One cannot overstate the seriousness of this issue as Obama continues to ignore the safety of Americans in favor of admitting new Democrat voters. As you read this, don’t forget that both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton want much more of this.
The Obama administration is granting residence to 170,000 people from Muslim-majority nations this year alone. It goes on every year.
Efforts by Congress to investigate the immigration histories of at least 113 foreign-born individuals snagged on terror charges since 2014 have been blocked by the Obama administration. There are at least 1,000 open investigations into ISIS members residing in the United States, sources said.
Senator Cruz says new terror cases crop up every day. He is attempting to find out how the Obama administration is screening these individuals.
“Almost every day there is a new case that documents the relentless attacks being waged against our nation,” said Cruz. “We have militants who have infiltrated waves of refugees to come to American and plot attacks. We have Americans who have travelled abroad to train returning to wage jihad here. We have home-grown terrorists who are receiving instruction online to hatch attacks.”
“We have to stop treating this pattern as the isolated actions of lone wolves,” Cruz added. “They are a pack.”
Networks of radicalized individuals are already forming within the United States due to a massive influx of more than 680,000 immigrants from Muslim-majority nations during the past five years, according to Stephen Miller, spokesman for Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.), another lawmaker who has worked to expose flaws in the U.S. immigration system.
Meanwhile, previously undisclosed documents released by the State Department on Wednesday reveal that it has known since 2004 that “Arab extremists” are being smuggled into the U.S. via Mexico.
Check out the telegraph report from 2004:
President Bush has launched a drive to halt illegal immigration across America’s porous southern border, amid growing fears that terrorists may be using Mexico as a base camp before heading to Arizona, Texas and California.
A string of alarming incidents has convinced Bush administration officials that lax immigration rules, designed to cope with the huge numbers of illegal entrants from Mexico, have become a significant loophole in the war on terror.
Over the past month, border agents from Arizona and Texas have anonymously reported recent encounters with dozens of Arab men, who have made their way across the 2,000-mile Mexican border.
Patrol agents told one Arizona newspaper that 77 males “of Middle Eastern descent” were apprehended in June in two separate incidents. All were trekking through the Chiricahua mountains and are believed to have been part of a larger group of illegal immigrants. Many were released pending immigration hearings. According to Solomon Ortiz, the Congressman for Corpus Christi in Texas, similar incidents are “happening all over the place. It’s very, very scary”.
The two groups of Arab males were discovered by patrol guards from Willcox, Arizona. “These guys didn’t speak Spanish,” said one field agent, “and they were speaking to each other in Arabic. It’s ridiculous that we don’t take this more seriously. We’re told not to say a thing to the media.” A colleague told the paper: “All the men had brand-new clothing and the exact same cut of moustache.” Local ranchers have also reported a rise in the sightings of large groups of young males.
Last month, border patrol agents at McAllen airport, Texas, arrested a woman believed to be Pakistani, who was carrying a false South African passport…
“We have to coordinate our actions to protect ourselves—and since President Obama told us last night [at the State of the Union] he has no intention of taking robust action to defeat this enemy, Congress must act by passing TRIPA,” a piece of legislation that would place a three-year hold on granting residency in the United States for refugees coming from nations where al Qaeda and ISIS control significant territory, Cruz said.
He also called for the passage of another stalled piece of legislation that would cancel the U.S. citizenship of any person who travels abroad to join a terror group.
Political correctness is holding this back.
The Obama administration’s refusing to release the immigration records of those 113 foreigners brought up on recent terrorism charges, including the San Bernardino shooters.
The administration, including the Departments of State and Homeland Security, has withheld this information from the senators since August.
They will not say why.
“There is no question that the U.S. remains vulnerable to infiltration by radical Islamists on a wide variety of fronts,” said Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
The government doesn’t even know how many people on expired visas are still in the United States.
The visa system is still as corrupt as it was when the San Bernardino fiancé terrorist entered the country.
