Sara Carter: There’s a ‘big concern’ that some of the immigrants crossing the border are terrorists

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) removed a press release from their website outlining the arrest of two Yemeni illegal immigrants that attempted to cross the border who were on the FBI’s terror watch list. CBP said the press release was not properly reviewed and contained certain policy information related to national security that required them to take it down.

Federal officials announced the arrests of the two Yemeni men near the Calexico Port of Entry in California on Monday. Both men were on the government’s “no-fly” list.

Sara Carter joined “Hannity” Tuesday to discuss the real reason why CBP deleted the press release.

Sources told Carter that the Biden administration and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wanted the press release removed because they didn’t want the public to be alarmed of threats of terrorism at the border.

“The sources that I spoke to in DHS as well as intelligence said that people in the Biden administration and particularly officials in the Department of Homeland Security wanted that press release down because they didn’t want the public to be alarmed at the very real threat that the border poses,” she said.

Carter said Customs and Border Protection told her that 1,000 illegal immigrants enter the border everyday without encountering border patrol officers and there’s a “big concern” that some of these immigrants entering the U.S. could be terrorists.

“Those are got-aways, those are people that they cannot identify, people that they have not traced, people that disappear into our country without any identity whatsoever,” Carter explained. “There’s a big concern among intelligence officials that some of those people could be terrorists.”

In response to the two Yemeni men from the FBI watch list that were apprehended at the border, White House Press Secretary Jennifer Psaki dismissed the risk of terrorism and said such incidents are “very uncommon.”

“First, let me convey that these types of incidents are very uncommon,” Psaki said at a Tuesday press conference. “Encounters of known and suspected terrorists are very uncommon. They do underscore the importance of the critical work that is done on a daily basis to vet those at the border.”

“DHS works, not just at the border … but also with international partners to share intelligence and other information including to prevent individuals on certain watchlists from entering the United States,” she said.

“So while this is rare. This is a reflection of them doing their jobs,” Psaki said.

Host Sean Hannity slammed Psaki for her Tuesday statement.

“If we didn’t have open borders there would be no terrorists crossing the border,” Hannity said.

“Jen, one terrorist is all that it takes.”

Migrants sick of waiting, surge border after judge temporarily blocks Biden from revoking Title 42

Border Patrol

Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted recently, on May 17, that agents under his command apprehended 2,849 migrants last weekend. However, as migrants no longer want to wait for Title 42 to end, they have surged the border.

In a Breitbart exclusive, the media outlet reported the “number will be eclipsed as it appears the total could approach 4,000 this weekend.” Unfortunately, “the migrants did not appear to know or understand that the Title 42 will not end on Monday due to a federal court order. They expressed they were simply tired of waiting” the report adds.

Between April 1st and May 15 of this year, approximately 513,000 migrants illegally crossed the southern border.

On Friday, Louisiana Judge Robert Summerhays issued a preliminary injunction, and ordered to temporarily block the Biden Administration from revoking Title 42.

Breitbart notes “whether Title 42 ends or not, migrants say they are tired of waiting and surged across the Rio Grande into the Eagle Pass, Texas, area of operations. As many as 3,600 crossed so far this weekend — eclipsing last weekend’s total of just over 2,800 migrant apprehensions in the Del Rio Sector — according to a source operating within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”

In just a couple of hours on Sunday evening, agents apprehended more than 700 migrants. Agents identified majority of the migrants as Honduran nationals, and some as Colombian.

One source told Breitbart resources were not available to transport migrants from the border to the processing station. It also appears the NGOs who regularly shelter the migrants are overloaded as migrants are reportedly being dropped off at an Eagle Pass Stripes convenience store.

“The crossings are not without danger. On Saturday, seven migrants were swept off their feet in the middle of the night forcing Border Patrol agents to jump into action to save their lives” Breitbart Texas reported. Those seven were lucky, whereas the bodies of three migrants were recovered at the Del Rio Sector.
