They were apparently headed to Guatemala, then into Mexico, with their final destination being the United States, crossing over our largely-unprotected border.
The Syrian men were held late on Tuesday in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, on arrival from Costa Rica, and had been planning to head to the border with neighboring Guatemala. The passports had been doctored to replace the photographs with those of the Syrians, police said.
“We received information from (fellow) police services that these five Syrians left Greece and passed through Turkey, Brazil, Argentina and San Jose in Costa Rica before finally reaching Tegucigalpa,” said Anibal Baca, spokesman for Honduras’ police.
Officially, Mexico has taken in only 30 Syrian nationals since September, according to El Financiero.
Of course, large numbers of foreign nationals from such countries as China and various Muslim nations are regularly caught by the Border Patrol, entering this nation illegally from Mexico.
Given the lack of cooperation from the vastly corrupt government of Mexico on border security, we can soon expect to see large numbers of so-called Syrian refugees infiltrating this country.
How many of them will be terrorists?
