Immigrants Make Up 73% Of Terror Convictions

Talk about jobs Americans won’t do! A new government report shows that 73 percent of those convicted of terrorism charges are immigrants, almost all from Islamic countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Yet the politicians don’t care and only want to discuss further opening our borders. Perhaps if DOJ and DHS had titled the report with a curse word, it would have gained more attention in the media and in Congress.

Pursuant to President Trump’s March 6, 2017, executive order, DOJ and DHS prepared a report detailing, among other things, the correlation between terrorism and immigration. The report found that at least 402, or 73 percent, of the 549 individuals convicted of international terrorism-related charges from September 11, 2001, through 2016 were verified as foreign-born.

Information on the immigration history of the other 27 percent was not fully available at the time of the report, which means many more might also be immigrants. Also, it’s likely that almost all of the remainder who were native-born were from families who emigrated from the Middle East fairly recently, such as the Orlando shooter (Omar Mateen) and the San Bernardino attacker (Syed Rizwan Farook).

Furthermore, the report reveals that there have been 1,716 removals of aliens with national security concerns since 9/11.
