In yet another display of their incompetence, the Biden administration has allowed 80 potential terrorists to enter the United States through the southern border in just six months. This is an unprecedented number and is set to surpass the previous year’s record. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released the data, which comes following the surge of illegal migration at the southern border, with over a million illegal migrant encounters between October and March alone.

Under the Biden administration, “operational control” of the southern border has failed drastically, according to Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz, who testified to Congress in March. It’s not surprising to see such a dangerous spike in people on the terror watchlist now that we have such a weak and open border.
Former Border Patrol Chief, Rodney Scott, noted in October that because we have an open border, we don’t have the ability to control what enters our country. The last three years have shown an increase in numbers with no sign of slowing down, with zero individuals apprehended in 2019, three in 2020, and 15 in 2021. The current administration has shown a clear lack of interest in stopping the flow of illegal and dangerous individuals entering into the country.
It’s important to keep in mind that people on the terror watchlist are those who have been deemed serious enough for extra scrutiny by our government. Yet, the Biden administration is willing to look the other way and allow them to enter our country with ease. It’s clear that the security of our nation is not a priority for the Biden administration. It’s time to take action to protect our country and ensure that dangerous individuals can’t cross our borders without being caught.
