We live in a strange period of human history where statements of objective truth are often labeled racist and the one making them branded a “bigot.” It’s become so bad, that even reading aloud numbers from an excel spreadsheet complied by the FBI is now considered a racist act by large swaths of the lobotomized public. Such is the case when one correctly points out that blacks in America commit a vastly disproportionate number of violent crimes (https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/htus8008.pdf). Even without inferring or insinuating anything further from that data, a simple statement is all that’s required to send most leftists to the hospital with symptoms of myocardial infarction.
To add to that list of unspeakable truths, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alongside the Department of Justice (DOJ) has just released a report to be filed in the “things everyone knew but were afraid to say” drawer. The report, which examines terrorism convictions in the United States from after September 11th, concludes that the vast majority of individuals involved in international terrorism on America soil were foreign nationals. The findings, which will surprise nobody who’s been awake and sober for the last two decades will likely feel like a sudden onset of testicular cancer for most open border advocates on either side of the aisle. We have been told over and over than immigration and terrorism have nothing to do with one another and that to question the possibility of people using the immigration system for nefarious purposes is tantamount to bigotry of the highest order. The report states:
According to a list maintained by DOJ’s National Security Division, at least 549 individuals were convicted of international terrorism-related charges in U.S. federal courts between September 11, 2001, and December 31, 2016. An analysis conducted by DHS determined that approximately 73 percent (402 of these 549 individuals) were foreign-born. Breaking down the 549 individuals by citizenship status at the time of their respective convictions reveals that:
254 were not U.S. citizens
148 were foreign-born, naturalized and received U.S. citizenship
147 were U.S. citizens by birth
As the immigration fight heats up between Republicans and Democrats it’s time for people to start standing up and acknowledging these facts, which are backed up evidence, even if they’re uncomfortable. Truth is a defence, all immigrants do not have American interests at heart and certain regions are more to blame than others. The DHS needs to take this a step further and release a detailed report on exactly which immigration programs were used to facilitate entry into the United States for these 402 individuals so that changes can be made and more novel ideas like the travel ban implemented. It’s time for data and evidence to take precedence over feelings and non-nonsensical labels.
