Immigration Attorney and Magistrate Arrested For Human Smuggling

Getting in on Biden’s game!

Texas immigration attorney and federal magistrate arrested for human smuggling

By: O. Gloria Okorie, KXXV, Aug 21, 2022

KINNEY COUNTY, Texas — An immigration attorney and federally appointed magistrate in Texas was arrested and charged with smuggling of a human and resisting arrest.

Timothy D. Japhet was arrested Saturday afternoon in Kinney County by Constable Jimmy Fullen. Four adult men were detained alongside Japhet.

It is unknown if the men were taken against their will or if they paid Japhet to transport them. It is also unknown if Japhet represented the group legally.

According to an identification card retrieved by Fullen, Japhet has been licensed since 2003.

Authorities did not disclose whether the men were citizens, legal residents or undocumented, or their country of origin.

The current whereabouts and status of the four men were not provided.

LAND OF THE FREE STUFF: New York City Gives Away Cell Phones and Healthcare To Illegals

Nothing is free, we, the taxpayer are paying for this treason. We are suffering record inflation, skyrocketing food and fuel prices and brutal violent crimes but illegals who break federal laws are being put first in NYC.

Hundreds of migrants line up at NYC hospital for health care, food, free phones

By Kyle Schnitzer and David Meyer, The NY Post, August 21, 2022:

Hundreds of migrants — at least some bused to the Big Apple by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott — lined up outside Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx on Sunday to get health care coverage, food and other items including school supplies and free phones.

The event, organized by the city hospital system, was billed as a “resource and family fun day” for the migrants and their children, many of whom have come to New York City in droves in recent weeks.

“I came to New York about three days ago. I am a welder, and I am looking for work here,” Venezuelan refugee Adrian Medina, 32, said through a translator.
These are people/families coming from Colombia, Honduras and other Latin American countries, some came looking for better living conditions, others running away from dangerous conditions.
Migrants were provided healthbcare coverage, food and other items including school supplies and free phones in the Bronx Sunday.

Medina said he arrived on a bus that left Texas five days ago, after a solo trek from his home country that included six days of walking in the jungle.

Now living at Bellevue Men’s Shelter, Medina said he saw a flier for the event there. He was waiting in line for ice cream when he spoke to The Post.

“I’m feeling a little bit better now, but when I first arrived, I wasn’t good,” he said. “We did not sleep or eat well.”

A fellow Venezuelan, Luis Quintana, 48, said he came to the event “to get an ID and health insurance” after arriving in the city from Texas on Friday.

“I’m feeling well now, but I wasn’t. I was uncomfortable on the bus. The bathroom on the bus was closed for several hours,” Quintana said.

“I came to New York to get away from the delinquency in Venezuela, cops in the streets, armed people. I want to work and progress.”

A couple and their two children, also from Venezuela, were waiting patiently in line in the hope of getting legal assistance to help them stay in the US.

“We came here today looking for help from a lawyer for political asylum

Joe Biden’s 2022 migrant invasion breaks records, despite government numbers hiding huge number of ‘got-aways’

Free-for-all open borders means an open invitation to literally anyone, jihadists, drug dealers and human traffickers included.

From economic damage to threats to national security, Joe Biden is destroying America from within.

Joe Biden’s 2022 Migrant Flood Breaks Records

by Neil Munro, Breitbart, August 18, 2022:

Another 199,976 economic migrants arrived at the southern border in July, ensuring President Joe Biden’s 2022 migration exceeds the total 2021 numbers, even though August and September numbers have yet to be added.

The government tracks the migrant arrival and inflow data by its “Fiscal Year” calendar, which starts October 1 and ends September 30. The total 2022 number will be known once the August and September numbers are counted.

In all 12 months of fiscal 2021, officials counted 1,734,686 migrants at the border and allowed 671,160 into the United States via various border-law loopholes.

But in the first 10 months of fiscal 2022, border officials have counted 1,946,780 migrants at the border and allowed 1,012,378 economic migrants to seek homes and jobs throughout the United States.

This July, Biden’s deputies admitted 125,403 of the 199,976 arriving migrants. The 2022 admission numbers show a 50 percent jump over 2021, with two months to go.

The numbers are flawed. For example, the numbers counted at the border are inflated when rejected migrants repeatedly try to sneak across the border.

But the bigger problem is that the government numbers hide the huge inflow of “got-aways” — people who sneak past the few patrol agents and the incomplete border wall along the border. Insiders within the border agencies say the agencies count roughly 40,000 got-aways each month or roughly 500,000 per year….

NPR Poll: 54% of Americans Agree Border Crisis an ‘Invasion’

A majority of Americans say President Biden is allowing a southern border invasion, according to a poll commissioned by taxpayer-supported, left-wing propaganda outlet National Public Radio (NPR).

Fifty-four percent of all respondents believe the term “invasion” is valid; that includes 76 percent of Republicans, 46 percent of independents, and even 40 percent of Democrats.

A mere 19 percent of all respondents — less than one in five — said the term is false.

The open-borders fanatics at NPR lamented the results from Ipsos, the polling firm, saying:

Republican leaders are increasingly framing the situation as an “invasion.” Immigrant advocates say the word has a long history in white nationalist circles, and warn that such extreme rhetoric could provoke more violence against immigrants.

Still, the polling shows that the word “invasion” has been embraced by a wide range of Americans to describe what’s happening at the border

“We are not actually screening enough people to make it safe for the rest of the country,” said poll respondent Michael Cisternino, a Republican from Nevada, in a follow-up interview. “We, the people of the United States, really don’t have control over who’s coming in, and where they’re going or what they’re going to do when they get there — if they’re criminals, if they’re not criminals.”

The Left always tries to smear any opposition to their agenda as “white nationalist,” but in fact there is a literal invasion at our southern border, and the Democrats have invited it. This is not “extreme rhetoric” but a demonstrably valid description of the border crisis.

The Ipsos poll may even have understated the public’s view of Biden’s migration as an “invasion,” because many respondents claimed ignorance or hid their views. For example, 36 percent of independents and 25 percent of Democrats said they “Don’t know” when asked about the term “invasion.”

NPR is a radio landscape crowded with liberal and leftist voices but nearly devoid of conservative hosts and anchors. In one of its most infamous moves, NPR in May 1994 announced its plan to air prison-life commentaries by convicted cop-killer (and former Black PantherMumia Abu-Jamal, a cause celebre of the academic left. Public outcry prompted cancellation of Abu-Jamal’s program.

