(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Monday, FBI Director Christopher Wray had warned that there were several dangerous threats emerging from the Southern border, including gangs, drug trafficking, and even smugglers that were connected to ISIS. 

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., had asked Wray during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing about border threats, including those related to the Venezuelan Tren de Aragua gang. In response, Wray argued that while he could not make any reference to that specific gang there were indeed dangerous individuals that had entered the United States through the U.S.-Mexico border. 

He continued by arguing that from the perspective of the FBI, they were seeing a wide array of different threats that had emanated from the U.S. border, including drug trafficking as in the last two years the FBI had seized enough fentanyl to kill around 270 million people.

He proceeded to note that many violent crimes in the country were the result of gangs, which were part of the fentanyl distribution chain. 

Fox News in a new report noted that an internal bulletin from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) had informed agents that they needed to be on the lookout for all those who were entering through the southern border and appeared like they could be members of a gang. 

Rubio had proceeded to ask Wray if there could be a connection between the smuggling networks and terrorist organizations, including ISIS. In response, Wray argued that there is a particular network that has been determined to have connections to ISIS.
