Our open door along the southern border for people claiming to seek asylum is such a magnet for the world’s poor that a group of 116 people traveled all the way from Africa to Mexico to enter the United States. In video tweeted out by Customs and Border Patrol, the large group, identified as coming from Angola, Cameroon, and Congo (all desperately poor), can be seen wading across the water in the Rio Grande, some carrying children in their arms — an automatic entry into the United States under law that the House of Representatives refuses to change.

Following this, the White House tweeted out a second video and made the point:
There are billions of people in the world who want to get themselves into the United States and sign up for welfare benefits that are vastly richer than their average incomes at home, not to mention free medical care at emergency rooms, free schooling for their children, and all the rest of our generosity. Now that word has reached them of the open door, they are coming.
The Southern US Border is so porous even Osama Bin Laden can get across.
And to prove it James O’Keefe crossed back and forth across the Rio Grande in an Osama Bin Laden costume.
The investigation took place in Hudspeth County, Texas, at a crossing commonly used by illegal immigrants and drug smugglers.
Via Project Veritas:
Do you feel safe now?
Okeefe says in the video: “If the president or Senator Reid or anyone else tries to tell you that our borders are secure, they are lying to you.”
The Daily Caller reported:
Investigative filmmaker James O’Keefe exposes the U.S.-Mexico border’s vulnerability to terrorism in his latest undercover project, obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller.
O’Keefe’s Project Veritas video reminds viewers of recent statements by the president and Obama administration officials that the southern border is secure. O’Keefe then proceeds to Hudspeth County, Texas, to easily cross back and forth cross the Rio Grande wearing the costume of modern history’s most recognizable terrorist.
“I see no border patrol. I see no security,” O’Keefe said in the video before donning a bin Laden mask. “Thousands of people have stood in my footsteps right now. They’ve come from South America, Honduras, Guatemala, and they’ve all crossed the border. And if they can cross, anybody can cross.”
