(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) The Biden administration is lying about the unprecedented number of terrorists illegally crossing the United States’ southern border, with actual data indicating record-breaking incursions.
The Epoch Times cited an interview that Rep. Clay Higgins, R-La., gave to media outlet MTD in which Higgins claimed that thousands of “known or suspected terrorists” may have entered the United States on Sleepy Joe Biden’s watch.
“Towards the end of last year, I had estimated that we had lost about 250 KSTs, known and suspected terrorists,” Higgins said, but then revised the number upward due to the incredibly high number of so-called “got-aways” that entered the United States.
“From my perspective, with data delivered to me by boots on the ground . . . I think it’s reasonable for Americans to sort of step back and say, ‘My God, we have somewhere between 500 and 1,000 known and suspected terrorists [that] have entered into our country across our southern border since President [Joe] Biden has been inaugurated into office,” Higgins continued.
“Those 700,000 got-aways are here due to the limited Border Patrol staffing at the Southwest border and the fact that the Biden administration has ditched and abjured migrant deterrence as an immigration policy,” wrote CIS scholar Andrew Arthur.
Higgins criticized the Biden administration for its failure to protect Americans.
“It’s a startling number, it should frighten us all, it should drive us to greater action to confront the Biden administration’s failed border policies to insist upon the resignation of Secretary Mayorkas and to promise the American people that if Mayorkas does not resign, he’s going to be impeached,” Higgins said.
Higgins’ comments come in the immediate aftermath of the discovery of the bodies of 53 dead migrants in a tractor-trailer in a San Antonio neighborhood earlier this week.
