Investigative Journalist: Afghan Muslims Bought Real Mexican Passports in MUMBAI

By Debbie Schlussel
Todd Bensman, a Texas-based investigative journalist and TV reporter who now works for the San Antonio Express-News, has long been known to federal agents as THE expert on non-Mexican nationals and how they come into America, South of the border. His excellent work has disproven the claim that few dangerous Muslims come over here through Mexico. He’s reported ad nauseam on suspected and known terrorists here on fake and real passports who’ve slipped in. A lot of the stuff you see or hear on cable news or in national newspapers originated with Todd’s scoops.
Yesterday, Todd sent me his excellent work from March, documenting how Afghans bought real Mexican passports in Mumbai. It’s important reading, especially given the Pakistani Muslim terrorist attacks perpetrated there, last week.
Todd wrote me:

You have to wonder what Mumbai has sent US. My story, which didn’t get picked up and was completely ignored, shows a route from there to Mexico and then the U.S., where real Mexican passports were on sale to anyone in South Asia!

Read his article.

Wow mordida (Spanish for bribe) and propina (Spanish for Tips) have come to Mumbai. Mexico is one of the most corrupt nations on Earth. Unfortunately it still has a caste system. For everything is for sale and has a price except the Catholic Church. There isnt a government official that wont take a bribe. Thankfully for Americans, there is no Muslim presence in Mexico or any other counties in South America.
Unfortunately as smugglers get more desperate this enticement of bringing in Muslims can not be ignored. Well we do have Janet Napolitano to save us from Muslim terrorists? The next fours years will be interesting to say the least.

I am wondering if these Afghans (and others who bought these Mexican passports) got ripped off given that Hezbullah probably can get unlimited amounts of Venezualian passports for free courtesy of Hugo Chavez.

“and has a price except the Catholic Church”
Heh. That gave me quite a chuckle. The Catholic Church is as rotten and corrupt as any other organization in Mexico.
Anyway, from the article:
“ìIf you’ve got a Mexican passport you’ve already crossed the bridge,î Conway said. ìAnd you can become part of the flood of people who cross into the U.S. If terrorists wanted to exploit the infrastructure in place, they can. It’s there.î”
Apparently, this retired FBI Assistant Legal AttachÈ isn’t very well versed in Mexican/U.S. border security. While a Mexican passport may be used to enter other countries in the world, for entering the U.S. is as useless as a library card. You need a Visa to cross the border, a Visa expedited only by the U.S. Embassy.
That article is completely useless. Of course, that doesn’t mean that they can’t cross the border in any other of the myriad illegal ways there are to do it. But it won’t be with fake passports.
