We’re very lucky that an alert, courageous Circuit City employee turned in the Fort Dix Six terrorists. They might have killed many at the Army-Navy football game, as they’d once planned. Or they might have shot “as many soldiers as possible” at Fort Dix, because pizza delivery men are let into military installations far too easily.
Or at least three of them might have been deported long ago if the Federal CLEAR Act legislation was passed by Congress and enacted despite the heavy and successful lobbying against it by Arab and Islamist groups. The CLEAR Act would require all state and local law enforcement to ask about and check the immigration status of all parties that they stop. Since they check our arrest records, outstanding warrants, etc. when they stop us, police checking our immigration status would seem just as easy. And it is. If only they had the mechanism to do so.
But the three Duka men who are ethnic Albanians living here illegally were never checked and deported because, as FOX News reports, they operated in “sanctuary cities.” Do you think that’s by accident? Not a chance. Islamic terrorists and illegal aliens know about sanctuary cities, and they purposefully locate themselves there so they can continue their terror plotting unfettered. They laugh at us and the sanctuaryists.
It almost worked for these guys, but for the brave Circuit City tipster. More from FOX News:
Three brothers charged in the alleged Fort Dix terror plot have been living illegally in the U.S. for more than 23 years and were accepted as Americans by neighbors and friends who had no idea they would scheme to attack military bases and slaughter GIs.
A federal law enforcement source confirmed to FOX News that the three ‚Äî Dritan “Anthony” or “Tony” Duka, 28; Shain Duka, 26; and Eljvir “Elvis” Duka, 23 ‚Äî also accumulated 19 traffic citations, but because they operated in “sanctuary cites,” where law enforcement does not routinely report illegal immigrants to homeland security, none of the tickets raised red flags.
The brothers entered the United States near Brownsville, Texas, in 1984, the source said, which would put their ages at 1 to 6 when they crossed the border.
The source said there is no record of them entering by way of a regular border crossing, so they are investigating whether they were smuggled into the country.
So much for the claim–often made by liberals and open borders fans–that terrorists never enter the U.S. through the Southern border.
