According to a senator, Joe Biden’s “open border,” the outcome of his decision to trash President Donald Trump’s southern border security initiatives upon taking office, is the “gravest terrorist threat” to the United States.
Washington Examiner reported, that Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., thousands of illegal aliens from “special interest” nations, individuals with ties to terrorist groups, have been apprehended at that border since Biden assumed office.
Cotton stated that this suggests that terrorists have probably arrived in the United States.
“It only took 19 al-Qaida operatives to kill nearly 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001,” said Cotton, of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Criminal Justice and Counterterrorism. “Many, many times that number of known terrorists have surely crossed our southern border since Joe Biden took office. His open border is the gravest terrorist threat to the U.S. homeland.”
Terrorist fears have grown in recent days, following Hamas militants’ savage, gory, and “depraved” attack on Israel. More than 1,000 individuals have been killed, most of them innocent civilians, including more than a dozen Americans.
According to the study, since fiscal 2023 began last October, U.S. Border Patrol agents on the southern U.S. border have apprehended 151 non-U.S. individuals who, after being processed, have been deported, “were determined to be on the FBI’s terror watch list for being a terrorist or affiliated with someone who was.”
That’s the highest number documented by the Border Patrol ever.
Furthermore, CBP statistics show that between October 2021 and October 2023, over 10,000 illegal immigrants from special concern nations Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, and Syria were apprehended at the border.
According to the Border Patrol, it uses fingerprints and facial scans, among other things, to identify any illegal alien who may be on the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Data Set.
According to another report, there is a distinction between a “special interest alien” and a “known or suspected terrorist.”
The agency explains, “Generally, an SIA is a non-U.S. person who, based on an analysis of travel patterns, potentially poses a national security risk to the United States or its interests. Often such individuals or groups are employing travel patterns known or evaluated to possibly have a nexus to terrorism. … This does not mean that all SIAs are ‘terrorists,’ but rather that the travel and behavior of such individuals indicates a possible nexus to nefarious activity (including terrorism) and, at a minimum, provides indicators that necessitate heightened screening and further investigation.”
Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee produced a report claiming that 1.7 million illegal aliens were detected by Border Patrol entering the nation without permission since Biden took office but were not tracked down and prosecuted.
According to a separate Fox News source, the aliens came from Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Syria, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Mauritania.
And of course, those home countries do not include the hundreds of thousands who arrived but are classified as “got-aways” for having escaped scrutiny.
The Department of Homeland Security’s newest threat assessment, from just weeks ago, said agents are seeing a growing number from the watch list, and warned, “terrorists and criminal actors may exploit the elevated flow and increasingly complex security environment to enter the United States.”
Charge this administration with treason. Simple as that.
Any terrorist attack done by someone who crossed the border illegally during this administration should be LEGALLY prosecuted against Joe Biden and any other “leader” who aided illegal entry into our country.
