EL PASO, Texas – EXCLUSIVE: Republicans on the House Select Committee
on Intelligence are raising the alarm about "grave" national security
threats facing Americans due to the destabilized southern border.
"We met with the FBI, the Texas Department of Safety, the Border
Patrol. What's clear as we stand here on the border is that the border
is not secure. Thousands of people are being apprehended a day, others
cannot even be captured. The amount of drugs, even guns, that go across
the border, cash, illegal activity, human trafficking. The toll that's happening on people who are crossing this border is extraordinary,"
Turner told Fox News Digital while standing next to the border wall
"This represents a national security threat. The number of people who
are crossing who are not from Mexico, Central America, or even South
America is enormous. These individuals are a threat to our national
security. Many are from countries that have very questionable purposes
when they come here. So our border patrol are overwhelmed. They need assistance.
