Border Patrol Arrests 13 Illegals Wearing Marine Uniforms


SAN DIEGO (AP) — Border Patrol agents in San Diego say they have caught 13 illegal immigrants wearing U.S. Marine uniforms.

Agency spokesman Michael Jimenez says that agents found the group after approaching a suspicious parked van with altered U.S. license plates on March 14. Two U.S. citizens who were with the immigrants were arrested on suspicion of alien smuggling. Three of the illegal immigrants are being held in federal custody as witnesses and the others have been returned to Mexico.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is handling the investigation. Navy investigators referred calls to Washington, D.C., and no one could be reached for comment late Tuesday.

Authorities do not know how the group obtained the American military uniforms.

    In every country in the world that would be considered espionage. 60% of those countries would execute them…..bet we give them a free ride back over the border. What a pathetic county we live in!!!

  2. jeffro says:

    Alien smugglers should be given a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison. Maybe that way they’ll stop doing it. Enough is enough.

  3. Isaac says:

    When will the Federal Gov’t start doing their job? How many illegals got in wearing uniforms? Why do we continue to be politically correct when it comes to the security of our borders? I agree with the previous comments, mandatory jail @ hard labor, execution for any smugglers who kill citizens and especially any border agents or police.

  4. federal fools says:

    how many anchor babies they drop those few hours they were in the u.s?

  5. Steve Wimer says:

    L.A. just laid off 1,000 teachers. That means 30,000 anchor babies won’t get a decent education.

    If this admistration gets any more ignorant about whats going on in and around this country, we may as well give it away all together at one time. The Obumbler administration is there to help any foreign counry out there. But when it comes to ours, his back is turned. But i guess when he’s not playing golf or soccer he’s flying around to [as he said] the 57 states to get his picture took with all the czars he let take over and build mosques in our country in the last 2 years.

  7. tim says:

    Hey they are violating those immigrants rights! That’s freedom of speech! At least Obama got to be on ESPN with his NCAA tourney picks… I look toward to that every year!

  8. Robert says:

    Too many racist people commenting

    1. VICandGEM says:

      i totally agree theres too much SAD stuff

    2. rjsmitty says:

      People that think they are superior then others and believe that laws don’t apply to them are truly the racists

  9. Sandi A says:

    Like we need more of them?

  10. Lenny says:

    Just happy to hear that the majority of the aliens have been returned.

  11. Leslie says:

    Yes, those hispanic buddies that died for you overseas defending your right to make stupid comments.

    1. Astonished says:

      Hey, since they want to look like our military heros, let’s give them the chance! Sew them into those uniforms so they don’t come off and drop them into a Taliban stronghold! If they make it back to the U.S. alive we send them back to Mexico instead of putting them in prison!

  12. somemonkeylove says:

    sneaking into the USA should have a severe penalty, with no plea bargaining only then can we control the border.

  13. Shane says:

    I have an idea you liberal jack wagons,go live with them across the border,or better yet put them up in your homes,You people kill me,go away get a life,you goofs.

  14. ILLEGALS says:

    Yeah, it’s obvious when 13 sore thumbs jumps out of bushes & their Marine uniforms were all wet & dirty.

    Probably confuse the heck out of Border Patrol agents as they call commanders if there’s marine training exercises near the border.

  15. rjsmitty says:

    The flagrant disregard of the laws that govern this great country just makes me sick. If people want to come here they must go through the legal and proper way . These criminals that brake the law by coming here illegal just continue to disrespect our laws because they believe that they are above them . We must have harsher punishments for these criminals

  16. I AM MEXICAN AND I AM ANGRY says:

    So US citizens face stiff sentences if they kick a dog or cat but illegals breaking the law over and over again just gets free meals & a free plane ride or bus ride back to Mexico?

  17. Jorge Ruiz Rodriguez says:

    YESH!!! IF WE MAKE IT TO AMERICA, WE GET FREE WELFARE! LAID-OFF AMERICANS CAN SAY WHATEVER THEY WANT TO SAY BUT WE’RE HERE TO STAY AND YOU PAYING FOR OUR FUTURE.

    THANK YOU AMERICA!

    COME AGAIN!

    WELFARE!

    YES!

    1. SWATK9 says:

      It is also you Hispanics that are committing the most crimes. Look at California’s Most Wanted. ALL HISPANIC.

      http://ag.ca.gov/wanted/mostwanted.php?fid=mostWantedFugitives_2010-02

      Not only do you leach off our welfare system, you cost us to keep you fed and clothed in jail.

