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.
Nam tua res agitur paries cum proximo ardet.
state of our union under Biden: A weaker, less secure, more divided America. Next week, President Joe
Biden will address Congress on the state of the union, as the Constitution dictates. He ought to take an honest
look at the country and the many problems it faces — problems his administration has either created or
worsened. Over the next week, the Washington Examiner will report on a few of the important problems
plaguing the country and how they are affecting the public every day. The most glaring crisis our country faces
today is at the southern border, where hundreds of thousands of immigrants are crossing into the country illegally
every month, overwhelming immigration officials and border towns. Just last week, border agents confirmed that
more than 1.2 million immigrants evaded immigration enforcement completely. Who knows how many of these
immigrants were on the terror watch list, as at least 70,000 apprehended immigrants have been, or were part of the drug
cartels flooding our cities with fentanyl. The reason the border crisis angers the public so deeply —
indeed, it is almost always listed as a top concern for voters — is that it makes clear how little respect
Biden's administration has for America's sovereignty.
Isn't Homeland Security Monitoring A Muslim-Only Immigrant Shelter At The US Border? In October, U.S.
Border Patrol caught another nine border-crossing immigrants who were on the FBI's terrorism watch list, adding to the
already record-breaking 98 during the just-ended fiscal 2022 and 14 during the prior fiscal year. Those 121
suspected terrorist border crossings should strike President Joe Biden's homeland security establishment and the general
public as a "system blinking red" moment, to requote the infamous 9/11 Commission Report line about failures to act on
threat information. But my recent fact-finding trip to Mexico's first and only shelter that expressly caters to
U.S.-bound Muslim immigrants indicated Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sees no blinking red lights amid
this current mass-migration border crisis. In June 2022, the San Diego-based Latina Muslim Foundation noticed
significant enough numbers of U.S.-bound travelers from the Islamic world to justify opening the Albergue
Assabil/Mesquijta Taybah shelter in a two-story, 8,000-square-foot former nightclub in Tijuana just two blocks from the
border wall, which all who stay there intend to bypass one way or another.
Dozens on Terrorist Watchlist
Among Record 2.4 Million Migrants Caught in FY 2022. Besides shattering a U.S. record for apprehending
nearly 2.4 million illegal immigrants along the Mexican border in fiscal year 2022, Border Patrol agents arrested
hundreds of gang members — mostly from the famously violent Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) — and dozens
of people on the national terrorist watchlist. Federal agents also confiscated thousands of pounds of drugs,
mainly methamphetamine, according to government figures released by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) just days
ago. The startling year-end (fiscal years run from October to September) stats depict a chaotic Mexican border
region rife with lawlessness that is inevitably seeping north.
sets new record for terrorism suspects at border. The Border Patrol apprehended 20 terrorism suspects in
September, bringing the total for fiscal year 2022 to nearly 100, according to new data released late Friday that shows
the Biden administration obliterating previous records. Experts say the numbers are a leading indicator of the
chaos at the southern border, because when more are caught, it means even more are likely getting through. The 20
suspects nabbed in September is a new monthly record, easily topping the previous high of 15 set in May.
Hijackers Overstayed Visas, Remained in U.S. Thanks to Loophole Now Used by 685K Illegal Aliens. Seven of
the 19 Islamic terrorists who hijacked commercial planes on September 11, 2001 (9/11), killing nearly 3,000 Americans,
remained in the United States after overstaying their visas thanks to a wide-open loophole that continues to allow about
685,000 illegal aliens to stay in the U.S. In total, all 19 terrorists arrived legally in the U.S. as 16 secured
tourist visas and three obtained business and student visas. Eventually, on September 11, the terrorists executed
attacks in New York City, New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania that killed 2,977 Americans and have since left
thousands more Americans dead with illnesses related to the attacks.
Fix The CIA - Before
It Is Too Late. Our southern border is effectively non-existent. Anything and
anyone can come across that imaginary line at any time. It could be a team of suicide
bombers. It could be a crew with a "dirty bomb" already built in the back of a panel
truck. It might be a half dozen individuals already infected with a highly communicable
disease that will make COVID look like a walk in the park. Hollywood would have you
understand that all sorts of high-tech gear and "gee whiz" gizmos will allow us to detect such
threats and prevent catastrophe. I wish that were true. It is not. One of the
best ways to tell us about an attack ahead of time is going to be reporting from a human source
with the right access. Unfortunately, the CIA — whose bread and butter is
recruiting and running human sources — has been getting worse at its trade for some time
now. No corrective action has been taken. No one has been held accountable.
illegal migrants on terror watch list have been caught at the border so far this year. More illegal immigrants
on a terror watch lift have been caught crossing the southern border so-far this year than during the last five years
combined, figures reveal. Since the fiscal year began in October, 50 migrants who appeared in the federal Terrorist
Screening Dataset have been intercepted while trying to cross into the US between official checkpoints at the southern
border, according to Customs and Border Patrol statistics. That's up from just 15 for the 2021 fiscal year, three in
2020, none in 2019, six in 2018 and two in 2017 according to the enforcement statistics data released on Wednesday by CBP.
Proof the Border Is a National Security Issue. Those who argue for an America without borders are like
teenagers lecturing their parents about how the world works. They brim with passion and confidence, augmented by
like-minded peers and social media that affirm their beliefs. Only years later, after experiencing the harsh world for
themselves, are they gobsmacked with the reality that much of what they believed turned out to be wrong. At least some
young people have such an epiphany. The anti-borders lobby, by contrast, learns nothing and digs deeper into their
positions no matter how much reality proves them wrong.
Ukrainians jumped U.S. border in April. More than 20,000 Ukrainians stormed the U.S.-Mexico border last month,
showing up at border crossings and asking to be let in under a new leniency policy from the Biden administration. Some
1,500 others snuck across the border between ports of entry and were apprehended by Border Patrol agents, according to new
Homeland Security statistics released Tuesday [5/17/2022]. The Ukrainians were part of a record surge of non-traditional
migrants who reached the border in April, exposing new challenges for the Biden administration.
Terrorists Who Crossed Border Into United States May Have Been Released: Mayorkas. Some of the 42 illegal
immigrants who were arrested by U.S. border agents and identified as suspected terrorists may have been released into the
United States, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandryo Mayorkas said on May 4. "Some may be placed in removal
proceedings. Some may be placed in criminal custody. Some may be cooperating with law enforcement. Some may
be downgraded from the terrorist rating," Mayorkas told the Senate Homeland & Governmental Affairs Committee in
Washington. Mayorkas said officials in his agency know the "precise disposition" of each of the 42 suspected terrorists
but declined to share that information in a public setting.
People on [the] Terrorist Database [were] Stopped at [the] Southern Border in 2021. What was once known as the
Southern border of the United States is essentially nonexistent in this second year of Old Joe Biden's misrule, and so it was
no surprise Monday [4/25/2022] when it came to light that in 2021, the Border Patrol had caught at least 23 people at the
border who are on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB). Terrorists can see what's happening at the border as much as
anyone else can; why shouldn't they take advantage of the mess Old Joe has made? And those 23, of course, were just the
ones who got caught. Fox News reported Monday that "between Jan. 20," the day Biden began pretending to be president,
"and Dec. 27, 2021, there were 23 encounters with individuals whose names matched on the Terrorist Screening Database
(TSDB)." [...] But the administration has every reason to stonewall such requests, as nothing demonstrates the catastrophe
that is Biden's handling of the border crisis more vividly than the entry of known terrorists into the United States.
