Terrorism, up until a few years ago, was mostly something we saw and heard about in the news on television regarding other countries. And it seems like 9/11, the terrorist attack on our soil, has become but a distant memory.
However, most Americans do not realize that the threat for another terrorist attack has become very real for the United States. The reason the threat is growing, is thanks to the lax immigration and border control policies of former President Obama! Thanks to him, radical Islamic terrorists are infiltrating our borders.
Now, threats are pouring in daily as ISIS terrorists are training for open warfare on American soil, and the FBI is investigating the threats in all 50 states!
Via The Political Insider:
The Department of Homeland security (DHS) reports that the threats the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) are looking into are serious and threats have reached an all-time-high.
This is what happened after 8 years of Obama in the White House!
The FBI has “open terrorist investigations in all 50 states,” according to DHS Secretary John Kelly, who disclosed on Tuesday that there have been at least 37 “ISIS-linked plots to attack our country” since 2013, a number that shows no signs of diminishing.
Kelly, in his first wide-ranging public address on the threat of terrorism in America since taking office, warned that America’s borders remain wide-open and that there is evidence terror-linked individuals are exploiting these national security weaknesses and entering the United States.
“We don’t know their intentions,” Kelly said during an address at George Washington University. “We don’t know why they’re here or why they’re coming. We are completely blind to what they’re capable of.”

Terrorism also continues to sprout inside American communities across the country, according to Kelly, who said that in just the past year, there have been “36 homegrown terrorist cases in 18 states.”
“We’ve seen an unprecedented spike in homegrown terrorism,” Kelly disclosed. “These are the cases we know about—homegrown terrorism is notoriously difficult to predict and control.”
Terrorists in the United States are plotting attacks “every single day,” according to Kelly.
“I tell you, without exaggeration, they try to carry out this mission each and every single day and no one can tell you how to stop it. No one,” he said.
The United States, he continued, is “under attack” from a wide variety of bad actors, including “failed states, cyber-terrorists, vicious smugglers, and sadistic radicals.”
“And we are under attack every single day,” he said. “The threats are relentless.”
Those who slip over the border undetected, including criminals and potential radicalized terrorists, pose an unparalleled threat to the country.
“We don’t get to vet them,” Kelly said. “We don’t know their intentions. We don’t know they’re here. They slip into our country unnoticed, living among us, and we are completely blind as to what they are capable of.”
Hopefully with the fresh Trump administration, we can work on building our border wall, which would stop terrorist from entering our country. From there, between the FBI and DHS, we can hopefully send those away who plan to harm us, before it is too late!
