And now a small trickle is heard on the Middle East terrorists infiltrating the U.S. and Mexican border. It is not enough that Arizona has had to contend with illegal immigrants and the crime associated with drug cartels, but now there are Iran-associated Hezbollah terrorists who are beckoning entry, if they have not already helped themselves in the back door already.
Myrick outlined a complex set of potential threats and evidence of their existence. She said “Iranian agents and members of Hezbollah” are thought to be learning Spanish in Hugo Chavez-run Venezuela before trying to obtain false documents to enter the United States as purported Mexicans. She said Hezbollah, known for its tunnel-digging skill, could be receiving drug money from cartel operations in exchange for help forging better tunnels across the U.S. border for trafficking.
Myrick cited the opinions and findings of former intelligence officials and others in her detailed letter. One of them was a “high-ranking Mexican Army officer” whom she said believes Hezbollah could be training Mexican drug cartels to make bombs.
“This might lead to Israel-like car bombings of Mexican/USA border personnel or National Guard units,” she wrote.
Underground Threat: Tunnels Pose Trouble from Mexico to Middle East. Time. An interesting description of how crude to how complicated and advanced the tunnels can be, especially when financed by big money from drug cartels.
So it should come as no surprise to anyone in America, that it would certainly be mutually beneficial to drug cartels to have the Middle East know-how to build tunnels across the border, so drugs could pass with ease, and for terrorists who could enter seamlessly to wage jihad in America at will.
So why is it that the federal government does not want to enforce its own laws on border protection (to protect the privacy of illegal immigrants)? And how come it wants to sue the state of Arizona for trying to enforce the federal laws in place already? And why aren’t the rights of Americans to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, free from the dangers of foreign invaders who seek to bring harm?