DHS Prioritizes Gender Ideology As The Border Implodes. President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) introduced various measures to accommodate transgender and nonbinary individuals in its security processes as migrants
continued to pour through the southern border. The DHS Equity Action Plan calls binary gender a "construct" and strives
to remove gender from the screening processes used in airports, border security and citizenship and naturalization
processes. Meanwhile, Border Patrol saw around 41,000 migrants cross the southern border in March alone. National
Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told lawmakers that migrants from countries all over the world, including
nations with terrorism ties, were coming over the border and that agents had apprehended 34 individuals with names matching
those on the terrorist watch list.
Ukrainians Increasingly Using Southern Border to Get into U.S.. Russian and Ukrainian nationals are
increasingly arriving at the United States-Mexico border in the hopes of being released into the nation's interior, newly
released data shows. As Republican and Democrat lawmakers focus their attention on the borders of Ukraine amidst
Russia's invasion, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data reveals that a growing number of Russians and Ukrainians are
using the southern border to get released into the U.S. interior.
administration released Islamist terror suspect into U.S. after he crossed border illegally. House Republicans
are seeking a hearing to investigate how the Biden administration released a suspected Islamist terrorist into the United
States after being stopped crossing the southern border illegally. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), ranking member of the
Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, sent a request to House Democrats requesting authorization to hold
the hearing, writing: "There is no known case in which a foreign national who pinged on a terror watch list was simply
released on his own recognizance. "The facts in the case strongly suggest that the Biden Administration failed to
follow appropriate protocols with respect to suspected terrorists."
illegal immigrants on terror watch list [were] stopped at [the] border in 2021, former Border Patrol chief says. Law
enforcement intercepted 14 illegal immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border who were on the terrorist watchlist, a former top
official said, more than the four stops that the Department of Homeland Security had disclosed. U.S. Border Patrol
agents stopped 14 noncitizens who were named on the terror watchlist and tried to sneak into the United States between
October 2020 and August 2021, one month short of the entire fiscal year 2021, according to recently retired Border Patrol
Chief Rodney Scott, who disclosed the number during a panel discussion at a Texas Public Policy Foundation conference in
Austin this month and in a follow-up conversation with the Washington Examiner.
Was Texas Synagogue Jihadi Allowed Into U.S. Two Weeks Ago Despite 'Long Criminal Record'? The family of Malik
Faisal Akram, the Islamic jihadi from Britain who took hostages in Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas,
Saturday, has "demanded to know how he was allowed into America despite a long criminal record," says the UK's Daily
Mail. More than just his family should be asking this question. How was this man able to storm a synagogue in
Texas and take people hostage at gunpoint when he shouldn't have been allowed into the United States in the first place?
If anything shows how broken our immigration system is under the regime of Biden's handlers, it is this entire episode.
Administration Takes Down Post on 'Potential Terrorist' Apprehended at Southern Border. President Joe Biden's
administration has deleted a social media post that informed the public that a "potential terrorist" had been apprehended
this month at the U.S.-Mexico border. Chris Clem, a top Border Patrol agent, posted pictures on Twitter last week
showing the man who was apprehended. Clem included the man's age (21), his country of origin (Saudi Arabia), and said
the male was "linked to several Yemeni subjects of interest." But Clem's post was taken down recently, Customs and Border
Protection (CBP), which includes Border Patrol, confirmed to The Epoch Times on Dec. 29. "All individuals encountered at
or between U.S. ports of entry are screened and vetted against a broad range of law enforcement and intelligence information
to determine if they pose a threat to national security or public safety, consistent with the law. CBP is continuing to
investigate the matter following its standard protocols. This may include referral, if appropriate, to other relevant
law enforcement entities for further investigation and a custody determination," Luis Miranda, CBP's public affairs assistant
commissioner, said in an emailed statement.
Recent apprehension of terror-linked migrant show Biden policies dangerous for America. Tom Homan, former
Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), has once again lambasted President Joe Biden over his handling,
or lack thereof, of the border situation. As the ongoing border crisis worsens, a 21-year-old man was caught trying to
illegally enter the country at Yuma, Arizona with some disturbing details. The man, whose name has not been released,
allegedly has ties to terrorist networks in Yemen and was wearing a jacket with a Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance
Corps patch. Since the organization is in Albany, New York, this has led to some speculation that the man may have been
involved with some kind of plot involving that part of the country. This has led to more commentary by Homan, a
frequent critic of Biden and his border policies, to take to Fox News on Monday to call the president out.
Arabian 'potential terrorist' nabbed at US-Mexico border; ties to Yemeni subjects of interest, feds say. A
"potential terrorist" with links to a number of "Yemeni subjects of interest" was captured in Arizona late last week after
illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, U.S. Border Patrol officials announced Monday [12/20/2021]. The 21-year-old
man was apprehended Thursday night entering the U.S. from Mexico through Yuma, Arizona, according to a tweet from Yuma Sector
Chief Patrol Agent Chris T. Clem. He appears to have been wearing a jacket emblazoned with an American flag patch and
another that stated: "Central Oneida County Volunteer." [Tweet] The man is allegedly from Saudi Arabia
and "is linked to several Yemeni subjects of interest."
immigrant Russians nabbed making run at U.S. border. Three vehicles piled with Russian illegal immigrants made
a run at the U.S. border on Sunday, drawing gunfire from a Homeland Security officer. A Mercedes and a Ford SUV rushed
toward the San Ysidro border crossing at a high rate of speed, and a Customs and Border Protection officer who was walking
among the cars awaiting entry fired at the Mercedes, the government said. The bullets didn't wound anyone, but the
Mercedes crashed into the Ford and two people in the Mercedes were injured, CBP said Tuesday. Officers found 18
Russians among the two vehicles.
News! Illegal Migrants Are Allowed to Fly Without ID. Good news: the Biden administration has once again
proven that it is not "racist" by allowing illegal migrants to board commercial flights around the country even though they
don't have identification. And really, what could possibly go wrong? This disturbing revelation comes from
Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas), who has been investigating the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) as part of a
larger investigation into what the Daily Caller described as "whistleblower documents alleging an operation to move migrants
across the country without standard documentation." [...] Said Gooden: "When I asked a border patrol officer about TSA
allowing migrants to fly with no identification, they told me a Notice to Appear is not sufficient identification and they
often have to take migrants at their word that they are who they say they are. TSA and non-profit groups are putting
millions of Americans travelling for Christmas at risk by allowing these unknown and unvetted migrants to board planes and
fly across the country."
Admin Didn't Actually Bother Vetting Afghan Refugees. The Obama administration liked to claim that it engaged
in thorough vetting of the Muslim refugees it brought to America. The Biden administration dispensed with the pretense
of even bothering. While vetting isn't especially effective, it still is manpower resource intensive and time
consuming. The Biden administration had set out to quickly move Afghan refugees through a pipeline from Muslim
countries hosting them that didn't want them to the U.S. And with huge unprecedented numbers of migrants with little in the
way of paperwork and a narrow time frame, there was no time for any of that. How did the Biden admin manage it?
