Afghan on the FBI’s terror watchlist is arrested at the southern border trying to illegally creep into US with a group of migrants – as border agents slam Joe Biden for not extending Title 42

An Afghan national on the FBI’s terror watchlist has been captured trying to sneak into the US at the southern border near San Digeo – as border patrol agents continue to slam Joe Biden for letting Title 42 expire.

Multiple officials in the region have confirmed the arrest, as the FBI has begun an investigation on the attempt, where he tried to get in with a group of migrants near the town of Otay Mesa.

Border Patrol agents discovered the Afghan national via a fingerprint scan that connected him to a terrorist screening database.

The suspect crossed the border just one day before the Biden administration allowed Title 42 to end.

Title 42 was activated by the Trump administration to stem the spread of COVID-19. It is a public health measure that allows border authorities to immediately expel arrivals before they could even claim asylum.

Congressman Darrell Issa – who represents Otay Mesa in Washington – slammed President Biden upon hearing of the arrest.

‘Biden’s open borders aren’t just a gateway to five million illegals, record human and child trafficking and the deadliest drug crisis in our history,’ he said.

Issa has confirmed with local CBP representatives the arrest was made, according to Fox News.

‘Biden’s reckless policy is also an open invitation to even the most wanted terrorists in the world to come to America. They know they’ll never have to leave. The nation knows what’s going on and this president has only begun to be held accountable for what he has done.’ has reached out to Border Patrol for further comment.

Title 42 expired at midnight eastern time Thursday.

The Biden administration rushed through new restrictions, effectively restoring Trump’s ‘transit ban,’ which allows for the deportation of arrivals who did not seek asylum in countries through which they traveled.

Migrants can legally present themselves at the border if they used a mobile app, CBP One, to register in advance.

But there were snags. An eleventh-hour legal challenge blocked plans to more quickly release migrants from Border Patrol detention.

The quick drop in numbers will help alleviate pressure on detention facilities that were running way beyond capacity.

Almost 300 newly arrived migrants were released by officials in Yuma, Arizona, on Friday, illustrating how border cities are struggling to cope with a huge surge in arrivals in the past week.

On Thursday, the mayor of Yuma announced that CBP was planning releases in the city of migrants who had not undergone full processing, although he insisted they had been ‘vetted.’

And on Friday afternoon, three white buses with blacked-out windows pulled into the Yuma Public Safety Training Facility close to the city’s airport.

The location was a closely held secret, but was on hand to witness the release. A briefing document said 141 were being freed.

Streams of people could be seen climbing out of the buses and being directed to a shaded holding area, where there was at least some shelter from 96F temperatures.

From there, it is understood they will be put on buses to take them to Phoenix.

It followed a similar release of about 140 people at a separate location in Yuma and at nearby San Luis in the morning.

Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines said the process was an admission that federal authorities simply could not cope.

‘This is decompressing and the federal govt is relying on the local and state government to do its job,’ he said.

‘It’s another failure of the Biden Administration to manage a problem they created with their open border policy.’
