U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents have admitted that they have nabbed 38 people on the U.S. terror watchlist.
But the bigger question is… how many have they missed?
In fiscal year 2022, CBP apprehended 98 people whose names appeared on the terror watchlist trying enter the US illegally. That number is on pace to top 150 in fiscal year 2023.
The watchlist was established after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks as a federal database of known terrorists who are not US citizens, according to the FBI. It has since expanded to include suspected terrorists and their known affiliates.
Between Oct. 1, 2016, and Sept. 30, 2020, only 11 people on the terror watchlist were arrested trying to enter the US from Mexico.
In fiscal year 2021, there were 15 arrests related to the terror watchlist before spiking to 98 between Oct. 1, 2021, and Sept. 30, 2022.
Biden’s border s so wide open, so entirely unprotected that terrorists are wandering over the border at will.
Hundreds of thousands of illegals are swamping our border because of Biden’s disastrous policies.
Per the paper, “The latest numbers from CBP indicate there were 251,487 border encounters in December — the first time on record that number has topped 250,000.”
Great job, Joe.
Democrats make every single American less safe.Commentary
