Lawsuit Claims Biden is Withholding Details on Terror Suspects Crossing the Border

By Victor Winston, updated on October 28, 2023

A recent lawsuit suggests that the Biden administration might be keeping crucial information about terror suspects detained at the US-Mexico border under wraps.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has taken legal action against President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The lawsuit alleges that the DHS is not revealing essential details about terror suspects who have been detained at the border over the past three years.

Earlier this year, the CIS made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. They sought records that would show the nationalities and affiliations of an unprecedented 270 illegal border-crossers.

These individuals had been flagged on the FBI terrorism watch since 2021.

However, the DHS did not respond to the FOIA request made by the CIS in August.

Reasons Behind the Lawsuit

Colin Farnsworth, the Chief FOIA Counsel for CIS, expressed his concerns in a conversation with Todd Bensman. He stated that the lawsuit was deemed necessary due to several reasons. One of the primary reasons being the significant public interest in the requested records.

Moreover, there are indications that the Customs and Border Patrol might be causing unreasonable delays in processing these records, Breitbart reported.

Since the commencement of Biden's term, almost 300 illegal aliens have been detained at the southern border. These individuals matched the federal government's "Terrorist Watch List".

DHS Acknowledges the Rising Threat

A recent agency memo from the DHS subtly acknowledged the increasing terrorism threat at the border. This poses a growing concern for the national security of Americans.

The officials anticipate a continued high number of migrant encounters in the upcoming year. They also warned that terrorists and criminal actors might exploit the situation.

The elevated flow and the complex security environment could be used by these actors to enter the United States.

It's essential to note that the southern border has always been a topic of debate. But with the rising number of terror suspects being detained, it's becoming a pressing concern for the nation.

Conclusion and Implications

The lawsuit filed by the CIS brings to light the potential lack of transparency from the Biden administration. The non-disclosure of crucial information about terror suspects can have severe implications for national security.

Furthermore, the increasing number of terror suspects being detained at the border is alarming. It emphasizes the need for stringent border security measures and transparent communication from the administration.

With the DHS acknowledging the rising threat, it remains to be seen how the Biden administration will address this issue in the coming months.

Final Thoughts

The situation at the US-Mexico border has always been a contentious issue. However, the recent developments and the lawsuit filed by the CIS add another layer of complexity to it.

It's crucial for the administration to ensure transparency and take necessary actions to safeguard national security. The citizens deserve to know the truth about the potential threats they might be facing.

Only time will tell how this situation unfolds and what measures the Biden administration will take in response.
