Hans: The following people are to be released from their captors: In Northern Ireland, the seven members of the New Provo Front. In Canada, the five imprisoned leaders of Liberte de Quebec. In Sri Lanka, the nine members of the Asian Dawn movement...
John McClane: [listening on the radio] What the f***?
Karl: [mouthing silently] Asian Dawn?
Hans: [covers the radio] I read about them in Time magazine.
In 2006 Congress passed the Secure Fence Act and it was signed into law that October by George W. Bush. The fence was to be built including infra-red cameras on poles to assist border patrol. The money was budgeted for the project. The project was started but in the 6 years under Obama to continue the building of the fence has been ignored. For the last couple of years there have been several warnings from members of our own intelligence of people threatening the U.S. have been making their way into this country through the porous Mexican border. They have reported the border patrol has apprehended a few but the truth of the matter there are thousands of people making their way into this country undetected.
If anything should have been learned from 9/11 it is that our intelligence agencies be able to share information with one another and that our visa program be reformed. Under Obama the number of visas being issued into this country have soared. And recently it was reported that there are hundreds of those who are "questionable" and a possible threat are among us on expired visas that the government has lost track of.
Last week it was reported that citizens of this country that our government was well aware of for months, had joined ISIS in Syria/Iraq. Instead of pulling their passports they allowed them to return to this country. Now they tell us they are under surveillance.
Last week it was reported soldiers from Afghanistan and all over were here in the US to be trained at our military facilities. Five Afghanistan soldiers were reported to have gone AWOL. The government issued a statement claiming there was no threat as these soldiers were all well vetted. They were found trying to get across the border into Canada.
All the above examples put the American people at great risk unnecessarily due to feckless people in charge and their asinine thinking that lacks common sense.
Yeah V.....at least a hundred they said. Although a Democrat was citing 40 Americans that have fought for ISIS.
Why American Jihadists Returning To The US Aren't Arrested Immediately

On September 22nd, Obama administration officials confirmed that the FBI is monitoring Americans who have returned to the US after fighting alongside the militant Islamist group ISIS. An official speaking to reporters at the White House said the National Counterterrorism Center estimates that more than 100 Americans were fighting for ISIS and other terrorist groups such as al-Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda affiliate. Last week, New York Democratic congressman Tim Bishop said in a speech outside of Congress that up to 40 fighters had returned to the US from the ISIS ranks, but that the organization didn't yet pose a threat to national security. US officials quickly dismissed the figure.
Gottlieb wouldn't speculate as to the administration's motivations in revealing the presence of former ISIS fighters in the US. But as a blogger at Hot Air notes, this week's announcement doesn't make much sense if it came in the course of an ongoing surveillance effort: "The revelation that the FBI is conducting an ongoing investigation into suspected American jihadist fighters who have returned to the United States would seem to compromise that investigation."
