Is it possible that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will infiltrate America through our southern border?
Texas Governor Rick Perry was asked that question today at the Heritage Foundation and he says they may already be here. Gasp!
PERRY: “Certainly there a great concern that the border between the United States and Mexico is un-secure, and we don’t know who’s using that. What I will share with you is that we’ve seen historic high levels of individuals from countries with terrorist ties over the course of the last months.” [...]
“There’s 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’s penetrating across, that individuals from ISIS and other terrorist states could be — and I think there’s a very real possibility that they may have already used that. We have no clear evidence of that. But your common sense tells you, when we’ve seen the number of criminal activities that have occurred — and I’m talking about the assault, the rapes, the murders by individuals that have come into this country illegally over the last five years — the idea that they would not be looking at and managing any of those types of tacts from that region is not a good place to be.”
We have no clear evidence of this, but here’s some speculative bullshit that will sound really sexy to right wing hatriots.
I would be remiss not to point out that the “criminal activities” that have occurred in recent years include the activities of Rick Perry.
