Mexico Confirms U.S. Warned Them About ISIS Suspects Headed To Border
Mexican law enforcement officials have confirmed that the United States has warned them that there are three ISIS-linked terror suspects traveling through Central America who are potentially trying to reach the U.S. border by traveling through Mexico.
Breitbart border experts Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz exclusively reported on Monday that “Mexican Federal Police are on alert, preparing to encounter or arrest Ahamed Ghanim Mohamed Al Juburi from Iraq, and Ibrahim Mohamed and Mohamed Eissa from Egypt.”
Darby and Ortiz obtained official documents from the Mexican government showing that it was warned by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security late last week about the three suspects.
“The three men are believed to have entered through Panama in May, crossed through Costa Rica on June 9, and could be headed to Mexico, a leaked internal security memo revealed,” Darby and Ortiz reported. “The documents make reference to BITMAP, the U.S. Homeland Security Investigations’ Biometric Identification Transnational Migration Alert Program, a collection of databases on ‘special interest aliens, violent criminals, fugitives and confirmed or suspected terrorists encountered within illicit pathways.'”
On Tuesday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that his administration had received information about the suspects and was taking action.
“Lopez Obrador was responding to a reporter who asked about information from U.S. authorities that three ISIS members could enter Mexico,” Reuters reported. “On Monday, Mexico’s security minister said these people would be detained if they tried to come into Mexican territory.”
The story was largely ignored in the U.S., which elicited reaction from top public figures, including Donald Trump Jr.
Darby tweeted: “1. We broke news that US identified ISIS suspects heading to border and warned Mexico. 2. Mexico’s President and other high ranking officials are now on record saying it’s true. 3. US media outlets still aren’t reporting on it, but Mexico’s media outlets are reporting on it.”
Trump Jr. quote retweeted Darby’s tweet, writing: “Why is the mainstream media ignoring such a massive story from @brandondarby and @BreitbartNews? Could it be that it doesn’t fit into their pro-open borders narrative?”
