'Greatly compromised:' Lawmakers see major security hole after 15 suspected terrorists cross border

Lawmakers in Congress are sounding alarm after 15 illegal migrants with suspected terrorists ties were caught crossing the border in a single month, raising worries that some might eventually reach the stage of launching an attack.

"Our national security is greatly compromised, with an open border and simply the unwillingness of the Biden administration to do anything about it, other than just continue to incentivize more and more of it," Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, told Just the News after Customs and Border Protection released May statistics showing the 15 migrants with terrorism flags.

Rep, Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said border agents are increasingly overwhelmed processing the nearly quarter million illegal migrants who are crossing monthly and that means more dangerous players are sneaking across perilously undetected.
