UN Warns: Mexican Border ‘Global Pathway’ to US for Illegal Aliens from Horn of Africa

Brandon Darby, Breitbart, July 7, 2013

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) recently released a report, “Transnational Organized Crime in Central America and the Caribbean,” that identifies both Mexican cartels and street gangs as conduits for individuals from Africa and Asia entering the U.S illegally. The report identifies the Islamic terrorist haven of Somalia as being one of the nations from which the illegal U.S. bound border-crossers are originating.

The UN Threat Assessment–which refers to illegal aliens as “irregular migrants”–states:

Central Americans are not the only ones being smuggled through Mexico to the United States. Irregular migrants from the Horn of Africa (Eritrea, Somalia, and Ethiopia), as well as South Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal, India), China, and other African and Asian states are being smuggled through Central America.


The UN report reveals that it costs approximately $7,500 for an individual to reach the U.S. from Somalia illegally. The report further reveals that once someone from Africa or Asia enters Central America, their journey into the U.S. follows the same paths and methods used by Mexicans to enter the U.S. illegally.
