.@AnneSpeckhard: Tsarnaevs have interesting links but that's besides the point. In general, % of Mexicans in USA DWARFS % of Chechens.

.@AnneSpeckhard: you think there's a reason why we've admitted so few Chechens? Shouldn't possible radicalization have been monitored?

.@annespeckhard: haven't there been cases of deep cover moles? What makes you think ISIS wouldn't use a Syrian refugee in the same role?
