Senate Report: Canadian Border Just As ‘Significant’ A Terrorist Pathway As Mexican Border

After the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, American's should be concerned that those who are responsible for vetting incoming refugees and migrants, may not be doing a sufficient job. Consider the fact that the terrorist wife, Tashfeen Malik, who killed so many innocent people, had been investigated and given a fiancé visa, while having ties to radical Islam, makes trusting our government or the Canadian government to do a thorough job with immigrants, impossible.

Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee said the borders are not secure.

He raised concerns about the rushed refugee plans of new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “It is a concern with the new prime minister, Trudeau, opening up his border to refugees. They can come into America, so I would say that increases our risk,” Johnson said.

The 100 page report the committee compiled was based on:

…dozens of hearings, interviews and trips, cites terror arrests in Canada and U.S. border states of Islamic State threats and quotes several experts raising concerns about how easy it is for illegal immigrants and terrorists to cross in from Canada.

Specifically regarding terrorism, on page 42, it states:

The nexus between known or suspected terrorists in eastern Canada and the northern parts of the U.S. represent a significant national security threat. Communities in Minnesota and New York, which are adjacent to Ontario and Quebec, have recently experienced apprehensions of individuals on terrorist charges. For example, on November 26, 2014, two men in Minneapolis, Minnesota were charged with recruiting and conspiring to provide support to ISIL. Similarly, on September 17, 2014, a man in Rochester, New York was arrested on similar charges after the FBI provided evidence showing that he attempted to recruit fighters and funds for ISIL.

We are not safe, especially when we have an Obama Administration who seems hell bent on destroying this country by not securing the borders and protecting the citizens.
