Two undocumented terrorist suspects wanted by the FBI have been detained. In a statement on Monday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed two illegal immigrants from Yemen who were on the FBI’s terror watchlist and no-fly list are in custody after they were apprehended while illegally crossing the border near California ports of entry.
Agents from the El Centro Station arrested one of the suspects in March. During an interview on Monday, California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa stressed the 26-year-old terrorist suspect is a high value target.
“We have always been just one slip up away from another 9/11,” he stated. “The kind of disaster that happened on 9/11 can be done again with a truck load of fertilizer…can be done again with a stolen aircraft.”
