Illegal immigration is a threat to national security


This country has a problem with Islamic terrorism.  In addressing this threat, the federal government has unfortunately overreacted at the airports while letting the Canadian and Mexican borders go unattended.




Iraqi and Egyptian Nationals Caught After Sneaking Across Open Border.  One Iraqi national and one Egyptian national were apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol agents after the individuals from terror-hotbeds had illegally entered the U.S. from Mexico.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed the concerning apprehensions to Breitbart Texas in a statement.  CBP declined to confirm that the foreign nationals were men, though a source operating under the umbrella of their agency claimed they were both males to Breitbart Texas.

"Islamic Refugee" With Gas Pipeline Plans Arrested in New Mexico Border County.  Despite official denials from authorities Judicial Watch stands by its reporting, which was subsequently corroborated by National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers Chairman Zack Taylor.  Police in a U.S. town bordering Mexico have apprehended an undocumented, Middle Eastern woman in possession of the region's gas pipeline plans, law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch.  Authorities describe the woman as an "Islamic refugee" pulled over during a traffic stop by a deputy sheriff in Luna County, New Mexico which shares a 54-mile border with Mexico.  County authorities alerted the U.S. Border Patrol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) has been deployed to the area to investigate, sources with firsthand knowledge of the probe confirm.

Southwest border is 'gaping wound' in homeland security, DHS chief says.  The lack of a border wall is "a gaping wound" in the country's defenses, Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said Tuesday, saying Border Patrol officials in the ground in Texas and Arizona can point to exact spots where fencing is needed right now.  Mr. Kelly also promised a marked jump in morale at his department, saying tens of thousands of immigration agents had been despondent after having their hands tied by the Obama administration, and are now eager to get back to enforcing the law — the job they were hired to do.

Former INS Agent:  Refugee Screening is to Process People, Not ID Terrorists.  Just discovered by a citizen activist is this May 2016 discussion about the pros and cons of admitting Middle Eastern refugees to the US at McCuistion, a non-profit organization.  We learned that The Foundation for Responsible Television has been producing the McCuistion Program for 20 years.  A.J. Irwin, a former Homeland Security agent and expert on terrorism describes the screening process that we have been told is so long and so thorough.

Thousands of Terrorists, Foreign Fighters Tried to Enter America, New Data Shows.  The Department of Homeland Security stopped more than 22,000 "high-risk" travelers from entering the United States in 2015, but officials remain uncertain about how effective these security screening methods are, opening the possibility that risky individuals such as terrorists are still being approved for entry into America, according to a new government report highlighting these flaws.  More than 8,100 "known or suspected terrorists, or individuals with connections to known or suspected terrorists, attempted to apply for travel to the United States or board U.S.-bound flights" in 2015, according to the report, which chides U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for failing to determine how effective its current screening methods are.

Video Reveals USCIS Complacency Regarding Fake Passports for Syrians.  An undercover video recorded by an operative from the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) during a visit to a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office in Port Chester, New York, on January 6, revealed that USCIS officials — even if informed that aliens attempting to enter the United States have false credentials — will sometimes admit the aliens anyway.  AFDI operative Laura Loomer went to the USCIS office just north of New York City and told an official there that she had met a family of illegal aliens from Syria who were afraid to visit the government office themselves because "they don't have documents because they came here illegally," with forged passports.

Jihadists Train, Plan U.S. Attack from Mexican Border State of Nuevo León.  A Jihadi-cartel alliance in the Mexican state of Nuevo León is collaborating to carry out attacks in American cities and ports of entry along the southern border, according to intelligence obtained by Judicial Watch from confidential U.S. and Mexican law enforcement sources.  As part of the plan, militant Islamists have arrived recently at the Monterrey International Airport situated in Apodaca, Nuevo León, about 130 miles south of the Texas border.  An internal Mexican law enforcement report obtained by Judicial Watch confirms that Islamic terrorists have "people along the border, principally in Tijuana, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas."  Cartel informants tell law enforcement contacts that "they are only waiting for the order and the times to carry out a simultaneous attack in the different ports of entry or cities of the United States of America."  Drug cartels have a working "agreement" with Islamic terrorists, according to a high-ranking Mexican police administrator, who said that men from the Middle East arrive regularly into the country to "train" jihadists.

Thousands of African Muslim invaders in Tijuana refugee camp have been crossing into the U.S. illegally.  The invaders, nearly all of whom are young males from Africa, are flooding into the U.S. on a daily basis from this camp.  While Americans have been distracted with the presidential election, thousands Muslim illegals have been allowed entry from Mexico, at the same time Obama has ordered Border Patrols to stand down.

Exclusive: Three Pakistani Men Apprehended in U.S. at Arizona Border.  Three Pakistani men were apprehended after crossing into the U.S. from Mexico in the Tucson Sector.  A combination of sources — including official confirmation from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) — revealed the men were in fact apprehended and are currently in U.S. federal custody.  Breitbart Texas sources first released the information and CBP confirmed via email.

With focus on Mexico border, criminals, terrorists may be entering via Canada, report says.  The images were worrisome — four men in camouflage outfits, with what seemed like weapons in tow, crossing the U.S. border.  Then there's the video showing another group sneaking across the border late at night.  Neither group was stopped, and U.S. border officials still do not know who they are or where they ended up.  Part of the reason why is because these illegal entries didn't occur along the U.S.'s closely-watched 2,000-mile-long border with Mexico.  They happened on the border with Canada, which despite being nearly three times longer at 5,500 miles, has long stretches that are unmanned and unpatrolled, with only gadgets — such as cameras — to document illicit activity, according to the New York Times.

Immigration Official Admits 'Many' Refugees Have Been Convicted of Terrorist Offenses, Can't Say How Many.  U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Leon Rodriguez told Congress Thursday [9/29/2016] that "not a single act of actual terrorist violence has been a committed by a refugee" who underwent USCIS screening procedures since 9/11, but later admitted that there were "many people" who came into the refugee program as adults who were convicted of terrorist offenses.  "The fact is that since Sept. 11, not a single act of actual terrorist violence has been committed by a refugee who has undergone our screening procedures.  There have been individuals who came to the U.S. as children," Rodriguez told the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest during its hearing on the refugee resettlement program.

DHS Secretary 'Concerned' About Illegal Aliens From Middle East.  Poverty and violence in Central America continue to push hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens toward the United States, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told Congress on Tuesday.  He said he's particularly concerned about infiltrators from the Middle East.  "I am concerned about what we refer to as the special interest alien that comes from the other hemisphere that turns up on our southern border," Johnson told the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

Leaked FBI Data Reveals 1000s Of Terrorist Encounters In The USA.  If Bush were still president, would this be a front page story?  Shouldn't it be even if he's not?

Secret Report:  Terrorists Running Wild Within U.S. Borders.  The Obama administration has been concealing the staggering breadth of terrorist activity in the United States — quantified as close to 8,000 terrorist encounters in a recent year — a leaked government report suggests.  There are disturbing parallels between the Obama administration's ongoing cover-up of the true extent of terrorist operations in the U.S. and its election season cover-up four years ago of the real causes of the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2012. [...] There have been 92 Muslim terrorist plots in the U.S. since Sept. 11, 2001.  The overwhelming majority of those plots took place during Barack Obama's presidency.

Islamist Killers Do Not Have a 'Right' To Be Here.  Hillary Clinton, responding to the knife attack in a St. Cloud, Minnesota mall for which ISIS took credit and the bombing in New York's Chelsea neighborhood by a gay-hating Afghan-born Islamist who was a naturalized American citizen, warned us not about the dangers of radical Islamic terrorism, but of intolerance to Muslim-Americans: [...] Yes, Hillary, there are a lot of naturalized American citizens, including the 858 from what are euphemistically called "special interest countries", naturalized by "mistake" due to the use of multiple identities and fingerprints not digitized in any database.  This speaks to Donald Trump's [idea] about a cessation of admitting refugees from these countries until we know what we're doing.  Clearly we do not.

DHS Secretary 'Just Recently Asked' Officials to 'Focus on Immigrants Coming Illegally From Other Hemispheres'.  Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says he "just recently" asked the Border Patrol "to focus" on illegal immigrants coming from "other hemispheres," including the Middle East.  "In terms of the Southwest border, I just recently asked for them to focus on immigrants coming illegally from other hemispheres, from the Middle East and so forth, to detect them and block them before they even get to the homeland, working with governments in South America, Central America to prevent that from happening," Johnson told "Fox News Sunday."

Hundreds of Somalis and other Africans coming across US southern border, requesting asylum.  This is nothing new, it's been going on for all the years I've been writing this blog.  However, I expect the pace has been picking up lately as they fear that Trump might be serious about the wall.  You know that anyone, supposedly impoverished, but with the resources to travel across the world to get to our border, has to be up to no good.  In fact, since we take thousands (over 8,000 Somalis this year alone) of supposedly legitimate refugees from Africa, my first question is, so why didn't they apply through regular channels?

Visa security loophole exploited by 9/11 attackers [is] still open 15 years later.  At least five of the Sept. 11 hijackers exploited a glaring hole in visa security to stay in the U.S. beyond their time — allowing them to board the planes and conduct their murderous attack.  Fifteen years later, and despite a clear consensus on the need for improvement, that gaping hole remains.  "In too many cases that's still happening — they come in legally, but we don't know if they've left, and if they haven't left, we don't know where they are," said Tom Kean, former governor of New Jersey and chairman of the 9/11 Commission that looked into the 2001 attack and crafted a long list of changes to put homeland security on firmer footing.  "That is probably the most important unfulfilled recommendation," Mr. Kean told reporters this week ahead of the commemoration of the attack that ushered in the current war-on-terrorism era.

916 Illegals From Terror-Linked Countries Apprehended Since 2014.  U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended at least 916 illegal immigrants from countries linked to terrorism trying to sneak into the United States across the Southwest border in 2014 and 2015, according to a Breitbart News tally gleaned from federal data released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).  During that period, nearly 370 may have successfully entered the United States, according to U.S. government estimate of "gotaways."  The number of illegals from terror-linked countries, officially known as Special Interest Aliens (SIAs), arrested along the U.S.-Mexico border has nearly doubled to 462 in 2015 alone, from 255 in 2011, the last year for which the government released data without a FOIA request.

Thousands of Middle Eastern Illegal Immigrants Busted with Forged Papers at Border.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents working with Mexican immigration officials have found thousands of non-Hispanic illegal immigrants crossing Mexico's southern border to make their way to Texas.  The "extra-continental" immigrants enter countries as far south as Brazil and make their way to the United States, often with forged travel documents.  "The reality is that the vast majority of the people that Mexico encounters [on its southern border] that are extra-continental will eventually end up on our border," a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told Reuters this week.

Shock report:  Feds vetting immigrants for terrorists ask if Communists, not ISIS.  A new analysis of how the United States "vets" immigrants reveals that written visa and citizenship surveys ask if applicants are World War II Nazi veterans or sympathizers, but not members of ISIS, al Qaeda or other Islamic terror groups at war with America.

Report: Illegal Migrants from Terror-Linked Countries Surging at Southern Border.  U.S. officials are trying to establish closer cooperation with various Latin American nations to combat an increase in the number of illegal migrants from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East attempting to sneak into the United States.  Between October 2015 and May 2016, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, a component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), detained 5,350 African and Asian migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border, according to Reuters.  The apprehensions of illegals from Africa and Asia during that period marks an increase from those that took place in all of 2015 (4,261) and 2014 (1,831).

ISIS Terrorist Tells Feds He Has Jihadist Brothers in Mexico Confirming JW Reports.  An ISIS operative arrested and criminally charged in Ohio this month has confirmed that the terrorist group has cells in Mexico, according to federal authorities.  Judicial Watch has reported this for years, documenting it in a series of articles as part of an ongoing investigation on the connection between drug cartels, corruption and terrorism on the southern border.  In fact, last spring Judicial Watch broke a story about an ISIS camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas in an area known as "Anapra" situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.  Though a number of high-level law enforcement, intelligence and military sources on both sides of the border have provided Judicial Watch with evidence that Islamic terrorist cells are operating in Mexico, the Obama administration has publicly denied it, both to Judicial Watch and in mainstream media outlets.  Now we have a terrorism suspect in custody proudly affirming it.

Critical Infrastructure Being Guarded by Muslim Immigrants.  We know that Omar Mateen, the Orlando shooter, was employed by G4S Plc, a British security firm whose clients in more than 100 countries include the U.S. government (e.g.  DHS).  It is also known that his firm was part of a larger organization that participated in the catch and release of OTM's (other than Mexicans) at the southern border.  The OTM's consisted of people from other Central American countries as well as Muslims from the Middle East.  Once these OTM's were caught, they were released into the deep interior of the country without being screened and without supervision.  Mateen's firm is technically operating under the direction of DHS on this matter.  The catch and release of Muslims at the southern border violates our nation's immigration laws.  However, as we witnessed last week with the FBI giving Clinton a get out of jail card for self-admitted criminal activity, our federal government is playing by its own rules that they are making up as they go along.

Muslim Profiling Isn't Illegal Unconstitutional, or Un-American.  Current federal law [Title 8, Section 1182 of the U.S. Code, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952] gives the President legal authority to suspend — by a simple proclamation, and without any action by Congress — the entry of "any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States [who] would be detrimental to the interests of the United States," and to do so indefinitely.  President Obama has in fact already used this power.  This existing statutory grant of authority to the President, and to those to whom he may delegate this power, is very broad, and a very recent Supreme Court decision held that he could withhold visas on national security grounds without providing any reason at all.  Thus, even without any action by Congress to give him additional authority, it is likely that the President could at least temporarily ban immigrants who are Muslim.  If Congress were to back this proposal by enacting specific legislation to carry it out, the case for its legality would be even stronger.  And there is clear precedent.  Indeed, over a period of more than 100 years, Congress has repeatedly limited immigration by many different groups of people seeking admission.

