2 Of 11 Missing Egyptians Surrender In N.J.

POSTED: 4:20 pm EDT August 9, 2006 MANVILLE, N.J. -- Two of 11 Egyptian exchange students who failed to report for their college program in Montana after entering the United States surrendered to police in New Jersey on Wednesday, the FBI said.

"In response to hearing in the media that they should turn themselves in to the nearest police station, they did just that," said Steven Siegel, a spokesman for the FBI's Newark office.

The students are not suspected of any link to terrorism, he said. They turned themselves in at the Manville police headquarters.

They were being held on immigration charges. Their names were not released.

Earlier in the day, one of the other missing students was arrested in Minneapolis, the FBI said.

Were they upset about missing their month-long English class in Montana?

They turned themselves in, which is to their credit, but it might be they are only doing so knowing that the entire law enforcement community in the United States is looking for them.

We get plenty of inquiries about the maintenance of a pipeline but will we get an inquiry of who vetted them for the student visas in the first place and how well or poorly our control procedures worked in this case? I wonder if the Jersey Girls will press for this? ROTFLHLMAO

Thanks, onyx. Sure would like to know the "rest of the story". I'm sure they have a perfectly good explanation for why they spent all that money to come to America for a college course and all eleven decided to split up and ?? (sarc)

They were being held on immigration charges

Is it me, or does that phrase seem ironically strange?

Maybe it is as they say but I hardly expected to hear our government or the media report that they caught a terrorist just in the nick of time that had smuggled weapons and was part of a plan to cause mass damage. Instead, I expect they missed their plane, got lost , were scared etc.

The point is they are ONLY here to take a month-long class in English. Nothing more.

It is not even a semester enrollment in university. Quite frankly I don't know what Montana State is doing since this is clearly not a semester-related course (is it a second session summer class english second langues course?). Anyway these guys missed it big time so they have no reason to be in the US period.

This is BS. These clowns didn't "accidently" disappear FOR A MONTH. They knew damn well where they were supposed to be.

Holy crap, what does it take for the feds to take this stuff seriously?

They have probably already planted their bombs and want to get back to Egypt before they go off.

Sure it's not like any of my friends took their college money and got drunk instead of going to class. if i was from egypt and could get out for a month you would find me in the nearest bar to the airport - and i don't even drink! ;-0

Maybe this is just a dry run to check out the effectiveness of our immigration tracking and catch procedures?

If so, we flunked the test. Chances are we never would have picked them up unless they turned themselves in. We probably don't even have photos on them. The others will probably show up in other parts of the country, when/if they turn themselves in.

Jail time followed by deportation would be most appropriate for these guys. Anyone entering the US from Arab nations should be photographed, finger printed and made to periodically report to authorities on their whereabouts. Call it profiling, but this is what we should be doing.

What happened?! Was his English (and his mapreading skills so bad) he couldn't tell the difference between Montana and Minnesota on the map? At least he headed west, unlike the other two dopes who decided to hang out in Jersey.

They may have correctly assumed that, because of intense media exposure, they could be viewed as too much of a security risk for the people they were working with.

Better to be deported than executed.
