U.S. Border Patrol agents detained two men on a federal terrorism watchlist who attempted to cross the southern border illegally, the agency said in a statement on Monday.

USBP detained the first suspect on January 29 and the second on March 30, while they attempted to cross into the U.S. near the Calexico border crossing in southern California. Both suspects are Yemeni nationals and are on the FBI’s terrorism watchlist and no-fly list. The suspects have since been transferred to federal custody.

“Part of the Border Patrol’s mission states we will protect the country from terrorists,” Chief Patrol Agent Gregory K. Bovino said in a statement. “These apprehensions at our border illustrates the importance of our mission and how we can never stop being vigilant in our everyday mission to protect this great country.”

The latest announcement comes after the Border Patrol told Axios on March 16 that four men on the terrorism watchlist were detained between October 1, 2020 and March 2021. It was not immediately clear if the suspect detained on January 29 was included in the count provided to Axios.

While encounters of known and suspected terrorists at our borders are very uncommon, they underscore the importance of the critical work our agents carry out on a daily basis to vet all individuals encountered at our borders,” USBP spokesman Justin Long told the Daily Caller.

The majority of migrants attempting to cross the southern border come from Mexico and Central America. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in March that the U.S. is “on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years.”

The Border Patrol detained over 171,000 migrants in March. Of those, 18,800 were unaccompanied minors, breaking the previous one-month record of 11,861 migrant children detained in May 2019.

  1. That was a wise decision by the Republican Party. Big tech and Big Corp who get free tax money and tax incentives should keep their personal opinions to themselves and then vote as they wish legally at elections.Delta won’t miss me as I fly Southwest.

  2. The reactionary responses to a states legislative work is like a child getting mad when it doesn’t get its own way! Who is diligently studying this new law to see it INCREASES voting privilege by adding safety factors! Keep politics out of sports decisions- don’t they keep their contracts?!Will you censor me?

  3. Has anyone in the demoncratic party done the math? I realize they have trouble with math, but at the current rate of invasion, how long will it take for Latinos to be the MAJORITY? Do they really think all these people are going to vote democratic, out of ‘gratitude’? NO! They are going to infuse campaigns with LATINO candidates, vote for THEM, and PRESTO! We have the United States of Mexico! Schumelosi and Harrisbiden and their mob will be OUT! Now, I have nothing against Latinos, but I have a BIG problem with ANY demographic taking over America! Right now, Asians, Africans, Hispanics, and Muslims are all competing for that goal – all with considerable success, thanks to liberalism! WAKE UP PEOPLE! YOU ARE SYSTEMATICALLY LOSING YOUR COUNTRY!

    1. Since most liberals don’t care about anybody other than themselves, they’ll have to accept their own self-serving agenda….which is already primed to backfire. Wake up folks. Evil is alive and well. It will not by nature destroy itself.
      Only the Truth will overcome evil, And if you don’t know the Truth you are lost for ever.

      Seek the truth where it originated….with Jesus. Read the book of John in the Bible and then you will begin to understand.

    2. well said Tom, i see it happening all over the country. Each area has it’s own enclaves. The fact that “no go” zones exist in America? WTF? We let it happen, so we must correct it.

  4. I love baseball but I will never watch another mlb game live or on tv, I will never drink another coke product, or will never fly on a Delta plane. I will pass this on to everyone I know or talk to to let them know how I feel.

  5. I’m sick and tired of all the pro sports teams getting on the nigger band wagon. Fuck them all. I will never watch another game. These assholes make millions and take a knee for the National Anthem. MLB should be ashamed of what they are doing. I just hope the people wake up and realize what there doing. I call on everybody to stop watching PRO sports and hope they go broke. Fuck all this nigger shit.

  6. It’s too bad that the rayziss people had to harass these two poor, misunderstood, choir boys. They were just trying to get to the “new” America, land of the sheep, home of the slave, and take a chance at living the American nightmare under the Neo-fascist democrats who hate the United States of America!