"Islamic Refugee" With Gas Pipeline Plans Arrested in New Mexico Border County.  Police in a U.S. town bordering Mexico have apprehended an undocumented, Middle Eastern woman in possession of the region's gas pipeline plans, law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch.  Authorities describe the woman as an "Islamic refugee" pulled over during a traffic stop by a deputy sheriff in Luna County, New Mexico which shares a 54-mile border with Mexico.  County authorities alerted the U.S. Border Patrol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) has been deployed to the area to investigate, sources with firsthand knowledge of the probe confirm.

Visa Waiver Program countries aren't sharing travelers' criminal, terrorism records with U.S..  A third of the countries whose citizens can travel to the U.S. without a visa aren't sharing critical terrorism or criminal record data with American authorities, creating a major security risk, the government's chief watchdog said Monday [5/6/2016].  There are 38 countries in the visa waiver program and each of them has agreed to grant the U.S. access to data on stolen or lost passports, on criminal history of would-be travelers, and on terrorism risks.  But while all countries share passport data, a third don't report criminal history and a third fail to share their terrorism and national security records, the Government Accountability Office said.

Yes, Terrorists Are Setting Their Sights on Our Open Southern Border.  According to press reports, a man arrested as part of an Islamic State (ISIS) group in Minnesota claimed he wanted to setup a pipeline to funnel terrorists into the U.S. through Mexico.  The story rekindles concerns over the security of our southern border.  It should come as no surprise that there are reports of terrorists trying to cross from Mexico to the U.S. — it's been tried before.  In 2011, Iranian agents tried to recruit a Mexican cartel to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States with a car bomb while he dined at a restaurant in Washington, D.C.  The assault on our border is overwhelming — and it's not just about jumping over walls.  U.S. officials just discovered a massive 800-foot tunnel under the border — complete with elevator.  This means that bad actors are increasingly flying over the border, and they've used undersea craft, as well as speedboats, to smuggle people into the U.S.

State Dept.  Official: 'No Excuse for Governments to Not Enforce Effective Border Controls'.  The U.S. State Department's Acting Coordinator for Counterterrorism, Justin Siberell, told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in a written statement today [5/26/2016] that "[t]here is no excuse for governments to not enforce effective border controls."  "There is no greater priority than keeping America safe from the threat of terrorism," Siberell told the committee at a hearing on "Protecting America from the Threat of ISIS."  In his written statement and spoken testimony, Siberell cited the importance of border security in foreign nations to stopping the flow of terrorists.

General Boykin:  Obama Is Letting In Terrorists — GOP Too Weak To Stop Him.  Lt.  General Jerry Boykin is a former Delta Force commander.  He recently came out firing at both the President and the GOP.  First, he claims the President is bordering on "impeachable" offenses by allowing terrorists to actively flow across our border with Mexico. [...] He goes on to say that the GOP are basically spineless and unable to stop the president.  The most shocking statement is how grave the General feels the situation has become.  For the good of the country, General Boykin could see military leaders stepping in.

Why Were Texas Game Wardens Just Issued Nuclear Radiation Detectors?  After countless reports about the potential for nuclear or radioactive weapons of mass destruction being smuggled into the United States, the State of Texas is has begun to take the threat seriously.

Is ISIS Moving To Texas?  Little by little ISIS seems to be moving in on Texas, not just by radicalizing Texans but by slipping through the unprotected U.S./Mexican border.  Thanks to the efforts of Judicial Watch, information became publicly available about the arrest of four members of ISIS/jihadists who were caught in McAllen and Pharr, Texas in 2014.  This in addition to eye witness sources who confirmed to Judicial Watch much more recent ISIS-related border crossings and an ISIS Camp 8 miles south of El Paso, Texas.

Consequences of Bad People Among Us.  During World War II the United States completely shut down any immigration of persons from the countries we were at war with, Germany, Italy and Japan.  Our government did not disallow these people from coming into the country because they believed every last one of them were dangerous, because they were being insensitive, or because they were just a bunch of racists.  The United States Government shut down the immigration of persons from the countries we were at war with because we were unable to tell the good from the bad.

Yes, We Need a Canadian Border Wall.  Canada's sloppy, rushed and reckless Syrian refugee resettlement program is America's looming national security nightmare. [...] The Canadian liberal government has fast-tracked tens of thousands of Syrian Muslims into its country over the past five months and now plans to double its interim 25,000 goal by 2019.  The bleeding-heart Canucks are forging ahead despite reports this week of the country's failed $16 million screening program to stop Islamic terrorists from slipping through the cracks.  Multiple databases are not interoperable.  Information is outdated or useless.  Canadian agents are delivering incomplete background checks too late to matter, anyway.  Result:  Garbage in, garbage out, and untold numbers of unvetted refugees from jihad hotbeds on the loose at our doorstep.

Syrian surge! 'Refugees' flood into U.S. at rate of 358 per week.  A flood of Muslim refugees from Syria, an average of 358 per week to be exact, is expected to arrive in the United States between now and the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30.  The Obama administration has decided to implement a "surge" in Syrian refugees, fast-tracking the arrival of those fleeing civil war in that country to make good on its commitment of bringing 10,000 by the end of fiscal 2016.  The "surge" is needed because the administration has delivered only 1,411 in the first six-and-a-half months of the year.

DHS Says Mexican Border "More Secure now than it has Been in Many, Many Years".  Islamic terrorists and droves of illegal immigrants — mainly youths — have slipped into the United States through Mexico recently, but the deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) insists the "the border is more secure now than it has been in many, many years.  This delusional assessment brings to mind when President Obama's first DHS secretary, Janet Napolitano, repeatedly proclaimed the border is as secure as it's ever been amid escalating drug-cartel violence that spilled into the U.S. and a crisis of narcotics and human smuggling in the region.  Though the situation has only worsened, the administration continues to repeat the same lies even though a number of reports have confirmed that Islamic terrorists have entered the U.S. through the famously porous southern border and tens of thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) keep crossing in without ever encountering federal agents before touching American soil.  If anything the southern border has become a national security threat of epic proportions, illustrated by Judicial Watch's reporting in the last few years.

ISIS Camp a Few Miles from Texas, Mexican Authorities Confirm.  ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.  The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as "Anapra" situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.  Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.  During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as "plans" of Fort Bliss — the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army's 1st Armored Division.  Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

Hundreds of Convicted Terrorists Are Already Held in U.S. Prisons.  Republican leaders have blocked the closing of the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, because they say they do not want terrorists held on United States soil.  But American prisons currently hold 443 convicted terrorists, far more than the 89 men who remain imprisoned in Cuba.  The New York Times was able to confirm locations for about a third of the terrorists, shown on the map above.  The Department of Justice would not release the names or locations of the other prisoners who had been convicted of terrorism.

What is Homeland Security Hiding Behind Immigration Numbers?  As Americans ominously observe the raging fire of suicidal immigration policies implemented by our European friends across the pond, one of the first questions on their minds is:  how many of these Islamic radicals have been admitted to our country?  The answer is we don't even know how many people in total have come to our country since 2013 because the Department of Homeland Security has refused to publish that data or make it available to Congress.

Paris Jihad: It's Immigration, Stupid.  Republicans in Congress know what they have to do.  If they fail to convene this week and immediately work towards ending the Islamic refugee program, it's safe to say they should all resign from office.  At its core, the predominant job of the federal government is to protect the citizenry from invasion.  That is the essence of the social compact and why we agreed to form a constitutional federal union in the first place.

Belgian Terrorists Can Still Enter US Without a Visa.  Leading lawmakers identified Belgium as a hotspot for terrorism months ago and are warning that many of the radicalized individuals living there are still able to travel to the United States without first obtaining a visa and undergoing thorough security checks.  Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told the Washington Free Beacon Tuesday afternoon [3/22/2016] that current flaws in the U.S. visa waiver program — which facilities travel to the United States from partner nations including Belgium — have created a loophole that could permit radicalized individuals to legally enter the United States with minimal background checks.

Report: Border Patrol corruption is a 'national security threat'.  The U.S. Border Patrol's discipline for corruption and abuse is so weak it poses a threat to national security, a new government report found.  A new 49-page report from an independent task force said corruption in the Border Patrol poses "a national security threat" because it undermines the agency's ability to protect the country from terrorism.

Disclosure: Another 41 Foreign-Born Individuals Snagged On Terror Charges.  Following the discovery of a terrorist cell in Texas allegedly operated by an Iraqi who entered the United States as a refugee, the Washington Free Beacon has learned of an additional 41 individuals who have been implicated in terrorist plots in the United States since 2014, bringing the total number of terrorists discovered since that time to 113, according to information provided by Congressional sources.  Since August, however, the Obama administration has stonewalled Congressional efforts to obtain more detailed immigration histories of these individuals, prompting frustration on Capitol Hill and accusation that the administration is covering up these histories to avoid exposing flaws in the U.S. screening process.

Feds can't say whereabouts of those whose visas were revoked over terror threat.  The Obama administration cannot be sure of the whereabouts of thousands of foreigners in the U.S. who had their visas revoked over terror concerns and other reasons, a State Department official acknowledged Thursday [12/17/2015].  The admission, made at a House oversight hearing examining immigrant vetting in the wake of major terror attacks, drew a sharp rebuke from the committee chairman.  "You don't have a clue do you?" Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Michele Thoren Bond, assistant secretary for the Bureau of Consular Affairs.

Team led by Middle Eastern Woman Caught Surveilling U.S. Facility on Mexican Border.  A Middle Eastern woman was caught surveilling a U.S. port of entry on the Mexican border holding a sketchbook with Arabic writing and drawings of the facility and its security system, federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch.  The woman has been identified as 23-year-old Leila Abdelrazaq, according to a Customs and Border Patrol (CPB) report obtained by JW this week.  Abdelrazaq appeared to have two accomplices, a 31-year-old man named Gabriel Schivone and a 28-year-old woman named Leslie Mcafee.  CBP agents noticed the trio "observing the facilities" at the Port of Mariposa in Nogales, Arizona on December 2.  Schivone was first noticed inside the entrance of the pedestrian area while the two women stood outside by the entry door, the CPB document states.

Unlimited Muslim immigration: A Congress of fools or traitors?  Senate bill 153, the Immigration Innovation Act (or I-Squared), led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), would allow for virtually unlimited Muslim immigration into the United States. [...] A recent Pew Research report found that "nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) and most in Iraq (91%) and Pakistan (84%) support sharia law as official law."  Yet in the last five years, the U.S. has issued 83,000 green cards to Pakistan, 83,000 green cards to Iraq and 11,000 green cards to Afghanistan.  According to Fox News' Chad Pergram, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and House Republicans are gearing up to attach a proposal to the omnibus spending bill that gives Barack Obama a blank check, empowering him to bring in an unlimited number of refugees.

A hardline shift from an immigration reformer.  I know this is not my usual position.  But this is a war.  Therefore I have come to believe there should be no immigration or visa waivers until the U.S. adopts a completely new system to stop radical Islamic terrorists from entering the country.  A wartime lockdown.  And a big change in my thinking.  ISIS and related Islamic terrorists are already here.  More are coming.  We must stop them.  Until FBI director James Comey gives us the green light, I say seal the borders.  Here's what we must do:  Completely reform the vetting process for immigrants and foreign visitors.  Change the screening process.  Come up with a new visa-application review process.  Stop this nonsense of marriage-visa fraud.  And in the meantime, seal the borders.

ISIS Crossing Southern Border From Mexico?  Terror Debate Sparks Alarm Over Possible Islamic State Immigration.  Tim Foley recently returned from a 10-day patrol mission through the cactus and bush-covered borderland that stretches between Mexico and the U.S. states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.  He's one of many Americans concerned about a porous border that sits just 400 yards from his home, but also among the few who has taken matters into his own hands.

Argentina arrests 7 Syrians citizens with fake passports heading north.  Argentina has arrested seven Syrian citizens in Buenos Aires for using falsified Greek passports, continuing a trend of migrants from the troubled Middle Eastern nation using Latin America as a pathway to refugee status.  The Syrians, who were detained in Buenos Aires in two operations that targeted false passport holders, said that they were refugees fleeing their home country.  Two of the seven were purportedly on their way to Uruguay.

Female San Bernardino shooter reportedly entered US on 'fiancée' visa with inaccurate address.  The ISIS-inspired female terrorist in the recent mass killings in San Bernardino, Calif., reportedly entered the country on a so-called "fiancée visa" that listed a false or at least inaccurate foreign home address.  The woman, Tashfeen Malik, listed an address in her home country of Pakistan.  This summer, she received her Green Card, which allows immigrants to legally live and work in the United States, according to ABC News.  The Department of Homeland Security did not respond Saturday to a Fox News request for comment.

5 arrested on Ohio Turnpike in Trumbull County.  They are all from in and around Columbus and are being held in the Trumbull County Jail.  Officials confirmed with WCMH in Columbus that there was no terrorist link to the alleged activity.  Once the vehicle was stopped, it was searched.  According to the report, the five men arrested were Jibril Abdiselam, 24; Mohammeddeq Hassan, 27; Mohamed Mahamoud, 26; Zakaria Warsame, 25; and Said Sheikh.

Same story as above, but now it turns out they're "foreign nationals."
Ohio: 5 Muslim Foreign Nationals Arrested with Identify Theft Equipment.  How many did they help around and through the vetting process?

Caution:  graphic images.
List of Refugee Jihadis Secretly Arrested in America.  [M]any of the jihad attempts in the United States are launched by the children of Muslim refugees and migrants.  That list include the two Chechen brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon, and Anwar al-Awlaki who was killed by a U.S missile strike when he fled to Yemen after the 9/11 atrocity.  That means the Americans' federal government is actively importing national-security problems that will eventually cost billions of dollars to manage, but cannot be eliminated.

