If we knew the immigrant population were ready to assimilate into our culture and society, and meant no harm to anyone, and would voluntarily live under the principles and letter of the Constitution, no problem, right?
Well, there’s a problem…
Here’s some 2014 data on the countries of origin. All ‘tolerant’ areas of the world, I’m sure:
Green Card Totals, FY09-FY14:
Pakistan (102K), Iraq (102K), Bangladesh (90K), Iran (85K), Egypt (56K), Somalia (37K), Uzbekistan (30K), Turkey (26K), Morocco (25K), Jordan (25K), Albania (24K), Afghanistan (21K), Lebanon (20K), Yemen (20K), Syria (18K), Indonesia (17K), Sudan (15K), Sierra Leone (12K), Guinea (9K), Senegal (8K), Saudi Arabia (9K), Algeria (8K), Kazakhstan (8K), Kuwait (6K), Gambia (6K), United Arab Emirates (5K), Azerbaijan (4K), Mali (4K), Burkina Faso (3K), Kyrgyzstan (3K), Kosovo (3K), Mauritania (3K), Tunisia (2K), Tajikistan (2K), Libya (2K), Turkmenistan (1K), Qatar (1K), Chad (1K)

Now, let’s, just for the heck of it, take a wild stab in the dark as to how many of that MILLION people wish the US ill will and are, as you read this, offering themselves up as ‘martyrs’ and training for that auspicious event.
Even if the number of so-called immigrants that can’t be vetted properly (according to US government sources) is only .5 to 1 percent, that’s between 500 and 1000 jihadis in waiting. Or 10 t0 20 per state, if averaged out.
That’s not a lot…until you start to think about the recent spate of Islamist attacks on US citizens in their own country, minding their own business. The refusal by many to assimilate is also an issue. Recent polls show 51% of American Muslims favor Sharia Law in the US over the Constitution. If that’s true, then the number of potential jihadi’s climbs WAY up in that MILLION immigrants.
DHS, by the way, stated that right wing extremism is more dangerous than ISIS to the US. Interesting. Anyone care to list all the ‘right wing’ attacks on Americans? Anyone care to list all the fundamental Islamist attacks on Americans on their own soil? At churches, on the street, in night clubs, in any venue?
It’s beyond the pale to think that any of the children who’ve immigrated have gone through any of the training as shown above, right?
It’s beyond the pale in these times that the government would be calling for the disarmament of US CITIZENS by further restricting the purchase of military look alike rifles and ammunition in the face of these attacks, in blatant violation of the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment in particular, right?
It’s beyond the pale to think that any of these ‘poor’ refugees (mostly military aged men) overrunning Europe and now being brought into the US against the wishes of the several States are going to assemble into ‘martyrdom cells’, right?
It’s beyond the pale to think that a majority of military age Muslim men that have and are emigrating to the US hate the West and all it stands for, as they have demonstrated in Europe, right? (Here’s a link to a story written May 29th as a recent example)
It’s beyond the pale to think that the DHS and Border Patrol have been picking up OTM’s (Other Than Mexicans) of Middle Eastern origin at the Southern border and then releasing them without vetting/processing, right?
Adding all this up, I’m amazed when the ‘normalcy bias’ kicks into high gear and the interest in learning to defend one’s family and friends remains low, because the following picture is what you’re volunteering for, if this last statement describes you.
Bottom line? You’re not training enough. You need more PT. This is not going to end well.
