Obama Administration Releases Illegal Aliens with Terror Ties, Blames It on a ‘Judge’

Family Security Matters

by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson gave some peculiar testimony in a House hearing Tuesday about two men tied to a designated terrorist organization who, he says, fled to Canada after “they were released by the judge” in an immigration hearing. Representative Jason Chaffetz pressed Secretary Johnson on the matter but appears either to have run out of time or not known what to ask. He and the committee should follow up promptly.

The story begins back in September when the pair, along with two other companions, were caught attempting to enter the United States through Mexico. It was quickly reported that four terrorists had tried to enter the country, igniting concerns that Islamic State cells were taking root here. Johnson quickly moved to ease those concerns by revealing that the four men were, in fact, Kurds associated with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

The PKK is a delicate subject for the Obama administration at the moment. In Iraq and Syria, the Kurds are fighting our enemy, the Islamic State, and PKK forces are among their most effective fighters. The PKK, however, is itself a designated terrorist organization under American law. The administration thus faces a problem similar to that which hamstrings its support for the so-called moderate Syrian opposition: aiding the enemy of our enemy is material support to terrorism – a serious federal crime. (As I’ve noted time and again, the “moderate” Syrian opposition is rife with anti-Western Muslim Brotherhood elements and its most effective fighters are al-Qaeda affiliates.)

At the time of their detention, Secretary Johnson vowed that DHS would deport the four Kurds. But at yesterday’s hearing, he admitted that two were still detained and, worse, the other two had been released and had fled to Canada. Regarding the latter pair, the secretary claimed that their release was:

State Dept. Doc Affirms JW’s Report on Obama Plan to Bring Foreign Ebola Patients to U.S.

JUDICIAL WATCH

A shocking government document outlining the Obama administration’s outrageous plan to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment has surfaced, confirming a story that Judicial Watch broke almost two weeks ago.

On October 17 JW reported that the administration was actively formulating a deal to admit foreign nationals infected with Ebola into the country for treatment. Specifically, the goal is to bring the patients into the country within the first days of diagnosis, according to JW’s sources. The plan includes special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.

More Welfare Jihad: US Tax Dollars Pay for US Mosque Security

Freedom Outpost
According to at least three surveys and studies, over 80% of the mosques in the US teach, preach and advance jihad. Fresh on the heels of Robert Spencer’s groundbreaking expose on the Oklahoma beheader’s mosque — revelations of jihad recruitment, hatred of the US and Israel and support of the caliphate, could our taxpayer dollars be worse spent?

In the wake of every jihad attack comes the second wave of Muslim groups warning of “islamophobia” and “backlash” — never rooted in reality, always the response to the horrors of Islamic teachings and texts.

“Anti-Muslim” hate crime is a fraction of the crimes against Jews, blacks and homosexuals. This is a myth. And in many of the instances of mosque “vandalism,” the authorities discover it is Muslims who committed these acts of faked hate. The media rarely reports on the follow-up story.

But using our hard-earned money for these supremacist savages is treasonous.

Not only are we building and renovating mosques across the world, but money that should be used to monitor these fortress of hate and subversion is being used to embolden and fund these jihad recruitment centers.

It illustrates something that has turned out to be true almost every time we have an instance of home grown Islamic terrorism. There have been over 23,000 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11, each one with the imprimatur of an Imam and a mosque.

Obama Defers Deportation of Liberians On Same Day TX Ebola Patient Enters Hospital

Gateway Pundit

Sept. 19 – Man leaves Liberia
Sept. 20 - Visitor arrives in Dallas, Texas. The city of Dallas says the patient moved to Dallas.
Sept. 24 – Symptoms begin
Sept. 26 – Man seeks care in Dallas but is sent home with antibiotics
Sept. 26 – Obama issues a Deferred Enforced Departure Memorandum for Liberians
Sept. 28 – Man is transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital by ambulance.
Oct. 1 – Man is isolated and in serious condition – organs are failing.

On Tuesday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed the first case of Ebola in the United States. A Liberian visitor to Dallas was transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital by ambulance on Sunday.

Barack Obama issued a presidential memorandum on September 26th to defer deportations of Liberians, the same day the Texas Ebola patient first visited the hospital.

MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY

SUBJECT: Deferred Enforced Departure for Liberians

Since 1991, the United States has provided safe haven for Liberians who were forced to flee their country as a result of armed conflict and widespread civil strife, in part through granting Temporary Protected Status (TPS). The armed conflict ended in 2003 and conditions improved such that TPS ended effective October 1, 2007. President Bush then deferred the enforced departure of the Liberians originally granted TPS. I extended that grant of Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) to September 30, 2014. I have determined that there are compelling foreign policy reasons to again extend DED to those Liberians presently residing in the United States under the existing grant of DED.

Pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct the foreign relations of the United States, I have determined that it is in the foreign policy interest of the United States to defer for 24 months the removal of any Liberian national, or person without nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia, who is present in the United States and who is under a grant of DED as of September 30, 2011. The grant of DED only applies to an individual who has continuously resided in the United States since October 1, 2002, except for Liberian nationals, or persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia:

(1) Who are ineligible for TPS for the reasons provided in section 244(c)(2)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1254a(c)(2)(B);

(2) Whose removal you determine is in the interest of the United States;

(3) Whose presence or activities in the United States the Secretary of State has reasonable grounds to believe would have potentially serious adverse foreign policy consequences for the United States;

(4) Who have voluntarily returned to Liberia or his or her country of last habitual residence outside the United States;

(5) Who were deported, excluded, or removed prior to the date of this memorandum; or

(6) Who are subject to extradition.

Accordingly, I direct you to take the necessary steps to implement for eligible Liberians:

(1) A deferral of enforced departure from the United States for 24 months from October 1, 2014; and

(2) Authorization for employment for 24 months from October 1, 2014.

UNREAL: This Popular Fox News Commentator is on Obama’s “Terror Watch List”

Conservative Tribune

Obama’s assault on the First Amendment continues as Fox News contributor Stephen Hayes has been placed on the Department of Homeland Security’s terrorist watch list. Not only does disagreeing with Obama make someone racist, it apparently also makes them a threat to national security.

BREAKING: Four Terrorists Captured on US Border on September 10 – Day Before 9-11

Gateway Pundit

Congressman Jason Chaffetz broke this shocking news Wednesday that four known terrorists were apprehended at the US border in Texas on September 10 – the day before the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks.

Chaffetz questioned Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on whether he is “aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists.”
Johnson dodged the question.

Tonight, Rep. Chaffetz told Megyn Kelly there were four terrorists arrested crossing the US border in Texas on September 10.

There were actually four individuals trying to cross through the Texas border, who were apprehended at two different stations, that do have ties to known terrorist organizations in the Middle East.

Via The Kelly File:

Breitbart has more on today’s exchange at the Homeland Security hearing:

During a House Homeland Security Committee hearing today focused on worldwide threats to America, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), asked DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson whether he is “aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists” who have attempted to enter the U.S. illegally during his tenure as homeland security chief. Johnson was sworn in as the fourth DHS secretary on December 23, 2013.

Rep. Chaffetz, who serves on the homeland security panel’s Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, clarified that he was referring to whether known terrorists, suspected terrorists, or individuals with ties to terrorist organizations have been arrested trying to come into the country illegally.

“Sitting here right now, no specific case comes to mind,” responded Johnson. “That doesn’t mean there is none.”

For the record… Jeh Johnson was a top Obama campaign donor before he was appointed Secretary of Homeland Security.

A Storm is Brewing on the Horizon – Will Obama Declare Martial Law Before 2016?

Freedom Outpost

If you’re like me you are paying attention to what is transpiring within our government. Many senior General officers are being fired (or “retired early”). Homeland Security, the Internal Revenue Service, the Social Security Administration and several other federal agencies are soliciting for hollow point ammunition on the pretext it will be used for “target practice.” Why does the Social Security Administration need hollow point ammo for target practice, you may ask? They don’t, but since the information about DHS soliciting for millions of rounds has some people alarmed, the government has decided to spread-out the purchases amongst other agencies as not to alarm the civilian population. This also coincides with foreign troops (Russian) practicing crowd control maneuvers on American soil. There has been an American “practice town” built for just this purpose. I could site more instances regarding FEMA camps and even the American 3rd Infantry Division’s new mission, but you get the idea, right?

Barack Hussein Obama is making power grabs more and more; and is openly circumventing the Congress to consolidate more power to the office of the president. This should have some people very alarmed.
