White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended Tuesday the strength of the Southern border after two suspected terrorists were apprehended after crossing into the United States through Mexico.
“First let me convey that these sets of incidents are very uncommon,” Psaki said when asked by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy about whether President Joe Biden was keeping the border safe.
Customs and Border Protection announced Monday that two Yemeni men were arrested in separate incidents in January and May. They were on a government watchlist for terrorism suspects and on a “no-fly” list.
Republicans have cited the arrest of terrorists at the border as a sign that Biden’s border policies are failing, as more individuals are crossing the border illegally.
