Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) is pushing the Biden administration to tackle the opioid crisis, which is killing Americans at a record high rate. In one interview Wednesday, Republicans emphasized the importance of implementing a three-step plan to combat the crisis and, more importantly, stem the flow of synthetic fentanyl into the United States.

“We are in the midst of the worst drug and addiction epidemic in US history,” he noted on Twitter. “To fight this crisis successfully, we must stem the flow of drugs across our borders, increase containment efforts, and strengthen treatment services.

Portman said the US needs to work with China and Mexico more actively to stem the flow of illegal drugs. The senator believes the fatal substance came from China through the US Postal Service.

“All we ask them to do is screen packages so that our law enforcement can at least prevent some of these toxins from entering our community and increasing the price of our products. extremely potent, deadly drugs on the streets of our community, explains Portman.

For decades, the Ohio leader has been one of the most prominent senators in delivering solutions to combat the opioid crisis. Portman has vowed to urge the White House not to repeatedly push back on the issue.
