The situation at
the border now poses a grave threat to national security.
Mike Scioli of the U.S. Border Patrol confirms that the Tucson sector
of the Border Patrol is facing a worsening problem with Mara
Salvatrucha, a Salvadoran street gang that now controls the flow of
arms, drugs, and illegal aliens into the U.S.
members of the violent gang were collared last week in Tucson and
have been brought into custody since President Barack Obama assumed the
oath of office on January 20, 2009.
the Salvadoran gang is bringing more than guns, dope, and Mexican
peasant workers over the border.
the wake of 9/11, Mara Salvatrucha attracted the attention of
top al Qaeda officials, who realized that the gang could be used to
smuggle operatives and weapons into the United States.1 An
agreement was forged between the terrorists and the gang-bangers. In
exchange for safe passage across the border, al Qaeda – - through its
cells in South America – - agreed to pay the Maras from $30,000
to $50,000 for each sleeper agent they managed to smuggle into the
country with bogus matricula consulars.2
consulars are official
identification cards that are issued by the Mexican government through
its consular offices. The cards verify that the bearers are Mexican
citizens who are living outside of Mexico with the government’s

to US officials, these cards pose a grave threat to national security.
Steven McCraw, assistant director of the FBI’s Office of Intelligence,
told a House Judiciary Subcommittee: “The ability of foreign nationals
to use the matricula consular provides an opportunity for
terrorists to move freely within the United States without triggering
name-based watch lists that are disseminated to local police officers.”
matricula consulars are easy to obtain. In Los Angeles, the
going rate is $90; in New York City $150.
of the alliance between al Qaeda and Mara Salvatrucha prompted
Honduran officials, including Security Minister Oscar Alvarez, to adopt
a zero-tolerance law that makes membership in the street gang
punishable by twelve years in prison. Mara members responded to
this legislation by beheading scores of victims and leaving notes on
the bodies for the Honduran government. One note read: “Idiots, the end
of the world is approaching.”3
to border patrol officials, including Sheriff D’Wayne Jenigan of Del
Rio, Texas, thousands of Special Interest Aliens (SIAs), with the help
of Mara Salvatrucha “coyotes,” have made their way across the Mexican
border and into the land of the free and the home of the brave.
SIAs come from countries that pose national security concerns: Saudi
Arabia, Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Somalia, Yemen,
Jordan, Lebanon, and even Iraq.
routes used by illegal aliens to enter the U.S. have become littered
with discarded Muslim prayer blankets, pages from Islamic texts, and
Arabic newspapers. Law enforcement officials have named such
passageways “terrorists’ alleys” and a street leading north from the
city of Douglas, Arizona, as “Arab Road.”
