A former Libertarian vice-presidential candidate says the current crisis along the Mexico-U.S. border makes North America an easy target for terrorists.

In recent weeks, news reports have been littered with images of starving, sickly children coming across the southern border looking for food and a place to live. Thousands of foreign children are now in the U.S. with serious diseases and nowhere to go.

Wayne Allyn Root, author of The Murder of the Middle Class, says as awful as the crisis is there could be even greater issues as Muslim terrorist cells could be crossing the border.

"Al-Qaida isn't stupid. The Taliban aren't stupid – as a matter of fact they're brilliant war strategists," he tells OneNewsNow. "They're very good on the battlefield at adapting to whatever is thrown their way – and I guarantee that they know the same thing that we've known for weeks now: the border is completely open and vulnerable. Anyone can walk across."

Root contends terrorists – under the cover of distraction – are mixing into the massive influx of illegal immigrants coming into the country. "I guarantee you some have already entered this country and many more are on the way," he warns. "So if we do not secure this border, our entire country in endangered by poverty, by crime, by drugs, and by terrorism."

Recent evidence of Qur'ans and prayer rugs found at the border support the claims of Root and others who are concerned about the growing threat of terrorists crossing the border determined to destroy the U.S.