Over the course of NPR’s history, some of its broadcasts have made big headlines with their incendiary anti-conservative rhetoric. In July 1995, for instance, after Republican Senator Jesse Helms had stated that the federal government was spending too much money on AIDS research, NPR’s legal-affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg said: “I think he [Helms] ought to be worried about what’s going on in the Good Lord’s mind, because if there is retributive justice, he’ll get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it.”

Biden’s Open Borders Policies Will Produce Parallel Societies on U.S. Soil

I love this headline from the New York Times: “G.O.P. Governors Cause Havoc by Busing Migrants to East Coast”.  The New York Times – best known for covering up the Holocaust and the Soviet-engineered famine that killed 7 to 10 million people in Ukraine – is wrong.  The fault here lies with the Biden administration.  Joe Biden caused this havoc with his open borders policies.  But for Joe Biden’s open borders policies, southwestern Governors would not be having to give liberal sanctuaries on the East Coast a taste of their own medicine.

I’ve documented in previous commentaries countless policy changes the Biden administration has made to open the borders to a flood of illegal aliens.  Here are some more ways the administration is deliberately popping the rivets of the nation’s immigration laws:  The U.S. Marshals Service is declaring itself a sanctuary for illegal aliens, meaning it will no longer hold detainees for ICE for deportation.  The Marshals Service is a bureau within the Justice Department, putting it under the control of Biden administration political appointees including Democrat partisan Attorney General Merrick Garland.

The Biden administration is asking the Supreme Court to approve guidelines giving most illegal aliens a pass when it comes to deportation. The administration cooked up the guidelines in a conspiracy with pro-open borders advocacy groups from outside the government.  The administration is ending the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy for asylum applicants after winning a court battle for permission to do so.

The administration is establishing a boat-and-bus route from Colombia to Panama to bring illegal aliens to the United States quicker.  The administration terminated the ICE union to silence criticism and make it easier to fire whistleblowers who are now without union protection.  For all its recent talk of building the wall again, the administration halted construction of the wall near San Diego.

As a result of the administration’s open borders policy changes, border encounters in July were more than triple the Trump administration average, and that doesn’t even count the got-aways.  The number of arrests at the southern border is closing in on 2 million for the fiscal year.

There are real consequences in inviting millions of people to invade our country.  Border agents arrested ten more terrorism suspects at the border in July.  A Defense Department whistleblower revealed the administration has released 324 unvetted Afghan evacuees on a terror watch list into the U.S.  Another 9/11, anyone?

There are other consequences, as well.  Border crossers are dropping like flies, but the administration doesn’t care.  An FBI-led operation rescued 84 victims of child sex trafficking and found 37 more missing children in the last 2 weeks.  Increased child exploitation has been linked to Joe Biden’s open borders policies.   The amount of fentanyl seized at the border in July was triple the amount seized in June, shattering all previous records and providing enough to kill every single American.

You only have to look to Sweden to see the future of all this.  They let their country be invaded by hordes of migrants bringing an alien culture with them.  Then there was a wave of bombings in major cities.  That was followed by the establishment of Muslim no-go zones, which were once vociferously denied but are now admitted.  Things have deteriorated to the point, now, where the ruling party is reversing itself and proposing to break up Muslim majority areas so a parallel society does not get established in the country, a proposal also made in Denmark which let itself be overrun.

So, when the New York Times and other lapdogs for the Biden administration accuse southwestern Governors of causing chaos by busing illegal aliens to the East Coast, just remember it is the open borders crowd that is bringing us chaos to the point where parallel societies on U.S. soil are now a real possibility.  If you don’t believe me, all you have to do is walk in downtown Minneapolis where the Islamic call to prayer is blasted from two dozen mosques and heard on every street corner every day.  So, take a walk there, while you still can.

Analysis: 4.9 Million Illegal Aliens Have Crossed U.S. Borders Since President Biden Took Office

The amount of fentanyl seized in July 2022 is equivalent to 469 million lethal doses.


Washington, D.C. — The Federation for American Immigration Reform issued the following statement, as well as a deeper dive into the growing border crisis, based on data quietly released yesterday by the Biden administration:

Earlier this month, President Biden took credit for the July inflation rate being “only” 8.5 percent. Now that July border numbers are finally public, the White House may take credit for the fact that “only” 199,976 illegal aliens crossed our border, down from 207,416 in June. A minor drop in border encounters is not encouraging. Traditionally, numbers drop in the hottest summer months, and last month’s figures actually represent a 325 percent increase over the average number of July apprehensions under the Trump administration. More significantly, July numbers bring the total of illegal aliens crossing our borders since President Biden took office to 4.9 million, including some 900,000 “gotaways” who eluded apprehension and have since disappeared into American communities.

“Roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Ireland has illegally entered the United States in the 18 months President Biden has been in office, with many being released into American communities. In that time, the Biden administration has blamed an unprecedented surge of illegal immigration on all sorts of external factors, except their own sabotage of our nation’s immigration laws. The endless flow of illegal aliens and the incursion of lethal narcotics pouring across our border will not end until this administration demonstrates a willingness to enforce our laws,” said Dan Stein, president of FAIR.

FAIR Border Snapshot for July 2022

  • Since President Biden took office, nearly 4.9 million illegal aliens have crossed our borders.
  • This includes the 3.9 million nationwide total reported by CBP – which includes a whopping 3.4 million at our Southwest border – as well as approximately 900,000 gotaways who have entered the country undetected per agency sources.
  • CBP had 199,976 encounters at the Southwest border in July 2022, including 134,362 single adults, 51,822 family units, and 13,299 unaccompanied minors.
  • This is a 325 percent increase from the average number of July apprehensions under President Trump.
  • CBP has encountered more illegal aliens in just 10 months of FY 2022 than in the entirety of FY 2021.
  • July was the 17th straight month with more than 150,000 encounters.
  • CBP reports that 10 individuals on the FBI’s terror watchlist were apprehended between ports of entry at the Southwest border in July, bringing the total for the current fiscal year to 66.
  • The Biden administration continues its crusade to end the Title 42 public health authority, despite extending other COVID-related national emergencies.
  • In July, CBP expelled only 37 percent of illegal aliens using Title 42, a 7 percent drop compared to last month.
  • 2,071 pounds of fentanyl and 12,989 pounds of methamphetamine were seized at the southern border in July, with much more getting through because Border Patrol agents are busy processing illegal aliens.
  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The amount of fentanyl seized in July is equivalent to 469 million lethal doses.

