Texas rancher Mike Vickers found an odd book on his property: an Urdu-to-English dictionary. Urdu
is the official language of Pakistan, and is spoken in Muslim areas of India and parts of Afghanistan.This is certainly an unusual item to find on the border of Mexico, which is a Spanish-speaking country. From The Blaze
While local ranchers have to contend with torn-up fences, broken water lines, contaminated wells and robbery on a daily basis from illegal immigrants streaming through, a Texas Border Patrol agent told The Blaze there is “no doubt” that among the hordes of Central Americans are also crossers from Pakistan and Afghanistan, raising significant national security concerns.
“We have limited resources,” said the agent, who was not authorized to speak publicly. “It’s frustrating for all of us and there’s no doubt that we have OTMs [Other Than Mexicans] coming from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia and other parts of the world that we are very concerned with — these guys won’t be turning themselves into Border Patrol like the family units or children.
I expect we’ll see more the OTMs of special interest this year and next, now that they know they can get in easier and they won’t be turned back home.”
“We’ve found Korans, prayer rugs and many other unusual items at the border that certainly raise concern,” the agent said.
While many on the left describe the crisis on the border as “humanitarian,” the real crisis is the fact that people from all over the world – including the Middle East – now have the ability to cross freely into America – without proof of identification.
