Rep. Tony Gonzales: Terrorists Are Exploiting Our Broken Borders

Congressman Tony Gonzales (TX-23) issued the below statement following the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) identification of over 400 illegal immigrants who came into the United States through an ISIS-affiliated human smuggling network.
“We know for a fact that dangerous cartels and gangs have used our broken borders as a means to enter the United States. Now, we have confirmation that terrorist-related networks are using similar tactics to smuggle people into our country,” said Congressman Tony Gonzales. “Every light is blinking red. We cannot continue to put border security on the back burner—that goes for both the Biden administration and Congress. American lives are at stake, and we must put politics aside to secure the southern border, stop illegal immigration, and address the threat of terrorist activity in our country.”
Congressman Gonzales represents the largest border district in the U.S. House of Representatives. Texas' 23rd Congressional District spans 823 miles of the Texas-Mexico border and includes Eagle Pass, Del Rio, and El Paso.
