Open Borders Present a Very Real Threat of America's Own Oct 7th

We’ve spilled a lot of virtual ink on the debacle on our southern border in recent weeks, and it sure seems like things are coming to a head, with several Republican Governors joining in opposition to the Biden Administration’s lack of any effort to control the influx. While the Constitutional implications of all this are interesting, and while we are sailing in uncharted waters with the legal wrangling, there’s another issue. 

As I’ve been saying for some time now, a big problem with all this is that a large proportion of these invaders are young, healthy, military-age men–and we have no idea who they are, where many of them are from, where they are going, or what they intend to do when they get there.

Being an obsessive reader, I’m always looking for something new to read. Having read quite a bit of Townhall scribe Kurt Schlichter’s work, I recently picked up his latest novel, “The Attack,” and I will tell you right now, it scared the kapok right out of me. Why? Because it describes an Oct. 7-style attack on the United States, scaled up accordingly, and the aftermath of such an attack. As I read the book, I could very easily see exactly how this could happen.

On Thursday, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) went to X/Twitter to present a letter from a range of former FBI, DHS, and other law enforcement officers on just this possibility. And it’s damn near as unsettling as “The Attack.”

The letter states, in part:

The threat we call out today is new and unfamiliar. In its modern history the U.S. has never suffered an invasion of the homeland and, yet, one is unfolding now. Military aged men from across the globe, many from countries or regions not friendly to the United States, are landing in waves on our soil by the thousands – not by splashing ashore from a ship or parachuting from a plane but rather by foot across a border that has been accurately advertised around the world as largely unprotected with ready access granted.

It would be difficult to overstate the danger represented by the presence inside our borders of what is comparatively a multi-division army of young single adult males from hostile nations and regions whose background, intent, or allegiance is completely unknown. They include individuals encountered by border officials and then possibly released into the country, along with a shockingly high estimate of “gotaways” – meaning those who have entered and evaded apprehension.

In light of such a daunting, unprecedented penetration by uninvited foreign actors, it is reasonable to assert that the country possesses dramatically diminished national security at this time. The nation’s military and laws and other natural protective barriers that have provided traditional security in the past have been thoroughly circumvented over the past three years.

In short, we are being invaded, and we, as a people, as a nation, are in no-s**t danger.

What we are seeing now–sex offenders, gang members, drug dealers–isn’t even the tip of the iceberg. Look at any photo or video of people illegally entering the country; oh, sure, you’ll see a few older folks and a few moms with kids – the legacy media is particularly good at finding these non-threatening folks and featuring them prominently. But most of the invaders–and yes, invaders is the term–are young, healthy men of the age for military service. I’ll repeat my questions from earlier:

Who are they?

Why are they here?

Where are they going?

What do they intend to do when they get there?

We don’t know. And that’s the threat. Since January 2021, as many as 10 million people have entered the country illegally. These people, in their very first action in the United States, broke the law. If one percent of them have bad intent, then that is 100,000 people here with the intent to do us ill.

It’s not just our problem. The left in this country often holds up Europe as an example of how we here in the U.S. should model our policy–but Europe is farther down this dark road than we are.

Why is Western civilization seemingly so bound on self-destruction?

The letter ends with these words:

The government will have failed grievously in its duty to protect.

That’s something of an understatement. If the Biden Administration were to try to deliberately endanger the American citizenry, it’s hard to tell what they’d do differently.

Government has only two legitimate purposes: To protect the citizens’ liberty and property. In both of these, the Biden Administration has utterly failed. And it may get much, much worse. To fix this a decade ago wouldn’t have been that hard. To fix it now will cost billions, and may require the deportation of 10 million people–some estimates go much higher–who are here illegally. But the cost of inaction may be much, much higher. We can’t afford an Oct. 7th-style attack scaled up to the United States, but 100,000 foreign fighters could easily do just that.
