In a stunning declaration last week at a conference in Guatemala attended by US Vice-President Mike Pence, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales announced the capture of 100 ISIS terrorists in Guatemala, a well-known paradise for human smugglers.
With the recent news of another caravan of 4,000 Central Americans on its way to the US southern border intent upon either entering the United States illegally or seeking asylum, this is not good news. One can only imagine how many terrorists and gang members are among the caravan, how many have infiltrated the United States already, and how many are standing by to join the next caravan.
Overwhelmed by the volume of illegal immigrants attempting to cross the US border and with detention facilities filled to capacity, ICE has been forced to open the door and release illegals into the US.
