Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper expressed concern about terrorists exploiting the chaos on the southern border due to the changing composition of border crossers, which now includes people from various international backgrounds.

He emphasized that this presents a serious national security concern.

Clapper also highlighted the need for the U.S. to address the southern border while maintaining a position of international leadership. (Trending: Trump Responds To Biden’s Bombing In Yemen)

“So, the Houthis say that American interests are legitimate targets. They’re being very clear about that. Now, obviously, they can’t strike the U.S. from Yemen, where they’re based, but they and others, Director, can take advantage of the chaos on the southern border. There were 225,000 illegal border crossings in the month of December alone on that U.S. southern border,” Erin Burnett said.

“It’s a stunning number. Every time I say it I almost have to go check it, because it does sort of stop you in your tracks. How worried are you about this when you look at that border?”

“I’ve gotten very concerned about it. The nature — the composition of the border crossers has changed a good bit since my day, and now, it’s much more international,” Clapper said.

“There are Chinese, Russians, and others. So, we traditionally thought about it as people coming from South and Central America. Well, it’s much broader than that. So, this is a serious national security concern. Having said that, though, it doesn’t mean that…should be our exclusive focus.”

“We ought to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time to attend to our southern border and also continue our position of leadership internationally.”
