FBI Warns of "Terrorist Diaspora" of ISIS Migrants to West

He might want to talk to his boss about it. Because his boss is the one bringing them here to enrich us and become "part of our story". Just like in New York, Boston and Orlando.

Intelligence and law enforcement agencies worry that a surge of violent extremists will eventually move from ISIS-controlled areas in Syria and Iraq into Western nations with the aim of committing terrorist attacks, FBI Director James Comey told Congress on Tuesday.

"The caliphate will be crushed," but hundreds of people will remain and become part of a "terrorist diaspora" in the next two to five years. "When ISIS is reduced to an insurgency, those people will try to come to Western Europe and here," Comey said in testimony before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee.

They're already coming here. And Obama has brought thousands into this country. We've already seen ISIS acts of terror on our soil due to our immigration policies.

Comey testified alongside Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Nicholas Rasmussen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, at a hearing examining threats to national security 15 years after the 9/11 attacks. The hearing took place just over a week after bombings in New York and New Jersey and a separate stabbing attack at a Minnesota mall.

Rassmussen said the U.S. watchlisting system "allows us to have confidence that if we have an identity, we are very likely to prevent an individual from getting into the United States."

That sounds really reassuring. Is there any possible way terrorists could defeat our amazing watchlisting system?

Nonetheless, he said, the system is based on names and needs to depend more on biometric data that can't be fooled with counterfeit documents.

So the system will work fine... as long as the terrorists don't change their names.
