(Luis Cornelio, Headline USA) Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., voiced concerns about potential terrorist threats occurring “every few weeks,” drawing parallels to the horrific attacks of Sept. 11. He attributed this potential risk to what he perceived as President Joe Biden’s horrific handling of the southern border chaos.
In an interview with Newsmax host Eric Bolling on Monday, Tuberville referenced disturbing reports that highlighted the apprehension of over 160 individuals connected to the U.S. terror watch list near the southern border.
“We’re gonna have a 9/11 attack every few weeks if we don’t watch it,” declared Tuberville, emphasizing the lawlessness situation at the southern border and criticizing the lack of attention to this matter. “It is out of control. But this group could care less.”

His remarks followed Bolling’s report on the significant number of Chinese nationals—over 24,000—apprehended at the southern border in 2023. This number notably surpassed the total of Chinese nationals illegally crossing the border in the past decade.
Regarding individuals on the terror watch list and the uncertainty about those who may have evaded capture, Tuberville criticized the Biden administration’s handling of border security and urged decisive action.
“What happened in Israel and Hamas that catastrophe going on over there, when that happened, Joe Biden should’ve woke up and called [Defense] Secretary [Lloyd] Austin and said, ‘Ok, send every available military personnel to the border immediately. Close it down. Nobody else comes in,’” Tuberville added.
In the same interview, Tuberville rebuked what he described as a lack of concern from both sides of the political aisle for the American people and taxpayers amid ongoing border security issues, expressing frustration with the focus on spending rather than addressing the potentially dangerous consequences of an open border.
“We’ve had hundreds and hundreds of terrorist come across the border and we could care less, not we, the Biden administration. […] It’s about spending damn money and I’m sick of it,” Tuberville remarked.
