ISIS plotted to send westerners to US through Mexico border

by Hollie McKay

{ foxnews.com } ~ A chilling confession from a captured ISIS fighter has shed light on how the terrorist group intended to exploit the vulnerabilities of the U.S. border with Mexico… using English speakers and westerners to take advantage of smuggling routes and target financial institutions. Seized ISIS fighter Abu Henricki, a Canadian citizen with dual citizenship with Trinidad, last month said that he was sought out by the violent insurgency’s leadership to attack the U.S. from a route starting in Central America, according to a study by the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE) and published in Homeland Security Today. “ISIS has organized plots in Europe with returnees so it seems entirely plausible that they wanted to send guys out to attack. The issue that makes a North American attack harder is the travel is more difficult from Syria,” Anne Speckhard, who co-conducted the study as the director of ICSVE and Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University, told Fox News. “So the idea that they would instead use people who were not known to their own governments as having joined ISIS might make it possible for them to board airplanes.” Henricki allegedly traveled to Syria with the intention of serving as an ISIS fighter, but was later told he could not take on soldier duties due to a chronic illness. At the end of 2016, he claimed to have been “invited” by the ISIS intelligence wing – known as the emni – to join other Trinidadians and launch financial attacks on the U.S. The attacks were described to Henricki as designed to “cripple the U.S. economy,” and he was said to have been informed that he would be issued false identification and passports and would be maneuvered from Puerto Rico to Mexico and then to the United States. “The plan came from someone from the New Jersey state of America. I was going to take the boat from Puerto Rico into Mexico. He was going to smuggle me in,” the ISIS cadre continued. He further elaborated that he believed the scheme was aimed at New York financial targets… https://www.foxnews.com/world/isis-plot-westerners-mexico-border

National Border Patrol Council Predicts a ‘Totally Uncontrolled Border’ If Congress Doesn’t Act

by Madison Summers

{ ijr.com } ~ National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd is warning that if the apparent crisis at the southern border isn’t addressed… the U.S.-Mexico border could fall into shambles. It’s not new news that there’s a growing immigration situation at the U.S.-Mexico border, as President Donald Trump has butt heads with Democratic leaders over immigration bills — even declaring a national emergency after what became the longest partial government shutdown in U.S. history. However, the political feud continues, which has border officials apprehending an upward of 144,278 illegal immigrants in the month of May alone. The border patrol council president addressed reports that immigration law enforcement was bolstering their deportation efforts, telling “Fox & Friends” on Sunday that those are people who were already heard by a judge and “did not have a right to be here in the United States and ordered them deported.” According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), 87 percent of migrants who are released in the U.S. never appear for the court date, disappearing into the country. As Fox News noted, acting ICE director Mark Morgan reported that the border getting to the point of releasing single-adult males, which could be a “serious threat to our border.” Judd said, “we’re right at that point.” “If that happens, you’re going to see a completely and totally uncontrolled border, more than what it is right now,” Judd warned…  https://ijr.com/national-border-patrol-council-predicts-a-totally-uncontrolled-border-if-congress-doesnt-act/

Mexico Blinks Over Trump’s Tariff Threat

Thomas Gallatin: President Donald Trump’s threat to raise tariffs against all Mexican imports if that government doesn’t act to stop the flow of Central American migrants to the U.S. border appears to be working. On Thursday, Mexican officials offered a big concession, promising to immediately deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala. Furthermore, Mexico froze the bank accounts of 26 individuals for allegedly participating “in migrant smuggling and the organization of illegal migrant caravans.” Still, no deal has yet been reached and tariff start date of Monday the 10th remains.

Mexico also reportedly agreed to significantly overhaul asylum protocols so as to require applicants to take permanent refuge in the first safe country in which they arrive. Should this asylum overhaul go into effect it would, in theory, stem the flow of migrant caravans through Mexico. Any migrant requesting asylum in the U.S. whose country of origin was south of Mexico would be sent to the closest country of refuge adjacent to their homeland.

Vice President Mike Pence noted the progress, stating, “There has been movement on [Mexico’s] part. It’s been encouraging. The discussions are going to continue in the days ahead.” However, Pence made it clear that Trump has the final say.

As the border crisis only intensifies, May saw more than 132,000 migrants detained after illegally crossing the border. U.S. Customs and Border Protection is overwhelmed, overworked, undermanned, and bursting at the seams with migrant detainees. With Democrats unwilling to act in any manner to help end the crisis — instead passing an amnesty bill in the House this week — Trump is left to wield one of the few effective tools he has to deal with the problem: tariffs.

While many Republicans and conservatives are rightly concerned over the economic impact of Trump’s tariffs, one question few seem willing to address or even acknowledge is the greater and arguably longer-term economic impact upon the American worker that illegal immigration creates. Clearly, the free market is the best system — so long as everyone is playing by the same rules. Illegal immigration undercuts these rules, cheating American workers and taxpayers. Rectifying such problems is never easy or painless.

Trump’s nationalism is not negative but virtuous in that he recognizes that his primary job is to protect and promote the welfare of Americans above all other nations. This is not an “us against them” message as the Leftmedia fallaciously claims. Rather it is more the attitude of a father prioritizing the needs of his own children over those of others. It is what any nation should expect and demand from its leaders. Democrats object because theirs is a commitment to globalism over nationalism. ~The Patriot Post
