Grassley sounds alarm on potential drone threat at southern border amid Hamas terror concerns

In his letters, Grassley called for a slew of information from the departments including the number of drones that crossed into U.S. territory, ties to cartels or terror groups of operators, the types of drones used and the types of payload.

He also wants to know whether terrorist groups or those tied to such groups have advised cartels on how to make bomb-carrying drones, and what the agencies are doing to combat the threat, including assistance the agencies have offered to Mexico.

The ATF told Fox News Digital it has received the senator’s letter and looks forward to responding to him, while ICE also responds to congressional correspondence through official channels. CBP confirmed it has received the letter and also responds directly to congressional correspondence. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
