Are terrorists entering the United States from Mexico?

Texas Sheriffs Say Terrorists Entering US from Mexico

( - The chief law enforcement officers of several Texas counties along the southern U.S. border warn that Arabic-speaking individuals are learning Spanish and integrating into Mexican culture before paying smugglers to sneak them into the United States. The Texas Sheriffs' Border Coalition believes those individuals are likely terrorists and that drug cartels and some members of the Mexican military are helping them get across the border.

Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez of Zapata County, Texas told Cybercast News Service that Iranian currency, military badges in Arabic, jackets and other clothing are among the items that have been discovered along the banks of the Rio Grande River. The sheriff also said there are a substantial number of individuals crossing the southern border into the U.S. who are not Mexican. He described the individuals in question as well-funded and able to pay so-called "coyotes" - human smugglers - large sums of money for help gaining illegal entry into the U.S.

Although many of the non-Mexican illegal aliens are fluent in Spanish, Gonzalez said they speak with an accent that is not native.

"It's clear these people are coming in for reasons other than employment," Gonzalez said.

That sentiment is shared by Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.).

"For years, Muslims and other 'Special Interest Aliens' from places other than Mexico have been streaming into the U.S. across our porous border," Tancredo told Cybercast News Service. "These people are not paying $50,000 or more a head just to 'take jobs no American will do.'

"Terrorists are working round the clock to infiltrate the United States," he added. "Congress and this administration must address this gaping hole in our national security and they must do it now."

Some of the more high profile pieces of evidence pointing to terrorist infiltration of the U.S. have been uncovered in Jim Hogg County, Texas, which experiences a high volume of smuggling activity, according to local law enforcement.

"We see patches on jackets from countries where we know al Qaeda to be active," Gonzalez explained.

The patches appear to be military badges with Arabic lettering. One patch in particular, discovered this past December, caught the attention of federal homeland security officials, according to Gonzalez and local officials familiar with the investigation.

Sheriff Wayne Jernigan of Valverde County, Texas, told members of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in March about one patch that read "midnight mission" and displayed an airplane flying over a building heading towards a tower. Translators with DHS have said some of the various phrases and slogans on the items could mean "martyr," "way to eternal life," or "way to immortality."

Gonzalez told the House International Relations Subcommittee on International Terrorism and Nonproliferation in July that the terrorists are getting smarter.

"To avoid apprehension, we feel many of these terrorists attempt to blend in with persons of Hispanic origin when entering the country." Gonzalez stated. "We feel that terrorists are already here and continue to enter our country on a daily basis."

Sheriff Arvin West of Hudspeth County, Texas, told Cybercast News Service that he believes some Mexican soldiers are operating in concert with the drug cartels to aid the terrorists.

"There's no doubt in my mind," he said, "although the Mexican government and our government adamantly deny it."

Statistics made available through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) show more than 40,000 illegal aliens from countries "Other Than Mexico," designated as OTMs, were apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol in the period ranging from October 2003 to June 2004, as they attempted to cross the southwestern border. An overview of border security challenges produced through the office of Texas Gov. Rick Perry indicates that almost 120,000 OTMs were apprehended while attempting to cross into the state from January through July 2005.

Local authorities are particularly concerned about illegal aliens arriving from Special Interest Countries (SICs) where a radical version of Islam is known to flourish. Perry's office cites Iraq, Iran, Indonesia and Bangladesh among those countries. A Tancredo spokesperson said the list also includes Afghanistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and Yemen.

As Cybercast News Service previously reported an internal audit of DHS that combines the number of illegal aliens arriving from SICs with the documented instances of illegal aliens arriving from countries identified as being state sponsors of terrorism (SSTs) yields a grand total of over 90,000 such illegal aliens who have been apprehended during the five year period from fiscal year 2001 to fiscal year 2005.

The border security report delivered by Perry's office focuses attention on the "Triborder region" of Latin America, which spans an area between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.

"The Triborder Region is a focal point of Islamic extremism," the report states. "Al Qaeda leadership plans to use criminal alien smuggling organizations to bring terrorist operatives across the border into the U.S."

