Smuggling network guided illegals from Middle East terror hotbeds to U.S. border

by Stephen Dinan  |  published on June 3, 2016

A smuggling network has managed to sneak illegal immigrants from Middle Eastern terrorism hotbeds straight to the doorstep of the U.S., including helping one Afghan who authorities say was part of an attack plot in North America.

Immigration officials have identified at least a dozen Middle Eastern men smuggled into the Western Hemisphere by a Brazilian-based network that connected them with Mexicans who guided them to the U.S. border, according to internal government documents reviewed by The Washington Times.

Those smuggled included Palestinians, Pakistanis and the Afghan man who Homeland Security officials said had family ties to the Taliban and was “involved in a plot to conduct an attack in the U.S. and/or Canada.” He is in custody, but The Times is withholding his name at the request of law enforcement to protect investigations.

Some of the men handled by the smuggling network were nabbed before they reached the U.S., but others made it into the country. The Afghan man was part of a group of six from “special-interest countries.”

    Obama wants terrorism and violence in this country, to use as an excuse to destroy the Second Amendment. The Democrats in Chicago have long used the violence and chaos in that city to keep people from having legal weapons, and to maintain their grip over the city. If a Republican even tries to run, he runs into constant “random” violence. The police force is used to control the “normal” citizens, like Hitler used the SS. I know: I was born, educated, lived, and worked in Chicago!

    I have been working with the issue of illegal immigration and open borders since 2006 and have warned various members of the incompetent corrupt body known as Congress about this as we had Border Patrol agents in our forum who told us what was going on at our northern and southern borders (if you think the southern border is bad the northern border is even worse). We were ignored and in one instance were told we were full of it. Unfortunately we now are saying “We told you so” but tragically it may be too late as too many have been allowed unfettered access into the country especially since Obama stood down the Border Patrol, reimplemented “Catch and Release” at the southern border and turned the US into a sanctuary country by non-enforcement of our interior laws and cessation of 287g (Secure Communities Initiative). Obama and Congress care only about open borders, cheap labor and in their eyes the safety, security and well being of the American people be damned.

      it is pathetic……all we can do is hammer these useless politicians, refuse to donate to their worthless campaigns and try to educate the dummies and the distracted fools that vote for the bums.

    i HOPE THAT WE HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE TO OPEN SEASON ON THESE ILLEGALS. INVADE MEXICO, STOP THE CARTELS.

  • Tiger

    I listened to the Congressional investigations on the border, refugees and Iran deal. All this came out in the border hearing along with the fact that every law we have on the books including the “Alien Threat” has been thrown out the window by O.

    Trump is what we need.

      ABSOLUTELY………..however, I am petrified that the morons will elect that scummy billary………then we are LOST ~~~~~~~~~

    • rifftop

      That’s the plan…..but we also have to keep him on notice to follow through with deporting all of Obama’s migrant trash, close that border, unleash the border patrol, and remove the welfare magnet from illegals. No welfare, food stamps, housing, medical…….time to end the fraud and abuse by this renegade government.

      • Tiger

        Let us hope it happens.

    We have the laws, DHS does not believe the laws apply to what they want to do. If we don’t enforce the laws already on the books, let the Border Patrol do their jobs, then we a going to be flooded. And people wonder why gun sales are up. If the Government will not protect us then WE the People will have to do it.

    The U.S. government is mostly run by just five people: Barack Obama, Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid, Paul Ryan, and Nancy Pelosi.

    Last December, these five pushed through a horrible Omnibus spending bill to fund the government through next September that amounts to a betrayal of American voters, especially on immigration matters.

    Where do I begin to condemn this? I’ll start with GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan.

    It didn’t take long for Ryan to break all his promises on immigration, did it?

    When he was running for Speaker two months ago, Ryan promised he would not bring up immigration bills that did not have the backing of a majority of Republican House Members.

