The report also pointed out that sanctuary laws have prevented state and local law enforcement agencies from working with ICE which would help remove illegals who posed threats from the country.
According to a report from an organization that focuses on the problems with immigration, both legal and illegal, more than 10,000 illegal immigrants in the United States come from nations designated as terror sponsors.
As The Washington Examiner reports, “The Immigration Reform Law Institute(IRLI) revealed Friday that it has received documents under the Freedom of Information Act that show that the illegals have either been ordered deported or have pending final orders of removal, but are still in the U.S.”
IRLI reported, “In response to an IRLI Freedom of Information Act request, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) provided records that showed that as of June 2018, there were over 10,000 non-detained illegal aliens on ICE’s National Docket from Iran, Syria, Sudan, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea). Iran led the pack with over 6,000 or 61 percent of their citizens with removal orders followed by Syria with 20 percent, Sudan with 18 percent, and North Korea with less than a percent.”
The report quoted ICE Director Thomas Homan expressing his concern, asserting, “My biggest concern isn't how many terrorists have been arrested entering the country illegally, but how many got through? How many did Border Patrol not catch? That's what Americans should be thinking about.”
