During a House subcommittee hearing on Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said he couldn’t "speak to" the sharp increase of individuals on the terror watch list crossing the border.
"Why do you think in the four years before this, there were only 11?" asked House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Law Enforcement, and Intelligence Committee member Mark Green. "And suddenly, there are 294 in the past few years, why do you think that?"
"I can’t really speak to, you know, to that issue," Wray responded. "it’s not in my lane."
