“A number of immigrant terrorists were even approved for citizenship. Others are the U.S.-born children of foreign migrants whose presence in the country would not be possible but for the immigration of their parents.” Treason.

“Obama Admin Stonewalling Investigation Into 113 Terrorists Inside United States,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, January 11, 2016:

Leading senators on Monday petitioned multiple Obama administration agencies to stop stonewalling a congressional investigation into the immigration histories of at least 113 foreign-born individuals implicated in terrorist operations after legally entering the United States, according to a copy of the letters.

The latest investigation comes just days after the Washington Free Beacon disclosed that an additional 41 foreign-born individuals who legally entered the United States had been arrested for planning a number of terror attacks.

Sens. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) disclosed Monday that they had been pressuring the Obama administration for months to disclose the immigration histories of these foreign-born individuals implicated in terror plots.

Agencies including the Departments of State and Homeland Security have stonewalled these efforts, declining since mid-2015 to provide Congress additional information. This move has prompted speculation among lawmakers that the administration is withholding information to prevent the exposure of major gaps in the U.S. screening process for new immigrants.

“The American people are entitled to information on the immigration history of terrorists seeking to harm them,” Cruz and Sessions wrote to the secretaries of State and Homeland Security and the attorney general.

Similar requests for information issued sent in August and again in December have not been answered by the administration

The letter cites a recent Free Beacon report detailing that an additional 41 foreign-born individuals had been snagged on terrorism-related charges since 2014. The disclosure of these previously unknown accused terrorists brings the total number of foreigners brought up on terrorism charges to 113.

Sessions and Cruz note that at least 14 of those foreigners accused of terrorism were granted legal entrance to the United States as refugees.

“Many more came through other immigration programs,” they wrote. “A number of immigrant terrorists were even approved for citizenship. Others are the U.S.-born children of foreign migrants whose presence in the country would not be possible but for the immigration of their parents.”

Many of these recently implicated foreigners have been caught by authorities planning terrorist attacks on American soil, while others were found to be involved in efforts to provide funding and material to ISIS, according to an internal list of migrant terrorists codified by congressional sources and viewed by the Free Beacon.

Cruz and Sessions are requesting that the agencies in question fill out a chart that includes only partial information about the 113 accused terrorists.

A senior congressional aide familiar with the investigation said the soaring rate of immigration is taking a toll on the U.S. security establishment.

“The cost of high rates of Muslim immigration are clear: enormous security challenges combined with vast expenses to track and convict those here attempting to wound Americans,” the source said.

The letter comes amid a debate over immigration and an Obama administration plan to boost the number of refugees granted residence in the United States. Under the administration’s plan, an additional 170,000 new migrants from Muslim-majority countries will enter the country in 2016.

As these agencies continue to ignore requests for information, the senators blasted the Obama administration for “continuing to stonewall the request even after a follow-up letter was sent subsequent to the San Bernardino terrorist attack.”

The administration has still not provided senators further information about the immigration histories of the two attackers who went on a shooting spree late last year in San Bernardino, California.

After the attack, it was discovered that both had legally immigrated to the United States, despite expressing support on social media for ISIS.

Last week, the Justice Department indicted two Iraqi refugees living in the United States legally of conspiring to provide material support to ISIS.

Additionally, a Philadelphia police officer was ambushed by an assailant sporting “Muslim garb and wearing a mask,” according to local reports. It was later determined that the individual had pledged allegiance to ISIS.

The United States has issued 680,000 green cards to immigrants from Muslim-majority nations during the past five years.

UPDATE: 2:57 p.m. This piece had been updated to include additional statistics concerning immigration from Muslim-majority countries.

    Barack Hussein Obama is the worst traitor-mole in history. He makes Benedict Arnold look like an Eagle Scout. And I’m convinced his worst treason is yet to come in 2016.

    • farflung

      Matt, to me he is an enigma. How the public voted for him as Ms Geller vetted him in 2007, everything was out there. Ignored! I’m not even sure he is black. He was raised a Muslim, he said he would always side with the Muslims, etc. Now we have a gay supposed black, whose body is riddled with aids, and all these folks we have voted into congress have their tails between their legs and yet to step up to the plate to impeach this sorry excuse for a human being. I know Trump took a jab at Ms Geller, however we need both these folks now more than ever, for I fear many shall bleed for our nation as we raise this ship of state.

