(WASHINGTON TIMES) Haitian illegal immigrants are pouring into the U.S. at a rate of some 3,000 a month, blazing new paths and exploiting special policies and lax Obama administration enforcement to gain a foothold in the country, according to a secret government intelligence assessment.

Thanks to advice from family members already in the U.S., new immigrants are spreading out across the border, testing crossings in Arizona and Texas where they have been told they will have an easier time getting through, analysts said in a Nov. 17 bulletin from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s office of intelligence, which The Washington Times reviewed.

Perhaps most striking was the presence of an illegal immigrant from the Middle East who appeared to be attempting to sneak in along with a group of 50 Haitians.
