Hundreds of thousands of migrants, including several thousand "special interest aliens," have been allowed into the U.S. through the Biden administration's CBP One app.
The app allows migrants to schedule appointments at the southern border to be released into the country.

“New records released to the Center for Immigration Studies last week as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit reveal that the Biden administration has been authorizing thousands of [special interest aliens] for escorted entries through land ports along the border since at least May 2021, using ‘CBP One’ online interfaces such as a mobile phone app,” the Center for Immigration Studies' Todd Bensman reported.
"Using this program, the administration has authorized the paroles into the country of some 7,332 [special interest aliens] from 24 of the roughly 35-40 U.S.-designated countries, including smatterings from Iran, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan," it added.

"According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection report, a total of 80 migrants who are listed in the Terrorist Screening Database have been apprehended after entering the United States along the southwest border between ports of entry this fiscal year," Breitbart News reported.
"Two more were apprehended after crossing the northern border with Canada," it continued.
Last month, border patrol agents encountered 18 migrants attempting to cross the southern border who are on the terror watch list. Those are just the ones we know about.

"Meanwhile, there were 18 encounters of people on the terror watch list between ports of entry at the southern border, taking the total for FY 23 up to 169 — a new record and more than the last six fiscal years combined," Fox News reported from September's numbers.
The growing concern comes as war in Israel has led to increased calls from terrorist groups to attack the U.S.
Both the overall number of migrants and the growth in migrant crossings from the terror watch list are a problematic national security threat for the nation.
The statistics also only include migrants apprehended at the border, not including an unknown number of people who have entered the country without encountering Border Patrol.
The Biden administration now has another reason to change its response at the border at terror concerns reveal the need for increased security.
