Did three Al-Qaida members recently cross into the U.S. from Mexico? More evidence of why the border issue is a national security issue from WorldNetDaily.com:
WASHINGTON – In announcing the introduction of legislation aimed at preventing illegal aliens from getting driver's licenses yesterday, a North Carolina Republican member of the House of Representatives casually dropped a bombshell that went over the heads of most of the media covering the event – that three members of al-Qaida were recently captured trying to enter the U.S.
"This isn't aimed at any one race," said Sue Myrick, who is being mentioned as a potential candidate for governor of the state. "Our main concern is: Who's in our state? This is a critical issue today. They just arrested, down on the border, a couple of weeks ago, three al-Qaida members who came across from Mexico into the United States."
That's how she was quoted in her local daily – the Charlotte Observer. An audio recording of the event confirms the quotation's accuracy.
