Nothing to see here, folks. Move along:

NBC affiliate KGNS reports:

According to a statement from the Department of Homeland Security, five Syrian nationals presented themselves at the Gateway to the Americas Bridge. A family consisting of a man, woman and child, and two other men were taken into custody by Customs and Border Protection — a standard procedure.

With the 8 that turned themselves in earlier, this makes 13 this week. So, how many don’t turn themselves in?

And don’t worry, guys — there’s nothing about them in the databases, so it’s cool:

The statement reads that CBP “checked their identities against numerous law enforcement and national security related databases. Records checks revealed no derogatory information about the individuals. CBP turned them over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for further processing and placement in an ICE facility.”
