Liberals were outraged when Donald Trump issued a travel ban against seven Muslim-majority countries. However, according to a new report nationalists from those seven countries have participated in ongoing terrorist plots against the United States:

A Senate Judiciary Committee report last year found that of the 390 foreign nationals arrested on terrorist-related charges since the Sept. 11 attacks, 67 come from the countries listed in the travel ban.

The seven countries listed on the travel ban include Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and Syria. Of those, Somalia is the largest threat to U.S. national security — and would-be terrorists are taking advantage of our porous southern border:

A subcommittee hearing last year examined findings by the Texas Department of Public Safety on a Somali caught trying to cross into the U.S. who said he had been trained for a suicide bombing but wanted to quit al-Shabab.

Another al-Shabab-affiliated Somali, Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2011 on charges of helping to move an unknown number of suspected militants into the U.S. through the southern border.

The Obama administration Justice Department in 2010 investigated a massive human trafficking operation that involved the movement of 268 Somalis through Latin America for eventual entry into the U.S. The probe found that they were traveling with Cuban visas, allowing them to transit through Mexico and several other Latin American countries in hopes of coming to the U.S.

The Cuban government said two of its consular officers in Kenya who issued the visas were fired.

Joseph Humire, executive director of the Center for a Secure Free Society and an analyst on Islamic terrorism, said the evidence makes it clear that the government “may need to look more closely at Latin America as a possible staging area and transit point.”

Indeed, a shocking CNN Spanish documentary broadcast this month revealed that Venezuelan embassies sell black market passports for $15,000 each that permit unimpeded travel throughout Latin America, Asia, and Europe. And the corruption runs all the way to the top of the government:

Tareck El Aissami, the new Venezuelan vice president who was the target of unprecedented Treasury Department sanctions because of drug trafficking charges last week, reportedly issued 173 Venezuelan passports to Syrians, Iraqis and others listed in the ban when he was interior minister.

The case for Trump’s wall is looking stronger than ever.

    The terrorist win when you run an hide from them even if they never come to this country. By making all Muslims terrorist you are in fact creating more persons who can be easily swayed into radicalism.
    A bunch of uneducated religious haters who are afraid of your own shadow, but afraid of another religion more, when only the radicals have done any bad things.

    • Spoko

      When you are up against a “religion” that teaches it’s people to hate and even kill non-believers, it’s time to be afraid.
      You dumb ass!

        I do suppose you said it all, about how much you know of the Muslim religion, the part you speak of is only the Radical element of which we have many of in this country and not Muslims but as you would say ordinary Americans. They are called HATE groups, like the ones Trump has let out of the bag. How can you judge persons you do not know the first thing about only BS you read on Political webb sites. I lived in Muslim Countries along with a lot of other Americans at the invitation of the US Government, and know that the Muslims in the majority are no different than the Christians who they live with in those countries. You say they teach their people to hate and even kill non-believers, that might be so with the radicals but not the ordinary Muslim, and apparently some one is telling you to Hate Muslims because they do not believe as you, the same was true in this country until the Constitution put an end to it, by making this a multiple religion country, where no law can be made based on religion.
        Your fears are based on BS spread by other haters. Why is what you say not true with all the Muslims who have lived in his country since before its founding and all the Christians who have lived in the Muslim countries for thousands of years.
        I would not say you are dumb I would just say you are miss-informed to support the hate groups who miss-informed you.

    Ah, demonrats embrace islame (intentional misspelling) to what avail? All for a few votes? Newsflash: muslimes will kill apathetic demonrats as quickly as any other American. Focus your energy toward being a good American instead of supporting islame and muslimes.
