The immigration issue continues to grow. We’ve already covered critical examples where immigration policy may be intertwined with economic warfare. What’s happening in Europe today is also finding its way to America and the implications are serious. Even typically tolerant Sweden is growing increasingly concerned by the wave of immigration.
Rather than recap, just check out our previous posts:
Some believe that the wave of immigration has the political purpose of establishing a permanent Democrat majority. From a Conservative Review editorial (October 15, 2015):
- Over the past 18 years, the U.S. has admitted over roughly 700,000-800,000 citizens into our voting population every year, with a few years reaching 1 million.
- Between 1989-2013, the U.S. has admitted 25.3 million legal permanent residents.
- During a comparable 25-year period at the height of the Great Wave, from 1900-1924, only 16.8 million green cards were issued. The current wave has been 66% larger than the Great Wave in terms of green cards issued.
- While the immigration wave of the modern era was 66% larger than the Great Wave, the “naturalization wave” underway is 329% greater.
- 3.52 million immigrants have been naturalized in California since 1996, roughly one-fourth of the total naturalizations nationwide.
That may well be the political reasoning and is concerning enough. But should we sacrifice our nation’s security?
We need to be aware that we don’t have reliable systems to vet the refugees coming from Syria or immigrants coming over the border. Because the data is unavailable, we can’t really tell who might be a problem and who might not according to FBI Director James Comey.
Iran is on one side of the Syrian war, supporting the current regime. Some of the opposition is ISIS, another radical group using immigration to spread influence. We know that ISIS is the prime suspect in terror attacks in Turkey. We also have reports from Texas officials that ISIS members may have crossed the southern border into Texas. From Independent Journal (October 6, 2015):
Steven McCraw, the Director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, was speaking at the annual Texas Border Coalition meeting in Laredo when he was asked if he thought any ISIS members had been nabbed at the Texas-Mexico border.
McCraw answered: “Individuals that come across the Texas/Mexican border from countries with a known terrorism presence – and the answer to that is yes.” McCraw’s statement isn’t the first revelation that members of terror groups might be sneaking into the U.S. from Mexico.
Given that, is it simply a matter of time before radicals on either side of the Syrian war infiltrate the West to spread damage?
We have CNN reporting that ISIS is already attacking the American electric grid. So far, the attacks have been unsuccessful but the strong intent is there. And the risk is that more sophisticated capabilities are available for a price.
