Terrorists and the Southern Border

(DCWatchdog.com) – Striking new data is emerging about the illegal immigrant invasion as US government data has revealed that Border Patrol officers have busted more aliens from the terrorism watchlist in the past four months alone than their total number in the four years between 2017 and 2021.

More than 10 million border jumpers managed to enter the United States through the US-Mexican border in the three years in which Joe Biden has been in charge at the White House.

That number includes about 2 million known gotaways who were never apprehended, according to figures from the US Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP).

The latest CBP data now shows that between October 2023 and January 2024, US Border Patrol officers detained a higher number of undocumented immigrants listed on the terror watchlist than the total apprehended from fiscal years 2017 to 2021

The CBP updates about this four-month period have disclosed that 59 illegal immigrants found on the terror watchlist were apprehended across the country, according to federal statistics, The Daily Caller reports.

Comparatively, from fiscal year 2017 to 2021, Border Patrol captured 30 individuals on the watchlist.

The apprehension of migrants on the terror watchlist by Border Patrol surged to 172 in fiscal year 2023 and stood at 98 in fiscal year 2022.

The Caller stresses the significant increase of migrants on the terror watchlist attempting to cross the Southern Border unlawfully.

Thus, on February 5, Border Patrol arrested an Afghan national listed on the terror watchlist after he illegally entered California from the Southern Border, as revealed by an exclusive internal federal memo.

In January, ICE officials in Minnesota detained a member of the Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab, who had entered the United States via the Southern Border illegally, despite his prior release by authorities.

Moreover, on February 6, border agents apprehended an individual who unlawfully crossed the Southern Border and confessed his past association with a Colombian terrorist group, as disclosed by an exclusive internal CBP memo.

Federal authorities had briefly released a Pakistani national in November, who entered California illegally from the southern border and was found on the terror watchlist, according to an ICE memo.

Additionally, following the October 7 terrorist attack in Israel, federal authorities cautioned Border Patrol to be vigilant for terrorists from Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah potentially entering illegally through the southern border, based on an internal memo.