    Yet as soon as he got the chance, Ryan snuck several huge immigration giveaways into the Omnibus spending bill Congress approved.

    It goes further:

    »Nearly QUADRUPLES the number of H-2B low-skilled foreign workers allowed in this year. This could raise the total of these workers this year from 66,000 to 264,000.

    Not only that…

    »FUNDS a large increase in Syrian and other refugee resettlement in this country. Instead of a timeout and a full security review, Congress handed Obama everything he wants.

    »FUNDS Obama’s catch-and-release policy that virtually stops deportations.

    »FUNDS Sanctuary Cities, so that cities like San Francisco that refuse to turn over jailed illegal aliens to the feds will face no cut in funding.

    »MAINTAINS tax credits to illegal aliens in the form of the Earned Income Tax Credit. That is, if a family is poor enough, they not only pay no income tax, the government pays THEM. Yes, that includes illegal aliens! Also,

    Congress continues to allow illegal aliens to claim child tax credits on their tax returns.

    »FUNDS the continued relocation into America of the unaccompanied minors who are marching across the border into Texas and states. The numbers of these crossing the border is way up again this year.

    Even with all these outrages I’ve mentioned, there are still MORE terrible things hidden in the Omnibus bill, which passed both the House and the Senate. A hopeful sign is that 95 House Republicans joined with 18 House Democrats, and 26 Senate Republicans joined with 6 Senate Democrats to vote NO on this monstrosity.

    Yet, most Republicans and most all the Democrats voted yes, and it passed. Their complicity in this sell out is the real threat to the Constitution and Americans that want jobs and security.

  • CharlieSeattle

    Obama’s treasonous illegal alien and muslim RAPEfugee resettlement policies along with race baiting have created an ongoing SECOND 9/11 terrorist attack against all Americans!!

    I will even call it a Soros funded, MoveOn .com instigated, False Flag, US Government sanctioned “PURGE” against its own citizens and the police!

    Congress allowed this to happen with the recent passage of the Omnibu$ $pending Bill.

    …And Obama’s solution is to take away our guns with one hand and attack us with the other hand.

    Obama is a Liar and Traitor. Impeach this P0S now you skulking cowards!
    One small problem. ……There are more traitors in Congress than patriots!

          • Marilynn Reeves

            Not that I know of. We live in country 14 miles west of WF. Did hear WF had a mosque. There was a Muslim group out of Chicago that wanted to buy the Wagoner Ranch 40 miles W of us for 50 million but the owners said no and sold to another rancher for 45 million. Guess they wanted to live and enjoy the money.

          • plum82

            50 million? Those basturds must have A LOT of money….myself, I would NEVER sell to one of them…..I understand even if they’re nice, it’s not real AND their idea is to have a lot of children so they will out number Americans – then THEY will be in charge…I don’t doubt it…..Megan Kelly has one muslim on occasionally and he seems to be one of us BUT I bet there are very very few like him. I forget his name….I really feel sorry for my children & grandchildren & yours too…GOD help us if billary becomes president….makes me shudder to think of it….I dislike her so much that IF by some horrible chance she became president, I would never ever listen to her OR look at her…i’ll change channels……cannot stand the lying, thieving crook dirt bag POS……AND I thoroughly believe she was involved in the cover up of the murder of Vince Foster….she’s NO GOOD……

    • rifftop

      Be careful…….they are more protected than you. But we need to impede their “travel” though our land. Do not hire outfits that use illegals, start local boycotts of business that insist on hiring illegals rather than our own citizens. Do not assist, accommodate, educate or even hold the door for these criminals. You can tell who they are.

  • DrBillLemoine

    Some of the men handled by the smuggling network were nabbed before they reached the U.S., but others made it into the country.

