23 People on Terrorist Watchlist Apprehended at Southern Border in 2021

CBP

In just the 2022 fiscal year so far, over 1 million migrant encounters have occurred at the Southern border. Republican leadership as well as local political in border states demand the Biden administration impose greater scrutiny as to who is allowed across our borders.

In 2021, Border Patrol apprehended at least 23 individuals who were listed on the terror watchlist in 2021. The data, released by the Customs and Border Protection (CBP), notes that between January 20, and December 27 of 2021, there were 23 encounters with individuals whose names matched on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).

Fox News submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in December in order to unearth the information from the CBP. Fox News reports that of the 23 suspects, “four were in the Rio Grande Valley Sector, 4 in Del Rio Sector, 3 in El Paso Sector, 2 in Tucson Sector, 2 in Yuma Sector, 4 in El Centro Sector and 4 in San Diego Sector.”

Unfortunately, the terrifying information is not completely unknown, and the Biden administration continues to push back. Republican Representatives James Comer and John Katko, who serve as ranking members on the Oversight and Homeland Security committees wrote to Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas of the Department of Homeland Security last month addressing the grave concern.

Republican lawmakers consistently call upon the Biden administration to publicly release the number of those encountered at the border. “Reporting indicates that multiple individuals with terrorist ties have been recently apprehended after illegally crossing the border, and that such encounters may be increasing,” wrote Reps. Comer and Katko.

“The American people deserve to know whether President Biden’s weak border policies are allowing terrorists to enter our homeland,” they said. Back in October, former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott repeatedly tried to alert the Biden administration on the amount of terror watchlist suspects that were crossing into the United states.

Scott said the levels of TSDBs are “at a level we have never seen before” and told Fox News’ Bret Baier “we have terrorist threats we can’t get into in this type of a forum but they are real.”

    No problem… they’ll be released in the nature on the simple promise to appear before a court… sometime in the future… which of course they’ll never do…

    How about telling what happened to those people instead of their just being CAUGHT! Tell us of the
    ones that “slipped through” and our killing and destroying American while Biden is lost at the mic and
    can’t find himself off a platform…We already know what a failure Biden and his “devoted wife” are
    to our nation. They have no shame…only count the money coming in from “Hunter” who fills their
    accounts…and nothing is being done! Jimmy Carter looks better and better every day…bet he is
    counting his blessings…the fine Christian he was..

    Really like to know where these terrorists went after apprehension. Did the Biden flunkies just release them back into the US like so many others?

    10 times that many were probably in the “gotaways” category! Just part of the DemocRAT’s plan to destroy America!

Congressman Biggs to Unveil Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

On Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) will unveil his 118th Congress impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Biggs, along with dozens of Republican congressional members, will hold a press conference at The House Triangle in the United States Capitol.

At least 15 members of Congress will provide remarks advocating for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas. Congressman Biggs was the first member of Congress to introduce articles of impeachment against Mayorkas, as early as August 2021.

The escalating border crisis during the Biden administration has led Biggs and other members to conclude Mayorkas’ “dereliction of duty in protecting our nation’s borders constituted high crimes and misdemeanors.”

In late December, The Washington Examiner reported on Biggs’ cited three examples of how he said Mayorkas broke the law.

“First, Secretary Mayorkas has failed to maintain operational control of the border as required under the law,” he said, quoting the Secure Fence Act of 2006’s definition of operational control as “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.”

He added: “Second, he may have lied to Congress when he testified that he was maintaining operational control of the border.

The third illegal action, Biggs said, was how Mayorkas had not detained illegal immigrants and instead released more than 1 million people into the U.S.

“The law is clear illegal aliens shall be detained,” Biggs said.
