Judicial Watch has just put out this statement:
Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

Say what!??! The Feds are now saying the southern US border is under threat of an imminent terror attack by ISIS? You've got to be kidding me. Another fabulous problem caused by the administration's continued lack of border security and failed foreign policy?

Hmmm.. This story in conjunction with THIS story really makes one think. I smell something brewing and it isn't coffee. People are starting to push against the laws put into place by the last big terror event, time to give them a reason to shut up and willingly accept them again.

For Immediate Release DHS Press Office
Today, the United Kingdom raised the domestic threat level from international terrorism from “Substantial” to “Severe,” related to developments in Syria and Iraq. I have spoken to U.K. Home Secretary Theresa May about these changes.
At present, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI are unaware of any specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland from ISIL. Plainly, however, violent extremists who support ISIL have demonstrated the intent and capability to target American citizens overseas, and ISIL constitutes an active and serious threat within the region.
Really? If you were ISIS would YOU attack the 'Southern Border'? Where's the pay-off? Wouldn't you attempt to do something in a major population center? A major landmark perhaps? A major utility installation?

There is no evidence of any terrorist attacks coming in from Mexico. This is right wing propaganda, intended to bring up the immigration debate all over again. Not that I mind the issue resurfacing, I'm just about as liberal as it gets, but I've always believed there should be tougher border security. The US should build a great wall; ten feet tall, 3 feet wide, solid concrete. Allowing illegals into the country and then rewarding them with green cards and welfare checks only reinforces criminal behavior.
