Rep. John Katko: People on the Terror Watch List Caught Coming Across the Border in Last Few Days

By Melanie Arter | CNS News March 15, 2021 |

(CNSNews.com) – A delegation of Republican lawmakers toured an immigration detention facility in El Paso, Texas, on Monday, and they found that people who were on the terrorist watch list were being housed at the facility.

“People they’ve caught in the last few days over there in sector three or monument three have been on the terror watch list. Individuals that they have on the watch list for terrorism are now starting to exploit the southern border,” said Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.), who serves on the Homeland Security Committee.

“We need to wake up,” he said.

Katko served as a federal crime prosecutor in the 90s and was charged with going at the drug cartels.

“I had a fundamental understanding then, and I do now that the cartels know when to exploit that southern border, and they are doing it now masterfully. They are doing it, because President Biden rolled back a lot of the previous administrative orders that were working,” he said.

The congressman criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for blaming the Trump administration for the increase in illegal border crossings.

“One of the perhaps most reprehensible things I’ve heard in a long time is Nancy Pelosi and some in the administration saying that this is caused by a pent-up demand from the previous administration. There is always a pent-up demand for crime. Crossing the border illegally is illegal, and so we shouldn’t accommodate that pent-up demand, and they seem to be signaling that we should,” he said.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Monday that there were more Haitians in the facility than any other nationality that he saw.

“When you talk about what’s coming across, I just left a few Border agents, and I asked them, ‘who are the individuals you’re catching?’ Yeah, they are from Central America, but you know who else? Iran, Yemen, Sri Lanka. As I walked through the facility, there are more Haitians than any other nationality I saw. Why were they coming now? You asked the Border agents,” McCarthy said.

“They were shocked themselves, because they’re being released into the country. When I talk to the doctor to see when they’re being tested for COVID – when they get out. More than 10% are testing positive, but you’re being stored together. At a time when the president will keep our country closed when maybe we have hope for the 4th of July to get together just with our family, how much spread of COVID is he creating every single day by his policies along this border,” he said.

Katko said that the trip confirmed for him that “there is indeed disorder at the border by executive order.”

The congressman said that the detention facility they visited cost $48 million to build.

“They are spending tens of thousands of dollars a day just to feed this surge. They’re spending tens of thousand dollars more per day to clothe them and to transfer them. All this money is being taken apart away from the things we’re doing here in the country that can benefit our citizens,” Katko said.

“It is so bad from a financial standpoint for Border Patrol that, as Kevin alluded to, they are taking money from future payments down the road later in the year of Border Patrol salaries and Border Patrol pensions just to try and pay for the surge that’s going on right now that was caused by this president. They are hoping for a supplemental, but if that supplemental doesn’t come, I don’t know how the heck we are going to pay these guys,” he said.
