DHS Report: Biden admin. released migrant on terrorist watchlist, took two weeks to arrest

The following is from Just The News.

The Biden administration’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency released an illegal immigrant on the terrorist watchlist, and due to a lack of coordination, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) took more than two weeks to arrest the individual, according to a report released by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General.

The report, which was completed last week, found that after apprehending the illegal immigrant in Arizona in April 2022, the CBP released them “without providing information requested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Terrorist Screening Center (TSC) that would have confirmed the migrant was a positive match with the Terrorist Screening Data Set (Terrorist Watchlist).”

The illegal immigrant is referred to as “they,” “their,” or “them” in the report “to avoid identifying the migrant’s gender,” according to a footnote in the report.

The OIG explained that the illegal immigrant was released because the “CBP’s ineffective practices and processes for resolving inconclusive matches with the Terrorist Watchlist led to multiple mistakes.”

Some of the CBP’s mistakes included emailing to an incorrect email address to request an interview with the illegal immigrant, never sharing information it obtained for the FBI’s TSC, and releasing the individual “before fully coordinating with the TSC,” according to the report.

The illegal immigrant wasn’t arrested until May 6, due to “challenges transferring documentation while planning to arrest the migrant and obtaining GPS data while conducting the arrest,” the DHS watchdog wrote.
