More than 30 Recent Immigrants Caught with Ties to Terrorism!

Over the summer Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) released a list of recent immigrants who had been arrested after being tied to terrorist plots. At the time the list was about 20 people long, but over the last few months Senator Sessions has continued to update it, and the list now stands at more than 30!

In the aftermath of the Muslim terrorist attack in Chattanooga over the summer, Senator Sessions released a statement condemning the act and then spoke to a much wider problem. In his statement he mentioned some statistics from a recent study:

A 2005 Center for Immigration Studies highlighted 21 terrorists who immigrated to the United States and later applied for citizenship—20 of those citizenship applications were approved. Since just 2013, news reports have revealed a number of such individuals who were invited into the United States as part of our annual admission of one million new permanent residents, half a million foreign students, 70,000 asylees and refugees, 700,000 foreign workers, and 200,000 relatives of foreign workers. These individuals below did not hop a border fence or a dig a tunnel: they, like the 9/11 hijackers, applied for entry and were approved:

 

While we may not want to simply block all Muslim migration to our nation, we must be wiser about how we go about dealing with the growing influx of Muslim migration.

“Congress must cancel the President’s blank refugee check and put Congress back in charge of the program. We cannot allow the President to unilaterally decide how many refugees he wishes to admit, nor continue to force taxpayers to pick up the tab for the tens of billions of unpaid-for welfare and entitlement costs.”
