Does String of Incidents Show Donald Trump Right?

Evidence of the Obama Administration’s failure to secure our nation’s borders has surfaced in no fewer than three highly-publicized incidents involving illegal immigrants who, after being deported as many as five times, stand linked to the deaths of innocent Americans in 2015. Perhaps, Donald Trump is right, and the United States does have an immigration problem.

The first incident resulted in back-to-back murders the morning of January 31. Suspected of the murders is 31-year-old Victor Manuel Reyes, a man who was sentenced to 5 years for drug possession in 2010, according to Harris County, Texas, court records. Officials also said an immigration hold had been placed on Reyes, because he was here illegally.

The second incident took place June 20 and resulted in the death of Bob Barry Jr., 58, a beloved sportscaster in Oklahoma. Multiple news reports reveal Gustavo Castillo Gutierrez, 26, was charged with causing an accident without a valid driver’s license and drug possession on Tuesday. In addition, authorities confirmed Gutierrez had previously been deported three times.

The most-recent incident took place in San Francisco during the Independence Day weekend and resulted in the fatal shooting of Kathryn Steinle, 32. Accused of the seemingly-random murder is 45-year-old Francisco Sanchez, a man who was reportedly deported five times prior to the incident after settling in the “sanctuary city” by the bay.

Unfortunately, few members of Congress seem interested in immigration reforms and border security changes that might prevent atrocities like those outlined above. Same goes for the White House where President Barack Obama and his lackeys have blood on their hands.

Border Security Trumps Immigration Reform

Most news reports about President Barack Obama’s expected announcement about so-called immigration reform — that he will issue an executive order and open the illegal immigration floodgates — seem to be focusing on the impact five million new legalized residents will have on the already-tenuous job market for Americans already out of work. What they ignore is a far more serious subject, one the Washington Times reported on more than six and a half years ago.

Here’s a snippet of what the Times reported:

Senior al Qaeda leaders have diverted operatives from Iraq across the globe and are increasing preparations to strike the United States, senior intelligence officials told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence yesterday. They said the terrorists had plans to attack the White House as recently as 2006.

“Al Qaeda is improving the last key aspect of its ability to attack the U.S. — the identification, training and positioning of operatives for an attack in the homeland,” said Michael McConnell, director of national intelligence, which oversees all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies.

The prospect of terrorists entering the United States is much more troubling than any problems caused by a flood of impoverished and poorly-educated people from Mexico, South America and elsewhere. Why? Because terrorists can do immediate damage with dirty bombs, biological weapons and/or — insert audible gasp herenuclear weapons that can create far more serious problems than unemployment. As recently as one week ago, a report surfaced about a terrorist from Turkey being captured after crossing the border into Texas.

Of course, there have been a handful of articles in which news outlets like USA TODAY do the bidding for President Obama, quoting Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson as saying the president’s executive order will include measures to boost border security. Will he follow through and work with Congress to implement tough measures to thwart members of groups like al-Qaeda and its upstart cousins in the Islamic State (a.k.a., “ISIS” and “ISIL”)? Color me skeptical.

My point: Members of Congress need to hold the president accountable and do whatever it takes to ensure that the nation’s primary focus lies on securing the nation’s borders and preventing terrorists from entering. Only after that problem is solved should anyone in Washington pretend to deal honestly with immigration reform.