NYC’s Mayor Adams’ Immigration Theater of the Absurd

It is time for NYC to end deadly “Sanctuary Policies.”


Out of obvious frustration with the current immigration crisis along the U.S./Mexican border Texas Governor Greg Abbott has resorted to sending busloads of illegal aliens caught entering the United States illegally in his state along the Mexican border, to New York City, Washington, DC and other cities far from the southern border to publicize the situation that Texans face because of Biden’s immigration policies.

On August 5, 2022, The Texas Tribune reported, Gov. Greg Abbott says Texas is now busing migrants to New York City

Here is an excerpt from that report:

The back and forth is steeped in political tensions as the Republican governor — running for reelection and considered a potential presidential candidate — tries to show that Democratic mayors are not as sympathetic to the plight of migrants as their party claims to be. Abbott’s critics have said he is using migrants as pawns in a cynical plot that does little to actually solve border problems.

Caught in the middle is President Joe Biden, who Abbott has long blamed for the border situation. Bowser has turned to the administration for help, asking last month for the Department of Defense to deploy the National Guard to her city. CNN reported Friday morning that the Pentagon has denied Bowser’s request.

New York also still wants help from the federal government.

“NYC will continue to welcome asylum seekers w/ open arms, as we have always done, but we still need support from DC,” Levy, the Adams spokesperson, said on Twitter.

Abbott sent a letter Monday to Adams and Bowser inviting them to the border region to “see firsthand the dire situation.” In rebuffing Abbott’s invitation, a spokesperson for Adams said Abbott should focus on helping “asylum seekers in Texas as we have been hard at work doing in New York City.”

It is incredible, that according this this report, that President Joe Biden is “caught in the middle.”  Biden’s actions and lack of actions are a principle cause of this disaster. In reality, America and Americans are actually “caught in the middle!”

Perhaps, as I noted in a recent article, Joe is motivated by greed, Profiteers of Biden Administration’s Open Borders Policy Malfeasance has it rewards.

Remarkably, New York Mayor Adams is incensed that several bus loads of illegal aliens have been sent to his city by Governor Abbott but has been notably silent about the The Midnight Flights of the Biden Administration.

It is also worth noting that Adams reefers to these illegal aliens as “asylum seekers.”  While it is true that many have filed applications for asylum, the vast majority of those applications have no merit and will be denied.  Most of these illegal aliens are not political refugees but are simply fleeing poverty and crime in their home countries.  Political asylum is only granted to aliens who can prove Credible Fear that because of their race, religion, ethnicity, political ideology or other such factors face persecution, or worse in their home countries.  Once again Adams has opted to use language to obfuscate the truth about illegal immigration and provide illegal aliens with a level of legitimacy to which they are not truly entitled.

This is the equivalent of describing a homeless person with no job and no means of support as “An aspiring millionaire” because he/she purchased a lottery ticket!

Some of the reporters who are covering the “crisis on the Southern Border,” created and exacerbated by the Biden Administration, have breathlessly declared, “Now every border is a border state!”

The reality is that I have been making that point for decades I stated that “every state is a border state,” but for far different reasons.

Consider my prepared testimony when I testified at a hearing conducted on March 13, 2013 by the Senate Judiciary Committee on the topic: Building An Immigration System Worthy Of American Values

Every state is indeed a border state, but not simply because aliens who run our southern border and enter without inspection make their way to cities and states across our nation, but rather because while most “journalists” are fixated on the dangerous 2,000 mile U.S./Mexican border they ignore the northern border of the United States that is roughly twice as long as the Mexican border.  They ignore the more than 1,500 miles that separates Alaska from Canada and they ignore the 95,000 miles of coastline that encircles the United States.  Finally, they ignore the international airports that are scattered across the United States in virtually every state.

Furthermore it is an absurdity to think that if it were not for Governor Abbott there would be no illegal aliens in the Big Apple.  In reality, the impact of sending busloads of illegal aliens to NYC is a bit like sending a couple of truckloads of sand to the beach!

In point of fact, on March 11, 2019 the Pew Research Center published a report, 20 metro areas are home to six-in-ten unauthorized immigrants in U.S. that stated, in part,

By far the biggest unauthorized immigrant populations in 2016 were in the New York (1.1 million) and Los Angeles metro areas (925,000). Both metros had unauthorized immigrant populations that exceeded the statewide total in every state except California and Texas. No other metro area approached a million. Meanwhile, the smallest unauthorized immigrant populations among the top 20 areas were in Austin and Charlotte (100,000 each).

Where “Border States” are concerned, New York State hits the “Trifecta”- it borders on Canada to the north and has a number of international airports, seaports and an extensive coastline.

My recent commentary, Biden’s Immigration Policies Vs. National Security & Public Safety included this excerpt:

On June 6, 1993 a dilapidated and vermin-infested boat, the Golden Venture ran aground in the Rockaways, a coastal neighborhood in Queens, New York.  On board were some 300 illegal aliens from China who had paid alien smugglers thousands of dollars to enter the United States without inspection and they hoped, without detection.

On June 7, 2018 a local newspaper, The Rockaway Times, published a detailed report about that event, The Golden Venture: 25 Years Later.

For decades New York City and New York States implemented “Sanctuary Polices” that undermine national security and public safety and violate the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.

Indeed, on February 27, 2003 I testified at a hearing conducted by the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims on the topic: New York City’s `Sanctuary’ Policy And The Effect Of Such Policies On Public Safety, Law Enforcement, And Immigration

Mayor Adams is now seeking financial assistance for the Biden Administration to help the city cope with the economic impact of illegal immigration.  This actually something that I agree with- provided, of course that in exchange for such assistance he immediately end the dangerous “sanctuary policies” that for decades have drawn record numbers of illegal aliens to New York City.  As for the costs, way back in December 2007 the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issued a report, The Impact of Unauthorized Immigrants on the Budgets of State and Local Governments that included this excerpt:

In a separate study, the Pew Hispanic Center estimated that in 2004, more than 50 percent of those children who were them- selves unauthorized immigrants and almost 60 percent of adult unauthorized immigrants were uninsured. Moreover, 25 percent of those children who, by virtue of their birth, were U.S. citizens—but whose parents were unauthorized immigrants—also lacked health insurance. In terms of public education, unauthorized immigrants who are minors increase the overall number of students attending public schools, and they may also require more educational services than do native-born children because of a lack of proficiency in English. Analyses from several states indicate that the costs of educating students who did not speak English fluently were 20 percent to 40 percent higher than the costs incurred for native-born students.

