Biden’s Open Border Enabled Surveillance by Illegal Aliens

When illegal aliens roam freely without identification, Americans are in jeopardy.

Foreign nationals without identification and illegal aliens are turning up at US military bases more frequently. In one recent instance, foreign nationals who had no identification posed a threat to a special operations officer and his family. Why is this trend becoming increasingly a problem for America’s national security? It doesn’t take the brains of a Jeopardy grand champion to figure it out. When our borders are wide open, all manner of dangerous criminals, terrorists, and foreign agents are free to roam.

Illegal Aliens Threaten US Military Bases and Personnel

Since Joe Biden has been in office, there has been a spate of attempted break-ins at US military bases and threats against US military personnel. Most recently, on May 3, at 8:15 p.m., a US Army Special Operations Command colonel found a Chechen man on his property taking photographs of his children. There was a confrontation, and the Army officer shot the trespasser dead. The incident occurred in Carthage, NC, close to Ft. Liberty (formerly Ft. Bragg), the home of the US Special Operations Command.

Local authorities eventually identified the deceased as Ramzan Daraev, a 35-year-old from Chicago. The Moore County Sheriff’s Office handling the case said Daraev “was in the area working as a subcontractor for Utilities One…According to a news release, a 911 caller reported someone was taking photographs and ‘had become aggressive toward another resident outside their home,'” The Fayetteville Observer reported. Another Chechen man, Dzhankutov Adsalan, was in a vehicle some distance from the incident and was questioned by the authorities and let go. Daraev had no identification, and he wasn’t wearing anything with a logo that might indicate he was an employee of Utilities One. Adsalan spoke little English, and an FBI linguist was made available to translate into Russian. Only after investigators contacted his family members was Daraev officially identified.

Other than providing the interpreter, the FBI has allowed local authorities to handle the ensuing investigation. Among the mysteries surrounding the incident are: why did the Utilities One contract employees not have any identification, only two cell phones with Russian contacts, and camera equipment? If the reports are accurate, why was Daraev on the Army officer’s property taking photos of his children? Was this particular special operations colonel targeted for some reason? Had the colonel had an occasion in the past to work with or train Ukrainians? Was this a pre-attack surveillance operation? Why is the FBI not taking charge of this incident? These are just a few questions that come to mind. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned the US there would be consequences for the Western nations aiding Ukraine. Before going too far down the conspiracy theory road, at a minimum it is safe to say this incident raises concerns.

“US Special Operations soldiers around the country have experienced strange interactions in recent years that they say involve suspicious surveillance of them and their families. Many believe that US military bases have become an increasing target of foreign probes,” Fox News reported. Special operation troops aren’t the only US service members encountering suspicious events. On the same day as the incident in North Carolina, two Jordanian illegal aliens in a box truck claiming to be Amazon contract drivers attempted to breach the gate at the Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Virginia. Following the arrest of the two gatecrashers, investigations into the incident revealed, as Fox News reported:

“One of the individuals was admitted into the country by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Sept. 11, 2022, as an F-1 nonimmigrant student with authorization to stay in the US while he was a student. The student’s status was set to terminate on Jan. 14, 2023. The second Jordanian was arrested on April 8, 2024, near San Ysidro, California after he entered the US illegally from Mexico, according to ICE. After being arrested, he was ordered to appear before an immigration judge on April 9, and the noncitizen was released on his own recognizance.”

The second Jordanian was a no-show at the April 9, immigration hearing. Who would have guessed? Opinions vary on what the attempted illegal entry into Quantico might portend. A plausible explanation is that the illegals were making a dry run to test the defenses as a prelude to attempting a more hostile action. Nonetheless, the incident did not appear to be an innocent mistake.

Border Security Is National Security

Biden’s lack of border security and casual treatment of potential terrorists making their way unimpeded into our cities should be a klaxon to take immediate action to seal the open portal into the US. Chinese nationals who have entered the US illegally are among the most prevalent of possible troublemakers. “Isolated encounters with Chinese nationals attempting to surveil US military installations are not new. Reports reveal more than 100 such incursions have taken place over the last few years,” Liberty Nation reported. The fact is that the Biden administration’s border policies have left Americans at risk.

Incidents like those at the Marine Corps Base at Quantico and the special operations colonel’s home will be more frequent. The latest estimates are more than 24,000 Chinese have entered the US illegally in 2024. The House Committee on Homeland Security just released disturbing statistics. Since the Biden administration took office, “438,800 Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans have been mass paroled under an administration program. Furthermore, 362 aliens on the terrorist watchlist have been caught crossing our Southwest border illegally,” the Committee report stated.

Those are just the ones who have been apprehended. Agents of foreign governments and would-be terrorists don’t want to be caught. At last count, there were roughly 1.7 million gotaways in the US. These are illegal aliens who made it past the CBP and could be in a neighborhood near you. It appears military bases are targets for intelligence gathering. The question is, for what purpose?
