      FNS: Mexican Officials Investigate Pakistan-Born US citizen in Baja California
      October 15, 2001


      The Méxicali newspaper La Crónica reports that the arrival of a Pakistan-born US citizen to the Baja California coastal city of San Felipe set off an investigation by immigration authorities from the Instituto Nacional de Migración (National Institute of Migration, INM). La Crónica reports that a man carrying a US passport that noted his place of birth as Pakistan was on a flight that landed at the San Felipe airport. Immigration authorities needed about 4 1/2 hours to verify with a US consulate that the man was indeed a US citizen and not linked to any terrorist groups.

      After being cleared by the INM, the man was allowed to fill out a tourist visa to temporarily stay in the port town of San Felipe. La Crónica tried to find the man to interview him but was not was able to locate him. The newspaper also said that the man was in San Felipe and was being observed as part of the anti-terrorism precautions that are being taken across the country.
