Now that Florida has sent 50 illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard, perhaps other states will send the growing list of apprehended illegal border crossers on the FBI Terrorist Watch List to Joe Biden’s beach house in Delaware?
U.S. Border Patrol agents have now arrested 78 individuals on the FBI Terrorist Watchlist so far this year. One can only wonder how many were not caught among the hundreds of thousands of “got-aways” that crossed the border undetected.
Washington Times(h/t Nita)Customs and Border Patrol have stopped a dozen individuals whose names are on the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) in August, bringing the total for the fiscal year to a number that is triple the previous five fiscal years combined – as agents deal with a historic migrant surge at the border.
New data released by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) this week show that there were 12 individuals encountered by Border Patrol between ports of entry at the border whose names matched on the TSDB – which contains information about the identities of those who are known or “reasonably suspected” of being involved in terrorist activities.
August’s apprehensions bring the total for FY 22 to 78 so far, with two months still to go in the fiscal year. That is triple the prior five years combined. There were two arrests in FY17, six in FY18, zero in FY 19, three in FY20 and 15 in FY21.
The new numbers represent a sharp increase as the Biden administration faces growing pressure to tighten security at the border: Just 15 suspected terrorists were caught in all of the fiscal year 2021, and just 11 were caught in total from 2017 to 2020.
“Who’s in the gaggle of 700,000-plus Southwest border got-aways, which is larger than the population of Boston? No idea,” Andrew Arthur, a former immigration judge and legal fellow at the conservative Center for Immigration Studies, wrote in a June blog post . “We won’t know who the worst ones are until they act. But the worst ones are plainly coming.”
