U.S.-Mexico Border Becomes Global Terrorism Hotspot Under Biden

AMAC Exclusive – By Aaron Flanigan

For nearly three years, the American people have watched in horror as the crisis on the southern border has injected deadly drugs, violent crime, and human trafficking into American communities. But even as the nation continues to reel from these consequences, one crucial element of the border catastrophe has gone largely overlooked – the rising threat from radical Islamic extremism.

Thanks to the Biden administration’s eradication of nearly every border security measure enacted by President Donald Trump, the southern border is now becoming the next hotspot for terrorism and violence—particularly as war rages in the Middle East and Hezbollah and Hamas seek to infiltrate the United States.

According to a September report released by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) analyzing the “Homeland Threat Assessment” for fiscal year 2024, “[t]errorists and criminal actors may exploit the elevated flow and increasingly complex security environment to enter the United States.”

The report further notes that “individuals with potential terrorism connections continue to attempt to enter the Homeland” as the border crisis rages onward—a shocking admission that has elicited little public acknowledgment from Democrats, White House officials, or the mainstream media.

As of July, months before the end of the 2023 fiscal year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) had already encountered roughly 160 individuals on the Terrorism Watchlist—an approximately 60 percent increase in encounters from fiscal year 2022.

Even more terrifying, those numbers only represent the people apprehended by CBP. There is no telling how many more were among the estimated 1.7 million “gotaways” who have escaped completely undetected into the interior of the country.

Notably, the DHS report was released several weeks prior to Hamas’s attacks on Israel, which have only escalated concerns of potential terrorist activity within America’s borders. But even in the September report, DHS officials said they “expect continued high numbers of migrant encounters over the next year” and proceeded to mention Lebanese terror organization Hezbollah by name, noting the group has “called for revenge against the United States for [Qasem] Soleimani’s death.”

The report also acknowledged Iran’s “intent to plot attacks against current and former U.S. government officials” by relying on “individuals with pre-existing access to the United States for surveillance and lethal plotting.”

As the conflict in the Middle East continues to worsen, the risk of terrorist threats is only likely to intensify. Meanwhile, the Biden DHS is withholding key information regarding the identities of the nearly 270 terror suspects who have been apprehended at the border since Biden took office—prompting growing public concern, including a lawsuit against CBP from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

The data released by CBP, a CIS press release states, “offers very few elucidating details that would sate rising public interest and concern, such as whether some of those apprehended might be affiliated with Hamas or Hezbollah.” CBP data also fails to disclose “how the people of other origin countries might feel about any given U.S. foreign policy or intervention at any given time, as a potential indicator of danger posed by those crossing the border from those regions.”

The disaster unfolding at the border is particularly shameful given that Biden inherited the most secure border on record from former President Donald Trump.

Immediately upon entering office, Biden reversed every policy that secured the border during the Trump years—including border wall construction, deportations, and “Remain in Mexico” (which ended the practice of “catch and release” and forced illegal aliens to wait for their court hearings in their country of origin). Biden also mandated a functional shutdown of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)—going so far as to implement what the administration calls “protected areas” in which ICE is not permitted to enter.

Throughout his first 100 days in office, Biden issued no less than 94 executive orders overturning the policies of the Trump administration and advancing an unashamedly open borders agenda.

The results of these actions speak for themselves: since Biden took office, nearly seven million illegal aliens have been encountered by U.S. border officials—and that figure only accounts for those who were caught. Now, Biden’s immigration policies could serve as the impetus for a terrorist incident perhaps unlike anything our nation has seen since the September 11 attacks.

The solution to the border crisis and our national security predicament—as with every other crisis inflicted by the Biden administration—should be clear. A simple return to President Trump’s “America First” immigration and border policies would quickly bring the border calamity to an end while greatly reducing any national security risks.

Yet if the last three years are any indication, Americans can likely expect the opposite.

