Twice Unleashed: The Migrant on the U.S. Terror Watchlist Who Slipped Through the Cracks!

“Twice Unleashed: The Migrant on the U.S. Terror Watchlist Who Slipped Through the Cracks!”

In a shocking revelation, it has been reported that an Afghan migrant, identified on the U.S. terror watchlist, was released into the United States not once, but twice by border agents12This individual, named Mohammad Kharwin, illegally crossed near San Ysidro, California, in March of 20231.

Kharwin was identified as a member of Hezb-i-Islami (HIG), a group that the U.S. has designated as a terrorist organization1Despite suspicions, a lack of sufficient evidence to confirm his status on the watchlist led to his release1Alarmingly, officials did not notify the FBI or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which allowed Kharwin to seek asylum, work, and travel within the U.S1.

In February 2024, ICE detained Kharwin again1He was later released on $12,000 bail and given freedom within the U.S., with a requirement to appear at a future court hearing1The Department of Homeland Security has stated that Customs and Border Protection did not knowingly release anyone on the terrorist watchlist1.

This incident occurs amid record numbers of migrant crossings into the U.S., with less than 0.1% of all encounters involving individuals on the terrorist watchlist1. NBC News analysis shows a slight decrease in migrants on the terrorist watchlist encountered at U.S. borders under the Biden administration, averaging 0.02%, compared to 0.05% during the Trump administration1.

Since the beginning of the year, Border Patrol has encountered over 366,000 migrants at the southern border1Homeland Security confirmed Kharwin’s arrest Thursday, April 11, marking his third arrest since his illegal entry into the U.S1. Officials emphasize there is currently no evidence he entered the U.S. for a terrorist mission1.

This incident raises serious questions about the effectiveness of the current border control measures and the potential risks associated with the release of individuals on the terror watchlist. It underscores the need for a comprehensive review of the procedures and protocols in place to ensure the safety and security of the nation.
