The sheep on the site have all alluded to the immigrants as having the same rights as citizens, and are all good people just trying to earn a buck.

Several times I have brought up issues that the left has never cared about. They continue not to care in order to push their agenda.

The first is Human trafficking for sex slavery. I've spent enough time on that. It hasn't made any difference, and the left doesn't care about these children.

The second is that we've lost more to fentanyl than in the Vietnam War.

The third is that not all of these "fine, outstanding, asylum seeking people" are intent on good.

And while it's okay to put parents that are worried about their children in school and what they should learn, true terrorists are also coming in to the border. I know, I know, these are just misunderstood people that want to destroy our Republic and kill all of you. We should coddle them and make them happy.

Terrorist watchlist arrests up as 2M migrants cross border

Following recently released data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection maintaining more than 2 million people have crossed into the United States in a year for the first time, a major concern is now trespassers on the terrorist watch list, as at least 78 individuals on the terrorist watch list have been arrested since Oct. 1 - and 12 of those arrests were made in August alone.

It's an issue that has also affected the Tucson sector, which has seen a 10% increase in encounters, going from 17,709 encounters in July to 19,574 in August.

"This is kind of one of these cat-and-mouse games that we play every day here, more specifically in this area," Jose Robert Ortiz, a Tucson sector Border Patrol agent, told NewsNation's "Rush Hour" on Wednesday.

"There could be some people staged up right now or they could be up on that hill, but we do know for a fact when they're standing around looking like that, there's either something about to happen or they're calling traffic out that's already here that we can't see at the moment," he added.

Meanwhile, Nogales, Arizona, is experiencing what Border Patrol calls task saturation - which is a situation where, within an hour, nine people, coming in pairs or alone as scouts on the Mexico side of the border, send migrants across to go through the holes in the wall or climb over all at once, knowing agents can't catch them all.

This as Border Patrol is saying they are understaffed, with 800 to 900 fewer agents in the sector since 2019.

    I didn't think anyone had the spine to answer this. Note to self.

    It's answerable, but you won't like the answer, OD. We have no shortage of home-grown bad people. We have domestic rapists, drug-dealers, thieves and murderers...some I assume are good people.

    Interesting, I just flashed on the subject(s) that you spent all your time on and told you those were the ones I had covered, except for the main thrust of the Thread.

    That those actually on the terrorist watch lists are coming over in droves because of the open border.

    Wow, You continually do this. You cherry pick what you want to argue and forget the main piece.

    The other item was the lack of BPS Agents because they can't fill the slots. Many of the slots are open because of agents retiring early, going to other agencies, or out of the government all together.

    You mean that I cherry-picked the title of your article and addressed that? I thought it important to respond to your statement "there are bad people on the border" with some facts.

    What do you think is your main point?

    Also, your article states "at least 78 individuals on the terrorist watch list have been arrested". That deserves some context.

    There are approximately 420,000 individuals on the Terrorist Watchlist. About 8,400 of those on the list are domestic, that is Americans, according to the FBI.

    The number of those on the terrorist watch list that have been caught has gone up exponentially in the past year.

    It sounds like you view those caught are just misunderstood children that maybe didn't get enough love from daddy. Having dealt with terrorism since the rise of Bader- Meinhof, Rota Brigade, and the (1970's) IRA, I think that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

    To assist them, one of the first things pedojoe did when he got in to the Whitehouse was to undo EO13920, (which made it illegal for a foreign adversary to own any part of our electrical grid). So now, China, Iran, Russia could take out our entire grid in a matter of flipping a switch. This wouldn't take an EMP to take out huge swaths of the grid.

    OD,
    I wasn't thinking that the people in the terrorist watch list among the immigrants were people who were neglected children devoid of parental love, I was thinking those on the list might have been parents concerned about what was being taught to their children in school.

    More to the point I don't think that because there was maybe 78 people on the terrorist watch list out of the hundreds of thousands of people wanting to immigrate here that all would-be immigrants should be tarred with that same brush.