'Fear itself': A tale of two speeches.  First, a few facts:
  •   At least two of the Muslims involved in the Paris terror attacks were posing as Syrian refugees, and several others had visited Syria, where ISIS controls a large swath of the countryside.
  •   The vast majority of the Syrian "migrants" arriving in Europe and who will appeal to the UN for refugee status are neither widows nor orphans, but rather able-bodied men between the ages of 18 and 30, the same demographic that is associated with suicide bombings and attacks throughout the Muslim world and Europe.
  •   Five Syrians were apprehended earlier this month in Honduras with fake Greek passports, and other Syrians have been trying to cross the border from Mexico into the U.S.  No doubt they have heard that once you are across the border, you stand a pretty good chance of being invited to stay by either a judge, Congress, or a lawless president operating outside the bounds of the Constitution.
  [...] We have been fooled so many times by Muslim immigrants and refugees who turned out to harbor deadly intentions that we can never live down our shame.

These armed civilians are patrolling the border to keep ISIS out of America.  Tim "Nailer" Foley was more than 5,000 miles away from Paris when Islamic State terrorists launched a series of coordinated attacks throughout the French capital, killing 130 people and injuring hundreds more.  But Foley — a former construction foreman who now spends his days with a band of heavily armed civilians, voluntarily patrolling the some of the most remote and dangerous stretches of the U.S.-Mexico border — wasn't surprised.  For years now, Foley said, he's been warning the FBI that sprinkled among the groups of immigrants he intercepts illegally crossing the border are foreign nationals who aren't from Mexico.

680,000 Green Cards Given to Immigrants of Muslim Countries.  The United States has issued 680,000 green cards to immigrants of Muslim-majority countries, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  The green cards were issued within the last five years and will be reissued again in five years.  Among the people who received green cards are individuals who entered the United States as refugees.  The data, released by Senator Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), adds that these, "refugees have instant access to federal welfare and entitlements, along with local benefits and education services; these costs are not offset."

Five Syrians Stopped at Laredo International Bridge One.  Five more Syrians have been stopped at a Laredo port of entry on Friday [11/20/2015].  This brings the total number of Syrians seeking to enter the US through our city this week up to 13.

US May Have Let 'Dozens' of Terrorists Into Country As Refugees.  Several dozen suspected terrorist bombmakers, including some believed to have targeted American troops, may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the United States as war refugees, according to FBI agents investigating the remnants of roadside bombs recovered from Iraq and Afghanistan.  The discovery in 2009 of two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky — who later admitted in court that they'd attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq — prompted the bureau to assign hundreds of specialists to an around-the-clock effort aimed at checking its archive of 100,000 improvised explosive devices collected in the war zones, known as IEDs, for other suspected terrorists' fingerprints.

Left, Media [Bewail] Breitbart Scoop on Syrians at Border.  The story, citing federal officials speaking on condition of anonymity, reports that "eight Syrian illegal aliens attempted to enter Texas from Mexico in the Laredo Sector" and were "apprehended at the Juarez Lincoln Bridge in Laredo, Texas, also known officially as Port of Entry 1."  No one can dispute those facts.  So they are trying to spin them.

6 Men from Pakistan, Afghanistan Busted Illegally Entering Arizona from Mexico.  A highly trusted federal agent working under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed to Breitbart Texas that a group composed of 5 Pakistani men and 1 man from Afghanistan was captured by U.S. Border Patrol agents after having illegally crossed the porous U.S.-Mexico border in the Tucson Sector of Arizona.

State Dept. Says Syrian Refugees Can Live 'Wherever They Want'.  Obama recently berated those who oppose allowing Syrian refugees entry to the US.  "That's shameful.  That's not American.  That's not who we are," said our Incompetent-in-Chief.  No, Barry, the real "shameful, not American, not who we are" thing is:  having you in the WH.

Five Syrians arrested in Honduras trying to reach U.S. with stolen Greek passports.  Honduran authorities said on Wednesday [11/18/2015] they had intercepted six Syrian nationals traveling on doctored Greek passports in the past week, including five who had been trying to reach the United States.  Five of the men were detained late on Tuesday [11/17/2015] in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, on arrival from Costa Rica, and had been planning to head to the border with neighboring Guatemala.

Report: al Qaeda Terrorists Entered United States Through Refugee Program.  Two al Qaeda terrorists who had killed American soldiers were able to enter the country as refugees, according to a report released Wednesday [11/18/2015] from the House Homeland Security committee.  Waad Ramadan Alwan and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, two Iraqi refugees settled in Bowling Green, Kentucky, after killing American soldiers, whom they bragged about having "for lunch and dinner."  In 2010, they were caught handling weapons, including included a machine gun and a missile launcher, that they planned to smuggle to insurgents in Iraq.

Report: 8 Syrians Caught at Texas Border in Laredo.  Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that eight Syrian illegal aliens attempted to enter Texas from Mexico in the Laredo Sector.  The federal agents spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity, however, a local president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) confirmed that Laredo Border Patrol agents have been officially contacting the organization with concerns over reports from other federal agents about Syrians illegally entering the country in the Laredo Sector.  The reports have caused a stir among the sector's Border Patrol agents.

Many U.S. 'Citizen Terrorists' Are Also Legal Immigrants.  Dozens of the U.S. citizens arrested in recent years on terror-related charges are immigrants admitted to the United States legally who later obtained citizenship.  More than 70 U.S. residents have been publicly arrested and charged with conspiring to help, attempting to help, or actually helping terror networks such as Islamic State in recent years.  At least 15 of them received U.S. citizenship after being admitted to the country legally, including one of the Boston bombers.

Threat poll
Texas poll: Illegal immigration is the greatest threat to the United States.  A new poll released by the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune — conducted before the Paris terrorist attacks — reveals that Texas voters overwhelmingly view illegal immigration and foreign terrorist groups as the greatest threats facing the United States.


First 10,000 Syrian refugees destined for 180 unsuspecting US communities.  After the Hayride broke the exclusive story on 10,000 Syrian refugees possibly resettling in Baton Rouge, Lafayette and Metairie, it has now come to light that refugees are already coming into the New Orleans area.  Catholic Charities, which receive federal grants from U.S. Department of State/Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, have apparently taken in two Syrian refugee families already and are expecting many more.

You will never guess how the U.S. is 'vetting' Syrian refugees.  Normally, if someone wants to come into the United States, say, from France or Germany, our government can check with the French or German government to see if this person has a criminal record, or even is who he says he is.  But when it comes to refugees from Syria, what is called "vetting" relies mostly on one source of information:  the refugee.

It Begins: A Syrian Refugee is Already Missing in Louisiana.  Liberals continue to tell us the "vetting process" for refugees is under control and the federal government is monitoring everyone once they're in the country, but that's a total fallacy.  Take a look at what just happened in Louisiana.

Thanks, Obama! Syrian 'Refugee' Goes Missing in Louisiana, Has Reportedly Fled the State.  Good thing we have zero identity or photo of this so-called refugee.

New Report: 93% Increase In Immigration From Saudi Arabia.  The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has published another analysis of the immigration population based on Census data released last week from the American Community Survey (ACS).  The ACS is a widespread household survey and contains very detailed questions about the current population and arrival of immigrants.  One of the striking results of this survey is that it reveals a massive increase in immigration from "predominantly Muslim countries," as broken down by CIS.

Obama to "increase and accelerate" Islamist invasion of U.S..  What the media reports is a mere sliver of what is actually in progress and being planned. [...] Obama needs to be impeached immediately.  Those who swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution are derelict of duty and have been for some time.  Not only will Obama force American towns and cities to absorb millions of illegal aliens and Muslim invaders, but he is making American taxpayers bear 100% of the cost.  The plunder of American taxpayers is compounded by the theft of billions of dollars from Americans sent to Muslim nations, often directly to terrorist organizers and organizations.

Immigration: A Nation-Destroying Weapon of War!  Immigration degrades and ultimately destroys our native culture and replaces it with immigrant culture.  If immigration is left unchecked, the United States will become a third world country before the decade is out!  Last night's horrific attack in Paris is the inevitable result of Globalist policies[,] and they bear full responsibility for the deaths and violence that their criminally-insane open borders policies have produced.  Unless we immediately obtain control of our borders and expel all illegal immigrants, the violence we will shortly face will be far worse than anything that has happened in France[.]

Democrats going to the mat over taking in tens of thousands of Syrian refugees.  It is inconceivable to me that anything close to a majority of American voters wants to put ourselves at risk from ISIS infiltrators in the name of compassion for draft age males streaming into Europe from ISISland.

Rand Paul: Rubio Blocked Amendment That Would Have Protected U.S. From Jihadists.  Asked about the Paris attacks, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul singled out opponent Florida Sen. Marco Rubio on Saturday for blocking an amendment he offered to the 2013 Senate immigration bill that would have made it harder for foreigners from countries with a large jihadist presence to come to the United States.

7 Shocking Facts About Islamic Immigration.  Has America already become like Europe with respect to homegrown terror and Islamic immigration?  Either way, what can we do to delay the inevitable slide into cultural suicide and crossing that point of no return many European countries have already traversed?

Jindal demands answers about Syrian refugees arriving to Louisiana after Paris attacks.  In the wake of the recent terrorist attacks by an IS (Islamic State) in Paris, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal released a letter addressed to President Obama in regards to Syrian refugees seeking asylum in Louisiana.  The letter was also copied to Sylvia Burwell, Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services, Jeh Johnson, Secretary, Department of Homeland Security and James Comey, Director, Federal Bureau of Investigations.

Carson: Don't let Middle Eastern refugees into US.  In the wake of apparent terror attacks in Paris on Friday, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said the United States should deny refugees from the Middle East admittance into the country. [...] Carson called the "global Islamic movement" an "existential threat" and said lawmakers should block the Obama administration from allowing more refugees from the Middle East into the United States.

Jihadists Disguised as Refugees.  Muslim extremists and jihadists pretend to be asylum seekers and apply for asylum in Europe, according to reports from intelligence and security services since the mid-1990s.  The then Dutch Domestic Security Service BVD (now the AIVD) reported in May 1998 that radical Muslims from Tunisian, Egyptian and Algerian terrorist organizations had applied for asylum in the Netherlands.  "These asylum seekers can count on the support of local sympathizers."  And in April 2001 the BVD/AIVD warned of "Islamic war veterans" posing as people who "are looking for asylum or illegal migrants who seek refuge in Western countries who will continue the fight or support it."

Comey: Feds have roughly 900 domestic probes about Islamic State operatives, other extremists.  FBI Director James Comey said Friday [10/23/2015] that federal authorities have an estimated 900 active investigations pending against suspected Islamic State-inspired operatives and other home-grown violent extremists across the country.  In a speech to intelligence officials, Comey initially indicated that all 900 of the inquiries were ISIL related.  Later, officials said the vast majority involved ISIL but the number also included other U.S.-based extremists.

13 reasons why we should not admit Muslim 'refugees'.  [#1] They are not "refugees."  They are invaders; soldiers of Allah:  What is unfolding is hijra, otherwise known as immigration jihad.  It is written in the Quran and is a powerful strategy the Islamic world has used for many centuries to overwhelm nations and assert dominance.  We must not allow our culture to be undermined and destroyed by increasing the population of Muslims in the United States.  [#2] The vast majority of Muslims flooding into the West are young men:  We are being invaded by an army of young fighting-age men from across the Islamic world. Muslim males often wreak havoc wherever they go, including disproportionately high levels of involvement with criminal activity, rape, threats against others, terrorism, and everything in between.  We should not be importing a demographic of people who have a propensity toward violence.

Muslim 'Refugees' and Terrorism in America.  While the World Trade Center bombing and the Boston Marathon bombing cases are the most famous terrorist attacks by Muslim refugees, there are numerous other cases of Muslim refugee terror.  America has been resettling huge numbers of Somali Muslim refugees.  One of them, Nuradin Abdi, was an illegal alien who wanted to bomb a shopping mall in Columbus, Ohio after using his refugee travel document to fly back to Africa for terrorism training while claiming that he wanted to visit Mecca.  Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a Somali refugee, plotted to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland in 2010.  "I want whoever is attending that event to leave, to leave dead or injured," he said.

John Bolton: Germany's Syrian Refugee Pledge Puts U.S. at Risk.  Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton warned that the large number of refugees going to Germany from Syria poses a terrorist threat to the United States.  Bolton cited the Lebanese education minister estimating that about 2 percent of the refugees could be Islamic terrorists.  "If you think of Germany, which said it would accept 800,000 refugees, 2 percent of that is 16,000 terrorists in Germany.  Once they get into Western Europe, the path to this country is obviously substantially easier," Bolton said at a Federalist Society event in Washington.

Time to Fight Back in the Holy War of Islamism.  Europe is inexplicably importing even more Muslims who proclaim openly that their ideology gives them the Allah-given right to kill, rob, rape, and/or enslave those not like themselves, including the wrong kinds of Muslims.  Germany is even evicting its own citizens from their apartments to make room for them.  You can take the Muslim out of the Islamic State but you cannot take the Islamic State out of the IS Muslim, as shown by the honor killing of a rape victim in Germany. The Obama Administration meanwhile wants to import hundreds if not thousands of school shootings, Fort Hood massacres, Boston Marathon bombings, and 9/11s waiting for times and places to happen.

Lots Of The Illegals Crossing Into Texas Are Coming From Terrorist Nations.  No, the border isn't secure.  A secure border would allow the U.S. government to decide who gets to come in and who doesn't.  And that's not what's going on.

Obama administration admitted 1,519 foreigners with terrorist ties into the U.S..  Judicial Watch reports that the Obama administration has granted asylum or residency to 1,519 foreigners with terrorist ties.  This information comes from an annual report to Congress by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  More than half of the terror supporters granted asylum or residency by Team Obama provided material support to terrorist organizations, according to the USCIS report.  Other received military-type training from a terrorist organization (nine fall into this category), voluntarily provided medical care to members of a terrorist group, or solicited funds or recruited individuals for membership in a terrorist organization.

