A flood of name changes from Arabic to Hispanic
Judicial Watch reports that the same Mexican drug cartels that violently smuggle their goods through the United States’ porous southern border are buying arms from radical Islamic terrorists and teaming up with them to distribute narcotics in Europe and the Middle East.
An alarming U.S. Department of Justice intelligence report reveals this dangerous relationship, lending credibility to what advocates of immigration enforcement-including a barrier along the southern border-have said for years: American national security is at risk.
In a July 2, 2008 report, the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Drug Intelligence Center substantiates the earlier DOJ report, which was released last year to little fanfare.
“Despite all the pronouncements of the administration that these networks and their funding is being traced, progress has been limited, and in certain circles of intelligence, they are nonexistent,” terrorism and security consultant Peter Brown warns.
Lending credence to Mr. Brown’s concern, an El Paso, Texas, law-enforcement report documents the influx of “approximately 20 Arab persons a week utilizing the Travis County Court in Austin to change their names and driver’s licenses from Arabic to Hispanic surnames.”
