While the headlines are about three from New York arrested for plotting to join ISIS, that is only the symptom. The correct problem statement and headline is that U.S. immigration is failing to filter out dangerous and worthless people from entering our nation.
Let’s be as clear as possible about U.S. immigration policy, laws, and enforcement. Ask yourself, how did the Boston terrorists arrive in the U.S.? How did the three prospective terrorists arrested in New York today arrive in the U.S.?
U.S. immigration law is presently an outdated joke. Until 1952, rather late in the nation’s history, immigration law was a hodgepodge. Then, the hodgepodge was put under one roof called the Immigration Naturalization Service (INS).
What is the U.S. policy about managing new entrants into the nation? It should not be the same policy that it was when the nation was recruiting new citizens in 1776. Today, we must manage the population size and quality to ensure economic sustainability. You can’t have people coming into the county based on winning a lottery for heaven’s sake. We do that now and citizens should be exclaiming ridiculousness.
We pay for a Department of Homeland Security to protect us, and yet, in that same department they are processing the arrival of prospective terrorists.
Illegal Mexicans who arrive to perform farm work that Americans don’t want to do are not the priority problem. Immigration of persons with a terrorist profile is the problem, and so is the President of the USA who refuses to tell the difference.
“3 arrested in New York City for allegedly conspiring to support ISIS
By Edmund DeMarche Published February 25, 2015FoxNews.com
Three New York City residents — two with Uzbekistan citizenship, and one a citizen of Kazakhstan — plotted to travel to Syria to join ISIS militants and ‘wage jihad,’ the Justice Department announced on Wednesday.
One of the defendants also offered to kill the president of the United States if ordered to do so, the criminal complaint alleged.
The men were identified in the complaint as Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, 24, a resident of Brooklyn and a citizen of Uzbekistan; Akhror Saidakhmetov, 19, a resident of Brooklyn and a citizen of Kazakhstan; and Abror Habibov, 30, a resident of Brooklyn and a citizen of Uzbekistan.
Federal prosecutors say two of the men came to the attention of law enforcement last summer after they expressed online support for the groups. Hilofatnews.com was an Uzbek-language website that called for readers to join the terror group, the complaint said. Authorities were able to link Juraboev to the post, the complaint said.”
