    TX. Border Patrol Agents Continue Arrests of Bangladeshi Nationals

    Laredo Sector Border Patrol Agents Continue Arrests of Bangladeshi Nationals

    Release Date:
    April 13, 2018

    LAREDO, Texas – April 12, 2018, Border Patrol agents in Laredo, Texas arrested an illegal alien from the country of Bangladesh. The subject was encountered after illegally crossing the Rio Grande River in south Laredo. The Laredo Sector Border Patrol continues to have the highest apprehension of Bangladeshi Nationals compared to other Border Patrol Sectors. Currently, the Laredo Sector Border Patrol has apprehended 171 Bangladeshi Nationals since the start of fiscal year 2018.

    “It goes to show that our agents are arresting people from all over the world on a daily basis. Their intentions for entering the country illegally can only be determined after they have been arrested,” said Laredo Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Gabriel Acosta.

    To report suspicious activity such as alien and/or drug smuggling, contact the Laredo Sector Border Patrol toll free telephone number at 1-800-343-1994. All people apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure their criminal histories are positively identified.



    U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

    So can we assume these folks are flying into Mexico and then attempting to sneak across our border? I don't know how the airports operate in Mexico and other South American countries, but I'm assuming those countries are not as stringent on checking passengers exiting aircraft. Maybe they are arriving in South American by ship? Anyone know?

    Why the Illegal Alien Pipeline from Bangladesh to Texas is a Warning Sign

    April 16, 2018
    Matt O'Brien

    For years, experts have been expressing their fears about terrorists sneaking across our border with Mexico. In 2012, the House Homeland Security Committee published a report noting that terrorists will inevitably exploit our porous southern border. In its January 2017 Public Safety Threat Overview the Texas Department of Public Safety raised the very same concerns.

    However, open-borders advocates deride the notion that terrorists might exploit the ever-present chaos on the southern border as foolish. They claim that since – to date – there have been no terrorist attacks carried out in the U.S. by illegal entrants who crossed the southern border, the threat is low. But data recently released by the Department of Homeland Security indicates that Islamic terror groups may have finally become aware of just how porous our southern border really is.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has announced that the Laredo Border Patrol Sector is, for the second year running, the number one crossing point for Bangladeshi nationals attempting to enter the U.S. Illegally. Since the start of fiscal year 2018, the Laredo Sector has apprehended approximately 171 Bangladesh citizens. And KGNS, Texas, reports that CBP arrested nearly 180 Bangladeshis in the Laredo Sector during fiscal year 2017. Laredo seems to be emerging as the epicenter of a new smuggling route that brings South Asian and Afghan migrants to the United States via Latin America.

    Aside from the obvious fact that Bangladesh is a long way from Mexico – sandwiched between Bhutan and India – why is this noteworthy? There are two reasons:

    *The Islamic State (ISIS), Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), and a number of other extremely violent terrorist groups, are active and recruiting members in Bangladesh. Therefore, there is a strong possibility that among the Bangladeshis attempting to cross the border illegally, some could have ties to terror groups.
    *If individuals from Bangladesh are making it to Latin American and sneaking into the United States over the border with Mexico, then other individuals from countries with significant terrorism problems are likely doing the same thing.

    As FAIR has repeatedly noted, we are living in an age where national security and immigration are intimately and inextricably intertwined. After losing most of its physical territory, ISIS is looking to regroup and continue its operations. Al-Qaeda is hoping to regain its position as the world’s pre-eminent jihadist terror organization. And the fastest route to either of those goals is a dramatic, large-scale terror attack in the United States, which is much easier to plan and carry out once a terrorist is inside the U.S.

    It’s time for America to get serious about hardening our porous southern border against exploitation by terrorists. We need to build President Trump’s border wall. And we need to build it quickly, before our border begins to look like Europe’s, awash in Middle Eastern “refugees” who are impossible to thoroughly vet.

    Border Patrol Agents Sound Alarm on Pathway from Bangladesh to U.S. Border

    by BOB PRICE
    19 Apr 2018

    Border Patrol agents in the Laredo Sector arrested more than 190 Bangladeshi nationals who illegally crossed the border from Mexico into Texas since October 1, 2017. This number of illegal border crossers from a country that many call a hotbed of terrorism is more than were arrested in all of Fiscal Year 2017, officials told Breitbart Texas on Thursday.

    “When we talk about the different groups that are crossing into an area, what we’re trying to draw attention to is a more comprehensive look at our threat picture,” Acting Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens told Breitbart Texas during a recent phone interview. “We need to stay away from just focusing on the family units and Unaccompanied Alien Children that are coming from Central America and Mexico. What the men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol are dealing with on a daily basis is so much more complex than that.”

