A 29-year-old man of Senegalese or Mauritanian origin was arrested on October 17 by the Enforcement and Removal Operations’ (ERO) New York City branch. He crossed the border near Lukeville, Arizona on October 3rd and was encountered by Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) before b being “released on his own recognizance.”

The man is wanted in Senegal for “terroristic actives.” The Center Square reports the man was told to go to ERO in New York. According to a news release from United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the man was arrested and will continue to remain behind bars until next steps are determined.

The release noted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) alerted the agency about his ties to terrorism in West Africa.

“Noncitizens who are engaged in or suspected of supporting terrorism are a direct threat to our country’s national security and will be expeditiously removed from the United States,” ERO New York City Field Office Director Kenneth Genalo said in a statement on Oct. 19.

“ERO New York City will use every tool at our disposal to keep American citizens and residents safe from those who erroneously believe they can exploit our immigration laws to escape justice in other countries. We remain committed to working with our law enforcement partners to ensure individuals who commit unspeakable acts of violence are held accountable,” Genalo continued.

The United States has been encountering hundreds of individuals who are on the terror watchlist. As of September, 160 migrants on the FBI’s list had been encountered by border authorities in fiscal year 2023, NBC News reported. The Center Square reported in October that some experts are concerned about Hamas-connected terrorists making their way into the nation’s interior by coming through the southern border.

The Foreign Desk reports that 736 known or suspected terrorists (KST’s) hav been apprehended at the U.S border in fiscal 2023 alone; a whopping 66% of them were caught entering the northern border.

The man who murdered 22 year-old Georgia nursing student Laken Riley has been confirmed as suspect Jose Ibarra, an illegal Venezuelan immigrant who was released prior to the murder under Biden administration policies.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed Sunday that the Venezuelan man was Jose Ibarra. 26 year-old Ibarra entered the U.S. illegally, was arrested by Customs and Border Protection agents on Sept. 8, 2022, after he unlawfully entered the U.S. near El Paso, Texas, but was “paroled and released for further processing,” ICE said.

Ibarra was arrested again a year later, on Sept. 14, 2023, by NYPD officers and charged with acting in a manner to injure a child under 17 and a motor vehicle license violation, ICE added, reports Just The News.

Riley was murdered near the University of Georgia campus in Athens on Friday was directly impacted by the “liberalization of immigration policies by Democrats”. Just The News adds “Federal immigration officials said the Venezuelan national was released by New York authorities before a detainer could be issued. As a so-called sanctuary city, New York generally prevents police from complying with ICE detainers.”

“The official timeline of Ibarra’s immigration record only renewed ire among Republicans demanding that President Joe Biden tighten border security and that prosecutors deliver  swift justice to Riley’s killer” writes Just The News.
