There are 58,000 foreign student visa holders who’ve violated their visas, and of those at least 6,000 foreign students are missing in the United States and have been determined by Homeland Security to be “of heightened concern.” That’s at least 6,000 potential terrorists in our midst. How many of them are from ISIS or Al-Qaeda?

Don’t forget that all of these visa violators would get amnesty under the proposals on which Barack Obama is considering taking executive action after the November elections. Also, don’t forget that Congress enacted law to computer track all of these student visa holders before 2000. But Republican Senator Spencer Abraham (Michigan) and Congressman Darrell Issa a/k/a “Jihad Darrell” (California)–both of them Arabs doing the bidding of Muslims–stopped the program in its tracks, with Abraham starving the program and refusing to fund it and Issa strongly opposing it. It bears noting that Abraham’s key staffer on the Senate Immigration Committee at all relevant times was Ann Coulter–yup, the same chick who pretends to be a hawk on immigration today but never was when it counted and she was in a key position to do something about it. And, as I noted on this site in 2011, the Obama Administration expanded the number of foreign students it refused to track.
9/11 hijacker Hani Hanjour, who flew the plane that hit the Pentagon, was here on a student visa, but he never ever attended. Yet, he showed phony paperwork that indicated he attended class at a school in Oakland, California, where he claimed to be enrolled in ESL (English as a Second Language) courses. But, despite 3,000 American lives lost on that day, these scams continue unfettered. And, like I said, all of these visa scammers would be rewarded with amnesty under Obama’s post-November plans.
Even before 9/11 and ever since, I’ve highlighted many, many instances of Muslim foreign students in the U.S. who’ve gone missing for years and some of whom have turned up in what appear to be tests of the system and dry runs for terrorist attacks, such as this missing Saudi student who terrorized a Madison, Wisconsin hotel. And I’ve detailed the story of hundreds of Muslim aliens from Al-Qaeda splinter group Al-Shabab, who obtained green cards and citizenship through fraud, and whom Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) can’t find and has never located. I’ve also written about schools that ran visa scams bringing foreigners here who never went to school and had no classroom experiences whatsoever, just like 9/11 pilot of death Hanjour.
That’s not to mention the California student who “attended class” and took tests for money, posing as mostly Middle Eastern, Muslim foreign students (and he even posed as female foreign students). ICE never found a lot of the student visa violators whose identities he assumed for money, while they disappeared into the great American abyss. Don’t forget, also, that in 2006, the FBI began “Project Strike Back,” an investigation into foreign student visa violators with ties to terrorism, who bilked federal financial aid programs to finance terrorism. The investigation started with much fanfare, but it was all for show and the FBI quickly abandoned it.
As I’ve asked many, many times over the years, why on earth are we considering troops on the ground over there (and why did we have thousands of troops on the ground over there for years) if we won’t fight to secure our borders over here? Now we see, as indicated in the scary report below, that the U.S. government continues to grant visas to foreign students going to schools that have a documented record of visa fraud, including beauty and massage schools. What exactly is the reason we are in desperate need of foreigners to come here to learn cosmetology and Shiatsu massage?
The Department of Homeland Security has lost track of more than 6,000 foreign nationals who entered the United States on student visas, overstayed their welcome, and essentially vanished — exploiting a security gap that was supposed to be fixed after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. “My greatest concern is that they could be doing anything,” said Peter Edge, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official who oversees investigations into visa violators. “Some of them could be here to do us harm.” Read the rest of this entry »
