Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
This week’s podcast is a rebroadcast of the September 14 House Subcommittee on Immigration Integrity, Security, and Enforcement hearing entitled, “Terrorist Entry Through the Southwest Border.” The hearing examined, “the national security implications of the Department of Homeland Security’s open-borders agenda, including how the Biden Administration’s policies have led to record-high encounters of aliens on the Terrorist Watchlist as well as the mass release of unvetted aliens into U.S. communities.”
Todd Bensman, the Center’s Senior National Security Fellow, gave testimony first. In it, he explains how the current immigration crisis at the southwest border has elevated and exacerbated the homeland security threat of terrorist border infiltration to discomfiting levels.
