ISIS Camp a Few Miles from Texas, Mexican Authorities Confirm

Judicial Watch, April 14, 2015

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 exact location where the terrorist group has established its 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. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss–the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

According to these same sources, “coyotes” engaged in human smuggling–and working for Juárez Cartel–help move ISIS terrorists through the desert and across the border between Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, New Mexico. To the east of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez, cartel-backed “coyotes” are also smuggling ISIS terrorists through the porous border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas. {snip}

Mexican intelligence sources report that ISIS intends to exploit the railways and airport facilities in the vicinity of Santa Teresa, NM (a US port-of-entry). {snip}

    We told you so.

    Mexico is a scab that should be removed from the planet.

    • Oil Can Harry

      About 20 years ago Howard Stern called it “a urinal with a government”.

      • Cid Campeador

        Howard was spot on!
        There is a real invasion going on from Mexico.
        A REAL President would order an airstrike on this ISIS camp. Bombing and Strafing and obliterating them.

        • ElComadreja

          It’s a shame he disgraced himself by delivering a groveling apology to Mexicans over his “Selena” comments in effing Spanish. I lost any respect I had for him after that.

    • listenupbub

      ???

      • ElComadreja

        Just what I said.

        • listenupbub

          I think we give too much grief to Mexico. It is the Central Americans who deserve wrath.

          • Spaniard in LA

            I read somewhere that Mexican border jumping has gone down, while Central American crossing has spiked.

          • listenupbub

            That’s exactly right.

            I think I should adjust my statement, after I read an article today. Any hispanic immigration is terrible.

  • MooTieFighter

    Of course, Our borders are vulnerable. To bad our present administration can’t figure this out. The terrorist sure can.

    • Light from the East

      US is strong enough to engage wars with other countries oversea, but ironically is not strong enough to defend the south border.

      • ElComadreja

        I don’t even know how well we engage overseas anymore.

    • ElComadreja

      They want vulnerable borders. Both parties are equally guilty of it.

  • Johann Wald

    Curious that the government and MSM seem to know almost daily the inner goings on of ISIS, where they are etc., etc. but never quite enough to effectively strike at them militarily. Shade of Al-Queda and the CIA again?

    • Spaniard in LA

      I am in the opinion that ISIS is nothing more than a Western/Mssd proxy. They’re trying to redraw the Middle East.

      • I think the “moderate” anti-Assad rebels were doing that already, before ISIS. Groups like ISIS seek weakness; they fill power vacuums.

      Good one!

    Dictator Obama ‘ s plan to destory America !!!!! NO QUESTION!!!!!!!!!

    • WR_the_realist

      Be fair. Obama is merely continuing Bush’s plan to destroy American. They are in different parties, but like all our politicians, work for the same team.

      • ElComadreja

        Frankly it goes back to at least LBJ.

        • Jason Lewis

          Bingo. America started to die the moment JFK was killed.

  • Spaniard in LA

    If a terrorist attacks does occur, the Mexican cartels would lose out billions of dollars. I doubt the cartels will allow some Muslim jihadi to ruin their money. Bogus article!

  • Gee, how come I never heard about this on the news, and the president never mentioned it? Hmmm…I wonder why??????

    • Bossman

      Maybe the reason why you never heard about that is because stories like that are complete fabrications designed to promote fear and hatred of Mexicans.

      • WR_the_realist

        I have fear and hatred of any group that brags about how they’re taking over my country. If Mexicans just stayed in Mexico I’d wish them the best.

      • libertarian1234

        Or more likely the press is covering up the info, because it reflects badly on Obama, which surely is a common practice of theirs.

        Judicial Watch has been on this for literally months. This isn’t a wild assertion that just popped up. They had valid info from the BP they presented to the press months ago, but it was ridiculed and ignored by the press and the Democrats.

        And why would they want people to hate Mexicans? That doesn’t make sense.

        And why would people hate Mexicans, because ISIS has infiltrated Mexico? The cartels are already intensely disliked, because of their drug smuggling. People smuggling has been reported to be a business for them even more profitable than drugs.

        And can you think of a better way to fight a super power than to invade their land preparing to bring the battle home, as they explained was justified because the US brought the battle to their area?

        They also threatened to include ISIS soldiers in with the 500 ME refuges per day who go to Italy. They said they would go to other EU nations ready to act. And have we not seen attacks already from the ones that are already living there?

        • Blackfish

          Pictures might help since, according to this article, it’s a short drive from El Paso. Color me skeptical. This is National Enquirer type stuff!!

