We must stop allowing the devils of MSM dictate our language.
The thousands of Hondurans and Guatemalans are NOT a “migrant caravan”.
They are INVADERS.
And as you can see from news videos and the pic below, like the Muslim invaders in Europe, the Central American invaders are mainly young, military-age men.
According to Breitbart, the migrant caravan invaders originated in Honduras when about 1,300 “migrants” began an organized march to Mexico toward the U.S. border. Despite the Mexican government’s announcement it would enforce immigration laws and turn back those who do not have a visa, the “caravan” grew in size to more than 4,000.
Yesterday, the migrants invaders broke through a flimsy border fence on Mexico’s southern border and swarmed into Mexico like locusts.
Here’s a dramatic video captured and posted to Facebook by Noticias Telemundo, NBC Universal’s Spanish-American language Telemundo News:
Reuters reported yesterday that the border breach took place in the town of Tecun Uman at the Mexico-Guatemala border. The invading horde broke through the border fence “and onto a bridge leading to Mexico, only to be halted by dozens of Mexican police in riot gear.” Mexican police say “a few” officers were injured in clashes.
In a televised address, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto called the border breach “unprecedented” and accused some migrants of attacking police: “Mexico does not and will not allow (people) to enter its territory illegally, let alone violently.”
Late yesterday, the governments of Honduras and Guatemala said they were mobilizing to assist the return of Honduran migrants to their homeland. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said he had spoken to his Guatemalan counterpart Jimmy Morales for clearance to send civil protection personnel to help the Hondurans and to find transport for those wanting to return. “We’ll continue this operation for as long as is necessary,” Hernandez said in a post on Twitter. Guatemala’s government tweeted that Hernandez would meet Morales today in Guatemala City to implement a strategy for returning the Honduran migrants.
According to Reuters, Central American “emigrants” from Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras make up the bulk of people now caught trying to enter the United States illegally every year, and that “several migrants” (i.e., INVADERS) at the Guatemala-Mexico border spoke of entire neighborhoods leaving their homes to join the trek invasion after news circulated on social media of a call for a new “caravan” to Mexico six months after the previous one.
President Trump has warned the caravan invasion must be stopped before it reaches the United States, and that all financial aid to Central American countries will be rescinded if the migration was not halted. On Thursday, he threatened to send U.S. troops to close and protect America’s southern border if Mexico did not stop the invasion. Speaking in Scottsdale, Arizona yesterday, Trump said he “appreciated very much” Mexico’s efforts to stop the caravan, but that “If that doesn’t work out, we’re calling up the military – not the (National) Guard – we’re calling up the military. They’re not coming into this country.”
Mr. President (@realDonaldTrump), the time for threatening words is over. It is time for action. Send a battalion of our military to the border to show Mexico-Guatemala-Honduras and the American people you mean what you say.

I might take those who aid and abet illegal aliens a little more seriously if they were as determined to evict the illegals who kill and maim US citizens. MIGHT.
Sarah Root: Killed by an illegal alien.
From NBC New York: Hundreds of houses of worship are offering sanctuary to people who could face deportation if President-elect Donald Trump follows through on his campaign pledge to remove millions of immigrants living in the country illegally.
Kate Steinle: Killed by an illegal alien.
To some churches, sanctuary means spiritual support or legal assistance to fight deportation. Others promise or already are extending physical sanctuary by housing immigrants. In Brockton, a poor city of about 95,000 people south of Boston, four churches have pledged to take in immigrants fearful of being deported. “If you need a safe place, once you enter the doors of this building, you are safe,” said the Rev. Abraham Waya, pastor of Central United Methodist Church, who said his church can shelter as many as 100 people. “We will host you and take care of you for as long as it takes.”
Jonathan Montez: Killed by an illegal alien.
During the campaign, Trump pledged to “immediately terminate” President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration, including the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which has extended work permits and temporary deportation relief to more than 700,000 immigrants brought here illegally as youths.
In an interview with Time magazine published this week, Trump adopted a more sympathetic tone toward young immigrants, saying, “We’re going to work something out that’s going to make people happy and proud.” A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the agency follows a 2011 policy to generally avoid entering “sensitive locations” such as schools, places of worship and hospitals to take custody of undocumented immigrants illegal aliens. The policy says enforcement actions can be conducted in those locations in cases of terrorism or when there are “exigent circumstances.”
