Approximately 75,000 illegal immigrants were flagged by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for potentially having ties to terrorism or being a threat to national security.
The data, which was compiled by The Daily Caller, paints a disturbing picture of what’s happening at the southern border under Joe Biden. These illegals were flagged in just 10 months leading up to August 2023.
“Often such individuals or groups are employing travel patterns known or evaluated to possibly have a nexus to terrorism,” the Department of Homeland Security said.
“DHS analysis includes an examination of travel patterns, points of origin, and/or travel segments that are tied to current assessments of national and international threat environments.”
During a White House press conference, Biden Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “The president has done more to secure the border and to deal with the issue of immigration than anybody else. He really has.”
Despite this “spin” on the issue, the truth is that Democrats deserve blame for the border crisis.
In 2022 alone, the US encountered the highest number ever recorded of illegal immigrants at the US southern border. This represents a 200% increase from former President Donald Trump’s last year in office in 2020.

Under Trump, Americans saw the lowest rate of illegal immigration in over 40 years.
Under Biden, we have seen the highest rate of illegal immigration over 60 years.
General Michael Flynn, who has personally witnessed the problem, describes the situation under Biden as a “mass invasion” that is “out of control.”
Biden notoriously ended Trump’s “remain in Mexico” policy, which forced foreign nationals seeking to enter the U.S. through the southern border — illegally or without proper documentation — to be returned to Mexico.
These individuals needed to wait in Mexico while their legal cases are adjudicated. This border security program under Trump and kept migrants in Mexico as they awaited their hearings.
Biden, on the other hand, opened the floodgates and created a disaster by removing this policy. This signaled that everyone can come through the border even if it’s illegally and without proper documentation.
Biden and the Democrats have falsely claimed President Trump was “racist” and “xenophobic” for his “remain in Mexico” policy.
Under Trump, an estimated 68,000 migrants were returned to Mexico under the policy, according to the Department of Homeland Security. These individuals will need to wait in Mexico while their legal cases are adjudicated.
Biden, on the other hand, allows migrant asylum seekers into the U.S. prior to court hearings, which many Republicans have opposed. The Democrat’s strategy of allowing migrants into the U.S. gives them the opportunity to disappear before their court hearings.
As a result, the White House confirmed that some illegal immigrants have received free cell phones so that they can be contacted and “checked on” in hopes that they don’t disappear within the U.S. before their court hearing.
Although Biden claims that has has “done more to secure the border than anybody else,” the direct opposite is true. Biden has made the problem worse than anyone else in US history.
