The numbers are in and the findings are less than adequate, and Americans ought to be afraid – be very afraid.
Isn’t that what Donald Trump, Republican pick for president, has been warning for months, all the while touting the need to clamp down on open borders and pay better attention to the types of people – including their nationalities and religious preferences – who cross into America?
From Breitbart’s story:
“While President Barack Obama’s administration, and his would-be successor, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton, have promised to increase the amount of people they bring into the United States through immigration, refugee, and asylum programs, the Republican nominee for president, Donald J. Trump, has promised to put the brakes on allowing potential terrorists into the United States.
“[But] at least ten times in the last couple years … terrorists have exploited the Obama-Clinton immigration weaknesses to get into the United States.”
Among the names, as reported by Breitbart:
“Twenty-one-year-old Munir Abdulkader of West Chester, Ohio, pleads guilty, according to the Department of Justice, ‘to attempting to kill officers and employees of the United States, providing material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.’
“According to the Columbus Dispatch, Abdulkader is a ‘native of Eritrea in east Africa’ who ‘became a citizen of the United States in September 2006.'”
Another, Breibart found:
“The Washington Post’s Rachel Weiner and Joe Helm detailed the story of Mohamed Bailor Jalloh—an immigrant from Sierra Leone—who was caught plotting a terrorist attack in support of the Islamic State in Virginia.
“’When Mohamed Bailor Jalloh walked into the Blue Ridge Arsenal gun store and indoor target range in Chantilly, Va., on Friday to purchase a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, he had no idea that his every move was being monitored by the FBI,’ Weiner and Helm wrote on July 5. ‘Jalloh, 26, spent about 10 minutes in the shop before attempting to buy the assault weapon, but he was told that he did not have the required three forms of identification to make the purchase, said Earl Curtis, the store’s owner. Jalloh told employees that he would return.’
“Jalloh had apparently been a former member of the Virginia National Guard—and that was how The Washington Post’s headline identified him. What the leading newspaper did not say until 16 paragraphs into the article is that Jalloh is not from the United States. …
“[I]t all started, of course, when the U.S. government decided to let this guy into the United States in the first place.”
And then there were these:
“Guled Ali Omar, a Somalian born in a refugee camp in Kenya but later admitted into the United States as a refugee and subsequently granted citizenship by the U.S. government, was one of three “Minnesota Men” convicted in June of conspiring to join the Islamic State and “commit murder in Syria. …
“One of the others charged in the case in the third example—Abdurahman Yasin Daud—is a native Somalian who wound up in Minnesota, thanks to the U.S. government. But not only was he allowed into the country, according to the Tribune wire service piece in the Chicago Tribune, he was granted “permanent resident” status by the U.S. government. …
“While the January 16 press release from the Department of Justice was headlined “Two Virginia Men Charged with Terrorism Offenses Related to Attempted Travel to Syria to Join ISIL,” it turns out one of these “Virginia men” was actually an immigrant from the great nation of Sudan.
“Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan—whom the DOJ admits ‘is a legal permanent U.S. resident originally from Sudan,’ but was living in Woodbridge, Virginia—was ‘charged with aiding and abetting [his friend Joseph Hassan] Farrokh’s attempt to provide material support and resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.’ Farrokh was born in Pennsylvania. …
“Bilal Abood, a 38-year-old Iraqi man who lives in Mesquite, Texas, was sentenced to 48 months in prison on May 25 for lying to the Feds about terrorism.
“In this case, the Justice Department notes right up front that he was born in Iraq—but is now a U.S. citizen. Abood had traveled to Syria from Texas—and then back—and had pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr Al-Badhdadi, the leader of the Islamic State.”
Breitbart also reports of Azizjon Rahkmatove, from Uzbekistan; Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, also from Uzbekistan; Akhror Saidakhmetov from Kazakhstan; and Abror Habibov, from Uzbekistan – men all tied to terror who were able to enter the America’s borders due solely to failures of U.S. government immigration policy.
