Are Our Borders Secure?
Not to distract from the main point of the story of Iraqis fleeing the chaos caused by our invasion to this country, but the first few paragraphs gave me pause:
Assad’s desperate flight from Iraq began on foot.
For days, he trekked from Iraq to Turkey and from Turkey to Greece. He slipped through remote rural villages and crossed a river’s rushing waters to escape the violence that had left his cousin dead and his father in hiding.
Finally, after paying smugglers to get him on flights to Spain, Brazil, Guatemala and Mexico, he joined the crush of Spanish-speaking migrants on a bus ride to America’s doorstep.
Fortunately, Assad immediately went to the border patrols and asked for asylum. But still, how easy could it be for Al Qaeda terrorists to slip through our borders like that?
