“Islamic Refugee” With Gas Pipeline Plans Arrested in New Mexico Border County

JUNE 15, 2016
JudicialWatch.org

Police in a U.S. town bordering Mexico have apprehended an undocumented, Middle Eastern woman in possession of the region’s gas pipeline plans, law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch. Authorities describe the woman as an “Islamic refugee” pulled over during a traffic stop by a deputy sheriff in Luna County, New Mexico which shares a 54-mile border with Mexico. County authorities alerted the U.S. Border Patrol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) has been deployed to the area to investigate, sources with firsthand knowledge of the probe confirm.

The gas pipeline plans in the woman’s possession include the Deming region, law enforcement sources say. Deming is a Luna County city situated about 35 miles north of the Mexican border and 60 miles west of Las Cruces. It has a population of about 15,000. Last year one local publication listed Deming No. 1 on a list of the “ten worst places” to live in New Mexico due to high unemployment, poverty, crime and a horrible public education system. The entire region is a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), according to the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center due to the large amounts of methamphetamines, heroin, cocaine and marijuana smuggled through the state by Mexican traffickers. Specifically, the renowned Juárez and Sinaloa cartels operate in the area, the feds affirm in a report.

Judicial Watch has broken a number of stories in the last few years about Mexican drug traffickers smuggling Islamic terrorists into the United States through the porous southern border. Last summer high-level sources on both sides of the Mexico-U.S. border offered alarming details about an operation in which cartels smuggle foreigners from countries with terrorist links into a small Texas rural town near El Paso. Classified as Special Interest Aliens (SIA) by the U.S. government, the foreigners get transported to stash areas in Acala, a rural crossroads located around 54 miles from El Paso on a state road – Highway 20. Once in the U.S., the SIAs wait for pick-up in the area’s sand hills just across Highway 20.

A few months ago Judicial Watch reported that members of a cell of Islamic terrorists stationed in Mexico cross into the U.S. to explore targets for future attacks with the help of Mexican drug traffickers. Among the jihadists that travel back and forth through the porous southern border is a Kuwaiti named Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir, an ISIS operative who lives in the Mexican state of Chihuahua not far from El Paso, Texas. Khabir trained hundreds of Al Qaeda fighters in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen and has lived in Mexico for more than a year, according to Judicial Watch’s high-level Homeland Security sources. Now Khabir trains thousands of men—mostly Syrians and Yemenis—to fight in an ISIS base situated in the Mexico-U.S. border region near Ciudad Juárez. Khabir actually brags in a European newspaper article about how easy it is to stake out American targets because the border region is wide open. In the same story Foreign Affairs Secretary Claudia Ruiz, Mexico’s top diplomat, says she doesn’t understand why the Obama administration and the U.S. media are “culpably neglecting this phenomenon,” adding that “this new wave of fundamentalism could have nasty surprises in store for the United States.”

This recent New Mexico incident brings to mind a story Judicial Watch broke less than a year ago involving five young Middle Eastern men apprehended by Border Patrol in an Arizona town (Amado) situated about 30 miles from the Mexican border. Two of the Middle Eastern men were carrying stainless steel cylinders in backpacks, alarming Border Patrol officials enough to call the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for backup. A multitude of federal agents descended on the property and the two men carrying the cylinders were believed to be taken into custody by the FBI. 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. “In all my years I’ve never seen that before,” a veteran federal law enforcement agent told Judicial Watch.

Russia Moves Huge Number of Troops to Western Border

Appears to be preparing for war in December

by Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com | August 13, 2015


The official Russian government news agency reports the nation’s military is moving a large number of soldiers and equipment to the Western Military District.

“The General Staff and the Western Military District’s command have been working tightly on determining and specifying the personnel and hardware of the 20th combined army,” a military source told TASS.

“In particular, questions are being decided of complementing the army with units from other military districts and forming more mechanized infantry, armor, artillery, missile, reconnaissance and other brigades.”

