According to sources at the US Customs and Border Patrol, an Afghan national on the FBI’s terror watchlist was caught illegally crossing into the United States in California on Wednesday.
Speaking to Fox News, those sources said that the Afghan national crossed the US-Mexico border near the town of Otay Mesa, California. He was taken to a migrant processing station along with the others in the group and a fingerprint scan at the facility determined that he was on the Terrorist Screening Database, leading to the FBI beginning an investigation.
That Afghan national crossed the border a day before the expiration of Title 42, which allowed Border Patrol agents to more easily turn away migrants. Untold thousands have crossed the border since the expiration of the policy, with no end in sight and advancing columns full of migrants on the way.
Rep. Darrell Issa, a Republican member of Congress who represents the California district where the arrest was made, told Fox News the Biden administration’s border policies attract terrorists, saying, “Biden’s open borders aren’t just a gateway to five million illegals, record human and child trafficking and the deadliest drug crisis in our history.”
Continuing, Rep. Issa added, “Biden’s reckless policy is also an open invitation to even the most wanted terrorists in the world to come to America. They know they’ll never have to leave. The nation knows what’s going on and this president has only begun to be held accountable for what he has done.”
In addition to an individual on the terror watchlist crossing into the United States illegally, a suspected serial killer in California crossed into the US illegally during the Obama-Biden Administration, as we reported on The American Tribune, saying:
A man was arrested in California late last week in connection with a string of murderers. But, the suspected serial killer is no American from California. Rather, the suspected serial killer, Carlos Dominguez, is an illegal immigrant from El Salvador. He came to the United States as an unaccompanied minor during the Obama Administration.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has filed a detainer request for Dominguez, who is 21 years old and arrived in the United States in 2009, coming through Galveston, TX. ABC 10, reporting on the situation, notes that the detainer means Dominguez will be detained by ICE if local law enforcement authorities release him.
Dominguez, a former University of California Davis student, is accused of stabbing three people. Two of the victims were stabbed to death and the remaining victim is recovering from the attack in the hospital. Each of the stabbings was a separate incident, occurring from April 27 to May 1 of this year, 2023.
Those killed were David Breaux and Karim Abou Najm. The third, surviving victim is Kimberlee Guillory. Still in the hospital, she said, “I’m grateful that I’m alive and that I wasn’t killed. I was so scared when he started punching me. I thought that’s what he was doing, was punching me. I didn’t realize he was stabbing me until afterwards. Everything just went kind of black from there.”
Continuing, she then said, “I’m glad that they got him. I was praying for that, that nobody else will have to go through this. Me and the other two victims never did anything to him. There was no reason for him to come after people that that he didn’t even know.”
