DHS Arrests 8 with ISIS Links


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a heightened alert after arresting eight individuals from Tajikistan with suspected ISIS ties in New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. These individuals had entered the U.S. through the southern border and are now facing immigration violations. The arrests, part of a broader FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) operation, also included a significant weapon find in New York City. The DHS and FBI continue to work closely to identify and counter potential national security threats.



The recent arrests underscore the persistent challenges and complexities in safeguarding national security. Initially, the suspects passed through U.S. entry points without triggering terrorism-related alarms. However, ongoing surveillance and intelligence efforts led to their identification and arrest, demonstrating the critical need for vigilance and multi-agency collaboration in tracking potential terrorist activities.



iCognative™ technology, developed by Brainwave Science, offers a powerful tool in counter-terrorism efforts by analyzing brainwave responses to specific crime-related stimuli. This approach can significantly improve the detection and investigation of terrorist activities:

Integrating iCognative could greatly bolster the DHS’s capability to uncover extensive information, clarify suspect roles within terrorist networks, and effectively mitigate threats posed by those with links to terrorist organizations like ISIS.