          • libertarian1234

            Judicial Watch has never been a part of any kind of baseless rhetoric.
            They’re responsible for truths the people would NEVER know about if they had to rely only on the press.
            What good would photos do if there is an ongoing government campaign to impugn anybody who is speaking out? I’ll guarantee if photos were presented they’d be called fake or staged.
            But I’m pretty sure if they haven’t moved already the members of the camp are already in denial mode regarding anything to do with ISIS.
            This isn’t the first incident the federal government has denied only to be proven later they were lying when additional evidence comes in.
            This administration and the entire Democrat party wants open borders. They’re not about to allow any info that might cause the public to demand the NG be sent there.
            They’re liars and I wouldn’t believe any of their claims or denials.

      • Mexicans already promote hatred of Mexicans. Why would the press need to get in on the act?

    • Spaniard in LA

      It’s probably a bogus story. The cartels make billions of dollars smuggling drugs. A major terrorist attack will be of no benefit to them.

      • libertarian1234

        Then why would Mexican authorities lie about it? It benefits them not one iota.

        • Spaniard in LA

          Perhaps the Mexican government wants more weapons and funds. If it turns out to be true, ISIS members and those who help them will more than likely be executed by the cartels. The cartels do not want anyone to disrupt their money.

          • It would be quite amusing to read about ISIS members being tortured and beheaded by folks even nastier than they are.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        It could be bogus, but who really knows when it comes to the press?

        The Norte Digital online newspaper site, that covers Juárez City and the border, has a report that everyone is in denial over ISIS being in Juárez. The White House, Josh Earnest, Mexican authorities, congressman Beto O’Rourke who represents the El Paso, TX district, are all in denial.

        If interested in the full article, go to the Norte Digital site, click on the Juárez tab and skip down and click on “El Paso.”

        • Spaniard in LA

          I’m sure the cartels would not allow members of ISIS roaming it’s territory. The cartels have a good thing going on. A terrorist attack would cost them drugs and dinero. The outrage would force Emperor Obama to put more boots at the border.

  • Bossman

    If that was really true, it would be a simple operation to provide the Mexican government with a few drones loaded with the missiles to do the job. Stories like these are just designed to promote fear and hatred for the next door neighbor and trading partner.

    • Spaniard in LA

      Mexico already produces its own drone called the S4 Ehécatl. Maybe Mexico wants more of my money.

      • Bossman

        That story may be a complete fabrication.

        • libertarian1234

          Judicial Watch has exposed too many plots, plans and capers to be taken lightly. They don’t engage in baseless rhetoric.

        • libertarian1234

          I’m still checking and haven’t bought into it 100% yet, but I’m more inclined to believe JW and private reporting than the feds.

          Here’s a recent update.

      • That one is too little to carry a useful weapon load, but is fine for surveillance, and mounts a forward-looking infrared sensor.

    • Anglokraut

      Too bad Mexico isn’t like our other neighbor, Canada. Canada is like the steady, responsible, reliable older brother in the Anglosphere. To borrow a phrase from the movie “Braveheart”–the trouble with Mexico is…it’s full of Mexicans!

      • Spaniard in LA

        I wish they would the gov would shoot anyone crossing the border illegally and just maybe they would stop coming.

        The problem with Mexico is the elite class. Mexico is 14th largest economy in the world with a lot of potential as country. For example, the elite class does not allow entrepreneurship because that would be stepping on its toes. It’s hard for a country to prosper when government bureaucrats protect the ruling elite. Mexico needs to topple its ruling class if it ever wants to prosper.

        • Dale McNamee

          Just like Obama and the Progressives elites here using the government to punish those who own businesses or want to start one…

          A prosperous middle class keeps them at bay…

    • ElComadreja

      The one that sends us criminals and welfare leeches by the millions?

  • WR_the_realist

    I have long contended that if terrorists want to enter the United States the easiest way to do this is to first get into Mexico, and then walk across the border, where they will be greeted with open arms by Obama, Jeb Bush, John McCain, and Harry Reid.

    • libertarian1234

      Yes, after which a party will be given in their honor. Because “diversity is our strength.”

      And Hillary will be on t.v. exclaiming, “What difference does it make now?”

  • Hilis Hatki

    Maybe they meant “Icee Camp”.

  • libertarian1234

    “ISIS Camp a Few Miles from Texas, Mexican Authorities Confirm”

    Judicial Watch had valid evidence of this months ago and reported that they were told by reliable sources within the Border Patrol that ISIS terrorists had been apprehended, in addition to prayer rugs and other personal belongings common to jihadists, but the press ridiculed them, along with a Democrat Congressman who said it was all malarkey.

