WASHINGTON – Two more Iraqis with false Bulgarian passports were detained by Mexican officials in Monterrey – bringing the total to four this month. Wisam Gorgies, a 34-year-old man, and Rana Nazar Peyoz, a 26-year-old woman, reportedly flew from Madrid and landed in Monterrey, according to reports in two Mexican newspapers today.

Following questioning, the pair admitted they intended to reach the United States. They were taken to Saltillo in the state of Coahuila, for final determination of their status.

Mexican officials said the are investigating "a network that could be made up of Mexicans operating in Greece who are selling false Bulgarian passports for $10,000 to European and Middle Eastern citizens."

Earlier this month, El Universal, a daily in Mexico City, reported two other Iraqis,

The Mexicans know what they are doing, they don’t want the door closed.

Border Security IS National Security

If you are against securing the border...you are against national security.

Time for politicians to stop the lying...if you are against border security you are against national security

Mexico doesn’t want any outsiders going through there and taking Mexican jobs over here.

Gosh, how heartbreaking, if only they could have made it across the U.S. border, they could have joined their fellow illegals and started to obtain benefits, medical care, wages under the table, *plus* the Jorge W. Booosh PARTY FUN PACK, with a PlayStation 2 and the hot *new* game "Beat That Virtual Fence!"

Calm down... these were Iraqui Christians (Chaldeans) headed for Detroit or San Antonio. Ironically, because Saddam was an equal-opportunity dictator, religious differences didn’t play much of a role in Iraqi’s old system. The Chaldeans, who have been in Iraq since the times of the Apostles (St. Thomas went to what is now Iraq), are now being terribly persecuted, and — being Iraqis, are having a very hard time finding refuge. They do take these “desperate measures” and deal with gangsters.

The reason so many end up in San Antonio (via Monterrey) has a lot of do with christian charity by U.S. soldiers with connections to Mexico.

Right - I totally agree with you. I was just saying from their perspective, they don’t want them slipping through.

We took a cruise this month to the Mexican Riveria on the Golden Princess.

The security at the Mexican end at Puerto Vallarta was very intensive and professional at 3 observable levels to even get back to boarding the ship.

There was good security at the Mexican end in Mazatlan and Cabo.

We had to laugh, as the Mexican security people in Cabo searched the shore bound passengers from the Norwegian Cruise Ship, we weren’t checked nor searched until we got in line to board a tender back to our ship.

Before you first board a Princess Ship, your Passport is scanned and validated. As you enter the ship, you insert your new passenger card into a machine which apparently does a retinal scan and a picture without glasses or hat to add to the documentation from your pass port and other history. Then, you use that passenger card to get off the ship and back on. When you leave the ship at the end of the cruise, that card is deactivated.

Oooooooooooooooooooh but that can’t be because some of the so called “experts” on FR said that there weren’t any terrorists coming across the Mexican border!!!

“Where’s the fence?”

The idea of a Guest Worker program would be to catch folks like this looking to get into the US. Of course they could take their chances with the coyotes, but it sounds like they were going 'legit' so they'd have better cover and ability to move around.
