An organized terrorist threat from illegal aliens?
Trevor Loudon thinks that may not be far-fetched.
After leading open opposition to then-Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez in 2002, former Venezuelan lieutenant in the National Guard Jose Antonio Colina Pulido fled to the U.S. in 2003 to seek political asylum. He has been living in exile in the U.S. ever since. He has provided information to a number of U.S. agencies, including the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
According to Colina, current Venezuelan ruler Nicolas Maduro not only has been releasing convicted criminals from his prisons who’ve joined migrant caravans north to the U.S. but doing so specifically on the condition that they migrate north to cross into the U.S. Colina, who’s been posting on social media and in online videos, says that among this flow out of Venezuela are Venezuelan paramilitary groups who are not only penetrating the southwest U.S. border but coming in organized units, led by a unit commander.
Colina continues to obtain information from Venezuelan exiles, some among the migrant flows and some already in the U.S. According to their information, once in the U.S., some of these Venezuelan paramilitary groups have been organizing into cell structures. Colina fears that Maduro may intend to sow chaos and conflict among the Venezuelan exile communities in the U.S. as well as destabilize the U.S. itself, as long as the southern border remains open.
When we combine this new information with the understanding that since at least 2005 when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was President of Iran and Hugo Chavez was President of Venezuela, the Islamic Republic of Iran and its Lebanese Shi’ite terror proxy Hizballah have established extensive networks in Venezuela, the possible implications of this new reporting become very troubling.
There's more at the link.
We've known for years, thanks to isolated arrests on the border and intelligence gained from South American drug cartels, that individual terrorists and terror organizations have long smuggled their people into and out of the USA via our southern border. That's nothing new. However, if this is now being organized by a nation-state, Venezuela, that may well amount to an act of war. If so, what is the USA going to do about it?
This threat takes on an added dimension when you consider that, sooner or later, we're going to have to get rid of all the illegal aliens the Biden administration has permitted to flood across our border with Mexico, almost unchecked. We can't afford to keep them here. If the money is tight, those not entitled to it will have to be cut off. If we do that, they'll riot and turn to crime rather than go back home on their own; so we'll have to round them up and kick them out ourselves. If those who sent them are now organizing armed, terrorist-type resistance groups, that'll make the job much more difficult and far more dangerous, to ordinary civilians as well as to law enforcement and (if it comes to that) our armed forces.
One can only hope that the powers that be are doing something about this. Sadly, given the corruption and fecklessness of the Biden administration, that's probably a pipe-dream...