Cartels to Provoke Border Agents, Illegal-alien Invasion Could Provide Cover for Bioweapons Terrorism. The
Biden Regime's failure to stop the illegal-alien invasion at the southern border and vilification of the Border Patrol has
handed the drug cartels and America's enemies a major weapon they can use to attack the country. The cartels, Lara
Logan of Fox News reported, are pushing drug smugglers to confront border agents to provoke a reaction that will be recorded
and further undermine the border force. The mass invasion could provide cover for a terrorist or foreign power to
smuggle a bioweapon into the country, she said, citing national security experts. So the threat the illegal aliens
represent is not just one of budget-busting numbers or the inevitable crime wave Americans will suffer. They and Biden,
the man who invited them in, are gravely endangering national security.
Afghan Evacuees Flown To US Flagged For Terrorist Ties. At least 100 Afghan refugees who were set to enter the
US have been flagged for terrorist ties, NBC News reports, and will now be sent to Kosovo where they will undergo additional
screening and review. Specifically the 100 were "flagged for possible ties to the Taliban or terror groups." NBC
detailed that "of more than 30,000 evacuees from Afghanistan to the U.S., about 10,000 needed additional screening as of
Friday, said the sources, and of those about 100 were flagged for possible ties to the Taliban or terror groups."
Cruz says Afghan refugees are 'getting Ubers' from Fort Bliss when they arrive in the US. Ted Cruz claimed
Afghan refugees can call an uber to leave their holding location in the U.S. as Republican criticism of the Biden
administration's vetting process ramped up ahead of the U.S. withdraw from Afghanistan. The criticism came amid a
report that an Afghan man who had been convicted of rape and had been deported from the U.S. was allowed to board an Afghan
evacuation flight to America. Cruz is one several Republican lawmakers who have criticized President Joe Biden's
handling of the situation in Afghanistan.
terrorists crossing border 'at a level we have never seen before,' outgoing Border Patrol chief says.
Unprecedented numbers of known or suspected terrorists have crossed the southern border in recent months, the outgoing Border
Patrol chief said. The head of the Border Patrol, Rodney Scott, told his 19,000 agents before retiring on Aug. 14 that
their national security mission is paramount right now despite the Biden administration's focus on migrant families and
children who are coming across the United States-Mexico boundary at record rates.
Official: Terrorists Blending With Migrants from Outside Americas Trying to Reach U.S.. Panamanian
authorities have detected terrorists trying to blend in with the unprecedented number of migrants from Haiti, Cuba, Africa,
Asia, and the Middle East attempting to reach the U.S. and Canada through the Central American country, the country's top
diplomat warned. Erika Mouynes, the foreign minister in Panama, wrote an article published by Foreign Policy
pleading for help from the U.S., where many of these migrants who escape apprehension intend to go, and the international
community, describing the situation as a humanitarian crisis.
Do Feds Keep Suppressing News Of Suspected Muslim Terrorists Crossing The Southern Border? Project Veritas
recently released a video based on content leaked from within Border Patrol, reporting that Al-Bokari, a suspected Yemeni
Arab terrorist known to be in Mexico, had not been detained and deported by the Mexican authorities, and that the U.S. Border
Patrol had caught him crossing the border. [Video clip] But the phenomenon of potential terrorists
attempting cross the southern border is not new — nor is the fact that the U.S. government has long appeared
determined to cover it up (note that this story had to be leaked), under both Republican and Democrat presidents. Thus
earlier this month, Customs and Border Patrol announced two separate apprehensions of Yemeni individuals on the Terrorist
Watch List — only subsequently to scrub the announcement from its website without explanation.
if the Next 9/11 Terrorist Attack is Just Days Away? Joe Biden is either insane; or he doesn't care about the
lives of Americans like you and me, and our precious children; or he's a puppet for the forces of evil, intent on destroying
this great country. Because what other reason could there be for leaving our border wide open and inviting the whole
world in? Border agents should be looking for terrorists. Instead Biden has turned them into babysitters.
In March 172,000 illegal aliens got through our open border. That's up 71% from February. But this is a trickle
compared to what's coming. [...] Trust me, the whole world is coming. Each month the word spreads. Everyone who
gets to our border is let in, given a free lawyer; given cash by Catholic charities; a government-issued debit card (filled
with money provided by our taxes); and a plane or bus ticket wherever they want to go. Without ID by the way.
That's right. Any illegal alien, coming from the worst terrorist hellholes in the world, can board a plane in the U.S.,
with no ID, no Covid test, and no idea if they're a terrorist.
grim sign the Biden admin aims to hide the worst news from the border. The US Customs and Border Patrol just
took down its press release announcing the apprehension of two suspected terrorists in Southern California after just a
day. The agency described them as Yemeni nationals named on the FBI terrorism watchlist and "No Fly" list. CBP
agents found both suspects in the El Centro sector of California several hours from the US-Mexico border. One reportedly
had a cellphone SIM card hidden in his shoe. This, after Republican pressure forced the CBP to confirm last month that
four suspected terrorists on the FBI's watchlist, three Yemenis and a Serb, had been stopped at the border since October.
Now it's up to six ... that we know of.
officials arresting terror suspects is 'rare,' White House says. The White House is downplaying the national
security implications of two suspected terrorists being arrested at the southern border as federal officials struggle with a
surge in migrant crossings under President Joe Biden. It is "uncommon" for border agents to apprehend known or
suspected terrorists, White House press secretary Jen Psaki insisted Tuesday [4/6/2021]. "While this is rare, this is a
reflection of them doing their jobs," Psaki told reporters, referring to Border Patrol and other federal officers.
agents arrest two Yemeni men identified on terror watch list. Border Patrol agents in the El Centro Sector of
the U.S.-Mexico border arrested two Yemeni nationals with terrorism ties in two separate incidents within the last two
months, according to a Monday press release. On January 29, agents made the first arrest around three miles west of the
Calexico Port of Entry. Agents then transported the illegal alien, 33, to the El Centro Processing Center for immigration and
conducted a criminal history screening, where he was found to be on both the FBI's Terrorism Watch List and the No-Fly list.
Yemenis on FBI Terrorism Watch List Apprehended at Border in California. El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents
arrested two Yemeni nationals who illegally crossed the border into the U.S. in separate incidents during the past two
months. Agents identified both men as being on the FBI's Terrorism Watch List and the No-Fly list. Agents
assigned to the El Centro Border Patrol Station on March 30 arrested a migrant for illegally entering the United States
approximately two miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry. The agents transported the man to the El Centro Processing
Center where all migrants undergo a biometric background investigation and criminal background check, according to
information obtained from CBP officials.
two Yemenis on terror watchlist who tried to cross border from Mexico. U.S. border agents in recent months
arrested two Yemeni men on a terror watchlist in separate incidents as they crossed the border with Mexico illegally, Customs
and Border Protection (CBP) announced on Monday [4/5/2021]. The men, arrested in January and March near a port of entry
in California, were on a U.S. government watchlist for terrorism suspects and a "no-fly" list, CBP said in a press release.
Four People on the FBI's Terror Watchlist Were Arrested at Border? They're already here. This has been a
national security concern for years. Terrorists using the broken border situation to slip through the cracks and plot
mayhem on American soil. The border is in crisis mode right now. The Biden concentration camps are at capacity,
COVID is running rampant, and Democrats simply do not care. There are political calculations to their indifference of
course — but now four people matching names on the FBI's terror watch list have been arrested at the border.
Three were from Yemen, one was from Serbia.
terrorists caught exploiting border crisis, GOP leaders say. The tens of thousands of people rushing the
US-Mexico border in recent weeks include not just Central American migrants, but suspected terrorists, Republican lawmakers
said Monday as they toured the crossing amid the escalating crisis. "Individuals that they have on the watchlist for
terrorism are now starting to exploit the southern border," said Rep. John Katko (R-NY). "We need to wake up."
