Two Suspected ISIS Recruits Traveling to Mexico Busted in Texas

Ask a layman, and they’d think that the only reason we need a border fence is to protect the country against illegal immigration. That’s just one benefit of a border fence (which we barely even have).

In Mexico, the nation is run by the drug cartels. Drug cartels have killed far more Americans than ISIS ever have, but you probably haven’t seen the media cover that. For that reason, border security also serves a national security purpose.

But while we’re on the topic of ISIS, if they are to enter America, how do you think they’re going to do it? They could try to enter the country as a refugee, but there’s a good possibly they’ll get screened and prevented if they try that. So how else to enter the country? Across our unsecured border, of course.

And just that is happening.

As Breitbart reported:

Two Wisconsin men have been arrested in San Angelo, Texas, on charges of providing material support to ISIS. The men were traveling to Mexico and allegedly had plans to travel on to Iraq or Syria.

Jason Michael Ludke, 35, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Yosvany Padilla-Conde, 30, an illegal alien who has been living in Wisconsin, were arrested on October 5 by Tom Green County Sheriff David Jones and a team of federal agents, according to Joe Hyde, president of San Angelo Live.

Sheriff Jones told Hyde he had received a warning from the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) that the two suspected ISIS recruits could be heading through his county in route to Mexico. After surveilling the two men for a short time, deputies, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers, and FBI agents conducted a traffic stop and the two men were taken into custody.

Sheriff Green stated Ludke was detained on an outstanding warrant from Wisconsin. His traveling companion, Padilla-Conde, having been identified as an illegal alien, was held on immigration charges.

Border patrol has been saying since 2014 that ISIS could easily enter America through the US-Mexico border. Heck – even the Mexican government is saying the same.

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

We don’t need to build a wall just to prevent against illegal immigration – that’s just one benefit (and a huge one). Another huge benefit is that it’ll protect against against future ISIS attacks on American soil.

Donald Trump should see this and use it as another reason to secure the border. Get the word out and share this post on Facebook and Twitter?
