Biden Administration Faces Backlash Over Southern Border Handling

Thousands of Haitians and other migrants have been camped under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas. Amid the surge at the Texas border, the Biden administration said it is increasing the number of deportation flights to Haiti and resources to the area. President Biden on Tuesday pledged to get the situation “under control” following his speech at the United Nations General Assembly. Meanwhile, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas insisted that the U.S. borders are closed during a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing. Former Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf joins to discuss the recent migrant surge and what would needed to be done to actually get the border under control. He also weighs in on the photo of a mounted Border Patrol agent allegedly whipping a migrant.

On Tuesday, September 21st. U.S. Senators were able to speak with top U.S. national security officials – FBI Director Christopher Wray, National Counterterrorism Director Christine Abizaid, and DHS Secretary Mayorkas – about how terror threats to the U.S. have evolved over the last 20 years. Many senators cited Afghanistan as the main potential source of terror, with the U.S. already experiencing suicide-bomb attacks from ISIS-K during the military withdrawal military from Afghanistan. Fox News Congressional Correspondent Aishah Hasnie covered the Senate hearing and joined to explain how the testimony revealed the risk ISIS-K and al-Qaeda now pose to the United States, how the recent U.S. drone strike suggested a failure of America’s “over the horizon” capabilities and the need for intelligence to assess terror risk from Afghanistan. Hasnie also spoke about how allies in Afghanistan are frustrated and unsure as a result of the U.S. evacuation process and how women in Afghanistan have had their way of life turned upside down now that the Taliban has assumed control.
