ICYMI: We just announced a guilty plea by Moayad Heider Mohammad Aldairi, a Jordanian national, for smuggling Yemeni nationals into the United States across our unsecured southern border. He even provided them disguises to blend into the U.S. population. 1/
They were headed to U.S. cities like New York and Chicago when they were caught by #BorderPatrol. 2/
This case shows that Border Security is National Security. It is a troubling loophole in our vetting system that nationals from countries home to large terrorist groups can simply wade across the Rio Grande and get into the U.S. if they manage to evade #BorderPatrol. 3/
That problem is being exacerbated by the current border crisis. As #BorderPatrol agents spend more and more time caring for and processing families, they have fewer resources available for their core mission of patrolling the border. 4/
The solutions are common sense: Give #BorderPatrol more resources—physical barriers, roads, cameras, communication tech, agents—and fix an asylum system that encourages people without valid claims to enter the U.S. illegally. National security depends on getting this right. End/