Katko made the disturbing revelation as he and other members of a Republican contingent led by House Minority Leader Kevin
McCarthy of California addressed reporters in El Paso, Texas.
104 terrorist border crossings. Critics laughed at former President Donald Trump when he claimed that terrorists, "some
real bad ones," had crossed the border just as he was selling Congress on paying for a border wall. But it turns out that Trump
was correct that in the waves of illegal immigrants pouring over the southern border in the last decade were dozens of terrorists and
terror sympathizers. In his new book, America's Covert Border War, The Untold Story of the Nation's Battle to Prevent Jihadist
Infiltration, journalist and former counterterrorism intelligence official Todd Bensman found a model in Europe that could play out
in the United States. There, he found 104 crossed the border. That, he told [The Washington Examiner], "proved the concept
that border crossings by terrorists can and does happen."
Arrest Highlights How Perilous Biden's Immigration Plans Are. On December 16, 2020 the Justice Department
issued a press release about the arrest of alleged terrorist, Cholo Abdi Abdullah, who was conspiring with other terrorists
from an al Qaeda-affiliated terror organization to carry out a 9/11-style terror attack inside the United States. This
substantiates a point I have made on numerous occasions, where the threats posed to America and Americans by foreign radical
Islamic Terrorist organizations are concerned, the "All Clear" has most certainly not been sounded. However apparently
Joe Biden and Kamal Harris never got or, more likely, never read the memo. Biden and Harris have both enthusiastically
promised (threatened) to all but end immigration law enforcement and remove the restrictions that prohibit the entry of
aliens from countries that sponsor terrorism and whose backgrounds cannot be effectively vetted.
Administration Wins Court Victory On Immigration. On Monday [9/14/2020], the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals
handed the Trump administration a victory, ruling 2-1 that a preliminary injunction barring implementation of decisions to
terminate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designations of Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, and El Salvador would be vacated.
Ed Whelan noted at National Review, "It might seem surprising that there would be any controversy over DHS's authority to
terminate a temporary designation years later. But after ordering DHS to provide the administrative
record for its termination decisions, federal district judge Edward Chen granted plaintiffs (TPS beneficiaries from these
countries and their children) injunctive relief based on their claims under the Administrative Procedure Act and the Equal
bust Chinese national illegally crossing into US with $28K worth of gold bars. A Chinese national illegally
crossed into the United States from Canada earlier this week — while carrying a number of gold bars worth more
than $28,500 and about $10,000 cash, authorities said Thursday [8/6/2020]. The 36-year-old woman was arrested by Border
Patrol agents near the town of Amity in Maine on Tuesday, the agency said in a statement. Investigators from the agency
determined the spot where the woman crossed the border by matching footprints with her shoes, according to the
statement. The woman told them she had been legally allowed in Canada as a student, then illegally crossed the border
in the hope of visiting her friend in California. When Border Patrol searched her, they found the cash and about 14.25
ounces of gold bars, according to the statement.
Was Right: Potential Terror Threat at Border as Iranian Illegals Caught in Texas. Of course, you don't
need a flood of terrorists to enter the United States for real damage to occur. Nineteen hijackers were all that were
needed for the deadliest terror attack in history. Given that the United States is by far the biggest target of
terrorism in the world, a porous border represents an especial danger — even if it's not being used, at present,
to smuggle terrorists into the country. For proof, I present the case of three individuals from a terror-sponsoring
nation who were detained at the southern border late last month.
Migrants from Yemen Apprehended in Human Smuggling Op off California Coast. San Diego Sector Border Patrol
agents apprehended eight migrants including three men from Yemen during a failed human smuggling attempt off the California
coast. During the early morning hours of February 21, the Joint Harbor Operations Center notified Border Patrol agents
about a suspicious boat approaching U.S. waters. Border Patrol agents operating surveillance equipment located the boat
in the dense fog, according to information obtained from San Diego Sector Border Patrol officials.
al-Qaida leader arrested in Phoenix, accused of killing two Iraqi police officers. An Iraqi man who is alleged
to have been the leader of a group of Al-Qaida terrorists has been arrested in Phoenix, according to federal officials.
Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri, a 42-year-old Phoenix resident, is wanted to stand trial in Iraq on charges of the premeditated
murder of two Iraqi police officers, according to a statement by Michael Bailey, the U.S. Attorney for Arizona, and Brian A.
Benczkowski, Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department's Criminal Division. Ahmed served as the leader of a
group of al-Qaida terrorists in Al-Fallujah, Iraq, according to information provided by the Iraq government in support of an
extradition request, the statement said.
Chinese Migrants Apprehended in Arizona After Vehicle Pursuit near Border. Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents
apprehended ten Chinese migrants following a police pursuit when the Mexican cartel-connected human smuggler refused to
stop. Additional migrants escaped over an unsecured section of the border into Mexico. Welton Station Border
Patrol agents received a sensor activation notice indicating possible human or drug smuggling activity on the afternoon of
New Year's Eve.
Patrol agent shoots Russian allegedly trying to sneak into US. A Border Patrol agent shot and wounded a Russian
citizen who appeared to be trying to enter the United States illegally from Mexico, the Border Patrol said. The agent
was trying to arrest the man just after 7:15 p.m. on the U.S.-Mexico border east of Lukeville, Ariz., Customs and Border
Protection (CBP) said in a statement. "As the agent attempted to arrest the subject, a physical altercation ensued, and
the agent discharged his firearm, striking the subject," CBP said.
deports Russian operative Marina Butina. The woman at the center of a Russian influence-peddling scheme has
been deported, ICE announced Friday evening [10/25/2019]. Maria Butina was convicted last year of acting as an
unregistered agent of a foreign government, as part of the FBI's efforts to combat the Russian government's meddling in the
2016 election. She was sentenced to 18 months, was released Friday [10/25/2019], and deported back to Russia the
same day, in a flight from Miami to Moscow, the agency said.
Migrants Apprehended After Illegally Crossing into New Mexico. During the past week, El Paso Sector Border
Patrol agents assigned to the Las Cruces. Lordsburg and Santa Teresa Stations disrupted several human smuggling
attempts. The enforcement actions led to the arrest of migrants illegally in the country from China, Cuba, Ecuador, El
Salvador, Honduras, and Mexico, according to information obtained from El Paso Sector Border Patrol officials. The New
Mexico border with Mexico falls under the El Paso Sector's area of responsibility.
President Confirms Alert over 3 ISIS Terror Suspects Headed to Border. Mexico's President and his top security
official confirmed the warning by the U.S. government about three ISIS terror suspects who were likely headed north.
The three individuals were recently detained in Nicaragua. Breitbart News first reported exclusively about a security
alert issued by U.S. Homeland Security which warned Mexico about three ISIS terror suspects.
ISIS plotted to send
westerners to U.S through Mexico border: report. A chilling confession from a captured ISIS fighter has shed
light on how the terrorist group intended to exploit the vulnerabilities of the U.S. border with Mexico, using English
speakers and westerners to take advantage of smuggling routes and target financial institutions. Seized ISIS fighter
Abu Henricki, a Canadian citizen with dual citizenship with Trinidad, last month said that he was sought out by the violent
insurgency's leadership to attack the U.S. from a route starting in Central America, according to a study by the
International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE) and published in Homeland Security Today.
and Immigration: A New Front for Troublemaking. Recently, Islamist groups such as the Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have opened up a new field of activity. Going beyond lobbying against the Trump
administration's "Muslim ban" and caps on refugee admittance, CAIR and its allies have enthusiastically jumped into the
larger fight for open immigration in general, becoming involved in many protests focused on the U.S.-Mexican border.
