Immigrants on the terror watchlist are flocking to the southern border.
According to data fromU.S. Customs and Border Protection, terror watchlist arrests at the southern have soared under President Biden as record-breaking numbers of migrants overwhelm authorities.
From The Daily Wire:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data jumped from just three arrests of individuals from the list at the border in 2020 to nearly 100 in 2022.
In 2023, a total of 38 individuals on the terror watch list have been arrested already at the southern border, pacing ahead of last’s year high of 98.
In 2021, Biden’s first year in office, 15 arrests of individuals from the terror watch list occurred at the southern border. While the number was five times higher than the last year under the Trump administration, the statistics have spiked since 2022.
During the four years under then-President Donald Trump, only 11 individuals from the terror watch list were arrested.

The border has descended into chaos under Biden and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Now, House GOP members are taking action against Mayrokas.
“Since day one, Secretary Mayorkas’ policies have undermined law enforcement activities at our southern border,” Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) said in a statement to Fox News. “From perjuring himself before Congress about maintaining operational control of the border to the infamous ‘whip-gate’ slander against our border patrol agents, Secretary Mayorkas has proven time and time again that he is unfit to lead the Department of Homeland Security.”
“His willful actions have eroded our immigration system, undermined border patrol morale, and jeopardized American national security. He has violated the law and it is time for him to go,” Fallon added.