In addition to differences in the types of services that federal, state, and local governments provide and the extent to which the unauthorized population participates in those programs, the income that unauthorized immigrants earn and the taxes they pay also contribute to their net impact on state and local budgets. Unauthorized immigrants typically earn less than do native-born citizens and other immigrant groups and, partly as a result . . .

Nearly 5 years ago I wrote about how NYC’s “Sanctuary” policies attract foreign drug traffickers, fugitives and terrorists in my article, New York City: Hub For The Deadly Drug Trade.  

Now, incredibly things have not just gotten worse, but insane- as I wrote, recently, Sanctuary Cities Now Provide Sanctuary For Deadly Illegal DrugsThe NYC Health Dept. shows how to use them “safely.”

Sanctuary policies of New York and other cities and states provide a powerful magnet that draw aspiring illegal aliens from around the world to enter the United States, by whatever means possible.  This simply adds more pressure to our borders and overwhelmed immigration system.

Adams is a former NYPD Captain and, I suspect this is why he won the election for Mayor.  New York voters wanted a mayor who would truly be the “new sheriff” in town who would restore safety to our communities and end the pervasive violence and bloodshed in what had been “America’s safest big city” until the lunatic Left implemented bail reform and other measures that protect criminals and endanger law abiding residents.

It is time for Eric Adams to end his histrionics and actually seek to “serve and protect” New Yorkers and Americans!

Biden’s Handlers Released 324 Unvetted Afghan Evacuees on Terror Watchlist into the U.S.

Biden’s catastrophically botched withdrawal from Afghanistan was bad enough in itself, diminishing America’s standing in the world and projecting an image of weakness that has encouraged and emboldened enemies of our nation worldwide. The fallout from it, however, could be incalculably worse. A Defense Department (DoD) whistleblower has revealed that 324 of the Afghans whom U.S. forces brought to the United States as the disaster in Afghanistan was unfolding appeared on the department’s Biometrically Enabled Watchlist (BEWL), which includes terrorists, and yet were admitted into the country without being vetted. No one who has been watching the spreading dumpster fire that is the Biden administration could possibly be surprised.

Senators Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) have called upon the DoD to investigate. On Thursday, they wrote to DoD Acting Inspector General Sean O’Donnell about their “concern over new allegations raised by a Department of Defense (DoD) whistleblower. This information may show the Biden Administration’s failure to vet those evacuated from Afghanistan was even worse than the public was led to believe. The following allegations demand an immediate investigation by your office.” There should indeed be an investigation, but in these days of the hyper-politicization of everything and concomitant wokeification of the government bureaucracy, a genuinely illuminating investigation is about as likely to happen as Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis getting the Democrat nomination for president in 2024.

Epoch Times reported Friday that “the BEWL identifies individuals whose biometrics have been collected and determined by analysts to be threats or potential threats to national security, including known suspected terrorists.” But instead of stopping those who appeared on this watchlist, the whistleblower contents that “White House and DoD officials instructed agency personnel to ‘cut corners’ and not conduct full fingerprint tests on the evacuees at staging bases in Europe, ‘in order to promote the rushed evacuation from Afghanistan.’”

The whistleblower also charges that “Department of Homeland Security (DHS) staff were authorized to delete old biometric data at their discretion.” Really, what could possibly go wrong? Hawley and Johnson point out, with admirable understatement, that this is a “troubling development that could threaten national security and public safety.”

Yeah, it could. And as it was all initially unfolding, Joe Biden was doing what he does best: lying. Sensitive to criticism arising from the importation of unvetted Afghans in the U.S., Biden declared in September 2021 that “planes taking off from Kabul are not flying directly to the United States. They’re landing at U.S. military bases and transit centers around the world. At these sites where they are landing, we are conducting thorough scrutiny — security screenings for everyone who is not a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident.” State Department spokesman Ned Price added: “Before anyone who is evacuated from Afghanistan comes to this country, they undergo a rigorous vet. Unless and until they complete that vet they will not be in a position to come to the U.S.”

In reality, however, there appeared to be a concerted effort to bring unvetted Afghans into the United States. At least 82,000 Afghans were brought to the U.S. without being vetted. In October 2021, Senate Republicans noted in a memo, accordingto the Washington Examiner, “senior officials across the departments of Homeland Security, Defense, State, and Justice described a disastrous screening and vetting process.” Immigration officials accepted uncritically what Afghans said about who they were, without making any effort to check their stories. According to the Examiner, “the large majority of people, approximately 75%, evacuated were not American citizens, green card holders, Afghan Special Immigrant Visa holders, or applicants for the visa.”

Special Immigrant Visas (SIV) had been given to Afghans who aided U.S. forces in Afghanistan. In September 2021, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed that “of the 60,000 Afghans who have entered the U.S., nearly 8,000 are either U.S. citizens or residents, while about 1,800 are SIV holders, having obtained visas after assisting the U.S. military.” That meant that 52,000 of the 60,000 Afghans who had come into the country were not U.S. citizens or SIV holders. In November 2021, Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) stated that only 700 of the 82,000 Afghans now in the U.S. were SIV holders.

The Examiner noted that Biden’s reception of these Afghans “violated long-standing U.S. government policies for handling refugees.” This was a deliberate decision: “Refugees are to be screened and vetted before being admitted to the U.S. through an extensive process that includes multiple interrogations. Rather than follow the protocol, the Biden administration instructed federal law enforcement and military officials handling the evacuations and processing to adhere to less stringent standards.”

Hawley confronted FBI director Christopher Wray about all this Thursday. According to Epoch Times, “Wray wasn’t able to give a clear answer about the FBI’s efforts to track down and interview the 324 Afghan evacuees.” Once again, no one should be surprised. Clearly this is all going the way the Leftist elites want it to go.

TX Gov. Abbott to NYC’s Adams: ‘Go Ahead Mayor, Make My Day’

Wednesday on FNC’s The Faulkner Focus, Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said that New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ threat to bring buses of New Yorkers to campaign against him would “make his day.”

Tuesday, while responding to Abbott busing migrants from Texas to New York City, Adams said, “I already called all of my friends in Texas and told them how to on cast their vote. And I am deeply contemplating taking a busload of New Yorkers to go to Texas and do some good old-fashioned door knocking. For the good of America, we need to get him out of office.”

