A troupe of Senate Republicans embarked on a journey to the border and provided an intricate breakdown of their firsthand experience during a recent trip to the southern border. With an air of concern and urgency, these loyal Republicans notified the world that hordes of illegal aliens are swarming into the country from literally every inch of the globe, numbering in the millions. To make matters worse, they warned of a potential influx of terrorists hailing from notorious organizations such as Hamas or Hezbollah. The Daily Caller was fortunate enough to obtain a behind-the-scenes video documenting this GOP Senator’s late October escapade to McAllen, Texas, situated on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Listening to Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso’s unnerving account, it became evident that the gravity of the situation should not be taken lightly. Barrasso disclosed a frightful fact: just days before their arrival at the border, agents intercepted illegal immigrants attempting to smuggle in IEDs, explosive devices that are practically tailor-made for acts of terrorism. Astonishingly, he described these devices as being “the size of cannonballs.” As the camera panned across a truckload of illegal immigrants sneaking into the country under the cover of darkness, Barrasso added, “Two hundred and seventy thousand this month alone, these are all-time records.” Fear gripped his voice as he highlighted the treacherous hiding spots people utilized to elude detection, identifying them as the prime entry points for both terrorists and drug smugglers.
In a lighthearted yet assertive tone, Barrasso lamented the inaction of President Joe Biden, which he deemed unacceptable in terms of national security. Unsurprisingly, Republicans in the Senate remained resolute in their commitment to fortify the border, emphasizing the intrinsic link between national security and border security. Under the Biden administration’s watch, a staggering number of 8 million illegal border crossings have taken place, essentially mirroring the population of the bustling metropolis of New York City. Furthermore, encounters with illegal immigrants have reached a mind-boggling 6.3 million, with over 1.7 million individuals slipping through the cracks and evading capture.
As Texas Sen. Ted Cruz chimed in, alluding to the ongoing conflict in Israel, he highlighted that border patrol had issued explicit instructions to be vigilant for potential terrorists affiliated with Hamas and Hezbollah. Cruz underscored the disconcerting fact that people from all corners of the world were pouring into the country, only to be discreetly distributed across the interior in numbers reaching the millions. Frustration tinged Utah Sen. Mike Lee’s voice as he passionately called for immediate action, pointing out the alarming frequency of sexual assault and human sex trafficking endured by a substantial percentage of women and girls among the migrants. Seizing the moment, Lee urged for an immediate reversal of the current course, insisting that it was both achievable and imperative.
It came as a shocking revelation that in the span of 23 months since the commencement of Fiscal Year 2022, authorities have managed to apprehend a staggering count of at least 269 known or suspected terrorists attempting to infiltrate the border between ports of entry. The actual number is believed to be significantly higher, considering the unidentified “got-aways” who managed to evade capture. Against this ominous backdrop, Nebraska Sen. Pete Ricketts highlighted the global knowledge of the U.S.’s porous border, with desperate asylum-seekers flocking to exploit this opportunity. The urgent need for decisive action was undeniably palpable.