U.S. Gives 1,519 Engaged in Terrorism "While Under Duress" Residency, Asylum.  As if the President Obama's sweeping amnesty measures haven't compromised national security enough, the administration let 1,519 "inadmissible" foreigners embroiled in terrorism into the U.S. last year because the crimes were committed "while under duress."  Before the Obama administration tweaked a federal law last year, these foreign nationals would have been banned from the country for supporting terrorist causes.  But under the changes the Secretary of Homeland Security has "discretionary authority" to waive certain grounds of inadmissibility relating to terrorism.

Islamic State Terrorists Caught Crossing Into Europe Posing As Refugees.  Five men have been arrested as they attempted to cross the Bulgarian-Macedonian border with decapitation videos and Islamic State propaganda on their phones.  The terrorist suspects had been posing as refugees.

The immigrant invasion no candidate is talking about.  With immigration front and center in the political debate, I've yet to hear any candidate address the significant threat to our national security otherwise known as importing hordes of Muslims.  Nor is anyone talking about the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into every arm of our government.  Why the silence on these matters of utmost importance?  Surely with a small group of candidates fearlessly bucking political correctness and the establishment, we should have at least a couple of them putting these issues front and center.  But no one is.

Chart Lists Terrorists in U.S. Due to Lax Immigration Policies.  Examples include a naturalized U.S. citizen from Somalia (Hinda Osman Dhirane) charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, a lawful permanent resident (Akhror Saidakhmetov) from Kazakhstan charged with conspiracy to provide material support to Al Qaeda in Iraq, a Yemeni national named Mufid A. Elfgeeh who also supported a foreign terrorist organization, possessed illegal firearms and attempted to kill U.S. government officers and a Syrian national named Mohamad Saeed Kodaimati who knowingly made false, fraudulently and fictitious statements to the FBI.  That's just a snippet of a long list of foreigners with terrorist ties who have been granted U.S. entry by the Obama administration.

'Immigrant': The New N-Word.  Did Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev swim across the Rio Grande to get to Boston?  Did Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez hire coyotes to sneak him across the border so he could shoot four Marines and a sailor in Chattanooga?  No.  Our government invited them in.

Arabic: Most Common Language of Refugees in America.  In light of the now-daily reports of jihad-related arrests in the US and the religiously-motivated bloodshed in Garland, Texas, Chattanooga, Tennessee and Boston, it is essential that we remember this April news report.  Arabic is the most common spoken language of refugees in America.  Which means that things are only getting worse.  Muslim immigration from jihad nations must be a top priority of the GOP presidential candidate who hopes to win the nom.

Top Immigration Agency Touts 'Path To Citizenship' As Means For Blunting Homegrown Terror.  The top U.S. immigration agency told a Senate subcommittee it is working to blunt homegrown terrorism by marketing U.S. citizenship to immigrants.  "In furtherance of DHS's mission to safeguard the homeland, [United States Citizenship and Immigration Services] is committed to fostering integration and community cohesion," the agency recently told the Immigration and the National Interest Subcommittee in records obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Mexican Cartels Smuggle Terrorists into U.S. Through Rural Texas Border Region.  Terrorists have entered the U.S. through Mexico for years and in fact, an internal Texas Department of Public Safety report leaked by the media months ago documents that several members of known Islamist terrorist organizations have been apprehended crossing the southern border in recent years.  Now they're also being smuggled in through border region airfields, according to [Judicial Watch]'s civilian, law enforcement and intelligence sources.

Exploding Muslim Immigration Overwhelms FBI.  The FBI failed to stop another terror attack, this time in Chattanooga, and the pressure building on the bureau from President Obama's reckless immigration policies may be reaching a boiling point, say security experts.  And the problem goes far beyond a loose border, where some 400,000 illegal aliens enter each year.  It's also the ease with which someone from a hostile Middle Eastern country can get a visa.  Under current U.S. immigration policy, an ISIS terrorist doesn't need to hop a fence or swim a river to reach America.  He can enter the U.S. legally as a student, as a skilled guest-worker, as a refugee, as an entrepreneur, or as a tourist — and fly here in the comfort of a jumbo jet.

White House Welcomes Terror Immigration to America.  Tennessee is to Muslim refugees as New York is to Muslim hijacked planes.  Chattanooga, the site of the latest Muslim terror attack against America, is a "preferred community" for resettlement along with Knoxville and Nashville.  Nashville was designated a "Gateway City" for Iraqis.  Hundreds of Somali Muslims were dumped in Shelbyville and the Murfreesboro Mega-Mosque became national news because of its terror ties.  Over the last decade, middle Tennessee's Muslim population tripled.  The rise of Islam in Tennessee as Muslims from terror zones like Iraq and Somalia flooded its towns and cities brought hate and violence.

How can we make it politically OK to talk about limiting Muslim immigration?  Let's be very direct:  a substantial minority of Muslims in the world support terrorism and genocide.  That has to be true for organizations like ISIS, the Taliban, Boko Haram, al-Qaeda, al-Shabaab, and so on to exist.  These are large organizations, and they cannot exist without members and supporters, most (but not all) of them from countries in the Middle East.  Does it make sense, then, that we allow immigration of Muslims into the U.S.?  Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez was a Muslim Palestinian immigrant from Kuwait.  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who bombed the Boston Marathon, was a Muslim immigrant from Kyrgyzstan.  They both killed many people.  And they are not the only ones.  Most Muslims we let into the United States will not become mass murderers.  But the problem is that a substantial minority of them sympathize with mass murderers, and some of those will go on to actually become mass murderers.  And the biggest point to make is that there is often no way for authorities to distinguish between a "conservative religious Muslim" and a "conservative religious Muslim who will commit mass murder."

Sessions: We Need Less Immigration, More Assimilation.  The terror attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee carried out by an Islamic immigrant from Kuwait has cast new attention on the inability of the United States to properly screen the 100,000 Middle Eastern immigrants added to the United States each year, as well as the tens of thousands of additional Muslim youth admitted as foreign students.

Immigration to Swell U.S. Muslim Population to 6.2 Million.  The Associated Press and NBC are now reporting that Tennessee gunman Muhammed Youssef Abdulazees was an immigrant from the Muslim nation of Kuwait.  According to U.S. Census Data, the United States admits roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants legally each year, representing the fastest growing block of immigration into the United States.  Tennessee, in fact, is home to one of the fastest growing immigrant populations in the country, causing the President to give a recent speech there in favor of expansive immigration.

Walker: We'd Be Sending in Navy to Stop Illegals if They Were Swarming Our Sea Ports Like They Do Southern Border.  Republican Party 2016 primary frontrunner Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told Breitbart News exclusively that if the invasion of illegal aliens that's currently swarming across America's southern border were coming in via America's sea ports, the government would be sending in the Navy to stop it.  Instead, the federal government — despite not having to at all — chooses, he says, to leave the U.S. border with Mexico wide open.

1.6 Million Immigrants from Predominantly Muslim Countries Since 9/11.  How many people in this country are aware of the fact that immigration from Islamic countries has doubled since 9/11?  According to data Conservative Review collated from the DHS Yearbook of Immigration Statistics, the U.S. has issued 1,628,854 green cards to immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries from 2001-2013.

Obama DHS busted shipping busloads of Somali Muslims into California.  Caught on video, a driver for a DHS transport bus told some folks at a California gas station that he was transporting Somali and African immigrants to detention centers in Victorville, CA.  #vc

DHS records describe Mexican government helicopters entering US, firing on Border Patrol.  How is this not a huge story?  Well, we know why it's not a huge story.  This sort of thing throws a wrench into the current illegal immigration narrative.  Specifically that we as Americans should't be concerned with what is happening along our southern border.

Concerns Of Muslim Immigration Surge Into Western World Come Into Focus.  The Muslim immigration warnings offered by Dutch politician Geert Wilders — who was in the facility in Garland, Texas, that was attacked by terrorists last weekend — seem to be coming true.  Wilders, who has asked his own parliament to hold an exhibition on the Muhammed cartoons from the Garland, Texas event, has warned frequently that high levels of Muslim immigration without assimilation to the Western world — Europe and the United States of America — are dangerous to the culture and values of the West.

Reports, Terrorist Acts Corroborate ISIS in Mexico Story JW Broke Last Month.  A number of reports have surfaced in the last few weeks that corroborate a story Judicial Watch broke in mid-April verifying that ISIS is operating in a Mexican border town just eight miles from El Paso, Texas. [...] JW's report was based on intelligence from a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police inspector and was met with denials from both the U.S. and Mexican government as well as skepticism from the mainstream media in both countries.

Obama State Dept. Shipping Thousands of Potential ISIS Members to Idaho and South Carolina.  [President Barack H.] Obama is sending hundreds of Muslims into the USA under the claim that they are refugees, a report finds.  Apparently Idaho and South Carolina are the areas the State Department has targeted for up to 2,000 Syrian refugees.

Judicial Watch Pinch-Hitting for the FBI.  Despite the growing menace and media savvy of the terrorist Islamic group ISIS, the FBI appears to be, once again, failing in its investigative and enforcement responsibilities.  The agency that let us down with 9/11 and, afterward, reacted mainly in a flurry of political correctness and appeasement toward Muslims is now trying to reassure the American public that we have nothing to fear from ISIS on the North American continent.  This despite warnings from the nonprofit Judicial Watch of ISIS activism in Mexico, and recent ISIS-related arrests in Minnesota.  More is needed from the nation's top domestic intelligence and security agency than this whistling in the dark if we are to be safe in our own country.

Video: Franklin Graham Calls on U.S. to Halt All Immigration of Muslims Coming from Countries with Islamic Terror Cells.  Reverend Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and CEO of Samaritan's Purse, has called on the United States government to "stop allowing immigration of Muslims into this country."  "Each day's news seems to reveal new horrors from militant Islam," Graham said Monday [4/20/2015] in a post on Facebook.  "Can it be that the world is no longer as shocked by Christians having their heads cut off and then ISIS proudly promoting this on video?  We should continue to be horrified and nauseated."  "We should make sure our government and the current administration recognizes Islam for the danger it is, and that they are doing all they can to work against it," he said.

An Invasion of Refugees.  The invasion is a silent and secret one.  The soldiers come as refugees funneled through ratlines run by liberal churches and other pseudo-religious organizations.  Tens of thousands of Muslim migrants come from conflict zones to small towns and cities across the country just like Spartanburg each year.  But Spartanburg's fighting spirit is still alive and Congressman Trey Gowdy, who represents the Spartanburg area, has challenged a plan to dump migrants, including possibly Syrians, there, inquiring whether they have criminal records and what background checks have been performed on them.

Another Reason To Get Serious About Our Unguarded Border.  Judicial Watch reports that two Mexican officials — a field grade military officer and a federal police officer — have anonymously told them that IS terrorists have set up a camp outside Juarez, in Mexico's Chihuahua state, in a region eight miles from the U.S. border known as "Anapra."  Mexican officials deny it, U.S. law enforcement agencies more tentatively call it "unsubstantiated."  But it underlines that our border is still unguarded even after last summer's human waves of illegal immigration from Central America, significant U.S. interests — from oil installations to the Fort Bliss military base — are vulnerable.  Our enemies are still plotting against us.

IS Sets Up Camp Within A Few Miles Of Texas Border.  No sooner had President Obama gutted border enforcement than the Islamic State built a Mexican training camp just a few miles from Texas.  Did Obama doubt IS would take advantage of his immigration policies?  If he did, he is dangerously naive.  But we do not see how he could have been so clueless.  There were plenty of warnings that IS was targeting the border, and they emerged even as he was putting the final touches on his executive amnesty scheme.

ISIS Camp a Few Miles from Texas, Mexican Authorities Confirm.  ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.  The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as "Anapra" situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.  Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

Obama Has Allowed 600,000 'Unscreened' Immigrants from Dangerous Muslim Nations to Enter USA.  Obama likes to pretend he has kept the nation safe and is quick to remind everyone that "he" killed bin Laden.  But with this huge flood of immigrants from dangerous Muslim nations, it is clear he's opened the gate for terrorists to flood our nation.

Megyn Kelly Grills Jindal on His Proposal to Restrict Muslim Immigration to U.S..  Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) has generated controversy for himself, yet again, by proposing that the U.S. government reform immigration laws to actively exclude Muslims who might potentially "want to come and try to impose some variant of Sharia law."  On Wednesday evening [3/18/2015], Fox's Megyn Kelly pressed the governor a bit on whether such ideas violate fundamental American principles.  In recent months, Jindal has described Muslim immigration as an "invasion" of sorts.  His recent suggestion on federal policy, however, has drawn the ire of Muslim-American advocacy groups alleging that he is attempting to "pander to society's margins" to regain points in GOP primary polling.

How and Why ISIS Will Use Texas to Enter the US.  [Scroll down]  To be specific, foreign terrorists would likely enter the U.S. through Texas because the behavior of the transnational criminal groups we more commonly call the Gulf cartel and the Zetas cartel routinely indicate that they are more interested in short-term gains and profit-making than long-term profit sustainability, unlike the various other transnational criminal groups that align themselves under the banner of the Sinaloa Federation.  A willingness to accept a large sum of money from a terrorist or group, regardless of the fact that it would lead to a temporary shutdown of the U.S.-Mexico border in the area where the illegal crossing occurred, would be necessary on the part of a specific cartel in order for them to allow such a crossing — and crossings rarely occur unless a cartel allows it.

General: IS Recruits Could Enter U.S. Via Caribbean.  The head of U.S. Southern Command has warned lawmakers that IS is radicalizing converts and other Muslims in Latin America and could train and send them north via human traffickers.  Gen. John Kelly issued his warning in a hearing Thursday [3/12/2015] before the Senate Armed Services Committee on defense appropriations for fiscal 2016.  He's concerned that in addition to the Iranian terrorist puppet Hezbollah being active in Latin America, the Islamic State is promoting and recruiting for jihad against the United States in the region.

