Border Patrol agents in the El Centro Sector of the U.S.-Mexico border arrested two Yemeni nationals with terrorism ties in two separate incidents within the last two months, according to a Monday press release.
On January 29, agents made the first arrest around three miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry. Agents then transported the illegal alien, 33, to the El Centro Processing Center for immigration and conducted a criminal history screening, where he was found to be on both the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List and the No-Fly list.
Agents also found a cell phone sim card under the insole of his shoe. The man was later transported to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
On March 30, agents encountered another Yemeni national two miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry and transported him to the El Centro Processing Center for immigration and criminal history screening.
The illegal alien, 26, was found to be on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List and on the No-Fly list. He is now in federal custody and his removal is pending.
“Part of the Border Patrol’s mission states we will protect the country from terrorists,” said Chief Patrol Agent Gregory K. Bovino. “Today, like every other day, our agents did that. These apprehensions at our border illustrates the importance of our mission and how we can never stop being vigilant in our everyday mission to protect this great country.”
Yemen is considered a country of “special interest” where individuals from those countries could potentially be national security risks. In 2018, the Department of Homeland Security encountered more than 3,000 “special interest aliens” at the Southern border.
