EXCLUSIVE — Border Patrol agents in southeastern Arizona arrested a Pakistani national on the disgraced FBI’s terrorism watch list who attempted to illegally enter the United States from Mexico last week, according to two federal sources.
Two senior Customs and Border Protection officials in Washington told the Washington Examiner on Monday afternoon that federal law enforcement agents stationed out of the Ajo, Arizona, station nabbed a noncitizen who is a known or suspected terrorist, according to the federal government’s data.
The unnamed Pakistani individual crossed only hours after pandemic policy Title 42 had ended and on the same day approximately 700 illegal immigrants were apprehended near Ajo, as the Washington Examiner previously reported.

This comes just days after a man from Afghanistan was caught coming across the border, and was discovered to be on the disgraced FBI’s terror watchlist.
The man was arrested as he crossed the border alongside a group of other illegal aliens near Otay Mesa, Commie California.

A separate report from Breitbart explains:
According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection report, a total of 80 migrants who are listed in the Terrorist Screening Database have been apprehended after entering the United States along the southwest border between ports of entry this fiscal year. Two more were apprehended after crossing the northern border with Canada. The data includes migrants apprehended between October 2022 and March 2023.
