obama-911“We don’t know.”

That was the jaw-dropping response by an Obama regime bureaucrat and Representative Mark Meadows when asked how many foreigners have overstayed their visas every year.

The latest gut punch to our national security is an explosive report that the United States government has no idea how many foreigners have overstayed their visas and continue to stay in our country illegally.

And what should send a chill down everyone’s spine is the fact that two of the 9/11 hijackers Satam al-Suqami and Nawaf al-Hazmi — had overstayed their visas and remained in the country to carry out the murders of 3,000 innocent American citizens.

If Barack Obama believes he is acting to protect America, he sure has a funny way of showing it.

The number of foreign immigrants overstaying their visas is staggering.

The New York Times reports:

“One widely cited statistic from a 1997 report by the Immigration and Naturalization Service, puts the number of people who overstay their visas at 40 percent — which now would mean about 4.4 million of the estimated 11 million undocumented residents in the United States. Numerous lawmakers, including the Republican presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, have used that figure when trying to describe the scope of the problem. But even that number has never been conclusively substantiated.”

Congress has demanded an accurate count of foreigners overstaying their visas since 1994.

The Obama regime has completely failed to provide a number.

The Times also reports:

“In early 2013, Janet Napolitano, then the secretary of Homeland Security, testified before Congress that the agency planned to issue a report on overstay rates by December of 2013. The agency did not follow through because officials said they did not have confidence in the quality of the data. Mr. Bersin said last month that the report would be issued in the next six months.”

Terrorists have repeatedly exploited our lax visa system to strike America.

Not only did two of the 9/11 hijackers overstay their visas and remain in the country illegally, but one of the San Bernardino terrorists provided false information on her fiancé visa application.

Our national security is threatened by our lax visa system that allows millions of foreigners to float around the country illegally or cannot adequately screen for terrorists looking to sneak into America.

By now,  Americans are waking up to the realization Obama is asleep at the wheel on defending American national security.

Open borders and flooding the country with foreigners to fundamentally change our values, culture and politics is Obama’s chief pursuit.

Obama’s scheme involves overloading the system with illegal aliens to create a critical mass crisis where amnesty is the only solution.

Once millions of illegal aliens are granted amnesty,  they can be registered to vote Democrat and complete Obama’s fundamental transformation of America.

But there won’t be a political system left to overhaul if murderous terrorists like the 9/11 hijackers are allowed to illegally remain in our country on overstayed visas.

ISIS has promised to strike the West.

Iran is developing nuclear weapons.

The terrorist threat is only growing and Barack Obama is inviting an attack even worse than 9/11 by refusing to enforce our immigration laws.
