Who is Really Coming Across the Southwest Border?
Over at And So it Goes in Shreveport I’ve posted a video from Justin Farmer at WSB Atlanta in which he looks at the folks “other than Mexicans” coming across the border. It’s a real eye opener. Pop on over there and watch it, then come back. It’s only 3 minutes long.
Mr. Farmer says thousands cross who are from places like Yemen, Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, and Iraq among others.
One Arizona rancher found a Muslim prayer rug on his ranch. Justin Farmer examined a Congressional report from 2006 entitled “A Line in the Sand: Confronting the Threat at the Southwest Border” (PDF – 39 pages) which confirmed members of Hezbollah have crossed the border. It also contains photos of military jackets found on the border, one in Jim Hogg County, with Arab insignia praising martyrdom and depicting pictures of planes flying into the Twin Towers.
In 2005, Border Patrol apprehended about 1.2 million illegals and of those about 165,000 were from “countries other than Mexico.” All of this traffic includes human smuggling, drug smuggling, and “special interest” individuals coming into the country and creating a threat to not just those border communities but to the nation as a whole.
The report also reveals the route taken by the Middle Easterners from Europe to the tri-border region in South America. Then they learn Spanish, trel to Mexico, blend in with other illegals and come on in.
Farmer reports on several terrorists seen in the U.S., in the Atlanta area, who likely came in from the southwest border, it is believed.
If the problem was this bad in 2006, I can hardly imagine how much worse it is now.
Meanwhile, we’ve got John McCain tromping around down there saying “Complete the danged fence!” and the U.N. is worrying about the human rights of illegals. The U.N. issued a statement today criticizing Arizona’s new immigration bill saying it could lead to racial profiling and also laments, “It also makes it a state crime to be in the country illegally.”
The world is truly upside down.
