In 2021, two Yemeni nationals, both on the FBI Terrorism Watchlist, were apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents at two separate times as they attempted to cross our southern border.
CBP officials posted a press release detailing the capture, but Biden Administration officials shut them down, demanding the press release be removed, undermining our border agents who put their lives on the line.
These arrests exposed the incompetence and inaction of Biden’s failed immigration policies that created this crisis and left America exposed and vulnerable to attack. After hearing about the scrubbed press release, the ACLJ filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request against FOUR Biden agencies demanding answers. Now we’ve received a flood of records from DHS, which have only confirmed our suspicions – the Biden Administration didn’t want you to know about the arrests.
Not only has Biden ignored the disaster at the border – passing the buck to Vice President Harris, a disastrous move in itself – but Biden’s policy of no policy has only increased the threats to Americans. As he promised, Biden stopped the construction of Trump’s border wall, leaving massive gaps. He pushed to end Title 42, the pandemic policy that prevented millions of undocumented migrants from entering. And most recently, the Biden Administration cut the critical “aerostats” security program that used remote blimps to help CBP agents spot bad guys before they could cross the border.
Together, we can make a stronger, more secure border for all Americans - those born here, and those who came legally.
