Our Unsecured Southern Border: Leaving America Open To Another 9/11?

Next year, we’re going to be 10 years out from 9/11. We know, without question, that there are terrorists out there who desperately want to come to this country and murder as many people as possible.:  We go through ridiculously inconvenient security measures at the airports. We have no-fly lists. We have instituted incredibly controversial laws, like the Patriot Act, to safeguard our security. We’ve even fought two wars that at least in part, were driven by the idea that it was better to fight the terrorists “over there” instead of “over here.”

Yet and still, the:  federal government has yet to get serious about securing our borders. Why? Well, there are liberals who view illegal immigrants as : future Democratic voters, liberal Hispanic groups that view illegals as future supporters, and crooked businesses that pay off lawmakers with campaign contributions to make sure that their flow of cheap labor isn’t stopped, and dumb Republicans who believe it’s more important to appeal to Hispanics by being pro-illegal immigration than to do what’s best for the country.

Unfortunately, the refusal of the:  federal:  government to do its job has given the terrorists an opening to kill more Americans. Some of them are trying to take advantage of that opening:

The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com.

The warning follows an indictment unsealed this month in Texas federal court that accuses a Somali man in Texas of running a “large-scale smuggling enterprise” responsible for bringing hundreds of Somalis from Brazil through South America and eventually across the Mexican border. Many of the illegal immigrants, who court records say were given fake IDs, are alleged to have ties to other now-defunct Somalian terror organizations that have merged with active organizations like Al Shabaab, al-Barakat and Al-Ittihad Al-Islami.

In 2008, the U.S. government designated Al Shabaab a terrorist organization. Al Shabaab has said its priority is to impose Sharia, or Islamic law, on Somalia; the group has aligned itself with Al Qaeda and has made statements about its intent to harm the United States.

We know that leaving our border unsecured could lead to the next 9/11. We know how to fix the problem. We’ve had plenty of time to do it. The people in charge have simply chosen not do it. Why? Because they’d rather see thousands of dead Americans than risk cutting off the flow of illegals. It’s a damn disgrace and the American people shouldn’t continue to tolerate it.
