Four men suspected of having ties to the Islamic State (ISIS) were arrested Tuesday in Nicaragua after Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) broadcasted an alert that the men might have entered Central America.
Two of the men were Iraqi, and the other two were Egyptian, according to Reuters. They entered Nicaragua from Costa Rica and were apprehended by Nicaraguan armed forces. All four have been deported back to Costa Rica.
“The Egyptians were named as Mohamed Ibrahim, 33, and Mahmoud Samy Eissa, 26, while the Iraqis were Ahmed Ghanim Mohamed Al Jubury, 41 and Mustafa Ali Mohamed Yaoob, 29,” the report said.
Three of the men were labeled in the HSI report, which Mexican media reported Tuesday. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that the government was aware of the presence of the men, and “dealing with the matter,” a sign of good faith from the Mexican government that has taken increased steps to secure its own border, as well as that of the United States since President Donald J. Trump threatened to levy tariffs against the nation.
Just weeks ago, reports were released in which a captured Canadian-born former ISIS member said the group planned to send terrorists into the United States via the open southern border.
Meanwhile, tensions are rising amid gridlock on securing that border, as promised by Trump.
Big League Politics reported:
President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.
In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House.
The Senate is scheduled to vote on humanitarian aid package for the southern border Wednesday afternoon. Democrats have stressed that none of the aid can be used for border security.

“I Needed to do Something:” Army Soldier Stops Armed Gunman on Kansas/Missouri Bridge
Master Sergeant David Royer likely saved lives.
A U.S. Army soldier driving across a bridge between Kansas and Missouri likely saved lives when he neutralized an armed, active shooter with his vehicle on Wednesday.
Leavenworth, Kansas Police Chief Patrick Kitchens said that Master Sergeant David Royer’s actions on the Centennial Bridge were “absolutely heroic.”
Royer, who is stationed at Fort Leavenworth, recounted the incident during a press conference outside the installation on Thursday. He had been driving across the bridge when he saw a man firing a rifle at oncoming traffic in a random fashion. Police initially suspected that the man was engaging in road-rage style violence, but authorities now believe the unnamed man was indiscriminately firing upon vehicles crossing the bridge.
“As the investigation unfolded, we learned this was an active shooter with multiple weapons on the bridge firing at cars with no particular association,” recounted the police chief.
“I knew people’s lives were in danger. I needed to do something. My military training kicked in. So, I took action as I saw appropriate, and I just knew I had to do something,” stated Royer during his remarks at Leavenworth on Thursday.
Royer states that he rammed into the shooter with his truck, pinning the gunman under his vehicle. The man wasn’t killed, and Kansas authorities are expected to announce criminal charges against the suspect within a few days.
Multiple cars had been shot by the gunman, and one individual- also an active-duty soldier at Fort Leavenworth- was injured. Royer is comparing the incident to some of his military experiences in high-stress environments, including a service assignment to Guatanamo Bay earlier in his career.
