US Immigration welcomed another terrorist: Welcome to Portland
Allahu Akbar, another terrorist captured!
I recall reading a couple of years ago when a terrorist cell was operating and training people in Oregon. Oregon has a reputation for being kind and tolerant of diverse people. That is a good thing, but apparently their hospitality can be exploited.
What I don’t understand is why the Immigration Customs Enforcement agency continues to let people into America that really don’t offer anything of exceptional value. In fact, they introduce another layer of burden and trouble. Screening immigrants is an opportunity for quality control, not to mention controlling the flow of immigration consistent with our national needs for certain capabilities.
America has a limit on its capacity for immigration and assimilation. Mr. President, Director of Homeland Security, and US Congress, what is the aim of immigration? What is the strategy? What is the limit? How can you keep the terrorist nests from forming in the US? One answer, keep the birds out.
“FBI foils elaborate bomb plot in Oregon

Federal agents arrested an Oregon man intent on exploding a bomb and killing thousands of people at a nighttime Christmas tree lighting in Portland's central square, authorities said Saturday. The arrest culminated a sting in which the FBI worked extensively with the man and assembled the fake bomb that he twice tried to detonate Friday night.
The capture of Mohamed Osman Mohamud is the latest indication that the government is increasingly turning to undercover operatives to infiltrate extremist cells and fight what authorities call a wave of homegrown terrorism.
Agents arrested Mohamud moments after he tried to detonate a van he thought was packed with explosives in the crowded public square Friday night, the Justice Department said. As he was taken away, Mohamud, 19, kicked agents and screamed "Allahu Akbar!" - Arabic for "God is great,'' officials said. The bomb was an elaborate dud, assembled by FBI technicians.”
