Immigrant Terrorists

From the Irish Examiner:

Some immigrants used false documents to enter the United States, others let their legal visas expire once in the country. And at least 21 foreign nationals became naturalised US citizens before being charged or convicted as terrorists.

In all, at least 94 foreign-born visitors accused of terror activity between 1993 and 2004 exploited federal immigration laws to enter or remain in the United States, according to a study being released today.

Distributed by the Centre for Immigration Studies, an advocate for stricter immigration policies, the report provides newly-compiled data on US terror arrests to illustrate gaps in the nation’s border security, visa approval and immigration systems.

Meanwhile, the President is telling border state supporters that the federal government is going to do more to secure the southern border.
