Perry Says Terrorists Could Enter USA via Mexico


rick-perry2Gov. Rick Perry of Texas warned Thursday that militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria and other terrorist groups may have already slipped across the Mexican border.

Mr. Perry said there is “no clear evidence” that terrorists have entered the United States illegally across the southern border. But he argued that illegal immigration should be considered a national security issue as well as a social and economic problem, and as evidence he cited the increase in violent crimes committed by illegal immigrants.

“I think there is the obvious, great concern that – because of the condition of the border from the standpoint of it not being secure and us not knowing who is penetrating across – that individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be,” he said during a conference on border security and immigration at the Heritage Foundation.

  1. But our President is on vacation. We will just have to sit back until he is done….who cares about us? CAN’T postpone my golf….could I???

  2. lets take the 3.7 billion obama got to process the kids and hire more border patrol
    build fences and sign a law to allow the immediate deportation of these kids to discourage more illegals from coming
    cuz frankly there is nothing being done to stop thier coming over and who knows who is coming over

  3. He is right. Terrorists have entered the US through Mexico. The last ones were led by Pancho Villa, in 1916.

    This fool doesn’t understand that it is hard to get to Mexico from the Middle East — no airline flies such a route. It would be much easier for a Middle Eastern terrorist to get to Canada and then to slip over its completely undefended border with the United States. Or come to the US legally on tourist, business, or student visas through JFK!
