Fact-checkers were wrong: Once mocked, GOP gets last word on terrorism suspects at border:
When top Republicans last year warned that Border Patrol agents were catching terrorist suspects jumping the southern border, fact-checkers were swift to object.
No evidence, sniffed CNN’s “Facts First.” Not enough data, scolded PolitiFact. Lies, said Rep. Ruben Gallego, a Democrat who cited his position as chairman of an intelligence subcommittee as his credentials for undermining the GOP claims.
A year later, the facts are on the Republican side — but the fact-checkers still aren’t.
Customs and Border Protection reported that over the 12 months of fiscal year 2022, Border Patrol agents nabbed 98 people whose names were flagged in the terrorist screening dataset, commonly referred to as the terrorism watchlist. Twenty were caught in September alone, shattering the previous high shown in CBP’s records.
That came on top of 15 more nabbed at the southern border in 2021.
By contrast, just 11 were caught at the southern border in the years from 2017 to 2020, which roughly overlapped the Trump years.
Reps. John Katko, the top Republican on the Homeland Security Committee, and Kevin McCarthy, the House Republican leader, raised the issue of terrorism suspects during a visit to Texas in February 2021, just as the border was descending into chaos under the new Biden administration.
They said the agents had revealed the arrests to them.
The fact-checkers swooped in. --->READ MORE HERE
Biden’s Open Door to Jihad Terrorists
More known terrorists than ever are being caught at the border. How many aren’t caught?
What was once known as the Southern border of the United States is essentially nonexistent in this time of Old Joe Biden’s misrule, and so it was no surprise Saturday when it came to light that so far in 2022, the Border Patrol has caught at least 98 people at the border who are on terror watchlists. Terrorists can see what’s happening at the border as much as anyone else can; why shouldn’t they take advantage of the mess Old Joe has made? And those 98, of course, were just the ones who got caught.
Fox News reported Saturday that “the number of migrant encounters at the U.S. southern border climbed to a record more than 227,000 during the month of September and more than 2.3 million for fiscal year 2022, according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.” That data also shows that “there were 20 known or suspected terrorists arrested at the southern border in September, bringing the total terror watchlist arrests at the border for the fiscal year 2022 to 98. The number of terror watchlist arrests at the border for the last five years combined was 26.”
What has Old Joe and his minions said about this? Nothing, of course, because they haven’t been challenged by the sycophantic Leftist propagandists we call “journalists.” And the administration has every reason to stonewall any inquiry, as nothing demonstrates the catastrophe that is Biden’s handling of the border crisis more vividly than the entry of known terrorists into the United States.
The terror risk involved in the open border has long been known. U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported as far back as Feb. 3, 2021 that “Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents arrested a group of 11 Iranian citizens who illegally crossed the border into the United States….Yuma Sector agents apprehended eight Iranian nationals in FY2020, compared to just 14 from all other border patrol sectors combined. So far in FY2021, Yuma Sector agents have apprehend [sic] 14 nationals from Iran.”
Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.) asserted in March 2021 that “individuals that they have on the watchlist for terrorism are now starting to exploit the southern border. We need to wake up.” --->READ MORE HERE
