There were 8 Syrian nationals seized were illegally trying to enter into the United States from Mexico. This has led to increased concerns about our border security.
Breitbart cited two unnamed federal agents who said the Syrians were intercepted at the Juarez Lincoln Bridge in Laredo, Texas. While Border Patrol has yet to confirm this report, National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 President Hector Garza did confirm that he was also receiving similar reports from multiple agents.
“Border Patrol agents who we represent have been contacting our organization to voice concerns about reports from other agents that Syrians crossed the U.S. border from Mexico in the Laredo Sector,” he said. “Our agents have heard about Syrians being apprehended in the area from other federal agents. At this time, I cannot confirm or deny that Syrians have crossed, for security reasons.”
This comes not long after a UK report showed that a number of refugees were charged with making plans to carry out terror plots in the US.
Furthermore, the Conservative Tribune reported Wednesday on a poll that revealed that 13 percent of the 4.28 million displaced Syrian refugees held a favorable view of the terror group, and roughly a third of those had a “very favorable” view of it.
