U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) returned from a recent trip to the Darien Gap in Panama, warning of ISIS troops invading the U.S. southern border.

After predicting Vice President Kamala Harris would take the top spot on the Democratic ticket in November due to President Joe Biden's apparent mental decline, Tuberville told Fox News's Maria Bartiromo on ​​"Sunday Morning Futures" about his Panama trip, during which he got a firsthand look at how those who illegally cross the Darien Gap can end up crossing into the U.S.

"I went to the inauguration of José Mulino of Panama. He's all about closing the border down because a lot of the people coming across the border are staying in Panama. They can't afford them, like us," Tuberville said. "But, at the end of the day, I talked to some operatives down there and they say that they're really worried that 5,000 to 10,000 people a day coming across the Darién Gap. Unfortunately, they say the most important and the scariest thing happening is people coming from Africa, and they're ISIS, and they're coming across and they're coming straight to the border, southern border, of America and coming into our country."

He continued, "And they're coming by the droves. They're not coming by 5 or 10 or 15. They're coming every day. Most of the people coming across are from Venezuela, who at this time are having a revolution, but a high percentage of them are coming from Africa, and they're ISIS. And there's nothing we can do about it. We can't stop them."

Tuberville said Mulino plans to stop the flow of illegals across the Panama border, but it's unlikely he'll get any help from the Biden administration despite how it might benefit the U.S., which is also seeing an influx of Chinese nationals crossing the border.

"[A] 7000% increase in people coming from China across our southern border. You can't make this up," Tuberville said. "This can't be a worse scenario for the United States of America than what's going on right now. And we have still got six more months of these clowns running the White House that are fully compliant of allowing them to come. Number one, we can't afford it. And listen to the FBI Director. There is going to be a national disaster with some people coming across this border and it's going to be all on the backs of the Democrats. They have done this to the United States of America and to the American citizens. They should be absolutely ashamed."
