Feds Issue Terror Watch for the Texas/Mexico Border

The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com.

The warning follows an indictment unsealed this month in Texas federal court that accuses a Somali man in Texas of running a “large-scale smuggling enterprise” responsible for bringing hundreds of Somalis from Brazil through South America and eventually across the Mexican border. Many of the illegal immigrants, who court records say were given fake IDs, are alleged to have ties to other now-defunct Somalian terror organizations that have merged with active organizations like Al Shabaab, al-Barakat and Al-Ittihad Al-Islami.

Is this a good enough reason for us to have stricter border control?

  • Wow, they issue a terror watch for that part of the border, but won't send anyone to help. Gov Perry has been requesting 1000 Nat'l Guard for a year and a half and still has not received a response from Obama.

    I was thinking the same thing. This administration is really sinking low. Pretended terrorists might sneak across our border. Disgusting.

    So, you don't think that terrorists exist, you don't think they could/would sneak into the country through Mexico, or you don't believe the story. Which is it?

  • Why do you think the borders have been left unsecured?
