WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Morgan Luttrell last week introduced the Cartel and Radical Terrorist Enforcement Log Act, which requires Customs and Border Protection to report if individuals on the Terrorist Screening Database were released into the interior of the United States along with individuals affiliated with cartel organizations.

Additionally, this bill requires a report to Congress detailing which terrorist and cartel organizations are attempting to exploit the northern, southern, and maritime borders to move their members into the United States.

“Due to the Biden Administration’s failed policies, dangerous cartels are controlling our borders and profiting from extensive human and drug trafficking,” Luttrell said. “Combatting these deadly cartels starts with knowing exactly who is exploiting our border and coming into our communities.”

The Cartel and Radical Terrorist Enforcement Log Act requires Customs and Border Patrol to report on:

•Terrorist Screening Database hits and whether the individuals were released into the interior of the United States, in addition to reports on getaway numbers.

•The total number of individuals affiliated with cartel organizations who have repeatedly attempted to cross unlawfully into the United States.

•The total number of individuals affiliated with cartel organizations who have been apprehended, including information relating to whether such individuals were released into the United States or removed.

•Requires a report to Congress detailing which terrorist and cartel organizations are attempting to exploit the northern, southern, and maritime borders to get their members in.

The requirement to report on terrorist hits was secured in the Secure the Border Act (HR 2) by Luttrell. This new legislation expands that provision to transnational criminal organizations (cartels).

This legislation is cosponsored by Reps. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), Anthony D’Esposito (R-New York), Michael Guest (R-Mississippi), Kat Cammack (R-Florida), Neal Dunn (R-Florida), Bill Posey (R-Florida), Mike Lawler (R-New York), Andrew Garbarino (R-New York), Mike Ezell (R-Mississippi), Carlos Gimenez (R-Florida), Clay Higgins (R-Louisiana), and Dan Webster (R-Florida).

    Anyone releasing these criminals into the United States should be arrested themselves. We cannot take 4 more years of Biden and his broken policies.
