Judicial Watch: Mexican Authorities Confirm ISIS Camp a Few Miles from Texas

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.

Law enforcement and intelligence sources report the area around Anapra is dominated by the Vicente Carrillo Fuentes Cartel (“Juárez Cartel”), La Línea (the enforcement arm of the cartel) and the Barrio Azteca (a gang originally formed in the jails of El Paso). Cartel control of the Anapra area make it an extremely dangerous and hostile operating environment for Mexican Army and Federal Police operations.

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. These specific areas were targeted for exploitation by ISIS because of their understaffed municipal and county police forces, and the relative safe-havens the areas provide for the unchecked large-scale drug smuggling that was already ongoing.

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). The sources also say that ISIS has “spotters” located in the East Potrillo Mountains of New Mexico (largely managed by the Bureau of Land Management) to assist with terrorist border crossing operations. ISIS is conducting reconnaissance of regional universities; the White Sands Missile Range; government facilities in Alamogordo, NM; Ft. Bliss; and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, NM.

EoV Note: In response to this JW report, Congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) insists that there are no ISIS terrorists in Ciudad Juarez, chalking it up to recurring rumors that have persisted for years. We wonder if the honorable congressman took a little road trip to check it out himself. Similarly, the U.S. Northern Command and Department of Homeland Security also deny any terrorist presence in Mexico. As for the Mexican government itself, they also cannot verify the claim.

But here’s the thing: Assuming that they have “made contact” with the enemy, it’s very unlikely that neither the United States or Mexican governments would be talking about it in the press. As a rule, we don’t tell our citizens anything. Authorities feel it’s best not to “needlessly panic people” or “compromise sensitive surveillance techniques.”  Uh-huh. The truth is that our government is simply habitually accustomed to operating in secret.

Whatever they know or don’t know, here’s what is certain: The border remains a wide open invitation to those who seek to do this nation harm. And it’s not a matter of if they will strike, but only when.
