Since Joe Biden entered office, the Southern border has faced serious problems. Republicans and many Democrats have called out the administration, accusing it of failing to prevent millions of migrants from entering the U.S. illegally.
Despite three years of growing problems, it appears Biden refuses to do anything.
Border town officials have long ago stated that the border has been taken over by the cartels. These organizations are using the border to engage in criminal activity. And now, something was discovered that could escalate the problem to new heights.
From Fox Business:
A federal law-enforcement source shared with FOX Business Network an internal officer safety alert dated December 13th that warns CBP agents to be vigilant after the Mexican military seized 10 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) at the border.
The IEDs were found by Mexican authorities after Tucson border patrol observed gunshots at the U.S.-Mexico border and a Tucson supervisory border patrol agent arrested an armed person on the U.S. side who had a loaded AK-47 rifle, two loaded AK magazines, loose rounds and a handgun.
According to reports given to Fox Business, the Mexican military found ten improvised explosive devices at the border. This happened as Tucson border patrol arrested an armed individual carrying a loaded AK-47 and two loaded magazines, as well as other weapons.
We do not know what these IEDs were going to be used for. But it is not a stretch to suspect that criminals were trying to smuggle them into the United States. For migrants to be carrying explosives into the U.S. interior signals a greater risk at our border.
For months, Republicans have warned that our unsecured border could be a magnet for hostile actors. However, there have not been signs that the administration is increasing security to prevent such figures from entering the country. The discovery of IEDs at the border is a powerful wake-up call that Republicans and Democrats should heed.
Expect critics to use this news to put more pressure on the Biden administration. Border officials and red states have called on Biden to enforce immigration law and secure the border. Thus far, it appears the president has ignored them.
- Ten improvised explosive devices were found by the Mexican military at the border.
- This happened on the same day the Border patrol arrested a heavily armed person who crossed the border.
- Republicans have long warned that Biden’s neglect of the border is endangering Americans.
