(RepublicanWire.org) – Biden’s border mess has brought on more than just a flood of illegal immigrants, there were also plenty of known or suspected terrorists apprehended on the southern border last year.
These are just the one’s that were caught. Last year there were 400,000 illegal crossers who were not apprehended.
In an interview with Bret Baier, former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott says that since the beginning of the year, during the Biden administration, there have been AT LEAST 400,000 illegal border crossings categorized as “gotaways”. Meaning these individuals were seen crossing the border but were not caught or documented.
It’s impossible to know, but the likelihood of other terrorists sneaking in with this other group of nearly half a million is extremely high.
The Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) contains information about the identities of those who are known or “reasonably suspected” of being involved in terrorist activities. Republicans lawmakers have repeatedly called for the number of those encountered at the border to be made public by the administration.
“Reporting indicates that multiple individuals with terrorist ties have been recently apprehended after illegally crossing the border, and that such encounters may be increasing,” Reps. James Comer and John Katko, who serve as ranking members on the Oversight and Homeland Security committees respectively, wrote to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas last month.
“The American people deserve to know whether President Biden’s weak border policies are allowing terrorists to enter our homeland,” they said.
There are definite terrorists coming into the United States, encouraged by a weak border, and the Biden Administration refuses to answer questions about it.
Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott has repeatedly sounded the alarm over the number of TSDBs coming across the border, telling fellow agents last year that it was “at a level we have never seen before.”
“We have terrorist threats we can’t get into in this type of a forum but they are real,” he told Fox News’ Bret Baier in October.
It’s worse than ever before according to the former border chief. And these are last year’s numbers. The numbers this year are even worse.
Fox News reported earlier this month that over 62,000 illegal immigrants evaded Border Patrol agents in March, averaging about 2,000 a day.
The numbers come as the Biden administration is yet again facing sky-high border numbers that are overwhelming agents and resources. According to a filing by CBP last week, agents encountered more than 212,000 migrants at the border in March, higher than any month last year.
