Another terror attack took innocent life in Berlin.

Here’s what’s happening behind the headlines.

Attacks continue to occur here and abroad.  There are too many similarities.  The attacker is a Muslim immigrant.  Sometimes a refugee.  Who arrived in-country with no vetting.  Often authorities don’t know his background. Or relationships. Or who he’s associated with. Or what his long-term intentions are.

And when an attack occurs, Washington politicians act surprised.  And insist no one could have seen this coming.

In the last few years, we’ve had an open-door policy that invites anyone to settle here.  Federal authorities settle refugees in local communities and refuse to notify state officials.  They wouldn’t be trying to keep this a secret if they truly thought what they were doing was right.

Our nation’s history is rich with immigrants who’ve come to our shores and have made valuable contributions.  And we’re a better nation for it.  We shouldn’t just close our doors.

But we’ve entered troubling times.  Islamic radicals believe it’s their calling to convert or kill all non-believers.  To turn a blind-eye to those who fit this profile and to invite them into our communities is irresponsible.