What Are You Really Willing to Do to Stop Terrorists From Entering the U.S.?  For all too many of our leaders, while they claim that they would stop at nothing to protect America and Americans, the reality is far different. [...] It is inconceivable that any politician would not want to prevent terrorists from entering the United States and launching deadly terrorist attacks.  However, the failures of our immigration system undeniably enable international terrorists to enter the United States and, indeed, facilitates their ability to hide in plain sight and embed themselves in communities across our nation as they go about their deadly preparations to launch an attack.  There is nothing in any proposed legislation that addresses or remedies these critical failures in the immigration system.

Muslim Immigration Poses Serious National Security Threat.  Between 2010 and 2013, the Obama administration imported almost 300,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations — more immigrants than the U.S. let in from Central America and Mexico combined over that period.  This is a sea change in immigration flows, and it threatens national security.  Many of the recent Muslim immigrants are from terrorist hot spots like Iraq, where the Islamic State operates.  From 2010-2013, Obama ushered in 41,094 Iraqi nationals from there.  Now the State Department says it will quadruple the number of refugees brought here from Syria, where IS is headquartered.

The U.S. is admitting too many immigrants from high-risk countries.  There are several documented instances of Somalis who, given safe haven by our country, left America to join and fight with al-Shabaab in Somalia, that lawless and lost land, and even with ISIS in Syria and Iraq.  Liban Haji Mohamed, a former Somali refugee who later naturalized, is the most recent addition to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list, for his activities in support of al-Shabaab and al-Qaeda.  One of the Kenya mall attackers was a former refugee who had lived in Minnesota.  Unfortunately, turncoat Somalis are not alone, as refugee communities go.

Border Patrol Agents Catch Middle Eastern Man Sneaking into Texas.  Border Patrol agents arrested a Middle-Eastern man as he tried to sneak into Texas by illegally crossing the border.  The man's country of origin was not readily available.  The arrest took place earlier this week just south of the border city of Pharr, where an agent took into custody a man from a Middle Eastern country, a border patrol spokesman confirmed to Breitbart Texas.

Obama Spokesman: Amnesty Is More Important Than Homeland Security.  President Barack Obama won't trim his unilateral amnesty, even by a tiny bit, to get a compromise that would allow bipartisan funding for the Department of Homeland Security, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Thursday [1/29/2015].  "Will the president change that executive action in any way in order to secure funding for the Department of Homeland Security?" a reporter asked Earnest.  "No, its not going to happen," Earnest replied.

Lawmakers fear US visa program could be exploited by foreign fighters.  The Visa Waiver Program allows travelers from 38 countries, including France and many other European and Asian nations, to enter the U.S. without a visa for stays up to 90 days.  American travelers enjoy a similar privilege across Europe and elsewhere.  But lawmakers are taking a close look at the program, particularly as new cases emerge of Europeans becoming radicalized in the Middle East and returning to wreak terror on their homeland.

DHS Arrested 1,191 Illegals in 2014 From Countries With Terrorism Problems.  The Department of Homeland Security's Customs and Border Protection reports that in fiscal year 2014 (Oct. 1 through Sept. 30) agents apprehended 1,191 individuals from 12 of the 14 countries that DHS and the State Department have considered as countries that have problems with terrorism.  In December, CBP released its apprehension statistics for 2014, which show that of the 486,651 apprehensions, 257,473 were from countries "other than Mexico."  Of those apprehended from countries "other than Mexico," CBP provided CNSNews.com the countries of origin of those taken into custody.

Leaked Docs: USA Vulnerable to Criminals, Terrorists Entering Without Scrutiny After Obama Exec Amnesty.  Under the executive amnesty immigration action from President Barack Obama, internal administration documents show the administration is considering allowing terrorists, transnational criminals, and anyone else who wants to enter or stay inside the United States to not even answer if they've ever been connected with a crime.  The internal Obama administration documents, obtained by Breitbart News through a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) source, include a draft application for illegal immigrants seeking to stay in the country and future prospective immigrants seeking to the enter the country.

Jeh Johnson Thinks Turkish Terrorists Crossing Our Border Illegally Is Ok If They're Kurds.  The Washington Times reported that four Turkish terrorists were caught in Texas after being smuggled across our border for a mere $8000.  Secretary Jeh Johnson's response is they were Kurds and are on the same side as we are. [...] Why would Kurds fly here?  What is their purpose?  In any case, the bottom line which Johnson seems to be missing is that it's illegal.

4 Turkish terrorists caught in Texas after being smuggled across border.  Four men flew from Istanbul through Paris to Mexico City in late August, where they were met by a Turkish-speaking man who stashed them in a safe house until their Sept. 3 attempt to cross into the U.S. over the border with Mexico.  Their capture by the Border Patrol in Texas set off a fierce debate over the men's intentions, with some members of Congress saying they were terrorist fighters.  Homeland Security officials, including Secretary Jeh Johnson, countered that they were part of the Kurdish resistance which, like the U.S., is fighting the Islamic State's advance in Iraq.

Leaked DHS Report Reveals 13 Foreign Suspected Terrorists Illegally Entered Canada from US.  The data pertains only to one small region of the vast U.S.-Canadian border.  The report reveals that as of September 9, 2014, there have been 155 encounters in the area "involving 344 ethnic Somalis, 21 ethnic Ethiopians, five ethnic Kenyans, two ethnic Djiboutians, two ethnic Nigerians, and one ethnic Sudanese and Congolese subjects who have attempted or succeeded in entering Canada illegally near the Pembina, ND Port of Entry (POE) since June 2010.  These encounters include 13 subjects with terrorist-related records who have utilized this method of circumventing designated POEs."

Jeh Johnson: Americans 'Susceptible to Claims That We Have an Open, Porous Border'.  The nation's southern border is much more secure than the American people think it is, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told a gathering in Washington on Thursday [10/9/2014].  "Not enough has been said publicly by our government in a clear, concise way, about our border security efforts on behalf of the American people.  And in the absence of facts, the American public is susceptible to claims that we have an open, porous border, through which unaccompanied minors and members of terrorist organizations such as ISIL may pass."

Judicial Watch Confirms: Four ISIS Terrorists Arrested in Texas in Last 36 Hours — And Homeland Security Is Lying.  After Congressman Duncan Hunter went on Fox News and delivered this initial story the mainstream legacy news and the Obama administration went into a full court press to refute him.  The denials by DHS are absolute lies and we'll outline the proof in that regard.

FBI Should Arrest, Not 'Track,' American Jihadis.  Though they've given material assistance to terrorists by fighting for the Islamic State, which is a federal crime, the FBI director says American jihadis are "entitled" to come home and move about freely.  FBI Director James Comey told Scott Pelley on CBS' "60 Minutes" Sunday that we know who the dozen or so Americans fighting with the Islamic State are, but we can't do much more than follow them around if they decide to return to the U.S.  In the aftermath of 9/11, and in the face of IS atrocities and threats, this is an appalling statement.

Confirmed: 4 ISIS terrorists apprehended at southern border in last 36 hours.  Agents with the US Customs and Border Protection service have been complaining for years about our porous southern border.  Unlike the rest of DHS immigration agencies, they have been vocal about enforcing border security.  Perhaps the entry of these terrorists was the last straw.

California congressman claims 'at least ten ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the Mexican border in Texas'.  A California Congressman claimed Tuesday that the Islamist terror group occupying the White House's attention in the Middle East is quietly slipping into the United States through its porous southern border — and that American border patrol agents have already captured ten of its soldiers.  Republican Duncan Hunter told a Fox News Channel audience that ISIS, the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, is actively infiltrating the U.S.

Report: Nearly 2.5 Million Immigrants From 'Predominantly Muslim Countries' Reside Inside U.S. Right Now.  In 2000, there were 1,518,755 immigrants from Muslim countries in the U.S. In 2010, That number stood at 2,184,664, and in 2013 it stands at 2,480,407.  Between 2010 and 2013, there was actually a greater increase in the number of immigrants from the Middle East than from Central America.  During that timeframe, 207,758 more immigrants moved to the U.S. from the Middle East, whereas only 113,744 immigrants came from Central America.

Letting in the Wrong Refugees.  Fresh terror busts in Australia expose a common Achilles' heel of the West:  Indiscriminate refugee policies turn free countries into breeding grounds for jihad.  It's the same game in America.  Soldiers of Islam have weaponized our blind generosity against us.  In Sydney this week, authorities detained a half-dozen Muslim plotters and arrested a top collaborator in an alleged conspiracy to kidnap and behead a random Australian citizen.  The accused mastermind?  Afghan refugee turned Aussie Islamic State recruiter Mohammad Ali Baryalei.  He and his aristocratic family were welcomed Down Under decades ago.  Baryalei returned the favor by taking to the streets of Sydney to recruit and radicalize dozens of fellow Muslim immigrants or their children.

The Anti-Terrorism Bloviators.  Summits and community organizing won't deter jihadists who are threatening to raise the black flag of the Islamic State over the White House.  But here are steps that actually would.  I've already urged revoking passports of Americans fighting for ISIS, reversing the administration's dangerous new policy of welcoming asylum seekers who've provided only "limited material support" to terrorists, outlawing visas to "study" at unaccredited institutions (visa mills), and cracking down on visa overstaying.  There is strong support in Congress for revoking passports, and bills have been introduced in the House and Senate to do so.  But the administration is stalling.

Obama Allowing the UN to Dump Hundreds of Thousands of Syrian Muslims in America.  Since the early 90s, the UN high commissioner for refugees has selected 200,000 to 250,000 refugees from Islamic countries to send to the U.S. Most come from Somalia and Iraq, and Obama has prepared for months to dump hundreds of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees on American cities, just like our new illegal alien neighbors from our Southern border.

Obama Admin Threatening to ARREST Agents Warning of Terrorist Attack at Border.  Federal officials have threatened law enforcement agents with termination and criminal prosecution for leaking information about the threat of terrorist attacks near the Texas-Mexico border, according to a new report.  The government watchdog organization Judicial Watch (JW) says that after it reported on the possibility of radical Islamic terrorists in Juarez, Mexico — just across the border from El Paso — a memo containing warning agents about leaking information "came down through the chain of command."

The spread of Rocky Mountain jihad.  Obama administration officials are vehemently denying plots by ISIS operatives to cross our borders.  But the lesson here is clear:  Thanks to laptop recruitment, reckless visa policies and homegrown treachery, the U.S.-based jihad export-import business is and has been thriving.

Whatever happened to Yes We Can!?
Homeland Security: We can't stop ISIS from coming into US.  Homeland Security officials warned Wednesday they don't have a full picture of the Americans and Europeans heading to Syria to train with ISIS and therefore can't stop them from coming into the US.  "We don't have a fulsome picture in all cases," said Jennifer Lasley, a deputy undersecretary at the Department of Homeland Security.  "It does concern us," added Troy Miller, an acting assistant commissioner with US Customs and Border Protection.

Easy Visas, Lax Immigration Enforcement And Terrorists.  It's up to Congress to act on this urgent issue.  Congress should reverse Obama's dangerous new policy of granting asylum to people with terrorist connections.  Federal law bars it, but on Feb. 5, the administration went around Congress and loosened the law to welcome asylum seekers who have provided only "limited material support" to terrorists.  Next, Congress should outlaw visas to "study" at unaccredited institutions, which often are nothing more than visa mills.  Finally, Congress needs to crack down on overstaying visas.  Five of the 19 9/11 hijackers had overstayed tourist visas, and another was on a student visa.

If There's No Imminent Threat To Our Southern Border, Why Is Ft. Bliss Stepping Up Security?  Just hours before the start of the Labor Day weekend, Judicial Watch learned through a network of sensitive sources that an operational element of the terror army "ISIS" was active in the Mexican border city of Juarez — a stone's throw across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas.  According to our well-sourced information, the Juarez ISIS element is planning an imminent terror strike somewhere on the border.  Our sources warned that a car or other vehicle-type bomb attack was planned.  We learned that the warnings merited briefing the commanding general of Fort Bliss — the massive US Army post in El Paso.

ICE Released 169 Illegal Aliens Convicted of 'Homicide-Related' Crimes.  In the midst of the summer recess, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) issued a press release on Aug. 21 concerning a letter he wrote to the Department of Homeland Security seeking details about the release of 36,007 illegal aliens last year who had been convicted of a crime and were released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) while awaiting deportation proceedings.  The June 9 inquiry, addressed to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, led to the revelation that of those thousands released, 169 had been convicted of "homicide-related" offenses.

Watchdog: Fed's denial of Islamic State Mexico threat 'so dishonest'.  The federal government believes a terrorist attack at the U.S.-Mexico border is imminent and has put out a bulletin on the matter, a government watchdog group reported Friday [8/29/2014].  Judicial Watch released a statement that said Islamic terrorist groups who have infiltrated the city of Ciudad Juarez aim to use car bombs to attack American interests.

Judicial Watch: Feds' Bulletin Describes Threat of Imminent Terrorist Attack on Southern Border.  For those of us who've been raising alarms about both the jihadist threat and the national-security vulnerability created by the Obama administration's non-enforcement of the immigration laws, this is not a surprise — particularly less than two weeks before September 11.  But it is nonetheless jarring to read.

Breitbart Texas Verifies ISIS Border Threat With Leaked Doc.  Breitbart Texas has exclusively obtained a leaked document warning federal agents about an ISIS-related terrorism threat across the entire US-Mexico border.  Though the document focuses on the Texas-Mexico border, Breitbart Texas has confirmed that federal agents across the entire US-Mexico border have received the ISIS terror warning.

South Texas Rancher Says Numbers of Illegals Are 'Overwhelming' on His Land.  We hear that the border flood of illegal aliens has slowed down somewhat because of the summer's brutal heat.  But the lower Rio Grande Valley is still quite busy, including diverse lawbreakers from around the world.  Breitbart reported on Aug 3 that illegals from more than 75 countries have crossed the open border.  Does nobody in Washington care about the national security threat?

Leaked CBP Report Shows Entire World Exploiting Open US Border.  A leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries.  The report was obtained by a trusted source within the CBP agency who leaked the document and spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity.

