Senator Roger Marshall's (KS) bill would force President Biden's Department of Homeland Security to report monthly on illegal immigrants caught at the southern border who are on the Terrorist Watchlist. Marshall argues the border crisis has resulted in "an invasion," leaving us susceptible to terrorists illegally entering the U.S. On today's show, the Sekulow team discusses the new DHS bill, Iran's training of 500 terrorist fighters, a big ACLJ victory for religious liberty, and much more. Sen. Marshall will also join the show to discuss his proposed bill.

This is Logan Sekulow. As terrorists infiltrate the border, Senators demand answers. Keeping you informed and engaged.

Now more than ever. This is Sekulow. We want to hear from you. Share and post your comments.

Or call 1-800-684-3110. And now your host, Logan Sekulow. Welcome to Sekulow. This is Logan Sekulow sitting in today. We also have Will Haines, executive producer of the broadcast, sitting in as well. We're going to take your calls at 1-800-684-3110 and your comments via rumble, Facebook, YouTube, however you want to get them to us. We'll take some of those on the air as well. We wanted to open up this show talking about a new bill that was presented by Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana and Senator Roger Marshall who will actually be on later in the broadcast. So make sure you stay tuned for that. The second half of the show he'll be joining us about a new bill they introduced called the Where Are The Terrorists Now Bill. Essentially getting a report will where they'll have to actually, Border Patrol will actually have to report back and say here's how many people are coming through, who they are from the terror watch list.

As we know it's getting more and more each and every day it seems like. That's right and that's something that we have fought hard for at the ACLJ for a while now. We filed the FOIA request when we saw a cover-up by the Border Patrol and by the Department of Homeland Security when they had Yemeni nationals that were on the terror watch list and they pulled down the press release and they tried to cover it up and then they were concerned the horse was out of the barn was like a direct quote that we uncovered from the FOIA request. But what this bill does is help that process so that the American people can see accountability and they can also make sure that we know what's going on and that Congress can act appropriately.

Yeah it seems like pretty common sense here because this bill would require the Department of Homeland Security as we said to provide a monthly report to Congress disclosing the number of illegal migrants who have come over that are on the FBI's terror watch list that U.S. officials encounter at the southern border. So that's a pretty, seems like it should not be a controversial thing. It's something that we as Americans should know. It's definitely something that Senators should know.

Again, doesn't feel controversial. Of course it's going to be. As we know there's also all of this happening when the war in Israel is starting to really kick up as we know there was one of the largest ground invasions last night. Not a full-scale invasion.

I probably need to take that back. But ground action. Incursion was the word that was used, yeah.

Yeah so that is really on the brisket. Obviously we also have what's going on. I don't want to forget about it or not mention obviously the mass shooting that happened in Maine last night. Obviously a horrible situation and they still are having this manhunt currently to try to locate this shooter. Horrible situation. Can't imagine again just that this keeps happening. It's just appalling. It's horrible to see. So I'm not going to ignore that. That being said we do have a lot of content to cover today.

A lot of stuff that's happening in the news whether that's in the country or the global stage. I want you to give me a call at 1-800-684-3110. 1-800-684-3110 with your questions or comments. We are going to be joined as Will said a little bit later by Senator Roger Marshall from Kansas. He's the one who put up this bill. Again the Where Are The Terrorists Now Act as well as we'll be joined by Mike Pompeo later on.

So it's going to be a very packed show. In the meantime I did also want to tell you about becoming an ACLJ Champion. I'm going to remind you of this a few times today because it is headed towards the very end of this month.

This has been our champions push for the entire month and we are only let me see the final number here. 298 short of our goal and what an ACLJ Champion is is a recurring supporter whether it's defending Israel or working on Capitol Hill. The courts defend your freedom. We need your support every month and we're facing major challenges whether that's defending Christians in numerous cages where they've been targeted for their faith.

On the small scale like Bible studies banned companies refusing to give them out of churches or the FBI the biggest scale FBI planning spies in churches. We also saw the 14th amendment battles we've been involved in yesterday we had one and we're taking on new cases of Jewish students and Christians. Obviously you've seen the protests that are happening in the really the unsafe situation for Jewish students and pro-Israel supporting students on college campuses and we are getting involved directly in that.

We're working to defend Israel also at the UN which they desperately need. We can't do that without your support. Sometimes these cases take days.

Sometimes they take years. Your recurring monthly donation is crucial to keeping us in these fights. So right now let's go to ACLJ.org slash champions ACLJ.org slash champions. Become a champion today get only 298 short of our goal for the month. We only have six days left to meet that goal. We'd love to do it today.

Become a champion at ACLJ.org slash champions. Be right back with more on Sekulow. Welcome back to Sekulow.

We are going to take your calls at 1-800-684-3110. We obviously talked about early in that first segment about the bill that is being placed by Senator Marshall and by Senator Kennedy. And we should take a listen. This is from the hearing just was it yesterday just yesterday from Senator John Kennedy. He's talking to the assistant director of Homeland Security Investigations.

