Another one of Obama’s “Dreamers” strikes again!
Ths time 51-year-old Ahmed Amin El-Mofty who is a “Religion of Peace” follower from Egypt, allegedly targeted police officers in Pennsylvania last week. He fired multiple shots at officers while they were sitting in their police cars and in one instance he shot into a police car and wounded a female officer. Luckily only a few days later Pennsylvania police caught up with El-Mofty and in an exchange of gunfire, the “peaceful Muslim’ ended up being shot and killed at the scene.

What makes all this even worse is the fact that Ahmed Amin El-Mofty was an actual naturalized U.S. citizen who was let into the United States from Egypt on one of those famed family-based chain immigrant visas. The long chain of migration that led to this terrorist’s admission into the United States was initiated years ago by a DISTANT relative of the suspect. One of the recent links in that chain that is never-ending was an extended family member admitted into the United States from Egypt on an F24 visa. Of course, all this went down when Barack Hussein Obama was president and he was letting people into this nation without the proper vetting, as was the case with most immigrants during Obama’s 8 long years in office.

This is what years of unchecked and unvetted immigration have brought to our great peace-loving nation. Not sure when exactly it became a right for the rest of the world to come to our country, but it’s way past the due we stop that trend. Just because your second cousin twice removed was allowed to come here doesn’t mean you have a right to be here also. We aren’t a wasteland for the world. It’s time to clean up our immigration system and build the wall. If not this won’t be ending well and we don’t need to become another Israel where they have been attacked day in and day out for the last 60 years.

The Department of Homeland Security said chain migration is the common element in two cases allegedly tied to terrorism activities, according to a statement released Saturday.
In the statement on Twitter, Acting Press Secretary Tyler Houlton said DHS “can confirm the suspect involved in a terror attack in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and another suspect arrested on terror-related money laundering charges were both beneficiaries of extended family chain migration.”
Chain migration is when an immigrant gains legal entry into the U.S. via sponsorship by a family member who’s already a legal resident or citizen. The Trump administration launched a campaign against the immigration system, in favor of a more merit-based structure, favoring education and job potential as factors.
WHITE HOUSE TO PUSH MERIT-BASED IMMIGRATION IN NEW CAMPAIGN
The memo referred to Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty, 51, who it said was a naturalized U.S. citizen admitted to the U.S. from Egypt on a family-based visa. El-Mofty went on a shooting spree Friday in Harrisburg and was reportedly targeting police officers.
The gunman, carrying two rifles and a shotgun, fired at officers in multiple locations.
“He fired several shots at a Capitol police officer and at a Pennsylvania state police trooper in marked vehicles,” Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said. The state trooper was injured but is “doing well,” he said.
El-Mofty pursued the trooper to a residential neighborhood and encountered law enforcement officers, who ultimately killed him after he fired “many shots” at them.
The statement also mentioned Zoobia Shahnaz, who DHS said was a naturalized U.S. citizen who entered from Pakistan, also on a family-based visa. Shahnaz was indicted on Dec. 14 after she allegedly laundered more than $85,000 through Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies overseas to the Islamic State.
END CHAIN MIGRATION, AS TRUMP WANTS, AND SWITCH TO MERIT-BASED IMMIGRATION
Acquiring the money through fraudulently obtained credit cards and a bank loan, Shahnaz laundered the funds to people in Pakistan, China and Turkey and “planned to travel to Syria and join ISIS,” federal officials said.
Shahnaz was charged in federal court with bank fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering and three counts of money laundering, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
In the DHS statement Saturday, Houlton said, “These incidents highlight the Trump administration’s concerns with extended chain migration.”
“Both chain migration and the diversity visa lottery program have been exploited by terrorists to attack our country,” Houlton said. “Not only are the programs less effective at driving economic growth than merit-based immigration systems used by nearly all other countries, the programs make it more difficult to keep dangerous people out of the United States and to protect the safety of every American.”
