Border Patrol makes terrifying discovery at the southern border

It’s not just illegal immigrants pouring into this country every day. Thanks to Biden, it’s so much worse.

And Border Patrol made a terrifying discovery at the southern border.

The United States Customs and Border Protection has issued a warning to agents to be on the lookout for explosive devices.

An internal officer safety notice dated December 13th, according to a federal law-enforcement source, urges CBP agents to be wary after the Mexican military seized 10 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) near the border.

Mexican officials discovered the IEDs after Tucson border patrol observed gunshots at the US-Mexico border and a Tucson supervisory border patrol agent apprehended an armed person on the US side with a loaded AK-47 rifle, two loaded AK magazines, loose ammunition, and a handgun.

CBP is warning its agents to “exercise extreme caution and should report any possible armed subjects approaching the border with possible explosive devices,” according to the memo.

According to a source, the cartel gunfight started over a break in the border fence at the ranch, which is sometimes used to transport drugs over. It’s become a magnet for people smuggling cartels — and the gangs were vying for control.

The CBP’s warning comes as Republicans demand for more border security measures to be included in President Biden’s $106 billion aid plan for Israel and Ukraine.

Republican border hawks have demanded that any aid package include the entirety of H.R. 2 — the House signature legislation passed this year that increases border security, restarts border wall construction, reinstates the Remain-in-Mexico policy, and limits the use of asylum and humanitarian parole, among other significant changes.

The extensive border security package, however, has been rejected by President Biden and Senate Democrats, who allege that it would “cut off nearly all access to humanitarian protections in ways that are inconsistent with our Nation’s values and international obligations.”

On ‘Kudlow,’ Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., believes the state of the southern border is a ‘national security issue.’

The White House and Senate Democrats both rejected a Senate working group’s smaller version of plans based in part on H.R. 2.

This week, it was reported that the government was considering Title 42-style expulsion authority, enhanced expedited removal, and a broadening of immigration detention.

Some Senate Republicans were encouraged by the plans, but Democrats and immigration advocates were outraged.

Senator Chuck Schumer, D-New York, announced Thursday that the Senate would return from its holiday session early to continue border talks.

“That will give negotiators from the White House, Senate Democrats, Senate Republicans, a time to work through the weekend in an effort to reach a framework agreement. It will then take some time to turn that framework into text,” Schumer said on the Senate floor.

One of the Republicans involved in the talks, Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma, told Fox News Digital on Thursday that the White House had yet to put a border proposal on paper.

He stated that if an agreement is reached, MPs will need time to evaluate it, potentially delaying a vote until the new year.

Meanwhile, Fox News reported on Tuesday that overburdened border officials faced more than 10,000 migrants in a single day.
