Ten former FBI officials signed a letter describing the present danger the U.S. faces from President Joe Biden’s border policy and raising serious concerns about a “specific threat that may be one of the most pernicious ever to menace the United States.”

The letter was signed last week and sent to leaders in the House and Senate before it was shared by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Thursday. In it, the former FBI officials address a “new and unfamiliar” threat facing the country as “military aged men from across the globe” easily enter the U.S. “across a border that has been accurately advertised around the world as largely unprotected with ready access.”

“It would be difficult to overstate the danger represented by the presence inside our borders of what is comparatively a multi-division army of young single adult males from hostile nations and regions whose background, intent, or allegiance is completely unknown,” the letter states.

“In light of such a daunting, unprecedented penetration by uninvited foreign actors, it is reasonable to assert that the country possesses dramatically diminished national security at this time,” the letter continues. “The nation’s military and laws and other natural protective barriers that have provided traditional security in the past have been thoroughly circumvented over the past three years.”

The FBI officials’ letter was shared as the fight between Texas and the Biden administration over border security is heating up. Earlier this week, the U.S. Supreme Court authorized federal agents to cut through razor wire that was put in place by Texas authorities to repel migrants from illegally entering the country. Then, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a statement on Wednesday, vowing to secure the southern border and uphold “Texas’s constitutional authority to defend and protect itself” as Texas authorities continued to install razor wire along the southern border.

The former FBI officials added that it is “particularly alarming” in light of the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel that hundreds of illegal immigrants apprehended by Border Patrol were on the terrorist watchlist. Since Fiscal Year 2021, 294 suspected terrorists have been apprehended at the southern border, and in Fiscal Year 2023 alone, CBP arrested 598 known gang members who crossed into the U.S., according to the Department of Homeland Security.

The letter warned that a terrorist attack on U.S. soil “in imitation of 10/7” should be “considered a distinct possibility.” The FBI officials added that while “the warning lights are blinking,” there has been “little discussion … highlighting unsecured borders as a significant cause of this increasingly dangerous environment.”

“The country has been invaded, an invasion that will continue as long as the nation’s enemies perceive it will be tolerated,” the letter concluded. “Until it is stopped the United States is extraordinarily less safe and secure. Knowing all of this, it would be a shameful travesty if some terrible attack, a preventable attack, were to occur against innocent Americans or the infrastructure that keeps the nation safe and functioning. The government will have failed grievously in its duty to protect.”


Signatories of the letter included Kevin Brock, Chris Swecker, Timothy Healy, Ruben Garcia Jr., Mark Morgan, David Szady, Jody Weis, David Mitchell, William Gavin, and Timothy McNally. The letter was addressed to House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Select Committee on Intelligence Chair Mike Turner (R-OH), Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chair Mark Warner (D-VA), Committee on Homeland Security Chair Mark Green (R-TN), and Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chair Gary Peters (D-MI).
