Two Illegal Aliens have been picked up by ICE when it turned out that they did not have valid Social Security numbers. The men were working on construction at Travis Air Force Base which is a military complex and subject to strict security laws.
The pair have both been in the country more than ten years and have failed to apply for citizenship (and there is some doubt as to whether they speak English). It should worry everyone that they even managed to get onto the Base without proper ID checks, let alone gain access to plans for how the base is laid out.
Of course, these two are not foreign spies, but what about the next workers to come along? If w e are not even checking basic ID for workers allowed on to military bases, our national security is clearly at risk.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
After arresting Mejia and Nuñez, ICE has placed the men in expedited deportation proceedings, as both men have removal orders stemming from when they entered the country illegally over a decade ago.
Mejia is naturally upset. He told The Mercury News in Spanish, while detained at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center, that he has a good track record.
ICE told The Mercury News that the two men “will remain in ICE custody pending court proceedings and it will be up to a judge with the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review to determine whether they will be subject to removal from the U.S.”