So take a listen. Since President Biden's been President, how many non-American citizens have come into our country illegally or on the basis of a claim of asylum? Thank you, Senator. HSI is an investigative agency. Do you know the number? No, Senator. You're a senior member of Homeland Security, are you not?

That's correct. Does anybody know the number? None of you know the number. Try 8 million.

And that is from Senator John Kennedy. And it also we do have some of those other numbers we can go through, including the just apprehensions alone. There was more than 2.4 million apprehensions in the 2023 fiscal year, which just ended the fiscal year ended back in September. And that tops the previous record, which was only set, guess when?

Last year for more than 2.3 million. So, you know, it ticked up another 100,000. Right. And this is the problem that we've seen from the start of this administration and we've been calling attention to it. And the American people are concerned about it.

It's an infiltration. It is millions and millions of people that they encounter. These are just the ones that are not gotaways. Gotaways are those that cross the border and they don't catch. Yeah, 2.4 million apprehensions. Right. So when Senator Kennedy uses that number like 8 million, he's probably close, at least to what that is.

We have actually some more from him we could play in just a minute. But when you think about that, and we know that hundreds of people on the terror watch list, the FBI terror watch list, have crossed the border under this administration. Many have been caught. What about those gotaways?

Once again, the ones you don't know. But as we see, like the San Diego Office of the Border Patrol putting out a situational awareness memo concerning Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, that they are saying, hey, just be aware. These fighters could try to infiltrate our southern border. That shows the concern within the good people on the ground in the San Diego field office.

That's also the office that put out the press release that we saw that was taken down and did FOIA to find out why. When they're trying to showcase, look, we're doing the work. We're trying to stop terrorists from coming in our country. And yet some people that are at the highest levels of these agencies don't even know the figures of people that are coming in. It's as if they don't care.

And we've seen this over and over again. It's finally starting to get where Biden's like, OK, maybe now we need some funds for the border. And he put that in that big appropriation bill that he wants, you know, 60 billion for Ukraine, a lot less for Israel, less for the border.

But at least they're trying to get funding now. But you see how easily borders can be exploited. It's why the Egyptians have shut off their border to Gaza, because they don't want the terrorists like Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, to exploit a porous border, chaotic border, when there's refugees and migrants trying to cross.

And that's what we're seeing here in the United States. And look, this is the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They are saying that they may potentially be encountered at the southwest border.

Who is it? Hamas militants may potentially be trying to cross the border, people involved in the Israel-Hamas war. Now, somewhat you go, of course, that's going to be the case. I'm glad they're putting out that warning, because that warning is probably accurate, that this is what's happening. So it's not all these customs and border patrol agents.

It's their fight. There's no funding. There's a lot of sensitivity with this issue, as there should be. We're talking about human beings, human lives, and how do you determine whether this person is seeking some form of asylum, not directly asylum, not the technical term of asylum, or escaping something. How do you judge that based on the person who's a terrorist? Well, the easy way is, the first one is, are they on a terror watch list? And that is all that these senators are really asking for, which is just, hey, we want to know how many people on the terror watch list are coming through each and every month. You need to provide a report to us.

Well, and here's also the problem. We know that when the press release went up about the Yemeni nationals that were caught, fortunately, that were on the terror watch list, once that field office put that press release out, the main office in D.C. had to get it down. They didn't want that out there, right? Same thing happening here with the situational awareness memo out of San Diego is that it gets out there. Fox reported on it. Daily Caller reported on it. Okay, you can say those are conservative outlets. ABC News reported on this memo. So journalists have done the reporting and felt confident to report that this is work product from the San Diego field office. Then, of course, the left comes out and tries to throw water on that because that defeats the narrative of an open border that they want. And this is Vice News.

So, you know, a more liberal out there, progressive publication. But they sent an email to the Border Patrol office in D.C. and asked about this memo. They replied with they could neither confirm nor speak to potentially improperly disclosed information or internal documents marked as law enforcement sensitive or for official use only. But then they also noted that it was labeled situational awareness, not threat assessment. So they're trying to say we can't confirm or deny, but we're not saying it's a direct threat. They're trying to cover up, once again, the good work of the San Diego field office by trying to gloss over the narrative that there is actual national security threats to the United States. And they're even putting on here. Here's like what the Hamas badges look like.

Here's what their logos look like, which also is maybe giving them a ridiculously low amount of credit. Being like, you think they're going to sneak in the United States? Maybe they are wearing their, you know, Hamas gear.

I feel like that's just a bit that's a bit too on the nose. Are they going to wear the green headband that they wear when they attack? Maybe if they're doing an actual invasion.

Well, sure. That's what they did in Israel. It's whether they're trying to sneak across.

I doubt they're going to be wearing their uniform. So I understand the situation saying, look, they should be warning of this. I think it is happening. Absolutely. Let's go ahead and take a phone call. Let's go to Phil who's calling in New York on Line 1 about the war in Israel. Let's go ahead.

