When Ben Bergquam is reporting from the border, he is putting his life on-the-line to bring the American people the news they need to understand the situation that is unfolding into chaos.
We notice that in the most recent episode of Law and Border, Ben is seen in a bullet-proof vest while talking to local law enforcement about the ‘stash housing’ that has been seized by border patrol, as seen in this clip:

According to Fox News the situation is very, very dangerous:
Border Patrol arrests of migrants on the terror watch list at the southern border in Fiscal Year 2022 has already eclipsed prior years – amid a massive migrant wave hitting the border.
In Fiscal Year 2022 there have been 50 arrests of migrants on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) at the southern border by Border Patrol between ports of entry
That’s compared to 15 in FY21, which was up from three in FY20 and zero in FY19. There were six in FY18 and two in FY17 — meaning that the numbers this year are already higher than the previous five years combined.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) started posting the numbers online last month, after promising Republicans on the House Homeland Security Committee who had peppered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with requests that the number of those encountered who were recorded on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) be given to Congress and made public.
CBP had previously stopped publicly posting updates on TSDB encounters at the border shortly after President Biden took office, labeling the information as “law enforcement sensitive” — frustrating lawmakers in the process.
The numbers caught by Border Patrol at the southern border are one part of the total number of encounters at the border in general.
