Fox 11 News reporter Gigi Graciette tweeted earlier on Tuesday that sources are telling her that three individuals, attempting to enter California through Mexico illegally, are on the terrorist watch list. Breitbart News previously reported that government sources are saying that an uptick in border crossings by people from countries with terrorist ties has occurred since a surge of illegal immigrants from Central America started entering the United States in the past few weeks.
A team of American independent security contractors told Breitbart News that six individuals from Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemen were recently picked up by U.S. border patrol near Laredo, Texas with 60,000 Iraqi dinars ($51.00) apiece on each one.
