KPHO-TV NEWS ^ | 1-30-2006

Posted on 01/30/2006 10:14:15 AM PST by Cagey

MEXICO CITY Mexico says its arrested four Iraqis who were trying to sneak into the United States without the proper documents.

Mexico's Attorney General's office says police -- acting on an anonymous tip -- found the four aboard a bus in the northern city of Navajoa (nav-ah-HO-. That's about 375 miles south of the Arizona border.

The statement says the Iraqis were in Mexico illegally.

Officials are investigating the background of the four and trying to determine how they got into Mexico.

Many undocumented Iraqi nationals have been captured in Mexican territory en route to the U-S border. None have been found to have had any links to terrorism.

Just doing the probable terrorist attacks that Americans won't do. I am so fed up with Bush and the GOP's inaction on the border.

I wonder if they tried to rip off someone in the process of getting into the country. Terrorist aren't exactly honest people.

I thought the Mexican government believed in "derechos humanos" for migrants. I'm not sorry that they did but what's up with them violating these poor Iraqiis human rights?

US: Hey Mexico, we gotta do something about all these border crossers, there might be terrorists mixed in with them and the people are really pissed that we aren't doing anything but lip service.

Mexico: OK, we'll toss you guys a bone that the media will like. How about we "catch" some Iraqi's? We'll get it set up for next week.

US: Great! We need it appear that we're both doing something.

Mexico: You got it! BTW, can you guys ease up on our troops doing the drug smuggling? We lost a Hummer in last week's firefight.

US: Yeah, sorry about that. Those were Texas lawmen, not US military, they're a bit harder for us to control, so be more careful next time.

Mexico: Thanks for the warning!

Aren't these 4 just "day laborers" who are trying to better themselves? I think Mexico should give them a drivers license and a map so they can travel safely.

Was it only a joke then? I was told yesterday by a Mexican that the government WAS going to hire illegals to build the wall.

*PING!*

MEXICO CITY Mexico says its arrested four Iraqis who were trying to sneak into the United States without the proper documents.
Mexico's Attorney General's office says police -- acting on an anonymous tip -- found the four aboard a bus in the northern city of Navajoa (nav-ah-HO-. That's about 375 miles south of the Arizona border.
The statement says the Iraqis were in Mexico illegally.
Officials are investigating the background of the four and trying to determine how they got into Mexico.

Apparently, Mexico takes Illegal Infiltration more serious that Jorge Arbusto and La Hacienda Blanco!

We don't do this if we catch Illegal here in America!

Oh, let me clarify....Mexicans get a pass...it's the OTM's that get investigated!

My best guesses...either the Iraqi's didn't pay off the right people/have enough to pay off the right people, OR it's a smokescreen by Mexico to take the heat off the Border Issues!

How the US Gub'Mint reacts in the media will be the key to figuring out which it is...

Wow, they arrested a total of four illegals headed for the US. That's probably as many as they have arrested since Texas became a Republic.

Didn't I read somewhere, there was quite a large Iraqi population in Mexico? (mostly Christians) Perhaps the Mex. officials just rounded up a few of these guys and falsely charged them with crimes. Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

I wouldn't be too quick to condemn Bush and the Congress for inaction on the border. They did approve the 700 miles of fence along the CA-Mex border. There will be more.

The portion that did get built shut down the on-foot illegals. The Drug Cartels are forced to tunnel unter the fence.

Am I right?
