Congressional committee opens probe into Biden’s DHS as it releases more suspected terrorists at the border
06/19/2024 // Belle Carter // Views

The House Homeland Security Committee, established nearly two decades ago to protect Americans from terrorist attacks, recently launched a probe into the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under the Biden administration after the agency reportedly released suspected terrorists at the southwest border.

U.S. Border Patrol has encountered at least 351 illegal aliens on the Terrorist Screening Data Set entering the country between ports of entry since President Joe Biden assumed the presidency. On May 3, two Jordanian nationals attempted to breach Marine Corps Base Quantico, located about 35 miles south of Washington D.C. The men, who posed as Amazon delivery drivers and drove a truck to the main gate and ignored the guards' orders to stop when they could not provide the required credentials, were among the illegals released at the border.

It is in this connection that the congressional committee started the investigation by demanding action from administration officials, including DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and FBI Director Christopher Wray. The committee sent a letter to these officials, including Chairman Mark Green of Tennessee, to request documents and other information to aid in their probe. This includes communications such as text messages and emails between DHS, the Department of Defense and the Federal Bureau of Investigation related to the incident at Marine Corps installation near Triangle, Virginia.

The lawmakers also asked for documents identifying the names and countries of origin of the truck's occupants and their current alien files, as well as all derogatory information in the Terrorist Screening Data Set associated with any individual who attempted to breach the military compound.

Meanwhile, reports came out saying that top brass at the said military base didn't alert rank-and-file personnel of an attempted breach by the two Jordanians until two weeks after it happened.

"After I [raised the alarm], I had people who work at Quantico messaging me saying, 'Holy f—k, when did this happen?'" Matt Strickland, who had first flagged the incident to a local news site, told the New York Post. "Two weeks after it happened Quantico finally put an email out to employees on base letting them know. Citizens have a right to know what is going on in their backyard."

Both men are now in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.

The committee members referenced recent congressional testimony by FBI Director Christopher Wray, who warned that "a wide array of very dangerous threats" emanate from the border, necessitating "much greater vigilance" to protect the country. They argued that DHS's relaxed vetting standards, which align with Biden's aim to increase border admissions, have created an environment that can be exploited by individuals seeking to undermine the United States.

Foiled incursions could be a "dry run" for future terror attacks

According to Strickland, the foiled incursion could be a dry run for a future terror attack and said his experience in the forces has taught him that terror threats are very real. "I spent years in both Iraq and Afghanistan, so I know first-hand, that it is not just people that want to make a better life for themselves crossing the border," he said. "In all my time downrange, every attack that happened, especially with VBEDs [vehicle-borne explosive devices], there was always a dry run, always."

The secrecy according to him was done for political purposes. "The authorities don’t want all the information out there because the incompetent government we have are the ones that allowed these people to be in America in the first place. We are in an election year, so they don't want negative stories like that out there," he said.

Meanwhile, a former federal firearms instructor who worked at Marine Corps Base Quantico, also thinks that the strange arrest of two Jordanian nationals in a box truck at the base may have been a "dry run" to test security outside the facility ahead of a terror attack.

"Driving the box truck was a dry run for driving a box truck that was not going to be empty the second time," said Dave Katz, a former Drug Enforcement Administration agent and the CEO and founder of Global Security Group. "Can I prove that? No. But it's like the 9/11 hijackers trying to get aboard planes with box cutters on other occasions prior to actually perpetrating the act."

The two men had no weapons and no prior criminal records which is why authorities had to release them because there was no evidence that they had a terror-related motive. Acting ICE Director Patrick Lechleitner told Fox News Digital previously that the two were facing removal proceedings. However, they have not been publicly identified.