        “mulatto” it be.

    • Protest the speech

      Tonight is the State of the Union speech. If Obola told the truth he would say: “I’ve made good progress on my goal of destroying white Christian America and by the time I’m done this time next year the job is on schedule to be complete.”
      Republicans should protest Obola.
      I recommend early in the speech that a tea party guy yell: “3, 2, 1, NOW!” At that moment, every R should pull a ball of bacon out of his/her pocket and throw it at Obola and his Muslim guests.

      • karl59

        Obama’s guest at the State of the Union speech?
        A muslim community activist from New Jersey.
        Sure fits his pattern!

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    1 terrorist in Fort Hood murdered 13 people.
    2 terrorists in San Bernardino murdered 14 people
    2 terrorists in Boston murdered 4+ people.

    113 terrorists times 13 dead could result in 1469 dead.

    • Constitution189

      Correct sir and yet in most of these now including Philly, we are being provided a response to be led to believe this has nothing to do with terrorism.

    • ruthy k

      do numbers like the Paris attack and it wa-a-a-ay more. Lets also count the potential rapes too. Can anyone calculate this?

    • BrunoPBuhr

      You forgot Chattanooga!

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Responders to my initial post,…

      You are ALL correct. Bataclan raises the average.

      The American people are in danger thanks to Obama and his Vichy appeasement.

  • rambler

    This is why incompetent people need to be fired. Those who are not up for doing those jobs shouldn’t be paid for working to cover up their incompetence.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Can incompetent people decide who is incompetent?

      • rambler

        Nope…. but they think those trying to hold them accountable are the incompetent ones.

  • Constitution189

    Here is what is frustrating to me….I’m a solutions person and I feel I nor any of my fellow country members have any way or control to stop all of the stonewalling and lies with the current administration. Our congressmen and senators have not been successful..now what…we just have to go with it. The picture in the article says it all..middle finger American people. I will do what I want and there isn’t anything you can do about it. I will mock you and call you paranoid for my gun control views (mind you I don’t own one but his response was incredibly condescending as if the American people are well beneath him in intelligence) and him allowing CAIR members to his upcoming State of the Union are just a few examples.
    Help me out here American people..do we have any means of leverage. I’ve already tried contacting my local congressmen and senator and was met with a pre filled letter that made me feel just the way Obama did when he said we are paranoid.

    • atl slayer

      Yes we do, the tree of liberty needs.refreshing, then will be now,,,,,soon :|

    • Trump 2016!

      You are not alone in feeling frustrated. That is why Trump is so popular now. People want someone to cut the PC crap and make some changes. A very large number of Americans agree with the response by atl slayer below.

    • traci94

      I feel the same way as you – what can the average American person do?? I’ve written to my congressmen as well, to no avail. I agree with Trump 2016 – no wonder Trump is sooooo popular right now!

  • vercingetorix

    Off topic:
    1) Turkey: a syrian suicide-bomber has approached a german tourist group and has blown himself up in Istanbul/Turkey killing many people of whom 9 are german nationals!
    2) Puttgarden/Germany:2 muslim refugees attacked a jewish man beating him severly and stealing some of his belongings.
    And the list goes on……..

  • Mahou Shoujo

    That is a typical islamic defence, refuse to discuss anything, refuse to allow access to anything that might prove a point either way, and, when at the end of the rope, quote the qur’an then back to total silence. If anything is going to get discovered it will be without the help of the islamic clergy in the white mosque.

  • El Cid

    Except in Israel and Russia, the left has locked in every major government. Their complicity with Islam is all about keeping their positions of power, not protecting their own countries.

    ANY true leader would want to improve the security processes, not hinder them.

    • Shuali

      Please look carefully at Poland, Hungary and Czec Republic and you will see a different stance regarding immigration, Muslims, Sharia etc. Much more realistic!

  • ljm4

    another pic of him indicating his feelings with his hands. Right index finger=solidarity with islam Left middle finger=level of concern for Americans. Isn’t he special?
    He has been dancing with slander for years. When he takes 20 minutes to answer a simple question; he’s doing the slander slither. When he starts his taqiyya BS; he’s doing the slander slither.
    Watch the red piII briefings on utube or at secure freedom dot org..