Yeah, thanks for taking my call. My question is, if Hezbollah gets involved in this conflict in a big way, do you think America will intervene directly? I mean, do you think American planes will bomb Hezbollah targets in Lebanon? I'm not sure about the specifics of will they bomb Hezbollah targets in Lebanon, but do I think we'll get involved?

Yeah, I do. I think that America will get involved in some official capacity if there is this sort of war. Because sadly, I don't want to say this out loud, if there is a war involving now Lebanon or Iran and the countries surrounding Israel, you are at sort of the beginning stages of a world war. Especially with NATO and some of the things that they have to buy into. There are treaties. There are things that we have to do. We have to respond if there is a direct attack on NATO allies.

That's right. And we also know that there's reporting out just today that Biden, and this is from the Washington Post, Biden weighs striking Iranian proxies after attacks on U.S. troops. So the Pentagon confirmed this week that there were 13 different attacks in just a week on U.S. troops or personnel in the region. One U.S. contractor died of cardiac arrest after one of these attacks.

Others have been injured. So we already know that the target on American troops and personnel is looming there, but that it's growing. And the caller, he asked about the potential with Hezbollah. That is one of those Iranian proxies that is a lot more capable than even some of the terror groups maybe in Syria or in Iraq.

But the question does stand and that's what the Washington Post is saying. Biden weighs striking Iranian proxies after attacks on U.S. troops. Well, Hezbollah is an Iranian proxy and they are one of the stronger ones. So the concept of the U.S. engaging more aggressively, we're not that far away from it. And we're going to ask Secretary Pompeo some of these questions in the next segment as he joins us with his expertise.

That's right. He'll be joining us as well. If you have a question or comment, 1-800-684-3110. As you said, there will be Mike Pompeo will be joining us. Then later on, we have Senator Marshall who's putting up that new bill, which we have, we've been talking about the whole show, the Where the Terrorists Now Act. So we're going to have that coming up later on.

As we head into this break, of course, I want to tell you about becoming an ACLJ champion. I'm going to tell you about it almost each and every break. So get used to it because I think right now is an important time.

As we just said in that last call, I don't like using the words World War. I think that's scary, something I hate to even think about with my kids or that we'll have to have this discussion. But sadly, it's becoming more and more, I don't want to say inevitable, but it feels that way. It feels like we are headed towards something much bigger than any of us have experienced in our life. And I don't want that to happen.

I desperately do not want that to happen. So with that, we have some incredible resources here, but we need your support because we have offices in Jerusalem. We have offices all around the world, places we can say, places we can't say, obviously all around this country. So if you need legal help or our friends in Israel need legal help or if Presidents of the United States or if senior leaders need help, we can be there and support the work that they're doing. All you need to do is help out because right now, all of that work, if you want to need legal help, come to ACLJ, no cost, no cost to you.

Well, how does that work? Well, it works because we have incredible ACLJ champions. Those who have said it said every month, I will dedicate a certain amount of resources monthly on a recurring basis to the ACLJ. And right now, this is the first time we've ever asked specifically for recurring donors, people to get involved and become ACLJ champions. So right now, we're trying to do this throughout the rest of the month. We only got six days left.

We are only 298 short of our goal to become a champion today. Welcome back to Secula. We are now joined by Senior Counsel for Global Affairs, former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, who is joining us via phone. Secretary Pompeo, I just wanted to start this off. A lot of news has been coming out, but we're now finding out at least that 500 Hamas terrorists were trained in Iran in the days just leading up to the October 7th attacks in Israel. It feels like the Biden administration is playing catch-up when it comes to this threat. I want to get your thoughts on this knowing now that the Iranian connection is getting stronger and stronger.

Now, Jordan, you and I talked about this last week. One of the very first statements from the Biden administration on October 8th or 9th was we see no direct involvement. They used that word direct from Iran. You and I both knew that day that this was an Iranian attack. This was Iranian trained. This was Iranian funded. This was Iranian inspired.

It would not have happened without the Islamic Republic of Iran driving the behavior of these barbarians to kill 1400. And to still hold a dozen or so Americans hostage. And so the pretense that the Biden administration put out, frankly, I think so that they could avoid having to do the difficult task and the important task of deterring the Islamic Republic of Iran. I think that's why they maintained that position. It's becoming, it was already laughable.

I don't know where to go. It's now becoming dangerous to acknowledge that those Americans that were injured in Iraq were injured by the Iranians. That the Americans that are being held in Gaza today are being held by the Iranians.

Hezbollah, the IRGC senior leadership were all together in Beirut just in the last few days. It is very clear this is an Iranian effort to hold America, to damage America, Israel as a result of that. And we got to get serious about it and the Biden administration is going to need to do that. Mr. Secretary, now the Biden administration as reported by the Washington Post is weighing striking Iranian proxies after those attacks on the U.S. troops. We were confirmed from the Pentagon there were 13 in one week by these Iranian proxies. As he considers military strikes now and continues to be playing catch up after that entire discussion we just had. What do you see as the path forward as this continues to escalate with the Iranian Republic and the United States? So you nailed it.

