TERROR AT THE BORDER: Man on Terror Watchlist Caught and Released into U.S. by Border Patrol; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.12.24

According to an NBC News report, Afghan migrant Mohammad Kharwin, 48, was caught and released into the U.S. and was free for a year before he was taken back into custody.

Kharwin is on the terror watchlist.

From NBC News:

Mohammad Kharwin, 48, was freed on bond as he awaited an immigration hearing in Texas, scheduled for 2025, U.S. officials said. There were no restrictions on his movements inside the U.S.

(After this article was published, a Department of Homeland Security spokesperson said Kharwin was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents late Thursday evening. A source familiar with the matter said that, “based on the information currently available, there is no reason to believe this individual entered the country as part of a terrorist mission.”)

Kharwin was initially apprehended on March 10, 2023, near San Ysidro, California, after having crossed the Mexico-U.S. border illegally.

Border agents suspected he was on the U.S. terrorist watchlist when he was apprehended because one piece of information matched a person on the list. But the agents lacked corroborating information, which officials declined to describe, that would confirm Kharwin was the person they suspected, U.S. officials said.

According to the FBI watchlist, Kharwin is a member of Hezb-e-Islami, or HIG, a political and paramilitary organization that the U.S. has designated a terrorist organization.
