I've gotta say that this is just one example of the many times the media has gotten things - and people - into America. The borders between Mexico and southern California, Arizona and New Mexico are in great need of border patrol officers. Every night, hundreds of illegal immigrants cross from Mexico into US land...but who else is crossing with them? And even though some border patrol officers watch them cross the border, they are unable to do anything about it because they are greatly outnumbered and lack sufficient back up. I remember right after the attacks in '01, Mexico became a focal point for reporters/military/government to watch for terrorists coming into the country among Mexican aliens...apparently, that has slacked off.