That's the perfect description, playing catch up. Right? What should have been done is that Iraq should have feared American power sufficiently that there would still be 1400 Israelis alive today. And they simply didn't do that. America failed to deter Iraq. So they've got to catch up.

They've got to get on the front foot. Now 13 attacks on Americans inside of the Middle East. That won't be limited to the Middle East in the end. And so it's good that they're going to go after these proxy forces. That's necessary.

But it's going to be insufficient. If you're the Ayatollah or you're the Prime Minister or President Raisi or you're the head of the IRGC and you pay some knucklehead in the desert in western Iran to go fire artillery at American forces. And we go take that guy out, that terrorist out in western Iraq.

You're laughing because it costs you nothing. There was nothing that you put at risk. America put itself at risk. America was injured.

America had to spend its money, its time, its attention. And you sit in Iran not feeling that there will be any cost imposed on you. In the end, the way you de-escalate, the way you prevent more carnage, the way you keep Hezbollah out of this fight or the Iranians in Syria out of this fight is to impose real costs on the regime itself. We heard from the Ayatollah just yesterday or the last couple days specifically saying that Hezbollah, not a, or I'm sorry, Hamas, not a terrorist regime. These are freedom fighters if you will. These are people who are going, it was a wild statement.

Look, our audience may not know this. Currently, Iran's foreign minister is in New York City right now and, you know, they're technically holding international consultations. You treated Iran a bit differently. You did not let these people come into the country.

You treated them like terrorists. Why is this administration? I mean, we obviously could just say, I mean, look at the obvious, but it feels like this administration has decided to treat them very differently than it was under you. Since the beginning, the Biden administration has taken the Obama administration's lead with respect to how to deal with Iran. Their theory of the case was if we pay them enough, if we appease them enough, if we stop enforcing sanctions, they'll behave normally.

I think we can see that that's just foolish. And for four years, we demonstrated that you could both hold Iran accountable and avoid, you were talking earlier about world war, and actually reduce the risk that there is a set of larger, either regional or global fights, wars. If Iran feels free to move them at the cabin, if they don't feel like there's any threat, you'll get exactly that. Your point about the Iranian foreign minister is a good example. When his predecessor, foreign minister Zarif, the then foreign minister of Iran, wanted to come to New York ostensibly to do UN consultation, we denied him a visa. He had American blood on his hands. He killed American kids.

This guy's even worse. This guy's got thousands of Israeli people blood on his hands. Now, he to this day, he's in New York City today. He's in New York City, while Americans are being held in Gaza. That is unconscionable for this administration to have permitted that. And it is a theory of the case and suggest if we play nice with the Islamic Republic, then they'll play nice with us.

It is sheer folly, and it's dangerous for America. One final question here, Mr. Secretary, is the elephant in the room in all of this is the Iran deal that the Biden administration has been so desperately trying to get back in. And we know that based off of the way that Jake Sullivan has been running his shop there at the White House, as well as people like Robert Malley, who have now found themselves without a job because of how close they were with the Iranians. What do you think the prognosis is on the Iranian nuclear deal with the Biden administration as it stands today?

I'm concerned about two things. The first is we got out of the deal because it provided a pathway for a nuclear weapon. The Biden administration essentially went back into it. They didn't formally sign it, but essentially went back to the policies that the nuclear deal required that gave Iran a green light. It's now legal for them to sell drones, missiles to Russia.

All of those are gone. But the other half of this is just it's about money. We began to impose real sanctions. We isolated Iran. They had some $4 billion foreign exchange reserves when we left. It's now almost $70 billion because sanctions aren't being enforced. That money will be used for two purposes, to build a nuclear program and to conduct terror campaigns across the world. It's certainly going to not go to the oppressed people inside of the Islamic Republic.

So it's an enormous failure of this administration to allow the Iranians to grow their GDP, to grow their wealth, so that they can comment precisely the kind of barbaric terror we saw on October 7th. Thank you, Secretary Pompeo. Your insights, obviously, expertise is just amazing and we're incredibly blessed to have you here at the ACLJ. Thank you for taking a few minutes today to chat with us and really to chat with our audience. As you know, everyone, as we head into this next half hour of Sekulow, I wanted to encourage you to, one, if you don't get us on your local station, I know I say this, a lot of you listen online or watch it on Rumble. Probably most of you watch it on Rumble, watch it on YouTube. You should. It's a cool show.

It looks visually fun to watch. So I encourage you to flip on over. If you're on an audio-only format, check us out on video, on Rumble, Free Speech Platform, on YouTube, on ACLJ.org. However you get your social media, we are there. Look at ACLJ, JSekulow, Sekulow, you'll find us there.

I trust you know how to work the Internet. But we have a second half hour coming up. We have Senator Marshall joining us who put in that bill, the Where the Terrorists Now Act. We're going to discuss that coming up with him in just a few minutes. But before then, I want you to go to ACLJ.org slash champions.

Listen to Mike Pompeo. We can't have expertise like that without people like you supporting on a monthly recurring basis. So right now, again, only 298 short of that goal. We'll see if we can get an updated number.

