Two suspected terrorists on FBI, DHS watch lists arrested at US border

by Ryan Morgan

On Monday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that within the last two months, it caught two Yemeni nationals, listed on the FBI’s terrorism watch list, trying to cross through the same border sector.

On March 30, at approximately 11:30 p.m., border patrol agents assigned to the El Centro Station arrested a Yemeni man for illegally entering the U.S. The agents caught the man about two miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry and transported him to the El Centro Processing Center for immigration and criminal history screening.

Without providing his name, CBP said they performed a records check on the 26-year-old suspect, identifying him as a Yemeni man on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List and on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) No-Fly list.

A similar incident took place two months earlier when, on Janaury 29, border patrol agents caught another Yemeni man trying to enter the U.S. through the El Centro border sector on the California-Mexico border. Border agents apprehended that suspect about three miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry and transported him to the El Centro Processing Center for immigration and criminal history screening.

After performing a check of the man caught in January, border patrol agents determined that 33-year-old man had also been placed on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List and on the No-Fly list. Border patrol agents also found the suspect was carrying a cell phone sim card hidden underneath the insole of his shoe.