    I’d like to know how anybody knows that ‘others made it into the country’ if they weren’t captured. It’s more fear mongering by right wing political propagandists. It’s more boilerplate designed to rile border extremists who want Trump’s mile high wall that won’t work. Walls never do. It’s sloganeering aimed at weak minded, in DC they are called know nothings, voters who gravitate toward conservative and Republican candidates. We’ve seen smuggling at the border for a very long time. Drugs, human trafficking are commonplace with myriad tunnels, end runs and direct border crossings both at and around border checkpoints. It’s not new, this smuggling, but in an election year we see the shrill mind bending claims like jihadists coming to America across the southern border. Actually terrorist actors have typically come from Canada. How do we explain that?

    • Marion E McKenzie

      NO IDIOT they were caught and turned Lose…

      • DrBillLemoine

        No smugglers, traffickers or jihadists are caught and released. Where did you ever get that notion?

        Not making any excuses for the Muslim turd who is systematically destroying America, but our border has been breeched by millions of illegals every year for decades. The difference now is the enormous threat of Islamic terrorists taking advantage of the easy passage.

          once people grasp the fact that Obama is a racist…..never mind his white grand parents and mother, then some possibility of reaction might happen. Obama hates whites, along with white history, the Declaration of Independence, Constitution created by whites. It’s why he defies all of it to show he is more powerful than the WHITE MANS LAWS. This POS has purposely defied laws, insulted customs, military, cultural norms, language to allow his minions of anarchists to push a path for 3rd world status, which also includes dictatorship, martial law and weapons confiscation.

        Don’t worry, be happy! There is a silver lining in this cloud of doom. You see, this P O S in the Rainbow House, who may or may not be a Muslim, and if he is a Muslim, then his days are definitely numbered, but the warriors of and for Islam won’t touch him until he is out of office. Why would they want to “touch” him, because he is pro gay, and pro abortion, these are extremely anti-Islamic, and a slap in the face to Islam, but he is useful to them at present, but not for much longer.
        So, Obama enables this cancer to enter the U S. Their goal is to cleanse the U S of all it’s perversions. These warriors for Islam will not likely do anything of any significance until next summer, as this is an election year, and they don’t want to jeopardize their presence just yet.
        Don’t be surprised if next summer they attack, in a big way a gay pride parade. What an easy target, with a very high body count, and of course a strong statement, that they will feel fully justified in making.
        This will be the silver lining, the wake-up call, because the left-wits who have been bowing, codling, and embracing Islam will themselves have been slapped in the head.
        Could this unite the country, possibly, but it may take a number Islamic attacks to do it.

        • Americana

          You have gotta be kidding me… You’re going to claim the reason we haven’t had greater carnage of late and more numbers of spectacular attacks is because ISIS is being reticent over the American Presidential election??? What about the San Bernardino attack? What about all the attacks the FBI and Homeland Security have foiled of late? I’ve never such absurd reasoning in my life. There’s no reason WHATSOEVER for ISIS to hold off on executing successful attacks in the U.S. when their backs are up against the wall in Iraq. If anything, successful attacks on the U.S. homeland would inspire their troops who are losing ground in Iraq to think that ISIS really does stand a chance.

          ISIS may wish to “cleanse the U.S. of all its perversions” but it’s not going “to happen next summer” and certainly Pres. Obama’s championing of gay rights isn’t meant as an opening for ISIS or other Islamists and Muslims to deride the American way of life, gay or straight. After all, the Muslim world has its own issues w/confronting their gays. The fact Islamic countries have committed crimes against gays is something Muslim gays are also fighting on their own terms. Either see through the fog of your bigotry or not, the Muslim gays will prevail just as Western gays are prevailing. Biology will prevail over the most simplistic human laws regarding homosexuality whether those laws are supposedly divinely inspired or not.

