The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) estimates that increased U.S./Mexican border enforcement efforts have only been successful at apprehending 1 out of every 10 people entering the United States illegally. Since September 11, 2001, according to DHS, the U.S. southern border has seen an alarming increase, every year, in the numbers of illegal border crossings by “Other than Mexican” people or OTM’s claiming citizenship from countries the U.S. State Department classifies as “state sponsors of terrorism.”
Contrary to President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security’s opportunistic use of the term immigrant, no one in living or working in the United States can be categorized, under our laws, as having the legal status, until they voluntarily register with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Every foreign citizen who enters the United States without registering or legal permission is an “illegal alien,” not a “undocumented immigrant.” Today, in the United States, government estimates suggest that ten percent of the illegal alien population living in the U.S. is comprised of individuals born in countries that are confirmed financiers of Islamist terrorisms efforts to attack the U.S. and its allies.
Since Obama took office in 2008, illegal immigration statistics are mysteriously hard to come by; however, looking back to 2005 gives us a confirmed base line for OTM illegal border crossings. In 2005, the DHS claimed that it apprehended some 45,000 OTM’s entering the country through Mexico. Last year, U.S Officials—speaking anonymously to various news agencies—have stated that the U.S. may have seen as much as an 88% increase in the number of these OTM’s crossing our southern border since 2005. Given the current estimated DHS rate of OTM apprehensions, I mentioned earlier, of 1 in 10, that means that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of OTM’s have made it to America and are roaming our streets and communities.
For those doubting my assertions, consider that in 2011, a DHS oversight committee found that the U.S. government has no accurate idea of how many Islamist loyal OTM’s have been allowed to enter the U.S. since 2008. Yes, I meant allowed.
During 2011 oversight hearings, our immigration authorities admitted they have regularly detained and released into the U.S. some 70% of OTM’s without ever confirming their identities. The rationalizations for this practice offered by the Obama Administration are alarming. According to reports, the main reason for the U.S releasing these potential terrorists onto U.S streets is the refusal of OTM’s country of origin, to accept these “undocumented immigrants” deportation back into their homeland. Moreover, even though OTM’s are coming from the Mexican side of the border, Mexican authorities will not accept responsibility for letting them cross to America. Therefore, the Obama DHS gives them a ticket and a court date and sends them on their way into American communities.
In summary, of the potential terrorists illegally crossing our U.S./Mexican border annually, the DHS and its border protection policies only catch 1 in 10 of these individuals, never confirm their true identities and release 70% of them into America society. Unless I have been living in a complete state of ignorance, was not the Department of Homeland Security and post 911 restructuring of our Immigration/Intelligence communities’ purpose, to combat and control the threat of terrorists entering the United States?
Current Obama administration proposals for so-called immigration reform all include amnesty for OTM’s, not just the so-called law abiding poor Mexican immigrant; a convenient truth, for some reason, carefully omitted from our nation’s immigration debate. Aside from the obvious national security threat posed by the legalization of OTM’s from countries known to support terrorism, I want to know why we the taxpayers have been paying for a DHS that is not doing its job. How can Obama cabinet appointee and Director of Homeland Security, Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano claim our borders are secure when her own personnel are admitting the borders and DHS policy enable the free and sanctioned flow of dangerous OTM illegals across our borders?
The United States government should not be entertaining any hearings on immigration reform until our borders are secure and DHS has gathered up the OTM’s currently living, and more than likely, waiting patiently to launch terror attacks inside our borders. Any Senator or Congressmen that supports so-called immigration reform, in any configuration, are plainly and simply acting, in direct contradiction to their sworn oath to protect America.
Once again, Obama is playing politics with our nation’s safety and our citizen’s lives. Before you let liberals chastise you into supporting immigration reform ask yourself if you want 14-year-old Muslim martyrs going to school with you kids. If our government passes immigration reform law, it will not be long before that ugly thought becomes a reality. If Americans thought Newtown was horrendous, wait until you see what is coming if immigration reform passes.
