Ya see this is what I’m talking about.
Concerned Americans like myself are often called racists and so many other names that I don’t care to mention and most people think that we are only against Illegal Immigrants from Mexico.
Ok so you think this, go ahead but we still have the problem of not only Mexican’s (I know someone will be offended by this) but also OTM’S this is one of the best examples of what is going on in our country.
ANYONE can get through.
I am not saying that these people are terrorist so don’t even go there.
The point I am trying to make is that if they can get through then anyone can.
So they got caught but how many haven’t?
Iraqi family caught crossing border illegally
HARLINGEN — An Iraqi family was caught within miles of the Rio Grande after crossing the border illegally, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman said today.
The family of five was caught about 7:45 p.m. Saturday near U.S. Highway 281 in Pharr, said Oscar Saldana of the Rio Grande Valley sector of the U.S. Border Patrol.
Computer searches revealed no ties to terrorism, and the family was being processed for deportation, Saldana said.
“They were run through our databases. No derogatory information came back,” he said.
Saldana said the family was in the custody of Customs and Immigration Enforcement as of today.
Saldana confirmed the capture after an anonymous tip was phoned in to the Valley Morning Star newspaper.
He said he could not disclose whether there had been similar apprehensions of Iraqi nationals within the sector.
He said he also could not say whether the family claimed they were coming for religious reasons, as did 11 Iraqis caught with illegal passports last week in Northern Mexico.
“I can only tell you they were processed for removal proceedings,” he said.
The 11 Iraqis were arrested at the Monterrey, Mexico, airport, headed to California.
None appeared on terrorist watch lists, and they told authorities they were Chaldean Christians trying to get to California were they would request asylum, an immigration official said.
They were being held at an immigration detention center in Mexico City on charges of using false documents.
Chaldean Christians have a sizable community in southern California and frequently try to enter the United States through Mexico, saying they face persecution in Iraq.
