Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) spoke out against President Biden’s open border, claiming it may trigger weekly terrorist attacks on par with the ones on September 11, 2001.
The Republican from Alabama said Monday on Newsmax that it would land us in a world of trouble. If we don’t pay attention, a 9/11 attack will happen every few weeks.
According to Tuberville, the Biden administration could care less.
Tuberville added that Biden should have asked Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to dispatch all available forces to the southern border as soon as Hamas commenced its onslaught on Israel on Oct. 7.
The Biden administration couldn’t care less about the hundreds of terrorists that have crossed the border.
Government statistics show that in fiscal 2023, 169 people were apprehended at the US/Mexico border for being on the terror watchlist, an increase from 98 in fiscal 2022 and 15 in fiscal 2021.
In October, Tuberville was one of about twenty-two Republican senators and state representatives who sent a letter to Austin and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, in which they addressed the assault on Israel and the possibility that an illegal migrant may carry out such an incident in the United States.
Following the horrific assault in Israel, the congressmen expressed worry that terrorist organizations, including proxies of Iran, may use the borders to conduct attacks within the United States.
According to a new poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports, 81% of Americans believe that an increasing amount of illegal immigrants entering the country is a serious problem for the nation. Large numbers from all political parties share this sentiment.
More than half of those who think it’s a big issue say it’s a severe problem (52%). Illegal immigration is not a significant concern, according to just 16% of respondents.
More than ten million undocumented immigrants have crossed into the US since Biden assumed office in 2021, the highest figure ever recorded.
Despite Republicans in Congress opposing military aid to Ukraine due to a deep partisan split on border security, President Joe Biden maintains that he is prepared to negotiate.
