Mexican Border Crossing By ISIS Unlikely


The Department of Homeland Security issued a report in which they say that the likelihood of ISIS using the U.S./Mexico border to infiltrate the United States is unlikely. ISIS, also known as ISIL or the Islamic State, has been terrorizing Iraq and Syria for months and has beheaded several Western journalists and aid workers as well as carrying out mass genocide of non-Muslims. The United States has already begun airstrikes and will likely escalate their attack. But some Republican lawmakers have taken the crisis with ISIS to talk about border security, particularly in Mexico. Texas Governor Rick Perry and senator John McCain did their usual rabble rousing and fear mongering about the brown threat south of the border. DHS says it’s nonsense,

“At present, DHS is unaware of any specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland from ISIL.”

This is just another cynical attempt by to GOP to use another issue to scare people into buying into their xenophobic agenda. It’s interesting to me that whenever they talk about border security they never worry about our border with Canada. Forgetting, of course, that many of the 9/11 attackers entered through Canada and not Mexico. These lawmakers and their ilk are much less afraid of ISIS or the narcos entering the U.S. from Mexico than they are of regular Mexicans coming over to marry their daughters.
