We have cleared a small corner of the digital forest to bring you reports about drug and gang activity seeping into the US from Mexico. Human beings are trafficked as sex slaves. Criminal enterprises are run out of sanctuary cities and states as close to home as Lawrence Massachusetts.
Mr. Trump has done yeoman’s work trying to keep his campaign promise to plug the holes in our border security. But the Left, the press, and the courts continue to fight him at every turn. Neither the threat of gang violence against our citizens nor the drug deaths from the opioids they peddle are enough of an incentive to stand with the majority of Americans. So, is it safe to assume they don’t care about terrorism threats either?
Years after a Judicial Watch investigation uncovered that Islamic terrorists are entering the United States through the Mexican border federal authorities have arrested a Jordanian man for smuggling six citizens of Yemen—an Al Qaeda hotbed—into the U.S. through Mexico. The smuggler, 31-year-old Moayad Heider Mohammad Aldairi, conspired with others to sneak the six Yemeni nationals across the Texas border for a fee, according to a statement issued this week by the Department of Justice (DOJ).
A few weeks ago Democrat Socialists of America got gobs of earned media when its activist began doing two things. Harassing executive brand personnel in public and haranguing Immigration enforcement staff. Other groups with similar interests and efforts include Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and another group of socialists who spend far-left money under the title ‘The Women’s March.’
Aligned with other open borders activists their goal is to advance the Democrat Party no border agenda.
If that means a few jihadi-terrorists slip in alongside the narco-terrorists, so be it.
This is hardly an isolated case. Foreigners from nations with terrorist ties have been slipping into the U.S. via Mexico for years and Judicial Watch has exposed several plots as part of an ongoing investigation into the critical national security threats that grip the region. In one operation exposed by Judicial Watch, Mexican drug cartels smuggled nationals of terrorist countries into a small Texas rural town near El Paso Texas. To elude the Border Patrol, they used remote farm roads to reach stash areas in Acala, a rural crossroads located around 54 miles from El Paso. Judicial Watch also uncovered State Department records confirming that “Arab extremists” are entering the U.S. through Mexico with the assistance of smuggling network “cells.”
It is illegal to enter any country without its permission. You must announce yourself at a port of entry. Permit yourself to be identified, vetted, and in some cases physically searched. After which the sovereign state has the right to deny you access.
American Democrats and their activist allies have politicized the practice but not as a global issue. They are not demanding that every nation on the planet open its borders to unvetted entry. To unlimited access without consequence. They demand it only of America regardless of the risks it poses to our nation, our families, or our children.
Why do the interests of foreign nations, including terror states, take precedence over the safety and security – the very fabric of liberty and stability – of this nation?
