In the recent Washington Times news article (“American-born children of immigrants proving fruitful recruiting ground for jihad in U.S., Web) it would have been interesting if the Department of Homeland Security would have broken down the statistic that “75 percent of terrorists convicted in the U.S. are foreign born” to include ethnic origin and citizenship. Certainly there are gangs of drug sellers and murderers within their own communities who should never have been allowed into this nation.

Obviously the purveyor of terror against the general population would have been of interest. The large percentage of terrorists of those coming from Muslim nations should have been of concern with extensive examination to determine their background and, more importantly, their prejudices. They should never be admitted to this country to spread their agenda if it represents terror against any of our citizens.
