SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

Drug crime plentiful in New York City; hub of drug trade

Drug trafficking threatens the security of the United States, according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). New York City, authorities say, is the apex of drug crime in the nation, thanks to the city housing a number of illegal aliens who play a large part in the drug problem. In fact, statistics show that non-natives of the United States make up at least 60 percent of drug-related arrests in New York City. 

Apparently, the Big Apple serves as a sanctuary for these illegal immigrants who get lost in the shuffle. Mexican drug traffickers have made New York their main locale for peddling fentanyl -- which has been the cause of many drug deaths and is 50 times as potent as heroin. The DHS considers the problem a national security issue.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) said 10 times more fentanyl was seized in New York City in 2017 than in 2016. Information gathered from wire taps show that a high percentage of the drug seized in New York City was filtered through a Mexican drug cartel. The group allegedly uses the city to get the drug to traffickers -- mostly aliens from the Dominican Republic -- who distribute it to markets in other states.

Those arrested on drug crime charges would do well to seek the assistance of a New York lawyer experienced in criminal law. An attorney will help his or her client to fight any drug charges and work to lessen any potential sentences. The client's rights can be explained to him or her by an attorney prior to the client making statements to police. Even though an acquittal is not always possible, an attorney will work to get the best outcome for his or her client.
