Mexican authorities have confirmed that ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police inspector.
The location is around eight miles from the U.S. border just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west, in Puerto Palomas targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States.
In a joint operation last week, Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu as well as ‘Plans” of Fort Bliss — the huge military base that houses the U.S. Army’s 1st Armored division. They found Muslim prayer rugs and documents. The area is dominated by the “Juarez Cartel”, La Linea — the enforcement arm of the cartel and the Barrio Azteca, a gang formed in el Paso jails, and makes it extremely dangerous for the Mexican Army and the Federal Police.
According to these sources “coyotes” specializing in human trafficking — and working for the Juárez Cartel are smuggling ISIS terrorists across the border into the area between Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and the area between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas. ISIS is conducting reconnaissance of regional universities, the White Sands Missile Range, Fort Bliss, government facilities in Alamogordo, and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, NM.
Four Turkish men were arrested last November, illegally crossing the border, Homeland Security spokeswoman Marsha Catron said they were not associated with ISIS.
“The suggestion that individuals who have ties to ISIL have been apprehended at the southwest border is categorically false, and not supported by any credible intelligence or the facts on the ground,” Ms. Catron said. “DHS continues to have no credible intelligence to suggest terrorist organizations are actively plotting to cross the southwest border.”
