The Jordanian man was apprehended by Border Patrol near San Ysidro in April

A Jordanian man who was detained after trying to ram his way into a Marine base in Quantico, Virginia, entered the US illegally across the southern border, according to ICE.

In a statement to Fox5DC, ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations confirmed that the man entered the US just a month prior to the attempted incursion, which took place on 3 May. The man, referred to by the ERO as “Jordanian noncitizen 2,” was picked up by Border Patrol near San Ysidro, California in April, before being released.

The man then joined forces with another Jordanian man, who was in the US on an expired student visa, and carried out what one former Navy SEAL described as a potential “dry run” for a future terrorist attack.

The two men were stopped in a box truck at the Fuller Road Gate of Marine Corps Base Quantico and told military police officers that they were delivery subcontractors for Amazon. The men were then directed to a holding area to be vetted, but ignored instructions and attempted to enter the base.

The security of US bases has become a source of growing concern, after a number of similar incidents in recent months. Vehicles have attempted to breach gates at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek–Fort Story, in Virginia, Naval Base San Diego and the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms, California. The attempted breach at the Air Ground Combat Center involved a Chinese national.
