Mark my words: If we get attacked, and we find out the terrorists crossed through the mexican border posing as illegal immigrant workers, there is only One person to blame for the ridiculousness and outright negligence of National Security and that is The Commander and Chief. The conservative base will never forgive the current republican party for this obvious offense to America’s national security.
Egyptian Muslims posing as Mexicans? Are you really surprised? With the border being so porous, it’s not a shock at all. Only a matter of time. Way to go President Bush for upholding the law and securing the border…
COLUMBUS, N.M. – On Sept. 5, a man calling himself Miguel Alfonso Salinas was apprehended off a deserted highway near the U.S.-Mexico border.
The agents discovered three Mexican migrants in the vehicle with Alfonso Salinas.
But what they discovered several days later made a far greater impression.
Alfonso Salinas was not who he seemed, according to U.S. Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security documents. He lied to the agents about who he was, where he came from and what he was doing.
It would take nearly a week of interviews with federal agents before Alfonso Salinas would give his real name: Ayman Sulmane Kamal, a Muslim born in Egypt – a country designated as “special-interest” by the United States for sponsoring terrorism.
Kamal’s case is not an isolated one.
Evidence of “special-interest aliens” using the Mexican border to gain entry to the United States has been kept secret from the American public, according to federal law enforcement agents, terrorism experts and critics of U.S. foreign policy with Mexico.
In 2005, the Border Patrol apprehended approximately 1.2 million people in the U.S. illegally. Of those, 165,000 were from countries other than Mexico, and roughly 650 were, like Kamal, from special-interest countries, according to the Border Patrol.
