Biden Admin Quietly Publishes Data Showing 100 Terrorists Caught Crossing Southern Border

Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has quietly published data showing that almost 100 terror suspects have been caught trying to illegally cross the U.S. Southern Border.

The newly published federal data from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals that 98 individuals listed on the FBI terror watchlist have been apprehended at the Southern border in the last year alone.

The figure is a record high and a huge uptick over previous years.

The CBP data, released without fanfare on Friday night, reveals that the number of suspected terrorists or individuals closely affiliated with terrorist organizations has soared in recent months.

The figure has jumped from just 27 in early April.

In September alone, 20 terror suspects were arrested on the border, up from 12 in August.

The data was highlighted by Fox News reporter Bill Melugin in a report this week, as he noted that the figure is almost four times the previous five years combined:

Previous data from 2019 indicated that zero terror suspects had been encountered at the border.

As Melugin previously highlighted, CBP sources say there have been almost 600,000 “gotaways” this year alone, and close to a million since the beginning of last year.

The numbers beg the question of how many of them were on the terror watchlist and are now roaming around the country freely.

The number of migrants encountered at the border now stands at almost 2.4 million for the year, with over 227,000 in September alone.

There were also a record number of deaths.

Responding to the latest data release, Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), the top Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said in a statement Monday “Our adversaries know they can enter our country through our failed border.”

Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), the top Republican on the Senate homeland security appropriations subcommittee, added that the Border Patrol is “overrun” and the “consequences of these lax enforcement actions should concern every single American.”

In addition, the new data shows that Feds seized close to 15 thousand pounds of fentanyl from smugglers attempting to get it across the border, seven times as much compared to five years ago.

Meanwhile, Biden officials continue to claim the border is secure.