For example, CAIR-San Diego held a "Prayer Beyond Borders" event "to pray for peace and justice in the borderlands," and CAIR
National was one of the sponsors for a series of Mother's Day rallies "to call for [an] end to immigrant family separation
[and] child detention."
Sleeper Agent Convicted of Plotting U.S. Terror Attacks. Tensions and hostilities between the United States and
Iran have been ramping up and while the news media focuses on how Iran has been operating throughout the Middle East
threatening our allies including Israel, the media has ignored that operatives of Hezbollah have, for many years, been
operating widely throughout Latin America in conjunction with drug cartels that engage in the smuggling of huge quantities of
narcotics into the United States as well as huge numbers of aliens. This not only provides a major source of revenue
for Iran to fund its wide-ranging terrorist operations but to provide Iran with opportunities to move sleeper agents into the
Secret Weapon Against America Is Our Own Sanctuary Laws. With the Trump administration turning up the heat via
economic sanctions and the dissolution of the Obama-era nuclear deal, Iran may be getting desperate. Direct military
confrontation with the U.S. would be a losing proposition for Iran. Terrorism, however, is a low-risk, high-reward
bet. If America were weakened by another massive terror attack in the homeland, it would advance the interests of the
ruling Iranian mullahs and give them greater hegemony over the Middle East. That's where our immigration laws become a
factor. While America fights with itself over what to do about our porous borders, the bad actors of the world have
been paying attention.
New York Times Says "Give Trump His Border Money". [Scroll down] While the Times manages to get the top
line decision right, they still had to get their shots in. "There is no pressing national security threat —
no invasion of murderers, drug cartels or terrorists. No matter how often Mr. Trump delivers such warnings, they
bear little resemblance to the truth," it said. They of course base that on absolutely nothing. When you have
100,000 un-vetted people crossing in a few weeks time, the idea that the drug cartels and gangs aren't heavily taking
advantage of that is nonsensical. They are out to make money, among other things. As the system is being overrun,
it's common sense that bad actors would work toward their own gain. The Times assuming otherwise is pure gaslighting.
who lied to get U.S. citizenship sentenced to prison, will be deported after. A convicted terrorist who was
able to lie his way to U.S. citizenship has been sentenced to prison and will be deported afterward, according to CNN.
Vallmoe Shqaire, 51, became a U.S. citizen in 2008, even after doing time in Israeli prison for attempting to blow up a
bus as a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization. Shqaire had been recruited by the PLO in the 1980s and attempted
the bus attack in 1998. It failed, and no one was hurt, but Shqaire still did four years in prison in Israel.
of Illegal Aliens from Terrorist Nations Live in U.S. after Being "Deported". Months after Judicial Watch
reported that migrants from terrorist nations try to enter the U.S. via Mexico at record rates, government figures show that
more than 10,000 illegal aliens from countries that sponsor terrorism currently live here. It's not clear how they
entered the country but federal authorities know about them because they have either been deported or have final removal
orders pending. Nevertheless, they are not in custody and roam freely in unsuspecting communities throughout
America. The distressing statistics were obtained from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by a public interest
group that favors secure borders and exposes the harms of mass migration.
Over 10K Illegal Aliens in U.S. from Terrorist-Sponsored Countries. There are more than 10,000 illegal aliens
living in the United States who are from foreign countries that have been designated as state sponsors of terrorism by the
State Department. Newly obtained federal data from the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) reveals there to be over
10,000 illegal aliens living in the U.S. from countries that are state sponsors of terrorism, including Iran, North Korea,
Syria, and Sudan.
from 50 countries illegally entering US: Border Patrol official. Illegal immigrants from 50 different
countries — including China, Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt and Romania — have been caught crossing into the
US from Mexico, a top Border Patrol official testified Tuesday [4/9/2019]. "People are traveling across hemispheres to
attempt to illegally enter the US, using the same pathways as the Central Americans," Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Patrol
Agent Rodolfo Karisch said at a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing. The revelation came as President Trump said
he would not relaunch his administration's policy of separating children from their families at the southern border —
but continued railing against the surge of Central American asylum seekers seeking entry to the US.
national apprehended trying to enter US illegally hiding in a train from Mexico. A 46-year-old Syrian man has
been detained for attempting to enter the United States from Mexico illegally by hiding in a train, border protection agents
say. Customs and Border Protection officials report agents apprehended the man last weekend, after a train from Mexico
passed through an imaging system at the downtown Calexico port screening center in southern California. "CPB officers
noticed an anomaly on the lower side of the commercial railcar," leading to the compartment on the outside of the train where
the man was hiding. The man was taken to a secure location, where officials confirmed, partly through fingerprinting,
that he is a Syrian national without documentation authorizing his entry into the United States.
Grande Valley Border Chief: We Have Intercepted Migrants from Bangladesh, Turkey, Romania and China.
Rodolfo Karisch, chief of the U.S. Border Patrol's Rio Grande Valley Sector, told the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on
Oversight, Management and Accountability on Thursday, that the Border Patrol in his sector has intercepted illegal aliens
trying to enter the United States "from 40 different countries, including Bangladesh, Turkey, Romania and China." "I
want to provide some perspective on the challenges facing our men and women at the Southwest border," Karisch told the
committee in his opening statement. "Though I cannot speak for all of the components of Customs and Border Protection,
I can provide a first-hand account of the complex border-security environment and ask for your assistance in helping our
frontline men and women. "In our line of work, Border Patrol agents rarely know exactly who or what they will
encounter," he said.
Who Targeted Americans Takes Over Mexican Cartel on Texas Border. A verified and convicted terrorist who
attacked a U.S. Consulate with a grenade and automatic rifle fire has taken over the ruthless Los Zetas cartel, a group
headquartered at the Texas border in the Nuevo Laredo-Laredo metropolitan border area. Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, sits
immediately across the border from Laredo, Texas, and is the only urban location along the entire U.S.-Mexico Border that
does not have any fencing or constructed security barrier of any kind. The convicted terrorist, Hector Raul Luna Luna,
is known as "El Tory" and was convicted in the 2008 terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey, Mexico. He was
released from prison due to bribes paid by Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) and has now taken over the dominant faction
of Los Zetas, Cartel Del Noreste (CDN), to open up the lucrative and unsecured border corridor into Texas.
who say there is no threat of terrorists crossing our border are delusional. According to the Democrats and the
mainstream media, Americans shouldn't be concerned about terrorists crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Ever since
President Donald Trump began highlighting the connection between weak border security and terrorist infiltration, his
political opponents have done everything to downplay the real consequences of our broken immigration system.