Rick Perry: Record Number of Illegals from Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan Being Caught at Border.  Texas Governor Rick Perry said a record number of illegal immigrants from Syria, Pakistan and Afghanistan have been apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border.  On Sunday's [8/3/2014] State of the Union on CNN, Perry said the "historic record highs" of individuals from "countries that have substantial terrorist ties" threaten America's national security.  Later on the program, Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX), the House Homeland Security Committee Chair, said Iranian terrorists have had plans to sneak across the border.  He also said that others who want to do harm are seeking to exploit America's porous border.

Border agents: 'This is the dream of every terrorist in the world'.  The vice president of the National Border Patrol Council says the current border crisis is "the dream of every terrorist in the world," with illegal immigrants being able to board American jetliners without proper identification.  The union, which represents thousands of Border Patrol agents, has accused the Transportation Security Administration of letting illegals board American jetliners with only a "Notice to Appear" document — a claim the federal agency strongly denies, Fox News reported.  "This is a document that could easily be forged," union vice president Shawn Moran told Fox News.  "It is simply a computer printout with a name on it.  "This is the dream of every terrorist in the world," he said.  "There is no way of knowing who is on board the jetliners."

Open Borders or Open Society?  Anyone concerned about the survival of the greatest nation on earth knows that our national sovereignty depends in part on knowing who is coming in to the country, having defined borders and laws pertaining to immigration enforced.  Anyone interested in open borders and challenging immigration law that sets definitions and restrictions therefore, either doesn't understand the consequences, or knows [quite] well that the nation will not survive — and that ideologically-driven person is our nation's enemy.

Sessions To Congress: Back Ted Cruz Or Remain 'Complicit' In 'Nullification Of Border'.  Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and a key immigration hawk, took to the Senate floor on Monday afternoon [7/21/2014] to attack the efforts by President Barack Obama to grant amnesty via executive order to millions of illegal aliens.  During his floor speech, Sessions endorsed a bill from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that aims to curb the president's executive amnesty efforts — and called on his colleagues to cosponsor it.

Top General Says Mexico Border Security Now 'Existential' Threat to U.S..  A top United States general in charge of protecting the southern border says he's been unable to combat the steady flow of illegal drugs, weapons and people from Central America, and is looking to Congress for urgent help.  Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command, has asked Congress this year for more money, drones and ships for his mission — a request unlikely to be met.  Since October, an influx of nearly 100,000 migrants has made the dangerous journey north from Latin America to the United States border.  Most are children, and three-quarters of the unaccompanied minors have traveled thousands of miles from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

Muslim Prayer Rug Found on Arizona Border By Independendent [sic] American Security Contractors.  Matthew Leber spokesman for the American Patriot, Three Percent, sent Breitbart News photos of what American security contractors on the ground believe is a Muslim prayer rug found near the border in Arizona last week.  A member of the security team spoke with Breitbart News on Monday night [7/7/2014] saying they were on patrol right along the border came down into a wash and the area were working in just south of Sierra Vista in Coronado national forest.

What a Woman Found Outside a Texas Walmart Should Alarm You.  This brings up a lot of alarming questions that compound the situation on the border even more.  For one, why are there no reports on foreign nationals other than Mexicans and South Americans being reported in the flow of illegal immigration?  Walmart provided thousands of pairs of underwear, men's sizes 3x,4x, and XXL, in a donation to DHS.  They want us to believe that children and women comprise the bulk of illegal immigrants, but that is what was requested by DHS.  This inconsistency by the government has even sparked the ongoing underwear protest.  Why is the media only reporting children and women?  There is ample evidence to the contrary.

Immigration Criminal Voted for Gun Ban.  One of the chief concerns of America's Founders in the early days of the Republic was the possibility that foreigners would usurp American political power. [...] The possibility that foreigners might gain political power and subvert traditional American values is even more acute in today's climate of mass illegal immigration.  The latest case in point is that of former New York State Assemblywoman Gabriela Rosa, a Democrat, who pled guilty last week to immigration fraud charges that could land her in federal prison for up to ten years.

Crisis Leaves 'Vast Swaths' Of Border Unprotected, Cartels 'In Control'.  The massive influx of adults and minors crossing into the U.S. from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador has brought the Customs and Border Protection agency (CPB) past its capacity to provide security at the U.S./Mexico border, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). [...] "Mexican cartels are exploiting this crisis to get their shipments through.  They know our schedules, our shifts, our manpower, and how we react to these situations," said [NBPC] Vice President [Shawn] Moran.

Sheriffs' Association: Release Of Convicted Immigrants 'Unacceptable'.  The release of criminal immigrants awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings is "unacceptable," according to a sheriffs' association involved in discussions with the Obama administration about immigration reform.  In a letter this week to Department of Homeland Security Sec. Jeh Johnson, the Major County Sheriffs' Association — a group of elected sheriffs representing about 80 of the largest counties in the U.S. — expressed dismay at the Obama administration's release of criminal immigrants awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings.

Boehner: Obama move on N.M. monument could thwart immigration reform.  President Obama's new national monument in New Mexico, which he announced Wednesday, thrilled environmentalists, who said it preserves nearly 500,000 acres of spectacular and pristine lands, but it could also doom his hopes of getting Congress to pass an immigration bill this year.  House Speaker John A. Boehner said the president's unilateral move is exactly the type of action the GOP has been warning against, adding it shows the president isn't serious about enforcing border security.  Mr. Boehner has repeatedly said Republicans are reluctant to trust that the president will take seriously border security and immigration enforcement as part of a "comprehensive" deal that also would include the path to citizenship that Democrats prize.

Lawless Order Is How This White House Always Operates.  Of course, the president infamously refuses to enforce ObamaCare's mandates, and his Justice Department unconstitutionally eavesdrops on journalists, but there really is contempt for the law in most places you look within the executive branch.  An Immigration and Customs Enforcement document obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies last week revealed the release of over 36,000 aliens convicted of close to 88,000 crimes, including homicide, violent sex crimes and kidnapping.  On Wednesday [5/21/2014], taking a page from Bill Clinton, President Obama will nationalize about a half million acres of New Mexico bordering Mexico as the new Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument, infuriating local police who warn that Mexican drug cartels will use it as "a pathway for criminals to get into this country to do their criminal acts," as Dona Ana County Sheriff Todd Garrison told the Washington Times.

Republicans, Local Sheriff Warn Border Wilderness Zone Will Create Vast Drug Corridor.  A pending proposal from President Obama to create a vast new wilderness area on the U.S.-Mexico border is drawing criticism from Republican lawmakers and local law enforcement officials who say it would significantly impede border security.  The Obama administration is set to designate a 600,000 acre national monument in south-central New Mexico to be managed and controlled by the Bureau of Land Management, a federal agency.  The designated land will be called the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument, and environmentalists have long[ ]sought the designation.

Large Group Plans Mass Illegal Crossing Into Texas.  KGRV in McAllen reports that officers from several local law enforcement agencies have personnel on the Hidalgo International Bridge this afternoon.  They are there due to reports that a large group of individuals, said to be between 300 and 1,000 people, is in Reynosa, Mexico, across the Rio Grande from McAllen, Texas.

Senators Denounce Obama for Threatening 'Entire Constitutional System' By 'Nullifying' Immigration Laws.  On Thursday [4/24/2014], 22 Republican senators, including even Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), denounced President Barack Obama in a scathing letter for threatening America's "entire constitutional system" with his immigration "enforcement review" that threatens to "nullify" the nation's immigration laws.  "Your actions demonstrate an astonishing disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the rights of American citizens and legal residents," the senators wrote in a letter to Obama.  "Our entire constitutional system is threatened when the Executive Branch suspends the law at its whim and our nation's sovereignty is imperiled when the commander-in-chief refuses to defend the integrity of its borders."

Sen. Sessions: 'Deliberate Plan by President' to Collapse U.S. Law Enforcement System.  Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said today that Americans need to stand up to "a deliberate plan by the president of the United States" to collapse the nation's law enforcement system regarding illegal immigration.  "Our law enforcement system is in a state of collapse, and it's a deliberate plan by the president of the United States, and it's wrong.  And, people need to be aware of it and need to stand up to it and I believe the American people are beginning to do so."  Sen. Sessions rebuked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Vice President Joe Biden for their pro-amnesty efforts:  "So, you come into the country illegally and the attorney general of the United States declares that these individuals have a civil right to amnesty.  How can this possibly be:  the chief law enforcement officer in America?"

Border Patrol Shifted $7M From Border Fence to Salaries.  As sequestration bore down in February 2013, the threat of furloughs for thousands of government workers was a common refrain from those warning of the dire effects of the across the board budget cuts. [...] As it turned out, DHS did not furlough any personnel, but rather relied on cuts to other areas and shifting funds from other budgets to cover salaries.  For instance, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shifted $7 million from its border security fencing account to salaries and expenses.

News Flash: Immigration Must Benefit the Host Nation.  A root factor of the April 15th bombing in Boston is the self-destructive immigration policy of the United States, which willingly allows the infiltration of those either dedicated to or susceptible to being converted to the tenets and tactics of radical Islam.  Yet, despite the ongoing theatre in Washington D.C. regarding immigration reform, there is no effort to correct this glaring gap.  Instead, virtually all the national attention has turned to granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants before the border is fully secured.  Additionally, hidden within the legislation is a provision which establishes preferred status to those seeking to come to the United States from nations harboring active Jihadist movements such as Chechnya and Pakistan.

Muslim Marathon Massacre Terrorists Were Admitted to US as Refugees.  There are numerous lessons to take away from the Marathon Massacre, but one of these is that it's time to rethink our immigration policy, especially when it comes to refugees.  The Tsarnaevs came to the United States as refugees.  And like so many other Muslim refugees, they brought terror to our shores.

Holder Admits 'National Security Crisis Along Our Southwest Border'.  There is a "national security crisis" along the U.S.-Mexico border, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, head of Obama's Department of Justice (DOJ), told lawmakers on Thursday.  Nevertheless, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has said that the southwest border is "as secure now as it has ever been" due to the Obama administration efforts.

The Arizona Fires and the Border.  The three recent fires in Southern Arizona once again bring the issue of border security to the forefront.  These fires are an exemplary example of how the border is not secure.  Experts and residents in the area interviewed by American Thinker are in complete agreement that all of these fires were set by people and that at least one, possibly all of the fires, were started by illegal immigrants.

663 Illegal Aliens From Countries With Ties to Terrorism Arrested.  Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), speaking at a conference on border issues Thursday [3/17/2011], said 663 individuals arrested along the southwest border in 2010 were from countries designated as "special interest" or from countries known to have ties with terrorism.  "It's not just that we're seeing immigration across our southern border from countries like Mexico — people seeking to work and provide for their families," said Cornyn, a member of the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on homeland security and terrorism.  "Indeed in the last year alone — where 445,000 individuals were detained at the southwest border — 59,000 came from countries other than Mexico.

Yes, Islamists Are Coming Through Mexico.  On January 11, U.S. Border Patrol agents pulled over a BMW near the Golden Acorn Casino, 50 miles east of San Diego, California.  The vehicle was driven by Kenneth R. Lawler.  Border Patrol agents found Lawler had tucked away in the trunk of his car a souvenir of sorts from Mexico:  a radical Muslim cleric by the name of Said Jaziri.  Lawler was arrested and is being held on charges of alien smuggling, while Jaziri is being held for illegally entering the country as well as being a material witness to the crime.

Terrorists crossing AZ border into U.S.?  On a single day in April, in a special cell block deep inside the Pinal County Jail, nearly 400 inmates sat awaiting trial or extradition after being detained trying to cross the Arizona border from Mexico.  Only about half of them were actually from Mexico. ... On that one day in April, according to records obtained by [KNXV-TV], Homeland Security officials were holding inmates from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Lebanon, and the Sudan.

ICE Busts California Flight School in Massive Visa Fraud Scheme.  The former owners of a California flight school have pleaded guilty in a massive visa fraud scheme in which they hired illegal immigrants as flight instructors — a scam that immigration officials say posed a "significant" threat to national security.

Bordering Disaster.  [Scroll down]  As illegal armed groups plot to blow up infrastructure even in this country, Democrats in Congress are more concerned about an illegal immigrant getting his feelings hurt if a police officer in Arizona asks him to show some ID.  Such distractions create opportunities for Mexico's already-odious drug traffickers to be even more ambitious.  The developments from Mexico parallel what happened in Colombia in the 1980s and 1990s, before that country got a grip on how to defeat drug lords.

Amnesty Will Legalize More Terrorists.  Shocking revelations continue in the wake of the failed terrorist attack on Times Square as we're informed by our government that Faisal Shahzad — the Pakistani-born terrorist responsible for the attack — was awarded American citizenship last year.  This latest disclosure exposes gaping security holes in our legal immigration system.  Now image what granting amnesty to the estimated 12-20 million illegal aliens in the country will do to the system.

Border checks limited to speed traffic.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Texas have been ordered to abbreviate national security checks at one of the nation"s busiest ports of entry to speed up travel between the United States and Mexico, according to official documents and multiple interviews with agents.

7,000 Iraqi refugees allowed to enter the US.  The United States agreed yesterday [2/14/2007] to allow up to 7,000 Iraqi refugees to enter the country, greatly expanding the number allowed until now.  It also agreed to pay more to help Iraq's Arab neighbors cope with the human tide fleeing increasing violence and economic hardship in their country.  The decision for this fiscal year came after mounting political and diplomatic pressure on the Bush administration to do more to remedy the consequences of a war it largely started.  Only 202 Iraqis were allowed in last year.

71% Say Immigration is a Threat to the U.S.  A national poll commissioned by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and conducted by Susquehanna Polling and Research shows that five years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Americans are more aware of people from foreign countries and believe illegal immigrants pose a threat to the United States, particularly as terrorists.

