REPORT: ISIS Planned to Send Terrorists Into U.S. Through Mexican Border

An ex-ISIS terrorist explained how the terrorist group wanted to send members into the United States.

A new report from Homeland Security Today, which interviewed a former ISIS soldier, said that the Islamic State planned to send terrorists into the United States through the open border with Mexico.

“They, what they will have, what they wanted to do, basically, is they wanted to do financial attacks. Financial attacks to cripple the [U.S.] economy,” Abu Henricki al Canadi said. “Apparently, they have the contacts or whatever papers they can get to a false ID, false passports [to send me out for this kind of attack]. They have their system of doing it. So that’s maybe the way that I could have gone out with other individuals. It wasn’t me alone. They were sending you to Puerto Rico and from Puerto Rico [to Mexico].”

Henricki is a dual Canadian-Trinidadian citizen who was detained in Syria, and subsequently began cooperating with authorities and researchers to help them learn how ISIS operates. He refused orders to carry out an attack on American soil, and said he was put into ISIS prison.

“One reason while I was also put in [ISIS] prison in 2016, I was asked to leave [ISIS] to go to America because I’m from that area. Cause they wanted [and] planned to do something and I refused,” he said. “I refused to do it. That is why also I’m put into [ISIS] prison and been tortured.”

President Donald J. Trump and the Department of Homeland Security have often warned about the risks of suspected terrorists crossing at the Southern border. Those warnings have been met with ridicule by Democrats.

Meanwhile, the threat of homegrown terrorism remains. Two weeks ago, a New Jersey man was arrested for allegedly providing material support to Hamas. He wanted to blow up Trump Tower in New York City.

Big League Politics reported:

A New Jersey man who discussed blowing up Trump Tower in New York City was arrested on terrorism charges Wednesday.

“The suspect, identified as Jonathan Xie, of Basking Ridge, was arrested Wednesday morning on charges of attempting to provide material support to a designated terror group, making false statements and transmitting a threat of interstate commerce,” according to NBC4. “Though he spoke of the attacks, authorities say there was no specific plot.”

The 20-year-old reportedly sent money abroad to Hamas, a Palestinian terror organization, and also discussed bombing the Israeli Consulate in New York City.

Xie, who tried to enlist in the Army earlier this year and lied on his applications, saying he was not associated with any terrorist organizations, allegedly spoke of his plans on Instagram.
