Republicans’ biggest security concerns about Syrian Muslim refugees gaining illegal access to the United States has been confirmed by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
President Obama and mainstream media have been hiding reports that Syrian Muslims have been crossing the Mexican border into the United States. The ones that border patrol have caught were not reported to the media out of fear it would give Republicans, and the American people more reason to fight Obama’s refugee agenda.
Breitbart News Texas exclusive report:
Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that eight Syrian illegal aliens attempted to enter Texas from Mexico in the Laredo Sector. The federal agents spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity, however, a local president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) confirmed that Laredo Border Patrol agents have been officially contacting the organization with concerns over reports from other federal agents about Syrians illegally entering the country in the Laredo Sector. The reports have caused a stir among the sector’s Border Patrol agents.
Breitbart Texas reported that the sources claimed that eight Syrians were apprehended on Monday, November 16, 2015. According to the sources, the Syrians were in two separate “family units” and were apprehended at the Juarez Lincoln Bridge in Laredo, Texas, also known officially as Port of Entry 1.
“Border Patrol agents who we represent have been contacting our organization to voice concerns about reports from other agents that Syrians crossed the U.S. border from Mexico in the Laredo Sector. Our agents have heard about Syrians being apprehended in the area from other federal agents,” Border Patrol agent and NBPC Local 2455 President Hector Garza told Breitbart Wednesday. “At this time, I cannot confirm or deny that Syrians have crossed, for security reasons.”
Agent Garza further stated that in matters as sensitive as Syrians crossing the border from Mexico, it would be highly unlikely that federal agencies would publicize it or inform a broad group of law enforcement. He did say that Local 2455 is taking the reports seriously and that they “will be issuing an officer safety bulletin advising Border Patrol agents to exercise extra precautions as they patrol the border.”
Breitbart Texas can confirm that a Syrian did attempt to enter the U.S. illegally through Texas in late September. The Syrian was caught using a passport that belonged to someone else and U.S. authorities decided against prosecuting anyone involved due to “circumstances.”
Republicans in the House and Senate, along with 15 state governors, have voiced strong opposition to President Obama’s plan to accept 10,000 Syrian migrants in 2016 and 100,000 from all countries in 2017. The American SAFE act was drafted by 15 House Republicans to cut off funding for Obama’s Syrian resettlement program, and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul plans to introduce a similar bill in the Senate.
Obama has threatened to veto any Republican-backed bill that interrupts his efforts to process migrants from the Middle East and North Africa.
Obama’s response to Republicans concern over amplified criticism was to promote the hastag #RefugeesWelcome on social media.
Speaking in Turkey on Monday, Obama said that the West ‘needed to open its heart to Muslim refugees, who after all were fleeing from terrorism in the Middle East to the safe and warm arms of the West.’
The only mention of Christians that are being slaughtered by the thousands was to say, “wanting to accept only Christian refugees from the Middle East is un-American and shameful!,” Watch the VIDEO HERE.
