    Terrorist Threat On Border With Mexico

    http://www.wsbtv.com/2investigates/23434381/detail.html

    DOUGLAS, AZ --
    The U.S. Border Patrol uses choppers, ATVs and horses to patrol the 2000-mile border between the Southeastern U.S. and Mexico. Agents say most of the illegals caught crossing are from Mexico or South America. Still, they say thousands of people caught are classified as O.T.M.'s, which stands for "other than Mexican". They report that includes hundreds of people from nations that sponsor terrorism. Channel 2 Action News anchor Justin Farmer traveled to Arizona to view a detention center near Phoenix. He viewed records that show illegals in custody from Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan and Yemen.

    Farmer talked to an Arizona rancher who didn't want to be identified because he's afraid of the Mexican cartels who smuggle drugs near his property. He said he found a Muslim prayer rug on his ranch. "This is one more indication that there is a whole lot more than just a few Mexicans coming into the U.S.".

    A recent congressional report on the border threat confirmed members of Hezbollah have crossed the Southwest border. It shows photos of military jackets with Arab insignias found on the border. One depicts a picture of a plane crashing into the twin towers in New York City.

    Dave Stoddard was a border patrol agent for 20 years. "The American public has been kept in the dark about this issue," he said. "In my experience, for every one apprehended, at least 10 escape apprehension."

    The congressional report also revealed the route Middle Easterners take to get the United States. It showed they travel from Europe to South America, then to the tri-border region. That's where they learn to speak Spanish. The report said they then travel to Mexico and blend in with other illegals.

    Law enforcement officials believe one of the world's most wanted terrorists may have traveled into the U.S. in 2004 by coming through the mountains on the Mexico border. Federal agents confirmed Adnan Shurkajumah spent time in Atlanta just prior to Sept. 11th, and left on a bus. He is a Saudi Arabian pilot and bomb expert with a $5 million bounty on his head. In 2004, Shurkajumah was one of seven Al-Qaida members agents were looking for after they were spotted in Central America and believed headed to the United States through Mexico . Federal agents now say Shurkajumah seems to have disappeared.

    Link that has a list of people caught in the last two years broken down by country. (This is really scary!)

    Besides Middle Easterners and more Chinese than I would expect sneaking into this country, one thing I noticed was that Mexico wasn't even on the list! How can that be?

    This is rather disturbing for you Americans. I had heard that Mexican Drug Cartels had aligned themselves with the Middle Eastern terriorist groups. So it would seem effective for them to come through the rather unguarded Mexican Border.

    Thank you ! And our national news coverage seems to be focused on Joran .... This is disturbing !
    While Joran Van Der Sloot might be a serial lady killer, I would like to see some coverage on this important issue.

    Check the links on this page which shows how many were Mexicans and how many were OTM (other than Mexican) although this report is for just one day 4/15/10.
