This country’s biggest nightmare would be (is) the likes of Orlando Islamic terrorist, Omar Marteen, having enough security clearance to smuggle Islamic jihadists into the United States.

Over the weekend, as details emerged about Omar Mateen’s background, the biggest surprise was the identity of his employer: as we reported on Sunday, it was none other than UK-based G4S plc, the world’s largest security company, where Mateen had worked ever since 2007. But what was even more surprising, is that as we had also noted several days earlier, it is the same G4S that according to a Judicial Watch investigation was implicated in transporting illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and “releasing them without proper processing or issuing court appearance documents.”
As we wrote at the time, the government classified this specific set of illegals as Other Than Mexican (OTM) and in just that specific week around 35 were transferred 116 miles north from Tucson to a Phoenix bus station where they went their separate way. Judicial Watch was present when one of the white vans carrying a group of OTMs arrived at the Phoenix Greyhound station on Buckeye Road.
Furthermore, one specific security company contracted by the U.S. government was driving the OTMs from the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector where they were in custody to Phoenix. The firm is the abovementioned G4S.
The involvement of Mateen with a company that was directly tasked with not only capturing and transporting illegal immigrants, but also had taken far broader liberties with its mandate and was seemingly unloading them at will, raised many eyebrows, and led to various questions, chief of which was the following: could Mateen have helped illegals immigrants and/or potential terrorists cross the border.
