TERRORIST TAKEDOWN: 23 People in Terrorist Database Stopped at Southern Border in 2021

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.18.22

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has revealed the capture of 23 people at the southern border in 2021 whose names were on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).

“Four were in the Rio Grande Valley Sector, 4 in Del Rio Sector, 3 in El Paso Sector, 2 in Tucson Sector, 2 in Yuma Sector, 4 in El Centro Sector and 4 in San Diego Sector. The information was provided to Fox News in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request submitted in December,” Fox News reports.

“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,” the report continues.

“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.

Border Patrol agents encountered nearly 2 million migrants attempting to cross the border last year —this year, they estimate that number could be as high as 2.3 million.
