Border patrol agents have reported they captured a “potential terrorist” after he illegally crossed the border into the United States. Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Chris Clem announced agents apprehended an illegal immigrant from Saudi Arabia who is “linked to several Yemeni subjects of interest.”

According to Townhall:
The jacket the suspect is wearing in his arrest photo belongs to the Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin reported Chief Thomas Meyers told them they have “no affiliation with this man, and he has never worked for them. They also don’t know where he got the jacket.”
The Yuma Sector has been one of the sectors along the U.S.-Mexico border that has seen a dramatic increase in illegal crossings during the historic crisis. The sector has seen a 584 percent increase in single adult encounters, a 242 percent increase in family unit encounters, and a 237 percent increase in unaccompanied children encounters during fiscal year 2021 compared to fiscal year 2020.
As a result of the high number of crossings, many agents are assigned to processing or transporting the large groups instead of patrolling. Townhall reported last week many times only two to three agents are assigned to patrol during the day and one to two agents are patrolling at night along large parts of the Yuma Sector
President Biden has repeatedly ignored and downplayed conservatives concern of dangerous criminals easily entering the country with an insecure border.
