Newsmax TV’s JD Hayworth talked to Judicial Watch Investigative reporter Irene Garcia about their bombshell report from earlier this week claiming that terrorists have set up a training camp on the Southern border. High level Mexican sources are confirming JW’s reports from last August, that ISIS is operating at least one camp just a few miles from El Paso, TX.
Their sources include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican federal police inspector.
Garcia, a former LA Times reporter, said authorities on both side of the border have confirmed that the activity is occurring, but the Obama administration continues to claim the reports are unfounded for a number of reasons.
“…he wants better relations with Mexico, he’s allowing this influx of illegal immigrants coming in, he’s now facilitating with a program that Judicial Watch just broke, last week, where he’s flying the minors in, now because it’s too treacherous to cross the desert. If there’s terrorists right nearby – that would of course ruin that plan. A lot of it is denial – a lot of it is negligence – it’s downright insane and certainly deplorable that this is happening so close to our border, and yet the administration continues to officially say, that the border is secure – that this is unfounded.”
Garcia explained that ISIS is trying to enter the country through two ports of entry – El Paso and an area on the New Mexico border.
She referenced a Judicial Watch report from last August that revealed a leaked DHS warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border that had been issued within the agency and was not meant to go public.
Garcia ended by noting that a US government report a few years ago acknowledged that Islamic, Middle Eastern terrorists have teamed up with drug cartels on the border.
“But these reports get very little media attention and most of the public never hears about it,” she said.
Judicial Watch is now reporting that the DOJ called a “special meeting” in Juarez to deal with their report.
A high-level intelligence source, who must remain anonymous for safety reasons, confirmed that the meeting was convened specifically to address a press strategy to deny Judicial Watch’s accurate reporting and identify who is providing information to JW. FBI supervisory personnel met with Mexican Army officers and Mexican Federal Police officials, according to JW’s intelligence source. The FBI liaison officers regularly assigned to Mexico were not present at the meeting and conspicuously absent were representatives from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It’s not clear why DHS did not participate.
Publicly, U.S. and Mexico have denied that Islamic terrorists are operating in the southern border region, but the rapid deployment of FBI brass in the aftermath of JW’s report seems to indicate otherwise. A Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector were among the sources that confirmed to JW that ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas. The base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.
