Four On FBI’s Terror Watchlist Busted at U.S.-Mexico Border Since October with More Coming

They started coming before Joe Biden took office, but the flow of people on the FBI’s terrorist watch list to the United States picked up steam after he began loosening his predecessor’s tough immigration enforcement policies, and now Republicans say many more are on the way.



Department of Homeland Security officials within the Biden administration have said that four people on the terror watchlist have been caught trying to get into the U.S. via the border since October.

The New York Post reported:

The tens of thousands of people rushing the US-Mexico border in recent weeks include not just Central American migrants, but suspected terrorists, Republican lawmakers said Monday as they toured the crossing amid the escalating crisis.

“Individuals that they have on the watchlist for terrorism are now starting to exploit the southern border,” said Rep. John Katko (R-NY). “We need to wake up.”

Katko made the disturbing revelation as he and other members of a Republican contingent led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California addressed reporters in El Paso, Texas.

It’s not as though the Biden administration wasn’t warned this was going to happen.

In fact, Department of Homeland Security careerists warned Biden’s transition team that if the incoming president made good on his campaign promises to reverse President Trump’s policies, there would be “catastrophic consequences,” according to one of the former president’s top advisers, Stephen Miller.

“Biden’s transition team was warned by career DHS officials that terminating our proven border security measures would lead to catastrophic consequences… they ignored those warnings and voluntarily unleashed chaos,” Miller wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

 

“By 2020—defeating a flood of meritless years-long litigation—we had in place the most effective, rock-solid, profound border security measures ever realized. Biden inherited an unbeatable system. He then immediately shredded it & created this rapidly-escalating emergency,” Miller added.

Miller made his comments in response to a CNN story quoting Biden saying to migrants that they shouldn’t come to the U.S.

“Maybe nobody on his staff informed him, but Biden’s DHS implemented nationwide Catch-and-Release,” Miller wrote. “Illegal migrants from all over the world, in ever-growing numbers, will descend on the border until the Trump policy of Detain-and-Remove is restored.”

For weeks as more and more migrants flooded the border and overwhelmed Border Patrol and Customs and Border Protection officials, the White House regularly denied that it was dealing with a migrant “crisis” on the border.

But the crush has become too big to ignore and now, of course, GOP lawmakers have seen the mess themselves.

As such, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is finally admitting he’s got a big problem to deal with, especially when it comes to dealing with terrorists crossing the border — because why would they risk getting busted by immigration officials at an airport?

The Washington Times reports:

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas acknowledged Wednesday that known or suspected terrorists are crossing through the southern border, though he said it’s been going on for years.

He said they have tried to cross “the land border” as well as try to arrive by air.

“That is not a new phenomenon,” he said.

No, it isn’t — which makes all of the Democrats and some RINOs who pushed back against Trump’s claims terrorists were using the southern border to infiltrate America look stupid and partisan.
