(RepublicanPress.org) – It’s no secret that President Joe Biden’s administration has received backlash from both sides of the aisle over its immigration policies. Republicans have been particularly worried about the danger of criminals crossing the border unchecked. Now, it appears authorities have caught a possible terrorist who recently came across the border.
On Monday, December 20, Yuma, Arizona sector’s chief patrol agent Chris T. Clem announced US Customs and Border Protection agents captured and detained a potential terrorist who illegally crossed the Mexican border the previous Thursday. Chief Clem identified the suspect as a 21-year-old Saudi Arabian migrant linked to several Yemeni persons of interest.
The announcement included three photographs of the subject. One of them showed a patch on the unidentified man’s left shoulder bearing the emblem for Central Oneida County’s Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Curiously, Oneida County is located about 2,528 miles away, in New York.

Fox News spoke with the head of Oneida County’s ambulance corps early this week. He confirmed the suspect had no connection the organization.
Armed with this information, one has to wonder if any other possible terrorists or national security risks have worked their way across the border already.
