Iraqi illegal aliens in Mexico! Oh my!

6 February 2008

Notimex is reporting on an Iraqi couple who were detained in Monterrey, headed for the United States on false Bulgarian passports.

OK, before my lunatic fringe right-wing readers get a hard-on, I better give ’em the “rest of the story.”

The 25 year old Iraqi man and 21 year old woman were just two more of the 28 Iraqi Christians who’ve been detained in Mexico while attempting to make it to the “mother of (some) exiles” north of the border.  Plenty of Iraqi Christians have already gone — especially to Detroit and San Antonio (helped by U.S. servicemen with Mexican family connections).

Note to Iraqi Christian would-be exiles.  You might be better off staying in Mexico, where you can — like other Iraqis — make a valuable contribution to your adopted country.  Except for a few things like people trying to kill you, and bombs going off, and foreign troops in the streets, Mexico isn’t all that alien a place to Iraqis.

But, if your heart is set on going on to the United States, do not — like this couple — claim that you just flew in from Madrid for a two day vacation.  And, if you’re using forged Bulgarian passports, try to learn a little Bulgarian.

Maybe they should, like other illegal aliens, claim “we are from France…”

I’m kind of surprised that Mexican immigration in Monterrey had someone who knew Bulgarian available.

    If this couple, who don’t seem to be very smart, can make it as far as they did with forged passports, imagine how easily a true trained terrorist could get into the U.S. Though you choose to make light of the situation, it is solid proof that terror cells could, and probably have, entered the U.S. through Mexico.

    No, Mr. Smallwood… I make light of you. I never make light of the plight of a religious refugees driven from their homeland by our invasion of their country.

    I did not mean you were making light of the couple, but of the fact that Iraqis were caught in Mexico with intentions of coming to America illegally. This couple could have just as easily been a pair of terrorists with bad intent.

    Eyes of Texas……..wouldn’t that be horrendous if terrorists made it through our southern border. Sure glad they can’t get it through Canada. Wait I think they already did on 911. Maybe that’t where the Border Wall should really go. Do we have time to move it.

    One border at a time until all are secure. The wall is really not the answer to the problem. More border agents and better technology to detect border violaters are needed. Yes, the 9/11 crew came through Canada and that should have awakened everyone to the fact that all our borders need to be secured. Our border with Mexico is the most violated and should be secured first to stop anyone, terrorist or illegal aliens, from entering unlawfully.
