Aren’t white supremacists supposed to be against illegal immigration from below the border? Read this astounding story:

The Mexican-U.S. border is getting a lot of attention of late due to the politics and the realities surrounding it.

Although monitoring how illegal immigrants cross into various countries undetected is something that every nation has to face, what makes it even more difficult is when there are various criminal organizations that earn a pleasant income trafficking those that are desperate to enter.

In what may be called a “supreme” irony, the recent news reports show that a white supremacist group is part of that trafficking. Even though the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas claims they believe in a pure white nation, a member of the group in Texas, Cody Michael Matousek, pleaded guilty for smuggling illegal immigrants from Brazil over the border. And he’s not the first from the group to be arrested for migrant smuggling.

The Aryan Brotherhood is one of the largest and most violent neo-Nazi white supremacist prison gangs and organized criminal enterprises in the United States. They are responsible for numerous murders and other violent crimes.

But it seems, ideology is ideology and business is business.

If we review other reports documenting terrorists crossing into the U.S., it appears that with our current high security and controlled crossings, these events happen.

A comprehensive report by inewsource, investigative journalists out of San Diego, a primary point for illegal immigration, notes:

“Our most conspicuous finding is a pattern we identified in the history of America’s wall: As it became stronger and longer, illegal cross-border flows of people plummeted wherever the barriers were built. But they didn’t stop. Instead, migrants and drug smugglers took different paths — into the desert, into the ocean, into the sky and underground.

“’The wall simply ensures there will be ever more creative ways of getting around it,’ said David Shirk, a political science and international relations professor at the University of San Diego who studies immigration and crime along the border.”

However, the study also indicated that wherever a wall was built, “its value in curbing illegal immigration and crime … cannot be dismissed.”

These finding tell us that while there is no perfect system for overseeing those that may slip through the cracks – especially when you have internal criminal organizations willing to traffic human beings for pay.

Here’s a thought: How about if we clean our own backyard of our own criminals and domestic terrorists before spending so much of our national budget on putting up a fence that provides a false sense of security?
