Drug cartels are constantly evolving smuggling drugs and people into the United States. 80% of all fentanyl that comes into the United States enters through Arizona. Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb helps patrol the Tucson sector in his role as Sheriff. Deputies down there responded to an accident recently where a teenager was injured after getting into a police pursuit. That teenager, still in critical condition, picked up migrants in Cochise County, getting paid $500 to $1,000 per migrant by drug cartels. Cartels are using social media apps like Snapchat and Tik Tok to recruit Valley teenagers to act as migrant ride charing services.
