Dozens of suspected terrorists have been stopped at border since Biden took office:
Dozens of people on terrorist watch lists have been caught trying to cross the border illegally since President Joe Biden took office in January 2021, according to FOX News.
Texas Congressman Chip Roy slammed Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in a tweet on Tuesday, blaming them for the 42 individuals with possible terrorist ties who attempted to sneak into the country.
“42 people on the TERROR WATCHLIST have been arrested at our border since Biden was sworn in,” the Austin Republican said on Twitter.
Roy then blasted Biden and Mayorkas for lax security at the Southern border.
“More importantly: how many MORE dangerous suspects were in the over 600K known [migrants] who evaded law enforcement because Biden and Mayorkas REFUSE to secure our border,” he said.
Those placed on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) are “reasonably suspected” of being involved in terrorist activities.
According to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data obtained by Fox News, a total of 23 people individuals on terror watchlists were detained by Border Patrol agents between Jan. 20 and Dec. 27, 2021. --->READ MORE HERE

42 arrested at border under Biden on terror watch list: DHS data:
Forty-two people on the U.S. government’s terror watch list have been arrested attempting to enter the United States illegally since President Joe Biden took office, according to federal data obtained by the Washington Examiner.
The 42 arrests happened across the country, not just on the southern border, and include people who tried to enter the U.S. by illegally crossing the border, as opposed to coming through a port of entry.
“Since January 20, 2021, the U.S. Border Patrol and the Office of Field Operations has arrested 42 subjects who were on the terror watchlist and attempted to enter the United States illegally,” the DHS wrote in response to a recent congressional inquiry. “These numbers are inclusive of anyone who may be on the No-Fly List.”
Twenty-three of the 42 arrests were made between Jan. 20, 2021, and Dec. 27, 2021, specifically between ports of entry at the southern border, according to a report from Fox News that only examined Border Patrol arrests. The other 19 arrests happened when people being inspected at the border crossings were flagged.
The 42 arrests do not include those who are on the terror watch list but evaded law enforcement at the border and made it into the country without being detected. Large numbers of migrants successfully elude authorities — the Border Patrol is aware of instances in March in which 62,000 noncitizens were observed illegally entering the country, but agents were unable to apprehend them.
Last summer, recently retired Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott told agents in his farewell address that the agency was encountering people on the terror watch list “at a level we have never seen before.” --->READ MORE HERE
