The crisis at the southern border is a humanitarian tragedy.

There are thousands of kids locked up in overcrowded detention centers, overworked border agents and massive disease risk and growing profits for ruthless cartels and human traffickers.

Even though President Biden is now telling migrants not to come, he signed executive orders on amnesty as soon as he got in office and has sent completely mixed messages.

In fact, Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (Amlo) has even called Biden the “migrant president” and criticized the American leader for strengthening the power of cartels and human traffickers.

Now news is coming out that’s even more alarming, as US Customs and Border Patrol (USCBP) announces that agents have arrested four individuals at the southern border who are on the FBI’s terror watchlist.

Catching Terror Suspects at the Southern Border

According to the FBI, four arrests of terror watchlist suspects have been made since last October. Three are from the African nation of Yemen, which is currently engaged in a horrible civil war and is full of terrorism and extremism.

The fourth individual is reportedly from Serbia, a nation with a bloody history including numerous war crimes and horrific activities against the Bosnian, Croatian and Kosovar people in the Yugoslav Wars.

USCBP revealed the arrests on Tuesday to Congress, noting in a report that those who were arrested are “known to be or reasonably suspected of being involved in terrorist activities.”

This news is breaking even while GOP representatives have been warning about the terrorists and extremists who are trying to use the massive migrant flow from Mexico and South America to secretly slip in the southern border.

“Individuals that they have on the watchlist for terrorism are now starting to exploit the southern border. We need to wake up,” said Representative John Katko of New York.

In 2018 there were six arrests of terror watchlist individuals from Yemen and Bangladesh at the border and in 2017 over 3,700 individuals were stopped by the Department of Homeland Security coming into the United States by air.

While the Trump administration took a strict approach to borders and did their best to stop violent extremists from entering this country, the Biden administration has made it clear that they regard borders as racist and want to stop prosecuting those who illegally come into the country.

Red Alert

President Trump won the 2016 election partly because he understood that Americans were sick and tired of having two sets of rules: one for those who follow the law and one for those who break it.

Hardworking families have to pay taxes and play by the rules while migrants, criminals and random people stream through the southern border and get looked after by the government.

Responsible gun owners keep having higher fees and restrictions while criminals get more and more access to dangerous weapons and have their sentences lessened by progressive politicians.

The list goes on.

As Trump said: “without borders, we don’t have a country.”

Trump’s statement is 100% correct. America could be the greatest it’s ever been but it wouldn’t matter if the borders are like a sieve and not secure.

Now that news is emerging of these terror suspects being arrested we all have to ask ourselves the obvious next question:

How many people might have gotten through in the last few years who were not caught by authorities and are now plotting attacks on American soil?

The border needs to be fully secured immediately. This is a national emergency.