Host Harris Faulkner said, “Your reaction to that latest threat from Mayor Adams in New York City?”

Abbott said, “I kind of feel like Clint Eastwood. Go ahead, Mayor, make my day. There could hardly be anything better to aid my campaign against [gun confiscation enthusiast Robert Francis] ‘Beto’ O’Rourke than to have Beto O’Rourke’s campaign aided by a bunch of New Yorkers. That will not be viewed very positively in the state of Texas.”

He added, “This race is about Texans, and Texans are fed up with what the Biden administration has done on our border, the chaos that it’s has caused, the damage that it’s caused in the state of Texas, and that is exactly why we’re sending these illegal immigrants to places like Washington, D.C. and New York City.”


Eric Adams

10 Known Connections

During a press conference in late July 2022, Adams told his constituents that it was their civic duty to welcome the fact that their schools, hospitals, roads, and neighborhoods were being inundated with the many illegal aliens who were settling in New York City, as in many other cities, during the Biden administration. Among the mayor’s remarks were the following:

  • “Number one, this is an opportunity for New Yorkers to move away from ‘Not In My Backyard.’ We all must share the crisis. Our approach has been to divide up the homeless issue even prior to the asylum seekers by councilmanic districts. Now with this influx of people seeking asylum and support, now we have to go beyond that. We’re looking at the potential for emergency shelters in hotels and other facilities … If there was ever an all-hands-on-deck moment, this is it … [O]ur system was inundated with those who were seeking shelter because of the callousness of those other states that were pushing them out.”
  • “We’re here, we’re receiving them, and everyone is going to have to be on board. And we can’t have the historical ‘I believe people should be housed but just don’t house them on my block.’ Everyone’s block is going to be impacted by this. And so we have to add our advocacy with our ability to help our neighbors. We need everyone on board with this.”
  • “As I said last week, our schools are going to be impacted, our healthcare system is going to be impacted, our infrastructure is going to be impacted … we’re going to need all New Yorkers to be with us on this.”

July 2022: 18 Illegal Aliens = 62 Child Rape/Child Sexual Assault Charges in North Carolina

“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”  Edward R. Morrow


The July issue of the Monthly Child Rapes by Illegal Aliens in North Carolina Report is up and the carnage continues.

For the month of July 2022, we were able to document 18 illegal aliens who committed 62 separate acts of child rape/child sexual assault.


The latest report can be found here.


All of our monthly reports can be found on our website

Many of these attacks occurred in the seven sanctuary city counties we currently have in North Carolina.

Thank goodness Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker was defeated in his re-election campaign, however, we still do not know where the man who defeated him, Willie Rowe (D), stands on cooperation with ICE officials. We have repeatedly asked his campaign for a response and have been ignored.

It would be helpful, to everyone in NC, if you would contact him and ask as well. Let’s force him to answer the question: “Will you cooperate with ICE officials as it pertains to ICE detainers?Here is the link to his contact form.

We DO know where the Republican challenger, former Wake Sheriff Donnie Harrison stands. He stands for equal enforcement of the law for everyone!

I’m sure when the November 2022 midterm election comes, you will choose appropriately.

Nikita Khrushchev’s ‘We will bury you’ threat is coming true under Biden and the Democrat Party

“‘Мы вас похороним!’ [We will bury you!]”,  Nikita Khrushchev Premier of the former Soviet Union at reception at the Polish embassy in Moscow on November 18, 1956.


Today many are seeing the collapse of the American economy, end of morality from the school house to the White House and attacks on the inalienable people’s rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as the end of our unique Constitutional Republic called the United States of America.

The Premier of the former Soviet Union Nikita Khrushchev made a number of predictions about America that we present herein to allow our readers to determine if they are coming true.

Nikita Khrushchev’s Predictions

Khrushchev,

“You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”

We have seen socialism spread across America since before the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. It began with the formation of the Intercollegiate Socialist Society which was a socialist student organization active from 1905 to 1921. The first slate of officers elected at the Sept. 1905 organizational meeting included the following: President: Jack London; First Vice President: Upton Sinclair; Second Vice President: Graham Phelps Stokes; Secretary: M.R. Holbrook; Treasurer: Rev. Owen Lovejoy; Executive Committee: Rev. George Willis Cooke, Morris Hillquit, Robert Hunter, Harry Laidler, Katherine M. Meserole, George H. Strobell. Of this group of socialist worthies, only Harry Laidler was actually a current college student.

This was the first gullibility of the American people—embracing the world-wide movement of “industrial democracy” known as socialism.

This was followed by Charles Emil Rothenberg, an American Marxist politician, who on September 1, 1919 founded and became head of the Communist Party USA.

In an article titled “Antonio Gramsci: the Godfather of Cultural Marxism” Bradley Thomas wrote:

There’s little debate that modern-day American universities, public education, mainstream media, Hollywood, and political advocacy groups are dominated by leftists. This is no accident, but part of a deliberate strategy to pave the way for communist revolution developed more than eight decades ago by an Italian political theorist named Antonio Gramsci. [Emphasis added]

Upon this foundation came the next inevitable step—the weakening of America’s economy.

The Weakening of America’s Economy

Nikita Khrushchev,

“We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within.”

To destroy America from within one must control the U.S. economy. This control of the economy began on December 23, 1913, when Democrat President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act into law—a decentralized central bank that balanced the competing interests of private banks and populist sentiment.

This was followed by The Social Security Act which was signed into law by Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 14, 1935. In addition to several provisions for general welfare, the Act created a social insurance program designed to pay retired workers age 65 or older a continuing income after retirement. It taxed every single America to provide money for a system. As a result of changes to Social Security enacted in 1983, benefits are now expected to be payable in full on a timely basis until 2037, when the trust fund reserves are projected to become exhausted.

This was followed by The Great Society which was a set of domestic programs in the United States launched by Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964–65. In a book titled Great Society: A New History published in 2019, Amity Shlaes noted,

“[J]ust as the 1960s forgot the failures of the 1930s, we today forget the failures of the 1960s.”

Shlaes’ detailed description and telling digression that traces the arc from the unbridled hopes of the early Sixties to the enormous administrative expansion of the “second New Deal” to the missteps in implementing it that became all too apparent in the Seventies.

This expansion of government was accelerated under the Obama, Obamacare’s take over of the entire U.S. healthcare system, and now the Biden administrations Build Back Better Agenda.