The army will be “reformatted” by December 1st in the district that encompasses 2 million square kilometers of airspace and 3,000 kilometers along the border with Europe.

The Russian Air Force and Air Defense Army is armed with Sukhoi Su-34, Su-35S and Su-30MS jets, Kamov Ka-52, Mil Mi-28N, Mi-35, and Mi-MTV5 helicopters, and S-300, S-400 and Pantsir-S air defense systems, according to TASS.

Russia also plans to create a new tank army along the border. It will incorporate the Tamanskaya Mechanized Infantry Division and the Kantemirovskaya Tank Division, as well as the 27th Sevastopolskaya Mechanized Infantry Brigade and the 6th Tank Brigade.

Another tank army will be in place near Moscow by December 1st.

In addition, Russia will create a rapid reaction force of paratroopers that will coordinate with ground troops. According to the General Staff, the airborne troops will increase in size from 45,000 to 60,000.

In June NATO announced it would include around 40,000 troops in its rapid response Spearhead Force stationed in Eastern Europe on the border with Russia.

“The proposal would mark a significant increase in the number of NATO troops in the region, as there were just 4,000 troops there in 2014,” the International Business Times reported.

Caught on Camera: Illegals Smuggle Drugs Into Laredo Before Trump Visit

Shock footage validates Trump’s assertion on Mexicans bringing drugs into America

by Paul Joseph Watson | July 23, 2015


As Donald Trump prepared to arrive in Laredo for a tour of the US border, Infowars captured astounding footage which shows illegals sneaking across the Rio Grande river before they frantically throw huge bags of drugs into a vehicle and swim back to Mexico.

Infowars reporters Joe Biggs and Josh Owens traveled to Laredo to cover Trump’s highly publicized visit. While recording footage of the Rio Grande river, which forms part of the Mexico–US border, Owens spotted illegals crossing the water in the distance on rafts and began to film.

The clip then shows an individual holding open the trunk of a red Ford Explorer before four illegals frantically run up carrying huge packs of what are almost certainly drugs before quickly throwing them into the vehicle and fleeing back towards Mexico.

The vehicle then drives into America as one of the smugglers glances back towards Biggs and Owens.

Biggs and Owens immediately had to go into hiding and remove the license plates on their vehicle because they were spotted by the cartel during filming.

The footage validates Trump’s assertion, for which he has been vilified for weeks, that illegal immigrants are bringing drugs into the United States.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said during his announcement that he would run for president. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Trump was invited to visit the border by the National Border Patrol Council and will arrive in Laredo later today, although the participation of Border Patrol agents was subsequently canceled after the national AFL-CIO-controlled union intervened.

Mexican drug cartels make up to $29 billion annually from U.S. drug sales, with 90% of the cocaine that enters America transiting through Mexico. The majority of marijuana and methamphetamines that are sold in the U.S. also come from Mexico.

The footage illustrates the porous nature of the US border and how easy it would be for ISIS terrorists – who reportedly have set up training bases nearby, to bring militants, weapons and explosives into America.

US Border Patrol Helicopter Shot At From Mexico Side, Chopper Makes Emergency Landing In Texas

“Our helicopter actually landed in Laredo and there were no injuries”
US Border Patrol Helicopter Shot At From Mexico Side, Chopper Makes Emergency Landing In Texas

by Sneha Shankar | International Business Times | June 6, 2015


A United States Border Patrol helicopter was fired on from the Mexican side of the border and forced to make an emergency landing in Texas on Friday, U.S. authorities said. The helicopter was flying over an area, infamous for illegal border crossings and drug smuggling, CNN reported.

“Our helicopter actually landed in Laredo and there were no injuries,” the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said, according to CNN, which added that it was not clear if the gunfire hit the helicopter.

However, there are contradicting reports about the gunfire. According to Laredo Morning Times, which cited Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar, five shots are believed to have been fired in the direction of the helicopter, and two of those hit it. Laredo is the county seat of Webb County.