About 450 houses of worship of various denominations nationwide have offered to provide some form of sanctuary, including living space, financial assistance or rides for schoolchildren, said Alison Harrington, pastor of Southside Presbyterian Church in Tucson, Arizona. Immigrants have been fearful for decades, particularly as deportations increased during the Obama administration, said Harrington, who is involved in the sanctuary movement on a national scale. But Trump’s campaign promises to build a wall along the Mexican border, to bar Muslims from entering the country and to deport millions “has really galvanized people,” she said. The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, with more than 140 congregations, has adopted a resolution calling for “holy resistance” to Trump’s immigration proposals and declaring itself a “sanctuary diocese.”
Peter Pedemonti, Executive Director of New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia
In Philadelphia, a coalition of 17 churches and two synagogues said it has seen a huge uptick in the number of volunteers for a program offering support to immigrants when ICE raids their homes. The program had 65 volunteers in May. In the two weeks following Trump’s win, more than 1,000 new volunteers signed up, said Peter Pedemonti, executive director of the New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia. “We know that we’re in a different historical moment right now and that our faith compels us to take increasingly bold actions,” Harrington said. (Note: From the New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia web site: “4 Ways to Fight Trump. Excerpt: “This is terrifying. Trump’s campaign of hate, racism and exclusion took the White House. The backlash of white voters was harsh and strong, and Trump’s rhetoric now has the power of the White House behind it.“)
Some churches have already made good on their promises. In Philadelphia, a 40-year-old man from Mexico has been living in the Arch Street United Methodist Church for three weeks. Javier Flores entered the U.S. illegally in 1997 and has been deported and re-entered several times since then. After being held in an ICE detention center for over a year, the agency released him for 90 days so he could prepare for deportation. He did not want to be separated from his wife and three children, so he sought refuge, said the Rev. Robin Hynicka, senior pastor. “For us, we feel it’s a moral obligation to keep families together,” Hynicka said.
Ingrid Encalata Latorre, an immigrant from Peru, took sanctuary last week with her year-old son, Anibal, at a Quaker meeting house in Denver. Latorre, 32, has exhausted appeals of a deportation order and is awaiting a decision on a final, discretional appeal to immigration officials in Washington.
She left her native Cusco, Peru, in 2000 to join an aunt in Colorado, where she found work as a dishwasher, cared for kids, cleaned homes and worked at assisted living centers, she said. In 2002, she bought fake papers from an unscrupulous street seller. She was arrested in 2010 and pleaded guilty to a felony ID theft charge. She paid $11,500 in back taxes and successfully completed parole, but her guilty felony plea brought her to ICE’s attention. Advocates arranged for LaTorre and Anibal to stay in the meeting house.
Anibal, a U.S. citizen, is being treated at Denver’s Childrens Hospital for a congenital twisted neck condition; her other son, 8-year-old Bryant, is also a U.S. citizen and attends a bilingual school in suburban Westminster. “I have lived half of my life here,” she said. “Don’t be afraid. Just fight and keep going.”
Not afraid to keep fighting: Brian Terry, killed by an illegal alien.
From Fox News: A soccer coach in Texas was arrested after he was accused of sexually abused eight of his players — boys between 10 and 15. Police say more players are likely to come forward. Marcos Ramos, an undocumented immigrant illegal alien living in Corsicana, Texas, is also is wanted in his native Guatemala for sexually assaulting children, police said. He faces three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and five counts of indecency with a child. Investigators say he has been fooling people for years, finding work under assumed names. U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement has placed an immigration hold on Ramos, Fox4 Dallas reported. Police said Ramos fled Central America and entered the U.S. illegally, first settling in Houston, where he coached a boys’ soccer team. Houston has issued a warrant for his arrest for aggravated sexual assault charges. But he’s facing more charges in Corsicana, where he’s coached recreational soccer for the past four years. The soccer coach lived across the street from a middle school and close to the team’s practice field. Ramos only coached recreational teams, never for a school.
