Chris Pappas of New Hampshire, and Tom O’Halleran of Arizona in supporting the bill.
The House bill is similar to bipartisan legislation in the Senate which received the support of five Senate Democrats, Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, John Tester of Montana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire.
