Record Number of Suspected Terrorists Crossed the U.S.-Mexico Border

By Todd Bensman on October 28, 2022

Just a few years ago, major U.S. media outlets called President Donald Trump a liar when he proclaimed that Islamic terrorist suspects were illegally crossing the southern border among far more numerous Spanish-speaking immigrants. "Fact-check" columnists swore such terrorist crossings never happened.

But since April 2022, when U.S. Customs and Border Protection began publishing the monthly number of border crossers who were on the FBI's terrorism watch list, it has become impossible to ignore the record-breaking numbers of suspected terrorist crossings.

Final fiscal year 2022 numbers show Border Patrol apprehended a whopping 98 watch-listed terrorists at the southern border, six times the record 15 caught there in 2021 (three were caught in 2020 and none in 2019). That's also five times the number it took to carry out the 9/11 attacks that took America to war in overseas theaters for 20 years. . . .
