The March 2017 issue of Judicial Watch’s pamphlet “Verdict” includes the following statements: “… Earlier this year, Judicial Watch obtained State Department documents showing that for more than a decade the U.S. government has known that ‘Arab extremists’ are entering the country through Mexico … classified as Special Interest Aliens (SIA). … Once in the U.S., the SIAs wait for pick-up in the area …” (near El Paso, Texas).

It seems inconceivable to me that the U.S. State Department has apparently turned a blind eye to that practice for years and, according to that same Judicial Watch pamphlet, there are an unknown number of “Islamic terrorists” (Judicial Watch’s term) near the U.S. southern border waiting for the order to attack.

Construction of a wall along the border should begin as soon as possible to stem the flow of drugs and potential terrorists through the sieve that is now called a border.
