Something might be rotten in the state of Biden.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is claiming that they have deleted a press release because it “revealed sensitive information,” according to The Washington Times.

The Monday release reported that two Yemeni men who are on the terrorism watch list were apprehended in California after attempting to illegally cross the Biden regime’s seemingly open southern border.

Shortly after the release’s publication, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) commented that they were “required” to remove the announcement in question.

“The news release in question was not properly reviewed and contained certain disclosure and policy information related to national security that required CBP to remove it from our website,” the Times quoted the CBP as having said.

According to the release, which is still available on the Internet Archive:

Agents conducted records checks, which revealed that the man, a 33-year-old illegal alien from Yemen, was on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List as well as on the No-Fly list.

Additionally, agents found a cellular phone sim card hidden underneath the insole of his shoe.

The man was transferred to the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The second incident occurred on March 30, at approximately 11:30 p.m., when agents assigned to the El Centro Station arrested a man for illegally entering the United States. Agents apprehended the man approximately two miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry and transported him to the El Centro Processing Center for immigration and criminal history screening.

Agents conducted records checks, which revealed that the man, a 26-year-old illegal alien from Yemen, was also on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List and on the No-Fly list.  

The man is being held in federal custody pending removal.

So what was so secretive about the release? Did it just not go through the right channels before being put out there? Was it never intended for public consumption? Or could it be that the federal government doesn’t want to add to the already mounting bad press about the sieve that is the U.S. southern border?
