The government is planning to add concertino wire to additional fenced areas.The Border Patrol is completing installation of razor-sharp wires atop a 5-mile stretch of fence, a move that authorities credit for a sharp drop in attacks on agents by rock-, bottle- and brick-wielding assailants from Mexico. Critics say the prison-style fence is a menacing eyesore.  (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)

Bulk Of Stolen Border Crossing Passes Recovered In Mexico

The recent theft of 12,000+ border crossing passes could have turned into a big immigration and national security headache for the United States.

Fortunately, Mexican authorities have recovered 10,000 of the missing 12,600 immigration border crossing passes that were stolen last month from a semi-trailer in the northern part of Mexico.

According to Univision, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico put out an electronic alert to keep the credit card-looking passes from being used, and reported the theft to Interpol.

The  move by embassy officials must have worked, as the thieves were probably alerted that  the passes were compromised, and decided to deposit the stolen cards into garbage dumpster and leave the rest behind in an abandoned pick-up truck.

There are still 2000 passes missing, so expect U.S. Border Patrol officers to be on the look-out.
