Former Drug Enforcement Administration special agent Derek Maltz said Mexican cartels were “invading” the United States on “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Wednesday.
Cartels are “invading our country,” he told host Jesse Watters. “They are taking over our cities. They are accumulating market share. They have a marketing campaign going on to maximize profits like any other business operation. And they don’t care about the death of our children.”
Maltz called the cartels “the enemy of our children.”

While President Biden was in Poland, “he talked about the potential chemical attack on Ukrainian citizens,” Maltz said. “But he doesn’t say a word about the ongoing chemical attack on American children.”
Maltz criticized the Biden administration and asked where the Border Czar and Vice President Kamala Harris were.

Thirty grams of fentanyl kills 15,000 people, Maltz said.
Children as young as 12 and 13 are dying from overdoses, he reported, adding that Washington, DC, had recorded nine overdose deaths in 24 hours.
