National Security and Border Concerns

In today’s blog, we want to emphasize that the goal is not to delve into politics but to raise awareness and stimulate thought regarding the security of our nation. Former Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, has issued a warning about potential terrorist attacks in the United States. Regardless of your stance on politics, it’s worth considering that McCarthy had access to intelligence that most of us can only dream of. As a former Marine and current law enforcement officer, I can attest that the information trickling down to us is indeed concerning.

National Security and Border Concerns

Since January 21st, 2000, over 7 million illegal aliens have crossed our southern border, and that’s just the number we know about through the catch and release system. The real question is, how many more have entered undetected? An alarming statistic is that 80 individuals on the terrorist watch list were among those apprehended. This raises the unsettling question of how many potential threats slipped through the cracks.

It’s essential to debunk the misconception that these immigrants primarily come from Mexico, Central, and South America. In reality, people from over 100 countries have entered through the southern border. This diversity opens the door to potential sympathizers with malicious intentions. To put this into perspective, 7 million people is only 2 million less than the entire population of Israel. At the current rate of illegal immigration, it’s estimated that by January 20th, 2025, 11 million individuals will have entered the United States, making them equivalent to the 11th largest state in terms of population.

All these factors considered, we must confront a stark reality: terrorists hell-bent on causing harm will not pause to inquire about your opinions or beliefs. It’s crucial to be prepared to defend yourself and your loved ones. The safety and security of our nation should be a top priority for all of us.

Preparing for Unforeseen Threats

  1. Awareness: The first step in protecting yourself and your family is staying informed. Pay attention to local news, government alerts, and updates on national security. Awareness is the key to being prepared.
  2. Community Involvement: Get involved in your community, neighborhood watch programs, or citizen patrols. Strong, connected communities are more resilient in times of crisis.
  3. Emergency Preparedness: Equip your home with emergency supplies, including first aid kits, non-perishable food, and water. Ensure you have a plan for your family to meet and communicate in case of an emergency.
  4. Self-Defense Training: Consider taking self-defense courses to learn how to protect yourself physically in case of an attack.
  5. Report Suspicious Activity: If you see something that doesn’t seem right, don’t hesitate to report it to the authorities. Your vigilance could prevent a potential threat.
  6. Advocate for Border Security: Engage in discussions about border security and support policies that address these concerns while maintaining compassion for those seeking a better life.

In conclusion, it’s not about fear; it’s about awareness and preparedness. We need to focus on safeguarding our nation and our loved ones. Let’s work together to ensure that the United States remains a safe and secure place for all its residents.
