Through filings by Knudsen, the state has entered into several lawsuits over Biden administration policies related to the southern border.
“We know where this fentanyl is coming from. It’s not being made in Montana. It’s not being made in the U.S. It is 100% being made by the Mexican drug cartels in Mexico using largely Chinese ingredients. And it’s smuggled across our southern border because the border is wide open,” Knudsen said.
The elected officials also cited China as part of the problem, but said it would be more complex to address the chemicals produced in that country and brought to Mexico.
