A Border Threat So Taboo that Few Dare Speak of It

By Todd Bensman on February 2, 2021

Somewhere along the way after 9/11, the idea that Islamic extremist migrants might steal over the porous southern land border was wounded in the nation’s hyper-partisan cross-fire over all things immigration. Today, the notion of terrorist border infiltration is toe-tagged as fraudulent, xenophobic, and discreditably Trumpian, rendering it a taboo subject unworthy of serious contemplation.

But that circumstance — denialism preventing any sober consideration — occurs at a dangerous moment with the seating of President Joe Biden and an administration that has messaged its welcome of mass irregular migration over the southern border as an essential humanitarian value.

Read Todd Bensman's opinion piece in The Daily Wire arguing why the nation finds itself at a moment of elevated vulnerability to terrorist travelers who can and would eagerly steal over the southern border, just as they have throughout Europe.