A woman who lived next door to Ramos who has a 15-year-old son and requested anonymity told Fox4 that she took Ramos to the store last Christmas to help him buy gifts for his team. “It breaks my heart, because that could have been my kid,” she explained.
Corsicana police have not revealed what aliases Ramos has used.
The station reported that the group of players that has accused the coach is now about two years older than at the time of the abuse, police say. One of the older kids came forward and persuaded other boys to speak out about Ramos, police said.
From Kansas City Star: A man from Mexico who had been deported from the U.S. 10 times in the last six years faces charges accusing him of raping a child in Kansas. Tomas Martinez-Maldonado is jailed in Geary County on $100,000 bond on a charge of raping the child last month. Public defender Cole Hawver declined to comment Friday. The public defender’s office was appointed to represent Martinez-Maldonado during his first appearance Thursday.
The Geary County prosecutor’s office did not respond to a request Friday for a copy of the probable cause affidavit filed to support the charge.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation, which was asked by Geary County to investigate the allegations, said the matter was reported to police in late September. The agency said the suspect was detained immediately and turned over to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement until charges were filed.
The agency declined comment about where he was taken into custody and where the crime is alleged to have occurred, citing the ongoing investigation.
The criminal complaint filed Sept. 30 against Martinez-Maldonado said the rape is alleged to have occurred on or about Sept. 27. The complaint doesn’t list an age for the suspect but says he was born in 1978. ICE said in an email that Martinez-Maldonado, a citizen of Mexico, has been deported back to Mexico from the U.S. 10 times since 2010. ICE also said he has a 2013 federal felony conviction for illegal re-entry into the U.S., making him an enforcement priority for ICE, which means the agency would take custody of him when his case in Kansas is completed.
From Fox News: A good Samaritan is expected to recover after being shot more than a week ago by an illegal immigrant trying to kidnap a woman, according to a report.
Fox 31 Denver reported Friday that former paratrooper Brian Geer was shot when the woman, a total stranger, ran up to his house and frantically banged on the front door for help. Geer’s home surveillance camera captured the whole thing as the woman tried frantically to get away from the suspect, Jesus Garcia-Chavez, the station reported. “I could hear screaming as I was approaching the door and I probably heard a gunshot,” Geer, a paramedic, said. “After I made contact with him he said, ‘Oh you want shot too,’ and he pulled the trigger.”
“She’s screaming for help still so I ran toward him,” he told the station. “I’m not sure what I was thinking at this point except that she was in trouble.” The woman is also expected to recover.
It took police six days to track down Garcia-Chavez. He was arrested after a standoff at a Denver motel Friday night. He is being held on kidnapping and assault charges. Fox 31 said Garcia-Chavez has a long criminal record and was wanted on two outstanding warrants. Police said his criminal history includes assault to a peace officer, assault, possession of a weapon by a previous offender, felony menacing, assault, eluding, resisting arrest, forgery, trespass and possession of a controlled substance. He was illegally in the U.S. after previously being deported, according to the station. KMGH-TV reported that after his deportation Garcia-Chavez slipped back into the U.S. two or three years ago.
An illegal exploited the system and killed Kate Steinle
From Fox News: A federal program to work with local law enforcement to remove dangerous illegal immigrant criminals, implemented just weeks after Kate Steinle’s murder put the issue in the national spotlight, has resulted in fewer deportations, according to analysts.
The Priority Enforcement Program (PEP) was introduced last summer as something of a compromise to get sanctuary cities to work with the federal government on deportations by only requesting that local authorities hand over the most dangerous criminals. Statistics show that fewer local law enforcement agencies are refusing to work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, yet far fewer illegal immigrant criminals are being deported under the current scheme. “The end result is that ICE has not improved its performance through its detainer program in apprehending individuals who the agency seeks to deport,” stated a recent report by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a data research organization based at Syracuse University. Sanctuary cities, the broad term for more than 200 state and local jurisdictions that have policies barring cooperation with ICE, came under intensified fire after the July 1, 2015, murder of Steinle in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who had recently been released from local custody. By law, local law enforcement agencies are supposed to turn illegal immigrants over to the feds for deportation when they are due to be released from custody, but illegal immigration advocates say the policy violates the subject’s civil rights. Republicans in Congress, as well as GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, have called for cutting off federal funding to sanctuary cities.
