(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) stated that he believed that currently the risks of the United States having to face a terrorist attack were the highest it has been since Sept. 11, 2001. He argued that this was an effect of the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas, a Palestinian militant group that is currently in control of Gaza.
On Monday during an appearance on Fox News, Cruz stated that the country was currently at greater risk of a major terrorist attack than it has been since the 9/11 terrorist attack. He added that the situation in the Middle East and the open southern border increased the risk for the country. He then noted that the open border was essentially an “invitation” for those who wanted to pose a security threat to the United States.
Cruz proceeded to argue that this was an open invitation by the Biden administration and that they were essentially stating that anyone who was a terrorist or who wanted to murder Americans was welcome to come into the country through Mexico and that they would be allowed in. As he pointed out this was extremely dangerous.
On Oct. 7, Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israel which resulted in thousands of Israelis losing their lives. In retaliation, Israel declared war on the group and has since been striking Gaza. This has resulted in thousands of Palestinian civilians dying.
Cruz previously introduced the Hamas Sanctions Act, which was going to target the organization through the imposition of sanctions on those who are providing funding to Hamas. He added that the Biden administration was not enforcing sanctions against the terrorist group or on those who were providing funding to Hamas.
