Pres. Trump Signs New Law to Help Border Agents Detect Drugs”

President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE signed a bipartisan bill Wednesday aimed at stopping powerful synthetic opioids from coming into the country illegally. The drug has already been used for years to reverse overdoses in humans.

The drug traffickers "are using our postal system and they're killing our people", Trump said on Wednesday while signing the bill in the Oval Office, accompanied by Vice President, Mike Pence, and 17 legislators from both parties, Efe news reported.

While most heroin in the United States comes from Mexico, the bulk of fentanyl is illicitly manufactured in China and sent in the mail, either directly to the United States or to Mexico, where it is mixed with the drugs before making its way north.

'Even dogs die from the scent, ' Trump said. He stressed that "we need customs and border protection".

Specifically, the legislation grants $9 million to the CBP to purchase hundreds of such devices as well as laboratory equipment.

The bill had earned large bipartisan support in both chambers, overwhelmingly clearing both the House and Senate a year ago.

He spoke about the record number of overdoses from the powerful drugs, including fentanyl, and added that they were even unsafe to the sniffer dogs working with authorities to find them.

Fentanyl is directly linked to more than 700 deaths between the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2015, according to the latest data from the DEA.

"And we're going to find the answer".
