In this video series, Project Veritas reveals the undeniable truth that the borders in the United States are not secure. James O’Keefe was able to enter the United States illegally without being stopped or questioned by anyone. By crossing both the Rio Grande from Mexico and Lake Eerie from Canada, Project Veritas has shown us that our elected officials are lying to us when they say that our borders are secure. In the video below, James O’Keefe explains the investigations in detail.
James O’Keefe as Osama bin Laden crosses border from Mexico
James O’Keefe showed just how easy it is to cross, undetected, into the U.S. from Mexico. Project Veritas traveled to west Texas where the border is just a muddy sliver stretch of the Rio Grande River. O’Keefe encountered no security or border patrol of any kind and was able to walk the 15-20 feet of knee high water from Mexico into the U.S. with ease. O’Keefe even found a metal foot bridge allowing easy (and dry!) passage across the border. Despite the claims of many to the contrary, our borders are not secure, and if James O’Keefe can cross into the country undetected, that means that drug smugglers, gun runners, and even terrorists can do the same. O’Keefe dressed up as the world’s most notorious terrorist and donned military camouflage and an Osama bin Laden mask and crossed the Rio Grande into the U.S. in this video.
"ISIS terrorist" crosses Canadian border on Lake Erie into the US
In this video, James O’Keefe exposed the lack of security along the U.S. border with Canada. In the follow-up to the investigation that featured O’Keefe crossing the Rio Grande disguised as Osama bin Laden, this investigation illustrates the lack of border security by simulating a terrorist infiltration across Lake Erie and into Cleveland, Ohio.
In the video, James O’Keefe is dressed as an ISIS operative to prove how easy it would be for a terrorist to sneak across the Canadian border into the U.S. Not only was O’Keefe dressed in full terrorist garb, but he takes it a step further and travels across Lake Erie with fake bags of ricin and clothes infected with the Ebola virus on the eve of the 9/11anniversary. O’Keefe successfully crosses from the Canadian side into the U.S. undetected by the U.S. border. There were no Border Patrol officers, no ICE teams, and no DHS personnel to prevent this supposed ISIS terrorist from crossing into the U.S.
The national political debate regarding the border changed as well. People actually began to focus on the possibility of Islamic militants crossing into the U.S. through the Mexican and Canadian borders following the release of Project Veritas’s video. This was best demonstrated when John McCain used James O’Keefe’s video as a form of evidence to further enhance his argument against the border insecurity.
- “U.S. Border Patrol was nowhere in sight. Even Osama Bin Laden could cross.”
US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid:
- “The border is secure.”
Sheriff Arvin West, Hudspeth County, TX:
- “If you think four strands of barbed wire is securing the border the I guess it’s secure.”
- “I am about to cross a 20-foot wide river and cross into the United States just like many illegal immigrants do.”
