Growing Number of Illegals in the US from Countries Sponsoring Terrorism

New reports indicate that as many as 10,000 illegal aliens currently residing in the United States are from countries which have been determined to be state sponsors of terrorism, including Syria, Sudan, Iran, and North Korea.

The information, coming from recently-obtained federal data from the Immigration Reform Law Institute, indicates that all of these aliens have either been deported previously, or are have been ordered deported and are currently awaiting deportation.

Of the approximately 10,000 illegals from terror-sponsoring nations, over half of those are reportedly from Iran, around 6,000, with another 20 percent coming from Syria, and ten percent from Sudan.

From Breitbart:

There are more than 10,000 illegal aliens living in the United States who are from foreign countries that have been designated as state sponsors of terrorism by the State Department.

Newly obtained federal data from the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) reveals there to be over 10,000 illegal aliens living in the U.S. from countries that are state sponsors of terrorism, including Iran, North Korea, Syria, and Sudan.

All of the illegal aliens have either been already ordered deported by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or have pending deportation orders, despite remaining in the U.S. The overwhelming majority of illegal aliens, once resettled in the interior of the country, are never deported. There are more than 1.7 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. who have not been deported despite having been ordered deported or having pending deportation orders.

Specifically, more than 6,000 — or 61 percent — of the 10,000 illegal aliens are from Iran, while 20 percent are from Syria, 18 percent are from Sudan, and less than one percent came illegally from North Korea.

Despite sanctuary cities shielding all illegal aliens from deportation, regardless of their criminal history, ICE agents were able to deport on average about 44 illegal aliens in the last two fiscal years who were known or suspected terrorists.

As Breitbart News has chronicled, the Diversity Visa Lottery — which imports more than 50,000 random foreign nationals to the country every year through a random drawing — has brought nearly 30,000 legal immigrants to the U.S. in the last decade from countries designated as state-sponsors of terrorism. Roughly 30 percent of all Visa Lottery immigrants who have been brought to the country in the last five years have come from countries that sponsor terrorism.
