A team led by a Middle Eastern woman was caught surveilling a port of entry at the U.S.-Mexican border earlier this month.
Leila Abdelrazaq, 23, had a sketchbook with her that included detailed drawings and notes in Arabic of the facility at the Port of Mariposa in Nogales, Arizona, according to Judicial Watch.
Customs and Border Patrol agents observed her and her accomplices, Gabriel Schivone, 31, and Leslie Mcafee. 28, “observing the facilities” on December 2.
Judicial Watch reported:
This distressing information comes on the heels of two separate—and equally alarming—incidents in the same vicinity. A few weeks ago JW reported that five young Middle Eastern men were apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol in Amado, an Arizona town situated about 30 miles from the Mexican border. Two of the men were carrying stainless steel cylinders in backpacks, alarming Border Patrol officials enough to call the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for backup. DHS officially denies this ever occurred, but law enforcement and other sources have confirmed to JW that the two men carrying the cylinders were believed to be taken into custody by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Of interesting note is that only three of the men’s names were entered in the Border Patrol’s E3 reporting system, which is used by the agency to track apprehensions, detention hearings and removals of illegal immigrants. E3 also collects and transmits biographic and biometric data including fingerprints for identification and verification of individuals encountered at the border. The other two men were listed as “unknown subjects,” which is unheard of, according to a JW federal law enforcement source. “In all my years I’ve never seen that before,” a veteran federal law enforcement agent told JW.
A week earlier six men—one from Afghanistan, five from Pakistan—were arrested in nearby Patagonia, a quaint ranch town that sits 20 miles north of the Mexican border city of Nogales. Federal authorities publicly confirmed those arrests after local media learned about them. JW has broken a number of stories involving serious terrorist threats on the southern border that have been disputed on the record by various Obama administration officials. Among these is an April report—confirmed by high-level Mexican authorities—about ISIS operating camps near the U.S. border in areas known as Anapra and Puerto Palomas west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.
Last fall JW was the first to report on an Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) plot orchestrated from Ciudad Juárez to attack the U.S. with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED). As a result of JW’s reporting Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army base in El Paso, increased security. The threat was imminent enough to place agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies on alert. A few weeks later JW reported that four ISIS terrorists were arrested by federal authorities and the Texas Department of Public Safety in McAllen and Pharr.

But in the politically correct climate of this administration, one person noted that little, if anything, will come of this.
@JudicialWatch They’ll get off by crying that they were being profiled and calling everyone a bigot or Islamaphobe.

One person, oddly, found the whole thing funny — but he was quickly shot down.

@JudicialWatch Why would anyone find this funny? Or question if you know what you’re talking about. JW owed far more credit than it’s given.

December 2, the date the woman and her accomplices were detained, is also significant. That’s the date a husband and wife team of jihadists took 14 lives at a Christmas celebration in San Bernardino, California.
