How can our government say it’s ok to have these people come to America when no checks were done on the migrants entering Europe? Security checks were not thorough and were sometimes not even done at all. There’s new evidence indicating that ISIS has taken advantage of the lack of checks to smuggle fighters into Europe. It’s shocking that cell phones weren’t checked on these people but hundreds of refugees were found to have pictures of ‘executions’ and ‘severed heads’. So here we have open borders with anyone coming and going and no checks. How can we bring these people here and be 100% sure they’re not terrorists?
Hundreds of asylum-seekers entering Norway were discovered to have images of ‘executions’ and ‘severed heads’ on their mobile phones.
The revelation comes amid heightened fears that ISIS is exploiting the migrant crisis to smuggle fighters into Europe, following last month’s attacks in Paris.
Police admitted that the ‘explosion’ of refugees crossing into the country over the summer and in recent months meant that security checks were less thorough than required, and weren’t checking the background of those entering the country.
The Police Immigration Service (PU) in Norway has been forced to work overtime and under severe pressure due to the massive numbers of asylum-seekers hoping to take refuge in the country.
But after searching belongings and mobile phones belonging to refugees and migrants crossing the border, police discovered ‘hundreds’ of examples of ‘photos and videos of executions and brutal punishments, such as images of people holding up severed heads or hands’.
They also reportedly found photographs of dead children and other victims of war, crimes and terrorism.
Numerous images of ISIS flags and symbols belonging to other terrorist organisations were also found, according to Norwegian newspaper Nettavisen.
Erik Haugland, head of Norway’s asylum programme pointed out that it was possible the images were on the phones for innocent reasons.
He explained that asylum-seekers might have the photographs in order to bear witness to the war and horrors they were fleeing in their home country, or they may have been a tactic to sneak through jihadi-controlled areas unharmed.
Meanwhile, an ISIS manifesto released earlier this month boasted of plans to exploit the migrant crisis to sneak jihadists into Europe.
It has already emerged that at least three of the group that carried out the Paris attacks in November had disguised themselves as refugees in order to enter Europe.
This includes Abdelhamid Abaaoud, who masterminded the plot and was later killed in a police raid on his hide-out in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis.
The forged documents were found at the scene of one of the suicide bomb attacks at the Stade de France, fuelling further speculation that ISIS may have a ready source of blank passports.
