During portions of an interview with CBS News aired on Wednesday’s “CBS Evening News,” Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco stated that fentanyl deaths are a national security crisis in addition to being an issue of public safety and public health and stated that social media companies need to take more action to stop drug dealing on their platforms. Monaco also said she is concerned that there will be an uptick in the amount of fentanyl crossing the border when Title 42 is lifted.

Host Norah O’Donnell asked, “There were more deaths from fentanyl last year than from the wars in Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq combined. Why isn’t this a national security crisis?”

Monaco responded, “I think it is, Norah. I think it’s a national security issue. I think it’s a public safety issue. I think it’s a public health issue.”

O’Donnell also asked, “Why isn’t there a crackdown by the Justice Department on these social media companies?”
