A former senior supervisor and manager for the Immigration and Naturalization Service says it’s curious that so many people from nations where terrorism is rampant, such as Afghanistan, take on another national identity when they cross the border illegally into the United States.

“Why would individuals seek nationality in countries plagued by poverty and violence if that’s what they seek to escape?” wrote Dan Cadman at the Center for Immigration Studies on Monday.

“One answer might be that they wish to gain proximity to the U.S. border while masking their origins,” he said of research that found that hundreds of illegal border crossers were linked to a variety of other nations, even though they all “are Afghans by birth.”

He said of the illegal crossers caught during fiscal 2013 alone, those who were Afghan by birth but identified by other nationalities included 268 purportedly from Mexico, 10 from Honduras, eight from Guatemala, two from El Salvador and one each from Colombia, Costa Rica, Ireland, Nicaragua and Pakistan.

The research cited by Cadman, a former INS/ICE official with 30 years of government experience, came just as the issue of terrorists crossing into the U.S. through the porous southern border with Mexico has become a point of contention.

As WND reported Tuesday, the Washington Post’s “Fact Checker” column charged a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate falsely claimed the jihadist group ISIS was collaborating with Mexican drug cartels. The Oct. 9 column by the Post’s ombudsman, Glenn Kessler, gave “Four Pinocchios” to Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark, who is in a potential upset election that could unseat Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark.

Kessler cited Cotton’s statement at a tele-town hall Sept. 29.

“We now know that it’s a security problem. Groups like the Islamic State collaborate with drug cartels in Mexico who have clearly shown they’re willing to expand outside the drug trade into human trafficking and potentially even terrorism,” Cotton said. “They could infiltrate our defenseless border and attack us right here in places like Arkansas.”

Kessler wrote that he traced the statement by Cotton, which he called of “dubious provenance,” to a July 4 WND story that quoted WND senior staff writer and former Defense Department analyst Michael Maloof.

Maloof had said ISIS “may be working to infiltrate” the U.S. with the aid of transnational drug cartels, citing the violent Mexican criminal gang MS-13 as a highly likely candidate for the partnership.

“MS-13 already are in over 1,100 U.S. cities, and, as a consequence, the infiltration capabilities are very, very high and the threat from them can be sooner rather than later,” Maloof said in the July 4 story.
