Border Alert: 5 FBI Terror Watch List Illegals CAPTURED!

Border Alert: 5 FBI Terror Watch List Illegals CAPTURED!

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Five illegals were detained by Border Patrol authorities in one border sector; it was later determined that they were on the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) watch list.

The arrests occurred Friday in the United States Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector just after Title 42 ended. The migrants were directed to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task for additional investigation and identity confirmation, according to a Customs and Border Protection source who was not authorized to speak to the media.

According to the source, throughout the day and into the evening on Friday, several events resulted in the detention of the foreign individuals who crossed the border without authorization and tried to escape being discovered and apprehended.

No information was available about the nationalities or demographics of the detained migrants.

80 immigrants who are on the Terrorist Screening Database’s list have been detained after crossing the southwest border between ports of entry this fiscal year, according to a report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. After crossing into Canada from the north, two additional people were caught.

Data on immigrants detained between October 2022 and March 2023 is included. The migrants who are investigated as coming from particular interest nations are different from the migrants whose names are listed in the TSDB.

The FBI claims that the Terrorist Screening Database includes data on specific people allegedly reasonably suspected of being involved in terrorism (or associated activities).

When a person’s name appears in the TSDB, a reporting procedure informs the FBI of a Border Patrol interaction. According to the source, the encounter led to more examination, which included confirming that the immigrant whose name matches one on the list is actually the same person.

According to the source, DHS’s further actions on the potential outcomes a migrant may experience after initial processing are determined by the investigation results and additional interviews conducted by the FBI’s JTTF.

The database is maintained by the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center (TSC), which also shares the data with other law enforcement organizations like the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense.

The existence of somebody on the watchlist is not confirmed by the TSC. The majority of those on the terrorism watchlist, according to the FBI, are foreign nationals with no known ties to the United States.

Under the Biden administration, the number of migrants who appeared in the TSDB increased dramatically. Agents only apprehended 14 migrants who appeared in the national security database in the four fiscal years of the Trump administration (FY 17 through FY 20).

According to the CBP report, officials detained 196 known or suspected terrorists on the list for FY 21, FY 22, and Year-to-Date FY 23. The arrests made on Friday are not included in these figures.

According to a statement CBP made in March about migrants on the TSDS list:

“TSDS watchlisted individuals encountered by the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) after entering the country without inspection may be detained and removed, to the extent possible under CBP policy, or turned over to another government agency for subsequent detention or law enforcement action, as appropriate.

The TSDS originated as the consolidated terrorist watchlist to house information on known or suspected terrorists (KSTs) but has evolved over the last decade to include additional individuals who represent a potential threat to the United States, including known affiliates of watchlisted individuals.”

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director’s Resignation

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director's Resignation

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – President Donald Trump responded to Kimberly Cheatle’s statement on Tuesday that she was leaving her role as director of the Secret Service due to criticism of the way her organization handled the recent attempt on the previous president’s life.

Trump said, “She never gave me proper protection, so I ended up having to take a bullet for democracy,” in an afternoon interview with Fox News Digital.

He said that his campaign made multiple requests for more protection, which the agency either flatly denied or disregarded.

“Many requests were made by on-site Secret Service for more people, always with a turn down or no response,” Trump told the news outlet. “I have the biggest crowds in history, and they should be treated accordingly.”

He added, “Big improvements have been made over the last week,” Fox News Digital reported.

Cheatle announced her resignation in writing to the Secret Service on Tuesday morning, despite her earlier refusal to do so.

“To the Men and Women of the U.S. Secret Service, The Secret Service’s solemn mission is to protect our nation’s leaders and financial infrastructure,” Cheatle wrote. “On July 13th, we fell short on that mission.”

She was under pressure to step down during Monday’s House Oversight Committee hearing, as she acknowledged that the agency’s reaction to the attempted assassination was a “failure.” This pressure came from all sides of the aisle.

According to a recent press release, United States Representative Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) submitted a motion that evening that would have forced a vote in the House to impeach Cheatle following her initial refusal to step down on Monday.

In response to Mace’s question during the hearing on whether the agency’s response was “a colossal failure,” the director said, “Yes.” Mace attacked the Secret Service for its lack of openness, pointing out that Cheatle’s testimony had to be subpoenaed by legislators.

Before the hearing, she accused the director of leaking her opening statement to several media sites.

When asked how often the agency had turned down the Trump campaign’s demands for more security throughout her testimony, Cheatle remained silent.

During the committee’s opening remarks, she acknowledged that the Secret Service’s reaction to the attempted assassination was “the most significant operational failure of the agency in decades.”

Nevertheless, she insisted that she was “the best person” to run the organization then.

President Joe Biden issued a statement acknowledging Cheatle’s decision and expressing gratitude for her service on Tuesday afternoon, following her resignation in response to the growing calls for her resignation.

“As a leader, it takes honor, courage, and incredible integrity to take full responsibility for an organization tasked with one of the most challenging jobs in public service,” the statement read. “The independent review to get to the bottom of what happened on July 13th continues, and I look forward to assessing its conclusions. We all know what happened that day can never happen again.”

During her hearing before the committee on Monday, Cheatle stated that the agency’s ongoing initial internal assessment would take around sixty days.