    Border Patrol agents in the sector Owens commands arrested 191 Bangladeshi nationals who illegally crossed the border from Mexico into South Texas since the beginning of Fiscal Year 2018 in October, according to information provided to Breitbart Texas by Laredo Sector officials. During the entire FY 2017, Laredo Sector agents arrested only 181 Bangladeshi nationals, Chief Owens stated. During FY 2016, there was only one Bangladeshi arrested in the Laredo sector.

    “You have to look not only at the numbers of folks coming across in our Area of Responsibility (AOR),” Owens explained, “but also, who they are and where they’re from because that very much affects how we meet the threat.”

    “When you have countries like Bangladesh that have had potential ties to terrorism in the past — well, these folks that are coming from that country, what is their intent when they are crossing into the United States illegally?” the sector chief asked. “What is their ultimate destination? What is their goal?”

    Bangladesh has been described by many as a hotbed of terrorist activity. In March 2017, the British government issued a travel advisory for Bangladesh to its citizens warning of potential terror attacks. The warning cited several incidents of terrorist activity in the months leading up to the travel advisory’s issuance.

    In 2016, CNN and The Economist spotlighted terrorist activity in Bangladesh. And, in February 2017, the Tony Blair’s Institute for Global Change wrote, “Bangladesh is alternately heralded as a beacon of tolerance and secularism in the Muslim-majority world or a hotbed of Islamist militancy.”

    Border Patrol Agent Hector Garza, in his capacity as president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455, told Breitbart Texas the apprehension of these Bangladeshi nationals in the Laredo sector shows there is a “clear pipeline” from countries that are home to terrorists through Mexico and into the U.S.

    “We have been lucky to catch these groups but there is no telling how many other people from countries that sponsor terrorism could be utilizing that same pipeline,” Agent Garza stated.

    Laredo Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Gabriel Acosta told Breitbart Texas on Thursday that the Bangladeshi nationals do not pick their point of entry into the U.S. “That is determined by the transnational criminal organization (TCO) that works with the smugglers from the country of origin, into South America, up through Central America, and into Mexico,” Acosta explained. “They are paying upward of $27,000 each to be smuggled into the U.S.”

    Acosta said the Bangladeshis are not trying to be sneaky in crossing the border nor are they trying to avoid detection and arrest. “They have been coached by the TCO on what to say and how to make a ‘credible fear’ claim,” he stated.

    Acosta said the Bangladeshis typically begin their journey from their home country to Brazil. From there, they utilize nearly any form of transportation available. Those include planes, trains, boats, horses, and even walking, he explained. Some of the people being smuggled pay their fee upfront while others arrive in the U.S. in debt and have to work off the fees after they arrive at their destination.

    Of the 191 Bangladeshi’s captured during the first half of FY 2018, 100 percent were males, mostly between the ages of 18-35, Acosta stated.

    FBI agents with the Joint Terrorism Task Force are notified each time a group of Bangladeshis are arrested, he explained. The agents conduct a throughout background check and biometric scan. The agents also check the names against the terrorist watch list.

    Acosta said a “small number” of these checks resulted in finding “derogatory information.” He said this is most often an association with someone who is already designated as a person of interest.

    Chief Owens said there have been incidents where some of the adult Bangladeshi males have attempted to present themselves as minors. “We have had incidents where some would attempt to present themselves as juveniles, or represent themselves as family units when in fact there is no blood relationship,” Owens stated. “The interviewers will try and bear that out as to whether or not it’s true.”

    “Everybody that we encounter will get turned over to ICE ERO (Enforcement and Removal Operations),” Owens explained. “From there, their removal proceedings are handled by that agency after a hearing.”

    Assistant Chief Acosta explained further. “Because of the ‘credible fear’ law and the coaching received by the Bangladeshis from the TCOs, ERO officers will issue a notice to appear for a future immigration hearing. “In many cases, we will never see them again,” he said.

    The Laredo Sector chief said these Bangladeshis are a great example of why the U.S. needs to look differently at the border.

    “For us, its important that when folks are looking at border security as an issue, that we look at the threat in a holistic fashion,” Owens explained. “Don’t just focus on the numbers of people coming across. You have to also look at what that makeup is and also who is responsible. Because that actually goes to the threat that not only exists along the border but into the interior as well.”

    “You may not have 50,000 people crossing every single month,” Cheif Owens concluded, “but those that are crossing may pose a very significant threat in their own right.”
