Where’s Homeland Security?: Superbowl Exposes HUGE HOLE @ US/Canada Border

By Debbie Schlussel
More negative security implications from the Super Bowl. Not only are Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials working full-time for NFL Properties and ignoring immigration and money-laundering in Michigan for the week, but maybe Customs & Border Protection (CBP) top brass is also. We like their inspectors/agents. It’s the leaders we question (remember Daphiney Caganap?).

Detroit’s Ambassador Bridge: Homeland Security MIA on Superbowl Week

This morning, we got this VERY DISTURBING e-mail from a concerned trucker regarding glaring absence of CBP customs border inspectors–until 300 feet into Detroit–at the Detroit, Michigan/Windsor, Canada border (part of which can be blamed on DHS authorities kowtowing to the Lebanese-American bridge owner and refusing to challenge the current logistics):

I cross the border into the States a few times a week in my truck. Usually at Port Huron.
I went across Windsor to Detroit yesterday and observed something. I can drive into Windsor over the bridge and get about 300 feet into America. There were no inspections, cops, border guards, radiation detectors, barricades and even toll collectors. I could have anything in my truck and nobody would ever know until I’m in Detroit when I get to the U.S. border guards. Before I reach them and any type of inspection is done, I looked on my map and realized I am only 3000 feet away from Ford field.
On the radio I kept hearing that the baseball All-Star game was used as a trial run for security. I wonder if someone else also used it as a trial run to check out security?

Like we said, if you’re a terrorist money-launderer or illegal-alien smuggler, this is your week to get the job done, unfettered.

George W needs to be impeached. What is it going to take to get people to realize that GWB does not care about the sovereignty and security of the United States.
We have Mexican troops sporting 50 cal machines guns and importing drugs in broad daylight, Ice refuses to deport illegals, we got the Ice Queen hold meetings and looking ppretty in pink, Abu Moskowitz is confiscating t-shirts and hobnobbing with the NFL but America is at risk at having a mushroom cloud over a major American City.
What Homeland Security?
This is just pathetic

The ONLY good thing that will be in Detroit on Sunday besides the DELECTABLE Debbie will be the Steelers…who’ll win 24-17 or better.

That email is BS. The bridge is nowhere near Ford Field for one thing. It’s at least 5-7 miles away from the stadium. The other thing is that you go through customs once you’re off the bridge. There is no exit to bypass it. You corraled from a two lane bridge through into the customs area, and then you can enter the States. The tunnel is the same way. You cannot in any way get into the city without passing customs. The tunnel is right next to the RenCen and about a mile from Ford Field. Take a look at google maps using the hybrid selection. What it won’t show you is that the tunnel is underground until you hit the customs area. No where to get off and slip past customs.
ACTUALLY, I’VE RECENTLY TRAVELED ON BOTH, AND THE TUNNEL IS ACTUALLY MUCH, MUCH CLOSER TO FORD FIELD. HOWEVER, AT EITHER (TUNNEL OR BRIDGE), A TRUCK WOULD HAVE PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITY TO RELEASE POISON GAS OR RADIATION BEFORE REACHING CUSTOMS INSPECTORS, WHICH COULD REACH FORD FIELD. (I AM NOT A SCIENTIST, SO MAYBE THEY WOULD DISSIPATE FROM THAT DISTANCE, BUT I’M NOT SO SURE.)
THE FACT IS THAT NEITHER THE BRIDGE NOR THE TUNNEL WERE BUILT WITH 9/11 CONCERNS IN MIND, FAR BEFORE AND FROM IT. WE REALLY NEED TO HAVE INSPECTIONS ON THE CANADIAN SIDE OF THE BORDER BY U.S. PERSONNEL. AT SOME POINTS AND TIMES, THEY DO THIS. BUT THEY AREN’T IN DETROIT HERE AND NOW.

Where’s the GWOT? Do we only care about phone conversations, i.e., tapping “overseas to US” calls, but not border crossings? A blind person could make it from Mexico or Canada into the US.
