Following the executive orders on immigration signed by President Trump, the left vilified the president. They consistently accuse him of being racist and hateful.
President Trump argued that the orders including a temporary ban on immigration and refugees were necessary in order to ensure that adequate vetting procedures were put in place so that those who seek to harm us were not inadvertently let in with refugees and other immigrants.
According to Angry Patriot Movement, NBC News has “confirmed that 80,000 ISIS terrorists are hiding among refugees in an area between Jordan and Syria.”
This is precisely what President Trump warned about when he issued the executive orders temporarily banning immigration and refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
NBC’s own headline asserts that ISIS infiltrated the refugee camp at the border between the two countries.
NBC reports that refugees are being “preyed upon by the very ISIS gunmen and suicide bombers they fled their homelands to escape.”
The refugee camp is located in a demilitarized zone in an area described as a “no man’s land along the border linking Syria and Jordan.”
The helicopter pilot who flew the NBC crew near the area refused to fly over it for fear of being shot down by ISIS gunmen.
Brig. Gen. Sami Kafawin of the Jordanian army told NBC News that ISIS militants in the camp “have whole weapons systems…small arms, RPGs, anti-aircraft.”
“They consider the camp a safe haven,” Kafawin added. “We consider it an imminent threat.” He went on to say that there are daily gun battles inside the camp.
The refugee camp emerged in the area when Jordan closed its border to refugees from Syria. Jordan reportedly closed the border following an ISIS suicide bombing at a military base less than a mile from the refugee camp.
Since that time, the UN has been the primary source of aid, food and supplies to the area. Their access is becoming increasingly more limited as the ISIS threat grows.
No matter how much the Left yells and screams about Trump’s hatred, the truth is that he was right.
What is happening in Syria and Jordan is a perfect example of how ISIS will exploit the refugee crisis to gain access where it would otherwise be inaccessible.
In this case, ISIS now has a stronghold in another country. Thankfully, we have a president who is committed to preventing such a crisis on our borders.
