Ramaswamy Predicts Terrorist Attack

Former Republican Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy warned that the situation along the U.S.-Mexico border could lead to a potential terrorist attack. The former candidate’s comments came just days after former President Donald Trump made a similar prediction.

Ramaswamy said during a Fox News interview that a terrorist attack reminiscent of last year’s Hamas attack in Israel “could happen right here at home in the United States of America.” The Hamas attack last Oct. 7 killed upward of 1,200 civilians, including a number of Americans, as well as took more than 200 civilians hostage.

“And God forbid you learn that the hard way. So, this should not be a Democrat versus Republican issue,” Ramaswamy said.

Recently the businessman said that a new border law was not necessary, but instead that the federal government should enforce the laws already in place.

Before departing the Republican presidential race in January, Ramaswamy said that he would take a strict approach to the border, including deploying American troops.

The former president said last month that if there was not increased border security there would be a “100% chance of a major terror attack in the not-too-distant future.” He cited his own record on border security issues during a speech before the National Rifle Association (NRA).

“We don’t want our shopping centers blown up. We don’t want our people destroyed. We don’t want dead children where a family will never be the same,” he said.

The former president said that the influx of migrants has contributed to the rise of cities “going to hell” and that are “filthy dirty” and “crime-ridden.”

The current situation at the border has increased political tensions. The House of Representatives voted last week to impeach Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over his record on the border. Many House Republicans accused Mayorkas of violating his oath of office.

Since President Joe Biden took office in 2021, more than six million illegal immigrants have entered the country, including more than three million in 2023 alone.
