ISIS and radical terrorist are not going to go through México because there are much easier routes to attack the United States through, then through the U.S.-México border. To this day there is not anyone that has provided proof that a radical Islamic terror threat has entered through México or perpetuated by a Mexican. I challenge anyone to provide proof, other than conspiracy theories. I believe in facts, so today I am going to add one more example to prove that México offers little, to no danger to the homeland of the United States from radicalized terrorism.
Yesterday, The Washington Times posted an article about Daniela Greene, an FBI translator that married an ISIS terrorist. According to the news article, Greene “was assigned to investigate the ISIS terrorist known as ‘Deso Dogg’ in 2014.” Daniela Greene, who joined the FBI in 2011, had a Top Security clearance.
It is nothing new that someone in the United States falls for radical terrorists and joins their cause. However, what is interesting about Daniela Greene is what it says about The Wall that is supposed to protect the United States from ISIS and other terrorists.
The obvious thing to note is that the FBI vetted Daniela Greene and gave her a high-level security clearance in addition to hiring her as a translator.
CNN, which broke the story, adds that Greene traveled to Syria in 2014 while still working for the FBI. Although Greene was married at the time, she nonetheless traveled to Syria, unbeknownst to the FBI, to marry the terrorist that the FBI put her to work on. Yup, she was tasked by the FBI to work on a terrorist, and then managed not only to travel to Syria but marry the terrorist.
But it gets worse, the FBI did not bring her to justice. Daniela Greene soon realized that she made a terrible mistake, after all she is a woman in the clutches of radical terrorists who treat women like dirt, and reached out to a friend about her predicament. Scared for her life, Greene ran back to the United States and basically turned herself in to authorities.
She was sentenced to two years in prison for her actions. She is now out of jail, according to CNN.
Like many other U.S.-based terrorists, Daniela Greene was a U.S. citizen, but unlike other U.S. citizens, she was born in Czechoslovakia. She was raised in Germany, where she met her first husband, a U.S.-citizen soldier serving in Germany.
Greene, married the U.S. citizen and legally came to the country.
After graduating from university, Greene, fluent in German, took a job with the FBI. She was eventually assigned to the case of her future terrorist husband.
Somehow, erecting a wall on the U.S.-México border is supposed to protect the country from ISIS terrorists like the ones the sneak in through people, like Greene.
But, but, Daniela Greene is an immigrant, doesn’t that prove we need the wall is something some of you are surely going to argue.
First and most importantly, México, nor the U.S.-México border factored into this case. Neither has factored into a terrorist case in the United States, as of today.
In the case of Daniela Greene, she was vetted extensively by the FBI by virtue of her security clearance and her FBI job and yet she was radicalized. How is The Wall going to stop that?
More importantly, she immigrated legally to the United States.
Again, México and the U.S.-México border had nothing to do with the threat of radical Islamic terrorism but, nonetheless, the narrative remains that México is a danger to the U.S.
Where is the discussion about the danger from Germany? Or, France, or for that matter, England. All of those countries can send over their citizens, even the radicalized ones, without even so much as a piece of paper visa attesting to their lack of danger to the homeland.
But, it is convenient to continue to stigmatize México.
Why? The only reason I can see is because our skin color is darker than those like Daniela Greene who are truly a danger to the country.
But, don’t let the facts get in the way.
