8 Syrians Captured At Mexican Texas Border Trying To Enter U.S.
While the administration attempts to double down with threats, name calling, and arrogant bluster, eight Syrians were apprehended on Monday, November 16, 2015.
According to the sources, the Syrians were in two separate “family units” and were apprehended at the Juarez Lincoln Bridge in Laredo, Texas, also known officially as Port of Entry 1.
Obviously the news that Syrians are attempting to bridge our southern border should be of concern to all.
Border Patrol agent and NBPC Local 2455 President Hector Garza told Breitbart Texas, “Border Patrol agents who we represent have been contacting our organization to voice concerns about reports from other agents that Syrians crossed the U.S. border from Mexico in the Laredo Sector.”
Agent Garza further stated that in matters as sensitive as Syrians crossing the border from Mexico, it would be highly unlikely that federal agencies would publicize it or inform a broad group of law enforcement.
He did say that Local 2455 are taking the reports seriously and that they “will be issuing an officer safety bulletin advising Border Patrol agents to exercise extra precautions as they patrol the border.”
What seems apparent by these apprehensions is that a new dimension has been added to the equation of Syrians attempting to sneak into the country, in that our southern border is perhaps our weakest link in border security and lacks any real security deterrents.
