Republican Congressman: ISIS Is On Our Border!
Franks, appearing on E.W. Jackson’s radio program over the weekend, appeared to cite a report from a conservative website that has been dismissed by federal law enforcement officials about ISIS operating in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, on the border with El Paso.
“It is true, that we know that ISIS is present in Ciudad Juarez or they were within the last few weeks,” Franks said. “So there’s no question that they have designs on trying to come into Arizona. The comment that I’ve made is that if unaccompanied minors can cross the border then certainly trained terrorists probably can to. It is something that is real.”
Franks appears to be referring to a report from the conservative watchdog website Judicial Watch, which report ISIS was operating on the U.S. Mexican border.
A DHS spokesman said the Judicial Watch report was false, telling the Daily Mailthat “we are aware of absolutely nothing credible to substantiate this claim.”[su_csky_ad]
