MEXICAN NATIONAL SIMPLY HOPPED ON A SCHOOL BUS TO ENTER THE U.S.
Forget climbing fences, burrowing tunnels, or taking a boat to illegally enter the United States – simply hop on a school bus. At least, that’s what an 18-year-old Mexican national did in order to successfully bypass security checkpoints near the Columbus port of entry in southern New Mexico. He was eventually arrested in Deming, NM, after police received a tip about the unauthorized hitchhiker.
The man now faces several immigration violations from the U.S. Border Patrol, including illegal entry and fraudulent use of a document. However, the big unanswered question is why was a school bus belonging to a New Mexico public school district on the Mexican side of the border in the first place?!
LAWMAKERS CLAIM JUSTICE INSPECTED OBSTRUCTED ‘FAST AND FURIOUS’ INVESTIGATION
According to a letter written by Rep. Darrell Issa and Sen. Charles Grassley, the inspector general of the Department of Justice undermined and obstructed a congressional investigation by releasing secret tape recordings that corroborate allegations of misconduct in “Operation Fast and Furious.”
Justice Inspector General Cynthia Schnedar failed to even listen to the recordings before handing them over to the actual targets of the investigation and in doing so compromising Congress’ ability to get to the truth and potentially prosecute those responsible for selling thousands of weapons to the Mexican drug cartels.
