Rep. Kiley Applauds Biden Addressing Fentanyl Crisis, Calls on Biden to Secure Border

Feb 08, 2023

“Americans know that addressing our nation’s fentanyl crisis should, and must, be bipartisan, and I applaud President Biden for announcing steps tonight to do just that. Likewise, Americans know that addressing the crisis at our southern border – the source of much of the fentanyl reaching our communities – must also be bipartisan.  I call on President Biden to put partisanship aside and finally work with Congress to fix our border and protect our families.” – Rep. Kevin Kiley (R-Calif.).

Background: Rep. Kiley is honored to host Rocklin residents Laura Didier and Chris Didier as his guests for President Biden’s State of the Union address. The Didiers lost their 17-year-old son, Zach Didier, to fentanyl two days after Christmas in 2020. Zach was an Eagle Scout, soccer player, and beloved member of the community who had no history of drug use. Chris and Laura have dedicated themselves to raising awareness of the dangers of fentanyl in the hopes of saving the lives of students like Zach. You can read more about Zach here and here.
