Remember after the attacks by Al Qaeda terrorists on 9-11 when one of the first questions Americans asked was, “How did these terrorists get into America?”
Remember when President Trump warned about the serious repercussions Americans would suffer if we didn’t secure our southern border and how the Democrats called him cruel and inhumane when he moved forward with his plans to build a wall to protect Americans?
Now, Americans are asking, “How many more foreigners will Joe Biden and the Democrat Party allow to cross our southern border and slip into America before we have another 9-11 or worse?”
This morning, Fox News reported that an ILLEGAL ALIEN from Iran (a terrorist nation) has been apprehended by Texas law enforcement officers after he crossed the border from Mexico into Texas. But that’s not all—he’s actually on the FBI’s TERROR WATCH LIST!
Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) arrested 29-year-old Alireza Heidari last week after a traffic stop involving a human smuggler at the border in Val Verde County, Texas, as part of Operation Lone Star.

Heidari was being smuggled in the vehicle along with four other illegal immigrants. He was located in the trunk. Fox is told that Heidari was handed over to Border Patrol custody and later determined to be a match of the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB)
National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd noted that it was Texas DPS, not Border Patrol, that ultimately apprehended Heidari.
“If not for the work of Governor Abbott and Texas DPS, Alireza Heidari would be at large on our streets today and looking to do harm to the US and our fellow citizens,” Judd said. “Heidari entered the country illegally and evaded apprehension by the Border Patrol. It fell to Texas DPS to do our job because [President] Biden continues to play politics with the safety and security of our children, friends, and neighbors. What Biden is doing is dangerous, and the capture of Heidari by a non-federal law enforcement agency is the most recent proof.”
The FBI’s TSDB contains information about the identities of those who are “reasonably suspected” of being involved in terrorism or related activities. There were 17 people stopped by Border Patrol in December alone whose names matched on the list. That brings the total of individuals arrested at the southern border between ports of entry to 38 since October.
There were 98 terror watch list arrests in FY22, 15 in FY21, and just three in FY 20 at the southern border caught between ports of entry.
Fox reached out to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Thursday and multiple times since. Only on Tuesday did DHS refer Fox to the FBI, which declined to comment. The FBI’s website says it does not confirm anyone’s status on the watch list.
In December, lawmakers were calling for the firing of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over his gross mishandling of the border crisis created by Joe Biden and backed by the Democrat Party. Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) accused Mayorkas of being a joke in America and around the world.
The Western States Sheriffs Association, representing sheriffs from 17 states, called for the firing of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for failing to secure the southern border. Former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan agreed, telling Americans to “Wake up!”

In February 2021, dozens of House Republicans wrote a letter to Mayorkas calling on him to resign, citing a “complete failure” to lead the department – pointing to recent tensions with Border Patrol and the relentless crisis at the southern border.
Here are a few excerpts from the letter that can be read in its entirety below:
“In light of recent reports displaying your failure to execute the primary mission of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to secure our nation from its many threats through your inability and refusal to enforce the immigration laws, we call on you to resign as Secretary of Homeland Security.
“In the recording, you acknowledged those agents are doing tasks outside of their job description and that their job is continually demonized. Additionally, they asserted that they feel no support from their Secretary. You have admitted to making Border Patrol agents’ jobs more difficult, yet do nothing to ameliorate that problem. Instead, you make it exponentially harder for agents to do their job by implementing Biden administration directives that go against their Congressionally-mandated responsibilities.”
“Throughout your year in office, common-sense policies have been rescinded, directly resulting in chaos and disaster at the southern border.”

While we’re they’re at it, why stop with Mayorkas? Why not impeach Joe Biden for allowing this national crisis to unfold? It’s not even debatable anymore that he has failed miserably at his most important job, which is to protect our national security.