A crackdown on children attempting to illegally enter the United States by Mexico and other Latin American nations has cut this year’s surge to a still-high 30,000, but proponents believe that has made the situation even more desperate for kids, leading to greater crime and deaths.

“Those that are fleeing and trying to get out of their countries are now using even more dangerous tactics with more criminal entities and costing them even more money to get through to safety,” said Kimberly Haynes, director of children’s services for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.

Baltimore-based LIRS is a key player in caring for unaccompanied children crossing into the United States and advocates for joining the kids with their parents already in the United States. Haynes told Secrets that those they have interviewed this year arrive with horrible stories of how smugglers got them through Mexico and into the United States.

Worse, she said, many arrive minus a brother or sister, believed to have died in the process.

Video: Law Student No Longer Wants To Work For Border Control After Being Harassed And Tased For No Reason

Detained for 3-4 hours over “cute dog” comment and for not moving when ordered
Video: Law Student No Longer Wants To Work For Border Control After Being Harassed And Tased For No Reason

by Steve Watson | InfoWars | May 11, 2015


A graduate studying criminal justice who had hoped to pursue a career in the Border Patrol, has abandoned the ambition after being stopped and physically harassed by Border Control agents for no reason.

Twenty-one-year-old Jess Cooke, who graduated from SUNY Canton this weekend with a law enforcement leadership degree, was shoved and tased by an agent after she refused to obey orders to move. Cooke captured the incident on video.

As revealed in the footage, Cooke was detained for a secondary inspection after agents claimed she acted nervously at the checkpoint in Waddington, New York, on the US-Canada border.

A female agent decided that Cooke’s non-response to a comment about her dog being “cute,” was sufficient grounds to search her car.

Cooke refused the search, and was ordered to get out of her vehicle and wait for a K-9 Unit to arrive.

When Cooke began filming the incident and questioning the agents as to why she was being detained, they became increasingly uncommunicative and ordered her to move away from them.

Cooke refused, and told a male supervisor that she would sue him if he touched her when he threatened to physically move her himself.

Still, Cooke refused to move, and the agent shoved her, then broke out a taser, shooting Cooke in the back and shocking her with 50 thousands volts, causing her to scream and panic.

The agents then immediately claimed that it was Cooke who had put her hands on them first.

“I was cuffed for over an hour after being out in the Border Patrol car and then brought to the U.S. Customs station in Ogdensburg. I sat there for a good 3-4 hours and got sent home due to they couldn’t figure out what charges to put on me,” Cooke said in a written response.

The vehicle was eventually searched, and nothing untoward was discovered.

Cooke says she has cuts and bruises from the scuffle and marks on her wrists from being handcuffed. The Border Control has not responded for requests for comment.

Border Patrol Checkpoints: How Far is Too Far?

“They basically are interpreting federal law to say that they are allowed to do temporary checkpoints anywhere within 100 miles of the border”
Border Patrol Checkpoints: How Far is Too Far?

by Fox 28 | May 10, 2015


SUNY Canton student Jessica Cooke was tased at a Border Patrol checkpoint after asking questions to agents on Thursday. Cooke was out of the car and asking those questions because she didn’t think Border Patrol had the legal standing to hold her. She was told to wait while a police dog unit was called in.

So how far does the Border Patrol’s jurisdiction reach? The answer is well beyond what you probably imagine as the border.

“They basically are interpreting federal law to say that they are allowed to do temporary checkpoints anywhere within 100 miles of the border,” said Alexis Karteron, Senior Staff Attorney New York Civil Liberties Union.

That means no matter where you are here in the North Country, the Border Patrol can set up temporary checkpoints and potentially stop you. Nearly all of New York state is within that 100-mile zone.

Infowars reporters Joe Biggs and Josh Owens take to the skies in search of the reported ISIS base hidden among cartel compounds just across the U.S. border in Anapra, Mexico.

While flying over Anapra there are very strange, secluded compounds with what look to be religious grounds nearby.

There is also a bizarre line of people walking to a truck in the middle of nowhere just at the base of the mountains where the border opens up and provides free reign into the United States.
