Another Reason to Oppose Obama’s Policy of Administrative Amnesty?
Amine el-Khalifi is a Moroccan young man who came to the United States 14 years ago at the age of 16 on a tourist visa. He eventually overstayed his visa as thousands of others do each year and has resided illegally in the United States ever since.
On Friday morning el-Khalifi was arrested on terrorism charges as part of an FBI sting. He was headed for the U.S. Capitol’s visitor entrance wearing a bomb vest and holding a Mac 10 machine gun. His intent was to kill as many people as possible in his suicide mission. El-Khalifi was engaged in what he thought was a suicide mission for al-Qaeda.
According to press reports, el-Khalifi had been preparing for this event for some time, even testing home made explosives in a quarry in West Virginia. What is most disconcerting is the fact that until his plans for terrorism came to the attention of federal authorities, el-Khalifi would have been eligible for the Obama Administration’s new policy of administrative amnesty, or potentially given U.S. citizenship through the DREAM Act.
