Typical Customs’ Entry Conversation:
CA: Why are you entering Mexico today, sir; business or tourism?
Jihadi: I am here to cross the border into the US and take an entry-level job away from a deserving citizen.
CA: Welcome to Mexico!
Please enjoy your short stay here.
You are free to go.
Your luggage and suicide vest will not need to be searched or declared.

They’ll just collect it roadside in the traditional manner.