Prayer Rugs at the Mexican Border: How
Important? The pundits who responded so energetically to the president's casual citation of a news article need
prayer rugs to prove the presence of border migration from Islamic nations about as much as astronauts orbiting the planet
need Eratosthenes's calculations to know the Earth is round. [...] Outlets penned whole articles dedicated to wrongly stating
that such migration isn't happening or, as one in Vox stated, was happening "at vanishingly small rates". A Washington Post
piece said of the prayer rug report, in raising the prospect that Islamic nation migrants were reaching the border, that it
was "similar to the claims of a conspiracy theory that has long been popular with the far-right and anti-Muslim figures and
publications." The Post writer even went to the research length of listing "prayer rug rumors, their debunking, and their
reanimation during border security conversations over the years." The overwhelming gist of all the blowback was "Trump
Lied Again!" and that it's not true migrants from Muslim-majority countries cross the southern border or that it's a national
security issue. But as I pointed out in a posting here very recently, that perception runs into the brick wall of facts
on the ground and President Barack Obama's DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, who believed the threat of land border-crossing migration
from Islamic countries had become so grave by 2016 that he ordered a massive, government-wide initiative to counter it.
evidence of Muslim terrorists crossing our Southern Border. Ranchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico border
have been finding Islamic prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain
anonymous for fear of retaliation by the drug cartels, many of whom are heavily involved in human smuggling.
rancher: 'We've found prayer rugs out here. It's unreal'. Ranchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico
border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain
anonymous for fear of retaliation by cartels who move the individuals. The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the
Muslim faith kneel on as they worship. "There's a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico," the rancher said.
"People, the general public, just don't get the terrorist threats of that. That's what's really scary. You don't
know what's coming across. We've found prayer rugs out here. It's unreal. It's not just Mexican nationals
that are coming across."
Trump Will Win the Border Wall Security Argument. The president will win the political argument over the need for a
border wall, and the reasons are simple: (1) most common-sense Americans agree with the need; and (2) democrats,
only comfortable within their echo-chamber, always over-play their hand. It really is that simple. There is a genuine
crisis at the border; and illegal entry into the United States is a national security issue.
Patrol Officer Shares Scale of International Influx into U.S. Southern Border. Straight from the epicenter of
the issue, the U.S. Border Patrol outlines a single day of captured illegal aliens from countries other than Central America
and Mexico. Just yesterday [1/9/2019] alone over 113 illegal entry apprehensions from Pakistan, India, China, Ecuador,
Romania, Nicaragua and more. This CBP data is just from one border state in one day.
Becoming a Potential Base for Terrorists to Attack the US. The US and Canada share the longest undefended
border in the world. There hasn't been a reason to defend it because there hasn't been a serious threat from either
country in a couple hundred years. There is now. Canada is today the happy home of thousands of radical
Islamists, ex-ISIS fighters and the Muslim Brotherhood. Their numbers continue to grow, with Islamists infiltrating the
Canadian government on several levels. Many Americans assume that all is peaceful and well with their northern
neighbor. But security experts here warn that by welcoming radical Islamists, Canada now presents a danger to the
Border patrol apprehends four Muslims from Bangladesh illegally crossing into US. Why are they entering the
country that way? It isn't hard to understand. The Investigative Project reported in January 2017: "A
report by the Texas Department of Public Safety raises concerns about ISIS terrorists using the Mexican border both to enter
and leave the country. It noted that at least 13 aspiring terrorists have tried to cross into Mexico, or considered
trying, since 2012."
[Scroll down] Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales stated last Thursday [10/11/2018] that his security forces had caught
"close to 100 people completely linked to terrorist issues, with ISIS and that not only have we arrested them within our
territory, but they have been deported to their countries of origin." Guatemala's Secretary of Strategic Intelligence, Mario
Duarte, confirmed that "the individuals intercepted, detained, prosecuted or returned to their country of origin, is close to
100." He referred to "several citizens of Syrian origin who were detained with false documents were detained, for which
they were prosecuted and subjected to criminal proceedings," and then deported in 2016.
Homeland Security secretary says
there are 'absolutely' Middle Easterners in migrant caravans. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told
Fox News that intelligence "absolutely" indicates that the migrant caravans traveling through Mexico to the United States
include people from the Middle East and Southeast Asia. "We absolutely see people from the Middle East, from southeast
Asia, from other parts of the world," Nielsen said. "They are not just from Central America. "We don't always
know exactly who they are," she continued. "What I can tell you is we stopped 3,000 people last year at the southwest
border who had patterns of travel similar to a terrorist. We call those special interest aliens."
to the United States Southern Border. As explained already at some length in my recent CIS Backgrounder,
migrants from Muslim-majority countries routinely get to the U.S. Southwest border by first reaching Latin America and
traveling smuggling routes northward. Human smuggling networks that move these so-called "special interest aliens"
through Latin America pose a recognized vulnerability of terrorist infiltration, which has driven significant American
homeland security efforts to degrade them. These efforts are chiefly led by ICE Homeland Security Investigations
stationed throughout Latin America. To those of us who pay attention to related policy and operational matters, one
important source of unclassified information can always be counted on to refresh analytical thinking. It comes from the
U.S. State Department's annual "Country Reports on Terrorism" by the agency's Bureau of Counterterrorism. The latest
report, reflecting calendar year 2017, was just released this month.
ISIS Terrorists Caught in Guatemala as Central American Caravan Heads to U.S. In a startling revelation, Guatemala's president
announced in the country's largest newspaper that nearly 100 ISIS terrorists have been apprehended in the impoverished Central American nation.
Why should Americans care about this? A caravan of Central American migrants is making its way north. Let's not forget that Guatemala
is one of the countries that bombarded the U.S. with illegal immigrant minors under Barack Obama's open border free-for-all. They came in
droves from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala through the Mexican border and for years Uncle Sam rolled out the welcome mat offering housing,
food, medical treatment and a free education[.] A terrorist could have easily slipped in considering the minors, coined Unaccompanied Alien
Children (UAC), were not properly vetted and some turned out to be violent gangbangers who went on to commit heinous crimes in their adopted land
of opportunity. In fact, the nation's most violent street gang, Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), was energized by the barrage of UACs.
Fighter Omar Ameen Easily Achieved Refugee Entry Into the U.S. — Arrested Yesterday For Extradition To
Iraq. The U.S. Dept of Justice detained ISIS fighter Omar Ameen in Sacramento, California, yesterday [8/15/2018] pending
extradition back to Iraq on murder charges. Incredibly Ameen gained State Department entry into the U.S. through the refugee
system. Despite the claims of the Obama administration, Omar Ameen's ability to enter the United States is a clear example of
weaknesses within the refugee process and lies told by former administration officials about the security therein.
Iraqi man who fought, killed for ISIS entered US as refugee under Obama. An Iraqi national who fought for the
Islamic State and pretended to be a refugee to enter the United States during former President Barack Obama's second term was
arrested Wednesday and has begun legal proceedings to be deported to face murder charges for killing a police officer in his
home country. FBI agents from the Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Omar Abdulsattar Ameen at an apartment building
in Sacramento, Calif., on a warrant an Iraqi federal court had issued in May. The FBI had been investigating Ameen
since 2016, according to a release by the Justice Department.
'We stop 10 terrorists every day from getting into this country'. The immigration bill could stall on Capitol
Hill for all sorts of reasons, some of them predictable, some not. At the moment Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of
the House Homeland Security Committee, has a specific source of concern over the status of the legislation as debate
continues and the wheels of Congress only twitch in response. The Texas Republican says national security is at
stake. But he assured "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace that he remains an "eternal optimist" about the potential
passage of the immigration bill, which he said is merit-based and not an "amnesty."