          • rifftop

            Attacks such as San Bernardino and others like it……..the head chopping of the office worker etc……..are not big enough to have the Obama loyalists wake up and comprehend the situation. Even the Boston bombing by entrenched “American’ muslims caused little retribution, push back or protests by dumbed down Americans to deport muslims and end the migration/visas to any more of them to arrive here. People are so stupid and worry more about being label racist or some such crap, rather than wake up , face the enemy and get him out of your “home”. The major muslim groups do not actually want to do a major assault while Obama is here…….He still supports and caters to them…….overseas, by not destroying them …..and continues to import more of them every day to the US…….HE’S THEIR GODFATHER IN THE US. When he’s gone, unless drastic actions are taken, they will continue to gear up for some nasty attack that will be more than a dozen or so casualties. They have 20 or more muslim militias FESTERING AROUND THE US….training and feeding each other ideas to make our lives miserable. Yet state, local police, the feds do NOTHING TO GET THEM OUT, MAKE THEIR LIVES HARD, CONFISCATE THEIR AK 47’S , LOCK THEM UP OR FORCE THEM TO SELF DEPORT. We have no government to protect us from this overseas invasion.

            http://www.twincities.com/2016/06/03/minnesota-islamic-state-trial-verdict/

            Are you kidding me???? Today was the conclusion of yet another of the Somali-American trials for Somali youths who wanted to join ISIS. ALL THREE YOUNG MEN WERE JUDGED GUILTY ON **ALL COUNTS** BUT ONE and that one guy escaped only a charge of PERJURY. Now the sentencing phase of the trial hasn’t happened but the judge is not likely to give these young men the minimum sentence given the fact other Somali youths from the same community have actually made their way to Syria and Iraq and are serving in ISIS.

            This trial was dependent on the infiltration of the group by another Somali-American and his serving as an informant for a long time, keeping the FBI and Homeland Security abreast of how the group was progressing in terms of making final plans to leave the U.S. for Iraq.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            What has happened as far as attacks go, in this country, since Obama took office, are on a scale of 1 to 10 a 0.5 I said significant, I did not say that there would not be any, and I said that they would not go after Obama while he is still in office.
            And yes, there will not be any attacks of any major significance until after the election. If they do anything of any real relevance prior to the election, then anti-Muslim sentiment in this country would go over the top, Trump would be a shoe in for the presidency, Clinton, Obama, Sanders, and the mainstream news media may as well just suck wind, nothing that they would say in defence of Islam would matter a damn.

          • Americana

            If you think the ISIS folks would wait in hopes of influencing the American Presidential election when they’re in such desperate need of a MAJOR PR PLAY RIGHT NOW because of having their backs against the wall in Iraq et al, you’ve got another think coming. ISIS is all about trying to keep the flow of recruits coming in, training up and then immediately being sent to war.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            and that is another good reason why they are waiting.

          there might be some truth in your concept. Obama is obviously a shill for muslims and the globalists. There is NO DOUBT that Obama is a muslim……his bio proves it. I never heard of any Christian living and studying in a madrassa, wearing an Arabic ring, holding Ramadan ceremonies in the white house, speaking and reading Arabic….and running off from the WH every Christmas or Easter to avoid the CHRISTIAN HOLIDAYS. He ha proven a tool for the muslims in many ways, importing them endlessly, bowing to their sheiks, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood to take over Egypt, refusing to destroy ISIS, refusing to call radical ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, AND ON AND ON. What a disgrace and what idiots elected this bum TWICE. Obama’s fake church under “Rev.” Wright is a muslim front for Farakhan, who is good buddies with Wright. There is nothing Christian about that scam church. In fact it’s an insult to all real Christians to have a vile dirt bag like Wright claim to be a Christian.

        It’s been GLARINGLY OBVIOUS that Obama hates this country and is a shill, operative for the globalists. Soros and the Marxist world agenda. The problem is the percentage of MORONS IN THE US has grown to dangerous levels, while causing immense economic, security and cultural damage to the middle class taxpayer, citizen. The years of intentional lies, deceit, theft and misuse of our money is beyond criminal……..and equivalent to CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. Obama is essentially an international criminal, but his race protects his actions…….as all politicians or judicial members fear the empty title of racist.
