“FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday the recruitment of potential homegrown terrorists by the Islamic State group is widespread and goes on ’24 hours a day’ across the United States. Hundreds of people are ‘consuming’ social media efforts to either draw them overseas to join the extremists ‘or if you can’t come, kill where you are,’ Comey said. ‘And that is a two-pronged siren song that goes out through social media,’” Breitbart News reported.

Another Illegal Alien Charged With Rape

    The two Honduran men are not “low level” priority. They were previously deported and returned to this country. But all illegals should be priority removal. Doing anything else only encourages more illegal entry, but then, that’s what this administration wants. We citizens have to obey the law, foreign nationals do not. Try it in any other country and you will be deported before you know what’s happening. As it should be.
