Conservative government watchdog Judicial Watch claims to have found more evidence that jihadists are entering the United States through still porous sections of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Recently, Judicial Watch presented evidence that terrorists crossed the border into Texas and that ISIS reportedly established training camps not far from the United States. (WND.com)
“This week, our suspicions of Islamic terrorist infiltration have been confirmed once again by the story of Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, a Somali ISIS terrorist who escaped deportation after entering the United States illegally,” the organization said.
The Federalist noted many “who have professionally worried, as did former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, that violent jihadists might illegally cross the United States’ southern border are often sanctimoniously challenged with this: ‘Name a single U.S. border-crossing immigrant asylum-seeker who ever committed a terrorist attack.'”
…”Five years after a Judicial Watch investigation uncovered evidence of Islamic terrorists infiltrating the United States through Mexico, a captured ISIS fighter is providing details of a plot in which jihadists enter the country through the southern border to carry out an attack,” Judicial Watch said.
“The terrorists begin their journey in Central America and exploit vulnerabilities in the Mexican border to reach the U.S., according to Abu Henricki, an ISIS soldier captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces in Rojava, Syria. Henricki and 160 of his fellow terrorists were interviewed at length by a research group called the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism. The nonpartisan organization published its findings recently in an alarming report that includes a video of the interview with the captured terrorist, who is Canadian and has dual Trinidadian citizenship.”
A congressional probe earlier this year found that migrants from terrorist nations are trying to enter the United States through Mexico at record rates.
