In the wake of the terror attacks at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, a new report has come out detailing that there is in fact an influx of ISIS terrorists returning from the battle fields of Iraq and Syria.
With this you would think that security services in the UK would be closing the border and monitoring these individuals with great scrutiny BUT THIS IS NOT THE CASE.
THE number of potential terrorists being watched in the UK has swelled to nearly 3,500 – but our security services are using powers to monitor them LESS than they did a year ago, Express.co.uk can reveal.
The around 3,000 potential terrorists monitored since 2015 has grown after the return of UK-born people who left to fight with ISIS.
Around 400 ISIS-trained fighters are believed to have returned from war zones in Syria and Iraq.
Despite being on red alert for more attacks on home soil like today’s carnage in Westminster, new statistics show the number of arrests, stop and searches, and examinations of suspected terrorists at ports and airports dropped in 2016 on the levels seen in 2015.
As Europe is engulfed by radical Islamists bringing terror and crime to the continent, Americans can only hope that we heed the lessons the Europeans did not. Maybe we can send this message to a few unelected judges about a particular executive order on travel from war torn and radicalized countries.
