For a 'better life' of terror?

Thanks CQ. Maybe having read the Mexican government's Guide for the Mexican Migrant, the already wiley naughty jihadi's are getting some suggestions on how to infiltrate the United States.
WASHINGTON - FBI Director Robert Mueller told Congress on Tuesday that people from countries with ties to al-Qaida have crossed into the United States from Mexico, using false identities.

"We are concerned, Homeland Security is concerned about special interest aliens entering the United States," Mueller said, using a term for people from countries where al-Qaida is known to be active.
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.

Mueller provided no estimate of the number of people who have entered the country in this manner.
President Bush's amnesty plan, which I wrote about here, would give a temporary worker's card to anyone who'd be willing to have their picture taken and have an identity created for them. Afterall, are we going to require a Mexican birth certificate to prove they have an identity somewhere? This could possibly give newly minted Abdul Gonzales more legitimacy in his U.S. travels, compared to the terrorist alternative of an alias that may be hot on certain watch lists.

I'm not being dramatic when I say that as a country at war, what does it say about strategy when we're not willing to secure a perimeter at our border and practically invite them to commit acts of war on the American people.

If the Left wasn't smearing their doo doo on the idea of displacing a few rabbits and uprooting a few cacti, we'd employ a few masons and electricians to make a complete border fence.
