Horrific new terror threat in U.S. shows how serious things are

Because of Joe Biden’s open border policies, the nation has been opened up to danger. But no one expected things to go this far.

And now, a horrific new terror threat in the U.S. shows how serious things really are.

In a startling revelation that underscores the vulnerabilities within the U.S. immigration system, federal law enforcement officials have arrested 33-year-old Jovokhir Attoev, an Uzbek national accused of ties to the terrorist organization ISIS.

This arrest has sparked renewed criticism of how asylum claims are processed and monitored in the United States, particularly amid increasing concerns about national security.

Attoev, who has been living in the U.S. while applying for asylum, was apprehended in Baltimore by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

His journey into the U.S. began in February 2022 when he crossed the Arizona border, was detained by Border Patrol, and subsequently claimed asylum.

Despite an initial background check that failed to reveal any negative information, Attoev was released into the U.S. with a scheduled court date — a decision that would later come under severe scrutiny.

In May 2023 Uzbekistan issued an international notice highlighting his alleged affiliation with ISIS.

However, it was not until March 2024, as U.S. officials reviewed his asylum application, that they connected Attoev with the notice from Uzbekistan, leading to his arrest nearly a year later.

He now awaits trial in immigration court, where the government will argue for his continued detention due to his ties to terrorist groups.

This case is not isolated. ICE also recently apprehended Mohammad Kharwin, a 48-year-old who entered the U.S. illegally through the southern border.

Kharwin, identified as a member of Hezb-e-Islami (HIG), a political and paramilitary organization designated by the U.S. as a terrorist group, had been freely moving throughout the country for a year before his arrest.

Hezb-e-Islami has been implicated in the deaths of multiple American soldiers in Afghanistan from 2013 to 2015, and is described by the Director of National Intelligence as a “virulently anti-Western insurgent group” aiming to replace Afghanistan’s Western-backed government with an Islamic state based on Sharia law.

These incidents have highlighted critical weaknesses in the U.S. immigration system, particularly the lengthy process times and gaps in background checks that can allow individuals with potential terrorist ties to enter and remain in the country unchecked.

Federal law enforcement officials point to these cases as exemplifying the dangers inherent in the current immigration and asylum systems, where delays and bureaucratic inefficiencies can pose serious risks to national security.

These flaws not only jeopardize public safety but also undermine the integrity of the legal immigration pathways.

The debate over how to balance security with humanitarian considerations continues to intensify, especially as the U.S. faces ongoing challenges related to border security and international terrorism.

The cases of Attoev and Kharwin serve as potent reminders of the stakes involved, prompting calls from conservative circles for significant reforms to ensure that the immigration system is not only fair but also rigorous in safeguarding the nation.

Because of Joe Biden and the radical Left’s inaction, the nation has been open to attacks and threats from foreign terrorist groups for far too long.

We must demand a swift solution to this crisis.
