South Dakota Gov. Noem: 'We’re Not Accepting Illegal Immigrants'
'We do not know who they are'
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem warned the Biden administration that any illegal immigrants they send are “not going to find a place here in South Dakota.”
During an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” Noem said:
“[W]hat I have determined by watching the actions of this president is that he is making America unsafe."
"These are people that are crossing our border illegally."
"We do not know who they are."
"Multiple news sources have told us that we have people on the terrorist watch list that are getting into this country this way," she added.
"They’re not going to find a place here in South Dakota,” Noem asserted.
In March, US authorities arrested four people attempting to illegally cross the Southern Border from Mexico whose names match the FBI's Terrorist Screening Database.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency confirmed the arrests to Congress on Tuesday, a congressional aide reportedly told Axios.
The terror suspects' names were not released, but the source said three were from Yemen, and the fourth was from Serbia.
As Neon Nettle reported earleir this month:
In March alone, Border officials encountered 172,000 migrants at the border, a 71 percent increase from February.
The data is just the latest indicator of the extent of the crisis at the southern border, but Biden officials are trying to blame the Trump administration.
The majority of the 172,000 migrants encountered were single adults, the data shows.
The number also included 18,890 unaccompanied children -- a staggering 100 percent increase from the already high numbers encountered in February and the highest number recorded.
"CBP has experienced an increase in encounters and arrests," Acting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Troy Miller said in a statement.
"This is not new. Encounters have continued to increase since April 2020, and our past experiences have helped us be better prepared for the challenges we face this year."
