While the Obama regime has been busy opening up the floodgates of the southern border to anyone who chooses to come in, they have also failed to police the notorious visa overstays. That is the method of access which was determined to have been exploited by those responsible for carrying out the terrorist attacks of 9/11, 2001.
The Obama regime is deliberately dismantling our security and flooding this country with foreigners of every description, many of which have intentions of doing us harm. They are not simply stupid, they are treacherous.
The report highlights how one of the top recommendation of the 9/11 commission was to revamp and clean up the student visa system. In spite of that urgent warning, nothing has been done. Senator Jeff Sessions describes that failing as a matter of national security.
DHS, the agency supposedly responsible for safeguarding our nation, is actively involved, through the Obama operative Jeh Johnson, in gutting our security protections and leaving us vulnerable to attack from a variety of sources.
ICE issued a pathetic defense of the indefensible, saying, â€œAny insinuation that ICE is not actively investigating visa overstay cases with links to potential links to national security and public safety is false. The agency has made numerous improvements to visa security since 9/11.â€
Their defensive argument is false. Investigating cases is much different from protection and enforcement. DHS and ICE leadership has together created a situation where enforcement is a thing of the past and only those identified as possible terrorists receive scrutiny. All other illegal aliens who have managed to escape the â€œpotential link to national securityâ€ label are free to roam about as they choose.
Itâ€™s much the same line of thought as Hussein Obama holding meetings on ISIS for months with his â€œnational security advisorsâ€ and describing that process as having a strategy.
The system is a joke, as is our Department of Homeland Security under this regime. The schools, which in addition to universities, include institutions instructing in beauty, massage, hair-braiding, tennis, golf and shoeing horses, are responsible for student oversight and reporting.
The State Department is completely outside the loop, as are DHS and ICE. The report cites numerous examples of schools not doing the governmentâ€™s job of policing the visa program.
Homeland Security and ICE seem content to play catch-up after the fact.
Megyn Kelly points out that Obama has been telling us in recent days that there is no immediate threat to the homeland. She quotes from a joint op-ed posted by Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron in which they take a shot at their critics, saying, â€œFirst, those who want to adopt an isolationist approach misunderstand the nature of security in the 21st century.â€ Within the same document, they contradict themselves to a degree, saying, â€œDevelopments in other parts of the world, particularly in Iraq and Syria, threaten our security at home.â€
Kelly says, â€œCongressman, my head is going to explode, which is it? They are a threat to the homeland or they are not?â€ Congressman King says they are a real threat and enumerates the different reasons why and the different varieties of terrorists.
The dismissive tone of Obamaâ€™s comments, that this community organizer turned leader somehow understands security or any other issue better than the American people is absurd. Heâ€™s in over his head, he canâ€™t handle the job, and we, the American people are going to be the ones who pay the price for his ineptitude and the ignorance of our fellow Americans who bought his line of bolognaâ€¦twice.