Jeh Johnson, secretary of ICE’s parent agency, the Department of Homeland Security, announced PEP was taking effect on July 30, 2015, saying it replaced a previous system under which ICE ordered local law enforcement agencies to hold and turn over all illegal immigrant criminals eligible for deportation. In addition to not garnering local cooperation, the older system meant non-violent criminals or those merely suspected of crimes could be deported if they were here illegally. “The President and I want to better focus our immigration enforcement resources on convicted criminals over undocumented immigrants who have been here for years, have committed no serious crimes, and, have, in effect, become peaceful and integrated members of the community,” Johnson said. Instead of issuing “detainers,” or federal orders to hold and hand over illegal immigrant criminals and suspects, ICE now lodges I-247s, or “requests for notification.” Those requests are more likely to be honored, TRAC’s studies show, partly because they are made less frequently and cooperation does not mean actually turning over a subject. “ … Outreach efforts have drastically curbed reported refusals by law enforcement agencies to transfer custody of individuals over to ICE,” the TRAC report stated, before adding, “the proportion of occasions where ICE took custody of the individual after issuing I-247 requests has not rebounded. Indeed, this rate has continued to decline.” In addition, ICE often lodges a request to be notified of a pending release, but never acts on it, according to the report. During the first two months of 2016, ICE failed to assume custody of more than 60 percent of individuals it had requested notification on. In 2009, the figure was about 30 percent, according to TRAC, which called the drop “startling.”
Critics of PEP have long objected to the idea that only violent or dangerous illegal immigrant suspects should be ticketed for deportation when they cross paths with law enforcement. The federal government is obligated to remove anyone who is here illegally, said Dan Stein, president of Federation for American Immigration Reform. “Prioritizing the removal of the most dangerous and violent criminal aliens should not mean exempting all other immigration lawbreakers from enforcement,” Stein said. “The administration is using the pretense of focusing on hardened criminals to advance its real priority: granting de facto amnesty to the vast majority of illegal aliens.”
By prioritizing only those illegal immigrants who have proven they are dangerous, the federal government is effectively waiting for suspects to graduate to violent crimes, said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy for the DC-based Center on Immigration Studies.
Sarah Root: Killed by an illegal
Vaughan cited the case of Sarah Root, who was killed in a car crash in Omaha, Neb., in January after Eswin Mejia slammed his car into hers while he was intoxicated and drag racing. Mejia is an illegal immigrant who arrived into the U.S. as an unaccompanied minor, and who had several previous brushes with the law, said Vaughan. “The local detectives asked ICE five times for a detainer on Eswin Mejia, but ICE said that he was not a priority for enforcement because he had not been convicted of a serious crime,” Vaughan said. “He was released on bail and disappeared, and is now on ICE’s most wanted list. It was a major scandal for ICE.”
In another instance, Johnny Josue Sanchez, 21, a Honduran national in the country illegally who had been arrested three times, allegedly killed five homeless people when he set fire to a vacant building in Los Angeles. In this case, Vaughan said the combination of ICE’s and Los Angeles’s disinterest in removing Sanchez after so-called previous “minor” offenses resulted in tragedy. In yet another case, Marilyn Pharis, a 64-year-old Air Force veteran, was brutally raped and bludgeoned to death with a claw hammer on July 24, 2015, in her own home. Victor Aureliano Martinez Ramirez, 29, an illegal immigrant from Mexico who was arrested six times in the previous 15 months, was one of two men charged in the case. “All of these deaths were preventable,” Vaughan said. “ICE should not be waiting for deportable aliens to commit murder before enforcing immigration laws, and local jurisdictions should be cooperating fully in order to spare their citizens from becoming victims of people who should not be here to begin with.”
Department of Homeland Security officials did not return email inquiries to FoxNews.com about this report.
Via Fox News: Immigrants who want to enter the U.S. illegally can learn how and where to avoid the Border Patrol from an advisory on the agency’s own website, which critics say is evidence of the Obama administration’s “schizophrenic” approach to enforcement. Safety and sanctuary can generally be found at schools, churches, hospitals and protests, where Customs and Border Protection agents are barred under a “sensitive locations policy” from carrying out their duty of enforcing border security. In fact, the agency’s website states that actions at such locations can only be undertaken in an emergency or with a supervisor’s approval.
