Danger On S. Texas/Mexico Border...Missionaries Killed, Three Afghanis Detained

"There is a perception that the border is worse now than it ever has been. That is wrong. The border is better now than it ever has been." -Janet Incompatano, Obama Regime Homeland Security Chief, 3/25/2011

Oh really, Janet?

Here's two stories detailing the border insecurity in my old stomping grounds in South Texas.

KGBT Channel 4 Harlingen is reporting that a missionary couple from Amarillo was found killed south of Monterrey, Mexico.

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico says two Americans have been slain outside the northern industrial city of Monterrey, an area plagued by drug violence.

It identifies them as John and Wanda Casias.

The embassy says the former Amarillo, Texas, couple's family has been notified and it is providing relatives consular services.

The embassy hasn't confirmed reports that the killing happened Tuesday. Its statement provides no other details.

Last month, three Afghanis were apprehended in the Rio Grande Valley town of Mission (KRGV-Channel 5).

Three people from Afghanistan are in Border Patrol custody in the Valley. Border Patrol acknowledges they apprehended the three Afghanis in the Valley.

They were found in two different groups. One was found south of Mission by the river. The other two were found in a stash house north of Moorefield Road.

Samuel Freeman, a political science professor at the University of Texas Pan American and expert on U.S. foreign policy, says it's unusual for Afghanis to show up in the Rio Grande Valley.

Freeman says the three could be drug runners. He says there's a huge pipeline of opium from Afghanistan to the U.S.

CHANNEL 5 NEWS submitted a Freedom of Information request to find out more information on the three Afghanis detained in the Valley. Once we get that information, we'll bring it to you.

Drug runners? Just how do we know they're not al-Queda linked terrorists?
