"We do have a national security concern here..there has been intelligence out there that al-Qaeda has looked at that...the chaos on the border...looked at the vulnerablities."
Sigifredo Gonzalez the Sheriff of Zapata County has been following the developments and is convinced that a dirty bomb could easily be smuggled across the border, suggesting that if, "people can smuggle three thousand pounds of dope in here," there is no barrier to smuggling a large explosive device in a similar manner.
