With Title 42 set to expire next week, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said she was concerned about “an increase in illegal immigration” as well as “human trafficking” and “drug trafficking.”
“There is growing concern that a tsunami of fentanyl will wash over the southern border by the time Title 42 expires next week.
Are you worried about that?” “CBS Evening News” anchor and managing editor Norah O’Donnell asked Monaco in an interview Wednesday.
“Certainly we are concerned about that. That is why, as I said, we have focused relentlessly on the two brutal criminal drug organizations, the Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartels,” Monaco said.
Monaco, which oversees the Drug Enforcement Administration, said the agency was using “intelligence”, “cyber means”, “informants” and “data” to attack the supply chain.
