This is news every one knew would happen, it’s just ACTUALLY happening now.

Could these “Iraqis” be recruited by Al Qaeda? Many people in the media believe that to be true

You don’t secure your borders, we get attacked…

Coyote’s are getting paid 20K – 25K per head! And Washington seems too concerned with Amnesty rather than Border security
I hold President Bush FULLY responsible if we get attacked through our southern border.

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.borderpatrol.jpg
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.

Border Patrol officials in the area said they were unaware of the specifics of the FBI’s report, and federal prosecutors in New Mexico told ABCNews.com they had no current cases involving the illegal smuggling of Iraqis.

The FBI report, issued last week, says the smuggling organization “used to smuggle Mexicans, but decided to smuggle Iraqi or other Middle Eastern individuals because it was more lucrative.” Each individual would be charged a fee of $20,000 to $25,000, according to the report.

The people to be smuggled would “gather at a house on the Mexican side of the border” and then cross the Rio Grande into the U.S., the report says.

“Unidentified individuals would then transport them to train stations in El Paso, Texas or Belen, New Mexico,” according to the FBI document.

The FBI in New Mexico had no immediate comment.

Until recently, the United States has kept its doors all but shut to the estimated two million refugees fleeing the violence in Iraq. Until this year, the country had taken in fewer than 800 Iraqi refugees, according to the State Department. This May, the Bush administration pledged to resettle 7,000 Iraqi refugees here by the end of the year.

    From my experience, I have nothing but good things to say about the FBI. Naturally there are exceptions but I haven't run into any. Certainly had far worse experiences with the CIA. I don't want to go into details but my case is similair to this mans Boris Korczak
