Texas Border Patrol Arrests Four Muslim Men from Bangladesh Illegally Entering US
In what is becoming a frightening and common occurrence, four Muslim men were caught illegally crossing into the United States on Friday.
Border Patrol agents in Texas arrested the four Muslim men who they say are from Bangladesh. The illegal immigrants were apprehended near the Fort Brown Golf Course in Brownsville, Texas.
According to the Border Patrol agents, they discovered the men were Muslim when they questioned them in Spanish and the four men didn’t understand. After inspecting their belongings, the agents learned that the men were from Bangladesh, a Muslim majority country.
The debate surrounding illegal immigration on the Southern US border has been focused on invaders from Mexico and Central and South America. However, what many people fail to realize is the fact that illegal immigrants from all around the world, especially the Middle East use the Southern border to illegally enter the United States.
In January of 2017, The Texas Department of Public Safety released a report that outlined their concerns about ISIS terrorists illegally crossing into the United States through the US-Mexico border. The report noted that since 2012, at least 13 terrorists have attempted to cross into Mexico through the border.
According to a report released in April of 2018, the border in Texas has become the number one point of entry for illegal Bangladeshi immigrants. As the third largest Muslim country by population, Bangladesh is known for being a hotbed for Islamic terrorism. In 2017, Border Patrol agents in Laredo, Texas apprehended 180 Bangladeshi nationals.
As Americans prepare to vote in the 2018 midterms, the Democrats are advocating to abolish ICE as part of their party platform. The implications of abolishing ICE will be extremely negative for the American people. Democrats claim that ICE is inhumane, but what they have failed to recognize is the importance of strong border security and a plethora of ICE agents to ensure that illegal immigrants and terrorists who cross into the United States illegally are quickly apprehended before they can harm innocent law abiding American citizens.