    Now that it has been verified by Mexican investigators and others, the FBI has set up operations in Juarez to investigate. Captured coyotes have verified they are being paid to guide ISIS into the US along with illegal drugs.

    So it appears as if there are many jihadist cells here right now waiting for the signal to begin festivities, probably as reprisals for when the US puts a devastating hurt on ISIS’s ability to conduct warfare in Iraq and Syria.

    Or could it be, as they said in a threatening video, that they’re planning an event more devastating than 9-11?

    One border sheriff was asked on t.v. what he would do about a possible ISIS invasion, and he said he would “Send them to Hell.”

    But is that just bravado, because if they’re here and they’re ordered to attack, they’re going to go to targets already designated and they won’t be in the border area?

    Their aim will be to create so much fear and chaos it will destroy the economy, hoping to prevent the US’s ability to finance warfare against them in the M.E.

    These people aren’t overly smart, but they’re deadly determined and serious.

    • Spaniard in LA

      I’m pretty sure the cartels will kill anyone who helps ISIS. Think about the money they lose if a terrorist attack does occur.

      • libertarian1234

        I’m not sure they’ll lose ANY money as the result of a terrorist attack, even if the border is closed down, because it isn’t possible to stop all traffic coming into the country by people who are more familiar with the various routes and terrain than the BP. But the feds can’t really close down the border anyway, because that would halt all international commerce going both ways, which, in itself, could precipitate an economic disaster.

        There are literally billions upon billions of money involved in interstate commerce between Mexico and the US. And if Mexico lost that revenue they more likely than not have their own version of an economic collapse.

        Too, the cartels hate each other. If they didn’t and would unite, they could topple the existing government. They could well see some advantage to having chaos rein in both countries. But I seriously doubt that they think anything through as educated military leaders. If they did they could well conclude that the creation of chaos on the southern border would open up routes via the Bahamas and Florida and the East Coast as was once the SOP for them before they concentrated all their efforts and resources on the Southwest route due to such easy access.

        I really think we need to reflect on how much we are being lied to by this US government and conclude the greatest possibility in this entire affair is, like everything else, that the government is lying to us AGAIN. That’s a far more valid assumption.

        I trust Judicial Watch MUCH MORE than the feds. They lie to us and spy on us 24/7. We just learned of another fabrication today wherein Admiral Mullin lied to us and said he was unaware of the Bergdhal desertion until recent times, but three of Bergdahl’s platoon mates have come out and said Mullin knew of the desertion in December of the same year he deserted, 2009. It has also been reported military personnel have lost trust in military leadership due to their propensity to lie.

        Here’s an excerpt from JW regarding an update on the situation.

        “Responding to Judicial Watch’s report earlier this week of ISIS activity along the Mexican border, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) supervisors called a “special” meeting at the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juárez.

        “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.”

      • libertarian1234

        I haven’t unequivocally assumed that JW’s report is 100% accurate, but I think more likely than not it is. In any event I have more faith in private reporting than the federal government.

        Alex Jones’ reporter Joe Biggs went to Mexico to see if he could learn anything himself.

        He was contacted by the FBI who met with him, asking that he report any useful info to them, because they can’t go to Mexico themselves.

        They also said JW reporting is very credible and their reports are 99% accurate.

  • More “children”?

    • John Smith

      Everyone is a “child” to the Left if it suits their arguments, so why not do the same?

  • Rhialto

    A good topic of research would be the damage to normal Americans done by the Isis immigrants versus the damage to normal Americans done by normal Mexican immigrants.

    The Isis immigrants would all act as productive & law abiding Americans until ordered otherwise. Isis will not likely give this order as it would mean murderous retaliation by the Federal Government. The negative is increasing American unemployment.

    The situation with the Mexican immigrants may not be so positive.

  • John Smith

    Give them US citizenship too.

    If 1% of total 1 billion Muslims are ISIS supporters, then we have 10 million of them worldwide, not even to mention potential supporters are far more than 1%. You basically can find them everywhere around the world, only where is more densely populated.

        Sunni and Shia Muslims hate each other as well.

      • Also agnostics, atheists, Hindus, Ba’hai, Druzes, Buddhists, pagans and even each other when nobody else is handy. Leaving aside the Sunni and Shi-ite hatred, there are also “honor” killings of their own immediate family members.
