Border Patrol scrubs press release announcing arrests of Yemeni nationals on terror watch list

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol this week scrubbed from its website a press release detailing the agency’s capture of two Yemeni nationals who are on the FBI’s terrorism watch list. 

The original press release, which was available as late as about 9 p.m. Monday, announced CBP’s apprehension of “two Yemeni men within the last 2 months that were identified on a terrorism watch list.”

One individual was arrested in late January while attempting to illegally enter the country. The other was apprehended in late March. In addition to being on terror watch lists, both men were on the U.S. No-Fly List, CBP also said.

Yet by Tuesday afternoon, the press had disappeared from the CBP’s website. A visit to the press release’s URL now simply displays the message: “You are not authorized to access this page.”

Reached via phone on Tuesday, an official in the CBP’s media relations office directed Just the News to send an email inquiry. That email was not immediately returned. 

Both arrests occurred at the El Centro border station in Southern California, the press release said.
