Writing at the Center for Immigration Studies, author and expert on how terrorists seek to exploit our weak borders, Todd Bensman, reports on a stunning admission by U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee last week. In 2019, Trump was right when he said terrorists are attempting to come across our borders.
If the invading armies of teenaged males aren’t enough to damn Biden and Harris border policies, this should seal the deal.

Landmark Confirmation of Border Threat
DHS acknowledges that suspected Islamic terrorists are crossing the southern border
“U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas this week asserted that suspected Islamic terrorists can and have crossed the porous southern border for years, a claim that major media organizations and lawmakers widely pilloried as a fear-mongering falsehood when President Donald Trump and his administration made the same claim in 2019.
Mayorkas’ comments that migrant suspects on U.S. terrorism watch lists cross the border came amid the latest round of controversy about the terrorist infiltration claim, which began when a delegation of 13 Republican lawmakers, returning from the border, relayed that Border Patrol agents told them that three Yemeni migrants and a Serb on the U.S. terrorism watch list had been apprehended since October.
Major media such as ABC News and the Washington Post quickly published stories, largely featuring Democratic lawmakers and self-described border security experts lashing out at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other delegation members as lying and re-disseminating a disproven conspiracy theory.
“Weird as the Chairman of the subcommittee on Intelligence and Special Operations and a border state member of Congress haven’t heard anything about this,” tweeted Rep. Ruben Gallego, a Democrat who represents the Phoenix area. “Gonna ask for a briefing. Pretty sure he is either wrong or lying.”
“The notion that the Southwest border is open to terrorists is ludicrous,” Alex Nowrasteh,*** the director of immigration studies at the Cato Institute, told ABC News, for instance.
“The government has shown no evidence that terrorists use the Southwest border to get into the United States.”
But all such talk disappeared mid-stride after a routine weekly U.S. House Homeland Security Committee hearing Tuesday March 16. During it, the Democratic DHS appointee Mayorkas acknowledged that suspected terrorist migrants routinely travel to the southern border. The remarks were stunning in that they came from the Democrat side of the aisle, rather than the usual Republican side.
“A known or suspected terrorist — KST is the acronym that we use — individuals who match that profile, have tried to cross the border, the land border, have tried to travel by air into the United States, not only this year but last year, the year prior and so on and so forth,” Mayorkas testified.
Mayorkas then issued another remarkable revelation. He disclosed that the American homeland security establishment has fielded a “multi-layered security apparatus” that has been in place at least since the 9/11 attacks to catch and neutralize the heightened threat of this category of land border-crossing migrants from countries of terrorism concern.”

*** Libertarian ‘think tanks,’ like the CATO Institute, are openly open borders.
In 2015, Nowrasteh argued in an op-ed at The Hill for the US resettlement of Syrian refugees. It is all about the free flow of (cheap) labor that the Koch Brothers and other globalists promote.
I found this 2019 interview with the clever and cagey Jesse Lee Peterson very amusing. Hope you do to. The discussion about the southern border begins at about the 27 minute mark.
Peterson says illegal aliens are “destroying black communities” while Nowrasteh says race relations between “new Americans” and blacks are going well. (I think POC stands for People of Color. Is that right?)

When we have another massive terrorist attack, the news will find a way to blame DJT.
What is really sad is how much our own democratic congressmen and women lie outright. Stay safe everyone! Thank you Ann for your constant vigilance.
Thanks, but honestly I don’t do much. Getting lazy in my dotage! And, I guess we had a terrorist attack in Colorado.
It must be Trump’s fault. He kept the Syrians out.
And what’s more, the American taxpayer is additionally aiding the jihadists by giving each one a $1400 covid check once they’ve crossed the border. Hey, they need some walkin’ around money, right?
This is a interesting tidbit related to immigration. Especially the part ‘lived most of his life in US’
Syrian-born gunman Ahmad Alissa, 21, bought $900 Ruger assault rifle a week before killing ten at Colorado grocery store and asked police if he could speak to his mother when he surrendered
Shooter at the Boulder Colorado mall now identified. Note they initially didn’t give a name and described him as a white male?

Boulder gunman Ahmad Alissa, 21, is charged with ten counts of murder at grocery store where victims were getting vaccine shots: Cops reveal shooter ‘lived most of his life in US’ and was shot through leg in massacre
The gunman responsible for a mass shooting at a Colorado grocery store on Monday has been identified as 21-year-old Ahmad Alissa.
Alissa, who has lived most of his life in the US, is now in custody and has been charged with 10 counts of murder.
At 2.40pm, he opened fire on King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, killing ten people. He was taken into at 3.28pm and was transported to the hospital to be treated for a leg wound.
Alissa is now in a stable condition and has been charged but his motive remains unknown.
In Facebook posts over the last 18 months, he complained about not having a girlfriend and ranted about President Trump.
His brother confirmed he was the shooter in an interview with The Daily Beast on Monday, saying he was ‘paranoid’ and ‘very antisocial’. The brother said he believes his brother is mentally ill, and described how he was convinced people were ‘after him’ in high school.
(The name appears to be Iranian in origin.)
Aren’t Omar & Hakim muslim names? And they ignore what the Daily Beast reporting and make this about getting rid of our 2nd Amendment Right.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnoJPl_Cqj8
We need to find out if he was the child of a refugee.
