THEN... AND NOW.


"When will President Bush get serious about border security?"
Nearly one year ago this first report posed that question. Today we are STILL waiting for the answer (see more reports below). Problem is, that this year the question has to be posed to the Dhimmicratic Congress as well as to Jorge Bush... and we all know what that means... the gutting of the Patriot Act, no funding for border fence (while Mexico enters into a special tourism agreement with Iran), blanket amnesty for all criminal illegals and special treatment for passive-aggressive Muslim crybabies... and Border Patrol Agents who have to choose between jail time or doing their job.
The All-American Nightmare.
THEN:
Recorded telephone conversations authorized under the U.S. Patriot Act and a court order captured the La Feria truck driver referring to the 20 men as "gente de Osama" or "Osama's people."
Mexican drug cartels smuggle in terrorists, too

The January 2005 arrest of Noel Exinia and Cesario Nunez appeared to be just another Drug Enforcement Administration bust on the border, until court documents in the case are examined more closely.
A few days before their arrest on federal cocaine trafficking charges, Exinia and Nunez moved more than a quarter-ton of cocaine from Mexico through the Rio Grande Valley and on to New York City, the men told officials.
Nuñez, 33, pleaded guilty to a drug conspiracy charge in September. His sentencing is set for Thursday.
Exinia, 35, eventually pleaded guilty to the same charge. His sentencing is expected in March.
Court documents filed in Exinia's case make frequent references to his position in the notorious Gulf Cartel. The paperwork also contains details of a December 2004 incident in which he tried to secure transportation for 20 Middle Eastern "terrorists" waiting to enter the United States from Monterrey, Chiapas and Puebla in Mexico.
Recorded telephone conversations authorized under the U.S. Patriot Act and a court order captured the La Feria truck driver referring to the 20 men as "gente de Osama" or "Osama's people."
During a Jan. 5, 2005, telephone conversation, Exinia described the men as "Iraqis," ages 25 to 33, who were willing to pay $8,000 for transportation past Border Patrol checkpoints in South Texas and into the U.S. interior.
Exinia mentioned that eight of the men were coming to Progreso, northwest of Brownsville. He said they were "dangerous" and "really bad people." They carried guns and made the smuggler that was helping them "afraid."
Court records show that Exinia tried to employ a pilot-- who turned out to be a confidential government source-- to fly the men from the Valley to the northeastern United States.

Mexican Police Detain 4 Iraqis in Border City of Tijuana
12.24.06
MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Federal police and immigration agents detained four Iraqi citizens in the border city of Tijuana on suspected immigration violations, after the Iraqis failed to present proper visas.
Police told the government news agency Notimex that the Iraqis, including a child, were found Saturday at a hotel in Tijuana, across the border from San Diego. All four were taken to an immigration detention center for possible deportation.
It was not immediately clear whether the Iraqis were linked to Chaldean Christians, who have a sizable community in Southern California and frequently try to enter the United States through Mexico, claiming they face persecution in Iraq.

Iraqis are entering U.S. through Mexico
Most are Chaldeans; smuggling probed

TIJUANA – U.S. and Mexican immigration agencies are investigating the arrival of small groups of Iraqis at the border in the past week and their possible connection to smuggling organizations.
Baja California agents and Mexican federal immigration officers found a group of four Friday night at a Tijuana hotel.
In addition, two groups of about two or three Iraqis turned themselves in earlier this week to U.S. inspectors at the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry, asking for political asylum.
