-CAIN: “You don’t need to worry about immigration. The only people who illegally cross the border are hardworking folks who want better lives for their families. They certainly aren’t terrorists, so stop being a racist and demanding that we seal our southern border. Why do you hate the ‘brown people’ so much? What’s wrong with you?”

In it, the Command’s J-2 intelligence directorate acknowledges that, yes, our border is an issue, it’s dangerously porous, and extremists cross it with ease.
As the Washington Free Beacon reports:
Sunni extremists are infiltrating the United States with the help of alien smugglers in South America and are crossing U.S. borders with ease, according to a U.S. South Command intelligence report. MORE
