(RepublicanNews.org) – Concern continues to mount regarding the nation’s southern border with Mexico. The Biden administration refuses to accept any responsibility for the crisis, falsely claiming the rise in illegal border crossings is cyclic. However, US Customs and Border Protection figures tell a different tale.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) sent a letter to the directors of the FBI and the CIA on April 6 requesting a classified briefing on the apprehension of “foreign nationals on the Terrorism Watch List” at the border.

His letter also requested House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Vice President Kamala Harris attend the briefing.
Last month, McCarthy traveled to El Paso to observe the border crisis with a dozen other Congress members. US Border Patrol agents told them they had captured individuals from counties as far away as China, Iran, Turkey, and Yemen.
Homeland Security officials recently released information regarding the capture of two individuals from Yemen at the southern border listed on the Terrorist Watch List. It’s high time Biden administration members like Harris quit sending tens of millions of dollars to Central America and started taking an interest in securing the border.
