In 2004, KVOA Tucson ran an investigative report that Muslims/Arabs sneeking across the border in Arizona.  Source: Investigators: Terrorist Alley

I recently had communications with an individual from Arizona who alleges that there is no border control, period.   The individual pointed out that America has a large nuclear plant just west of Phoenix, military bases and a large population center.  Lets face it, Arizona is a “target rich” environment for terrorism.   A person can cross the border and be in Phoenix in less than 3 hours.

Imagine, it would take only one terrorist with a dirty bomb, or a full blown nuclear device or a vial of biological material to ruin the day of a large metropolitan population center. 

In March 2005, according to a NewsMax article, the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued a grim warning regarding special interest aliens.  Then FBI Director Robert Mueller testified before Congress that people from countries with ties to al-Qaeda have crossed into the United States from Mexico, using false identities.

Under persistent questioning from Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, Mueller said he was aware of one route that takes people to Brazil, where they assume false identities, and then to Mexico before crossing the U.S. border.

He also said that in some instances people with Middle Eastern names have adopted Hispanic last names before trying to get into the United States. Source: FBI Warns of ‘Special Interest’ Aliens

Turn the clock ahead until 2006, in September 2006, a man calling himself Miguel Alfonso Salinas was apprehended off a deserted highway near the U.S.-Mexico border. According to U.S. Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security documents that man was really from Egypt.

My questions are, what is DHS doing about this problem and are they handcuffing their Border Patrol Agents in regards to immigration enforcement?
