Donald Trump’s talk of “extreme vetting” of Muslim immigrants may give comfort to those worried about the dangers of Islamic terrorism and Hillary’s Clinton promise to increase the number of these migrants brought to U.S. soil.
But the Obama administration is already presiding over a massive rush of Muslim refugees from war-torn nations into the United States, including tens of thousands of these questionably vetted migrants in 2016 alone.

The U.S. has allowed in 28,957 Muslim refugees so far this year alone, according to a Pew analysis of State Department data released Tuesday. That’s almost half of the roughly 63,000 refugees who have entered the country since the fiscal year began on Oct. 1, 2015. According to Pew, this is the highest number of Muslim refugees the U.S. has admitted since 2002.
Every recent Islamic terrorist attack on American soil was carried out by a Muslim immigrant or the child of Muslim immigrants.
Astonishingly, more than half of those Muslim refugees came from the terrorist hot spots of Syria and Somalia. The State Department also permitted the entry of more than 6,000 Iraqis and almost 2,000 Afghanis.
In May 2016, NBC news examined leaked ISIS files and “identified at least 15 American citizens” who had traveled to the Middle East to fight for the Islamic State. Of course, while the politically correct cretins at NBC insisted that these traitorous terrorists “fit no particular pattern,” 10 of the 12 whose identities NBC was able to verify were immigrants or the children of immigrants.
Rasel Raihan and his sister Zakia Nasrin emigrated to America from Bangladesh when they were five and seven respectively. Jaffrey Khan, Nasrin’s husband who joined ISIS with his wife and step-brother, was the son of Pakistani immigrants.
Talmeezur Rahman, another American ISIS fighter identified by NBC, was born in India and raised in Kuwait, as was Omar Kattan, born to Syrian parents. There was also Ridwan al-Haymar, from Morocco originally, and Erius Alliu, from Albania.
NBC also identified three Somali-Americans from Minnesota who left the country to join ISIS — Hanad Abdullahi Mohallim, Abdi Nur, and Yusuf Jama. In fact, the Somali community seems to be a particular hotbed of radicalism.
Dozens of Somali-Americans from Minnesota have joined or sought to join ISIS, according to federal authorities. Hanad Mustafe Musse, Guled Ali Omar, Abdirizak Warsame, Abdullahi Yusuf, Mohamed Farah, Hamza Ahmed, Yusra Ismail, Abdirahman Daud, and Adnan Farah are just some of them.

Unfortunately the same type of radical cancer infecting the Somali community in America has spread beyond that community — Douglas McAuthur McCain, a black American, and Troy Kastigar, of Anishinabe Native American background, were two best friends from Minnesota inspired by radical Somalis in their midst to convert to Islam and eventually join ISIS. They both died fighting in Syria.
But radical immigrants or the children of immigrants — or Americans radicalized by immigrants or the children of immigrants — leaving the country to die in Syria or Iraq is not the worst case scenario. The worst case scenario is that they don’t leave and decide to kill innocent Americans instead.
Every recent Islamic terrorist attack on American soil was carried out by a Muslim immigrant or the child of Muslim immigrants. Sayed Rizwan Farook, one of the perpetrators of the San Bernardino attack, was the son of Pakistani immigrants. His accomplice, Tashfeen Malik, was a Pakistani immigrant herself.
The perpetrator of the Chattanooga shootings, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, was a Kuwaiti-born immigrant of Palestinian-Jordanian extraction. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter, was born in Virginia to Palestinian parents. Omar Mateen, the Orlando shooter, was born to Afghan immigrant parents.
Of course, America’s problem of imported radicalism pales in comparison — for now — to the threat in Europe, which has allowed far higher numbers of migrants from radicalized regions of the Muslim world.
On Tuesday, radical British cleric Anjem Choudary, born to Pakistani immigrants in the U.K., was found guilty on terrorism charges for inviting support for ISIS in a series of lectures released on YouTube. It is estimated at least 500 British jihadis who fled the U.K. to join ISIS are linked to Choudary’s efforts.