  18. Lupe says:

    Keep on hating haters. Free Welfare for all.

    1. James Matsukov says:

      Have another kid Lupe, you will get more money. Oh yeah, you do that naturally.

    2. Saber 1 says:

      Welfare was meant as a service for people in need, not as a career. Lupe, just hit print and you spit out a little $pic. You probably need a draw string on your canyon to keep your guts from falling out. Your a poor excuse for a human being. Even the legal Latinos are ashamed of you and your kind of leaches. Drug screen for welfare people and birth control/sterolization.

  19. Johnny Chingas says:

    White trash are just angry because how can they qualify for Welfare or low paying jobs if they spent most of their time in Jail on Meth or alcohol related charges? You’ld need to be home or attend the Welfare office regularly in order to continue your welfare claims.

    You’re disqualify if you end up in jail for stupid drugs/alcohol offenses.

    1. Robert says:

      I agree with you. They should send all the methhead crackers to fight the Taliban they are all worthless and it doesn’t matter if they die

    2. Relaist58 says:

      Source: http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/prisons.htm
      Prison population at midyear 2008
      4,777 per 100,000 BLACK MEN
      1,760 per 100,000 HISPANIC MEN
      727 per 100,000 WHITE MEN

      Blacks were three times more likely than Hispanics and five times more likely than whites to be in jail

  20. So what! says:

    welfare = free $$$$$$ = american dream

    say all you want but we living the american dream.

    you need us here for our cheap labor coz we do jobs u don’t want.

    so shut the hell up white people.

    1. Relaist58 says:

      Illegal immigrants have taken jobs that teenagers coming out of High school used to take 20 years ago Pedro.

      I sincerely hope all the illegals are rounded up and deported and their homes, cars and other posessions bought here are auctioned off to legal citizens.

      And I really don’t give a rat’s @$$ if Pedro and Maria’s kids are in school while they are jailed, the kids can be taken in and exploited by their own kind or they can wander the streets until they are picked up and deported too because it is the parents fault for being criminals and going along with their daily life exploiting America.

    2. Saber 1 says:

      Well said Relaist58,

      You have made it jobs no one wants by working for nothing. You have damaged the economy by working for nothing. I have a Master Degree and my income has slid to $12,750.00 a month. Please take a night class at the local JC to learn to spell and have better command of the English language.
      By Pedro.

  21. Relaist58 says:

    Criminals breaching our borders and in military uniforms! Line them up and shoot them on site.

    No other country in the world would tolerate this.

    1. Ramalamma says:

      Yeah, they would just shoot and kill innocent civilians and ask questions later. I hear Libya is looking for some new civilians…..

  22. Ramalamma says:

    They must have been illegal immigrants….wait…..Oh my gosh, they actually WERE!! It’s a Christmas miracle, for once I can say it and actually mean it! Weeeee!

    As stupid as it was to attempt to smuggle across the border wearing Marine uniforms, it was crafty!

  23. Relaist58 says:

    I sincerely hope all the illegals are rounded up and deported just like in Arizona and their homes, cars and other posessions bought here are auctioned off to legal citizens.

    And I really don’t give a rat’s @$$ if Pedro and Maria’s kids are in school while they are jailed, the kids can be taken in and exploited by their own kind or they can wander the streets until they are picked up and deported too because it is the parents fault for being criminals and going along with their daily life exploiting America.

  24. WH Jones' Liberal Brother says:

    “Blacks were three times more likely than Hispanics and five times more likely than whites to be in jail”

    You fail to recognize that race isn’t important when it comes to crime–it’s poverty. The poor are more likely to be in jail. People of color are more likely to be poor. THAT’S the real causal factors.

  25. No slack says:

    This is a federal crime.
    Federal prison is in order.
    Let these people spend time with there” Marine buddies” on a work farm.
    Deportation should not be an option.

  26. Trisha says:

    Just drive the beans like cattle, put them on a barge and nuke them! Nuke Mexico after that too!

    1. joe says:

      Lets nuke Pacoima also.

  27. Brown&Proud says:

    you idiots why in the f*ck would you assume those 13 people are criminals?! how do you know they weren’t here to work their ass*s off for a better life!? f*ck what these racistas have to say! STAY UP MI LINDA RAZA!

  28. Henry says:

    send then to Marine Boot Camp
