Obama reluctantly did it, and you can imagine that conversation. You know things had to be really bad, given Obama’s penchant for Muslims.
Obama capitulated, because dozens of terror attacks have occurred in the U.S. on his watch, and they were carried out by Muslim immigrants and refugees.
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), chairman for the Subcommittee on Immigration and Natural Interest recently disclosed:
“The [subcommittee] has identified at least 26 foreign-born individuals inside the U.S. who have either been charged with or convicted of terrorism in the last year with even more examples going back several years.”
The list helps explain the motivation for President Trump’s quick action to implement a temporary refugee ban.
According to AL, most of the immigrants and refugees who plotted terror on U.S. targets were from majority-Muslim countries.
If we don’t know how terrorists are entering the U.S., how can we possibly stop future attacks? But this intelligence provides law enforcement with crucial information to successfully wage the domestic war on terror.
Senator Sessions emphasized that these terrorist attacks highlight the need for greater scrutiny of those coming into the United States.
“U.S. officials have no capacity to predict whether those seeking refuge are likely to join militant groups.” Sessions added that these incidents are just a few of those identified by his committee. They should serve as a warning against any plan for relocation of immigrants, especially from Syria.
As a reminder, President Trump’s travel ban includes refugees from the following seven countries: Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia. Refugees and immigrants from four of these countries are included on the list of terror attacks on U.S. soil, above.
Imagine if a terror attack happened on President Trump’s watch out of the gate. The cries of, “He can’t protect you!” would resonate worldwide.
