Every day, immigrants illegally run across our southern border unchecked. Homeland Security officials are not as concerned with the ones from Mexico as they are with the ones who may be hidden within other groups — the ones our government refers to as OTMs, known as Other Than Mexicans, such as people from Central and South America, and countries like Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran. Nationwide, our government has lost track of 400,000 of these OTMs….
Val Verde County Sheriff D’Wayne Jernigan sees anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500 OTMs released into his community every month.
“At a time when we’re so concerned with terrorism in our country, we don’t know who is coming into our country. We don’t know. We don’t know. We don’t know who these people are,” Jernigan said.
In Eagle Pass, so many OTMs are being released daily to roam the streets, border patrol officers call it “OTM alley.”
“If Homeland Security is important, then this should stop immediately,” said Pepe Aranda, Maverick County judge.
