Homeland Security sources have confirmed that four Islamic terrorists have been apprehended in the last 36 hours by federal authorities and the Texas Department of Public Safety in McAllen and Pharr, the Examiner website reports today (October 9, 2014).
California Congressman Duncan Hunter -- a former Marine Corp Major and a member of the House Armed Services Committee -- disclosed that at least ten Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters have been caught crossing the Mexican border into Texas.
Hunter believes, "If you really want to protect Americans from ISIS, you secure the southern border." He went on to point out that, "ISIS doesn't have a navy, they don't have an air force, they don't have nuclear weapons. The only way that ISIS is going harm Americans is by coming in through the southern border -- which they already have."
The terrorists are believed to have flown from a Middle East country to Mexico City. They crossed the Mexican border into the U.S. and were planning to take a plane to New York City when they were captured.
