U.S. Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas believes Mexican drug cartels and members of the Islamic State are “talking to each other.”
“The drug cartels use the same operational plan as terrorist groups do,” Poe, a member of the House Judiciary Committee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, said in an interview Wednesday with Newsmax TV. “They kill their opponents, they behead their opponents, they brag about it, and they have operational control of many portions of the southern border of the United States.”
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a staunch advocate for fortifying America’s borders, said it’s a strong possibility that Islamic State terrorists have already entered the United States with the help of Mexican drug cartels, according to a Yahoo report.
“We have been put on notice lately by a jihadist army that is right now charging across a country we were told was secure and stable,” Perry said in a speech at a Heritage Foundation event.
Mexican drug cartels are as “vicious as some of these other terrorist organizations,” Poe told Newsmax, and communication between cartels and Islamic State could spell disaster at America’s unsecured southern border — despite Harry Reid’s attempt to convince Americans the U.S-Mexico border is “totally secure.”
Poe called on President Obama to be tougher in dealing with the threat.
“Be proactive Mr. President, be very strong,” he told Newsmax, adding that there “has to be consequences for their reckless murder of other people.”
Given an option between doing nothing and eliminating the terrorist group, Poe said, it appears the United States favors the “do-nothing” approach.
