The U.S. Customs and Border Protection known as CBP, and U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended two men who sneaking across the border. These were not the customary illegal aliens. They were not from Mexico or Central America. The CBP confirmed to Breitbart Texas that one Iraqi national and one Egyptian national were detained by Border Patrol agents after they illegally entered the U.S. from Mexico. Iraq and Egypt are hotbeds for terrorism. A source claims they were both males. There are more and more middle eastern men finding their way into Mexico. This presents a problem for the United States. Just last summer the Feds busted an Iraqi-Mexican drug cartel on the border of California.
A statement from the Border Patrol, agents from Lordsburg Station apprehended the two individuals at 2:15 p.m. along Arizona State Route 80.
“Records checks and interviews produced no derogatory information and the two individuals were placed into removal proceedings,” the statement said.
The border patrol did not reveal the exact location of the apprehensions. However, according to Breitbart, the CBP statement indicates the individuals made it more than 15 miles into U.S. territory before being caught. The area of the border where they crossed does not have barriers. This only underscores the immediate need for a wall along the United States/Mexico border line.
The area south of the border from where the individuals were apprehended is controlled by criminal groups working for the Sinaloa cartel. The Sinaloa is the most dangerous, and organized of all the other cartels in the region. It’s not these two from the Middle East were traveling in the area without the cartel’s knowledge or permission.
We don’t know much about what these individuals were planning to do, but we do know they were trying to enter the country illegally. We also know they were an Egyptian, and an Iraqi who were caught sneaking across the U.S. border. Both places are Islamic hotbeds of terror. Chances are they knew they wouldn’t make it into the U.S through legal channels. Their capture —as well as the documented dangerous behavior of other illegal aliens is just another example of why we need to get busy on building a border wall. It is also an indicator the Presidents Travel ban just might have deterred them.
President Trump is is aware and willing to acknowledge problems, and the dangers we face at the the border. Now we just need to let him do something about it.