Nielsen tells Fox News more than a dozen known or suspected terrorists try to enter US each day. More than a
dozen known or suspected terrorists are trying to get into the U.S. on any given day, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen
Nielsen told Fox News, citing new internal department data. "People think of border security in very different ways but
to me it's very simple: border security is national security," Nielsen said. "What we see at the Department of Homeland
Security, we see 15 terrorists either planning to travel or actually traveling to the United States each day, known and
suspected terrorists. So that means they are coming through our legal land, port and air but they could be coming
across that (southwest) border."
group sues to block Trump terrorism report. Two anti-Trump organizations filed a lawsuit Monday [4/9/2018] arguing that a
government report earlier this year linking immigrants to most of the country's terrorism cases since 2001 is so misleading that it
violates federal law. The request seeks to recruit federal judges to police the accuracy of the administration, in what —
if it's successful — could become a model for anti-Trump groups to push back on a president they see as having a tenuous
connection to the truth. The January report concluded that 73 percent of the 549 people convicted of international
terrorism between 2001 and 2016 were foreign born.
Nationals Continue to Flood Texas Border. Border Patrol agents in the Laredo Sector of Texas continue to find
more Bangladesh nationals being smuggled across the border from Mexico. Agents arrested 12 over the Easter weekend
alone. The Laredo Sector continues to lead the nation in the apprehension of Bangladeshis smuggled into the U.S. from
Mexico. Over the Easter weekend, agents arrested 12 in three separate incidents, according to U.S. Customs and Border
Protection (CBP). The crossings all took place in southern Laredo where border barriers are virtually non-existent.
"It goes to show that our agents are arresting people from all over the world on a daily basis. Their intentions for
entering the country illegally can only be determined after they have been arrested," Laredo Sector Assistant Chief Patrol
Agent Gabriel Acosta said in a written statement.
Tim Scott: Porous Border 'Is Certainly A National Security Issue'. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), a member of the
Armed Services Committee, said without an act of Congress, President Trump cannot use military funding to pay for his border
wall, as Trump suggested he might do. "I think it would take an act of Congress to make sure that we prioritize and
appropriate the dollars for that objective," Scott told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday [4/1/2018].
vetting: State Dept. to demand tourists' social media history. The State Department will publish new
rules this week to require most visitors and immigrants to the U.S. to divulge their recent social media histories, carrying
out one of the key security enhancements from President Trump's extreme vetting executive order. Travelers would also
be asked to list phone numbers, email addresses and international travel during the previous five years, and to detail any
immigration problems they have had, whether with the U.S. or elsewhere.
migration must mean moral merit, too. The White House has listed a phenomenal 15 Jihadis who have been caught in acts of terrorism
against the U.S., all because they were let in based on winning diversity lottery slots, or were able to take advantage of chain migration
privileges. [...] The White House uses these examples to argue against these two destructive policies, which are already unpopular based on the
numbers of poorly educated, ill-adapted nationals from bad countries who have little chance of succeeding in the U.S. and who are unlikely to
like it here anyway. Such immigrants are heavy consumers of social services, and as they assimilate into the underclass, eventually become
Democratic voters. The whole thing pretty well amounts to importing poverty.
Shows 15 Jihadis Who Got Visas by Lottery or Chain Migration. White House officials rolled out a list of 15
visa-lottery jihadis and chain-migration terrorists to pressure Democrats towards a compromise on the president's "framework"
amnesty-and-immigration plan. The February 2 list of jihadis includes a senior leader in the Islamic counter-attack
against personal freedom, Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook. He is an "alleged United States Hamas leader [who] received his
green card through a predecessor program to the visa lottery," said the statement. "Marzook was deported in 1997 for
merit-based immigration system. If we can't control — or even know — who enters this
country, it's much harder to keep people safe. This is not a hypothetical matter. A new report from the
Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security reveals that nearly three out of every four people convicted of
international terrorism-related offenses in federal courts since 9/11 were born outside of this country. Terrorists and
their sympathizers shouldn't be allowed in this country, and yet this report shows that hundreds of them have endangered the
lives of the citizens we work for. The report goes on to state that over the same time, U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement has removed more than 1,700 aliens with national security concerns, and that the vast majority of the FBI's open
counterterrorism investigations in the United States arise from threats by international terrorists.
House: 73% of convicted terrorists since 9/11 were non-citizens. Between September 11, 2001 and December 31,
2016, 549 people were convicted of international terror offenses in United States federal court. Of those convicted
terrorists, 254 were foreign-born non-citizens accounting for 73% of the convictions, according to a senior administration official
who provided the data for reporters during a background briefing Tuesday [1/16/2018]. The high percentage of foreign-born
non-citizens convicted of terror activities in the United States "highlights the importance of reforming the immigration system,"
the administration official said, including the "importance of ending the practices of chain migration and the visa lottery system."
In addition to the terror convictions since 9/11, 1,716 aliens have been removed from the country for "national security concerns," the
administration official said.
Visa Lottery Winner Offered to Kill Obama for ISIS. Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev was both lucky and
evil. His luck was demonstrated when he won admission to the United States through the diversity visa lottery; his
evilness, by his stated willingness to assassinate the president of the United States or commit a terrorist attack in New
York City — if he could not travel to Syria to join the Islamic State, and if that is what the Islamic State
ordered him to do. When Juraboev was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Oct. 27, 2017, New York City Police
Commissioner James O'Neill summarized his case in a statement released by the U.S. Justice Department. "The defendant
in this case lived in Brooklyn while making plans to travel to Syria to support a design(at)ed terrorist organization,"
O'Neill said. "If that was not successful, the defendant schemed of bombing Coney Island or killing the president of
the United States."
ICE Didn't Follow Procedure For Checking Illegal Immigrants' Ties to Terrorism. During the Obama
administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement was not following proper procedures when checking if illegal aliens were
known terrorists, jeopardizing national security, according to an audit. The office of inspector general found that
between 2013 and 2015, ICE was not screening illegal immigrants who had been released for terrorist ties. Every single
case of a suspected terrorist reviewed by the inspector general included errors, where ICE officials were not in compliance
with security standards. "ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) faces challenges in implementing the Known or
Suspected Terrorist Encounter Protocol (KSTEP) screening process, which is used to identify aliens who may be known or
suspected terrorists," the inspector general said. "Although ERO uses KSTEP to screen all aliens who are in ICE custody,
ERO policy does not require continued screening of the approximately 2.37 million aliens when released and under ICE
supervision." Between 2013 and 2015 there were 142 cases of illegal immigrants who were detained and identified as
"known or suspected terrorists." The inspector general reviewed 40 of those cases.
averages are terrible. [Scroll down] Tens of millions of dollars sluice though annually from U.S. taxpayers
to the resettlement agencies, most of which have deceptively churchy-sounding names. Then, after refugees have been settled
in our country a few weeks, the agencies hand them over to municipal, state, and national welfare services, with untold billions
of further costs to the public fisc for healthcare, education, housing, and law enforcement stretching away into the future.
That's the process by which the U.S.A. acquired a big population of Somalis — around 150,000, of whom about half live
in Minnesota. The Census Bureau estimates that 74,000 people in Minnesota speak Somali. There's the Minnesota
connection. Why so many Somalis in Minnesota? It's a combination of things. [...] And then, once the so-called
refugee is settled in the U.S.A., he's free to move from one place to another. The most attractive place for him to
move to is whichever place has the biggest concentration of his fellow-countrymen. So there's a snowball effect:
augmented, once people have been here long enough to get citizenship, by chain migration. Somalis are black; they're
also, for the most part, Muslim. So they are twofers for Designated Victim Status, and white Americans better not
even hint at anything negative about them.