Our Grandchildren living under Socialism

Nikita Khrushchev,

I can prophecy that your grandchildren in America will live under socialism — Our firm conviction is that sooner or later Capitalism will give way to Socialism. Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you.

Today many Americans fear for their children and grandchildren. Socialism has become part and parcel of the indoctrination of our children and grandchildren from the public schools, colleges and universities, to woke companies, to the media and social media and now permeates our federal government including our military.

During a speech by titled The Rise of Wokeness in the U.S. Military U.S. Army Lieutenant General (Ret.) Thomas Spoehr wrote:

Let me give some examples of what I mean by wokeness.

In 2015, then Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus rejected out-of-hand a Marine Corps study concluding that gender-integrated combat formations did not move as quickly or shoot as accurately, and that women were twice as likely as men to suffer combat injuries. He rejected it because it did not comport with the Obama administration’s political agenda.

That same year the Department of Defense opened all combat jobs in the U.S. military to women, and Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter committed to “gender-neutral standards” to ensure that female servicemembers could meet the demanding rigors involved in qualifying for combat. Since then, the Army has been working for a decade to put in place the gender-neutral test promised by Carter. But after finding that women were not scoring as highly as men, and under fierce pressure from advocacy groups, the Army threw out the test. Now there is no test to determine whether any soldier can meet the fitness requirements for combat specialties.

In 2015, near the end of his second term, President Obama initiated a change to the Pentagon’s longstanding policy on transgender individuals in the military. Before that change could take effect, the incoming Trump administration put it on hold awaiting future study. Subsequent evidence presented to Secretary of Defense James Mattis—including the fact that transgender individuals suffering from gender dysphoria attempt suicide and experience severe anxiety at nine times the rate of the general population—raised legitimate concerns about their fitness for military service.

This led the Trump administration to impose reasonable restrictions on military service by those suffering gender dysphoria. But only hours after his inauguration in January 2021, President Biden signed an executive order that did away with these restrictions and opened military service to all transgender individuals. Since then, the Biden administration has decreed that active members of the military can take time off from their duties to obtain sex-change surgeries and all related hormones and drugs at taxpayer expense.

Along similar lines, the Biden administration has recently ended support for a longstanding policy prohibiting individuals infected with HIV from serving in combat zones. The policy had been based on sound science tied to the need for HIV medications and the danger of cross-infection through shared blood.

Physical fitness has long been a hallmark of the U.S. military. But in recent years, fitness standards have been progressively watered down in pursuit of the woke goal of “leveling the playing field.” The Army, for instance, recently lowered its minimum passing standards for pushups to an unimpressive total of ten and increased its minimum two-mile run time from 19 to 23 minutes. The new Space Force is considering doing away with periodic fitness testing altogether.

Back in 2016, Navy Secretary Mabus decreed that Navy sailors would no longer be known by traditional job titles such as “corpsman,” adopting instead new gender-neutral titles such as “medical technician.” The resulting blowback was so severe from enlisted sailors who cherished those historic titles that the Navy was forced to reverse the changes. But wokeness has a way of coming back, and last year the Navy released a training video to help sailors understand the proper way of using personal pronouns—a skill Americans have traditionally mastered in grade school. The video instructs servicemembers that they need to create a “safe space for everybody” by using “inclusive language”—for instance, saying “hey everybody” instead of “hey guys.” Can the return of gender-neutral job titles be far behind? 

The Bottom Line: Woke is Code for Socialism

Much of the emphasis of wokeness today is on promoting the idea that America is fatally flawed by systemic racism and white privilege. Our fighting men and women are required to sit through indoctrination programs, often with roots in the Marxist tenets of critical race theory, either by Pentagon diktat or through carelessness by senior leaders who delegate their command responsibilities to private Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion instructors.

Corporations (e.g. Disney, Apple, Facebook, CNN, etc.) have gone woke and by doing so are going broke. Hollywood is producing socialist (woke) propaganda films and TV series that we have reported on repeatedly.

Nikita Khrushchev said,

“I once said, ‘We will bury you,’ and I got into trouble with it. Of course we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you.

The push to go full communist is on and the American people are seeing it’s policies when they buy groceries, gasoline, clothing, homes and even baby formula.

Today Democrats care more about aborting babies, open borders, disarming law abiding citizens and climate change myths than building up traditional families, making people independent, and job creation. Building a strong military to protect and defend American from all enemies foreign and domestic is of little interest to Democrats. While Democrats promote diversity, inclusion and equity our enemies laugh at the U.S.

America is not being buried by the working class rather it is being buried by the political class from the school house to the White House!

Democrats and their allies are burying us! History is repeating itself.

Top 25 Quotes by Nikita Khrushchev 

Biden’s Border Policies Veer from Insane to Berserk

The Biden administration is closing gaps in the border wall in Arizona, despite Joe Biden’s promise he would not build “another foot” of Trump’s border wall.  Wouldn’t you love to know why Biden wants to build the wall, especially since Democrats have called the wall ‘racist’, making the Biden administration racist for building it?  I would like to know, too, but all we get out of the White House is gaslighting.  They’re not building the wall, the White House press secretary insists.  They’re ‘cleaning up a mess left by the Trump administration.’  If you can figure out what that means, let me know.

Building the wall represents an about-face for an administration that has instituted numerous policy changes to open the border, changes I’ve documented in previous commentaries.  The administration might be building the wall, but it’s still making policy changes to open the border at the same time, which makes absolutely no sense at all.   The administration just confirmed it will be giving identification cards to illegal aliens.  Border-jumpers should be detained and deported but, instead, the Biden administration is releasing them into the interior and now making it easier for them to travel by plane and access government benefits with a secure ID card. The administration’s recent announcement it will allow illegal aliens to apply for asylum online from anywhere in the world has been heavily criticized.  One Senator called it an ‘open invitation to Chinese spies to enter the U.S.’.

The consequences of the new online asylum system have yet to be seen, but the consequences of earlier policy changes are already visible, and they are ruinous.

The masses of unaccompanied children pouring across the border have led to contracts costing hundreds of millions of dollars for a facility to house some of them in North Carolina while they await resettlement.  The facility has rock climbing walls, an 8-lane swimming pool, mental health counseling, legal services – the works.  I remember that a similar facility considered by the Obama administration during a previous alien child surge was canceled due to public outrage.  Not this time.

Out of 30,000 catch-and-release aliens targeted to receive court summonses for failing to appear for immigration hearings, only 600 have been served.  Officers call the exercise a “complete waste of time.”  I call it a joke.

