  • Jeb Bush agrees that 9/11 happened due to Bush/Clinton immigration policies

    American Thinker ^ | Ed Straker
    Donald Trump took a lot of heat for implying that George W. Bush was responsible for failing to prevent 9/11. (He didn't say it outright, saying merely that it happened on Bush's watch, but I think it was clearly implied.) He said that our porous immigration system was partially responsible for the attacks. And as it turns out, Jeb Bush agrees: ....a review Jeb Bush’s 2013 book Immigration Wars reveals that Jeb Bush himself agreed with Trump’s argument and admitted that our “leaky” immigration policy was responsible for the attack. Bush wrote: In addition to the Mexican drug cartels, the...

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Monday that he is merely stating the facts when discussing former President George W. Bush’s handling of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. “The fact is [that] we had the worst attack in the history of our country during his reign,” he said of Bush’s administration, according to CNN. “Jeb [Bush] said we were safe during his reign [and] that wasn’t true,” Trump said of his presidential rival. “I’m not blaming anybody and I’m not blaming George Bush, although if you look at his three primary agencies, they hated each other and they weren’t talking,”...

    ...The latest Trump-Bush bout began in the most recent debate. In the CNN Republican presidential debate, Trump blamed George W. Bush’s unsuccessful presidency for giving us President Obama, prompting an immediate response from Jeb Bush. TRUMP: “Your brother – and your brother’s administration gave us Barack Obama, because it was such a disaster, those last three months, that Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have been elected.” BUSH: “You know what? As it relates to my brother, there’s one thing I know for sure. He kept us safe. I don’t know if you remember…” This exchange sparked a war of words between the...

    Donald Trump says that if he had been president in 2001, his immigration policies would have kept terrorists from attacking the World Trade Center on September 11. "I am extremely, extremely tough on illegal immigration. I'm extremely tough on people coming into this country," Trump said on Fox News Sunday. "I believe that if I were running things, I doubt those families would have -- I doubt that those people would have been in the country."

    Jeb Bush is trying to capitalize off of Donald Trump’s attacks on his brother, former President George W. Bush, asking supports to donate to “fight back against Donald Trump.” “If you believe as I do that my brother kept this country safe and strong after those horrific attacks, then I need you to donate $5 and fight back against Donald Trump,” Bush’s campaign said in an email to supporters with a subject line reading, “Help defend my brother.”

    Donald Trump says he's not blaming George W. Bush for 9/11, but he claims that if he'd been president, the attacks never would have happened. In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," the real estate mogul said that since he's "extremely, extremely tough on immigration" the attackers wouldn't have been in position to commandeer U.S. flights. "So there's a good chance that those people would not have been in our country," Trump said. He took another shot at Jeb Bush for claiming that Bush's brother, the 43rd president, kept the nation safe. "I'm not blaming George Bush," Trump said. "But...

    A California man was charged Monday with operating a ring of illegal test-takers who helped dozens of Middle Eastern nationals obtain U.S. student visas by passing proficiency and college-placement exams for them. Eamonn Daniel Higgins, 46, of Laguna Niguel made an appearance in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana on one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud as immigration agents arrested 16 of his suspected clients who remained in Southern California... The allegations revealed a potentially dangerous security breach in the country's student visa system and underscored the vulnerability of a tracking process that relies on schools to verify...
  • Let's not die for timid and misguided political correctness

    The fact that the latest suspected terrorist threat involves students should come as no surprise. It is the predictable result of three things: an insatiably violent Islamist ideology; the politically-correct refusal of our political class to admit reality; and the comprehensive neglectfulness of our university authorities. This country has already produced a number of students who have gone on to become jihadist murderers. If this situation is not to get even worse, it is time not just to start asking questions, but to demand answers. Greedy for the extra cash they bring, our universities desperately seek overseas students and often...

    Daily Mail ^ | 09th April 2009 | David Williams and James Slack
    The scandalous abuse of British student visas has been exposed by the arrest of a suspected Al Qaeda terror cell. At least ten of the 12 men held in raids across north-west England were Pakistanis whose applications were rubber-stamped by the Home Office. Yet only one was studying at a reputable institution. Officials also believe they lied about their financial resources. Only last week Immigration Minister Phil Woolas admitted that student visas were 'the major loophole in Britain's border controls'. Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling warned last night: 'Given these latest revelations, we need to urgently step up monitoring of...

    US Ambassador Ford Fraker said in Sakaka that his country aims to double the number of student visas issued to Saudis. “Currently there are 15,000 Saudi students in the US,” he said during an event on Sunday with local business leaders to an audience at the Al-Jouf Chamber of Commerce and Industry. “We aim to increase their numbers to 30,000 over the next five years.” Fraker said Saudi Arabia should bolster its English-language programs because it is generally required for Saudis seeking to pursue higher studies in the US. Fraker also stressed the need for popularizing English teaching programs because...

    Federal prosecutors have filed additional charges against Adnan Mirza, one of the four Muslim students accused of preparing to join the Taliban to fight U.S.-led forces overseas. Mirza, 30, was accused of planning to engage in "battlefield jihad" in the Middle East and financially supporting the terrorism group. Here on a student visa, the Pakistani originally was charged in a four-count indictment with Kobie Williams, a U.S. citizen attending the University of Houston-Downtown. Williams, 34, pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge and awaits sentencing. The new 13-count indictment names Mirza alone and more completely outlines the allegations against him. The...

    The Bush administration has an open-door policy when it comes to granting student visas to Saudis and Talibanis (third item, The Daily Blade, November 17, 2006). As a result, 15,000 students steeped in Wahhabism are now ensconced at colleges and universities throughout the US taking engineering, chemistry and other subjects that will help the unknowable number among them who harbor dreams of jihad to become more effective mass murderers.Now, with sectarian strife reaching a fever pitch in Iraq – Sunni against Sunni, Sunni against Shia, jihadis against infidels – the administration has bowed to bipartisan pressure from Congress and will...

    Thanks to a joint education initiative by the US and Saudi governments, 10,936 Saudi students - a record number - are now enrolled at 733 colleges and universities in this country, with 3,000 more expected to arrive next semester. Nearly 87 percent of these students are studying at institutions of higher learning in just four states (California, Florida, Colorado and Virginia). So what are Americans supposed to get out of this educational exchange? Kumbaya, a professor tells The Washington Post: "At the government level, relations are strong. . . .
