ISIS in Our Midst – An Open Border is an Invitation to Terror


For years we’ve heard the threat that our porous border with Mexico could become a free pass for terrorists to enter America.

Now that threat appears to be a reality.


There are numerous reports that ISIS terrorists have crossed our southern border and are now in America.

Representative [mc_name name='[mc_name name=’Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’D000615′ ] Hunter (R-CA)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’H001048′ ] (CA-50), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, said last week that at least ten terrorists, potentially associated with ISIS, have crossed the border.  There are reports that four ISIS terrorists were arrested in just the last few days after crossing the Mexican border.

Democrat Representative Tim Bishop (NY-1) says that 40 American citizens who took up arms with ISIS in Iraq and Syria have returned to America.

The fact is ISIS is in our midst.

The Obama Administration’s immediate reaction to this is to do what they’ve done from Day One with ISIS, ignore and discredit the threat.

Remember ISIS is the same terrorist army that President Obama referred to as a “jayvee team” and about which he proclaimed you don’t “play whack-a-mole wherever these terrorist organizations may pop up.”

We’re flying blind in a war against one of the most sophisticated terrorist threats we’ve ever seen as a nation.

Knowledge is power, and thus far the Obama Administration has been able to play off the public’s ignorance about ISIS to hide its abysmal strategy to defeat ISIS.

If we don’t understand the threat that ISIS poses, it doesn’t mean the threat doesn’t exist; it just means we can’t defeat it.


That’s why, for months, our team at the ACLJ has been analyzing and sounding the alarm about ISIS.

Today, we’ve released a brand new book, “Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can’t Ignore,” written by ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow in collaboration with our law of war team, detailing who ISIS is, their goals, and how they can be defeated.

(You can listen to a shockingly revealing segment of the audio book here.)

The book comes out today, so you can pick it up at your local bookstore, Barnes & Noble, or Amazon.  As it races up the bestseller list, already number 3 on the New York Times eBook bestseller list and number 8 on the combined eBook and paperback bestsellers list, we are confident that it will meaningfully impact the national debate and our leaders as we seek to destroy this truly evil enemy.

ISIS is here in America, and we must be ready, willing, and able to defeat them and stop the terror they wish to impose upon our homeland.
