By design, this onslaught of illegal immigrants is overwhelming the United States’ ability to deal with the crisis in a secure and effective manner. The amount of corruption involved in this is appalling. From drug cartel involvement and leftist activist funding to the renting of children in a bid to circumvent the system via the “political-correctness” component of the national argument, the level of evil driving this situation is unfathomable.
However, an even more alarming situation is happening that adds to the mal-intent involved with illegal border crossings—Islamic terrorism. A recent report and video by research organization International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE) shows that terror attacks have been plotted against the United States via soldiers arriving illegally through the southern border.
The report is derived by data acquired from in-depth interviews with over 160 ISIS defectors, returnees, and i mprisoned ISIS soldiers. For the most part, the plots uncovered by these interviews mostly regarded attacks on European nations. However, at least one of these interviews uncovered a plot that was intended to be carried out in the United States.
In a video, Abu Henricki, a Canadian with dual citizenship in Trinidad tells of his being asked by ISIS to coordinate with a plot in the United States whereby he would be required to enter from the U.S.-Mexican border.
According to him he was asked in 2016 to go to America to take part in “financial attacks to cripple the economy” of the United States. Henricki stated that ISIS had the ability to carry out such an attack with such resources as obtaining fake identification and passports.
The former ISIS soldier refused to carry out the attack, which he says would have taken place with other members of ISIS. For his refusal he was imprisoned and tortured by ISIS.
Regarding the origination of the attack plan, Henricki said, “This was master-minded by a guy in America. That information, the plan came from somebody from the New Jersey state from America. Where he is, I do not know.”
He also alleged that Isis was going to send him to Puerto Rico and then on to Mexico, where he would presumably make his entrance into the United States with he fake documentation that ISIS would have arranged.
While little attention has been paid to this by mainstream news sources, it is known that this phenomenon dates as far back as the George W. Bush administration when it was discovered that Mexican cartels had formed partnerships with radical Islamic terrorist organizations such as CAIR-Hamas and CAIR-Hezbollah.
In addition, the Center for Immigration Studies(CIS) reported that at least 15 suspected terrorists have been apprehended at the Mexican border with the United States from 2001 to 2017 At least 100 “watch-list” terrorists have been encountered by law enforcement at or approaching the border from 2012 to 2017.
While these numbers may seem low, they do not account for top-secret information withheld by the government. Actual data of this nature is difficult to acquire, but the obvious assumption is that there are many more that have been apprehended or confronted that the public simply isn’t aware of.
Moreover, given the current estimated numbers of illegal aliens unaccounted for in the United States, the public should be more concerned that no one knows their intent. The mainstream media often reassures citizens that illegals are all just “people trying to work and support their families”. But the reality is that these outlets, in attempting to virtue signal, offer no empirical evidence to determine any immigrant’s intent.
