    Mexico Nabs 2 Iraqis Near U.S. Border

    Wednesday, June 29, 2005

    MEXICO CITY — Mexican agents in Tecate captured two Iraqis who had hoped to sneak into U.S. territory without proper documents.

    Federal authorities say Samir and Munir Yousif Shana (search) told investigators they were contacted by a person in their hometown of Baghdad, who said he could smuggle them into San Diego.

    The two have relatives in San Diego.

    Federal agents yesterday arrested the pair, along with two accused Mexican immigrant smugglers and a youngster, in the Paso de Aguila district of Tecate.

    The Iraqis said they met the accused smugglers in Tijuana, then accompanied them by bus to Tecate. The group was walking toward the U.S. border when they were apprehended.

    Haha!

    Anyone else see the irony in the Mexican officials nabbing illegals with hopes of crossing into the US border?

    Those names "samir" and "munir" sound like Chaldean names. Chaldeans are Christain Iraqis, NOT MUSLIM. There's a BIG difference there. Most likely, they are trying to escape Iraq and get into the US to have better lives, not plan terrorist attacks.

    I dont think any christains, no matter where they're from, would want to fight for Osama bin Ladin. :neener:

    But if they were muslim, well, I would be a little suspicious.

    God bless them if they are escaping from Iraq rather than coming to do us harm. We'll have to wait for more facts to come out. If I were sneaking in to Iraq, I think I'd go by Mohomad. Muslims or Christians, it shows that Iraqi nationals can come in through Mexico while we send troops to guard the Iraq/Syria border. Now that's ironic.

    Doubt they're terrorists. Terrorists would have had enough money to bribe their way through the Mexican authorities. :cuss: :cuss: :cuss:

    I'd guess it's a public relations effort.

    The point isnt that these individuals are terrorists, its that the southern border clearly can be used for people of ALL NATIONS to enter this country without any kind of screening whatsoever.
