Two Yemeni Men on the FBI Terror Watch List are Apprehended Crossing U.S. Southern Border

Two Yemeni men apprehended in recent weeks while crossing the U.S. southern border have been found to be suspected terrorists on an FBI watch list.

U.S. border patrol agents found one individual about three miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry on Jan. 29. He was sent to the El Centro Processing Center where his history as a possible Yemeni terrorist was discovered. He is on the FBI terror watch list as well as the No Fly List.

The other individual was found on March 30, over two months later in a similar area. They found this person approximately two miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry, and he was sent to the same processing center where they researched his criminal history. He is also on the FBI terror watch list and the No Fly List.

“Part of the Border Patrol’s mission states we will protect the country from terrorists,” said Chief Patrol Agent Gregory K. Bovino. “Today, like every other day, our agents did that. These apprehensions at our border illustrates the importance of our mission and how we can never stop being vigilant in our everyday mission to protect this great country.”

While these men were apprehended after the Biden regime seized power, the relaxed policies of the new administration are causing a free-for-all at the border. Economic migrants are flooding into the U.S. from all parts of the world, and potential Middle Eastern terrorists are getting in on the invasion.

Big League Politics has reported on how migrants are flooding the border because they know Biden will go easy on them:

An exclusive report claims that the Biden administration is releasing illegal aliens into the country without setting dates to appear in immigration court, according to a high-ranking Border Patrol official.

Breitbart published the report Sunday, and the official spoke to them anonymously because he is not authorized to speak about such matters publicly.

This is insane, it is another pull factor that will overwhelm us,” he said. “We are creating another entirely different class of aliens we will have to deal with years from now. We will never find most of these aliens once they are released.”

This catch-and-release plan pertains to illegal aliens claiming asylum. On Saturday Fox News reported on the discussion of the plan, saying that it would release migrants without issuing a Notice to Appear (NTA). Their source, potentially the same one who spoke to Breitbart on Sunday, told Fox News that the plan is directly connected to the nearly unmanageable influx of people crossing the US-Mexico border.

“[The situation] has become so dire that [Border Patrol] has no choice but to release people nearly immediately after apprehension because there is no space to hold people even to do necessary NTA paperwork,” he said.

Breitbart reports that the process, implemented Sunday morning, relies on the migrants telling officials what city they will be traveling to. Border Patrol officials will then ask them to “report to the nearest immigration court office when they arrive,” relying on a sort of honors’ system rather than giving them a formal NTA.

But the anonymous Border Patrol source states that even if these migrants do appear in court, it will be difficult to process them given the backlog of individuals and minimal staffing. And because they won’t have NTAs, the court cannot order the removal of migrants in absentia for failing to appear on their specified court date.”

The Biden regime is looking the other way because they want to import millions of new Democrat voters, but their push for power may have damaging consequences for national security.
