(RepublicanWire.org) – U.S. Border Patrol allowed a suspected terrorist, who was released after crossing the southern border, to remain in the country for nearly two weeks before authorizing his arrest.

The individual in question was Isnardo Garcia-Amado, 35-year-old citizen of Colombia, who crossed into the U.S. on April 18th near Yuma, Arizona, Fox News reported. After crossing the border, per normal protocol, he was registered with U.S. Border Patrol, given a GPS tracking band, and released into the country with a date for a hearing before an immigration judge.

Three days later, the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center flagged Garcia-Amado’s name after reviewing entry logs by U.S. Border Patrol. They determined that he was a match to an entry on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB), the United States’ central database for listed terrorists. As of 2017, the TSDB contains the names of over 1.1 million persons, whose terrorist ties have not been updated. Under 5,000 U.S. citizens are also on the list.

Though the FBI flagged Garcia-Amado’s name on that date, April 21st, ICE did not receive authorization to arrest him until May 4th, a full 13 days after he had entered the U.S. He was found less than 48 hours later, in Pinellas Country, Fla., on May 6th. He is presently in ICE custody, awaiting deportation to Colombia.

In response to questions about the competence of U.S. Border Patrol for letting a terrorist into the country, a Department of Homeland Security spokesman told Fox News that “DHS is focused on those who pose a threat to our national security, public safety, and border security.”
