In the musical, West Side Story, one of the many melodies was, “They’re Coming to America.” However, those immigrants from Puerto Rico were understood to be arriving legally. Now we have illegal aliens infiltrating our 1,989-mile-long southern border, but many coming to the sound of a very different and horribly discordant tune; one tinged with Islamic and/or Arabic overtones.
According to recently released data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 5,063 individuals from nations that harbor Islamic terrorists were arrested last year alone trying to cross into America from Mexico. None of these were Mexicans, Guatemalans, or Hondurans; they were citizens from far-away nations consumed by militant Islam.
Afghanistan, where U.S. troops battle the Taliban, is the home of 70 people arrested at the southern frontier in 2013 alone.
Syria, birthplace of ISIS and a civil war ravaged nation with over 200,000 dead saw 72 of its countrymen captured at our border.
Sudan, designated by the State Department as an official “state sponsor of terrorism,” where Christians in the south have been the subject of massive genocide by the Arab Muslim north, was the starting point for 168 individuals who were stopped en-route to the U.S.A.
Iran, the ultimate Islamic state sponsor of terrorism, is busy trying to build an atomic bomb. A total of 257 Iranians got caught on our border.
Nigeria — headquarters of al-Qaeda offshoot Boko-Haram, which practices child-sex slavery and anti-Christian genocide — is the nation from which 492 people departed before getting snagged on the way into America.
But these are only the culprits that were caught. Those that have escaped capture and successfully infiltrated the U.S. may now well run into the thousands and constitute numerous sleeper cells waiting to unleash atrocities in our towns and cities in the name of Allah.
The U.S. Transportation Safety Administration recognizes the following nations as either state sponsors of terrorism or as counties of interest. They include Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and Yemen. This information is available in Table 34 of the 2013 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics. Every one of these states are Muslim with the exception of Nigeria which remains torn in bloody conflict between the Muslim north and the mostly Christian south.
It can be assumed that most of the illegal aliens infiltrating our southern border from the suspect countries are not necessarily terrorists but we know from bitter experience how much horror can be inflicted upon America by just a handful. September 11 vividly illustrated the mass carnage that 19 such evildoers could perpetrate.
Deroy Murdock, a Fox News contributor and media fellow with the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University, recently suggested: “Given the destruction and bloodshed that 19 Islamic extremists from Saudi Arabia (or even one) can perpetrate, the idea that such potential killers could illegally gain access to the American homeland is truly chilling.”
As far back as last July, 2014, Congressman Ted Poe (R-TX) told CBS’s local Dallas Fort Worth affiliate he believes that ISIS will use Texas’s southern border to enter the United States:
“Of course the way they would come to the United States would be through the porous border with Mexico. The drug cartels will bring people into the country no matter who they are — for money,” says Poe … It is well known that drug cartels are assisting Islamic terrorists in gaining entrance and crossing the border. In fact it’s been going on for some time.”
At this time of writing, President Obama’s sweeping plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens has been enacted by executive order, bypassing Congress and considered by many to be an illegal act.
As Obama chillingly said on attaining the presidency, “elections have consequences.”
Fox News had earlier reported that Obama was pushing forward his 10-part plan which includes a deportation reprieve, known as “deferred action,” for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, as well as for the parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents. Those provisions give some 5 million illegal immigrants who are already in the U.S. the right to stay and work, according to Fox News.
So-called ‘progressives’ love the move by Obama, seeing it as bringing in people who will vote Democrat and perhaps destroy any chance of Republicans ever again gaining a majority in Congress, let alone seeing another conservative Republican President in office.
Millions of American citizens, not only conservatives, believe that this move will effectively destroy America, fatally compromise the Constitution, and bring into the country not skilled legal immigrants but illiterate Third world masses who will effectively take jobs from American citizens and union workers as well as cripple what is left of our health service.
Barack Hussein Obama is continuing his juggernaut drive to fundamentally transform the United States into something like the socialist European model or even down to the level of a Third-World country.
Never has an American president been more contemptuous of the United States or acted in a manner that has revealed itself to be a clear and present danger to America’s very survival.
