The National Association of Chiefs of Police is receiving a disturbing number of email – mostly from anonymous writers – claiming that immigrants from nations that are hotbeds of radical Islamic terrorism continue their attempts at entering the U.S. via Mexico at record rates.
According to the reliable and accurate government figures from the legal watchdog group Judicial Watch, more than 10,000 illegal aliens from countries that provide safe haven and support of terrorist groups currently live in the United States.
How they actually entered this country is still being investigate, but federal law enforcement agencies and some Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California police and sheriffs’ departments know about them because these Islamist suspects have either been deported or have final removal orders pending. Nevertheless, these suspects aren’t in custody and roam freely in unsuspecting communities throughout America, according to the legal team at Judicial Watch.
The distressing statistics were obtained from the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by a public interest group who favors border security (i.e. walls, fences, barriers) and also exposes the harms of mass illegal or unregulated immigration. The Washington D.C. nonprofit, nonpartisan Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and made the figures public this month.
The figures revealed that 10,340 illegal immigrants from Iran, Syria, Sudan and North Korea are on ICE’s national docket as of June 2018 are not in custody and allowed to roam the country without supervision of surveillance.
Iran holds the top spot on the ICE list with 6,331. Meanwhile, 2,128 Syrians, and Sudan and North Korea complete the list. All of those countries are classified as sponsors of terrorism by the State Department and the Treasury Department.
“The U.S. government has determined that Iran is the foremost state sponsor of terrorism because it provides a range of support, including financial, training and equipment, to groups worldwide, particularly Hezbollah. Syria is also a hotbed of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Al Qaeda-linked jihadists,” said a Judicial Watch statement.
A recent RAND Corporation study concluded that:
- The most significant threat to the United States comes from terrorist groups operating in a handful of Middle Eastern countries that include Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
- Tactics for these groups include the use of suicide bombers, kidnapping, use of small and heavy arms, and improvised explosive devices in major city centers, including Damascus, Aleppo, Hamah, Dara, Homs, Idlib, and Dayr al-Zawr.
- During the Syrian refugee crisis, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) admitted that dozens of Syrian nationals suspected of having terrorist ties slipped into the U.S. The agency tried to downplay the travesty, claiming that federal agents missed “possible derogatory information” about the immigrants due to “a lapse in vetting. Among those who slipped through the cracks is a man who failed a polygraph test after applying to work at a U.S. military installation and another who communicated with an Islamic State leader.
“Regardless, President Obama let thousands of Syrians settle in the U.S. even as his own intelligence and immigration officials warned that individuals with ties to terrorist groups used the program to infiltrate the country and that there was no way to properly screen refugees,” according to Judicial Watch’s press statement.
Along the southwest border region Border Patrol agents or local cops often encounter suspects from terrorist nations and DHS considers them one of the most dangerous threats to the United States.
Special Interest Aliens (SIA)
An investigation completed by Congress earlier this year found that tens of thousands of SIAs—from the Middle East, Asia and Africa—entered Panama and Colombia in the past few years. Nearly all the SIA migrants were headed to the United States and most came from Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Bangladesh and India.
The famously porous Mexican border is an easy pathway into the U.S. for many SIAs. In Laredo, Texas alone authorities report an astounding 300% increase in immigrants from Bangladesh, a south Asian Islamic country well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).
SPECIAL REPORT REGARDING PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA’S ANTI-AMERICAN ACTION
Under President Barack Obama, there was a password that is the modern equivalent of Open Sesame. It was called: Asylum. We may soon witness these imported inmates running the asylum, formerly known as The United States of America. This article from 2015 includes video footage of an ambush interview of a Homeland Security bus driver transporting suspected terrorists and international crime figures.
