Before the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued warnings about an Iranian assassin preparing to kill former and current US government officials. At the same time, New York City deployed National Guard soldiers armed with machine guns across subway stations.

On Tuesday morning, the head of the FBI, Christopher Wray, told the Senate Intelligence Committee that terrorist threats against the US had reached a "whole other level," according to Bloomberg. This comes as the migrant invasion, facilitated by the Biden administration, has flooded the nation with millions of unvetted folks from third-world countries, some of whom deeply hate America. 

"You've seen a veritable rogue's gallery of foreign terrorist organizations calling for terrorist attacks against us in a way that we haven't seen in a long, long time," Wray warned lawmakers. 

Wray joined other intelligence community leaders in discussing the current security threats facing the US. 

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, reminded Wray that only a handful of terrorists were in the US before the 9/11 attacks that killed more than 3,000 people. 

"I worry that among the people that are coming across the border that are evading law enforcement, that there are some people among those that mean to do us harm. Do you share that concern?" Cornyn asked Wray.

Wray replied: "I do." 

Wray told lawmakers now "is not the time to panic." 

He said, "We're very actively investigating working with DHS [Department of Homeland Security] on both people whose travel was facilitated but also members of the facilitation network in some other way overseas."

Already, 17 individuals on the FBI's terror watch list were captured on the border several months ago. The US recently caught a known member of the Somali terror group al-Shabaab

The threat stream that keeps DHS folks up at night emanates from Iran and or Iran-backed groups. Biden's open border disaster has been an open ticket for terrorist cells to flood the nation.

Recall this US sheriff's warning last month...

Open borders have compromised our national security.