Federal air marshals had to be called in to help with the influx of illegal aliens at the border caused by Joe Biden’s open borders policies.  The marshals escort aliens from processing facilities into the custody of border agents for release into the interior.  Why authorities even bother with this step when the escort is for all of 50 yards is beyond me.

All this laxness has given rise to human smuggling operations inside the U.S.  Last week, ICE found 73 illegal aliens living in six homes operated by smugglers in a wealthy area of Washington, D.C.   It’s not clear who the cocaine found during the raid was for.

Building the wall in Arizona, while letting the alien invasion continue in Texas.  Releasing aliens into the interior with summonses not worth the paper they’re written on while giving them secure ID cards.  Continuing to tell the public the border is secure when obviously it is not – none of this makes any sense.   But if you expect rationality from wild-eyed left-wing ideologues who hate America with a passion, you’re not going to get it.   Who knows what the latest reversal is about, but it’s certainly not about admitting Trump was right, after all.

VIDEO: The God Gap — Hispanics going red?

TRANSCRIPT

The demographics of the Republican Party are shifting, and conservatives are torn on whether this is a gift or a curse.

Republicans are becoming more ethnically diverse, and Democrats are becoming whiter, with some experts crediting belief in God. In tonight’s In-Depth Report, we explore the “God gap” and what it means for the future of the GOP.

Since Donald Trump’s election in 2016, Republicans have gained ground with Hispanic voters. Joe Biden’s approval among Hispanics is at 19%. In 2020, he only received 65% of the Hispanic vote, a six point drop from 2012, when Obama received 71%.

Most attribute the Hispanic rejection of the Democratic Party to economic strife over rising costs for gas and groceries, and also inflation. But famed anti-Trumper and Atlantic contributor David French thinks it’s more about religion.

David French: “A politics focused on mobilizing by race or ethnicity will not reach them, especially when identity politics is paired with hard-left cultural positions and hostility for traditional religion.”

The numbers bear this out. A 2018 Pew Research poll found 21% of White Democrats are atheists. But for non-White Democrats, this number was only 5%. Meanwhile, White Republicans are more closely aligned with non-Whites on God, with 5% of White Republicans being atheists and the same for non-White Republicans.

French claims that “both parties are at a crossroads. There is time for secular progressives to understand that Christians are an indispensable element of the progressive coalition.” This God gap may explain the Hispanic exodus from the Democratic Party, as they are largely Catholic.

But not everyone is convinced their cultural Catholicism is a fix-all for Republican politics. French notes Hispanics still feel vilified by Republicans for supporting illegal aliens. “The hateful and fearful language around immigration causes too many Republican Christians to view Hispanic immigrants more as a political threat.”

But it’s not hate: Many Latino Republicans like Texas Congresswoman Mayra Flores are soft on immigration, proposing making it easier for more migrant workers to come in.

Mayra Flores: “Why not create a legal process so that good people, the ones that want to come here to work, try their best to create the American dream?”

Increases in work visas and a pro-amnesty platform for illegal aliens could alienate White Catholics and evangelicals, who overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump 2020. Whether or not Republicans will unify in the upcoming midterms remains unknown, as do the benefits of the rise of Latino Republicans nationwide.

VIDEO: Why We Insist on Getting it Wrong About the Muslim World

We refuse to see Muslims as they see themselves.


Much hope has been placed in an eventual normalization of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia.

On July 15th, President Biden travelled to Saudi Arabia in an attempt to help cement relations between the two countries and to find another source to lower the cost of gas for Americans before the November midterm elections. The Saudis were gracious enough to invite a group of Israeli journalists to cover the story.

One particular journalist, Gil Tamari, took it upon himself to enter Mecca, film what he saw there and then broadcast it to the world.

This one incident by one individual might potentially have soured the flowering of relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel. Why is it so difficult for those of us from Western democracies to understand the cultural, societal and theological contexts of other cultures? What is it about Islam that we fail to understand?

Biden’s TSA Becomes the Transportation False Security Administration

Illegal aliens are welcomed aboard airliners – using arrest warrants for ID.


The Biden Administration continues to implement policies that are not in the best interests of America or Americans.  Nowhere is this more apparent than the multifaceted immigration system.

Immigration is not a single issue, but a singular issue because it profoundly impacts nearly every challenge and threat that confronts America in this especially perilous era.

Even with the ongoing “crisis on the southern border” getting some attention by some news organizations, the immigration crisis involves far more than the unending tsunami of illegal aliens flooding into the United States from Mexico.

The frequently maligned Border Wall was never designed to keep people from entering the United States, only to make it more difficult of those who seek to enter to evade the vetting process we conduct at ports of entry to screen out aliens who would pose a threat to public health, public safety, national security and the jobs and wages of Americans.

The border wall does not block ports of entry only serves to funnel all people and commerce to ports of entry where the vetting process is conducted, guided by 8 U.S. Code § 1182.

In discussing the importance of the border wall I have frequently compared the wall on the border to the “cattle runs” that are employed at airports to guide passengers to the next available TSA (Transportation Security Administration) agent.  In using that comparison I have often rhetorically asked, “Would you get on an airplane if you saw your fellow passengers evading thet TSA officials?”  As you might expect, without exception the response was immediate and vehement.  All stated that there was no way in hell they would board such an airliner.

It turns out that the vetting process conducted by the TSA is not much better than the lunacy we are experiencing with the immigration system under the Biden Administration.

The only thing worse than no security is false security.

The TSA needs an additional word in its title, the Transportation False Security Administration (TFSA)!

As I have written in many of my articles, the Biden Administration has all but terminated the enforcement of our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States.  As I noted a long time ago during one of my first television appearances shortly after the terror attacks of 9/11, “No one would break into the amusement park if they could not get on the rides.”  The corollary is that “No one stays in the amusement park when they turn off the lights and shut down the rides.”

The Biden Administration has laid out the red carpet to the biggest “Amusement Park” in the world- the United States of America and has invited millions of illegal aliens to “come on down!”

This is actually the “Root Cause” for the unprecedented massive illegal immigration we are now witnessing.

While some of these illegal aliens are fleeing crime and poverty in their home countries- others may be fugitives from justice or are members of drug cartels, transnational gangs or terrorist organizations and therefore pose a threat.

Inexplicably the Biden Administration through its Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, and through its TSA (Transportation Security Administration) administrator is acting in direct opposition to letter and spirit of our immigration laws and has promulgated policies that are in direct conflict with the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony.

