Alarm bells have been raised across the federal government since U.S. Intelligence officials discovered that more than a dozen Uzbek nationals seeking asylum at the southern border were allowed into the country. The migrants are said to have made their way into the country with the help of a smuggler with ties to ISIS, the infamous terrorist organization.
The FBI is investigating who these migrants are and if any of them are security risks.
"People that are smuggling them into this country, there's no guarantee what their ambition is -- whether or not they're ISIS wannabes or they're ISIS recruits or if they're just seeking refuge from the authoritarian regimes in Central Asia," notes Bob Maginnis, senior fellow for national security at Family Research Council. "But it's not a pleasant place, so you have to understand that."
He is bothered by the FBI's disorderly priorities.
"The FBI is too engaged in doing things other than this, [such as] chasing parents in school board meetings, chasing after so-called white supremacists that are in the military or elsewhere," Maginnis submits. "They ought to be focused on the border."
Instead, a lot of miscreants and dangerous people from Central Asia are being allowed into America.
"They're not going to be Judeo-Christian in their ideology; they're going to be Islamists infiltrating throughout this country and perhaps plotting our demise," the military strategist warns.
That is why he is "very concerned about it."
