A U.S. immigrant from Nicaragua explained how she legally came to the United States, on “Fox & Friends” Monday, and said those who are coming in illegally are a “threat to national security.”

Amapola Hansberger referred to the caravan of migrants headed for the U.S. southern border as an “invasion and act of war” against America and said they constitute an “immediate threat.”

Host Brian Kilmeade asked how Hansberger she was able to come to America legally and she said she simply followed the process.

“I went to the embassy, filled out forms. [I] submitted myself to the vetting procession and waited patiently for the embassy to approve my coming,” she said. “That’s how people should do it.”

Hansberger claimed there’s no way to keep track of those who come over the border illegally and said some of them could be radicalized terrorists who plan to harm American citizens.

“They are a threat to our national security because today — war is not only countries that go to war, it is groups such as ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Taliban,” she added. “And they have declared war openly against the United States. So with the open borders policies we’ve had, how many of them are in America? That’s the question.”

“I believe that the numbers increase every time they come in successfully and at what point are we going to call them — call the organizers are committing an act of war?” she said. “Is it at 40,000? When they bring in 40,000 strangers?”

Hansberger’s comments come after President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that migrants at the southern border who don’t apply for asylum in Mexico first will be turned away by American authorities.

Chicago saw a dramatic rise in gun violence with regard to children in 2020, as statistics showed the number of shooting victims under the age of 10 has tripled since last year.

As of the end of July, 24 children – 10 years old and younger – were shot within the city, according to a database of victims kept by the Chicago Tribune. The wounds proved fatal for five of them.

The overall total of gun violence victims for 2019 during the same time period was reportedly eight.

As of July 31, the Tribune tallied up 2,268 shooting victims of various ages for the year, marking an increase of 45 percent over the same period in 2019. Of those who were shot, 222 victims were 17 or younger, representing an increase of 36 percent when stacked up against last year’s statistics.

There were also 30 children under age 17 who were shot to death in 2020, compared with 19 from the previous year’s count, the Tribune reported. The victims were shot while playing in their yards, lounging in their residences, walking down the street and sitting in car seats. Several of them were infants under the age of 1.

This news comes after a weekend shooting in Chicago left 25 wounded and nine dead, including a young boy.

On Friday evening, Janari Ricks, 9, was playing with a group of friends when he was fatally shot in the chest by a gunman who walked up to the children and opened fire, investigators said.

Chief of operations for the Chicago Police, Brian McDermott, told the Sun-Times newspaper that Ricks “was an unintended target” and now a $4,000 reward is being offered for information regarding the person who pulled the trigger.

“While our city has made progress in reducing violence in recent weeks, all of that is lost when we lose another child to gun violence,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat, tweeted following the incident.

Janari’s mother, Jalisa Ford, told the Chicago Sun-Times her son was a straight-A honor roll student preparing to start fourth grade who called himself “Young Curry” in reference to his favorite basketball player, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.

“If he wasn’t able to pursue his dreams of becoming an athlete he wanted to do construction,” Ford added. “He wanted to help rebuild the community, rebuild something that the kids can enjoy later down the line.”

But now, she says, “it’s gone, it’s taken away.”
