The Biden administration has forced a top border patrol agent to delete a tweet about a “potential terrorist” apprehended at the U.S. border, with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) claiming the tweet violated agency regulations.
Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Chris Clem wrote in a Dec 20 tweet that agents in the area had “apprehended a potential terrorist who illegally entered the U.S. from Mexico.”
“The 21-year-old migrant from Saudi Arabia is linked to several Yemeni subjects of interest,” he added.
The since-deleted tweet has been archived here:
CBP Public Affairs Assistant Commissioner Luis Miranda released a statement claiming that the tweet was deleted because “it contained law enforcement sensitive information, violating agency protocols.”
“All individuals encountered at or between U.S. ports of entry are screened and vetted against a broad range of law enforcement and intelligence information to determine if they pose a threat to national security or public safety, consistent with the law,” Miranda said in the statement.
“CBP is continuing to investigate the matter following its standard protocols. This may include referral, if appropriate, to other relevant law enforcement entities for further investigation and a custody determination,” the statement added.
Based on the Biden regime’s lax history on border enforcement, it is more likely that the tweet was deleted to cover up legitimate national security peril caused by open borders than due to agency rule violations.
Big League Politics has reported on the Biden regime pulling the plug on the border wall amidst an unprecedented wave of third-world migrants flooding the U.S.-Mexico border:
“The Department of Homeland Security announced it would formally cancel contracts to build President Donald Trump’s ‘big, beautiful’ wall on the southern border, specifically in South Texas, in an announcement on Friday.
The federal government had previously been paying as much as $5 million a day to contractors, with Biden issuing an executive order cancelling new wall construction without terminating the contracts the day he ascended to the presidential throne.
Cancellation of wall construction comes at the very moment that massive migrant caravans continue the largest continuous assault on the southern border, with almost ten thousand Haitian illegal immigrants already provided the gift of US residency after assailing the border at Del Rio International Bridge in Texas. Migration experts have warned of massive caravans of as many as 60,000 illegal migrants traveling to the United States, emboldened by Biden’s staunch support of an ‘America Last’ border and immigration policy.
The wall, derided by partisan-slop liberals as a joke, proved to have considerable national security value, with CBP personnel and border experts indicating it is indeed effective at deterring illegal immigration and forcing border infiltrators to target condensed areas that are easier for law enforcement to patrol. Almost 600 miles of border wall was constructed during Donald Trump’s reign on the presidential throne, much of it in dangerous areas previously protected with only crude barriers easy for drug and human smugglers to bypass.”
The border policies instituted by the Biden administration are destroying America by design. They want to suppress knowledge of terrorists entering the country through the porous southern border to keep the public in the dark while they devastate the nation to pave the way for a far-left takeover.