Left-Wing Extremists Want to 'Reconquista' Southwest .  [Olin] Tezcatlitoca is the leader of a tiny group called the "Mexica Movement," which advocates on behalf of "indigenous Americans," or those people without European ancestry.  "Kind of like the Jews wanted to take their land back after 2,000 years," said Tezcatlitoca.  "We're saying we lost this land 150 years ago in a clearly unjust war, in a clearly racist war against our people."

U.S. admits nearly 10,000 from "terrorism" states.  Nearly 10,000 people from countries designated as sponsors of terrorism have entered the United States under an immigration diversity program with relatively few restrictions, a report released on Friday [9/21/2007] said.  The report quoted a U.S. security officer in Turkey as saying it would be possible for Iranian intelligence officers to pose as applicants and not be detected if their identities were not already known to U.S. intelligence.

"American" Jihad, Courtesy of the Open Borders Lobby.  Most of the mainstream media have grudgingly reported that three of the six Muslim extremists arrested Tuesday [5/8/2007] for plotting to attack Fort Dix are illegal aliens.  Agents are now investigating whether they were smuggled across the border — and whether the others lied on their immigration papers to stay in the country.  However, not one major outlet has mentioned the fact that the ACLU, People for the American Way, and other pillars of the Open Borders Lobby opened a major battlefront in the jihadists' backyard in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, to prevent city officials from evicting illegals like them.

Brothers Charged in Terror Plot Lived Illegally in U.S. for 23 Years.  Three brothers charged in the alleged Fort Dix terror plot have been living illegally in the U.S. for more than 23 years and were accepted as Americans by neighbors and friends who had no idea they would scheme to attack military bases and slaughter GIs.

The Real Illegal Alien Threat:  As details emerge from the plot to kill American soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey, one thing is clear.  The United States may have more of a homegrown terrorist problem than some people imagine.

Political Correctness Will End Up Killing Us.  It boggles the mind that a nearly 1,000-page behemoth immigration proposal — the first major immigration reform legislation in a generation, and the first since the September 11th attack — has virtually nothing to say about addressing possible terrorist threats.  But the inadequacy of proposed immigration reforms is only part of the crisis.  As a new Pew Research Center poll makes clear, America faces a potentially greater problem:  American Muslims whose sympathies lie not with America but with its enemies.

Jihadists Exploit Our Hospitality and Open Borders … Again.  Well, here is the thanks we get.  Eight years ago, America opened its arms to tens of thousands of ethnic Albanian refugees from Kosovo.  The first planeload landed at Fort Dix, New Jersey.  Military leaders worked day and night to turn the base into a child-friendly village.  They coordinated medical and security checkups, mental health and trauma counseling and ethnic food preparations.

U.S. agencies missing links between illegal immigration and terrorism.  Alfonso Salinas was not who he seemed, according to U.S. Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security documents.  He lied to the agents about who he was, where he came from and what he was doing.  It would take nearly a week of interviews with federal agents before Alfonso Salinas would give his real name:  Ayman Sulmane Kamal, a Muslim born in Egypt — a country designated as "special-interest" by the United States for sponsoring terrorism.  Kamal's case is not an isolated one.

Texas Sheriffs Say Terrorists Entering US from Mexico.  The chief law enforcement officers of several Texas counties along the southern U.S. border warn that Arabic-speaking individuals are learning Spanish and integrating into Mexican culture before paying smugglers to sneak them into the United States.  The Texas Sheriffs' Border Coalition believes those individuals are likely terrorists and that drug cartels and some members of the Mexican military are helping them get across the border.

Iraqis are entering U.S. through Mexico.  U.S. and Mexican immigration agencies are investigating the arrival of small groups of Iraqis at the border in the past week and their possible connection to smuggling organizations.  Baja California agents and Mexican federal immigration officers found a group of four Friday night [12/22/2006] at a Tijuana hotel.  In addition, two groups of about two or three Iraqis turned themselves in earlier this week to U.S. inspectors at the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry, asking for political asylum.

Undercover Investigators Get Into U.S. With Fake IDs.  Undercover investigators entered the United States using fake documents repeatedly this year — including some cases in which Homeland Security Department agents didn't ask for identification.  At nine border crossings on the Mexico and Canadian borders, agents "never questioned the authenticity of the counterfeit documents," according to Government Accountability Office testimony to be released Wednesday [8/2/2006].

Illegals From Terror-Sponsoring Nations are At Large in the US.  Almost half of the illegal aliens arriving in the U.S. from terrorist-sponsoring or "special interest" nations in the past few years have been released into the American population following their apprehension.  This key finding is published in an internal audit of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) obtained by Cybercast News Service.

Terrorist Loophole:  Senate Bill Disarms Law Enforcement.  The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act (CIRA, S.2611) before the U.S. Senate is touted by proponents as a "compromise," combining amnesty for current illegal immigrants with stepped-up enforcement provisions.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  A previously unnoticed provision in this complicated legislation would disarm America's state and local police in the war against terrorism.

Making it easier for Al Qaeda.  Rep. Ed Royce cited specific security defects in the bill, including Section 117, which requires every level of government in the United States to consult with every level of government in Mexico before any fencing or other structures can be built on the U.S. side of the border.

Immigration's Fifteen Minutes:  Why Now?  There are far better routes than the Mexican border for terrorists to enter the US.  The Canadian border — much safer than the brutal southern desert — has about one-tenth the security of the Mexican border, even though at least two al Qaeda terrorists (Mohammed Atta and Ahmed Ressam) have used it to enter the United States in preparation for actual attacks.

Immigration Removal Procedures Implemented in the Aftermath of the September 11th Attacks.  The Federal government has very wide Constitutional authority to deal with matters of immigration.  And it also has a Constitutional obligation to insure national security.

9/11, the Pentagon, and our borders:  I know the White House didn't intend it, but the Pentagon 9/11 video release underscores why President Bush's push for a massive "guest worker"/enforcement-later approach to border security is such a betrayal of the memory of those who died in the attacks.

Nice catch for Homeland Security.  The IFCO bust was the biggest ever for ICE.  But if Chertoff follows through, IFCO may soon seem like just a nice-sized fish in a sea teeming with monstrous scofflaws.  The Social Security Administration already knows where the immigration-law-breaking Leviathans lurk.  We will soon learn if Congress and the administration really want to catch them.

Dual citizenship is a national security issue.
When a U.S. Citizen Is Not an American.  For terrorists and their sympathizers, U.S. citizenship is a powerful tool.  It gives them unabridged rights of access to the country, not to mention the right to work in sensitive installations such as nuclear plants, defense facilities, etc.  To those who are intent on destroying America from within, obtaining U.S. citizenship is a critical step.  To them, it is a clever subterfuge that wards off suspicion.

Red Alert:  Amnesty for Tens of Millions of Invaders on the Horizon.  While the invasion of our nation through the southern border continues unabated, our fearless leaders are once again busy cooking up cures that are worse than the disease.  The latest scheme is a form of de facto amnesty euphemistically called the "Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act."  And if it passes, it could be America's final act.

The illegal alien "gold card":  Nearly five years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, our borders remain porous.  The deportation system remains broken.  The government's tracking systems for criminal illegal aliens and visa overstayers remain incomplete.  So, what's Washington's latest homeland security solution?  "Gold Cards" for illegal aliens.

Homeland Security:  Red Alert.  As illegal immigration continues unabated, the White House has seen fit to honor the chief of the Border Patrol, David Aguilar, with a presidential "Meritorious Executive" award, which comes with a cash bonus, for his outstanding performance.  I kid you not.

Open borders, closed minds.  Even in a world gone mad we should not expect to see a headline that Mexico is invading (or even incursioning into) the United States.

Is A War Going On In Texas?  If you don't have access to Texas newspapers or the internet, you may not have heard the sensational news about the enormous cache of weapons just seized in Laredo, Texas. … If bomb-making factories and firearms assembly plants are ordinary day-to-day business in the drug war along our southern border, the American people need to know more about it.

Border crossings:  News this week of the arrest of four Iraqis in Mexico on their way to the U.S. border is cause for concern.  The good news is that the Iraqis themselves appear to be harmless.  Mexican authorities have found no connection to terrorism and there are reports that they could in fact be part of Iraq's Christian minority.  But their attempt to illegally gain entry into the United States by way of Mexico undermines the false hope that terrorists wouldn't try to do the same.

By any means necessary.  A few weeks back, "uniformed drug traffickers" confronted Texas sheriff's deputies on the U.S.-Mexico border.  Texas authorities had tried to stop three SUVs near El Paso, but the SUVs immediately fled south.  The authorities gave chase, where what appeared to be the Mexican army was waiting for them.  They were armed, wore uniforms and their Humvee was allegedly topped with a .50 caliber machine gun.

Violence jumps on US-Mexican border.  Attacks on American border patrol agents along the U.S. border with Mexico have jumped more than 100 percent in the last year, Homeland Security officials said on Thursday [2/9/2006].

Secret Memo:  Smugglers Plan To Kill U.S. Border Agents.  Federal officials have warned U.S. Border Patrol agents that they could be the targets of assassins hired by immigrant smugglers, according to a confidential memo.

Able Danger and the jiggered timeline.  Of course, the very idea of considering INS entry records dispositive is itself a howler to anyone who pays attention.  Aside from the sloppiness of the controls at our borders and the inadequacy of the INS' record keeping, we know that [Mohamed] Atta's April 2001 entry upon which the Commission apparently relies, is itself mysterious.  He is recorded as having entered twice on the same day at the same entry point under two different visa numbers.

Illegal Aliens Captured Working at Hard-Target Facilities.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have arrested 60 illegal aliens who performed contract work at 12 critical infrastructure sites, including seven petrochemical refineries, three power plants, a national air cargo facility, and a pipeline facility located in six different states. … There is no evidence that any have terrorist ties or were engaged in a terrorist plot.

Oak Ridge:  our de facto border.  Because the administration has not dedicated the resources needed — or shown the political will — to stop illegal aliens at the border, or to stop employers from hiring them inside the United States, America's de facto border now runs through Oak Ridge, Tenn.  We have found a place where the immigration laws will actually be enforced:  It is inside the gates of a nuclear weapons plant.

Foreign Workers With Fake Documents Entered Tennessee Nuke Plant.  Sixteen foreign-born construction workers with phony immigration documents were able to enter a nuclear weapons plant in eastern Tennessee because of lax security controls.

A glowing illegal alien alert.  It has now been almost four years since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.  But because the Bush administration has not made a priority of securing our border and enforcing the immigration laws within the United States itself, it has also failed in at least one instance to secure a weapons-of-mass-destruction facility on our own soil.

Immigration Policy:  A national security imperative.  Immigration, now more than ever before, has become a national-security issue.  And as the leader of the free world and its Western values, the United States stands in strategic and ideological opposition to the goals of these Jihadi terrorists.  We are thus their prime target, and a soft one at that, as demonstrated on September 11, 2001.  And yet our borders remain wide open to those who would destroy us.

Homeland insecurity:  The year in review.  Border Patrol officers and local investigative journalists in the Southwest reported on increasing numbers of Middle Eastern males entering illegally from Mexico.  Muslim prayer books and Arabic diaries were discovered on "Terrorist Alley" in southern Arizona.  Suspected al Qaeda operative Adnan Shukrijumah, a fugitive Saudi pilot who reportedly met with MS-13 earlier this year, is believed to be in Mexico.

Illegal aliens, with us forever.  All 19 hijackers on 9/11 entered the United States legally on government-issued visas, several of whom illegally overstayed their allotted time.  Now we hear there is another way aliens are able to remain in our country.  They sneak over our borders illegally, or illegally overstay their visas, and then become legal by exploiting a now-expired loophole known as 245(i), the section in a 1994 federal law that allows an illegal alien to apply for a green card, stay permanently in the United States, and subsequently apply for citizenship.

Why Revoke Tariq Ramadan's U.S. Visa?  It's not every day that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) revokes a visa issued to a Swiss-national scholar scheduled to teach at one of America's premier universities.  But this has just happened, and it's a good thing too.  Americans should thank DHS for keeping Tariq Ramadan out of the United States.

The academic/media complex.  For some reason, Ramadan's inability to enter the country for an extended stay in an influential post seems to raise the hackles of weighty editorial pages from around the country.  Why would this particular academic get such special treatment?  It is just another manifestation of class solidarity within the liberal academic/media complex.

Hate Tour.  How the State Department invites and pays for extremists to visit the US.  Inviting members of extremist organizations or individuals that refuse a rational, civilized debate is, frankly, a waste of money.  If, moreover, the Americans chosen to meet with the program's foreign participants happen to be hard-line critics of the US, we have a recipe for disaster.

"Harmonizing" Our Decline:  Our standard of living is being deliberately undermined to merge our nation into a centrally directed global economy.

Revolution in America:  "I am not an American.  There is nothing about me that is American.  I don't want to be an American, and I have just as much right to be here as any of you."  Thus spoke one individual identified as a "Latino activist" during a session of the "National Conversation on American Pluralism and Identity," a $4 million project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Aliens hiding in plain sight.  Nearly half of the 48 al Qaeda terrorists tied to violent acts in the United States between 1993 and 2001 committed significant immigration-law violations prior to those events but were never detained or deported, federal records show.

America's insane asylum for terrorists:  Do you know how the alleged "shopping-mall" bomber entered our country?  He didn't cross the border illegally.  He didn't sneak in on a ship.  He came through the front door at America's invitation.

Just what we need...
US Offers Citizenship To 7000 Ahiska Muslims.  The United States has agreed to grant citizenship to 7,000 Ahiska Muslims who will be settled in Pennsylvania, according to a Russian newspaper, Novie Izvestia.  It added that the Muslims would be housed near the grand mosque in Philadelphia.

Can Jihads be Assimilated?  Nothing has made Europeans wake up to what they have allowed mass immigration to do to them than the jihad many Muslims are licking their whiskers to wage against the new countries to which they have invited themselves.

Immigrants pour into US, unabated by war on terror:  The State Department saw only a 4 percent dip in immigrant visas.  The US still draws many from the Mideast.