“The policies are meant to ensure that ICE and CBP officers and agents exercise sound judgment when enforcing federal law at or focused on sensitive locations, to enhance the public understanding and trust, and to ensure that people seeking to participate in activities or utilize services provided at any sensitive location are free to do so, without fear or hesitation,” the government website states in both English and Spanish.
While the explanation is apparently meant to show the deference Customs and Border Protection agents show to sensitive societal institutions, critics, including the Media Research Center, say it also tells illegal border crossers where to go if they are being pursued. Agents are barred from interviewing, searching or arresting suspected illegal immigrants in such locations.
“So, almost any illegal alien can escape arrest by either walking with a second person (a march), attending some type of class, or finding a nearby church, medical facility or school bus stop,” the Center wrote in a post bringing the advisory to light. A “Frequently Asked Questions” section explains in detail what the Customs and Border Patrol’s parent agency, the Department of Homeland Security, considers safe zones for illegal immigrants.
Schools, such as known and licensed day cares, pre-schools and other early learning programs; primary schools; secondary schools; post-secondary schools up to and including colleges and universities; as well as scholastic or education-related activities or events, and school bus stops that are marked and/or known to the officer, during periods when school children are present at the stop;
Medical treatment and health care facilities, such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, accredited health clinics, and emergent or urgent care facilities;
Places of worship, such as churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples;
Religious or civil ceremonies or observances, such as funerals and weddings;
During public demonstration, such as a march, rally, or parade.
Critics of the Obama administration’s immigration policies have long complained that it undermines the mission of border enforcement by imposing rules on agents that they say leave them unable to do their jobs.
“This administration has systematically and maliciously attacked and deconstructed all phases of border enforcement,” said Dan Stein, president of Federation for American Immigration Reform. “It’s to the point now where virtually nobody has to go home. ICE is no longer carrying out its core mission, of finding, identifying and removing illegal aliens from the country. Agents are in a state of despair,” Stein added. “They are being turned into nursemaids, chaperones and bus drivers.” Telling people suspected of breaking the law where they can seek refuge makes no sense, said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies.
“It’s schizophrenic,” Vaughan said. “What the Obama administration has done is to create sanctuaries for illegal aliens and to publicize them. That is fine for a social welfare agency, but not for a law enforcement agency. No law enforcement agency would ever want to broadcast where lawbreakers can go to be shielded from the consequences of their actions.”
The site does say the “sensitive locations policy” does not apply to places directly along the border, but warns its own agents that if they plan to move on a suspect in such a location near the border they “are expected to exercise sound judgment and common sense while taking appropriate action, consistent with the goals of this policy.” The CBP website also provides a toll-free number and email address to allow illegal immigrants to report possible violations of the “sensitive locations” policy.
Of course he is.
From Fox News: The Obama administration will soon expand efforts to help Central American families and children legally immigrate to the United States amid another surge of migrants caught crossing the border illegally.
White House Deputy Homeland Security Adviser Amy Pope said Tuesday that the administration will expand in-country refugee processing for families coming from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and launch an effort to temporarily relocate some families facing the greatest threats to Costa Rica. The government is also broadening a nearly two-year-old program to allow some Central American children to reunite with parents already legally living in the United States. Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said that program will now allow some unmarried siblings, in-country parents and other caregivers to move to the U.S. with a child approved for the program.
The efforts are designed in part to combat the crush of tens of thousands of families and unaccompanied children caught crossing the border illegally this year. But it is unclear how quickly the expanded efforts may impact the flow of immigrants trying to make their way to the United States illegally. Since the start of the budget year in October, more than 51,100 people traveling as families and more than 43,000 unaccompanied children have been caught illegally crossing the Mexican border. The number of such immigrants has been steadily rising this year after significant decreases between the 2014 and 2015 budget years.
The Obama administration first launched the effort to allow child immigrants to legally come to the U.S. in December 2014. More than 600 have moved to the United States since then. Mayorkas said 2,884 kids have been approved for the program and more than 9,500 applications are pending.
