Of all the poor decisions and actions that have been taken by American Presidents and their administrations, not securing our borders / poor immigration policies, have immeasurably affected our national security, affecting tens of millions of U.S. Citizens, especially those living in border states.
In reality, when considering how many Communists and terrorists from nations including China, Iran, and Afghanistan have been caught, some of whom have made public declarations of wanting to take down the USA, an open border with an invasion underway has to be part of their dreams come true.
In May Border Patrol agents at the U.S. southern border apprehended another 15 people on the FBI’s terrorist watchlist, a record number for any one month.
The number of potential terrorists busted crossing the southern border during fiscal 2002, which runs from October 2021 through September, rose to 50.
That’s more than the total of 30 caught crossing both the southern and northern borders during fiscal 2017 through 2021.
The possible terrorists were among the staggering 239,416 migrants encountered at the southern border last month, according to a breakdown of Customs and Border Protection figures first reported by the Washington Times and obtained by The Post.
The total number of May crossings marks the highest number of migrant encounters recorded in one month ever and brings the total migrant encounters in FY 2022 to more than 1.5 million, according to the latest data released by CBP Wednesday.
CBP said people who appear on the terrorist database and are picked up after entering the US can be detained and removed or turned over to another government agency or law enforcement authorities for prosecution.
With DHS Secretary Mayorkas removing former President Trump’s tough immigration policies, the record invasion of illegals over the border has taken agents off the line and instead is being used to process the backlog of illegal immigrants who already made it and are waiting for processing.
As expected, immigration experts are sounding the alarm that others on the terror list at the border, may have already snuck in undetected with others in the wings, waiting to cross over too.
“The big worry is with the chaos down there, when you have these kinds of people coming to the border, you have to assume that some of them got in,” Todd Bensman, author of “America’s Covert Border War,” about how terrorists try to exploit the immigration system, told the Washington Times.
Bensman, who tracked potential terrorists when he worked for the TDPS, said the new total is a “bad number,”
“It’s always a five-alarm fire if somebody comes over who’s on the TSDB,” he told the newspaper, referring to the Terrorist Screening Database.
Mark Morgan, CBP commissioner during the Trump administration, said the 15 encounters of people on the watch list and the surge in the overall number of migrants indicate a “legitimate national security vulnerability on our southern border.”
“I’m concerned that the next terrorist attacker is already in the United States because of this administration’s open border policies,” Morgan told the Washington Times.
Rep. John Katko (R-NY) was criticized last year when he expressed concern among agents that terror suspects were entering the US.
“Fast forward a year, and our initial concerns have not only been vindicated but have grown to represent one of the most disturbing facets of the Biden administration’s border crisis,” Katko told the newspaper in a statement Thursday.
My concern is just like when the terrorists from Saudi Arabia, came to the US for “pilot training”, more terrorists from multiple nations have and will continue to cross into our nation moving forward to carry out another 911 on innocent Americans.
