Al-Qaida operative may make border run

This is the ever present danger of "open borders" and it's going to get nothing but worse.

PHOENIX - Federal law enforcement agencies along Arizona's border with Mexico are on alert for a suspected al-Qaida operative who may be working his way north to the United States from Honduras.Susan Herskovits, spokeswoman for the FBI's Phoenix office, said Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, a 29-year-old Saudi national, was reportedly seen in Honduras recently.

The man was one of a number of suspected terrorists being sought by the United States recently unveiled by U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, the spokeswoman said.

Because the border between Arizona and the Mexican state of Sonora is a popular smuggling route for illegal immigrants the alert for El Shukrijumah includes both the American and Mexican states, she said.
