McALLEN Another reminder of why we need a secure border emerged this week, as U.S. Border Patrol officials confirmed three Afghan nationals were detained in the Rio Grande Valley - an increasing "hot zone" of cartel invasion and violence against American ranchers.
Border Patrol confirmed the detentions, but would not say where or when they occurred.
Enrique Mendiola, assistant chief Border Patrol agent for the Rio Grande Valley sector, said that human smugglers see moving people besides Mexican nationals as a "business opportunity."
"Average smuggling rates for other-than-Mexican nationals far exceed those of Mexicans and Central and South Americans," he said in a statement.Security experts are increasingly concerned about increasing alliances between international terrorist organizations and the Mexican cartels.
Mendiola noted the Department of Homeland Security is working with governments in Central and South America to "identify and disrupt transnational smuggling organizations and routes, that sometimes can span the globe."
Michael Braun, former DEA Chief of Operations, recently testified at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Feb. 2, 2012 that Iranian-backed terror group Hizbollah - - which murdered 241 Marines in Beirut in 1983 - is supporting Mexican cartels to gain access to their networks for border entry, human trafficking, money laundering and forged documents, and operations in 250 U.S. cities.
The goal? Exploit our porous defenses with terror cells - far easier than our ports and airports, thanks to the Feds' continued failure to secure the border.
Of course DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano tells us the border is safer than ever. And Barack Obama has mocked those who say the border is unsafe: Maybe theyll need a moat. Maybe theyll want alligators in the moat. Theyll never be satisfied.
However, a local news station last year uncovered evidence that the DHS was suppressing data - even from Congress - which showed that hundreds of individuals from terror-sponsoring nations had penetrated our border. Retired INS Agent Michael Cutler says that DHS is "covering up" this evidence...

I sure am NOT surprised. But let’s talk about universal health control and why ‘birth control’ is NOT part of that socialistic system. Dear LORD have mercy on US because we have hired the wisdom of fruit flies to rule over US.
You are much too kind. They are malicious stink bugs.
Nothing new. We’ve had OTMs crossing for years. About 8 years ago they found a jacket patch that was in Arabic.
They’re just coming to do the suicide bombings Americans won’t.
Was it a Freudian slip that you said “rule of us”, even though its true???
No it was not Freud that slipped through. The dark side is swarming into and over US by the malignancy of 'evil' desires by those we hired to rule of US. I can only guess that the PROUD GOP Establishment are too busy paying tribute to their 'golden bulls' of capitalISM. See so long as 'some' of US still maintain freedom of thought and movement the rule is not yet OVER US.
My 'fruit fly' reference is to the 'godless' evolutionarily of the 'scientific methodology', that forced GOD out of the public square and public education. They rejected HIM and now 'we' as a nation are clueless in the majority, what it means to have that 'Heavenly' protection. It sure is not because we are any better than the Afghan's when we turn our back on the Creator.
