ICE Raid At Dulles

25 08 2008

According to the Washington Post 42 workers suspected of being in the country illegally were detained at the Dulles International Airport.

The agent in charge said that “There’s no indication that any of the aliens were involved in any terrorist activity at all.” Most of the detainees where Latinos and we know that they don’t fit the profile for terrorism.


Aren’t airports sensitive locations for terrorism, how is it that people are not screened before granted access to such important security areas. I don’t care if they tell me that they only had access to a certain construction area, once in it is easy to move from one place to another without being detected.


I also heard that they checked these people because the “seemed”, “looked” like their legal status may have been questionable, in other words they looked Latino.


It worries me when I hear stories like this, because I feel like we are not being protected and the target of Homeland Security might be a bit off.
