Reports broke this week that Russia withheld information from the United States that could have led to an investigation of one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects two years before that attack took place.

But that doesn't change the fact that the FBI can't possibly keep track of all potential domestic terrorists, Howie Carr, columnist for The Boston Globe, told John Bachman and J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" Friday on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"It's hard for the FBI to keep track of all these people as they're letting in all these people who want asylum, who want to be political refugees, and they have a finite number of people trying to cover an infinite number of foreigners that are coming into the United States," Carr said. "I'm not defending the FBI, but I'm not surprised with the kind of case loads they've got."

The best way to reduce those case loads and to reduce the chances of domestic terrorism, Carr said, is to restrict the number of immigrants allowed into the United States.

"I think the lesson is the same one that we should have learned after 9/11. I mean, the fewer people we let into this country, especially from these terrorist hotbeds, the easier it's going to be to control them," Carr said.

"What would it be like if FDR and Congress [during World War II] had continued to let Germans and Japanese come into the country?"
