The 'Surge' Across Our Southern Border...are they potential terrorists?

With all the news about the so-called budget crisis we still have an immigration crisis...and its getting worse as we speak.  We've been dealing with this illegal immigration thing for quite some time and to a guy like myself the problem can go away overnight and yet nobody in Washington seems to care...with Obama the number one sinner!  Also, there is not enough outcry from citizens in states located away from the Mexican border.  People should be screaming in the ears of their congressional representatives from such places as Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, Michigan, Maine, and all the other states not located in the soutwest (and not beginning with the letter 'M')From previous reports we've seen increasing numbers of OTM's (Other Than Mexicans) coming across from Mexico.  Many of these OTM's have been identified as middle easteners and potential terrorists.  According to the following report there's a surge in OTM's identified as 'from India' ...and what if they were 'from' the Kashmir area of India were Pakistani trained terrorists abound...certainly something to think about.  ~  Norman E.

Illegal Immigration from India Through Central America and Mexico Surges

There is a surge of undocumented immigrants trying to enter the United States but their background isn't what you might expect.
The sluggish economy has reduced the number of undocumented immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. But authorities have noticed a spike in the number of migrants from India over the last two years.
Smugglers using many of the same tactics as drug cartels are running an 11,000-mile pipeline that moves human cargo from India, through Central America and Mexico and over the Rio Grande into Texas.
With fewer Mexicans and Central Americans crossing the border, smugglers are eager for more "high-value cargo" like Indians, some of whom are willing to pay more than $20,000 for the journey.
Between October 2009 and March 2011, the Border Patrol detained at least 2,600 undocumented immigrants from India, a dramatic rise over the typical 150 to 300 arrests per year.