Nothing really new in this article. It’s all old news at this point. As for creating a magnet for potential terrorists to enter the United States, well that has been the fact since Biden stumbled into the White House on Day One and began the systematic flooding of the United States by what is now 8 million completely unvetted individuals. Now three years later, with still at least another year to go, there is no way to accurately estimate how many hundreds or thousands of terrorists, along with criminals and other undesirables, simply strolled into this country to do us harm. All the terrorists already here are simply waiting for is the go signal from their masters. I’m sure the Democrat Party and the MSM will do their part to leverage the ensuing death and chaos to maximum advantage for the Democrats. Never let a good crisis go to waste as they say. So Happy Thanksgiving to all and be sure to enjoy time with friends and family until the fun starts.

Nothing good is coming out of the persecution of Jews in many of our so called “institutions of higher learning”. However it does provide our government the opportunity to identify racist students from overseas and to deport them back to wherever they came from. We are forced to deal with our own prejudiced citizens, but not with imported rabble rousers.

Excellent article telling the TRUTH.
What else would you expect from democrats who support and finance Terrorist.? obama and Dictator Beijing biden have done nothing but give $Billions to Terrorist intentionally and support.
Just look at the Illegal Alien Terrorist Invasion by Dictator Beijing biden’s FULL support by NOT securing our borders.
This NEVER happened with President Trump because he put the United States of America FIRST.

There is a solution to the illegal migrant crisis; the Kate Steinle Illegal Migrant Registration Act (IMRA) the details of which one can find by doing a web search for Adler von Pfingsten which will direct to a website of the same name where you will find Pamphlet No.7 Kate Steinle IMRA.
Very simply, IMRA would authorize the charter of a bank to be used exclusively by illegal migrants including the issuing of ATM cards bearing a picture and biometric data i.e. an ATM system tied directly to the INS requiring weekly exchanges. Furthermore, there would be an incentive in that the card would serve as a work permit and all funds that would normally go to the SSA would be deposited to the bank to reimburse the states and federal governments the cost ofwelfare.
It’s much more complex than there is room for here…but IMRA would work.

If people violate the law, they can and are prosecuted. Why not in this exact instance? Titles and positions should be of more focus. Ineptness is combined with intent, a consequence bringing harm to millions. Tolerate it no more!

Well, PaulE, let me update you right now. Two terrorists killed at Rainbow Bridge, between Canada & United States. This is now a new article for the media, but should not be surprised at all with all the illegals that have been allowed to cross our borders and remain in the U.S. I wonder what else is coming….

The northern border between the US and Canada should be included in this topic as well. So in essence, no where in America is safe under Biden’s communist regime. See Rainbow Bridge…

I smell a further watering down of individual liberties with this new media narrative about issues like “sleeper cells” and “hordes of terrorist invaders wearing sombreros”.
We lost this nation and Bin Laden won starting the evening of 9/11/2001 and a stake was driven into the heart of the Bill of Rights with the onerous “Patriot Act”.
What will they take from us now with this new scare narrative? We shall soon see. Despite common misperception it was not Rahm Immanual that came up with the old saw “never let a crisis go to waste”, but rather that originated with Winston Churchill, but please understand that our entitled leader class will take full advantage of this latest spooky narrative. Get ready for CBDC and lay a deposit on your new pod with a mini fridge full of bugs.

This isn’t only Bidens doin he’s just the puppet. Obama is running this country illegally and Biden is letting him do it . There already have been over two hundred thousand Americans that have died from fentinal and im sure hundred of illegals have died as well thats not including the women who get raped , and the child trafficking wich they have already lost track of eighty thousand children . I don’t get it Biden and Obama is obviously gone against the constitution by not up holding and protecting the American people our country has gone from great to barely making it that doesn’t include the homeless , every single policy that Obama had nine years ago while he was in office he has done the same thing and worse. Obama is a Traitor of the American people and should be prosecuted for his crimes along with Biden and his administration, and F.B.I as well as who ever eles is involved.

What is wrong with “Close the border except for commerce” as a solution? The United States can put a man on the moon and send a telescope into outer space, but can’t control it’s own border?? Nonesense. Furthermore I am never going to advocate for any form of amnesty, driver’s licenses, special ID cards, bank cards, or any other form of passive legitimization for illegal immigrants. What I need is a President with a spine.
