Engaging a qualitative methodology that includes in-depth interviews with 141 Mexicanmigrant smugglers, this paper proceeds from the following research question: Alliances between Mexican migrant smuggling networks and foreign terrorist groups could be established so that members of terrorist organizations could enter surreptitiously into the United States. This paper indicates that there is not a nexus between Mexican migrant smugglers and foreign terrorists. The control exercised by the drug cartels over much of the Mexican territory constitutes an obstacle and not an opportunity for terrorists to enter the United States.
