ISIS and the Border
Conservative pundits are at the forefront of this campaign, allegedly to protect and inform us of this dire crisis.
In reality, they are making all of us more vulnerable by trying to politicize our deepest fears.
It is entirely possible that a terrorist group may come over our southern border.
They aren’t going to do so as you’re being led to believe, however.
They probably aren’t going to risk tromping through the desert like a desperate migrant hoping to survive the walk and elude the Border Patrol.
Migrants use that route because it’s the only one available to them.
Wealthy terrorist groups have much better options.
Let me give you an example…and tell you how most drugs and other contraband get into the U.S.
Laredo, TX is the largest landlocked port in America, the main route of commerce between the U.S. and Central America.
As many as ten thousand trucks per day cross the border there.
Five million trucks cross the whole border every year as well as thousands of freight cars pulled by trains.
To inspect every one of them would bring international commerce to a standstill.
The U.S actually did just that once in retaliation against Mexico and it lasted just a matter of hours before we lifted the inspections because of the international furor.
This…is where the border is “porous” and “open”… but the politicians aren’t going to interfere with commerce, nor are they going to talk about this on Fox News.
How many border inspectors do you have to bribe to allow a truck through?
One.. the one working the lane you’re in.
The one you already threatened or bribed and you made sure you were in their lane.
There are many such crossing points and bribed inspectors on the border.
My point is this…while the politicians have you staring in fear out into the desert sun, the terrorists are flying into Portland or Peoria or riding over the border in a truck full of tomatoes.
Think about these things…and refuse to be duped when the dangers are so real and true vigilance is called for.
