While much of the border debate revolves around questions regarding Mexican immigrants, another, perhaps, greater threat exists to our south. Dozens of illegal migrants from terrorist nations entered the United States through Mexico late last year and are being held in a Texas Immigration and Customs Enforcement processing center.
The 54 detainees are nationals of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and they are seeking asylum in the U.S. Eleven of the detainees were released over the weekend.
A U.S. border agent recently confirmed that four more migrants from a terrorist nation crossed over the Mexican border into Southern California just in the last few days.
“I can confirm we got those four from Pakistan, and they went up to the Adelanto Detention Center in Victorville, California. I imagine they’re still there,” the agent told WND. “I’m sure they’re going to claim asylum.
Just last month the U.S. issued a terrorism alert warning that Islamic militants in Bangladesh may be targeting Westerners.
“The U.S. government continues to receive information that terrorist groups in South Asia may also be planning attacks in the region, possibly against U.S. government facilities, U.S. citizens, or U.S. interests,” the bulletin states. “Terrorists have demonstrated their willingness and ability to attack locations where U.S. citizens or Westerners are known to congregate or visit.”
Unlike the liberal perspective, that a closed border is some kind of racist action, an unsecured border jeopardizes the lives of all the people within this country. This is not a matter of anyone disliking Mexican immigration, but we are seeing how a porous border is an open door for the people who want to hurt us the most.