298 short of that goal. That was the beginning of the show. Go to ACLJ.org slash champions right now to become an ACLJ champion today. Keeping you informed and engaged. Now more than ever, this is Sekulow. And now your host, Logan Sekulow.

This is Logan Sekulow. We're going to take your calls at 1-800-684-3110. Actually, let's start off with a call. Let's go to William in Alabama on Line 1.

William, you're on the air. Yes. What's the point of having an oversight committee when, for example, Kennedy calls Mayorkas up and asks him questions about the border and he doesn't have any answers about anything that he doesn't know. And meanwhile, we've got tens of thousands of our enemies coming over the border and they're all over the nation just ready to do something that we don't want them to do.

So, you know, what's the point? Well, you know, what's frustrating about the whole situation, William, is that we've been having to talk about it for so long within the Biden administration. The bite from Senator Kennedy yesterday that we played where the leadership in the Department of Homeland Security didn't know the answers of how many people were coming across.

Clearly, that isn't the priority, which is odd for the Department of Homeland Security. But here's what we are seeing that's a little bit different now is that we have been hammering this. We have been exposing it.

We have been showing it. And President Biden did include 14 billion in that proposal for spending, probably as a carrot to Republicans to try to get it across the finish line so we could get a lot more aid to Ukraine. But there was 14 billion. Now, remember, Democrats said that I think it was 6 billion for a Trump border wall. We couldn't afford. But now they can easily throw out 14 billion to help secure the border. Why? Because it's chaotic. It is absolutely needed.

It is infiltration. You have the mayor of New York saying that the city can't survive how many migrants are being sent there. So, yes, it is a real crisis. But if those hearings weren't happening, then we wouldn't see it.

But also they control the funding. And we couldn't have gotten anything across in these last three weeks because there was no Speaker of the House. That all changed yesterday after we went off the air in the very first vote for Representative Johnson, Mike Johnson, now Speaker Johnson from Louisiana. He did something that hadn't happened since 2011 for a Republican candidate for speaker. He got the entire Republican conference unanimously to vote for him. So he has a mandate.

He has every Republican unified behind him. And I think things like border security, now that the craziness at the border that's going on, the Democrat run cities that are now saying we got to do something, I think that a Speaker Johnson can actually get something done, can get some of that funding, can get some security at the border. And that's something that we hadn't had for the past two years is unity within the Republican conference to combat a lot of the things that the left is doing. And so it is really important.

Yes, I understand it can be frustrating when you see hearing after hearing and you hear strong words, but not a lot of action. It also takes things like us filing FOIA requests, trying to get to the bottom of why they're covering up the terrorists we're getting in the country at all. It's steps like that that lead to legislation like the Where Are the Terrorists Now Act that we're going to talk with Senator Marshall about in the next segment about how important it is for that so that they can then appropriate the right money and hold the administration accountable for their failures. Yeah, we're going to absolutely talk about that with Senator Marshall coming up. We've been teasing it along the way and telling you it's coming up.

It's going to be a really interesting conversation. You're going to want to stay tuned for that because you're right, there are ways that accountability can be held. And look, some of this is putting the pressure on. I understand sometimes the answers are like Kennedy yesterday of how many people?

I don't know. Well, that also what that does is show the American people the failures of an administration. It also shows you the failures of what's happening. So you can at least expose not only the hypocrisy that's happening, but also the intelligence failures that is happening at the highest of levels. So sometimes you may not get the answer you want, but inadvertently that that answer you didn't want is what the American people need to see. And that is what's happening here right now. And that is what senators are trying to get done. And you're right. Now that there is a new Speaker of the House, things can start moving along. Mike Johnson tonight is going to be on Sean Hannity, on Hannity on Fox.

That'll be interesting. And currently, since we started this broadcast earlier, I told you we were at 298 short of our ACLJ Champion goal. Well, a lot of you responded. We are now only at 289 away from our goal. Those are people, remember, that does sound like a big jump. Those are people that are dedicating every month to be a part of the ACLJ at ACLJ.org slash champions.

Welcome back to Secula. We are joined by Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas. As we've been talking about, all broadcast is one who introduced the bill. Where are the terrorists now act? I'm going to ask you, Senator, just to start off for our audience, maybe just tuning in or maybe don't understand, what does your bill require? Especially of the DHS that's different from what's already being done when it comes to tracking people on the terror watch list.

Right. So we've had 170 terrorists on the watch list encountered at the border over the past year. We have no idea where they are, who they are, where they caught in release.

So what our bill does is it requires Secretary Mayorkas to communicate with Congress on a monthly basis. Give us an update on who these people are, where they are. Are they working for universities doing research? Are they working for our military? What are these people doing?

So it holds them accountable. And in addition to those 170 people on the terrorist list, there's also 60,000 people of interest from the Middle East, from Iran, Syria, Turkey, and Afghan. We want to know where those people are in addition to 20,000 Chinese nationalists that have been encountered at our borders over the past year. Senator, we know that the border has never been more open than it is right now. And the Biden administration doesn't want to admit that these members that are on, these migrants that are on the terror watch list are crossing the border. Shouldn't they have a better plan in place by this point when they've seen how much has been happening at the border than what they're doing right now?

