“The suicide bombings in Kabul today – the suicide bombings in the United States tomorrow. Biden must secure our southern border IMMEDIATELY before it is too late!” he added from another Twitter account. “Our southern border is not secure at a time when international terrorism is at its height. America, please remain vigilant at all times. If you see anything, say something.”

The attack on Kabul airport in Afghanistan killed at least 13 U.S. service members and injured at least 18 others, U.S. officials said, making it the deadliest day for the U.S. military in more than 10 years. More than 90 Afghans have also been killed.

“To those who carried out this attack, as well as to all those who wish America harm on America, know this: We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay,” Biden said. .

Thursday’s attack was the deadliest day for U.S. troops since insurgents in Afghanistan shot down a U.S. Chinook helicopter in August 2011, killing 38 people, including 31 U.S. soldiers.

Gonzales, who serves the 23rd Congressional District of Texas, expressed his condolences to the victims killed in the attack on Kabul.
