Well along those same lines Mr sales you Quote a Washington examiner article that Warns about 98 individuals have who are On the terrorist watch list were Apprehended after crossing the southern Border so do you think this is a threat To the homelander would you acknowledge What percentage of the people that we've Encountered along the border are Represented by this 98. well thank you For the question congresswoman just to Be clear that the source that I cited For those numbers was not a newspaper But rather U.S Customs and Border Protection Um I do think that the dramatic Spike We've seen from zero ksts encountered Several years ago to 98 last year and 69 So far this year is troubling I think Terrorists are aware of gaps in our Border security and they will certainly Try to exploit those gaps I would give You the number since you didn't answer My question it's 0.0044 percent 0.0044 And these individuals were apprehended Isn't that correct Um that is correct congresswoman but I I Think remember Um it was just 19 hijackers who were Able to pull off the 9 11 attacks and That's not relevant to what we're Talking about now we're talking about
