This Week in South Florida: Local 10 News special report on fentanyl operations at southern US border

Last week marked the first ever National Fentanyl Awareness Day.

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Last week marked the first ever National Fentanyl Awareness Day.

More than half of all fatal drug overdoses involve fentanyl.

South Florida is an epicenter for the drug. A recent mass-overdose case involving Spring Breakers in Wilton Manors made national headlines.

Much of the fentanyl that enters the United States comes over the Southern Border with Mexico.

Local 10 News’ Janine Stanwood and photojournalist Jason Writzman went to the border where they received unusual, up-close access with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents, and what they were able to document was must-see.

Stanwood filed a remarkable report and spoke with This Week in South Florida host Glenna Milberg to discuss what she saw while at the border.
