Mexican Police Arrest Four Illegal IraqisTopics: Immigration and Border Issues
In breaking news, Mexican federal agents have arrested four Iraqis trying to sneak into the United States without proper documents.
Wasim Francis Schamoun and Ivan Yalda, both 23, and Refon Chlil Oraha and Thaer Salem Yelda, both 27, were found on a bus in the northern city of Navajoa after police received an anonymous tip. The Iraqis were in Mexico illegally. Officials said they were investigating the background of the four, who have family names that are common among Iraq's minority Christian community, and trying to determine how they got into Mexico. Up to now, there have been many undocumented Iraqi nationals captured in Mexico en route to the U.S. border, but none have been found to have had any links to terrorism.
Iraqis seeking refuge, or are they terrorists?
