Illegal Immigration Islam Terrorism

Is the Obama Administration Helping Muslim Terrorists by Weakening our Border Security?

As a retired DEA agent, It is saddening to see the decline and demoralization of any law enforcement agency, be it ATF in the wake of the Fast and Furious scandal, the Secret Service, the Justice Department, which I served proudly for a quarter century, or any other. That also includes the Department of Homeland Security, which was established after I retired, in the wake of 9-11.

I was reminded of this just in the past few days when it was announced that Harris Tarin, Washington-based official of the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Public Affairs Council, was joining DHS as a senior policy adviser to the Civil Rights and Civil Liberties section.

Tarin, like MPAC, hasn’t found a counter-terror enforcement action he likes. He has been a consistent critic of any attempt by law enforcement to develop intelligence within the Muslim community in the US. The NYPD has been a particular target of his ire over their own intelligence probes. That this man would be brought into DHS is a sad reflection on the leadership of Jeh Johnson, an empty suit hack that President Obama found in places only he could find to place into sensitive government positions.

Tarin isn’t the first suspicious character brought into DHS. That distinction belongs to one Mohamed Elibiary, who was hired by Johnson’s predecessor, the equally inept Janet Napolitano. Elibiary is an open supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, a man who abused his position by extracting sensitive information out of a DHS computer, which he used to attack Texas Governor Rick Perry. But that’s not all. As described by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Elibiary was a prominent participant and speaker at a 2004 Texas event that paid homage to none other to the Ayatollah Khomeini.

HOLAWhen it comes to protecting our southern border with Mexico, DHS’s priorities are Obama’s priorities. That is, accommodating the entry of thousands of Central Americans who are showing up at the border and falling into the arms of Border Patrol agents, waiving deportations-now by the millions- and finding a way to help DREAMERS realize their dreams. Protecting the American people and protecting our sovereignty are far down the list.

Where does that leave the thousands of dedicated investigators and patrol officers who want to do their job as they understood it to be when they signed on? Demoralized and counting the days until their retirement. That is the situation described to me recently by two friends in DHS. Unfortunately, for them, they are not counting days, rather years.
