ISIS and an Open Border: A Perfect Storm

ISIS Flag In Iraq

If gang members can easily cross into the U.S., would it be any more difficult for members of the Death-to-America crowd to also traipse across? The LA Times reports more than 35,000 illegal immigrants arriving in the U.S. each month. If only one out of a hundred of these new arrivals are members if ISIS, Al Qaeda, or another similarly predisposed group, that’s 350 very bad guys each month ready to set up shop here and bring Death-to-America to city near you.

Not to mention recruiting disaffected U.S. residents to join their cause. A former Gitmo detainee was recently arrested in Spain, caught recruiting for ISIS. How hard would it be to hold a similar membership drive in Mexico or Central America, with the new jihadists joining the flood of 35,000immigrants per month across our border?

This is hardly a new idea. In 2006, a congressional report described 1.2 million illegal aliens apprehended in 2005, 165,000 from countries other than Mexico, and 650 from “special interest countries.” By 2010, the problem was no better. Senator John Cornyn noted 663 individuals arrested crossing the southern border that year from countries known to have ties with terrorism. These include Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Iran, and Syria.

How many were not arrested? That’s unanswerable. But with 35,000 crossing each month, you can bet it’s a significant number. Once safely in the U.S., how hard is it then to bring jihad to America? A shooter in a crowded mall. A homemade bomb at a subway station. Sabotage of power station or reservoir.

  1. Those that live by the sword(insert weapon here) are likely to die by the sword.
    I think we all make big mistakes in our lives from time to time. I think the people that succeed in life admit those mistakes and move on. I personally have failed more times than succeeded in life. The times that I did not fail, produced a very good lifestyle for me and my own.
    This immigration thing is opening up a bag of worms that no one wants. It is a huge mistake.
    That huge mistake if it leads to people dying by the wrong people coming across our borders will lead to the impeachment of the President of this Country. It is the executive branch that is in charge of enforcement of our laws. When they no longer do this, then there is a big problem brewing.
    No member of his party in their right mind will support a President(even if he is of that party) if that person’s actions lead to the deaths of many citizens of this country. Especially if they are up for re-election in the fall.
    This is actually a friendly warning of what might happen to said President unless this entire immigration thing is resolved in an organized manner that filters the gutter crowd out of the process.
    Gutter crowd refers to all various criminals knowingly allowed to cross our borders. If that includes terrorists, then the Executive Branch WILL be held accountable by the Congress.
    With all that said, perhaps a different path will allow our President to retreat from an unwise move with honor. That will take real leadership. Lies will not get you out of this situation, Mr. President.
