(VitalNews.org) – The Biden administration has been pursuing an open-border policy on the southern border in all but name, allowing hundreds of thousands of unvetted illegal alien migrants from Central and South America to overwhelm Border Patrol defenses, while at the same time starving the Border Patrol of the resources and manpower needed to keep the surge at bay. Now the chickens are coming home to roost.
As many other Western countries have found, the waves of illegal immigration are not just comprised of war-weary refugees fleeing conflict zones, or asylum seekers fearing political persecution in their countries of origin. An estimated 84 percent of illegal migrants fall into the category of “economic migrants” – bad actors who want to take advantage of the thriving black market – and inevitably, there are amongst them some migrants who are intent on destabilizing their host countries with terror and destruction.
A recent poll has found that two-thirds of Americans are “worried” or “extremely worried” by the prospect of Middle Eastern terrorists attempting to pull off another 9/11-type attack, and almost half of them identify the US/Mexico border as a serious weakness that enemies will seek to exploit. A further 20 percent think that as nuclear weapons have proliferated, countries like Iran will seek to infiltrate the US in order to detonate nuclear bombs.
The survey found that Evangelical Christians were specifically more concerned than those of other faiths, or of those Americans who did not have a particular religious affiliation. Muslims, on the other hand, were more likely to downplay the hypothetical doomsday scenario posed by the survey, with 76 percent saying such an attack was “unlikely” or “very unlikely” and that ordinary Americans should just go about their business as usual without unduly worrying about terrorist attacks.
The poll, from McLaughlin & Associates, did not disclose its methodology and did not indicate the number of people surveyed or the potential margin of error.
