    Fentanyl seizures across the US southern border continue to skyrocket, with 9,400 pounds of the killer drug seized between October and December, a 241% increase year-on-year, according to federal figures.

Most interceptions are made at ports of entry into the country, where people and vehicles are screened and inspected. A recent big bust in Eagle Pass, Texas, had an estimated street...
