With Biden’s broken border resulting in a couple of million people taking the cue of an open invite, you never know who might take advantage of such ‘hospitality’.
It’s not as if they’re showing ID at the border, or even bringing it with them in many cases.
Dems tend to scoff at concerns of ‘security risks’ being raised by the political right as they roll out their plan to flood the country with future voters. But aside from the known problem of criminal cartels who, increasingly, hold the real control of our border — there’s another issue. Terrorists.
There are people in the world that mean America harm. It’s the job of the government to defend the interests of their citizens against such people. Biden has refused to do so, which leads us to stories like this one:
U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended a suspected terrorist from Saudi Arabia in western Arizona late last week after he attempted to enter the United States illegally from Mexico.
The 21-year-old man from Saudi Arabia was encountered by federal law enforcement on Dec. 16 wearing a jacket for the Volunteer Ambulance Corps in Central Oneida County, located in upstate New York. The man’s name was not disclosed.
“#USBP #YumaSector agents apprehended a potential terrorist who illegally entered the U.S. from Mexico Thursday night. The 21-year-old migrant from Saudi Arabia is linked to several Yemeni subjects of interest,” Chris Clem, the top Border Patrol agent in Yuma, Arizona, wrote in a Twitter post Monday. —WashingtonExaminer
Is this a unique case? Of course not.
In August, the outgoing national Border Patrol chief, Rodney Scott, told agents they were catching people from the Terrorist Screening Database “at a level we have never seen before.”
The surge of migrants at the southern border over the past nine months has prompted Border Patrol to pull more than 40% of agents from the field to help transport, process, and care for people in custody, meaning fewer agents patrol for national security threats. Often, smugglers send large groups of families and children to divert agents to one area and then run other contraband or people over the border where agents are not present.–WashingtonExaminer
He described cartels as ‘masterfully exploiting’ the diversions provided by the easing of Trump’s restrictions. This includes using large groups of ordinary asylum seekers to tie up and distract Border patrol while less savory people cross at a nearby location where resources thin out to compensate.
Meanwhile, Texans are sick of waiting for the Federal Government to do the right thing. They are now using the same contractor Trump had hired and have resumed building the wall, using State funds.
GEORGE P. BUSH: We went to work knowing that the Biden administration wouldn’t do their job. So we were proud to announce on Saturday morning that it was the people of Texas [building] on state-owned land. We finally said enough is enough. Enough of the open borders policy. Enough of the record spike in violent crime and drug smuggling that we’ve seen in border communities in Texas. And we’re going to take matters into our own hands knowing that, in the next three years, we’re not going to get assistance from the federal government on this issue. So we’re excited with the first stretch of wall that is being constructed to address one of the most trafficked corridors of violence that you’ll find in our entire state – a two-mile stretch where over 100 migrants come across on a daily basis. — FoxNews
But that’s not all. They’re getting the courts involved.
Building on a lawsuit filed back in October, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, along with the State of Missouri, has submitted a motion for a preliminary injunction in an attempt to get the Biden administration to resume building a wall at the southern border.
Paxton said Tuesday that the preliminary injunction would ask a federal court to order the Biden administration to immediately resume constructing the wall, which was kicked off under the Trump administration.
“The Biden Administration again and again refuses to aid Texans battling the border crisis every day,” Paxton said. “Their response to this crisis is irresponsible, inhumane and inexcusable. It is time for them to quit hiding behind red tape and help Americans in need. This congressionally-approved border wall will help law enforcement along the border and restore order to our state. A physical wall is essential for border security, and I am demanding that President Biden do his part to keep Texas and America safe.” —KHOU
Sometimes, you just need to take a stand and fight.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
