In a recent revelation, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) shed light on a compelling incident involving the apprehension of an illegal alien at the U.S. southern border.

This individual openly confessed to being associated with a prominent Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO), adding a new layer of complexity to the ongoing border security debate.

A 22-year-old Lebanese national named Basel Bassel Ebbadi was apprehended by U.S. border officials on March 9 in the vicinity of El Paso, Texas.

“That is what happens when Joe Biden and the Democrats open up our southern border. And it is inviting the inevitable, which is what just happened. Hezbollah terrorists crossing our border with the intention of carrying out acts of terror in the United States.” Cruz said during a recent podcast appearance.

“172 people on the terror watchlist. Now that’s troubling. But what’s much more troubling is the hundreds of thousands of gotaways. Understand that 172 are the people they apprehended — that gives you an indication that the volume coming across of terrorist or potential terrorists has exploded, has dramatically, has exponentially increased. But the really serious terrorists are the ones that don’t get apprehended, are the ones that are gotaways.” he continued.

“I’m very worried about ten, twenty, fifty, a hundred more Hezbollah and Hamas terrorists coming over. And intending to do something worse than 9/11, intending to do something on the order of magnitude of October 7, or even worse. This is a clear and present danger. And it is caused daily by Joe Biden and congressional Democrats, leaving our border wide open.” he added.

During his interrogation, the individual admitted to being affiliated with the Hezbollah terrorist organization and revealed his intention to construct an explosive device within the borders of the United States.

Cruz proceeded to discuss the significant increase in the number of individuals apprehended on the southern border who are on the terrorist watchlist.

According to his observations, there has been an increase of 59 individuals apprehended at the border this fiscal year who are on the terrorist watchlist.