I hate say, “I told you so,” but on December 7, 2020 my article, Biden’s DHS: Department of Homeland Surrender: Alejandro Mayorkas, architect of DACA, picked by Biden to head DHS, was published, accurately predicting the disaster that now undermines our national security and public safety.

Recently members of congress turned to yet another Biden policy decision that not only makes no sense but undermines national security and public safety.  There is absolutely no “upside” to the administration’s policy of permitting illegal aliens to board airliners with their only form of “identification” being an administrative Warrant of Removal issued by DHS.  This lunacy was reported by Fox News on January 21, 2022, TSA confirms it lets illegal immigrants use arrest warrants as ID in airports.  The subtitle noted that: TSA said the document would be checked against CBP databases.

Before we go further, the obvious question is why is the Biden Administration doing this?  Where is the benefit to America or Americans?

On July 21, 2021, Fox News reported:  TSA chief says ‘under 1,000’ illegal immigrants have been allowed to board planes with warrants as ID.

Here is an unbelievable excerpt from that report that focuses on an exchange at a senate hearing between Republican Senator Josh Hawley and TSA (Transportation and Security Administration) Administrator David Pekoske on July 21, 2022:

(Senator) Hawley pushed the TSA chief on why he would allow illegal immigrants with such a warrant onto a flight at all.

“We arent looking at whether a person is legal or illegal in the country,” he said. “Our role is to make sure that people who may pose a risk to transportation that is significant enough to require enhanced screening or to not allow them to fly.”

“So your position is someone who is known to have violated the laws of the United States does not thereby need enhanced screening?” Hawley said.

“Sir, there are people who violate the laws of the United States every day who fly,” Pekoske responded. “We look for things related to transportation security.”

While Pekoske again stressed that the warrant is “the beginning of an identity verification process that follows” Hawley was not convinced.

“I think youre going to have a hard time explaining to folks who wait for all of this time in these lines, who subject themselves voluntarily to the restrictions you impose…that youre allowing illegal aliens with warrants for arrest to get on airplanes.”

Speaking from my 30 years of experience with the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service, many illegal aliens have no reliable documentary proof of their identities or even of their actual nationality.  The “CBP database” is virtually worthless where illegal aliens are concerned.

Arrest Warrants can be forged and do not do not meet the standards for documents that other travelers must provide to positively identify the persons carrying that document.

Think about the hundreds of thousands of so-called “get aways” who evaded the overwhelmed  Border Patrol.

For all of the nonsense about the administration addressing “root cause” of illegal immigration, the true Root Cause is the fact that the Biden administration. Is facilitating the entry of millions of illegal alines and then dispersing them around the United States.

As an INS agent I frequently arrested illegal aliens who either had no identity documents or had multiple identity documents in multiple false identities.  We were frequently left with no alternative but to issue them warrants in whatever name they claimed was their names.

Law violators frequently use false aliases as a way of deceiving law enforcement officials.  This is why law enforcement agencies invariably fingerprint those who are arrested in an effort to determine their true identities and to determine if they are fugitives from justice.

In my personal experience, aliens may have outstanding arrest warrants in many countries around the world that do not show up when we run their fingerprints.  Frequently the fingerprinting systems are not compatible from one country to another and because of corruption, many criminals in other countries can pay a relatively small fee to have their criminal records expunged and even enable them to purchase “Good Conduct Certificate” from the law enforcement officials of this other countries, even after they completed lengthy prison sentences after they were found guilty of committing serious violent crimes.

Meanwhile, Biden Administration Plans To Protect Immigration Fraudsters.

The official report, 9/11 and  Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, was authored by members of the 9/11 Commission staff- the federal agents and the attorneys, wrote about the findings of the Commission.

Here are a few excerpts that illustrate how dangerous the Biden administration’s policies are to America and Americans- once again raising the question  about the possible motivations of this administration.

Page 46 and 47 of this report noted:

By analyzing information available at the time, we identified numerous entry and embedding tactics associated with these earlier attacks in the United States.

The World Trade Center Bombing, February 1993. Three terrorists who were involved with the first World Trade Center bombing reportedly traveled on Saudi passports containing an indicator of possible terrorist affiliation. Three of the 9/11 hijackers also had passports containing this same possible indicator of terrorist affiliation.

In addition, Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the attack, and Ahmad Ajaj, who was able to direct aspects of the attack despite being in prison for using an altered passport, traveled under aliases using fraudulent documents. The two of them were found to possess five passports as well as numerous documents supporting their aliases: a Saudi passport showing signs of alteration, an Iraqi passport bought from a Pakistani official, a photo-substituted Swedish passport, a photo-substituted British passport, a Jordanian passport, identification cards, bank records, education records, and medical records.

Page 54 of that report- Under the title 3.2 Terrorist Travel Tactics by Plot,” included this excerpt that makes the above issues crystal clear:

Although there is evidence that some land and sea border entries (of terrorists) without inspection occurred, these conspirators mainly subverted the legal entry system by entering at airports.

In doing so, they relied on a wide variety of fraudulent documents, on aliases, and on government corruption. Because terrorist operations were not suicide missions in the early to mid-1990s, once in the U.S. terrorists and their supporters tried to get legal immigration status that would permit them to remain here, primarily by committing serial, or repeated, immigration fraud, by claiming political asylum, and by marrying Americans. Many of these tactics would remain largely unchanged and undetected throughout the 1990s and up to the 9/11 attack.

Thus, abuse of the immigration system and a lack of interior immigration enforcement were unwittingly working together to support terrorist activity. It would remain largely unknown, since no agency of the U.S. government analyzed terrorist travel patterns until after 9/11. This lack of attention meant that critical opportunities to disrupt terrorist travel and, therefore, deadly terrorist operations were missed.

Page 61 contained this passage:

Exploring the Link between Human Smugglers and Terrorists

In July 2001, the CIA warned of a possible link between human smugglers and terrorist groups, including Hamas, Hezbollah, and Egyptian Islamic Jihad.   Indeed, there is evidence to suggest that since 1999 human smugglers have facilitated the travel of terrorists associated with more than a dozen extremist groups.  With their global reach and connections to fraudulent document vendors and corrupt government officials, human smugglers clearly have the “credentials” necessary to aid terrorist travel.

Benjamin Franklin sagely noted “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

Under the Biden administration we have certainly compromised our freedoms- but as for our “security” we have officials whose titles include the word “security” but clearly, they could not care less about the security of our nation or our fellow citizens.
