CRUZ, SESSIONS DEMAND IMMIGRATION HISTORIES AFTER SAN BERNARDINO ATTACKS
In the wake of the Muslim terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, CA, which left 14 dead and 21 wounded, Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL) have demanded that the Obama administration release the immigration histories of the couple that committed the atrocities.
“In our struggle against terrorism,” the two senators wrote in a letter to the White House, “we are dealing with an enemy that has shown it is not only capable of bypassing U.S. screening, but of recruiting and radicalizing Muslim migrants after their entry to the United States. The recruitment of terrorists in the U.S. is not limited to adult migrants, but to their young children and to their U.S.-born children, which is why family immigration history is necessary to understand the nature of the threat.”
The two senators prepared their letter after CBS News reported that Tashfeen Malik passed the Department of Homeland Security’s “counterterrorism screening as part of her vetting” for a fiancee visa to the United States. Tashfeen Malik and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, perpetrated the San Bernardino attacks which left 14 dead and 21 wounded. Farook recently traveled to Saudi Arabia and also returned with his new wife, who entered the U.S. on a Pakistani passport and a fiancee visa. In addition, federal agents have discovered that Farook was in contact by phone and social media with people who had been the subjects of terrorism probes by the FBI.
Cruz and Sessions added in their letter that the Obama administration is still withholding immigration data on as many as 72 known terrorists.
Given the heinous attacks that left 14 dead and 21 wounded in San Bernardino, Legal Immigrants For America (LIFA) renews its urgent call for the United States to prohibit all immigration from Muslim countries on an immediate basis.
We are at war with Muslim terrorists right now. The United States did not allow any immigration by the Germans or Japanese during World War II, and it must not allow any further immigration by migrants trying to enter from Muslim countries today. What made sense seven decades ago makes just as much sense right now.
We are at war, and war is no time for compassion for the enemy. As we have seen in both the United States and France in recent days, compassion kills.
Please generously support LIFA as we work together with Senators Cruz and Sessions and other like-minded, patriotic politicians who want to release immigration histories and protect Americans!
