Terrorists crossing AZ border into U.S.?

Quote:
PINAL COUNTY, AZ - On a single day in April, in a special cell block deep inside the Pinal County Jail, nearly 400 inmates sat awaiting trial or extradition after being detained trying to cross the Arizona border from Mexico.

Only about half of them were actually from Mexico.

The cell block, owned by Pinal County, but contracted with the Department of Homeland Security, is a way station in the immigration process, where inmates are held after they are detained by the Border Patrol or Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

But it’s where the inmates are from that causes concern for some critics and lawmakers.

Yes Sen. Kyl, illegal immigrants come from all over the World [News flash] and through all ports of entry...Many, many other than in the Southwestren US.

On more point, I found inetresting, is when the reported stated that Mexico would not accept Non-Mexican aliens...Why would the reporter[as educated as his is] expect Mexico to accept aliens for Jordan or Iran? International aliens fly in planes when deported...kinda adds up when you have to deport thousands upon thousands.

NBC (I think it was Dateline, but not sure) did a story on illegal immigration 4-5 years ago, and interviewed a coyote who said people from the Middle East pay $30,000-$40,000 to cross the border. I find it hard to beleive that a poor, impoverished peasant, just looking for a better life, can come up with that kind of money.

I understand many of them fly to Cuba, then on to Mexico as tourists.

If we have an attack here on our soil and they find out the terrorists came up..
Through Mexico then will they really tighten the border?

I agree. Hasty judgements benefit no one. You're quite correct in ststing that Middle Eastern illegal immigrants MAY not be terrorists...

The other day, I ran some errands around town. I stopped off to buy a pillow case for my bed; next I purchased a toy plastic pistol for my 4-year old nephew; and then I stopped off at the sporting goods store where I bought a black ski mask (which I tried on, then forgot to take off).

On the way home, I stopped off to make a quick deposit at my bank. What a mistake!...I got dirty looks, the 'cold shoulder', and even got 'bawled out' by a teller....I felt SO unwelcome. Just as you pointed out that 'just sneaking across the border illegally, in and of itself, doesn't make one a terrorist', it's also true that 'just because you enter a crowded bank wearing a ski mask, carrying a pillowcase, and brandishing a toy gun, does NOT make you a bank robber'....

Once again, the folly of 'hasty judgements'....you cannot judge by appearance.

As far as I'm concerned, ALL illegals entering the US across our land borders should be considered "out of work landscapers, dishwashers, and fry cooks", and treated as such...NOT terrorists. And if they're carrying bombs, or a map of the Pentagon, or a diagram of the New York subway system.....well, there might be a legitimate reason for that, too.

I don't think we should consider the possibility of terrorists entering the US illegally, until we know all the facts. Until then, as far as I'm concerned, they're all just potential lawn-mowers.

Great, very funny. Some posters here do not seem to understand that their constant sympathy and sad explanations just hurt their masqueraded cause.

Rush to judgement or not, we do not need any more illegals coming across our borders? we have enough of troubles with the currents ones already here,. we do not need any more illegals of any Race or Religion. Something must be done now, about the ones already here, if we fail to do something now, this will always be a crucial problem facing our borders and the US. I don't care how nice some of them may seem, look, if they are coming here by illegal means, they can go right back where they came from! and take that to the bank.