  • Rocinante44

    when i am elected president, my first act will be to round up everyone who voted for obola and give them the choice of living the rest of their life as a non-voting slave or to be shipped to some muslim country and let them see how loving and generous the muslims are to refugees. our problem is internal…half the voters still love this guy. we need to get rid of them

    Why do the majority of jews support obama? Why did 1000 rabbis send a letter to congress urging congress to accept refugees? http://time.com/4135445/american-rabbis-syrian-refugee-letter/

    • olddog

      NUTS..they are TOTALLY NUTS!!!

      • Shuali

        S**t scared is the reality!

      • Judi

        In my local synagogue the Rabbi urged us to donate to the Syrian refugees stating that we were once refugees, etc. I don’t remember reading anything in the history books which tells of muslims donating to Jewish refugees. In fact they were instrumental in causing the refugees in the first place!!

        • olddog

          Agree 100% Judi..I have NEVER in my 70 years on this planet understood the thinking of the American Jewish folks..LIEberal beyond ALL REASON with indifference as to what the outcome is..Amazing..

    • Artemis

      Because they think if they play nice, the muzzies will warm up to them and not behead them.

      • RetiredNavyphotog

        Sort of like how the Nazis were sending them to a “resettlement” camp in the East?

  • traci94

    What a freakin’ traitor! I can only come to the conclusion that Obama WANTS terrorists in America to harm Americans. He should be tried and convicted of his traitorous actions.

    • Judi

      Of course he does. That was his aim from the get go.

  • Charles Martel

    Why are these two cabinet members not in contempt of Congress? Isn’t facilitating putting in danger American citizens be grounds for impeachment? Holder was in contempt and nothing happened? Why are these two senators sending letters that will continue being ignored, and do something concrete about it. The silence after the post St. Bernardino letter is nothing but treason: aiding and abetting the enemy. DO SOMETHING!!!

  • chris wolf

    obama is going to give his last scheduled State of the Union Address on the day that US Navy vessels and sailors are taken prisoner and being held “in custody” by Iran.
    And he will not even mention it.
    Treason.
    We’re told to expect an “unconventional” speech by obama, which beyond revealing yet again what a joker and baboon he is, but even more sickeningly the depths of cynicism and fraud he’s been capable of in his previous addresses, when he donned the guise of an American and parroted and mocked all our highest values and touchstones.

    It’s as good a day as any to arrest him.

    • betilu

      The speech was heard a room over from the TV because I cannot stomach to look at that critter…..and it was the same as usual. If you’ve heard one, you’ve heard all. They had some guest there—-and you know who they were.

  • hagustaman

    WHY DON’T ALL OF YOU WHITE PEOPLE HAVE A LITTLE RESPECT TO THE PRESIDENT, OR DO YOU STILL FEEL THE IRON CHAINS HANGING ON YOUR NECK LIKE YOUR GRAND-GRAND-GRAND-FATHER WHEN HE WAS DEPORTED TO AMERICA AS PRISONERS? OBAMA WAS LEGALLY ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE…IT MEANS THE VOICE OF PEOPLE…AND DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT VOX POPULI FOX DEI…IT MEANS VOICE OF PEOPLE IS VOICE OF GOD…..SO PLEASE DON’T MAKE GOD THE ALMIGHTY MAD AT YOU BY DEJECTING OBAMA’S SPIRIT

    • Judi

      IDIOT!!

    • Artemis

      We have no respect for obama because he has no respect for america and the laws that underlie it.

    • betilu

      Acorn was around when he was campaigning the 1st time and got every body and his brother to register. Actually some names of the dead were used, but that was change–and we have had to really get used to all these radical changes. I don’t see any Acorns running around this time getting people registered……so I have my doubts about the legal part.

    • RetiredNavyphotog

      Easy on the caps cowboy.

