President Obama and his administrative chiefs may claim the borders are safe and Americans have nothing to fear from potential terror-tied illegal crossers – but U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents working with Mexico’s immigration forces have a different story to tell.
And it’s one that should worry the counter-terrorism folk in Washington, D.C., and at the Pentagon.
From the blog Creeping Sharia:
“‘The reality is that the vast majority of the people that Mexico encounters [on its southern border] that are extra-continental will eventually end up on our border,’ a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told Reuters this week.
“The Reuters article confirmed the Syrian nationals reported at the Mexican border with Laredo last year by Breitbart Texas’s Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz are part of this growing pattern of illegal migration. Just a few days after that, Darby and this writer broke the news of six men from Pakistan and Afghanistan being arrested about sixteen miles inside the United States in Arizona. Those men were quickly snatched up from the Border Patrol’s custody by the FBI. Shortly after that, five more Syrian Nationals were detained at the Laredo port of entry.”
Since, the feds have gone mum on producing the actual facts and figures on the true count of what’s called “Special Interest Aliens,” the blog reported.
Reuters reported 6,342 SIAs were caught at Mexico’s southern border, up from a year ago, when the total was 4,261.
Only 1,831 were reported for 2014.
Again, from Creeping Sharia:
“Most of those SIA tend to enter the U.S. through Texas.
“That document revealed large numbers of illegal aliens being apprehended in the United States from China, Pakistan, Egypt, Yemen, North Africa, and other Middle Eastern countries.”
And the problem apparently has grown to such proportions that Mexico officials have been forced to set up a detention camp for the mostly Muslim illegals near the country’s southern border with Guatemala.
Once again, from the Creeping Sharia, citing Reuters:
“CBP officials have been training the Mexican immigration officials on interview techniques. They have also been using U.S. databases to investigate the background of these immigrants to Mexico, Reuters reported.
“‘The Tapachula area is along a permeable border. DHS (Department of Homeland Security) views it as one of the areas where a terrorist group that wants to do harm on U.S. soil would be most likely to come in,’” Adam Isacson, a security and border policy analyst at The Washington Office on Latin America, a non-profit human rights advocacy group, told Reuters.”