Well, of course they would. I want to make two points. Number one, this is why we called in April this year for a resolution of no confidence in Secretary Mayorkas, hoping that would launch some type of an impeachment investigation on the House side. And point two is Joe Biden wants this problem. I mean, I go back home, people ask me, why doesn't Joe Biden fix this problem? He wants these 8 million people that have crossed the border under his watch. He wants them voting Democrats over the next years to come.

So Joe Biden wants this problem. All the more I'm frustrated with the fact on his latest legislation to fund Israel and Ukraine when his border solution was actually to make the asylum process more efficient so more people would be crossing the border. Yeah, but we want to talk to you a little bit later in this segment about specifically some of the work you've been doing in terms of Israel coming up. But we also know that hundreds of people are coming on from the terror watch list, as you said, have already been caught under this administration. I guess for the American people, as someone who's dealt with not just the terror watch list, the traditional we're thinking of, of what's going on in Israel, and obviously this has sparked a lot of this, but we all know about the fentanyl crisis.

We've all been directly involved in it in terms of everyone knows somebody or has a family member who sadly has either passed away or has had some sort of adverse effect to what's happening in this world, this crisis that really is one of our biggest threats. I guess what number is it? Is it hundreds?

Is it thousands? When is it going to be enough? What number is too many before we can all say this is enough?

Well, certainly here in the Senate, I'm starting to hear my friends across the aisle scream a little bit. And basically it's because you look at the state of New York, I think they've had 100,000 illegal migrants released into their state and just the tax that is on that state alone. But to your point, the number's already been hit. How can Joe Biden sleep at night when 300 Americans die every day from fentanyl poisoning? So over the past year, we've lost more young adults to fentanyl poisoning than we did the entire Vietnam War. We haven't touched on human trafficking, all the other atrocities that the cartel is doing.

The cartel is alive and well in the state of Kansas and in your state as well. So we should have hit that number a long time ago, and that's why I say don't listen to what Joe Biden says. Watch what he does. He actually wants this problem. He's trying to make it easier for illegal migrants to come into our nation. Senator, you alluded to it a little bit earlier, but you've introduced legislation with your colleagues in the Senate. Senator Vance, Senator Lee and Senator Cruz and some others as well I know have joined to essentially break out the funding that President Biden proposed that he tied to the Ukraine funding. Why do you believe this is important to separate these funds as it gets appropriated, to not have a bill that ties up all these issues into one? Yeah, it's so disappointing that the Biden administration won't state the situation in Israel clearly.

They need the funding yesterday. They're about to have three very active border wars, three fronts going on. Plus you have the Houthis in Yemen are launching missiles all the way to Israel.

You have action in Syria, in Iraq as well. Israel desperately needs the help yesterday. As opposed to the Ukraine funding, it's very controversial. It's dead on arrival in the house, and any type of process over here, we will debate it for weeks if not months if you include Ukraine funding. If we have a standalone Israel funding package, it'll be a near unanimous vote on the Senate and close to unanimous vote on the house. We could get this done this week and certainly by the first of next week. Leave it to Joe Biden to find a way to divide his own party and divide Congress.

The best present we could give the Speaker of the House right now would be legislation to secure the border with policy changes and build the wall, and then some type of a standalone package on Israel funding. Senator Marshall, we appreciate you coming on and discussing this and really breaking it down for our people. I do have one sort of last question, and that is a lot of our listeners, and there's just alone on social media, thousands, and there's millions that listen throughout the day or later on or on our podcast feed or on Rumble or on Terrestrial Radio. A lot of them call in and just say they feel lost. They feel like they have nothing that they can do to help. They'll hear people like you and go, okay, good, there's somebody out there representing me and can actually hopefully get some stuff done, but they feel a little lost. I'm just going to ask you, what should our listeners do to help?

How can they help? How can they support what's going on, whether it's this bill or any of the others that you're putting up? Yeah, so number one is elections have consequences. As long as the Democrats control the majority on the Senate, all we can do is fight and slow them down. As long as Joe Biden's in the White House, we're going to have a weak America.

You know, Joe Biden brings us war through weakness. So I think, you know, really just getting out the vote, what our plan is to chase the ballots, whatever you can do legally in your state as your folks start thinking about how do we chase these ballots legally? And the last thing I would say is this, the best thing you could do for me is find godly young men and women, and I say young, relatively young adults, with American values, run for the school board, run for the county commission, run for the county clerk. We need people in those positions who can stop some of these fears that Joe Biden's throwing at them. You know, even today we're fighting Joe Biden over schools, lunches, and the transgender issue, but he's going to take school lunches away from you unless you allow biological boys into girls' locker room and allow biological boys compete against girls. So I need these young folks that are believers running for school board, and if you're not going to run, then you know the person that should, that really busy person that's a professional, that has the same values that you and I share, that would be great school board members. I think that's where to stop.

