On a day when Americans somberly observed the 22nd anniversary of the most deadly terrorist attack in the nation’s history, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) warned that the Biden regime’s immigration policies could pave the way for a sequel to be carried out.
The Texas Republican tore into the president and the “idiots in his administration” over the risk to national security that is the porous southern border during Monday’s edition of his “The Verdict” podcast and suggested that President Joe Biden and his party have made it easy for those who would seek to kill Americans.
Cruz and co-host Ben Ferguson discussed the lax border security which has all but rolled out a red carpet for murderous drug cartels to enter the country, a criminal element that could also include terrorists.

“You look at the border now, we have a wide open border. It was something that was talked about after 9/11. You have a border that is…could allow any terrorist to come across now,” Ferguson said, noting that the “easiest way” to get into the country would be to come across the southern border.
“And I worry,” he continued, “and we’ve caught people on the terrorist watch list coming across our southern border. I worry that we have forgotten the lessons of 9/11 and what security looks like.”
“When it comes to the southern border. You’re right. We have a vulnerability on our southern border. Every month people are coming across who are on the terror watch list,” Cruz said. “The numbers dwarf the number of known terrorists who would come in prior to Joe Biden.”

“Joe Biden’s open borders are many things. They’re an invitation for people to die and for cartels to brutalize children and to sexually assault women,” the senator continued. “And they’re an invitation to flood this country with narcotics and fentanyl that’s murdering over 100,000 people. And they’re an invitation for Mexican drug lords to become multibillionaires, globally.”
“But it’s also an invitation to terrorists,” Cruz pointed out. “If you’re the next planner of 9/11, it’s obvious where you go. You go to Mexico and you come right across and Joe Biden and the idiots in his administration will fly you to wherever you want to go in this country and you can carry out your terror attack, and sadly, every day that we have an open border under Joe Biden, the Democrats, the odds of another major attack in this country, major terror attack, go up systematically.”
“They are exposing us. They are exposing vulnerabilities whether it is someone trying to hijack an airplane or whether it is a suicide bomber in a mall or an amusement park or a concert or what have you. We are vulnerable to global terrorism because this administration has thrown open the border and will not protect us,” he said.
