An ISIS operative who was arrested in Ohio is now warning ISIS terror cells are hiding in Mexico just waiting for the go-ahead to cross our porous border and launch attacks inside the U.S.
A report by the Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch reveals that Erick Jamal Hendricks, arrested in Ohio for conspiring to provide material support to ISIS, has testified the terror outfit has operatives waiting in Mexico.
According to Judicial Watch:
Hendricks contacted another ISIS operative, referred to as “CW-1”, who was arrested last summer, about working with him and several other terrorists to carry out attacks. “Hendricks allegedly told CW-1 that he ‘needed people’ and wanted to meet in person; that there were several ‘brothers’ located in Texas and Mexico; that he was attempting to ‘get brothers to meet face to face;’ and that he wanted ‘to get brothers to train together,'” according to a DOJ announcement.
Hendricks, a 35-year-old man living in North Carolina, was targeting members of the U.S. military at bases inside the U.S. He was also targeting Pamela Geller, one of the organizers of the “Draw Muhammad” event held in Garland, Texas, which was attacked by jihadis in May 2015. Only days before their attack, Hendricks was in contact with the pair who attempted to terrorize the “Draw Muhammad” event, according to the government filing.
Hendricks’ testimony should raise alarms, Judicial Watch said.
“The Hendricks case points to a broader issue of, not only homegrown terrorism, but the immense threat along the southern border,” the group said in a statement. “Islamic terrorists are training in southern border towns near American cities and have joined forces with Mexican drug cartels to infiltrate the United States.”
The Department of Homeland Security admitted Mexican drug cartels are helping ISIS sneak across the southern border to reconnoiter targets inside the U.S., according to GatewayPundit reports.
The Obama administration, meanwhile, continues to insist there is no threat from ISIS terror cells sneaking across our unprotected border. It was just a year ago reports found ISIS had set up training camps in Mexico and the Obama administration was doing nothing about them.
Further, Border Patrol sources leaked news that eight Syrian nationals were caught trying to sneak across our southern border earlier this year.