Thanksgiving for immigrants:  Is it possible to take wise precautions against both terrorism and future disunity while honoring the pro-immigration flavor of American and biblical history?

Foreign Student Tracking Fiasco:  The INS can tell us that there are some 1 million foreigners now in the United States with student visas.  But it can't say how many of them actually are attending the schools they applied to, where they are if they transferred or dropped out, or whether the student data that schools give them are truthful or fraudulent.

State Department's Visa Boss Quits:  The chief of the State Department's consular affairs division announced her resignation Wednesday amid mounting criticism over how the department has issued visas to Arabs in the wake of September 11 terrorist attacks.

Feds Lose 2,000 Aliens Sought for Questioning About 9/11:  Thanks to more bungling from the INS, the federal government could not find nearly half the 4,112 registered immigrants sought for questioning about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to a report issued today. [11/21/2002]

Who let Lee Malvo loose?  The mainstream media informed us this week that Lee Malvo, the reportedly "17-year-old" youth charged as a material witness in the sniper investigation along with John Mohammed, is a "Jamaican national."  As of this writing (Oct. 24), the Immigration and Naturalization Service refused to comment publicly on the exact nature of Malvo's immigration status.

Complex INS laws spared Malvo:  When INS officials released illegal alien Lee Boyd Malvo, aka the "sniper," they were just going by the book.

What to do about Malvogate:  There is a growing clamor for new congressional inquiries into how the Immigration and Naturalization Service recklessly releases illegal aliens like sniper suspect Lee Malvo — and then watches them disappear to commit brutal crimes against American citizens.  Please, no more hearings.  What we need now is action from the White House, not another redundant confab on Capitol Hill.

Three out of four in the U.S. want less Arab immigration:  More than three-fourths of Americans want U.S. immigration laws tightened to allow fewer immigrants from Arab or Muslim nations into the country.  Instead, Washington pays to move Muslims to the United States.

INS intensifies screening of Arab-Canadians:  The Justice Department, in a reasoned but controversial move, has given immigration officers authority to fingerprint, photograph and monitor visiting Canadians born in high-risk Muslim countries, including Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, according to sensitive internal documents obtained by WorldNetDaily.

Immigration is a Terrorist Weapon:  Unable to shut up about the glories of uncontrolled mass immigration, the Open Borders lobby ever since September 11 has periodically tried to tell us that the 19 foreign terrorists who entered the United States legally weren't really immigrants.  Therefore, you see, mass immigration is OK.  Like everything else the Open Borders crackpots claim, this is wrong.

End sanctuary for illegal immigrants:  What does fighting terrorism have to do with stemming massive illegal immigration?  Much more than government officials have been willing to let on over the past year.

Another immigration loophole:  Despite all we know about the people who are plotting to kill Americans, the United States has issued 50,000 visas since 9/11 to non-Israeli visitors from the Middle East.  Yet, the plan to consolidate border-security functions in the new Homeland Security Cabinet office doesn't include the issuing of visas by the State Department, which is the chief venue of potential terrorists.

Deadly Diversity, Dumb Program:  In the drawer of dumb, post-September 11 immigration ideas, the State Department's Diversity Visa Lottery program sits near the top of the heap.  How many lives have been sacrificed at the altar of diversity through this immigration set-aside program?

Who is Janis Sposato?  Here's a closer look at how bogus the immigration reform charade really is.

Banking on American Stupidity:  Here we are, at war with deadly foreign terrorists who exploited our lax immigration policies, and what are these U.S. financial institutions doing?  Making it easier for illegal immigrants to do business inside our borders.

Damaged by diversity:  Our national borders are the front lines of America's war against terrorism.  It should come as no surprise to anyone that our borders are being overrun.  They are open doors to the easy entry – legal and illegal – of those who would do us harm.

"Arab terrorists" crossing the border:  Middle Eastern illegals find easy entrance into U.S. from Mexico.

Student Visa System "Fraudulent":  At least 16 of the 19 terrorists who hijacked the four commercial airplanes used to destroy the World Trade Center and damage the Pentagon entered the U.S. with student and tourist visas that expired before Sept. 11.  This failure to enforce immigration policy has prompted calls to revise the system that permitted the terrorists to remain in the United States while they plotted their actions.

Restrict immigration, not civil liberties:  It is folly to be allied with Israel against its Muslim enemies and simultaneously to keep one's borders open to Muslim immigrants.

U.S. Wide Open to Terrorists, Experts Warn:  The United States' wide-open borders and chaotic immigration control system permitted the easy access of the terrorists who carried out the New York City attacks, and that openness is hampering the FBI's investigation, according to immigration experts.  The virtual breakdown of U.S. immigration controls, these experts say, will make it impossible for the Bush administration to effect the "homeland defense" that it is planning.

Immigration Reform Prophets vs. The Treason Lobby:  For years prior to the recent atrocities, critics of mass immigration and advocates of immigration restriction have argued that uncontrolled immigration would lead to precisely what it led to.

The Enemy Is Here — Not Just In Afghanistan.  By an overwhelming majority of 77 percent, the American public believes "the government is not doing enough to control the border and screen people allowed into the country," according to a Zogby poll just released last week.

Future widows of America:  write your congressman:  Congress has authority to pass a law tomorrow requiring aliens from suspect countries to leave.  As far as the Constitution is concerned, aliens, which is to say non-citizens, are here at this country's pleasure.  They have no constitutional right to be here.


Many Mexicans would prefer to forcibly reclaim the southwestern U.S.

Aztlan
Cultivating a New Generation of Racists On Campus.  The Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA), or "Chicano Student Movement," describes itself as an organization that urges young Chicanos (people of Mexican ancestry living in the United States) to use "higher education" and "political involvement" to promote "cultural and historical pride," "liberation," and "self-determination" among their people.  In practice, MEChA aggressively promotes anti-Americanism and anti-white hatred by relentlessly stoking the fires of racial and ethnic grievance among Latino students.  MEChA's roots can be traced back to the Chicano Movement of the late 1960s, which emphasized "brown pride" while rejecting "acculturation and assimilation" into the American mainstream.  In that milieu, the first National Chicano Youth Liberation Conference, organized by an entity called Crusade for Justice, was held in Denver, Colorado in March 1969. Participants in this conference drafted the basic premises for the "Chicana/Chicano Movement" in a seminal document titled El Plan Espiritual de Aztlán (EPEA), which today is required reading for all members of MEChA's various chapters.


La Raza Declares War on Border Wall, Demands "Reconquista" of Southwest.  The National Council of La Raza, an organization that promotes the Reconquista of the southwest United States, called President Trump's Executive Order a "declaration of war" on the Hispanic community equivalent to the slave trade.  Janet Murgu'a, president of the National Council of La Raza, claimed the president's plan to build a wall on the southern border and deport violent illegal immigrants will "tarnish our nation's character."

The Obama Regime's Criminal Syndicate.  [Scroll down]  Among the radical leftist groups pre-approved by the settlement agreements to directly receive funds from the banks is none other than The National Council of La Raza, which bills itself as "the nation's largest Hispanic activist organization."  Yet, a brief history lesson on the reality of La Raza, which literally translates to "the race," shows us that the group has been connected to the Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), an extremist Mexican race hate group which firmly believes in exploiting illegal immigration to bring about 'La Reconquista', a violent overthrow of the southern U.S. states that would be absorbed into Greater Mexico. [...] According to a February 2016 independent monitor report, there are 147 "HUD-approved counseling agencies" that make up these third party groups like La Raza that are currently receiving hundreds of millions of dollars directly from the banks under the DOJ settlement agreements.

Jorge Ramos:  America Is 'Our Country, Not Theirs' — 'And We Are Not Going to Leave'.  Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos declared on Friday [2/24/2017] that the United States belongs to Latino migrants, emphatically stating to a Spanish-speaking audience that "it is our country, not theirs."  Ramos took an unusual tack, pivoting from talk of diversity and togetherness into boasts of conquest.  Mass immigration, particularly illegal immigration, was a fait accompli.  There is nothing the U.S. can do about it, and they must accept that America is "not their" country and that illegal aliens, particularly Latinos, "are not going to leave," he said.

The Rage of Failure.  The flow of illegal immigration into the United States from Latin America is often made by families desperate to find a better life — and we can sympathize with them, even though that sympathy cannot descend into allowing violation of our immigration laws. [...] The worst possible action, for everyone's sake, would be to turn the Southwest into an extension of Mexico — and yet that is precisely what some militant Hispanics in America want, ensuring greater misery for everyone to sate their rage at the failure of Latin America over the last two hundred years.

The Obama Regime's Criminal Syndicate.  [Scroll down]  Specifically, the DOJ narrowed the list of entities eligible to receive funds by selecting "HUD-approved housing counseling agencies" as the only entities to which the banks could make disbursements for credit.  As the Wall Street Journal outlined in a piece highlighting the DOJ's liberal slush fund, "the department is in the process of funneling more than half-a-billion dollars to liberal activist groups."  Among the radical leftist groups pre-approved by the settlement agreements to directly receive funds from the banks is none other than The National Council of La Raza, which bills itself as "the nation's largest Hispanic activist organization."  Yet, a brief history lesson on the reality of La Raza, which literally translates to "the race," shows us that the group has been connected to the Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), an extremist Mexican race hate group which firmly believes in exploiting illegal immigration to bring about 'La Reconquista', a violent overthrow of the southern U.S. states that would be absorbed into Greater Mexico.  It should come as no surprise that La Raza is favored under these settlement agreements given that the racist organization supports the Democratic cause of open borders while Cecilia Munoz, a La Raza senior vice president, also serves on the White House Domestic Policy Council.

Univision Promotes 'Make America Mexico Again'.  Univision's May 19, 2016 edition of its late-night national news show Edición Nocturna featured a completely favorable story about drug legalization activist Jerónimo Saldaña, the creator and vendor of baseball caps that are stamped with the slogan "Make America Mexico Again."  Saldaña says he was inspired to start making and selling the hats after first seeing one on the Latino Rebels Facebook page and because, as he puts it, he just flat-out doesn't like Trump.  Surprising nobody, in its report Univision included no critical or opposing views against the hat.

Aztlan Rising — A New, Anti-American, National Consciousness Being Created Among Many Mexican-Americans.  One of the first theories many immigration patriots first get introduced to is the idea of Aztlan, what many Chicano activists call the American Southwest.  Aztlan is supposed to be a newly independent Chicano homeland someday, the ethnostate for Mestizos eager to throw off the American Empire and set up their own republic of blood and soil built upon the old identity of the Aztecs. [...] Does this mean that the American Southwest is literally going to be cut away from the United States?  Not necessarily.  It simply shows that there is a new national consciousness being created among many Mexican-Americans, one diametrically opposed to a common American identity.  It's something which shows that the "melting pot" has ceased to function.

Mexico Is Sending Us Colonists, Not Immigrants.  "Mexico First" has been the open, avowed policy of the government of Mexico for a generation, and Mexico expects its former residents to be loyal to Mexico for the next 200 years. [...] Why does Mexico devote so much effort to promoting and helping millions of its citizens leave Mexico and start a new life in "el Norte"?  Does the fact that the millions of Mexicans living in the U.S. send $25 billion dollars in cash remittances annually back to relatives in Mexico have anything to do with it — cash that provides 30 percent of Mexico's foreign investment, rivaling tourism in importance to the Mexican economy?

Could Illegal Alien Terror Hit the U.S.?  Are open-borders advocates and Hispanic activists sowing the seeds for revolution?  Not just a social revolution, but an armed, violent revolution?  In a little-discussed news item from this month, a 16-year-old illegal alien set a police cruiser on fire in Texas before attempting to swerve his car into two motorcycle cops during a police chase that followed.  Although he was armed — and aimed a rifle at the police twice — he was eventually apprehended without a shot being fired.  The teen, whose name hasn't been released due to his age, later told investigators he was tired of ICE "always sending Mexicans back to Mexico for no reason."  He said they are the ones in America "doing all the work."  He was also tired of "his people getting shot by police and nothing happening."  His broader motivation?  As he put it, to create a "war against the government."

Mexicans:  Southwest U.S. is ours.  A healthy majority of Mexicans claim that their country rightfully owns much of the southwestern United States, while most Americans believe Washington should adopt stricter immigration standards and deploy U.S. troops along the border, a new poll says.

Same story:
Most Mexicans Believe Chunk of US Belongs To Them:  A majority of Mexicans, according to a new Zogby International poll, believe the southwestern part of the United States rightfully belongs to Mexico and that Mexicans should have the right to enter the United States without first obtaining U.S. government permission.

Aztlan and Amalgamation.  While American troops engage al-Qaeda terrorist cells in far-flung battlefields across Asia and our military leadership prepares for a Gulf War encore against Iraq, our "friend" and "neighbor" to the South is relentlessly invading our homeland.  The Mexican government and radical "Chicano" groups in this country are pursuing the dream of La Reconquista – the "re-conquest" of the southwestern United States.

Mexican aliens seek to retake 'stolen' land.  La reconquista, a radical movement calling for Mexico to "reconquer" America's Southwest, has stepped out of the shadows at recent immigration-reform protests nationwide as marchers held signs saying, "Uncle Sam Stole Our Land!" and waved Mexico's flag.

Southwest shall secede from U.S., professor predicts:  Charles Truxillo, a professor of Chicano studies at the University of New Mexico, suggests "Republica del Norte" would be a good name for a new, sovereign Hispanic nation he foresees straddling the current border between the United States and Mexico.  The Republic of the North — he predicts its creation as "an inevitability" — would include all of the present U.S. states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, plus southern Colorado."

Mexico reconquering U.S. territory?  Writer says emigration is imposing Hispanic culture on North America.

Do We Want Mexifornia?  Californians cannot even obtain accurate numbers of how many of the state's more than 10 million Hispanic residents have arrived here from Mexico unlawfully in the last two decades.  No one believes the government's old insistence on a mere 6 million illegal residents nationwide; the real figure may be twice that.
