US Border Patrol Chief Warns of National Security Threat Amid Border Surge

US Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens, speaking with CBS News, flags the US-Mexico border crisis as a “national security threat.”

Expressing deep concern, Owens notes the surge of undocumented migrants entering without capture over the past five months, with 2024 apprehensions nearing one million and projected to hit two million by September.

He underscores the danger of the 140,000 “got-aways,” citing their unknown intentions. Owens stresses robust border security as pivotal to national safety, cautioning against exploitation by smugglers and the risks posed by criminal elements among migrants.

Despite acknowledging economic drivers, he advocates stringent immigration law enforcement amidst President Biden’s lenient border stance.
