Are any of these guys Islamic terrorists?
Just a couple of days after we see the Disgrace-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, over at the 24/7 televised nuthouse, being applauded by an audience of lawbreakers and their enablers for warning ICE agents that “there will be consequences” if they dare to do their jobs and enforce the immigration laws, we learn that Texas has been apprehending members of known Islamic lunatic groups crossing what we laughingly call our Southern border.[amazon template=iframe image&asin=B006M9JCOS]
From the Washington Post:
A top Texas law enforcement agency says border security organizations have apprehended several members of known Islamist terrorist organizations crossing the southern border in recent years, and while a surge of officers to the border has slowed the flow of drugs and undocumented immigrants, it’s costing the state tens of millions of dollars.
In a report to Texas elected officials, the state Department of Public Safety says border security agencies have arrested several Somali immigrants crossing the southern border who are known members of al-Shabab, the terrorist group that launched a deadly attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, and Al-Itihaad al-Islamiya, another Somalia-based group once funded by Osama bin Laden. Another undocumented immigrant arrested crossing the border was on multiple U.S. terrorism watch lists, the report says.
According to the report, one member of al-Shabab, apprehended in June 2014, told authorities he had been trained for an April 2014 suicide attack in Mogadishu.(emphasis mine) He said he escaped and reported the planned attack to African Union troops, who were able to stop the attack. The FBI believed another undocumented immigrant was an al-Shabab member who helped smuggle several potentially dangerous terrorists into the U.S.
“[A]nother undocumented immigrant? Wait, aren’t they Americans in waiting now?
On last Sunday’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, “Truth is the New Hate Speech,” I told you about the State Department’s secret resettling of thousands of Somali refugees in Minnesota, no doubt chosen because of its generous welfare benefits. Observant readers may have noticed that the WaPo story quoted above specifically mentions Somali immigrants who are members of al Shabab entering the country. Coincidence?
