During a briefing on Thursday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked if two Jordanian immigrants who attempted to force their way into the Quantico Marine Corps Base in Virginia had been thwarted in carrying out a terrorist attack. The White House would not comment on the matter.  

"The deputy director of ICE is telling us that two Jordanian nationals are in removal proceedings now, after posing as Amazon delivery drivers to crash the gates at Quantico. Does the White House think this might have been a failed terrorist attack?" Peter Doocy from Fox News asked Jean-Pierre.  

"So going to be really mindful, these two Jordanians that you're speaking of remain in ICE custody and given that it is an active law enforcement matter, so I would have to refer you to ICE I just can't dive into this because again, this is a law enforcement matter," Jean-Pierre responded.  

According to Potomac Local News, two men inside a box truck attempted to crash through the base’s main gate on Fuller Road, just outside Dumfries. Officials told the outlet that two men posed as contractors for Amazon and sought to get in by force.  

Sources that were familiar with the situation told the outlet that the two men who were in the box truck later detained by ICE were a Jordanian who had crossed the southern border and that the other is on the US terrorist watch list.   

“One of the military police officers noticed the driver, ignoring the direct instructions of the officers, continued to move the vehicle past the holding area and attempted to access…Quantico,” commented base spokesman Capt. Micheal Curtis.
