There is Kourani. But there are others who are known to have sneaked over U.S. borders - from both Canada and Mexico - since Al-Qaeda began the campaign of bombing American targets in the mid-1990s that culminated in the 9-11 attacks.

NINE MORE TERRORISTS

Kourani got into Mexico during the height of this Al Qaeda campaign, in February 2001, by paying a $3,000 bribe to an official in the Mexican consulate in Beirut, court records show. Then, on Feb. 4, 2001, a now-shuttered Tijuana-based smuggling ring that had moved hundreds of other Lebanese nationals drove him over in the trunk of a car.

Texas Sheriffs Say Terrorists Entering US from Mexico

(by Kevin Mooney, CNSNews.com) - 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.
Although many of the non-Mexican illegal aliens are fluent in Spanish, Gonzalez said they speak with an accent that is not native.

It is funny how people against "illegal immigration" want to deport all the Mexican immigrants but, let's be real; you can deport all the illegals you want, they will keep coming across Americas borders until we actually do something about our borders. Like trying to take water out of a sinking boat. Water will keep coming in unless you fix the hole!
Ike proved that you can deport Millions of people based on fear along with some random raids and deportation. Oh, it can be done

You have serious issues. But at least you created a good example of a straw man argument.

Speaking of shooting, I hope my new Bushmaster gets here soon.

Retorting to personal attacks is a sign that one has lost the debate.

You're the one suggesting to "shoot the babies". That is very disturbing to me. Why don't you address JDubsmom's post about the Al Queda members they have caught going across the Mexican border?

It was a question directed to Arizona, he suggested we have a "shoot to kill" order for anyone crossing the border.

Why do you want to shoot the people crossing the border? Should we also shoot the babies?
You cannot compare the number of Canadians illegally here with the number of Mexicans and Central Americans illegally here.

Don't shoot anyone. Don't deport just the Mexicans. Humanely deport anyone who is here illegally no matter where they're from.

Fair enough?
