"Terror-Linked Migrants Crossing Into U.S."

Quote:
TIJUANA, Mexico - A restaurateur in this border city ran another business smuggling Lebanese compatriots into the United States, some with connections to Hezbollah. A Sept. 11 commission staff report called him the only “human smuggler with suspected links to terrorists” convicted in the United States. But he is not unique, according to an Associated Press investigation based on government and court records and scores of interviews.

Many smuggling pipelines through Latin America and Canada have illegally channeled thousands of people from countries identified by the U.S. government as sponsors or supporters of terrorism.

The men flocked to the cafe under the sign with the cedar tree, symbol of their Mideast home. Here, in this alien border land, it was the beacon that led to an Arab “brother” who would help them complete their journey from Lebanon into America.

They would come, sometimes dozens a month over a three-year period, to find Salim Boughader Mucharrafille — the cafe owner who drove a Mercedes and catered to some of Tijuana’s more affluent denizens, including workers at the U.S. consulate only a short stroll away. His American customers were unaware that the savvy boss of La Libanesa cafe ran a less reputable business on the side.

Until his arrest in December 2002, Boughader smuggled about 200 Lebanese compatriots into the United States, including sympathizers of Hezbollah, designated a terrorist organization by U.S. authorities. One client, Boughader said, worked for a Hezbollah-owned television network, which glorifies suicide bombers and is itself on an American terror watch list.

Good to know that that critical resource of illegal immigrants is still being put ahead of national security.

Even better is that this administration, for all its terra warnings doesn't seem to give a half a shit about what's going on at the Mexican border. Not that any administration before it did either.

Proves the point that despite all the colored warnings broadcasted, nothing has really been done by this administration. It's all a fucking joke.

And this is surprising to you in some way, how?

Maybe the administration figures it will now be more cost efficient to bring the war on terror back here.

This shows what a bad joke the War on Terror is. They are not keeping terrorists out of this country. I thought that's what it was all about.

The Mexican border is a no win situation. Liberals will quickly label you racist while conservatives will quietly turn their heads so as to not discourage a cheap source of labor.

It is like complaining about tabacco subsidies.

Just look at the response to the "minutemen" to see the extent of the no-win aspects.
