“Oorah! Now manos arriba, muchachos!” Fake Marines busted

To say that the illegal aliens and their coyotes attempting to enter the United States are resourceful is becoming more an understatement each passing day.

Up against these men and women trying to sneak in to the country are the men and women trying to keep them out of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Service. Quite often they are combat-hardened veterans of the sandbox in the Middle East, like the agent identified as “S. Smith“;

An alert plainclothes U.S. Border Patrol agent who previously served in the Marine Corps foiled a brazen attempt by 13 illegal immigrants and two suspected U.S. smugglers to enter the United States by asking the driver a simple question that every Leatherneck knows: When is the Marine Corps’ birthday?

On Nov. 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of the Continental Congress, according to the U.S. Marines’ website. Formal recognition of the event, however, did not occur until 1921. Prior to that year, it’s unclear whether any celebration was held.

But every Marine is taught to remember that historic date — and the incorrect answer tipped off Border Patrol agents at the Campo Border Patrol Westbound I-8 checkpoint on March 14 near Pine Valley, Calif.

Another agent later noticed that passenger Jose Guadalupe Ceja Jr., a suspected smuggler, seemingly did not understand English. Ceja and the driver of the white van both wore Marine uniforms bearing nametags reading “Lopez.”

I’d hate how many times this ploy of theirs actually may have worked, but I’m glad there’s some alert Devil Dogs watching our nation’s borders.
