Doofus Alert: Dem Wants to Replace Terrorism Subcommittee With...Town Hall by Beth Baumann The new Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committees, Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), admitted he plans to get rid of the Subcommittee on Terrorism and use those resources to launch a Subcommittee on Investigating President Donald Trump.“We just thought, if we’re going to do something relevant in this era where Congress is going to reassert itself, where there are so many questionable activities of this Administration vis-à-vis foreign policy, that it made sense to have this," Engel told The New Yorker.

San Francisco Chronicle by Kevin Fagan A federal magistrate judge has recommended that the terrorism convictions that have kept a Lodi man in federal prison since 2006 be overturned on the grounds that his lawyer didn’t adequately represent him.Hamid Hayat was 23 when — in a case that riveted the nation’s attention — a federal jury convicted him of training at a terrorist camp in his family’s homeland of Pakistan and returning to the United States to lie in wait for orders to kill Americans as a jihadi.

The Epoch Times The porous southwest border—where Border Patrol says it catches just 35 to 40 percent of illegal crossers—poses a major security threat By Charlotte Cuthbertson WASHINGTON—Every day, an average of 10 known or suspected terrorists are prevented from entering the United States, according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). These are individuals flagged on a U.S. terror watch list; most are encountered at airports or even while still overseas as they apply for a visa.On top of that, 3,000 “special-interest” aliens were apprehended at the southwest border last year, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said on Jan. 4.Special-interest aliens (SIAs) are labeled as such for their travel patterns and behavior. They hail from dozens of countries in the Middle East, South Asia, and North Africa, where terrorist groups operate.
