GOP Leaders Warn Of National Security Threat Amid Border Policy Concerns

The Biden administration is facing increasing criticism over its handling of border security, as new data reveals over seven million migrants, including potentially dangerous individuals, have entered the U.S. through the “catch and release” program. Fox News reports that an additional 1.9 million migrants have crossed the border undetected, exacerbating fears of national security threats and voter fraud.

ICE is struggling with an overwhelming caseload, with its “non-detained docket” reaching 7.4 million cases. Rep. Mark Green (R-IN), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, expressed concern, stating that these numbers indicate a major issue with current border policies. Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) also highlighted the need to secure the border and prevent government overreach, emphasizing the importance of addressing these issues before the November elections.

Welfare offices and other agencies in 49 states have been providing voter registration forms to migrants without requiring proof of citizenship. This practice has prompted calls for urgent federal action to prevent potential voter fraud. Arizona is the only state that has passed a law prohibiting this practice on state forms.

In response, the House Administration Committee approved the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act, which mandates proof of citizenship for voter registration. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) underscored the importance of securing the voter registration process to ensure that only American citizens can vote in U.S. elections.

The House Judiciary Committee also released a report highlighting the Biden administration’s release of unvetted unaccompanied alien children (UAC) into the country. This program has been exploited by gang members for recruitment, a concern previously addressed by the Trump administration.

Former President Donald Trump criticized President Biden for his border policies during a speech in Florida, accusing him of enabling terrorist activities. Trump pointed to a significant increase in individuals on the terror watchlist entering the country, stating, “Under Biden, there’s been a 3,000 percent increase in the number of people on the terror watchlist crossing into our country from the southern border.”

As Republicans push for tighter border security and stricter voter registration laws, the administration faces growing pressure to address these national security concerns.