Do you believe there should be a criminal investigation into the Secret Service Director’s lack of security for President Trump?

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The competition to become Vice President Kamala Harris’s running partner is intensifying. It has been reported that her campaign has sent screening papers to several prominent Democrats.

Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Governor Josh Shapiro (D-PA), seen as strong candidates from crucial battleground states, are leading the pack.

Harris’s campaign carefully evaluates potential vice presidential candidates as she seeks the Democratic presidential nomination.

Alongside Kelly and Shapiro, governors Roy Cooper (D-NC), Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), Tim Walz (D-MN), and J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) have also been given vetting paperwork. However, Pritzker has denied receiving such materials.

One notable omission from the list is Governor Andy Beshear (D-KY), who many see as a leading contender.

Beshear stated that despite vigorous campaigning for the position, he had not received any correspondence from the Harris campaign concerning the vice-presidential screening procedure.

The selection process is underway as Harris’s team looks to enhance its ticket with a running mate who will appeal to a wide range of voters and strengthen support in key states.

Kelly and Shapiro are perceived as centrist leaders who, due to their considerable political backgrounds, have the potential to draw in moderate voters.

Kelly, the current senator from Arizona and a former astronaut, has a proven track record in Arizona.

At the same time, Shapiro’s leadership in Pennsylvania is distinguished by his emphasis on progressive ideals and his ability to win elections in a swing state.

The main goal of her campaign plan seems to be selecting a running mate who can enhance Harris’s program and increase the Democratic ticket’s appeal to a wide range of voters in essential areas and demographics.

The fact that there are several governors indicates that candidates with executive expertise and a track record of successful leadership are preferred.

The screening process is anticipated to be rigorous, involving a detailed review of the candidates’ public personas and political positions and significant background investigations.

The campaign’s final choice will probably try to strike a compromise between political tactics and the requirement for a solid and cooperative alliance in the White House.

As the Democratic National Convention draws near, there is growing conjecture and expectation over Harris’s final choice for her ticket partner.

The chosen vice-presidential candidate will be crucial to the party’s unity and mobilization of the electorate before the November election.

Does it matter who Harris selects as her VP as she goes against the Trump/Vance ticket?

Local Police Barred From Investigating Trump Assassination

butler-pennsylvania-usa-on-map

Local Pennsylvania police officers revealed to Congress that they were barred from entering a Secret Service command center at President Trump’s rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, on July 13, according to Republican Tennessee Rep. Mark Green. This revelation has raised serious concerns about the competency of the Secret Service, especially in the wake of a blatant assassination attempt.

Rep. Green, the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, along with other bipartisan committee members, toured the Butler Farm Show grounds where 20-year-old Thomas Crooks attempted to assassinate President Trump. Green expressed frustration and concern, stating, “Normally, according to the local sheriff, they have done these events in the past with the Secret Service and always had one of their people in that Secret Service control room. Apparently, that was not allowed this time for some reason,” after his tour of the crime scene, which has been closed to the public since July 13.

The lack of coordination and communication between local and federal law enforcement is alarming. Green, an Army veteran, highlighted this as a glaring example of the miscommunication that put the President’s life at risk. He mentioned ongoing efforts to get more information about the radios used by law enforcement on the day of the rally.

Paul Mauro, a Fox News legal and criminal analyst, explained that a command center is typically a place for all involved law enforcement agencies to streamline communication. It’s a fundamental security measure that was inexplicably ignored. The Secret Service’s failure to integrate local law enforcement into its command center is not just a misstep but a severe breach of protocol that could have had catastrophic consequences.

The incompetence displayed by the Secret Service during Trump’s rally is unforgivable. Green and other lawmakers are rightfully demanding accountability. The Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle’s leadership is under scrutiny. During a media briefing, Green described the situation as an “abysmal failure” and called for Cheatle’s resignation. He cited examples of members of Congress accessing the very roof Crooks used to fire upon the crowd without any security hindrances and noted that law enforcement failed to utilize a nearby water tower for surveillance.

Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Mark Kelly also voiced his outrage, highlighting reports that law enforcement was aware of a suspicious person an hour before Trump took the stage. “If there was an idea that there was somebody here that was suspect, why even allow President Trump to even go up to the podium … and why did we go ahead and continue with the program?” Kelly questioned. The lack of proactive measures to protect the President is beyond comprehension.

The attempt on President Trump’s life resulted in the tragic death of Corey Comperatore, a dedicated husband, father, and former fire chief. Two other individuals, David Dutch and James Copenhaver, were critically wounded. This incident is not just a breach of security but a heartbreaking reminder of the consequences of incompetence.

Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle’s evasive response to whether she will fire those responsible is unacceptable. The American people deserve better. The security failures must be addressed, and those responsible should be held accountable. It is clear that significant changes need to be made to restore faith in the Secret Service’s ability to protect our leaders.

In the face of such failures, the call for resignations is not just justified but necessary. The safety of President Trump and all our leaders depends on it. It’s time for the Secret Service to undergo a thorough overhaul, ensuring that such dangerous lapses in security never happen again. The American people demand and deserve accountability and competence from those sworn to protect their leaders.
