'The Five': ISIS-linked migrants cross Biden's open border


'The Five' co-hosts react to ICE arresting eight migrants with suspected ISIS ties amid growing terror threat fears.

A concerning new report from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General concluded that DHS has not been effectively screening and vetting non-citizens and asylum seekers entering the United States.

The report, obtained by Fox News' Bill Melugin, showed that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents can not access all federal data to complete thorough screening and vetting of those seeking entry into the U.S.

The report stated that without capabilities to effectively screen and vet non-citizens, CBP is unable to conduct complete screening and vetting of all non-citizen travelers at air and land ports of entry.

Additionally, the inspector general's office said that without a dedicated technology capability and resources to conduct interim screenings, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may not promptly identify asylum seekers with derogatory information who remain in the country for extended periods of time while awaiting an asylum decision.

"DHS will remain at risk of admitting dangerous persons into the country or enabling asylum seekers who may pose significant threats to public safety and national security to continue to reside in the United States, until these challenges are addressed," the report read.

In response to the report, DHS agreed with all five recommendations the Office of Inspector General made to begin trying to fix the problem.

The recommendations included fixing data access restrictions, developing new policies for checking names, updating technology, updating screening requirements for certain individuals and working to automate security checks for asylum applicants.

This report comes as concerns over border security are on the rise after eight Tajikistan nationals with ties to ISIS were busted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in conjunction with the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Force in three major cities recently. The individuals were arrested in New York City, Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

Last week, FBI Director Christopher Wray told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee that there is an increasing concern of a potential coordinated attack in the U.S., similar to the Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISIS-K) attack in March at a concert hall in Russia.

Wray told members of the subcommittee that when he met with them last year, he walked them through how the U.S. was already in a heightened threat environment, and since then, threats from foreign terrorists have risen to another level.

"Just in the time that I've been FBI director, we've disrupted multiple terrorist attacks and cities and communities around the country. We need funding to continue protecting America from terrorism," Wray previously said.

Fox News Digital's Greg Wehner contributed to this report.

Illegal aliens also have entered under every President in the last 60 years, at least.

Now that has been acknowledged, what are we to make of Joe Biden's disastrous handling of the border---about which he claimed "There is no crisis" for years?

And for how much longer will the Biden sycophants continue to sing Biden's praises while completely ignoring his failures?

Can the sycophants even bring themselves to acknowledge that Biden's latest EO's are nothing more than election-year crap?

America, if you like our porous border and wish to see yet more aliens entering illegally, by all means vote for Biden.

Just remember that you get what (and who) you vote for!

Instead of feeding, clothing, housing, providing medical care for, and educating aliens, we should spend that money on preventing illegal aliens and deporting those here illegally.

No, non-MAGAs see it as ignorant. The United States now treats immigrants and especially legal refugees according to both US and international laws and treaties with as much humanity as possible. Unlike Trump, the current administration is merely adhering to current US law. The administration has agreed with Congressional Republicans on a reform plan that Trump axed.

And you expect to be taken seriously with that childish remark.

Too bad the illegals don't treat others humanly as possible.

Unlike Trump, the current administration is merely adhering to current US law. 

if that were true then we wouldn't have millions of illegals crossing the border.  

The administration has agreed with Congressional Republicans on a reform plan that Trump axed.

Traitor Joe fucked all this up the day he took office.  Reform can't happen with an open border.  And no, Traitor Joe's most current EO to secure the border is 3 years too late. 

Quit making pathetic excuses

Do you believe that taxpayer dollars should go towards housing, clothing, feeding, educating, and providing medical care for aliens?

Do you believe aliens ought to be self-supporting?

If so, WHY???

I do not know much about the rights of aliens from other planets but according to both US and international laws and treaties the United States is legally obligated to adhere to all humans in the United States are accorded human rights.

I think that if they can afford to travel here, they can afford to sustain themselves while here.

What human rights and of course who pays for them?  Should we be giving them more than we give some of our own citizens?

Well, see, here's how it is. Biden will simply pluck a few billion dollars off the taxpayer money tree to pay for what we have no obligation to pay for.

It's the Democratic way!

   "United States is legally obligated to adhere to all humans in the United States are accorded human rights."

So, citizens must work so aliens can freeload?
