Maybe "Homegrown Terrorists" Ain't "Homegrown"?

Once again, Ted Cruz is asking the right question.

With the FBI warning that the homegrown terror problem is growing out of control, especially among the ranks of families who emigrated from the Middle East, two conservative senators want answers on the danger of our immigration policies and the role it has played in homegrown terror.  Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) have sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, and Secretary of State John Kerry demanding answers regarding the immigration status of the growing list of individuals caught planning terror attacks, executing terror attacks, or flying abroad to fight for Islamic terror groups....

Well, duh!!

Chris Christie indirectly admits the problem, too.  But he won't "go there," will he?

...After he was asked why he couldn’t get a search warrant, Christie stated, “Because if you don’t have probable cause, you can’t get a search warrant. Let’s remember something, we had in — pre-9/11, we had folks over here who had no apparent terrorist ties, but were getting phone calls from people who did have terrorist ties from out of the country. If we had had the NSA program then, we very well could have matched those phone numbers up, that would have been — given us probable cause to go after the folks who were here in the country before 9/11. I don’t know if that would have prevented 9/11, but it would have given us a much better chance than the one we had....

The unlimited immigration policies exercised (legally or not) by the Feds over the last 20 years have created far more problems than just wage suppression and unemployment of native-born US citizens.

Now we await Cdl Dolan's condemnation of all this as "Xenophobic nativism."  Did Cdl. Dolan's history teaching include reference to "Xenophobic nativism" on the part of FDR during WWI?
