"Arab terrorists 'are getting into the US over Mexican border'"

The Telegraph UK offers a report similar to the one in the previous post and previously covered here.

The exception is they do it from a completely gullible perspective:

President Bush has launched a drive to halt illegal immigration across America's porous southern border, amid growing fears that terrorists may be using Mexico as a base camp before heading to Arizona, Texas and California.

A string of alarming incidents has convinced Bush administration officials that lax immigration rules, designed to cope with the huge numbers of illegal entrants from Mexico, have become a significant loophole in the war on terror...

It's good to see the Telegraph picking up on this story, but perhaps they should take what they hear from the administration with the tiniest grain of salt.


One intriguing part of this story is that the immigration officers were ordered not to discuss the apprehension of arab illegals in the last few months. The flow of illegal this and that from mexico is more important to the current administration than staying in office. If they processed terrorists into the country, and a major series of bombings goes off soon, and their means of entry becomes widely known, the administration will have no ability to escape the blame for it. The peone power in DC will go splat into the mud of the rio grande, within months.
