From Mad World: In the wake of the recent terror attacks in both Paris and California, officials now seem to be taking a closer look at who we’re letting in our country on President Obama’s invitation. As it turns out, they aren’t all innocent people looking for reprieve from the Islamic State (ISIS/Daesh), and that’s become even more obvious after what’s just been found on some of these Syrian refugees that suggests a bigger issue than we previously knew.
The FBI has come out with a warning that they announced to lawmakers on Wednesday, which hopefully didn’t fall on deaf ears. Unfortunately, what they found already proves a threat that’s infiltrated the country, and now there’s no turning back. All we can do from here is stop the flow of more Syrian refugees, but it doesn’t look like that will happen anytime too soon, if Obama’s plan for 10,000 total comes to full fruition before 2016. However, the issue even goes further than that.
Authorities have announced that they have credible reason to believe that the Islamic State has a new weapon at their disposal of a different kind. FBI Director James Comey revealed to lawmakers this week that a reliable confidante has informed security officials that the terror group has a passport making machine, which has been in operation for some time in Raqqa, Syria, where ISIS runs much of their terrorist operations. There, they are printing “legitimate-looking Syrian passports” that have been used by terrorist group followers to enter Europe and the U.S., and a recent discovery may validate this claim.
According to the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Intelligence Report, “boxes of blank passports” as well as a passport printing machine was found in the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zour last summer, which was taken over by ISIS, just as Raqqa was, where another passport office was found, ABC News reported.
“Since more than 17 months have passed since Raqqa and Deir ez-Zour fell to ISIS, it is possible that individuals from Syria with passports ‘issued’ in these ISIS controlled cities or who had passport blanks, may have traveled to the U.S.,” HSI’s report issued to law enforcement stated.
With fake passports and machines to make them at will for every new and entering jihadist, as well as America willing to accept any Syrian who has a pass, there is no telling how many terrorists have and will enter our borders based on pseudo legitimate methods. The fraudulent passports have already been found on some of our “refugee friends,” most notably the suicide bombers responsible for killing hundreds in Paris. Itwas reported that these terrorist with the fake printed passports came into Europe with a herd of Syrian refugees, forcing their way into the country on the premise that the host was doing a good deed for those in need.
The informant who reported the passport manufacturing to the FBI added another chilling tidbit. “The source further stated that fake Syrian passports are so prevalent in Syria that Syrians do not even view possessing them as illegal,” the report says. “The source stated fake Syrian passports can be obtained in Syria for $200 to $400 and that backdated passport stamps to be placed in the passport cost the same.”
The glaring issue is that with the ability to create a “get into America free pass” at their disposal, terrorist operations can and will expand exponentially outside the areas in the Middle East, which they already control. Unless this gets under wraps with an urgency, by shutting down all entry for Syrian refugees, America can and will become the group’s next stronghold. Looks like Donald Trump was onto something when he suggested pause on Muslim immigration.
