While most of you reading this today were not looking, México deported an Islamic terrorist. Many point their finger towards México for terrorists targeting the country although the fact is that México has yet to be proven as a source of Islamic terrorism to the country. As a matter of fact, the northern border is a proven source of terrorists attacking the United States, not the Mexican border. Nonetheless, the notion that México harbors Islamic terrorists remains. But while many were not looking, the Mexican government deported an Islamic terrorist back to the U.S.

Yes, you read that right, on Friday, Mexican immigration officials deported a jihadist back to the United States. The United States? Yes, the jihadist was deported to the United States because he is a U.S. citizen.

Mexican immigration officials deported a United States citizen for supporting terrorist groups targeting the United States.

Read that again because it is important, a United States citizen is suspected of supporting jihadist terrorists. The Mexican government captured him and deported him back to his home country of origin, the United States.

While many continue to point their fingers at the dangers of the Mexican border, the Mexican government is rounding up U.S. citizen terrorists and sending them back to Trump.

Those pointing fingers at México as a danger to the country should take one moment and ask themselves a simple question, name one jihadist terrorist that attacked the country through México. The answer would be none. Another important question is, name one Mexican jihadist terrorist and the answer would, again, be none.

Now change the citizenship from Mexican to U.S. citizens and the count is well above 50 U.S. citizen jihadist terrorists.

Of course, the facts don’t matter to the ones demanding The Wall.

This is because The Wall is not about keeping the country safe, but rather about keeping Mexicans out.
