Islamic State fighters are operating training bases near the U.S. southern border and are being aided by violent drug cartels to smuggle terrorists into states like Texas, a report published Tuesday by a watchdog group claims.
The Judicial Watch report, which cited an unnamed Mexican Army officer and a Mexican police inspector, raises new fears that the fight with ISIS is closer to the U.S. than previously thought.
The report identified the locations of the two bases, and said one is as close as 8 miles from Texas in a town west of Juarez. Mexican authorities found possible evidence — plans written in Arabic and Urdu — last week in the town of “Anapra,” the sources said. These sources told the watchdog that “coyotes” who work for drug cartels assist in smuggling terrorists between Fort Hancock, Texas, and other undisclosed locations.
We can get serious and build a fence, or we can get people blown up.
It’s really that simple.
