U.S. General sounds the alarm on this terrifying national security threat

This administration has made America less safe than ever in modern times. Now the military is speaking up.

And one U.S. General sounded the alarm on this terrifying national security threat.

The Biden administration has basically given up trying to do the right thing.

They regard our national security as a nuisance to push aside rather than a problem to address.

But not everyone with power is willing to go along with their agenda.

Now a top general told senators on Thursday that more than 1,000 drones cross into U.S. airspace near the Mexican border each month.

The amount of unmanned drone incursions is “alarming” and poses a “growing” potential threat to national security, Air Force Gen. Gregory Guillot, commander of North American Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, said during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.

“The number of incursions was something that was alarming to me as I took command last month,” Guillot said in response to a question from Sen. Ted Budd (R-NC).

“I don’t know the actual number – I don’t think anybody does – but it’s in the thousands,” he added.

When Budd probed Guillot on the period used by the general to establish his estimate, he replied, “We can probably have over 1,000 a month.”

The top NORAD official stated that, while the number of invasions concerns him, he has not “seen any of them manifest in a threat to the level of national defense.”

“But I see the potential only growing,” Guillot said.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents, Mexican cartels have been using drones to track the whereabouts of authorities along the U.S.-Mexico border, making it easier to smuggle humans and drugs.

Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez told the House Oversight Committee in February 2023 that in her Texas sector alone, over 10,000 drone intrusions and 25,000 drone sightings had been reported in the previous year.

“The adversaries have 17 times the number of drones, twice the amount of flight hours and unlimited funding to grow their operations,” Chavez told the House of Representatives.

In January 2023, officials acquired drone footage of Border Patrol agents purportedly shot by human smugglers during a raid on what was thought to be a safe house used to conceal migrants illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Human smugglers using drones to surveil the Border Patrol is a growing trend that we’ve observed along the border,” San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Aaron M. Heitke said in a statement.

“This technology provides transnational criminal organizations with new capability that they are eager to exploit.”

High tech tracking and the flooding of millions of people into this country should be a reason to send the National Guard down to the border to sort things out.

But instead, all we get is lip service.
