If there’s any doubt as to the seriousness of the terrorist threat our country faces, and the urgent need to seal our borders to protect American lives, then these documents should put them to rest.
Leaked FBI documents obtained by Breitbart News show that in the past year, over 7,700 encounters with terrorists have occurred in the United States.
Any idea as to where a majority of those terrorist encounters have taken place?
Trump supporters certainly do, since they’re the only group that seems to recognize the threat we face. A large number of these incidents are occurring in states that share a border with Mexico.
Leaked documents with sensitive FBI data exclusively obtained by Breitbart Texas reveal that 7,712 terrorist encounters occurred within the United States in one year and that many of those encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border. The incidents are characterized as “Known or Suspected Terrorist Encounters.” Some of the encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border at ports-of-entry and some occurred in between, indicating that persons known or reasonably suspected of being terrorists attempted to sneak into the U.S. across the border. In all, the encounters occurred in higher numbers in border states.
Some of the documents pertain to the entire U.S., while others focus specifically on the state of Arizona. The documents are labeled, “UNCLASSIFIED/LAW ENFORCEMENT SENSITIVE” and contain data from the FBI-administered Terrorist Screening Center, the organization maintaining the Terrorist Screening Database, also known as the “Terror Watch List.”
The leaked FBI data are contained in a fusion center’s educational materials, specifically the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center’s (ACTIC) “Known or Suspected Terrorist (KST) Encounters Briefing” covering from July 20 2015 through July 20 2016. The leaked documents are composed of 10 individual pages, but Breitbart Texas chose to release only nine of them due to page 10 containing contact information for ACTIC.
Page Two of the documents contains a map of the entire U.S. with the numbers of encounters per state. The states with the highest encounters are all border states. Texas, California, and Arizona–all states with a shared border with Mexico–rank high in encounters.
Other highly targeted states include Michigan, Illinois, and of course, New York.

The leaked documents focus on Arizona in particular, and break down the types of terrorist incidents by religion or motivation.
A vast majority involved known or suspected Islamic terrorists.
Is it any wonder Americans are clamoring to build the damn wall? They don’t want to see more attacks and bombs in their cities and streets.
