You don’t hear much about what’s going on behind the scenes to stop terrorists from coming over the border. Certainly, much of it is classified, because it might compromise sources and methods used to intercept plots. But the left wants you to think there isn’t much of a threat, that it’s just hype meant to justify strict border laws that keep out Hispanic illegal immigrants. They ridiculed President Trump for bringing it up, feigning professional outrage. They deny that possible terrorists, identified as “SIAs” or Special Interest Aliens, are crossing the southern border.
Fortunately, professor Todd Bensman, a counterintelligence expert who covered national security as a journalist, has written a book revealing this secret work, “America’s Covert Border War: The Untold Story of the Nation’s Battle to Prevent Jihadist Infiltration.” He asks why our political leadership on both sides of the aisle set in place an extensive counterterrorism enterprise on the southern border if there was no threat. Due to heightened security measures taken after 9/11, terrorists have turned to coming in through the U.S.-Mexico border instead of flying.

Once given asylum, instead of being grateful, some of the new immigrants begin plotting attacks against their host countries. Due to the EU’s lax migration laws, terrorists have been able to quickly move from country to country. Bensman cites so many terrorist attacks there your eyes glaze over;
