MCDERMOTT'S VIEW OF DRUG SMUGGLERS

“By a vote of 399-5, the House on Wednesday [March 8, 2006] passed a bill (HR 2829) that would renew through 2011 the Office of National Drug Control, which coordinates the executive branch's many programs to combat illegal drugs. The bill, which awaits Senate action, would require countermeasures against border tunnels used by drug smugglers; give the agency one year to host an international summit on the methamphetamine epidemic; require at least 10 percent of the agency's advertising budget to be spent to counter meth trafficking; and allocate funds to help local law enforcement deal with the meth scourge.”

One of the five congressmen to vote “no” was Jim McDermott, Democrat of Seattle.  Steve Beren differs with McDermott. Beren believes that protecting our borders is closely related to national defense, homeland security, and public safety. He supports the efforts of the Office of National Drug Control in combatting drug smuggling.  Beren supports strict mandatory jail sentences for those trafficking in illegal drugs.
