FOX News – “A Republican congressman claimed Tuesday that ‘at least 10’ Islamic State ‘fighters’ have been caught trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border into Texas, though an administration official denied it.
Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., said he learned the information from the Border Patrol, warning that the alleged attempts to cross into the U.S. raise serious security concerns.
‘ISIS is coming across the southern border,’ he told Fox News. ‘They aren’t flying B1 bombers bombing American cities, but they are going to be bombing American cities coming across from Mexico.’
Hunter continued: ‘I know that at least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the Mexican border in Texas.’
He claimed Border Patrol ‘caught them,’ but ‘you know there’s going to be dozens more that did not get caught by the Border Patrol.’
The Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday denied Hunter’s claim.
‘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,’ a senior DHS spokesman said. ‘DHS continues to have no credible intelligence to suggest terrorist organizations are actively plotting to cross the southwest border.’
But Hunter spokesman Joe Kasper said the information — that about 10 individuals with ‘known ISIS affiliations’ — came from a ‘high-level source within the Border Patrol.'” Read more.
