The good news is America is still a shining city on a hill, attracting more people than at any other time in history.
The bad news is that in Joe Biden’s America, many of those people are terrorists who want to bomb our country into the Stone Age.
A record number of dangerous people illegally entered the nation this year, a stunning new report revealed this week. Border Patrol agents apprehended 98 known or suspected terrorists in the 2022 fiscal year. That is more than any time in U.S. history, officials at U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported. The fiscal year runs from October through September.
That’s almost four times higher than the last five years combined.
During the Trump administration and the first few months of the Biden administration, the total number of individuals whose names are on the terror watch list that were caught at the border totaled 26.
Almost that many came across Biden’s broken border last month.
“20 suspected terrorists were arrested at the southern border in September alone,” noted Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala. “We need to secure our border and finish building President Trump’s wall.”

“The Terrorist Screening Dataset (TSDS) — also known as the ‘watchlist’ — is the U.S. government’s database that contains sensitive information on terrorist identities,” explained the USCBP. It was created “to house information on known or suspected terrorists (KSTs) but has evolved over the last decade to include additional individuals who represent a potential threat to the United States, including known affiliates of watchlisted individuals.”

The U.S. has seen a 392 percent increase in would-be terrorists or their affiliates sneaking across the Rio Grande or the Arizona corridor, concentrated in Biden’s first full year in office…and he has three more years to go.
“We said months ago he was just getting started. And he was,” said the National Border Patrol Council, the union of Border Patrol agents who have the bear the brunt of Biden’s terror-inducing immigration policies.
To make matters worse, the rate of terrorists coming across America’s border illegally has been accelerating in the last few months. Two-thirds of the historic number of terrorists caught this year have come in the last six months.
By the end of March — halfway through the 2022 fiscal years — Border Patrol had reported capturing 27 people on the TSDS. 25 of them were from Colombia.
In the last few months, there has been a massive pool of illegal immigrants coming to the United States from Colombia, Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua. Colombia is a haven for narcoterrorists and the communist insurgency FARC. The other three countries are Communist nations hostile to the U.S. — especially Venezuela after former President Trump supported the legally elected government of Juan Guaido over Marxist dictator Nicolas Maduro.
Is Maduro sending terrorists to the United States now that he knows Biden has opened the border?
Experts thought Biden’s lax immigration enforcement had reached an all-time low last year.

The U.S. arrested 15 terrorists in 2021, a huge spike compared to the Trump administration. Border Patrol agents nabbed six people on the terror watch list in 2017, three in 2020, and two in 2016.
In 2019, the number of terrorists sneaking into the United States was zero, thanks to tough border enforcement from President Donald Trump.
All that’s changed under Joe Biden == and it’s not as though he didn’t know this was a problem. Republicans have been pointing out the fact that the Biden-Harris administration is importing danger for months.
In August, Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa, highlighted the danger. “There have been a record number of suspected terrorists apprehended at the southern border this year,” she tweeted. “Border security is national security.”

In June, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., warned, “Border Patrol has come across a recent record number of people on the terrorist watchlist.”

Then he asked the truly chilling question: “But with more than 3 million people pouring over Biden’s Open Border, the question has to be asked: who are we NOT catching?”

Terrorists, drug cartels, gangs like MS-13, and other predators blend easily into the throng of illegals pouring across the southern border. A total of 2.3 million illegal aliens were encountered by law enforcement during the 2021-2022 fiscal year. That includes 227,000 in September alone.

Crime is already rising in Biden’s America because criminals know that Soros-funded prosecutors will not prosecute them. They likely won’t even have to post bail.
Now, illegal immigrants are joining the ranks of people who wish law-abiding, middle-class Americans harm. And the problem will only get worse as long as Biden and the open borders Democratic Party run the show.
