The U.S. Department of State has issued a “Worldwide Caution” related to potential terrorist attacks amid “increased tensions in various locations around the world” as violence has unfolded in the Middle East.
Their statement explained, “Due to increased tensions in various locations around the world, the potential for terrorist attacks, demonstrations or violent actions against U.S. citizens and interests, the Department of State advises U.S. citizens overseas to exercise increased caution.”
The State Department further advised U.S. citizens to “stay alert in locations frequented by tourists” and encouraged them to enroll in a “Smart Traveler Enrollment Program” to receive information quickly and easily about potential alerts. Apparently, this app can also “locate you in an emergency overseas.”
According to Rasmussen Reports, “75% OF All Voters are now concerned that the current conflict in Israel will lead to a terrorist attack on the United States, including 43% who are very concerned.”
Much of this concern is due to the unsecured southern border, which has facilitated the flow of millions of unvetted illegal immigrants into the United States. President Donald Trump has warned that this could spell trouble for America’s domestic security, pointing out in a recent speech that there are “disproportionate numbers of young strong men” flowing into the U.S.
Trump ally and U.S. Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake stated during an interview on Newsmax, “We’re seeing video after video of people coming through Arizona’s border of military age, fighting aged men. These are not families huddled together, these are men. We don’t know where they’re coming from. We already know that they’ve captured & caught some known terrorists… this is not vetting people coming across our country. And we know for a fact that there are people here who want to do us harm.”
She warned, “…Eventually, there will be violence, because of this – we’re going to be attacked by people coming across who don’t love America.”
