ABC News reports that the Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested five Egyptian men in Jersey on Sunday, based on a tip given to the Newark Police Department. They were found to be in possession of maps of the New York Subway System and videos of New York City landmarks. Even though they all claimed to be unemployed engineers, they had $8,000 in $20 and $50 bills.
Four of the five men are illegal immigrants and the fifth is a law enforcement fugitive, having jumped ship from an Egyptian freighter in 2000.
The government is taking steps to deport them.
Now, isn’t that just special?
