According to a highly comprehensive review of America’s southern and northern borders and an analysis by top national security experts, the U.S.-Canada border is the likely path for terrorists to invade the country, according to The Washington Examiner.
Canada’s new PM has opened the borders, 25,000 Syrian refugees are pouring into the US, and there is a known nexus between known or suspected terrorists in eastern Canada and the northern parts of the U.S.
Sen. Ron Johnson, Wisconsin Republican and chairman of the committee, said the borders are not secure.
The panel’s new 100-page report, linked at the end, is based on hearings, interviews, terror arrests and the opinion of experts. There is a substantial threat from ISIS on our border because of how easy it is to cross in.
“Security observers have argued that Canada represents a substantial vulnerability, because it provides immigrant visas to individuals who pose a significant threat,” said the report, “The State of America’s Border Security.”
“Witnesses testified before the committee that if someone gets into Canada, they will most likely be able to enter the U.S.”
For thousands of miles of border, only a six-inch deep ditch and forestlands stop them. There is no fencing.
Johnson said the northern and the southern border are pathways for Islamic terrorists as they team up with drug cartels who operate without limit in Mexico.
Those cartels “are also combining with transnational criminal organizations, potentially Islamic terror organizations,” he said.
Up north, he wants a “threat analysis” to see what more can be done to stop terrorists from slipping in. “Start now,” he said.
Earlier this year, Johnson said the president told him not to scare people with the truth about the budget. “Ron, we can’t show the American public numbers that big. If we do we’ll scare ‘em. Besides Ron, we can’t do all the work. We have to leave something for future presidents, future Congresses.”
Apparently Obama feels the same way about telling the truth about our borders and our national security.
Johnson said he tells people the “harsh reality. That’s why they call him Mr. Sunshine. The reason they don’t want to tell the truth is they’d have to do something”.
To illustrate, he tells a story of a meeting in the White House with a small group of Republicans to discuss the projected deficit, which over the next thirty years will reach about $126 trillion according to the CBO (Congressional Budget Office).
During the meeting, Obama claimed he wanted everything on the table on both the expense and revenue side of the ledger.
Johnson urged Obama to show the numbers to the American people, saying, “Take to the American people the truth. Show them the depth of the problem so we can collectively admit we have the problem.”
Obama replied, “Ron, we can’t show the American public numbers that big. If we do we’ll scare ’em. Besides Ron, we can’t do all the work. We have to leave something for future presidents, future Congresses.”
Johnson calls it a bi-partisan problem of a government filled with “reality deniers.”
“If you really want to sum up the problem with liberalism in general is they deny reality. They deny the reality of basic human behavior, describing how there are many well-intentioned programs that have destroyed the American family.”
