There is already plenty of evidence to support locking-down the southern border with Mexico and only allowing carefully vetted persons entry. We just got more reason to do so.
There are policies in this country that clearly say who can and who cannot enter the United States for the sake of the legal citizens. This should be obvious. If it isn’t, then the recent apprehension of a smuggler should settle the case once and for all.
Once you mention words like “smuggling” and Mexico, drugs immediately come to mind. However, another kind of smuggling is underway as we speak. It involves the smuggling of potential terrorists and violent criminals into our country, and somebody just got caught.
Here is proof that President Donald Trump is absolutely right about the need to close the southern border.
“Sharafat Ali Khan, 32, pleaded guilty in a D.C. federal court Wednesday to one count of conspiracy to smuggle undocumented migrants into the U.S. for profit. The Washington Times reported that he will be sentenced this summer and could get up to 46 months in prison, though a lesser sentence is likely.”
Now, what do we know about those he has been smuggling in the U.S.?
“Court documents revealed the complexity of Kahn’s operation, which included moving illegal immigrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Peru and other countries through Brazil to Central America and eventually to Mexico before they would cross the U.S. southern border, Breitbart reported. For some, the journey took as long as nine months.”
This is precisely what we have been warning about. A travel ban is obviously not enough to stop people from terrorist-infested nations crossing our borders. These people are not stupid. They will find another door to get through if one closes. Manly, these entries are via South and Central American countries and from Mexico straight to the U.S.
Luckily, one smuggler of potential terrorists has been put out of business. And this guy had the gall to express the hope that after serving his prison sentence, that he might be able to remain in the U.S., as though serving a prison term was a meritorious act that somehow qualified him for citizenship, or at least permission to remain as an alien.
District Judge Walton did not tak this lightly. “‘That’s not part of the agreement,’ Walton said, having Khan sign paperwork promising to assist in his own deportation once his sentence is completed.”
