Get ready for denials if terror strikes
from across the border

Walter Williams -- Washington Examiner -- August 11, 2014   
American Border Patrol smuggled a "WMD" across the border - ten years ago.
    ....Securing our border is not only an immigration issue but, more importantly, a national security issue. International terrorists know that our southern border is insecure. They can simply fly to a Latin American country and then sneak across the border with deadly germ or chemical warfare weapons and dirty bombs, which could be planted anywhere.
    According to Breitbart, "a leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries." It reports that 28 "individuals from Pakistan were caught attempting to sneak into the U.S. this year alone, with another 211 individuals either turning themselves in or being caught at official ports of entry." Texas Gov. Rick Perry says that the number of apprehended illegal aliens who come from countries with "substantial terrorist ties" is at a record high, countries such as Yemen, Somalia and Saudi Arabia. On top of this, individuals from nations currently suffering from the world's largest Ebola outbreak have been caught attempting to sneak into the U.S.
    Deroy Murdock's article titled "The Southern Border: Our Welcome Mat for Terrorists," for National Review Online (April 25, 2013), reports that "Somalia's Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane told authorities in 2011 that he earned up to $75,000 per day smuggling East Africans into America. His clients included three al-Shabaab terrorists. "

ABP COMMENT: Ever since Bill Clinton appointed Doris Meissner to head the INS, there has been a campaign to recruit people to run the INS, and later the DHS, who had a globalist outlook. An anti-border, anti-fence philosophy runs deep in the very organization assigned to protect us. We will achieve border security only after a sweeping purge of the Department of Homeland Security. In the meantime, the individual states will have to do what they can. They will need the help of Congress - over the veto of Obama.
