Not only have we failed to learn the lessons of 9/11, we have done the exact opposite of what prudence should have dictated regarding immigration and border policy.
Today I am joined by Todd Bensman (@BensmanTodd), senior national security fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies. Bensman draws upon his experience in intelligence for the Texas Department of Public Safety to discuss the threat of Middle Easterners at our southern border.
Bensman believes the threat of granting asylum to Middle Easterners at our border is being ignored by much of the political class. It remains our Achilles heel because “terrorists are unlikely to come here with a bomb; they will come with a good story.” We are admitting a number of Middle Easterners at our border through our broken asylum system. Todd believes that we have a problem with a migrant trail just like in Europe. He explains the pipeline through Latin America and how there is a well-established process for bringing in Middle Easterners.
The moral of the story? Why are we not focusing more on the border, visas, and Latin American relations since 9/11 rather than Middle Eastern civil wars? When will we learn the lessons of 9/11?
