According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection report released this week, 78 migrants who appear on the terrorist watchlist known as the Terrorist Screening Dataset (TSDS) have been detained this year.
That’s three times more than the combined total of the past four fiscal years.
Not a single person on the terrorist watchlist was arrested crossing in from Canada.
From Breitbart News:
The TSDS ” is the U.S. government’s database that contains sensitive information on terrorist identities. The TSDS originated as the consolidated terrorist watchlist to house information on known or suspected terrorists (KSTs) but has evolved over the last decade to include additional individuals who represent a potential threat to the United States, including known affiliates of watchlisted individuals,” CBP officials stated. “TSDS watchlisted individuals encountered by the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) after entering the country without inspection may be detained and removed, to the extent possible under CBP policy, or turned over to another government agency for subsequent detention or law enforcement action, as appropriate.”
