ICE Detains Eight Linked to ISIS-K After Illegal US Entry

On Tuesday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement took into custody eight men from Tajikistan who are suspected of having connections to the dangerous terrorist organization ISIS-K. These individuals had reportedly entered the United States illegally by crossing the border with Mexico and had been apprehended and then released by Border Patrol. However, they were later apprehended in operations set up to catch individuals deemed potential threats to national security, including those with suspected ties to ISIS.

The arrests took place in major cities such as Philadelphia, New York, and Los Angeles over the weekend. Following the arrests, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI issued a joint statement emphasizing that the actions were coordinated and undertaken in close partnership with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces. The detained individuals are currently in ICE custody as they await legal proceedings for their removal from the country.

Although the arrested men have not been charged with terrorism-related offenses, they are still being held in U.S. custody. The agencies highlighted that the United States is currently facing an elevated threat environment, and they are working tirelessly with their partners to identify, investigate, and thwart potential threats to national security.

Despite the lessened influence of ISIS in the Middle East in recent years, the organization has been responsible for numerous atrocities globally. This includes an incident where a gunman, who had pledged allegiance to ISIS, carried out a horrific attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, resulting in the deaths of over four dozen individuals.

In sum, the detention of these individuals underscores the ongoing efforts of U.S. law enforcement and national security agencies to combat terrorist threats and protect the country from potential harm.
