Wiretap recordings from the investigation revealed that one of the arrested individuals was discussing explosives, raising concerns about potential terrorist activities on U.S. soil, sources disclosed.

FBI Director, Christopher Wray, expressed concerns about the growing threat of coordinated ISIS attacks in the homeland, drawing parallels to recent ISIS-K attacks in the Middle East.

The Islamic State Khorasan (ISIS-K), an extreme offshoot of the Islamic State militant group, has been previously focused on targeting Russia but has been cautioned by Western leaders for its capability to launch attacks in Europe and the United States.

Furthermore, the FBI has been investigating a human smuggling operation at the southern border with links to ISIS-affiliated groups, raising alarms about the potential infiltration of individuals with terror ties into the country.

Notably, there has been a marked increase in the number of migrants entering the southern border with suspected terror connections in recent years, prompting concerns about national security.

The federal authorities have inadvertently released individuals into the country with known or suspected terror ties, including a member of a U.S.-designated foreign terror group and a confirmed member of al Shabaab.

In response to these security threats, the Biden regime has recently implemented new border policies to address the escalating number of illegal border crossings.

Despite these measures, the flow of migrants continues, with thousands of illegal crossings reported over the weekend, underscoring the ongoing challenges at the southern border.
