Agents nab Pakistanis with terrorist connections crossing U.S. border

When the U.S. Border Patrol nabbed two Pakistani men with ties to terrorism at the U.S.-Mexico border in September, it marked just the latest instance of illegal immigrants from so-called “special interest countries” using the southern border as a point of entry into the country.

Muhammad Azeem and Mukhtar Ahmad, both in their 20s and from Gujrat, were caught Sept. 20 by agents south of San Diego and just over the international border from Tijuana. When agents checked their identities through databases, they got hits on both of them: Mr. Ahmad popped up as an associate of a known or suspected terrorist, while Mr. Azeem’s information had been shared by a foreign government for intelligence purposes.

Both men had been processed two months earlier by immigration officials in Panama, suggesting they took advantage of smuggling networks or other routes increasingly used by Central American illegal immigrants to sneak into the U.S.

It makes no difference. Obama will trade them for another deserter.

And at the moment they are detained, fifty others slip by.

I think it's a ploy "hey we are catching terrorists as they try to enter" taking the spot light off the thousands of immigrants they want to bring in

1 The MSM will remain silent on this o that most Americans remain ignorant of it.
2 We will just send them back to their home country so they can try again.

Maybe we need to try the death penalty on terrorists caught entering the country. It won't stop them, but it might slow them down!
