Terrorists Reap What They Sew

Congressman John Carter, R-Texas, has found a new area of concern for the nation's homeland -- uniforms worn by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents are made in Mexico:

If we're manufacturing uniforms in Mexico, what's to stop someone from walking across the border in a Border Patrol uniform? How do you know who are our guys and who are their guys?

Don't tell Rep. Carter, but Al Qaeda probably has the operational capabilities to sew a shirt and pants. If our border security can be fooled by the standard action-movie trick of taking someone's uniform, making the clothing in Dubuque isn't going to solve the problem.

Comments

Short but good article. Here in Arizona some of the Law enforcement agencies including INS have forign nationals working for them !?! Now I know that their loyalties are with the U.S.!? Keep up the good work.

I think these agents wearing a uniform made in Mexico is a good thing. It should help them remember that Mexico is supposed to be our friend. Don't we have borders open to free trade under NAFTA? It wouldn't hurt, either, if they knew a little of the history of the relations between Mexico and the United States.

Sometimes I think we are ruled by a Confederacy of Dunces. Congressman Carter may have found an image-enhancing issue to latch onto.

I wish that for once, just once, the agents who express these xenophobic concerns, would try to place themselves in the shoes of a Mexican national, and look at history through his eyes.

I think the Western and Eastern coastlines of the United States should be considered borders, too. To my understanding, they are woefully under-patrolled to protect the security of this country.

I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere along the line, Al Qaeda has investments in the garment industries of certain Middle Eastern countries. They could certainly manufacture garments cheaper than Dubuque could.

I like your phrase "...standard action-movie trick...". I think the present administration of this country has used a lot of "standard action-movie tricks" since 2001.
