Terrorist Suspects Attempt Illegal U.S. Entry

Two on terror watch list now in custody.

In a statement issued Monday, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed two illegal migrants from Yemen, who were on the FBI’s terror watchlist and no-fly list, are in custody after they were apprehended while illegally crossing the border near California ports of entry.

Agents from the El Centro Station arrested one of the suspects in March. During an interview on Monday, California Representative Darrell Issa stressed the 26-year-old terrorist suspect is a high-value target.

“We have always been just one slip up away from another 9/11,” he stated. “The kind of disaster that happened on 9/11 can be done again with a truck load of fertilizer… can be done again with a stolen aircraft.”

Meanwhile, the second Yemeni man was caught sneaking into the southern border earlier this year while carrying a secret sim card hidden in his shoe. Congressman Issa warned if the two aliens had been able to slip back into the general population, they could have been very difficult to find.

He later stated, “The southern border is a wall with an open gate that never closes.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Customs and Border Protection agents as they work to protect national security.
  • That U.S. agencies work successfully together to prevent terrorists from entering the nation.
