When it comes to national security, the Obama administration is doing what it does best: stonewalling.
On Monday, Senators’ Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) revealed that they have been urging the administration to release information about 41 foreign-born individuals who entered the United States after being arrested for plotting to commit acts of terror.
Despite the clear threat posed to Americans by these individuals, the White House has refused to provide Congress with any of the information it has requested about them. These 41 would-be terrorists are part of a larger wave of men trying to enter the country with extremist links. At least 113 people who entered the US recently have been directly tied to terrorist activities according to Congress.
Now you would think that any president would be quick to investigate known terrorists trying to enter the country. But instead of apprehending them, the Obama administration has not just permitted them to enter, but has prevented the legislative branch from learning major information about them.
