President Barack Obama and liberals have assured us that the radicals are “contained” and that refugees brought into this country from the Middle East pose no danger, but recent discoveries have, once again, proven those claims to be completely untrue.
It was previously believed that approximately 72 people in the United States had been involved in terrorist plots against the country since 2014, but the Washington Free Beacon recently uncovered information that showed an additional 41 terrorists have been implicated since that time. This brings the total number to 113, according to information provided by Congressional sources.
You would think that our president would want as much information as possible about these alleged terrorists, but the Obama administration has consistently stonewalled congressional efforts to obtain more detailed immigration histories of these individuals.
Some have now begun accusing the administration of purposefully covering up this information to avoid exposing flaws in the U.S. screening process.
Because it’s more important for us to look safe than to actually be safe… right?
One of the accused, Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, was a 24-year-old Iraqi refugee who had been granted legal permanent residence in Houston in 2011, though it was later determined that he “swore untruthfully on his formal application when applying to become a naturalized U.S. citizen,” according to the Justice Department.
Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, also a refugee, allegedly “traveled overseas to fight alongside terrorist organizations and lied to U.S. authorities about his activities,” according to the Justice Department.
“The terrorism-related arrests of two more Iraqi refugees on American soil proves once again our screening process is weak and needs to be updated,” Sen. Mark Kirk said in a Jan. 8 statement.
These were not isolated incidents, as officials continue to discover cases in which individuals accused of terrorism entered the country legally.
“Preventing and responding to these acts is an effort encompassing thousands of federal agents and attorneys and billions of dollars: In effect, we are voluntarily admitting individuals at risk for terrorism and then, on the back end, trying to stop them from carrying out their violent designs,” Sen. Jeff Sessions warned.
Sessions and other conservatives are right. We must prevent these terrorists from entering our country in the first place. The saddest part is that they aren’t streaming across the border illegally; instead, President Barack Obama is inviting them and welcoming them with open arms.
