Tuberville says border situation a harbinger of ‘9/11 attack every few weeks’

U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville said President Joe Biden’s border policies could result in future terror attacks in America.

The House Homeland Security Committee released transcripts this week of depositions with Border Patrol Chiefs claiming they have seen an “unprecedented surge” in illegal immigrants coming to the U.S. in 2023.

Tuberville (R-Auburn) reacted to the news on Monday’s edition of Newsmax TV’s “The Balance.”

“We’ve had hundreds and hundreds of terrorists come across the border, and you know what? We could care less, not we, but the Biden administration,” Tuberville said. “It is going to get us into so much trouble. We’re going to have a 9/11 attack every few weeks if we don’t watch it.

“It is out of control, but this group could care less.”

The senator said the Biden administration should have changed its border policies after the terrorist attack in Israel by Hamas.

“What happened in Israel and Hamas,” he said, “that catastrophe going on over there, when that happened Joe Biden should have woke up and called Secretary Austin and said, ‘Ok, send every available personnel to the border immediately. Close it down. Nobody else comes in.'”

Tuberville also said there isn’t enough urgency from most members of Congress to fix the problem.

“I’m up here watching what’s going on and I’m thinking, ‘Who cares? Who cares about the American people? Who cares about the taxpayers of this country?’ I can’t find anybody, on both sides of the aisle,” he said. “It’s about spending damn money and I’m sick of it. I’m telling you, I’m sick of it. I’m sick of watching what’s going on up here and if we don’t wake up it’s going to be over.”