In January, the administration first announced that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees would pre-screen would-be refugee families. U.S. officials will now handle more in-country processing for those families.
Pope said refugee programs in Central America are being expanded because “current efforts to date haven’t been sufficient.” The new programs, she said, are designed to help “promote safe and orderly immigration and border security.”
Pope said it is unclear how many families and children may benefit from the enhanced programs but officials expect requests for help to steadily increase as the programs get underway in the coming months. In the meantime, Costa Rica will also soon start accepting up to 200 people in immediate need of refuge at a time for up to six months.
This would be funny if it weren’t so outrageous.
The private security firm that had employed Orlando gay club shooter Omar Mateen since 2007, is an outfit called G4S Security Solutions USA, which claims to be the world’s leading security contractor with operations in more than 100 countries and 610,000 employees, including 50,000 Americans.
It turns out D4S has a $234 million contract with the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to, among other things, identify suspected terrorists trying to enter the U.S. — all while Mateen, a Muslim terrorist who killed 50 and wounded another 53 at the Pulse gay club in Orlando, Florida, was right under their nose.
Talk about a case of fox guarding the hen house!
To top it off, the clueless G4S also provides security for 90% of America’s nuclear facilities!
Paul Sperry, New York Post columnist and author ofINFILTRATION: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington, writes for Counter Jihad, June 13, 2016, that “The Orlando nightclub terrorist who pledged allegiance to ISIS worked almost a decade for a major Department of Homeland Security contractor, raising alarms that ISIS sympathizers and agents have infiltrated the federal agency set up after 9/11 to combat terrorists.”
Orlando shooter Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, an Afghan-American who held two firearms licenses and a security officer license, was employed by the security firm G4S Secure Solutions USA Inc. since Sept. 10, 2007. After 9/11, G4S, based in Jupiter, Florida, merged with the Wackenhut Corp. and became the first contract security company to received designation and certification by DHS.
Through the U.S. General Services Administration, the company supplies federal agencies with guards, detention officers, court security officers, baggage handlers, security clerks, and prisoner bus and van drivers in contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The security company’s contract with DHS alone amounts to more than $234 million. In addition to the DHS, G4S has contracts with the Departments of State, Interior, Labor, Justice, and Energy; the IRS; Drug Enforcement Administration; U.S. Army; U.S. Air Force; and NASA.
G4S’s contracted tasks for the federal government include:
Identify “suspected terrorists” trying to enter the U.S.
Provide “support” to DHS and Customs and Border Protection (CPB) with their operations at the U.S.-Mexican border.
Work with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to transport illegal immigrants in fortified buses from city to city and from cities to the US-Mexican border. (Source: G4S’s “Providing Manpower Solutions for Government Services” brochure.) Judicial Watch, however, discovered that G4S has been quietly moving and releasing van loads of illegal aliens away from the border to interior American cities. The illegals were mostly Central Americans but possibly also from the Middle East and Pakistan.
Provide security guards and other security services for 90 percent of U.S. nuclear facilities.
Help the federal government with emergency security responses to “terror threats.”
It’s not clear if Omar Mateen worked on any federal contracts or dealt with federal inmates. It’s also not immediately known if he had federal security clearances, or what kind of security background check G4S administered before hiring Mateen. Company brochure says security officers “are subjected to a stringent background investigation” that includes psychological, background and criminal screening.” However, one of Mateen’s jobs was to help transport and guard state and local prisoner youths in Florida, despite reports he openly praised ISIS in conversations with co-workers, and even though he had been under federal investigation for terrorism ties since at least 2013.
In a 2012 company newsletter, G4S congratulated Mateen for five years of service. Attempts to reach G4S representatives Sunday were unsuccessful.
It’s not the first time a federal contractor has employed a major Islamic terrorist.
In 2008, Charlotte, N.C.-based Convergys Corp. came under fire for employing 22-year-old Sami Khan, a Muslim computer operator who openly maintained a jihadist website featuring grisly images of American soldiers blown up by al-Qaida terrorists overseas which he said “bring great happiness to me.” Convergys at the time had landed a $2.5 billion federal contract to set up emergency communications centers in the event to terrorist attacks and other disasters. Khan turned out to be an al-Qaida operative. He was killed in 2011 in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen.