Carlos Espinosa, a press spokesman for Tancredo, said his office is aware of a training camp in Brazil that actually teaches people from outside of Latin America how they can assimilate into the Mexican culture.

"They come up as illegal aliens and disguise themselves as potential migrant workers," Espinosa said.

I just hope bin laden doesn't show up at the border with 4 guys in car , trunk load of drugs be spotted bail out run into Mexico per all the pro illegals - who rammed this down our throat- border policy- agents cannot pursue him or shoot at him.With policy's like that you can be sure they are taking notes.

would'nt bush who thinks he is the security president have closed off the border if he thought that was happening

The 911 commission reports says that our boarder is open and needs to be secured as terrorists can easily enter.

Time to finish the border fence, I'd say...

I wouldn't be surprised--and from Canada, too, and I'm sure somehow the liberals will all say it's Bush's fault. Isn't everything?

You bet they are. The middle Easterners can blend in very easily with the Hispanics and this is one of the primary things we want to stop on our southern border.

It's funny how Mexico has some of the most stringent immigrations laws for a country that wants open borders

My little princess, they are entering from everywhere. The government is doing little to nothing to stop it. It's going to take ANOTHER tragedy prior to the government taking action and, even then, they will pass blame and find yet ANOTHER excuse to leave our borders unguarded.

Yes!! Terrorists are not idiots. They know where the weak link is and they will enter there (Mexican border with USA). Border patrols have found all sorts of trash at the border indicating Eastern groups affiliated with terrorists: papers, patches, clothing with insignias. If stupid Mexicans can evade border patrol, an intelligent terrorist certainly can. We don't know how many have already reach the USA, how can we we have no control over who or howmany people come across that border. Bin Ladin could be here for all we know!!
Closing that border is part of the oath the president took, he's suppose to protect the American citizens from invaders from other countries who intend to cause us harm.

Yes unfortunately ... this is not the first such report I've read, I actually read last year that Al Quaida was studying our open borders with interest ... when I voiced my concern about that on this forum, I got the predictable answers that "no terrorist has come across the southern border, only the northern" ... and that means, does it, that since it apparently, not that anybody knows, no terrorist came in over the southern border before, no terrorist will ever come through the southern border ... that's logic for ya ... :)

duh!! yes they are. All they have to do is take the towel off their head and they look like mexicans crossing the border.

No matter what the anti-gun people say,we will need our guns soon.

I dont know, go wait at the border and see.

If the border cant be protected from illegals why couldn't they come into the US via the same routes?As far as Bush is concerned he doesn't have time to worry about intelligent things that are in our own country.Did anyone read the new legislation being proposed in Congress,the senate is offering one and so is the House,both have some very good new laws,so may be congress has awaken from its long nap and "discovered" the real problems are at our borders.Its far too long to post but please read them if you can.Some great new laws with teeth in both offerings.One of them being the hiring of 12,000 more Border Patrol and fences .And declaring English as this country's language,requiring illegals that came to this country at least 5 yrs ago learn English ,pay $ 3,250. in fines and fees,pay back taxes for wages earned as an illegal and pass a back ground check and then you can get a green card.For illegals that have been here 2 to 5 years ago become temporary workers only if they return to a port of entry and return legally,they would have 3 yrs to apply for temporary worker status and could apply for permanent legal status once they are approved as temporary worker,Very interesting,I could live with both but favor the House because its a little tougher.....Read them if you can find a copy mine was in our morning paper.

Enjoy The Reading

Princess: yes, I think the U.S. must take care of their borders and be sure who can pass to your country and who cannot, because terrorist are the worst people in the world, selfish, that don't mind hurting other people, they don't care if they are adults, children, etc... thank God here in Mexico we don't have that many enemies... hope we can stay in peace with everyone...

Ruby: You say Mexicans are "stupid" because for their families they risk their lives to go to your country and try to get a better paying job than here in Mexico, and never think of hurting anyone else, and you call terrorists "intelligent" because the only thing they want and plan and do it, is to kill people that differ from their believes... SO, are you stupid or intelligent?.... mmmmmm.............

I agree with Made In American. Terrorist are entering from everywhere.

P.S. How about only posting the link?

Do you really expect people to really want to read that long question? that is a little ridiculous.
