According to documents obtained by an immigration reform group, ICE reports that over 10,000 illegal immigrants are roaming the United States free. Not only are these illegal immigrants, but they are from nations that are designated as terror sponsors.
On Friday the Immigration Reform Law Institute that they were provided documents under the Freedom of Information Act that shows these illegal immigrants have either been given their final orders of removal or have been ordered deported. Despite this, these illegal immigrants are still in the country. They came here from Iran, Syria, Sudan and North Korea.

Immigration Reform Law Institute said Iran “led the pack with over 6,000 or 61 percent of their citizens with removal orders followed by Syria with 20 percent, Sudan with 18 percent, and North Korea with less than a percent.”
Dale L. Wilcox, the group’s executive director, said that these numbers are very concerning.
“It’s simply unacceptable that we also have more than 10,000 aliens here from terrorist states that are sworn enemies of America. We saw on 9/11 the damage that only 19 sleeper cell terrorists could cause. This is just the latest example of the disaster of sanctuary laws, which force ICE agents to operate with one hand tied behind their backs while making our communities inherently more dangerous,” Wilcox said.
It’s incredible that Democrats still don’t take securing our borders seriously at this point. There are people from known terrorist nations roaming all areas of our country. Despite this, the left still wants lax immigration laws.