Of course, reach out to your congressman and senator, but I really believe that we're going to do this from the grassroots up is where we need to have a change in America. Get down on our knees, confess our sins, and let's come back to God. Let's go back to church.

Let's go back to the synagogues. All right, thank you so much, Senator Marshall, for joining us on the broadcast today. That was last minute to get you on, but I appreciate you coming on to discuss your bill and everything else you got going on. I do want to encourage everyone right now to give us a call. I'm going to take as many calls as I can, so if you've ever wanted to say, hey, I'm on the radio, hey, I get my voice heard, it's a good time to do it. Give me a call, 1-800-684-3110. It could be about one of the topics we've talked about today, whether that's Israel, what's happening in obviously the war in Hamas and all of that, or it could be about the terror watch list at the border or the border in general, really any of our ACLJ type related issues. I'll try to get as many calls as I can.

1-800-684-3110. As I said in the last segment, we have seen already an uptick of people who've decided to become ACLJ champions. I want to encourage you all to do that as well. Just go to ACLJ.org slash champions.

There's a lot of great resources on our website. So even though, even if you can't support it, I understand this is some trying financial times, but we're asking, we've never asked to become a recurring member in terms of us on air. That has never happened, but this month we've done it.

We've said, you know what? It would be awesome. It would be amazing. It would be a godsend to be able to say we can project a year out, six months out, whatever it may be to create a real baseline for a massive vision we have for this organization that goes well beyond a radio show, a television broadcast, legal cases. We have so much plans and so big of a vision and we can't do that without support from you all. We can't have people like Mike Pompeo on this broadcast each and every week. It's not just part of the broadcast team. He's a part of the organization. We couldn't do that without your support.

And we're able to offer all this content and everything we do here at no cost to you. So if you're a, someone who supports us and wants to be really engaged in a different way, become an ACLJ champion, ACLJ.org slash champions. It's an important time to do it.

This is great. We're heading into the end of the year. We could really use it. And as a war is looming in Israel, not looming or is ongoing in Israel and just getting hotter and hotter every day.

We could use that support specifically for our offices in Israel and the amount of work we do with Israel and our support for them, whether that's at the UN or around the world. Give us a call though right now. 1-800-684-3110. We're going to take your calls coming up in the next segment. If you're on hold, stay on hold. Some of you have been on hold for a long time. The next segment is when we're going to do it. So again, give us a call.

1-800-684-3110. Also, if you're watching on Rumble, I'm going to ask you to click that follow button and click that thumbs up. If you're watching on YouTube, hit the subscribe button, hit that thumbs up. All that does is get more people to know about this broadcast. And through us, hopefully your point of view or similar points of view can be shared.

So again, hit the thumbs up, hit the like, whatever it may be, and tell your friends. We'll be right back with more on Secula. Alright, welcome back to Secula. We're going to wrap up today's show by taking all the calls we can.

So let's go ahead and start from the top. Let's go to Ralph who's calling on Line 6. Ralph, you're on hold for 30 minutes. Come from Louisiana, listening on the radio. Sorry for your wait, but you're on the air now.

No problem. We have a rule inside of America that all Americans actually know. It's he who has the gold makes the rules. So I appreciate a bill that is sponsored at telling us where these people are, these 8 million people are. But why don't they sponsor a bill that punishes the American employer for employing these people? If they did that, we didn't sell them cars, we didn't sell them anything, there'd be no reason to come here. The people who are truly guilty are the ones who are renting houses to them, the ones who are employing them. Yeah, Ralph, I think there are some of those in existence, like an e-verify laws that happen. Obviously, there's a lot that happens off the books.

We know that that's the case. Truthfully, though, there are a lot of people, I mean, sure, there are some that are giving them jobs, but truthfully, the concern that we have right now in a bigger scale is terrorists coming through, gangs coming through, people who are terrorizing our cities in terms of the drug cartels. That is, to me, the number one concern. Sure. Do you want to make it a little stricter?

Absolutely, you can. You can make it more strict in terms of the way that we handle employment here in the United States. But there are some of that stuff already in place. Sure, there's cash and gig work that's happening around the country. We're not going to be blind to that.

But to me, it's on the list, certainly, but it's not number one for me right now. The other factor to that is that you have to look at who would have to sign that legislation. President Biden is not likely to sign a legislation to strengthen that when he is expanding the pathways for asylum claims in the United States. So many of these people that arrive, the ones that are encountered, when you look at these millions that are encountered, they come and they then claim asylum. They make an asylum claim that say we are dealing with persecution at home and therefore we need to come to the United States to seek asylum. Once they claim that, it's a different process than if they were just caught and not claiming asylum. And the Biden administration is expanding pathways for asylum claims. There's a huge backlog in the asylum court cases, therefore you get a court date and many times you never show up or they never end up seeing a judge because they end up being in the United States for decades before they get to their backlogged case.

