Texas Sheriffs Say Terrorists Enter Through Mexico
Cybercast News Service ^ | 08/21/06 | Kevin Mooney

Posted on 08/21/2006 8:14:42 AM PDT by Froufrou

The chief law enforcement officers of several Texas counties along the southern U.S. border warn that Arabic-speaking individuals are learning Spanish and integrating into Mexican culture before paying smugglers to sneak them into the United States. The Texas Sheriffs' Border Coalition believes those individuals are likely terrorists and that drug cartels and some members of the Mexican military are helping them get across the border.

Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez of Zapata County, Texas told Cybercast News Service that Iranian currency, military badges in Arabic, jackets and other clothing are among the items that have been discovered along the banks of the Rio Grande River. The sheriff also said there are a substantial number of individuals crossing the southern border into the U.S. who are not Mexican. He described the individuals in question as well-funded and able to pay so-called "coyotes" - human smugglers - large sums of money for help gaining illegal entry into the U.S.

I still hear people complain about the Canadian border, but this is a more likely scenario, IMHO.

Our northern border is a problem but we get actual cooperation from the Canadian government. Mexico on the other hand catches middle easterners, then releases them with instructions to go north.

I wonder if learning Spanishs isn't even more effective? Would they even have an accent? >:o(

And the government still hasn't closed the borders to illegals!
Time to expel all those from terrorist-sponsoring countries now!

In a perfect world, Mexicans would resent the bad name terrorists give them and annihilate them.

I (and others) have been repeatedly chastised on FR in the past for suggesting that terrorists might pay coyotes to smuggle them into the US through the southern border.

What has been explained to me, in detail, by fellow FRers, is that I am an idiot for being concerned about this. I am also a mindless "Border-bot" because I would like more security on the border.

Apparently, coyotes wouldn't smuggle in terrorists, because it would be really bad for business... if these terrorists ever blew up anything in the US, then the US would have to *really* crack down on the border, and this would make life miserable for the coyotes.

So, it is really the illegal immigrant smuggling trade, and the Mexican coyotes, that keep us safe on our southern border.

These law enforcement sheriff types don't know what they are talking about.

We can all sleep soundly tonight, knowing that Mexican criminals are keeping us safe from terrorists.

Terrorists crossing the borders?

Someone should notify the President. I'm sure he will want to close the borders immediately.

I've been chastised here, too, and I share your concerns. For one thing, I work for people who understand having illegals dying on their ranches near the border. And stealing from them, littering up their places.

These thugs have taken racial profiling and used it to their advantage. They not only look Hispanic, now they speak it. The only thing missing is the easiest to get: fake credentials.

These are just ordinary people coming to this country to conduct the jihads against Americans that Americans won't conduct.

It's nothing to lose your head over.

Regrettably, it may take that to wake up the GOP to their conservative base, whom they continue to ignore at present.

In this weird modern world, many times facts are stranger than fiction, and what may be considered satire today could turn out to be fact tomorrow. lol.

Ease up there. If you go back and read my post again (and the one I sent before) you'll see that I was being sarcastic as well. We agree.

Good article.This is not "new" news for many of us,but our elected officials for the most part refuse to acknowledge the problem of terrorists entering through Mexico.What will these politico's do when these "undocumented" terrorists begin to reek havoc in the US?This is one area where i feel GW has realy let us down.He may regret it.

'nobody' in MSM cares; Pres. apparently thinks illegals not a security issue.
even w/o terrorist acts, these illegals are ruining the socioeconomic basis of US.

You'd have to have blinders on to think it's a nonissue! They're all too concerned with who's coming and going from office, that's what.

LOL! Don't worry about it. Happens to me all the time.

And I simply can't believe how the border issue is being botched so royally by the administration.

This is going to come back on us and get many of us killed, I belive. And there is no excuse for it.

Just goes to show you how much the "will of the people" means to politicians - especially when an issue interferes with their pandering and vote buying schemes.

Pay no attention to the people behind the curtain! They're busy planning their own murders.

Lies! All lies! Jorge says they're just good moral family folks looking to do a day's hard work lazy American's won't. Kerry and Teddy say there's no such thing as terrorists, so that's good enough for me.

Yep; just preparing to kill the Americans that Americans won't do. </not_exactly_sarcasm>

No way. Family values! There were some underlings of some big shots that all went to El Paso for a few days just last week that all said no way a single terrorist is going to stroll over our unguarded chock-full-o-holes 2,000 mile southern border. They were dang sure and they said so! Lots of reporters asked them and they sad so. I was relieved. I am now safe.

"if these terrorists ever blew up anything in the US, then the US would have to *really* crack down on the border"



Another terrorist attack, even by someone who entered across our borders, will NOT result in a secured border. Fools are anyone not recognizing by now that Bush has an open borders agenda, national security be dammed.

If Bush had been willing to secure the border, he'd have done it on 9/12.

I am at a loss, myself. I saw him talking this morning and he was pretty blunt about the Democrat party wanting to "leave Iraq before the job is done. They're wrong!"
