Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) said President Joe Biden’s failure to strengthen the border in the wake of Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel means the country could suffer a 9/11 attack every few weeks.

Tuberville made the revelation during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s Monday broadcast of “The Balance.”

“There was a headline the other day of massive amounts of Chinese migrants coming across our southern border, 24,000 in fact, the ones that are apprehended not to mention senator I mean people on the terror watch lists approaching 200, who knows who have gotten through those are the ones we catch,” Anchor Eric Bolling asked the lawmaker.


Tuberville responded that the President should have learned from what Hamas did to Israel and directed Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin to send military personnel to the border.


“Well what happened in Israel and Hamas that catastrophe going on over there, when that happened, Joe Biden should’ve woke up and called Secretary Austin and said, ‘Ok, send every available military personnel to the border immediately. Close it down. Nobody else comes in.’ We’ve had hundreds and hundreds of terrorists come across the border. And you know what? We could care less, not we, the Biden administration, it is going to get us in so much trouble,” Turberville said. “We’re gonna have a 9/11 attack every few weeks if we don’t watch it. It is out of control. But this group could care less. You know, being a senator, you know, I’m not a senator. I was an educator and I’m up here watching what’s going on and I’m thinking, you know, who cares? Who cares about the American people? Who cares about the taxpayers of this country? I can’t find anybody on both sides of the aisle. It’s about spending damn money and I’m sick of it.”


Turberville has been very critical of the president’s handling of the border. Earlier this year, the lawmaker introduced a bill to force Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to enhance border security.

“Since President Biden took office, 4.8 million illegal immigrants – nearly equal to Alabama’s entire population – have entered our country,” Tuberville told Fox News Digital. “The Biden administration refuses to secure our southern border, despite record numbers of deadly drugs, terrorist watch-listers, and other bad actors pouring into the U.S. unobstructed. Americans are tired of feeling unsafe in their communities and losing loved ones to drug overdoses. I’m proud to introduce the Border Safety and Security Act to regain control of our southern border, hold this administration accountable, and put Americans’ safety first.”
