Under Biden, 1,000s of Mostly Middle Eastern 'Special Interest Aliens' Caught Crossing into U.S.: Border Patrol

"Unless they've committed a crime in the U.S. – or are on some sort of federal watchlist – there’s nothing to match a name to when Border Patrol Agents run fingerprints."

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — Internal Customs & Border Protection (CBP) data provided & confirmed by CBP sources revealed that 1,000s of “Special Interest Aliens” from mostly Middle Eastern Countries have been apprehended by Border Patrol while crossing into U.S. illegally over last 2 years.
The term “Special Interest Aliens” is used by the U.S. Government to refer to people coming from countries that have conditions that favor or harbor terrorism, or pose a potential national security to the United States.​​​​

Border Patrol sources earlier this week told Fox News's Bill Melugin that they have "extreme concerns" about who is coming into the country – because they have little to no way of vetting people from these “Special Interest Countries."

"I’m told unless they have committed a crime previously in the U.S. – or they are on some sort of federal watchlist – there’s no way to know who they are because most of their home countries don’t share data or records with the U.S.  There's nothing to match a name to when Border Patrol Agents run fingerprints," said Melugin by tweet.
