You don’t have to be a genius to know enemies of America would target our poorly protected southern border. A newly declassified report confirms that the FBI shares that concern.

Declassified 9/11 report reveals FBI fear of terrorists crossing border
FBI officials have long suspected that terrorists might try to enter the United States through the southern border due to lax security, according to a newly declassified congressional report on potential Saudi Arabian ties to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence lawmakers voted to approve the release of the much-anticipated “28 pages,” a classified discussion of suspicions that the Saudi Arabian government helped the 9/11 hijackers. The report contains remarks on several potential links between the regime and terrorists, including one sign that terrorists were probing the southern border.
“Another Saudi national with close ties to the Saudi royal family, [redacted], is the subject of FBI counterterrorism investigations and reportedly was checking security at the United States’ southwest border in 1999 and discussing the possibility of infiltrating individuals into the United States,” says the report, which dates back to December of 2002.
This is one of the reasons people have responded so strongly to Trump’s plan for a border wall.
It’s not racism, it’s self preservation.
