As Joe Biden’s purposeful attempt to destroy the US with his wide-open border policies continues, federal data shows that a record of 659 known terrorists have been caught trying to sneak into the country in just the last year alone.
“In fiscal 2023, 659 known or suspected terrorists (KSTs) were apprehended attempting to illegally enter the U.S. – with the majority being apprehended at the northern border, according to CBP data last updated Sept. 15. The fiscal year ended Sept. 30,” Just the News Reported.
The numbers show that 432 known or suspected terrorists (or KSTs) were caught trying to sneak in across the northern border while 227 were caught at the southern border.
These numbers, though, do not count the unknown number who were able to sneak into the U.S. without being caught. These are called the “got aways.”
The govt estimates there are up to 1.7 million “gotaways” and many include KSTs.
But knowing how bad the govt is on numbers, it is probably many times more than that.
Per Just the News:
With people illegally entering the U.S. from over 170 countries, former ICE Chief Tom Homan told The Center Square some of these countries they are coming from are sponsors of terrorism.
“If you don’t think a single one of the 1.7 million [gotaways] is coming from a country that sponsors terrorism, then you’re ignoring the data,” he said. “That’s what makes this a huge national security issue.”
KSTs are primarily apprehended two different ways by two different federal agents. Office of Field Operations (OFO) agents, who work at land ports of entry, are tasked with stopping “inadmissables,” or illegal foreign nationals, KSTs and a range of other people or contraband prior to entering the U.S.
Border Patrol agents work between ports of entry, patrolling the border to apprehend foreign nationals who’ve already illegally entered the U.S.
OFO agents working at northern ports of entry have apprehended more than those at southwest ports of entry in four out of the last seven fiscal years. OFO agents have also historically apprehended more KSTs at ports of entry than Border Patrol agents between ports of entry due to varying factors.
In fiscal 2023, OFO agents apprehended 429 KSTs at northern border ports of entry and 76 KSTs at southwest border land ports of entry, totaling 505 at ports of entry at both borders.
Border Patrol agents apprehended 151 KSTs between ports of entry along the southwest border and three between ports of entry along the northern border, totaling 154.
These numbers likely amount to nothing compared to the number of terrorists Biden has invited into the country.
