EXCLUSIVE: DeSantis Warns U.S. Must Secure Southern Border Or Face ‘Significant Risk’ Of Terror Attacks

 Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis slammed the Biden administration in an exclusive interview with The Daily Wire on Saturday in response to the Palestinian terror attacks against Israel that have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Israelis while thousands more have been injured.

The attacks from Hamas, an Islamic terrorist group that is funded in-part by Iran, began early Saturday morning during the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah and on Shabbat — the Jewish day of rest that is observed by many in Israel.

Images and videos posted on social media showed hundreds of Islamic terrorists storming into Israel during the attacks — after using various means to get around or destroy sections of Israel’s border wall with the Palestinian Authority — as they then hunted down and slaughtered innocent women and children.

The images of hundreds, if not thousands, of people storming the border was reminiscent of images that flood social media every week of thousands of illegal aliens that are pouring into the southern United States as a result of President Joe Biden’s open border policies.

“We have had more than 7 million people come in illegally under Biden, we don’t know who these people are, we’ve known from the very beginning of his administration, that they are coming from all over the world,” DeSantis told The Daily Wire. “They’re coming, people have come from Russia, China, Iran, other places in the Middle East.”

The 45-year-old Florida governor recalled the times that he has visited the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that he saw people illegally crossing into the U.S. from all over the world.

“And so the question is, are you trying to tell me that people that want to do us harm — whether nation states or terrorist groups — are not going to take advantage of that and try to exploit it?” he said. “And I’ve said publicly before this thing had even happened with the tragedy in Israel, there will be unfortunately, if I had to bet, there’d be a terrorist attack that occurs in the United States at some point in the future that we’ll be able to tie back to the open southern border.”

DeSantis said that with the sheer number of illegal aliens coming into the country, who are completely unvetted, that it would be impossible to bet against the odds of a major terrorist attack happening in the U.S. as a result of the open border and poor border enforcement from the Biden administration.

“I don’t think we have any clue because of Biden’s failures exactly what the extent of the risk is, but there’s clearly been significant risk imposed on the American people because of the open border,” he concluded on the matter.
