They're coming to America
By Victor Sharpe

Neil Diamond's acclaimed hit song, "They're Coming to America," was his patriotic interpretation of historic and legal immigration into the United States. The powerful melody ends with an interpolation of the traditional and patriotic song, "My Country, Tis of Thee."

But now we have illegal aliens infiltrating our 1,989-mile-long southern border, and many are coming to the sound of a very different and horribly discordant melody, one often tinged with Islamic and Arabic overtones.

According to released data from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency as far back as 2014, an estimated 5,063 individuals from nations that harbor Islamic terrorists were arrested in that year alone trying to cross into America from Mexico. None of these were Mexicans, Guatemalans, or Hondurans; they were citizens from far-away nations consumed by militant Islam. It has been going on for many years and here are some of the figures from five years ago:

Afghanistan, where U.S. troops are still battling the Taliban, was the home of 70 people arrested at the southern frontier in 2013 alone.

Syria, birthplace of ISIS and a civil war ravaged nation, with some 400,000 dead, saw 72 of its nationals captured at our southern border.

Sudan, designated by the State Department as an official "state sponsor of terrorism," where Christians in the south have been the subject of massive genocide by the Arab Muslim north, was the starting point for 168 individuals who were stopped heading to the U.S.A.

Iran, the ultimate Islamic state sponsor of terrorism, busy trying to build atomic weapons, saw a total of 257 Iranians caught infiltrating our southern border in 2013.

Nigeria - headquarters of al-Qaeda offshoot Boko-Haram, which practices child-sex slavery and anti-Christian genocide, is the nation from which 492 people departed before getting caught on their way into America.

But these are only the culprits that were caught. Those that escaped capture and successfully infiltrated the U.S. may now well run into the thousands and constitute numerous sleeper cells waiting to unleash atrocities in our towns and cities in the name of Allah. Indeed, the past numbers quoted above are dwarfed by the current rate of infiltration.

The U.S. Transportation Safety Administration recognized the following nations as either state sponsors of terrorism or as countries of interest. They included Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and Yemen. This information was available in Table 34 of the 2013 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics. Every one of these states are Muslim with the exception of Nigeria, which remains torn in bloody conflict between the Muslim north and the mostly Christian south.

It can be assumed that many of the illegal aliens infiltrating our southern border from the suspect countries are not necessarily terrorists, but we know from bitter experience how much horror can be inflicted upon America by just a handful. 9/11 vividly illustrated the mass carnage that 19 such evildoers from Saudi Arabia could perpetrate and how it changed America for ever.

Congressman Ted Poe (R-TX) had told CBS's local Dallas Fort Worth affiliate some years ago that he believed ISIS would use Texas's southern border to enter the United States. At the time he said:

"Of course the way they would come to the United States would be through the porous border with Mexico. The drug cartels will bring people, including young children, into the country no matter who they are – for money ... It is well known that drug cartels are assisting Islamic terrorists in gaining entrance and crossing the border. In fact it's been going on for some time."

President Obama's sweeping plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens had been enacted by executive order, bypassing Congress and considered by many to be an illegal act. As Obama had chillingly said on attaining the presidency: "elections have consequences."

Obama pushed forward his 10-part plan, which included a deportation reprieve, known as "deferred action," for illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as children, Those provisions gave some 5 million illegal aliens already in the U.S. the right to stay and work. Liberals, liars and lefties call them the "dreamers."

So-called 'progressives' loved the move by Obama, seeing it as bringing in people who will vote Democrat and perhaps destroy any chance of Republicans ever again gaining a majority in Congress, let alone seeing another conservative Republican President in office. The Left loves it as it also affirms that other alarming promise of Barack Hussein Obama that he would "transform America."

Never was an American president more contemptuous of the United States than Obama or acted in a manner that revealed itself to be a clear and present danger to America's very survival.

But Donald J. Trump is now our president and is driving the loony Left into a seething maelstrom of incandescent frustration. We need look no further than the irrational and disgusting outbursts towards the First Lady than that of the likes of Peter Fonda and other "celebrities" along with unfunny comedians, ad nauseam. Or how about the appalling encouragement of mob violence spewing from the mouth of Maxine Waters who called for harassment and intimidation of President Trump's cabinet members whenever they are seen in public.

Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who was recently attacked by a mob of Democrats while she was at a restaurant, reported that: "From October 2017 to this February, we have seen a staggering 315% increase in illegal aliens, fraudulently using children to pose as family units to gain entry into the country."

And a source told The Daily Caller that some of the so-called "family units" that have been "broken up" after crossing the southern border aren't actually families but illegal aliens posing with children in an attempt to gain asylum in the United States.

Meanwhile, threats to America's very survival must be prevented at all costs. Muslim immigrants who come to America, but nevertheless embrace Islamic Sharia law over the Constitution and laws of the United States remain a threat, just as they have become in Western Europe and the United Kingdom.

President Trump seeks to apply our already existing immigration laws, seal our border and return to the model of legal immigration whereby new Americans enthusiastically embrace the Constitution and take part fully in American life as proud fellow citizens. We pray that he succeeds.
