CALEXICO, CA – Shortly after the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol issued a press release regarding the arrest of two Yemeni men on the FBI’s terrorist watch list, the press release was gone. Sources within Washington, D.C. claim the Department of Homeland Security ordered the press release pulled after it exposed a potential political problem for President Joe Biden and his negligent policy at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“The news release in question was not properly reviewed and contained certain disclosure and policy information related to national security that required CBP to remove it from our website,” said Rob Daniels, a public affairs specials for the CBP.
The release was deleted, but not before we were able to save a copy of that release.
The release, which has since been removed from the Border Patrol’s website read as follows:
U.S. Border Patrol Agents Assigned to the El Centro Sector arrested two Yemeni men within the last two months that were identified on a terrorism watch list.
The first incident occurred on January 29th at approximately 1:10 am, when agents assigned to the El Centro Station arrested a man for illegally entering the United States. Agents apprehended the man approximately three miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry and transported him to the El Centro Processing Center for immigration and criminal history screening.
Agents conducted records checks, which revealed the 33-year-old illegal alien from Yemen, was on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List as well as the No-Fly list.
Additionally, agents found a cellular sim card hidden underneath the insole of his shoe.
The man was transferred to the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The second incident occurred on March 30, at approximately 11:30 pm, when agents assigned to the El Centro Station arrested a man for illegally entering the United States. Agents apprehended the man approximately two miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry and transported him to the El Centro Processing Center for immigration and criminal history screening.
Agents conducted records checks, which revealed the man, a 26-year-old illegal alien from Yemen, was also on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List and on the No-Fly list.
The man is being held in federal custody pending removal.
“Part of the Border Patrol’s mission states we will protect the country from terrorists,” said Chief Patrol Agent Gregory K. Bovino. “Today, like every other day, our agents did that. These apprehensions at our border illustrates our mission and how we can never stop being vigilant in our everyday mission to protect this great country.”
