Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.5

Texas Department of Public Safety arrested 29-year-old Alireza Heidari after a traffic stop involving a human smuggler at the border in Val Verde County, Texas. Heidari turned out to be a match on the FBI’s terror watch list. National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said, “Heidari entered the country illegally and evaded apprehension by the Border Patrol. It fell to Texas DPS to do our job because [President] Biden continues to play politics with the safety and security of our children, friends and neighbors.”
