Report: ISIS eyeing Mexican border to infiltrate America and execute terrorist attacks

posted at 6:01 pm on August 29, 2014 by Noah Rothman

Aside from this being a deeply unnerving development, this has the potential to completely scramble the political thinking in this country regarding immigration reform and border security.

A report from Fox News reporter Jana Winter filed on Friday indicates that Islamic State fighters are eyeing the porous U.S.-Mexico border as a potential area in which aspiring jihadists can infiltrate the country and prepare terrorist attacks.

Social media chatter shows Islamic State militants are keenly aware of the porous U.S.-Mexico border, and are “expressing an increased interest” in crossing over to carry out a terrorist attack, according to a Texas law enforcement bulletin sent out this week.

“A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending August 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of US, for terror attack,” warns the Texas Department of Public Safety “situational awareness” bulletin, obtained by FoxNews.com.

The three-page bulletin, entitled “ISIS Interest on the US Southwest Border” was released to law enforcement on Thursday.

In related news, White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest told reporters on Friday that the number of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border had dropped precipitously. When asked if the crisis on the border was over, Earnest said it was. “For now,” he added.

There are currently no credible and specific threats to targets inside the United States, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said on Friday. That is going to come as cold comfort to American news consumers. On Friday alone, the United Kingdom increased its terror threat warning and reporters uncovered a laptop captured in Syria which details efforts to manufacture and disperse biological agents as part of a mass casualty attack.

A release on the threat via Judicial Watch provides reason to be concerned though not paralyzed with fear by the increased chatter which regularly precedes the anniversary of the September 11th attacks:

The administration has also covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region. Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting. In the meantime, who could forget the famous words of Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern border is “as secure as it has ever been.”

The news comes as reports indicate a long-awaited executive order from the president which would extend legal status to millions of illegal residents may be put on hold until after the midterm elections. On its face, this makes little sense. Why would the president want to delay executive action until after he has lost the majority of his political capital in the increasingly likely event his party loses control of the Senate? In the light of this development, however, the context of the president’s decision to delay a major move on immigration decision becomes clearer.

Ho hum … VERY old news.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/1469466/Arab-terrorists-are-getting-into-the-US-over-Mexican-border.html

15 Aug 2004
President Bush has launched a drive to halt illegal immigration across America’s porous southern border, amid growing fears that terrorists may be using Mexico as a base camp before heading to Arizona, Texas and California.
A string of alarming incidents has convinced Bush administration officials that lax immigration rules, designed to cope with the huge numbers of illegal entrants from Mexico, have become a significant loophole in the war on terror.
Over the past month, border agents from Arizona and Texas have anonymously reported recent encounters with dozens of Arab men, who have made their way across the 2,000-mile Mexican border.
Patrol agents told one Arizona newspaper that 77 males “of Middle Eastern descent” were apprehended in June in two separate incidents. All were trekking through the Chiricahua mountains and are believed to have been part of a larger group of illegal immigrants. Many were released pending immigration hearings. According to Solomon Ortiz, the Congressman for Corpus Christi in Texas, similar incidents are “happening all over the place. It’s very, very scary”.
The two groups of Arab males were discovered by patrol guards from Willcox, Arizona. “These guys didn’t speak Spanish,” said one field agent, “and they were speaking to each other in Arabic. It’s ridiculous that we don’t take this more seriously. We’re told not to say a thing to the media.” A colleague told the paper: “All the men had brand-new clothing and the exact same cut of moustache.” Local ranchers have also reported a rise in the sightings of large groups of young males.

Last month, border patrol agents at McAllen airport, Texas, arrested a woman believed to be Pakistani, who was carrying a false South African passport. The woman, Farida Ahmed, is still being questioned by the FBI. She was travelling to New York, and admitted to having illegally crossed the Mexican border. She was still carrying a pair of wet jeans in her travel bag.

Farida had about $7000 in cash, later admitted to crossing Rio Granb over 100 times, etc.

Next time you get groped at the airport by TSA, you can relax, knowing that the same vigilance is being exercised at our land borders.

ISIS eyeing Mexican border to infiltrate America and execute terrorist attacks

Which is exactly what Rick Perry said, just a week ago – and yet, ‘team obama’, and the Mexican government immediately dismissed the idea, and many in the MSM mocked Perry, and called his claims bogus and silly. Are the naysayers going to change their tune now?

Breitbart Texas spoke with the president of Judicial Watch, Tom Sitton. He said, “This is a dire situation and I can’t emphasize enough the seriousness of the threat posed here. If your law enforcement sources do not have the information we have, they are being ill-served by their leadership. We put this out to protect the safety of law enforcement and citizens along the border. this is a public safety announcement.”

Right.

The truth is it should never have come to this. We are sovereign state, and the protection of its people should always have been the first concern.

Dems and Republicans have tossed sovereignty aside for political gain, and business interests have lobbied for cheap labor.

We’ve known for years that terrorists are slipping through the Southern border. Bracky has made it worse. But all our politicians are to blame.

