(AbsoluteNews.com) – President Joe Biden has been in office for over a year and the border is absolutely out of control. Republican lawmakers are worried the POTUS’ lax border policies are allowing foreign terrorists to exploit the hole in US national security.
On February 16, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and his eight GOP colleagues on the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security sent a letter to Chairwoman Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX). The lawmakers wanted to discuss recent reports that ICE released an illegal immigrant who had ties to terrorism. The Border Patrol detained Venezuelan citizen Issam Bazzi when he entered the US illegally and the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center flagged the illegal as someone with ties to a terrorist organization.
"GOP congressmembers wrote that Jackson Lee 'must immediately' hold a hearing to 'investigate the recent reports that @ICEgov released an illegal alien with ties to terrorism from custody because he might catch COVID-19 in a detention facility.'”

Despite Bazzi’s terrorism ties, ICE released him into the US. The lawmakers want Jackson to schedule a hearing in the committee to examine the threat foreign nationals with ties to terrorism pose to the US. Specifically, they want to know how the security risk relates to Biden’s poor border policies. The Republicans listed other incidents when terrorists entered the country through the US border.
Biggs and the GOP want the administration to increase the security along the border to protect Americans. After all, isn’t that what the president is supposed to do?
