hello i'd just like to add that all other things aside, by not securing our border we have given the terrorists a 2000 mile loophole in our homeland
security. And with bush turning a blind eye to the immigration problem because of the benifits to the companies (who contribute to his political
campaign)who hire these immigrants illegally and pay less than the federal minimum wage, we get things like this....
.. do you think this is a problem yet??!?!?!?
some interesting parts of the linked story....
"An al-Qaida operative who was on the FBI's terrorist watch list was recently captured near the Mexican border,"
"Rep. Culberson said the detainee had been living in Mexico for up to a year, where the terrorist "was taking careful notes on the movement of
people, police officers, wildlife, etc."
"that there are individuals from countries with known al-Qaida connections who are changing their Islamic surnames to Hispanic-sounding names and
obtaining false Hispanic identities, learning to speak Spanish and pretending to be Hispanic immigrants."
"And these are clearly Arab terrorists," Rep. Culberson added, "from countries like Yemen, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. They're crossing the border,
pretending to be Hispanic immigrants, and then disappearing."
This is huge news and VERY troubling! i thought it was the job of the government to protect its citizens?
As far as the thread topic goes, im willing to bet that it was just some armed drug smugglers swiping there goods back. But the fact that border
patrol agents didnt put up a fight is kinda wierd but after all they are underfunded they probably only have flashlights and mace.
