From one of Americaâs most prominent philanthropists, an eye-opening, myth-busting new perspective on the crisis at the USâMexico borderHoward G. Buffett has seen first-hand the devastating impact of cheap Mexican heroin and other opiate cocktails across America. Fueled by failing border policies and lawlessness in Mexico and Central America, drugs are pouring over the nationâs southern border in record quantities, turning Americans into addicts and migrants into drug mulesâand killing us in record numbers. Politicians talk about a border crisis and an opioid crisis as separate issues. To Buffett, a landowner on the US border with Mexico and now a sheriff in Illinois, these are intimately connected. Ineffective border policies not only put residents in border states like Texas and Arizona in harmâs way, they put American lives in states like Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Vermont at risk. Mexican cartels have grown astonishingly powerful by exploiting both the gaps in our border security strategy and the desperation of migrantsâall while profiting enormously off Americaâs growing addiction to drugs. The solution isnât a wall. In this groundbreaking book, Buffett outlines a realistic, effective, and bipartisan approach to fighting cartels, strengthening our national security, and tackling the roots of the chaos below the border.
