Leftists, in their bid to try and take over every aspect of our lives under the mistaken belief that the right set of “elites” in power, along with the right set of laws, can create a utopian society and perfect humanity, have been employing a vast number of strategies to help achieve their goals. One such strategy involves screwing around with the demographics in our country by essentially adopting an open border policy that has allowed millions of illegal immigrants to gain access to the interior of the nation.
What is not being taken into consideration — or maybe this is being considered, but liberals simply don’t care — is the fact that terrorists from anti-American organizations could be using the crisis along the southern border to get into the United States. From there they can create sleeper cells, carry out terrorist attacks, and conduct other operations designed to drag our country into their twisted jihad.
Adding to the alarm, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas could not provide the actual number of illegal migrants who have entered the United States that have connections to terrorist groups operating out of the Middle East while giving testimony during a hearing before the Senate on Tuesday, according to the Daily Caller.
“Republican Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall asked Mayorkas about the issue during a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing. Federal authorities recently warned Border Patrol that Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad could be crossing the southern border amid the war between Israel and Hamas, according to an internal memo exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation,” the report said.
“Approximately how many illegal aliens in this country or here on asylum have direct ties to Hamas, to Hezbollah, to the Islamic Jihad or the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran?” Marshall asked Mayorkas during the hearing.
“Senator Marshall, let me assure you that individuals that pose a risk to our national security are our highest enforcement priority, the safety and security of the American public,” Mayorkas initially replied to the question.
Marshall once again pressed Mayorkas to provide the Senate with an exact number. And, once again, Mayorkas assured everyone in attendance that his agency is making enforcement of the law concerning individuals attempting to cross the border who have terrorist ties a top priority. Notice how he is refusing to give an actual answer to the question he’s being asked?
Marshall then asked the DHS secretary if he has an answer to his question. Mayorkas responded by stating he believed he did answer the question. How he arrived at that conclusion is puzzling. The question asked for a number. He never gave a number. How, then, was the question answered?
“Senator, if an individual is identified as having a nexus to one of those organizations, we would consider them a risk to our national security and take appropriate enforcement action, to include for example, detention and removal,” Mayorkas stated.
“The number of illegal immigrants whose names appeared on the terror watchlist apprehended by Border Patrol at both the northern and southern borders of the U.S. has skyrocketed in recent years. Border Patrol recorded 172 individuals whose names appeared on the watchlist, compared to 98 in fiscal year 2022 and 16 in fiscal year 2021, according to federal data,” the Daily Caller reported.
The man never provided a number in his response to the question. Which means he knows the number and it’s very, very high, or he doesn’t know the answer and it’s still probably very, very high.
Time to stop playing games with national security. Build the wall, enforce the law. Simple as that.
