The FBI is investigating an alleged human smuggling operation based in Chaparral, N.M., that agents say is bringing "Iraqis and other Middle Eastern" individuals across the Rio Grande from Mexico.
An FBI intelligence report distributed by the Washington, D.C. Joint Terrorism Task Force, obtained by the Blotter on ABCNews.com, says the illegal ring has been bringing Iraqis across the border illegally for more than a year.
The Cubans were taken to the Gasparilla Marina, where they ate lunch provided by the Red Cross and waited for vans to transport them to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Homestead. Officials said they would go through background checks, to make sure none had criminal records, then released. Because they made it to land, they will be permitted to apply for legal status.

It is no secret our boarders are not secure and the Bush administration has no real intent to secure them properly.
