In March, a 22-year-old man, Basel Bassel Ebbadi, was apprehended by the Border Patrol near El Paso, Texas, after allegedly claiming ties to Hezbollah and an intent to execute a terrorist attack in New York City. With a history of jihadist training from the age of 15, Ebbadi’s arrest raises concerns about the internal threat posed by individuals with terrorist affiliations entering the U.S. He cited a desire to leave his past behind as the reason for his entry into the country, although he’s now facing deportation.

Do you believe the U.S. needs stricter border controls to prevent potential threats?
