Remember when nineteen Islamic fundamentalists hijacked four airliners and took out the two towers of the World Trade Center and part of the Pentagon? Remember when it was only through the bravery of passengers on United flight 93 that a likely attack on the U.S. Capitol was averted?

Remember when those attacks killed nearly 3,000 people on September 11, 2001, and has caused countless deaths afterward due to 9/11-related illness? 

Well buckle up because due to Biden’s open border policies, the United States is far more vulnerable than we were on September 10, 2001. That reality hit home this week when six Russian nationals with terror ties to ISIS were arrested in a coordinated sting operation across three of our largest cities–Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia, The New York Post reported. 

The Post reported that two ICE sources revealed that six individuals tied to ISIS-K who hail from Tajikistan were arrested over the last week after receiving information from the FBI warning the agency. Two others associated with the group were also arrested after being under surveillance “for several months” by a multi-agency Joint Terrorism Task Force, according to NBC News. 

Included in the investigation was a wiretap where the suspects were talking about bombs, the sources said.

“Remember the Boston Marathon [bombing]? I’m afraid something like that might happen again, or worse,” one of the sources told The Post.

Sources say the target subject to the wiretap had been released by authorities at the southern border, so-called “parole,” with a court date set for next year. However it has now been discovered that he has ties to ISIS, the sources said. 

A joint statement released by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI told The Post: “Over the last few days, ICE agents arrested several non-citizens pursuant to immigration authorities. 

“The actions were carried out in close coordination with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. The individuals arrested are detained in ICE custody pending removal proceedings…the FBI and DHS will continue working around the clock with our partners to identify, investigate, and disrupt potential threats to national security.” 

Meanwhile, Fox News reported that all suspects had crossed the US-Mexico border and that initial vetting “didn’t turn up any negative information” tied to the group. Clearly, the vetting process is lacking. 

NBC’s sources said that at least two of the suspects crossed into the US in spring 2023, and one used the government-provided CBP One app to enter. The arrests came after FBI Director Christopher Wray in April warned lawmakers about possible ISIS plots being planned for the homeland and the group’s potential for exploiting the porous southern border. 

Last week, Biden announced an executive order which was touted as “controlling” the border, however information came forth late last week that border agents in the San Diego Sector have been told to release illegal aliens from at least 100 countries into the U.S., as reported by Law Enforcement Today and numerous other outlets. 

In his remarks to Congress, Wray said that a possible “coordinated attack” could take place in the United States along the lines of an ISIS-K attack at a concert hall in Moscow–also carried out by citizens of Tajikistan–that killed 145 and wounded hundreds more.

“Our most immediate concern has been that individuals or small groups will draw twisted inspiration from the events in the Middle East to carry out attacks here at home,” Wray told a House Appropriations subcommittee. 

“But now, increasingly concerning is the potential for a coordinated attack here in the homeland, akin to the ISIS-K attack we saw at the Russia concert hall a couple weeks ago.” 

ISIS-K references a region which includes portions of Iran, Turkmenistan, and Afghanistan, and is an extreme offshoot of the Islamic State, founded in 2014, The Post reported. 

The terror group has primarily concentrated its terrorist activities on Russia, however a number of Western leaders warned it has the ability to launch attacks in Europe and the United States. 

Only a month before his appearance in front of the House subcommittee, Wray told the Senate Intelligence Committee about a human smuggling operation at the southern border with ties to ISIS-affiliated groups. 

“I want to be a bit careful how far I can go in open session, but there is a particular network that, where some of the overseas facilitators of the smuggling network have ISIS ties that we’re very concerned about and that we’ve been spending [an] enormous amount of effort with our partners investigating,” Wray said in response to a question from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). 

The number of illegals apprehended at the southern border with suspected terrorist ties has exploded in the past few years, jumping from 11 in FY 2017-2020, when Trump was president, to 362 between FY 2021-2024, according to federal data. 

Despite that, Biden claimed at a state visit in Paris that “climate change” is “the only existential threat” to humanity, Fox News reported

It’s not a bug, it’s a feature…


Exactly what the Obama/Biden task team want!


Country's have borders for a reason


Just to throw out there. I have worked the border when people where actually held accountable for doing their jobs correctly, unlike now where they are fired if they even complain about not being able to do their jobs. The number of "catches" are far, FAR exceeded by those that get through. Ask yourself why they are patting themselves on the back for this catch when it is just a drop in the bucket as to what has already came in?
