While the Biden administration has earned the title as the most corrupt in this nation's history, as they have completely ceded control of our border to the drug cartels (among other things), Biden is hardly the first president to look the other way as dangerous criminals enter this country illegally.
In fact, Islamic terrorists have undoubtedly been setting up terror cells throughout this country for man years...
On November 12, 2015, officials in Honduras caught five so-called Syrian refugees who were all carrying fake Greek passports.
They were apparently headed to Guatemala, then into Mexico, with their final destination being the United States, crossing over our unprotected border.
The Syrian men were held late on Tuesday in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, on arrival from Costa Rica, and had been planning to head to the border with neighboring Guatemala. The passports had been doctored to replace the photographs with those of the Syrians, police said. “We received information from (fellow) police services that these five Syrians left Greece and passed through Turkey, Brazil, Argentina, and San Jose in Costa Rica before finally reaching Tegucigalpa,” said Anibal Baca, spokesman for Honduras’ police.
Officially, Mexico took in only 30 Syrian nationals between September and November 2015, according to El Finaciero.
Of course, large numbers of foreign nationals from such countries as China and various Muslim nations are regularly caught by the Border Patrol, entering this nation illegally from Mexico.
Given the lack of cooperation from the vastly corrupt government of Mexico on border security, it should come as no surprise that Islamic terrorists are entering this country daily.
In December 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) unsealed an indictment against well-known Lebanese drug trafficker and terrorist financier Ayman Joumaa. The indictment painted yet another frightening picture of terror group Hezbollah’s involvement on our southern border.
According to the DOJ, Joumaa shipped 85,000 kilograms of cocaine into the United States through the Mexican drug cartel known as Los Zetas. He also allegedly used various front companies as well as the Lebanese Canadian Bank (LCB) to launder more than $850 million in drug profits.
The indictment read:
During the course of the conspiracy, the defendant typically picked up between $2 [million] and $4 million at a time in Mexico City.
In 2016, the U.S. Treasury Department alleged that Joumaa has been using currency exchange houses in Lebanon to launder money and also designated the LCB as a “Primary Money Laundering Concern.” Joumaa had been financing Hezbollah’s terror operations for several years, according to U.S. officials.
Former DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart told reporters:
According to information from sources, his alleged drug and money laundering activities facilitated numerous global drug trafficking organizations, including the criminal activities of the Los Zetas Mexican drug cartel.
In a statement, U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride said: “Money fuels the drug trade, and Mr. Joumaa is alleged to be at the center of it all. Working with those producing the vast majority of the world’s cocaine to get their drugs safely into the hands of Mexican cartels, and then moving hundreds of millions in proceeds all around the world so the money can’t be traced back to them in Colombia.”
While this may have represented the first concrete proof of Hezbollah’s connection with a Mexican drug cartel, there has long been evidence to suggest that the cartels and Hezbollah have been working together, as U.S. prisons have been seeing tattoos on cartel operatives showing alignment to the terrorist organization.
In January 2011, a police officer was killed and three others wounded when a car bomb went off near the town of Tula, Hidalgo, which is about 50 miles north of Mexico City. Police believe Los Zetas Cartel was responsible for the attack. Police received an anonymous phone call claiming that a body was inside the car. The bomb detonated when they opened the trunk.
Police Commander Victor Pena died from his injuries at a local hospital.
According to Mayor Rodolfo Paredes, no body was found in the car. Police found a written message near the car, and believe the bombing was in retaliation for a recent shootout in which police officers killed two Zetas.
During summer 2010, there was a spate of car bombings, which began in Juarez. While the attacks were part of the ongoing Mexican drug war, it was the first time this tactic was used by the cartels. Many were remotely detonated by cell phones, a carbon copy of the type of bombings so often seen in the Middle East.
On July 6, 2010, the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Seyassah reported that Mexican authorities arrested a Mexican national who was working for Hezbollah, and that the Islamic terrorist group has been recruiting Mexicans with ties to Lebanon to set up terror cells along the border.
On June 23, 2010, then-Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) wrote a letter to then Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano, asking that her agency form a task force to investigate the possible connection between the cartels and Hezbollah.
Though Napolitano quickly (and publicly) claimed there “was no credible information on terrorist groups operating along our Southwest border,” she also offered Rep. Myrick a classified briefing on the matter, which would have precluded the Congresswoman from speaking out publicly on the issue...Myrick refused the briefing.
