Congressional Group to Address Fentanyl Crisis 

The bipartisan group is working to meet the national threat head-on.

The illicit smuggling of fentanyl into the United States from Mexico is “a national crisis,” a bipartisan group of lawmakers who have formed a caucus to address the matter said Monday. 

Two Representatives from California, Ken Calvert, and Darrell Issa, along with Joe Neguse of Colorado and Madeleine Dean of Pennsylvania, have formed the Bipartisan Fentanyl Prevention Caucus. At the top of their agenda will be a program “to educate the public and the Congress, in cooperation with prevention and awareness groups, to better understand the ongoing threat of fentanyl in communities across America.” 

“Fentanyl is devastating the lives of Americans in every corner of our country. With fentanyl-related deaths climbing every year, we need new solutions to stop this alarming trend,” Calvert said. “This is not a partisan issue – it’s a national crisis.” 

“Fentanyl is not a new danger. But the deadly threat it poses has now reached every corner of our country and no community is being spared,” Issa said. “The stakes could not be more clear: If we don’t win the fentanyl fight, we’re not going to just lose my community or my neighbor’s. Or any one of my colleagues. We’re going to lose this country. This caucus is needed now as we tell the truth, develop solutions, and save lives.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the members of the Bipartisan Fentanyl Prevention Caucus as they work on an education program. 
  • For God to direct administration officials on how to address the ongoing drug crisis in America.
  • For families who have lost loved ones to fentanyl.