  • cdnmohamhater

    they must be saudis

  • Shafiq Islam

    Most Muslims I know think Obama is one of them.I don’t know what’s in his heart of what he does in private, of course, but he’s certainly a steadfast and loyal friend to them. Even his ostensibly anti-Muslim initiatives such as the Arab Spring and Ghaddafi’s overthrow have created space for the jihadis to thrive. Bush did the same, but out of stupidity and subservience to his Saudi masters rather than genuine sympathy for the Muslim religion.

    • Artemis

      All one has to do is watch the youtube video of obama speaking to his brethren in Dearborn, MI to know that he is their son and they are his people.

  • Politically Accurate

    I obtained an advance copy of tonight’s address to Congress, of which I share some excerpts below.

    In the name of Allah, the most compassionate and merciful.

    Seven years ago and, amazingly, four years later, you kuffars, or the useless idiots of Islamonazism that make up the Democratic Party, elected me to your highest office.

    In the seven years since I entered your White House, I have made it my mission to weaken this miserable country and its infidel people by ruining the economy with unsustainable debt, the weight of regulatory obstacles designed to re-engineer your country along Third World, socialist principles, punished all of you for your colonial crimes, emboldened your enemies, turned on all of your Allies, imported hundreds of thousands of Third World filth and, in particular, a Fifth Column of Islamonazi brothers and sisters, and suppressed many of your rights from your risible Constitution and Bill of Rights. I have enjoyed raping your Constitution every day just as my brothers rape your blonde, immoral and evil women in the UK, Germany, France, Canada, Australia and all your cursed dens of impurity and debauchery you laughably call the West.

    Kuffars, I am pleased to report that the State of your sham Union is on the verge of flatlining. In the year ahead, I will complete my mission by emptying your country’s prisons, pardoning all the Jihadi freedom fighters beginning with those left at Guantanamo, turning over Guantanamo to my brothers Fidel and Raul, borrowing hundreds of billions more from my comrades in Beijing (a special shout-out to my pals Mitch from Kentucky and John from Ohio for conveniently raising the debt limit) who now effectively own this building and the one my husband Manchelle and my daughters have defiled, as well as the rest of Goddamn America, as my mentor Jeremiah Wright would say.

    Allahu akbar, suckers.

    • Judi

      Good post.

      • Politically Accurate

        Thank you. Unfortunately, it’s too close to the truth. The America-hating, Islamonazi-loving, Constitution-raping, turd pile defiling the White House isn’t done . This last year of the American nightmare promises to be worse than the previous 7 combined.

        • Judi

          Yep, you said it. I dread to think.

  • Jenna

    Obama with his stupid f$$u finger again..he’s a symptom of the disease. He’s not even important just dirty evil, corrupt, obvious, not even trying to hide, but very proud of his evilness.

    What’s there to say? Unfortunately we’re probably not far from the end game..what can we do? Let’s organize let’s scream out loud to our dirty politicians and say you are liars we hate you we don’t believe a word out of your lying mouth.

    I’m a lawyer I can understand how being a liberal piece of crap is profitable,easy, logical even if you have no morals no scruples. Sure you can sound high and holy about helping those “poor Muslim refugees” score political points lie through your teeth while getting sheikhs contributions like Hillary and Clinton foundation etc the thing is it’s a total lie..lol not even a complex thing to disprove.

    So why I ask are we sitting around writing silly comments. If we don’t act now then it will be too late..lets organize demand closing down mosques, detention centers anything and everything we are at war..it wasn’t too long ago the Japanese were put in camps and somehow the dumb pc brigade breathed not a word. This threat is existential, real and quickly progressing.

  • Artemis

    I’ll say whatever I want about the psychopath mohammed, and to whomever I want.

    • Jenna

      They want to shut us down by screaming racism that way they don’t need to deal with the illogic, disgusting, pedophilic religion known as Islam. Not extreme Islam just plain old basic type that encourages drinking camel piss, raping babies type.

      Notice when confronted muzrats have no logical argument and cannot defend the tenets of Izslime..all they can do is shout and kill you preferably while screaming Allah Akbar.. That’s all they are capable of.

    Because a Moslems first loyalty is to shariah law, these people cannot be given US citizenship! It violates the oath of US citizenship.

    Prima facie treason. What is stopping us from removing Obama from the White House? A political elite waiting for the next election or even working on it rather than what is in the interest of the nation? yawn.
