The hue and cry among liberals is to allow Muslim refugees into the USA without limits or restrictions. But there is never any thought given to who may be allowed into the USA as a refugee especially in this age of terrorism.
Now an alarm is being raised which the liberal main stream media ignores. Air Marshal Sir Stuart Peach, Britain’s senior military commander, has warned that “a network of combat experienced terrorists” may be head to Europe and the USA. This is based on British Intelligence working in the Middle East. In a speech at the London-based think tank Royal United Services Institute Peach stated,” They (ISIS) are losing territory rapidly, foreign fighters are being killed and displaced but they are moving in migrant flows, hiding in plain sight.” He warned that thousands of ISIS adherents have secured new identities to get through check points. Sir Stuart warned, “How we manage identity in a world where people are deliberately trying to destroy their identity documents and move in migrant flows – it is a very important document.”
Now Trump’s so-called Muslim travel ban addresses the very issue that Sir Stuart Peach warned about – migrant identity. The visa ban is designed to stop possible terrorists from migrating to the USA as simple refugees; therefore, Trump’s ban is prudent.
There have also been warnings about a loop hole in the visa process. American security experts warned that the present visa program admits religious workers from other countries on a temporary basis. According to the visa regulations, non-immigrant clerics and religious workers, including spouses and unmarried children under 21, are allowed to stay in the United States for up to five years. They can then apply for permanent resident status.
Adnan Khan, former president of the Council of Pakistan American Affairs, warned “People have come in and tried to come in with this visa to preach their hardline and dangerous views, and then encourage [the] vulnerable to travel back with them where they are further brainwashed and can potentially be used to harm the USA. The solution isn’t banning innocent Muslims and migration, but looking at visas like this one which have raised red flags and caused trouble in the past.”
Khan tried to have the Obama Administration look into this issue but was ignored for years despite the fact that he was a Muslim trying to warn the administration about the danger.
Despite the urgency of these warning liberals play politics. Liberal judges and the ACLU have consistently block President Trump’s efforts to have better screening of people applying for visas. Rather than place the security and well-being of all Americans first, they do their utmost to block, impede and obstruct Trump’s Administration adjusting the visa process so there is more stringent vetting to weed out the hardliners and terrorists Peach and Khan warned about.
The liberal mentality is making the US more vulnerable to possible future terrorist attacks. They will deny their culpability but their idealism will fuel and expedite jihadi efforts to kill Americans. Like Obama, they will never admit their guilty as accessories in terrorist evil deeds but will rationalize that it is the fault of others. Yet by fighting efforts to amend and fix our visa process, they will have to share responsible for any attacks on American soil.
Now is the time to support President Trump and make America safe. Stringent vetting now could save American lives later.