It's millions of backlogged cases. So the reality on the ground is legislation like that would be nice, but it's not at this point a feasible pathway to get something like that signed. That's why something that's holding the administration accountable, I actually feel like Senator Marshall could get some bipartisan support because there are many U.S. Senators that are concerned, especially in this moment when you see what happened in Israel, when you see the border patrol memo on the potential of Hamas exploiting our southern border. We already know that these terrorist organizations are. You could see bipartisan support.

So that Congress can be armed with the appropriate information from the administration, I think it could get through. We'll see. Alright, let's move on. Let's go to the next call. Let's go to Joanne who's calling in Ohio on Line 1. Calling from Ohio but watching on ACLJ.org. You're on the air.

Hi guys. I think Senator Marshall kind of said this too, but in that money that Biden is proposing for Ukraine and Israel and the border, that border money is to facilitate moving these people out into the country. It's not for mass deportation. It's time that everybody understands whatever Joe Biden and the Democrats are putting forward is disingenuous in some way. I mean, we have to start thinking about this. I mean, this is, you know, this money isn't to get people out.

This money is to figure out a better way to get them in. Yeah, absolutely. And I think that is something that we've tried to say here also. We do believe there should be definitely a reform in the way that the process at the border takes place, whether that is, like you said, just the idea of deporting millions and millions of people, just the time and resources, virtually impossible.

As much as some of you may call in and say you want it, that's not the case. So what can we do now that people are here? We're going to keep working through that. Glad to get your voice heard on the air. Continuing on, let's go to Terry who's calling in Ohio. Listen on the radio, Terry, you're on the air. Hi, thank you. And thank you guys at ACLJ for everything you do.

We really, really appreciate it. We've got an issue one in Ohio, which is just a terribly written issue. Roe v. Wade was kicked out and now a lot of the Democrats are reacting emotionally and saying we want to have our abortion rights back and they're going to vote for this. And it's way broader than just abortion.

It puts the state in charge and takes away parental rights and obligations. Yeah, Terry, we're seeing this across the country. We are seeing these radical pro-abortion laws being put in place in states that are, you're right, reacting to the overturning of Roe last year to a point of, look, and honestly, we're losing some of these. So we really need the help to not only have people like you out there, but have people who can go make strong statements for life right now because overturning Roe obviously was a massive win. But what's come of it is 50 new cases or 50 new state laws that could come to place. Obviously you have states maybe in the south where it's become much more restrictive.

And then you have states in the north and you have states in the west where it's become so unrestricted to where the taxpayer money is flying people in. It's a wild time right now and we are involved in so many of those cases and I appreciate you calling in, Terry, a lot of fighting for life as well across the country. Let's go ahead and go to Shana who's calling in Pennsylvania online for Shana. You're on the air. Hi, I'm calling.

I have a message. So I'm Jewish. I have a son in Israel in the year abroad program and my message to the world is that if you don't see the truth, then clearly you don't want to because the issue going on in Israel is black and white.

There's no opinion. It is a fact that Israel is being persecuted, that the Jewish people there are being killed and slaughtered for no reason. These people are full of hate and anybody going to these Palestinian marches, by the way, any of you who are in a minority group, that's just ridiculously stupid because they hate you. They would kill anybody in a minority group. Gay people, black people, it doesn't matter.

They don't like you. Shana, we are sitting there seeing this across the country, seeing these protests. My wife and I were talking about last night how it's one of the most disturbing things we could even imagine happening. You see at Cooper Union last night where Palestinian protesters, security had to lock the Jewish students in a room in the library and the protesters were banging on the doors, persecuting, intimidating, striking fear in the Jewish students in America. Hey, I want to quickly take Moshe who's calling in New York right now because we are running out of time.

He just came back from Israel. We only have about 30 seconds for you, but I appreciate you calling in. Hello, how are you? Good. Go ahead.

Okay. Listen, I'm listening to your program, which is beautiful, very interesting. And me personally, I have a radio station in Miami in Hebrew, of course, but I just want to tell you something.

I was in the front line two weeks ago in the day of Simchat Torah, which is a Jewish holiday, very, very holy holiday. And when people go into dance with the Torah and everything, all of a sudden you're getting a thousand or $2,000 missiles on top of people, children, innocent people, pregnant women. They don't care what they do. They have one thing in their mind to kill, to kill and take over the whole nation, not only Israel. You have to understand that five years from today, Europe is going to be a Muslim country.

You're not going to be able to do it. And you see that in our country here in America. They're taking over every area, every piece. I am not cutting you off because I disagree or I'm not cutting off because we are just out of time. I appreciate you calling in, telling us your experience in Israel, what's happening.

I think a lot of people in Europe are feeling that same pressure that you're feeling as well. Thank you though for calling. I'm going to look up your radio station actually in Israel. Maybe we can find out what it is. I'd love to know. I'm in Miami.

It's a Hebrew station. That'd be very interesting to hear. Let's find that out from him. Here's the deal.

We only got 10 seconds left. I'm just going to tell you. Become an ACLJ Champion today. Go to ACLJ.org slash champions. That's ACLJ.org slash champions. Become a recurring donor. The ACLJ we'll talk to you tomorrow.
