FBI Director Warns of ‘significant security issue’ During Biden Border Crisis; Wray Says Southern Border Presents 'significant security issues' When Asked if it is Secure; Wray: ‘Wide Array of Criminal Threats’ and Drug Trafficking at the Border

FBI director warns of ‘significant security issue’ during Biden border crisis:
The “staggering” number of people illegally crossing the US-Mexico border poses a “significant security issue” that can be exploited by terrorists, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned Thursday
Wray repeatedly expressed concern about the border crisis at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, despite other members of the Biden administration insisting the border situation is under control.
“I certainly know that it is an eclectic mix of nationalities and the volume is just staggering,” Wray told Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).
Cornyn followed up, “And that’s a public security threat, you agree with me?”
“To me it represents a significant security issue and represents a wide array of criminal threats that flow out of it,” Wray confessed.
The number of Border Patrol busts in the 2022 fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30, has already surpassed 1.6 million, according to official figures.
The year’s tally is poised to soar past last year’s record of nearly 1.7 million encounters. The figures do not include the number of people able to evade authorities. --->READ MORE HERE

FBI chief says southern border presents 'significant security issues' when asked if it is secure:
The director of the FBI on Thursday told lawmakers that the crisis at the southern border presents "significant security issues" -- while avoiding directly addressing claims by the Biden administration that the border is "secure."
FBI Director Christopher Wray was asked at a Senate hearing by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, if he agreed with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas -- who said recently that the border is "secure."
"When Director Mayorkas was asked about the border, he made the, frankly, from my standpoint, implausible statement that the border was secure. From your vantage point, in your opinion, is the border secure?" Cornyn asked.
Wray told Cornyn that "I’m hesitant to substitute my judgment for the Secretary of Homeland Security, but I will tell you that I have spent a lot of time with our field offices down that have border responsibility." --->READ MORE HERE
