Two "migrants" tried to break into a Marine Corps base in Virginia. One was a Jordanian national, the other was on the terror watchlist.

You guys want some more assurance that our border is secure and everything is hunky dory?

Well, here you go:


We've got a border that's about as secure as a wet paper bag!

Great times we live in, folks. Illegals are just hopping our border and going about their plans to break into our military bases.

No big deal,

The Marine Corps prevented two people from breaking onto a Marine installation in Virginia on May 3 and turned them over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The two people drove up to the Fuller Road Gate of Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, in a box truck and were stopped by military sentries, Capt. Michael Curtis, a spokesman for the base, said in a statement to Marine Corps Times on Tuesday.

The two men were illegals, one a Jordanian national, the other on the terror watch list. They claimed to be working for an Amazon subcontractor and that they were there to make a delivery to the US Post Office in the Town of Quantico.

Without the credentials to get in, however, the terrorists were asked to go to a holding area where they'd be vetted by the Marines.

Because the two had no affiliation with the Marine base and no credentials to enter it, military police officers directed them to go to a holding area to undergo standard vetting procedures, according to Curtis. But the driver blew past the holding area and attempted to drive onto the base.

Officers put up the vehicle denial barriers, blocking the truck from getting any farther onto the base, and detained the pair.

Is it just me, or does this sound like something that would happen at a US base in Libya, or maybe Iraq? But no, it happened right here in the USA - at QUANTICO right outside DC!!

The Marine Corps later turned the pair over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. That agency did not respond by time of publication to a Marine Corps Times request for more information about the two people who were detained …

Potomac Local News, which first reported the attempted breach, reported hearing from multiple unnamed sources that one of the truck's occupants was a Jordanian national who had recently crossed the southern border into the United States and that one occupant was on the U.S. government's terrorist watch list.

We have no information as to weapons, explosives, or anything inside the box truck that could've been used to attack the base. Luckily, there were no injuries to report either, as our boys got the job done like usual.

For some context, here's what the target looked like to the terrorists.

Located in northern Virginia, Marine Corps Base Quantico is less than an hour's drive from Washington. To enter the town of Quantico, Virginia, where the pair claimed to be heading, vehicles have to drive through the Marine installation.

The installation is home to the Corps' Combat Development Command, which is dedicated to modernizing the force, plus a smattering of Marine schools and other elements. It also hosts some activities of the FBI, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency and other federal agencies.

Quantico is the largest of our Marine Corps bases, and it's right on the Potomac.

So this is what happens when terrorists cross our border illegally and then try to break into our military bases to cause a disturbance. We foiled the plans in this situation, but I can't help but think what could happen if these terrorists who are crossing our border illegally try for a softer target next time.

It's only a matter of time.
