The former FBI assistant director spoke to Megan Kelly on the Kelly File about the Paris terrorist attacks.
Kallstrom said he was “very upset” by the “migrant stream” into Europe which he believed was “orchestrated to a large extent”. “It’s very scary and it’s something we have to do something about”, Kallstrom said. “You know the fact that these folks travel from Europe and here in the United States and get training and then they come back to the countries, to me is just crazy and preposterous. And I don’t know how we we are continuing to do this thing.”
He went on to say that we have no idea who these people are:
KALLSTROM: When you look at pictures of them 90 percent males between the age of 18 and 30, it’s crazy. It’s phony. And we must end the sanctuary cities in the United States. What a farce. What a joke. With our open border and free society, we have a great FBI, they’re on demand. They don’t have enough people. We have a great CIA. We’ve curtailed the very legitimate activities of the NSA. This [kind of attack] could be in the United States, as the Congressman said. And what would we do then — we’d say ‘why didn’t we build up this, why didn’t we build up that, why didn’t we close the border’. Why did we have 50,000 people come here that we don’t have a clue that they are. This has to stop. If it doesn’t, it’s just a matter of time before what we’re seeing today in France happens here.
KELLY: The FBI has an investigation in each of the 50 states here into possible ISIS connections — in every single state in the union. So the question is if you were in charge of the FBI Now, what would you be doing differently? What can be done to stop this?
KALLSTROM: I would take away all of the — all of the things that burden investigations, all the nonsense that burdens it. We can do this well within our constitution. I would add many, many more people to the FBI. You have the notion that you can follow hundreds and hundreds of people. That we can do that with the resources we have is just not true. So in this wide-open society where we have these stupid sanctuary cities and these naive people that run these cities and these states, we cannot put any burdens, no extra pounds in the pack of the FBI. And we need to let NSA do what they need to do to protect this country.
KELLY: The FBI Director Comey has been jumping up and down about this saying, on the record, I don’t have enough people. Something’s going to happen. We’re going to get attacked. I don’t have enough people. I don’t have the resources to stop that.
KALLSTROM: Megyn, he doesn’t have enough people by thousands, not hundreds, by thousands to keep track of the people that we should be keeping track of 24 hours a day, 7 days a week right now.
KELLY: What is it? Why is he under-resourced and why do you feel that the programs you think we need to protect ourselves have been cut back.
KALLSTROM: This will sound very hard-hearted. We haven’t had enough people die here in the United States. I mean that’s the way it is. […] Here’s the President this morning saying that ISIS is contained, of all days to pick him to say that. I mean is that an exclamation point or is that an exclamation point?
KELLY: On top of that, the quote on those is the American blood is best. And we will taste it soon.
KALLSTROM: It’s always been best. The Israeli blood and the American are always — that’s the prime blood. And if we don’t do something about this flow — this so-called migrant stream, the Europeans, if they want to continue to dilute what their counties are all about, we cannot allow those people into the United States without a visa. There has to be some kind of an asterisk by their name so they don’t travel into the United States. And if we’re stupid enough to bring in thousands and thousands of these people, who we don’t have a clue who they are, all we’re doing is putting 50 more pounds in the backpack of law enforcement. That’s all we’re doing.
To me it’s very concerning, to the point where I am concerned of my own family. I am concerned of where my kids go. I am concerned about a lot of things. And I mean I’ve always had these concerns because, you know, you sort of have those concerns when you work in that field. But we’re just so naive about what we’re doing. And we don’t have to change the country. We don’t have to become a police state to do the common sense things.
