President Joe Biden hasn’t been to the border, his vice president who was put in “charge” of the border crisis never speaks publicly, his Secretary of Homeland Security has castrated our border agents, and his press secretary said immigrants are not just “walking across” the border into our country.

With such delusion running our country, it’s no wonder that over 81 individuals on the terrorist watchlist have been stopped at the border since President Joe Biden took office. The number does not include “gotaways” which refer to individuals that disappeared into the country undetected and without a trace.

Details were first tweeted by Texas Governor Greg Abbott who posted an “Intelligence and Counterterrorism Division Texas Fusion Center Briefing” which included “CBP Data on FY22 Terrorist Watchlist Suspect Encounters on the Southwest Border.”

Abbott wrote:

80+ terrorists on the Terrorist Watchlist have been encountered along our southern border since Pres. Biden took office.

His refusal to secure the border is a direct threat to our national security.

Texas is stepping up to protect Americans from these dangerous criminals.

The briefing included information on “U.S. Border Patrol TSDS Encounters Between Ports of Entry of Non-U.S. Citizens.”

Fiscal Year of 2017 saw 2 encounters, 6 in 2018, 0 in 2019, 3 in 2020, 15 in 2021 and a whopping 66 in 2022 thus far.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Otay Mesa Commercial Facility discovered $18 million dollars’ worth of methamphetamine hidden within a shipment of squash.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) revealed in a press release on Monday, at approximately 6:47 a.m.,that CBP officers encountered a 44-year-old male driving a commercial tractor-trailer with a shipment manifested for squash. The driver, a valid border crossing card holder, was referred for further examination by CBP officers along with the tractor-trailer and shipment.

Non-intrusive scanning technology was utilized to conduct a full scan of the tractor trailer which showed irregularities and CBP officers requested a CBP human and narcotics detection canine. The canine team responded and alerted officers to the presence of narcotics.

A total of 1,419 packages concealed within the shipment of squash was discovered and extracted. The narcotics were tested and identified as methamphetamine with a total weight of 11,469 pounds with an estimated street value of $18,350,400.

“Our officers’ commitment to duty, excellence, and the safety of our nation is truly commendable. These results serve as an outstanding display of effectiveness in thwarting the illegal importation of narcotics,” stated Rosa E. Hernandez, Otay Mesa Area Port Director. “Their exceptional efforts truly embody the highest standards of service.”

The seizures are part of Operation Apollo, a holistic counter-fentanyl effort that began on October 26, 2023 in southern California, and expanded to Arizona on April 10, 2024, the CBP release reveals. Operation Apollo focuses on intelligence collection and partnerships, and utilizes local CBP field assets augmented by federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners to boost resources, increase collaboration, and target the smuggling of fentanyl into the United States.

The CDC states that more than 150 people die every day from drug overdoses related to synthetic opioids derived from fentanyl.
