Evidence That MSM Pushed For Immigration Control BEFORE Trump
Back in 2013, ABC News covered a story where we accidentally allowed terrorists in because our vetting procedure was too lax. This is the mainstream media claiming that we needed to up our standards. They actually cared about American citizen’s welfare.
According to ABC News:
“Several dozen suspected terrorist bombmakers, including some believed to have targeted American troops, may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the United States as war refugees, according to FBI agents investigating the remnants of roadside bombs recovered from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The discovery in 2009 of two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky — who later admitted in court that they’d attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq — prompted the bureau to assign hundreds of specialists to an around-the-clock effort aimed at checking its archive of 100,000 improvised explosive devices collected in the war zones, known as IEDs, for other suspected terrorists’ fingerprints.
“We are currently supporting dozens of current counter-terrorism investigations like that,” FBI Agent Gregory Carl, director of the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center (TEDAC), said in an ABC News interview to be broadcast tonight on ABC News’ “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “Nightline”.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if there were many more than that,” said House Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul. “And these are trained terrorists in the art of bombmaking that are inside the United States; and quite frankly, from a homeland security perspective, that really concerns me.”
“How do you have somebody that we now know was a known actor in terrorism overseas, how does that person get into the United States? How do they get into our community?” wondered Bowling Green Police Chief Doug Hawkins, whose department assisted the FBI.
Department of Homeland Security spokesperson Peter Boogaard said in a statement that the U.S. government “continually improves and expands its procedures for vetting immigrants, refugees and visa applicants, and today [the] vetting process considers a far broader range of information than it did in past years.”
“Our procedures continue to check applicants’ names and fingerprints against records of individuals known to be security threats, including the terrorist watchlist, or of law enforcement concern… These checks are vital to advancing the U.S. government’s twin goal of protecting the world’s most vulnerable persons while ensuring U.S. national security and public safety,” the statement said.”
What happened? Look at just this segment they are clearly concerned about vetting migrants. When did the MSM stop caring about American citizens?
Now we have presidential candidates that are pushing for an open border and the MSM is echoing them. They are shaming the president and border patrol for keeping us safe. Some politicians are calling for the end of ICE. House Dems forced a government shutdown just to prove that they were not going to work with the president, in trying to better border security. Trump had to override House Dems with an executive order. This just goes to show you how the Dems and MSM have lost sight of the big picture.
We have Border agents calling out mayday at the border. We should be all over this regardless of political affiliation. Trump has proven by far that he is more concerned about the welfare of American citizens than any of the Dems. That is just sad when a whole party neglects their own country and neighbors.