Harrisburg 'a terror attack': Homeland Security. The Department of Homeland Security referred to the three
shootings in Harrisburg on Friday as "a terror attack." Tyler Q. Houlton, acting press secretary for agency, tweeted a
statement Saturday about the incidents. Houlton said that Ahmed El-Mofty was a naturalized U.S. citizen who was admitted
to the country from Egypt on a family-based immigration visa. "The long chain of migration that led to the suspect's
admission into the United States was initiated years ago by a distant relative of the suspect," Houlton said in a release. "One
of the most recent links in that chain was an extended family member admitted into the United States from Egypt on an F24 visa."
Security says chain migration let terrorism-related suspects into U.S. The Department of Homeland Security
said chain migration is the common element in two cases allegedly tied to terrorism activities, according to a statement
released Saturday [12/23/2017]. In the statement on Twitter, Acting Press Secretary Tyler Houlton said DHS "can confirm
the suspect involved in a terror attack in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and another suspect arrested on terror-related money
laundering charges were both beneficiaries of extended family chain migration."
Yates's Rebellion Ends with a Whimper. Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates has had a whirlwind year as
the left's newest darling. She became an instant political celebrity when she refused to defend President Donald
Trump's executive order on immigration and travel from terror-prone countries — the so-called "travel ban."
Trump promptly fired her, which earned her a Senate hearing, a graduation speech at Harvard Law School, and talk about a bright
future as a Democratic Party politician. But Yates's rebellion ended with a whimper on Monday [12/4/2017], as the U.S.
Supreme Court knocked down several lower court injunctions and let the third version of Trump's travel ban stand, for now.
Court Allows Latest Travel Ban To Take Full And Immediate Effect. The U.S. Supreme Court Monday [12/4/2017]
allowed the latest iteration of President Donald Trump's travel ban to take full effect for the time being, as lower courts
continue to wrestle with lawsuits fighting the ban. The order permits the administration to enforce the president's
September proclamation, which suspends entry of foreign nationals from seven nations, including Chad, Iran, Libya, North
Korea, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor noted their dissent from the
In a Win for
Trump, Supreme Court Upholds 'Extreme Vetting' Travel Ban. President Donald Trump won a big victory Monday in
the Supreme Court, which upheld his "extreme vetting" on immigration into the United States. The dispute over the
policy stemmed from its application to six majority-Muslim countries. Lower federal courts in California, Hawaii, and
Maryland ruled the ban was unconstitutional. In September, the administration revised the policy to add North Korea,
Venezuela, and Chad to the list. It dropped Sudan and kept Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen.
'defense bill' imports 3,500 more Afghan immigrants. In the United States of Orwell, a "defense bill" means
bringing in more immigrants from one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Our backwards strategy of spending
up to $4 trillion in the Middle East primarily to referee Islamic civil wars and even grow Iranian hegemony — all
for the purpose of defending our homeland — ends in bringing in more Islamists to our shores. [...] Now Congress
is set to bring in more Afghans, when the country is more volatile than ever and it's nearly impossible to distinguish a
Taliban operative from non-Taliban.
Marxism and its discontents. The deadly Islamic terrorist truck attack in New York City on Halloween exposed a
caldron of issues, from national security to immigration policy. But it's about much more than that. The attack
and its aftermath have shone a light on the left's campaign to radically transform America through cultural Marxism.
That's the revolutionary philosophy that aims to cure inequality by destroying traditional Western culture. This
includes massive, unrestricted immigration.
Leftists Aid the Jihadis' Deadly Cause. The West and the United States are dealing with a supremacist, expansionist religion that
seeks to annex the entire world by any means necessary, especially violence. As in Austria, which the Nazis took over in 1938, the Islamschluss
finds willing collaborators, like the weasely Herr Zeller in The Sound of Music. In America, the collaborators bring in Muslims by any
means necessary, such as the "diversity visa" of Sayfullo Saipov. The Diversity Visa program, launched by New York Senator Chuck Schumer in
1990, makes 50,000 visas available, on a random basis, to people from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. Sayfullo
Saipov is one of the lottery winners, though what he has to do with "diversity" is a mystery. [...] Saipov had no skill America needs, but the
Diversity Visa program is all about bringing in people America doesn't need.
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.
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.
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.
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

a former Homeland Security agent and expert on terrorism describes the screening process that we have been told is so long and so thorough.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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?
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.
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.
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.
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).
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
'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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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[.]
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?
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
'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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Somewhat related: 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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."
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.
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

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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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."
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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].
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tour. How the State Department invites and pays for extremists to
visit the US. Inviting members of extremist organizations or individuals that

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.

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.

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.
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.

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
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?
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.
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.
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.

1988, four Mexican military troops with automatic weapons 'invaded' San Diego. On Sunday, March 13, 1988, at
10:25 P.M., four Mexican military troops wearing camouflage uniforms and brandishing automatic weapons penetrated a mile and
a half into U.S. territory south of San Diego, Calif. Their entry point was an unfenced stretch of beach that separated
Playas de Tijuana (Tijuana Beach), Mexico from Imperial Beach, Calif. Within sight of the first group of American
residential condominiums at the end of Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach, the Mexicans accosted a group of a dozen Americans
who were picnicking on the beach, pointing their loaded machine guns at the picnickers and ordering them to lie flat on the
ground. Before the tense situation could escalate any further, the group was spooked by a U.S. Border Patrol helicopter
that spotted the incursion and landed on the beach.
Forgotten Fact: In 1917, Mexico Considered Invading the U.S. This was the famous Zimmermann Telegram.
Decoded by the British, who passed it on to the Americans, it became a justification — along with unrestricted submarine
warfare — for the U.S. declaration of war on Germany in April 1917. In the end, Mexico turned down the
proposal. But what if Mexico had declared war on the United States? In fact, Mexican president Venustiano Carranza
did order his government to study the German offer, according to Friedrich Katz, in his book The Secret War in Mexico.
Carranza's decision wasn't surprising. In Mexican eyes, the United States had illegally seized one-third of Mexico's territory
during the 1847 Mexican-American War, including what are now the states of California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico.
In 1916, a U.S. Army expeditionary force had entered Mexico in pursuit of the notorious revolutionary Pancho Villa, who had raided
Ocasio-Cortez: 'Reconquistador!' Hispanic rights activists postulate a land called Aztlan, originally
extending up to the State of Oregon, all of Texas, and the Western third of the U.S.A. They want to seize the Southwest
of the United States and Texas and (re)create a new, independent nation. They envision that they are taking "back" this
land. [...] In reality, of course, these populations do not speak Mayan or Aztec or any Native American languages. They
speak Spanish. Their names are Spanish. Their cultural features are Spanish. The Conquistadors —
the Spaniards from Europe — conquered and occupied South America, Central America, and the islands of the Caribbean
basin. But they claim the United States as well. There can be little doubt that Ocasio-Cortez lacks the education
and analytical ability to comprehend any of this, but she has joined this movement with both feet.
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.
Raza Declares War on Border Wall, Demands "Reconquista" of Southwest. The National Council of La Raza, an

exploiting illegal immigration to bring about 'La Reconquista', a violent overthrow of the southern U.S. states that would be absorbed into

these third party groups like La Raza that are currently receiving hundreds of millions of dollars directly from the banks under the DOJ
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."

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.

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."
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.
