This comes as Fox News revealed on Tuesday that thousands of these “Special Interest Aliens” from the Middle East and North Africa have been apprehended crossing the border into the US illegally since October of 2021. President Joe Biden’s border policy has been essentially to let everyone in.
Special interest aliens, the outlet reports, “are people from countries identified by the U.S. government as having conditions that promote or protect terrorism or potentially pose some sort of national security threat to the US.”
This includes 6,386 from Afghanistan, 3,153 from Egypt, 659 from Iran, 538 from Syria, 30,830 from Turkey, 1,613 from Pakistan, 164 from Lebanon, 185 from Jordan, 139 from Yemen, 123 from Iraq, 15,594 from Mauritania, and 13,624 from Uzbekistan.
These numbers, which span from October 2021 to October 2023, do not include encounters by CBP’s Office of Field Operations at ports or entry, nor the over 1.5 million “gotaways” that have snuck into the country under the Biden administration.
Fiscal year 2023 also broke the record for the number of encounters with those on the FBI terror watch list, with 151 of these people being encountered entering the country between ports of entry. This number is higher than the previous six years combined.

“In the last two years, CBP has encountered 72,823 “special interest aliens” attempting to enter the US illegally, mostly from Middle Eastern countries that “harbor or favor terrorism” or pose a national security threat to the US. We have no idea who they are because most of their countries of origin don’t share data with us. 151 suspects on the Terror Watch List were also encountered between ports of entry in FY2023 alone, higher than the previous six years combined. Nearly 2 million “gotaways” also evaded CBP and escaped into the interior of America. How many were “special interest aliens” or suspected terrorists? How many Americans will have to die before you live to regret this post?”
Thousands of “special interest aliens” from countries with known terror activities are being arrested by Border Patrol for trying to cross into America illegally.
