ICE caught suspected terrorist weeks after Border Patrol release

A suspected terrorist was not arrested until two weeks after he was matched to a terror watch list issued to the United States by Border Patrol agents last month, according to a new report.

According to a memo from a federal source obtained by Fox News, 35-year-old Isardo García-Amado was turned loose on April 18 near Yuma, Ariz., and given a GPS surveillance device instead of being taken into custody.

According to the report, Garcia-Amado was flagged off by the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center on April 21. However, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) did not get the authority to arrest him till May 4.

Colombian citizen García-Amado was arrested two days later in Pinellas County, Fla. It is unclear why it took three days after his release for the FBI to mark García-Amado as a suspected terrorist.

US Customs and Border Protection did not immediately respond to Post’s inquiries as to why García-Amado was released by Border Patrol agents in April. It is common for illegal border-crossers to be placed in alternate-to-detention – including with a GPS monitoring system, where they can theoretically be tracked in the US.

The Department of Homeland Security confirmed García Amado’s arrest to The Post on Tuesday, saying he is “in ICE custody pending the settlement of his immigration case.”

“In the United States, non-citizens faced without authorization undergo a multi-layered screening and vetting,” DHS said in a statement. “Our immigration enforcement priorities are clear: DHS is focused on those who pose a threat to our national security, public safety and border security. When we receive additional abusive information from our law enforcement partners, DHS and our federal allies Take quick action to nab those people.

DHS further claimed that in coordination with federal and local law enforcement, ICE “immediately detained this person” after receiving additional information.

The FBI did not immediately respond to Post’s request for comment.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis reprimanded the administration for the delay in arresting Garcia-Amado, telling Fox News: “The State of Florida has consistently addressed the Biden administration for information about illegal foreign resettlement in Florida, which the federal government has received. has refused to provide.”

“We demand to know why DHS released a suspected terrorist into the United States and allowed him to live freely in Florida for weeks,” the governor continued. “How many more known or suspected terrorists has the Biden administration allowed to enter our country?”