Since we are left to pay for the mess in so many ways, it’s time to resist and make the politicians pay.

They don’t live where we live, and they’re not paying the price.

I can foresee a coordinated, simultaneous attack on multiple cities throughout flyover country, too, but also including NYC, LA, DC, and Chicago to ensure maximum publicity. I see them using soft targets in most cases — elementary schools, churches, hospitals, etc. — places generally light in armed citizens, defenders and first responders, to ensure maximum casualties.

It would only take about 20 of such simultaneous attacks to literally bring the country to a standstill, not to mention the economic impact it would cause.

And, when that happens, no telling what contingency plans Putin and China already have in the pipeline for a follow up on the cyber and economic fronts.

It is going to be stupid to fight them over there if they (Jihadist) can fly to Mexico and walk across the border and get the royal treatment from INS. Sort of like entering WWII by sending lots of American troops to Europe and totally leaving the Eastern seaboard unguarded.

This can’t be. A week or so ago in that particular Perry thread we had a poster (forgot who it was) that claimed that not only is there “no evidence” but that it would be more probable on the Canadian border.

anuts on August 29, 2014 at 7:23 PM

It seems unlikely, in my opinion, that Muslim jihadists that we absolutely know are moving into this nation across what is essentially an open border would initiate a terror attack just yet. Obama has two more years in which to keep the border in such a state of lawlessness and porosity that it would be like killing the Golden Goose.

No, this is more a test I think by our terrorist infiltrators to assure themselves that Obama has no intention of taking any action to secure the border, the consequences be damned. I firmly believe their expectations will be answered in the affirmative.

Dan_NV on August 29, 2014 at 7:34 PM

talkingpoints on August 29, 2014 at 7:47 PM

Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting.

This isn’t new. The federal government ceded control of large areas of the U.S. southwest to the Mexican drug cartels years ago.

Most Americans aren’t aware of it, because the MSM refuses to report on it. Can’t have any stories that might rile up voters and get them to start demanding a more secure border; it’s not in the Democrats’ interests. And since the MSM is the PR arm of the Democratic party, they just stay mum.

If there was an attack and they came through the open border, would Obama be forced to resign? Who could he possibly blame? Would the press even try to cover for him?

You mean the one Minnesota borders?

This is not about me tooting a horn… more about how obvious this is and why it’s taken this long for it to hit the news pages (so the President can read about it).

Weeks ago, in response to a claim that ISIS was going to target the U.S. and might use “indigenous” sympathizers in this effort, I remarked… “they can walk in, from Mexico.”

I’m no genius and it didn’t take a “bulletin” to figure this out.

Does Obama really think we’re only allowing infants and drug dealers to disregard the border and flaunt the law?

Well, that one and several other States as well. It might be harder for them to get into Canada, but once there, it’s a lot easier to sneak across.

As a resident of the Southern US border in Arizona..we’ve seen this coming for quite awhile regarding terrorists. We’re aware and ready. We will protect our families. We are not militia. We’re informed Americans who will not be surprised when the worst may happen in our area. Obama has ignored, downplayed and right out opened up our southern US borders to any opportunist. Hello Evil, welcome in. We’re ready for you.

The enemy is already inside the wall. How much time do these bright bulbs think it would take to raise a small army just in Minneapolis.

Watch the Canadian border too.

At least 500 known Canadians are over in Syria, with IS. They hold passports…

It’s not just the Canadian border, it’s all our ports of entry (airports etc). Remember, ISIS has plenty of British and other Europeans fighting for them and drinking their Kool-aid. Those passport holders have very easy, no-visa-required entry into the US. I believe just showing their passport gets them a three month stay without requiring a visa (which requires a look into applicant background/motives a bit).

So unless they come in with a stamp from Syria or Iraq in their passport, they die in Syria/Iraq, they’re IDed and picked up on their return ‘home’…or they wear “I waged jihad for ISIS and all I got was this lousy shirt” attire, things could be pretty dicey.

“When asked if the crisis on the border was over, Earnest said it was. ‘For now,’ he added”…but Barack’s hoping that it’ll get back to record numbers again after summer’s over.

We’re going to have open carry very soon so Americans can protect themselves since the feds won’t do it.

If there’s ever a Beslan in the U.S., it will be open season on Muslims. The muzzies probably haven’t heard Admiral Yamamoto saying to the effect the Japanese could never invade the U.S. because there is a rifle behind every blade of grass.

I’m sick and tired of talk show hosts, politicians and pundits saying the American people are terrified. BS. Bring it on IS. Bring it here so maybe some people will WTFU. Tactical nukes, there time has come.

Does this also include smoking a number of Democratic sympathizers and enablers as collateral damage?

Reuben Hick on August 30, 2014 at 12:30 PM

So thats why Holder sent all those guns to Mexico…

Enemies of the constitution are enemies…period. I’ll get it out of the way now… sorry for any collateral damage. That should take care of that.
