New leaked report stressing problems of porous U.S. border

An intelligence analysis report from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency that was recently leaked, reveals a painful picture of the number of immigrants that are illegally entering or attempting to enter into the United States from over 75 different countries.

The mass flood of illegal immigrants from Mexico isn't the only problem that is caused by the porous U.S. border. Individuals from Ebola infected countries and terrorist hotbeds have also come through the poorly controlled U.S. border.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The report is broken down into two categories, the Office of Field Operation (OFO)-which reflect anyone who turns themselves in at an official U.S. point of entry or anyone caught while being smuggled at the points of entry and the Office of Border Patrol (OBP)-which reflect anyone being caught or turning themselves in to a Border Patrol agent between points of entry or within an interior checkpoint.

Be a light in the darkness, act now with "prayer and action."

These numbers do not included numbers taken from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the report reveals the apprehension numbers from 2010 through July, 2014.

The report shows that most smuggled immigrants from Syria and Albania enter the U.S. through Central America, and that North African and Middle Eastern immigrants enter from the European Union.

There is one significant revelation from the report, nationals currently suffering from the Ebola outbreak in Africa have been caught attempting to sneak across the border, and 71 individuals have either been caught or have turned themselves in from that region of the world between January and July of 2014.

In 2014, over 1,443 individuals from China were caught trying to sneak in, and another 1,803 were caught or turned themselves in. The report indicates that this is a result of the Chinese crackdown on Islamic terrorists in that nation.

Almost 30 Pakistanis were caught, 13 Egyptians, four from Yemen. Individuals from Somalia and other terrorist hotbeds were also caught while attempting to enter the U.S. illegally.
