How Many Terrorists Are Coming?

Reader comment on item: No American Muslim Terrorists? [A Reply to Spencer Ackerman]

Some important questions in this regard are not even being asked (publicly) but would help shed considerable light on our national security situation.

Given that there is a large flow of illegal immigrants entering our country from Mexico, and given reports that some of those entering our country illegally across the Mexican border are from Middle Eastern Countries, WHAT PERCENTAGE OF ALL PEOPLE APPREHENDED WHILE ENTERING OUR COUNTRY ILLEGALLY ARE FROM MIDDLE EASTERN COUNTRIES? Surely the Border Patrol and our government keeps such records. If not, surely they should.

I have once posed this question to a staffperson in the office of a Congressman who sits on the Intelligence Committee. I received a non-answer. Perhaps when enough voters demand an answer to this question we will receive one. Would Mr. Pipes care to address this question through his writings and forum? His efforts and a response in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
