Earlier this year a top ranking Homeland Security official acknowledged that Mexican drug cartels were helping ISIS sneak across the southern border to scope out targets for terrorist attacks.
ISIS operative Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir has reportedly been training militants near the US border near Ciudad Juarez for the past year.
Those are very good and creepy points. Star for you!

I honestly don't see how anyone can be for a more open immigration policy or against securing our borders. Let's say 5 members of ISIS cross the border per month, That's not an unreasonable number, compared to the total number of illegals that cross. Sneaking in, linking up, establishing cells and just maybe the Cartels supply them with weapons once they get here. Then they spread out, pick targets and wait. Maybe a few malls, airports, sporting events.....In just a few months, they have enough people to do some serious damage.
Now, if I can sit here and think of that just off the top of my head, think of what they can do when they have months to prepare.

Unfortunately this will only surprise those who trust government to protect them.
Good thing Arizona and Texas are the majority of the border, couple of states with a lot of patriotic gun-owning people.

I am quite certain that you did not intend irony in your reply to the statement that we Americans have terrorists running our country...I think you simply misread the poster's words. But damn that was hilarious:
"Maybe so, but they are known to be terrorists".
That's awesome lol..much needed comedic relief, albeit accidental.
