With fentanyl, trafficking, and now ISIS-affiliated smugglers, our border is in horrible shape. Could an all-members briefing lead to change?

From Breitbart. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has requested an all-members classified briefing for “all 435” members of the U.S. House of Representatives on national security threats at the United States border with Mexico after reports that a smuggler with ties to ISIS was found bringing people across the border this summer.

McCarthy revealed the push for the classified briefing for every member of the House during an exclusive interview on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel.

The push comes after a CNN report in late August revealed that President Joe Biden’s cabinet was warned in classified security briefings that a smuggler with ties to the Islamic State was found to be helping migrants sneak into the United States across the southern border. It is unclear at this time who exactly this ISIS-connected smuggler was bringing into the country and if those people represent a threat to national security. But CNN’s report noted that several top Biden administration officials were so “alarmed” by the revelations they included the classified information in a briefing to top cabinet officials. …

“The FBI is investigating more than a dozen migrants from Uzbekistan and other countries allowed into the US after they sought asylum at the southern border with Mexico earlier this year, a scramble set off when US intelligence officials found that the migrants traveled with the help of a smuggler with ties to ISIS, according to multiple US officials,” CNN’s article reads. …

McCarthy’s push for an all-members classified briefing is a significant development, because such briefings are something that only happens when there is a major threat to national security like a looming terrorist attack or something truly shocking and severe that administration officials brief members of Congress on behind closed doors. Asked to explain how big of a deal this is, McCarthy said such all-members classified briefings only happening where there is a “direct threat” to the security of the United States and only happen a few times a year at most. McCarthy argued that every member of Congress from either political party has a “right to know” everything happening at the southern border, especially given that he said U.S. officials have encountered people from approximately 160 different countries there. …

McCarthy also said these problems are directly because of Biden and his administration, as they are the ones responsible for the changes in immigration law enforcement. Congress has not made any changes to immigration law since Biden took office, McCarthy said, noting that everything happening there is a result of the administration’s policy priorities done via executive action. …

Father God, we thank you for Your goodness and grace that the border problems haven’t been much worse. If Eric Adams thinks the illegal immigrant rush from all over the world that includes many people coming for very evil purposes is a problem in New York, he needs to see what things are like here in Texas!! Thank God for our Governor Gregg Abbott and our Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick and their bold interventions to stop the invasion and protect our citizens!! Also want to thank you Father for the complete exoneration of all the charges against our Attorney General Ken Paxton that were so false. Dearest God you truly have heard our prayers and know our needs and care about our beloved country and the state of Texas. In the Name of Jesus I command this totally illegal and disastrous invasion to cease. Satan. you are a defeated foe !!! Stand up and proclaim the truth fellow Christians until every US citizen understands and will pray and stand up and vote accordingly. This country has never been so attacked by its own people. In the Name of Jesus I command that all the evil of the Gobal Reset movement cease nevertheless your will Father, not mine. I understand there is a plan for a one world government that you have created, Heavenly Father. Thank you that your angels are protecting every believer that knows the Savior Jesus, the Christ, the Son of the Living God !!!

Heavenly Father, Your word shown in Nehemiah and the order in which You instructed, is most assuredly needed in the U.S. As we petition for our authorities to do Your will, please secure this nation where our fathers are buried. Let each of us ponder and pray according to Your mighty teachings and bring forward at this time Your true servants. We know You are the one who can deliver us from evil ways and most earnestly seek Your help. Thank You for hearing and answering our prayers. We give You all the praise, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Father, our leaders in Congress need conviction of heart, courage to stand up for what’s right, boldness to take a stand for border security. Lord, I ask You to intervene in the affairs at our border. Use our Congress to do so. Open the eyes of the blind. Send the mockers away. Silence those who are using this crisis to further their ungodly agendas. Raise up the voices of those who are defenders of the Constitution. Give them strength, courage and boldness to accomplish Your will. Protect the people of this country from any attempts to destroy it. Amen.

Oh Lord, Our God and Father,
Thank you for hearing our prayers, for listening to our hearts through the Holy Spirit, for our salvation through Jesus Christ!
Horrific, terrifying incidents and problems so numerous at the borders, and throughout our country, it feels too difficult many times to even know how or what to pray for!
The children, brought against their will, the babies being born on the way here, or during the dangerous journey while getting to here, the drugs that keep these babies and children sleeping, the drugs these criminals are sending through the illegal traffickers that now poison even our children in child care and public transportation, and human trafficking and finally now this about terrorists too, including those from China and other enemies of our country! We do not know what to do, how are we supposed to defend our country, our families and communities when rights are taken not only from US citizens, but our Police and other protective Officers, and our Military who are not given the orders they need to secure our borders! Only You oh Father are truly The One in control!
We ask that you convict and enable the ones necessary to do The Job that needs done! Equip them with knowledge, truth, justice, wisdom and the weapons necessary to subdue and arrest, and send back to where they need to be! Its a terrible thing to know we can’t keep all these people, and burden our country beyond a functional law abiding, economically sound country
any longer! BUT, its time to halt all of the evil pervading our whole society. Lord we know you see all, know all. And, perhaps You are waiting for us to stand up, be ready, and put our Armour on? Guide, us all, Lead us to what we are to do, please protect these innocent babies and children, this was not their choice, our hearts are crying out for them. FORGIVE us all, in our lack or willingness to do anything, in
Jesus Christ’s name we pray,

    Another encouragement from Psalm of David, 140:1-13
    1 “Deliver me, O Oord, from evil men;
    Preserve me fromviolent men,
    2 Who plan evil things in their hearts;
    They continually gather together for war….
    12 ” I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted,
    And justice for the poor.
    13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name;
    The upright shall dwell in Your presence.”
    Thank you to those praying in agreement
    May God bless each one here✝️🛐🛐🛐
