U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published the most recent data this past weekend revealing the horrifying amount of literal terrorists that have been apprehended at our borders in fiscal 2023 alone. In the last two weeks of September, an additional 77 known or suspected terrorists (KSTs) were caught, bringing the total number apprehended in fiscal 2023, which ended September 30, an astounding 736.

Many have been overwhelmed by the crisis at the southern border with Mexico, but the KST statistics are shocking: 66% of the 736 KSTs were apprehended at the northern border. The Center Square reports “the total of 736 is the greatest number of KSTs apprehended in recorded U.S. history.”

These numbers don’t include gotaways, which are believed to also include KSTs. “Gotaways” is the official U.S. Customs and Border Patrol term that refers to those who illegally enter the U.S. between ports of entry, don’t return to Mexico or Canada, and are not apprehended. They total at least nearly 1.7 million since January 2021. However, the number is believed to be much higher because not all gotaways are known and or reported.

“If you don’t think a single one of the 1.7 million [gotaways] is coming from a country that sponsors terrorism, then you’re ignoring the data,” said former ICE Chief Tom Homan, noting that those illegally entering the U.S. are coming from over 170 countries. “That’s what makes this a huge national security issue.”

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.
