has an excellent entry on Middle Easterners crossing through our southern border into the United States. He goes over the border patrol's silence because of pressure, the official position on the numbers, OTM's (Other Than Mexican's), terrorist threats and the current travesty of the catch-and-release
of illegal aliens that are caught.
Rob at Say Anything and PrestoPundit weigh in on this article from UPI
Immigration officials across the United States are aggressively tracking down illegal immigrants who have disobeyed orders to leave the country.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement has deployed 80 agents assigned to "fugitive operations teams" in 16 cities to find 400,000 fugitive immigrants in the United States, 80,000 of whom were ordered to leave the country after criminal convictions, the Arizona Republic reported.
In my opinion this is not enough. We need to secure the border or it's a worthless operation if they just go along with the current catch-and-release policy.
