Saudi Invasion

The U.S. has already been invaded by 10,000 Saudis. The Saudis are here on student visas, and there are currently 15,000 Saudi applicants to U.S. universities seeking undergraduate degrees just waiting for the okay to come into the United States.

Over the next 5 years, 25,000 Saudis are expected to arrive in (invade) America to take advantage of an agreement between President George W. Bush and King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz, with their bills and tuition paid for by the Saudi government.

Our government tightened up on foreign student visas after the September 11th al Qaeda attacks, since several of the attackers entered the U.S. on student visas. Apparently the Bush administration has decided to relax this policy, at least for the Saudis. (Do you remember the Visa Express policy in which Visas were churned out by the State Department as long as the applicants applied through Saudi Arabia, no matter what their country of origin?)

This scholarship program has opened quietly, with no announcements from the White House or the Saudi Embassy. According to Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, the White House Press Office has declined to comment on the program and Saudi embassy officials did not return phone call inquiries about the program.

25,000 is a lot of people to screen. I do not have confidence in the Department of Homeland Security. At the risk of stating the obvious, DHS has screwed up too many times. It’s common knowledge that Saudi Arabia is one of the leading sponsors of terrorism in the world. These 25,000 Saudi “students” along with the White House having no problem with Arab control (including security) of six major U. S. ports, and the apparent lack of White House concern over the border problems just adds to the sense of a total lack of security here in the homeland.
