Daily Mail reported:
House Republicans are pushing a bill that would authorize the National Guard to use lethal force against individuals with weapons crossing from Mexico into the U.S.
The Defend Our Borders from Armed Invaders Act was introduced by Republican Rep. Morgan Luttrell of Texas, a former Navy SEAL who served in the Navy for 14 years.
In the last year, there have been multiple instances of migrants crossing into the U.S. carrying weapons, with some brandishing rifles like the AR-15.
The open border has become very dangerous for civilians as well as for those defending it. An estimated 11 million illegals have entered the US in the last three years.
A Fox News report from August 2023 showed armed men crossing the border into the US through Texas.

The open border has also prompted major concerns of terrorists entering the US.
The bill is a major step forward in border security. However, until the Federal Government secures the border, the invasion will continue.
