Judicial Watch said high-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border was issued. The organization said agents for the Departments of Defense, Justice and Homeland Security have been put on alert and told to aggressively work all sources and potential leads.The group said its sources say the Mideast terrorist army ISIS is now operating in the Mexican city of

ISIS, the sources say, is planning to attack the El Paso, Texas U.S. with car bombs or improvised
explosive devices carried by vehicles.
One source told Judicial Watch intelligence officials “picked up radio talk and chatter” pointing to an attack on the border.

shows it has expressed “an increased interest” in crossing the border to
conduct an attack.
The three-page bulletin, obtained by Fox News, was titled “ISIS Interest on the US Southwest Border” and distributed to law enforcement Thursday.
The bulletin coincides with WND’s report three days ago that the FBI and Department of Homeland Security were so worried airstrikes in

reported President Obama acknowledged he has no strategy to
deal with the terrorist army.
Obama was blasted for the admission.
Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said the strategy should be simply “to finish them off.”
“Not to contain them … but to fundamentally finish them off. And I don’t think the president sees this moment for what it is,” he said.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., tweeted: “#ISIS is largest, richest terrorist group in history & 192,000 dead in #
Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., lamented, “I’m not sure the severity of the problem has really sunk in to the administration just yet.”
Rogers said Obama had plenty of warning,
because, “Even the president said he was talking about this to Iraqi officials
over a year ago.”
He maintained the administration could have attacked
ISIS targets long before it gained

intelligence sources told WND just last
week ISIS was training jihadis to attack targets in the U.S.
Also last week, Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., warned ISIS is “rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major
city.” The ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee in the U.S.
Senate said the U.S.
now is in “the most dangerous position we’ve ever been in.”
And, as WND also reported last week, Republican Gov. Rick Perry of
Texas warned terrorists from the Islamic State could be
sneaking into Texas across the Southwest
border at any time, due to the Obama administration’s failures in Iraq and in
securing the border.
Pentagon press secretary Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby immediately denied any evidence of Perry’s claims.
“I’ve seen no indication that they are coming across the border with

they have aspirations to hit Western targets and that we’ve got to take that
seriously and have to try to be ready for it,” Kirby told CNN.
Mexican officials also quickly rejected the governor’s warnings.
“Mexican authorities have no record of the presence of Islamist extremist groups or individuals in
Mexico,” said Ariel Moutsatsos, minister for
public affairs at the embassy in Washington.
“We take all possible measures to impede any terrorist activity in our
But Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, backed-up Perry’s warning of terror threats from the largely unsecured U.S.-Mexico border.
“The FBI director previously said … that there were people from terrorist countries who were assuming Hispanic names, and learning a few words of Spanish, and coming in,” Gohmert said. “The FBI director himself testified to that before Congress. So we know that this kind of thing has been going on. Gov. Perry isn’t saying anything that’s new, it just takes a little while for the mainstream to catch up.”
The congressman added that more recently, Marine Gen. John Kelly, the commander of South Command, testified before the House and Senate this year “that the penetration of our Southern border by criminal cartels, as well as terrorist organizations, poses, in his words, an ‘existential threat the
Just two days ago, an terrorism expert who advises the Iraqi intelligence services said there are 100,000 ISIS recruits, much higher than the 20,000-to-30,000 estimated by most foreign observers.

He said recruitment has never been easier, because the organization’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, “carries now the flag of the jihadi against the crusader.”
