Today on "The Chris Salcedo Show," Congressman Michael McCaul (R-Texas), chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security joined Chris Salcedo to discuss the recent ISIS suicide bombing in Manchester, England. He is also author of the brand new book, "Failures of Imagination: The Deadliest Threats to Our Homeland--and How to Thwart Them."

The congressman told Chris that he has been working with our European partners for years now, warning them that their very open borders create vulnerability to terrorists. He also said they have not been helpful in sharing intelligence with the United States.

He warned that "we will see more of this." He felt Theresa May, the British prime minister, seems to understand this threat and noted that Britain takes jihadist material off of the internet.

Pop singer Katy Perry, on the other hand, does not seem to understand. She spoke of open borders and co-existing in response to the deaths of 22 Ariana Grande fans and over a hundred more injured. McCaul said, "Everybody wishes we could all get along. ... But the fact of the matter is that is not the mindset of the jihadist."

Rather than open borders, he advocated that the U.S. take care of "vulnerabilities and gaps in our security system" so terrorists do not make their way into the country.
