What a horrible image of anarchy we saw at the San Diego border crossing this week when three vans with an estimated 70 illegal aliens tried to crash their way through hundreds of innocent passengers in dozens of vehicles.

Illegal immigration and terrorism

by Kenneth Wallis: Before you read this story, remember that this guy could have already accessed welfare, healthcare, many colleges, and other taxpayer funded benefits.

From the Dallas Morning News, an illegal alien from Jordan was arrested in Italy, Texas for plotting to bomb a skyscraper after coming to the U.S. specifically to commit jihad.

When someone says that we need to legalize millions of illegals, you can tell them that the immigration system is unable to screen out terrorist. You can mention the bureaucracy in the legal immigration system, or you talk about the Fort Dix 6 (3 of whom were legalized), or you can talk about this story:

Roy Beck
By Roy Beck, Wednesday, September 23, 2009
