Our 50-State Border Crisis is an eye-opening, myth-busting new perspective on America's border crisis that will change the public conversation about one of our country's biggest threats.

Howard G. Buffett has seen first-hand the devastating impact of cheap Mexican heroin and other opiate cocktails on the U.S. heartland. Fueled by failing border policies and lawlessness in Central America, drugs are pouring over the nation's southern border in record quantities, turning Americans into addicts and drug mules--and killing them at record levels.

Politicians talk about a border crisis and an opioid crisis as separate issues. To Buffett, a landowner on the U.S. border with Mexico and a volunteer law enforcement officer in Illinois and Arizona, these are intimately connected. Ineffective border policies created in Washington, D.C. not only put residents in border states like Texas and Arizona in harm's way, they put Americans in places as far away as Pennsylvania and Vermont at risk. And, contrary to popular myth, what's at stake on the border isn't the safety of our jobs--it's our lives.

Mexican cartels have grown astonishingly powerful by exploiting both the gaps in our expensive yet unsuccessful border security strategy and the desperate people trying to find a safe haven in the U.S.--all while profiting enormously off America's growing addiction to drugs. It's time for Americans to re-think our southern border-and the solution isn't just a wall. Instead, Buffett outlines a more realistic, effective, and bi-partisan approach to fighting cartels, strengthening our national security, and tackling the roots of the chaos below the border.
