When the woman was captured she was in possession of the region's gas pipeline plans. Authorities described her as an "Islamic Refugee." She was pulled over for a traffic stop by a deputy sheriff in Luna County, New Mexico.
It's not the first time someone has tried to exploit the weak US border:
Luna County shares a 54-mile long border with Mexico. County authorities alerted the U.S. Border Patrol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) has been deployed to the area to investigate, sources with firsthand knowledge of the probe confirm. This arrest comes just 3 days after the terrorist attack on an Orlando night club that left 49 citizens murdered.
Officials said that the gas pipeline plans in the woman’s possession include the area surrounding Deming, New Mexico. Deming is a Luna County city situated about 35 miles north of the Mexican border and 60 miles west of Las Cruces. It has a population of about 15,000. Last year one local publication listed Deming No. 1 on a list of the “ten worst places” to live in New Mexico due to high unemployment, poverty, crime and a horrible public education system.
The entire region is a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), according to the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center due to the large amounts of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and marijuana smuggled through the state by Mexican traffickers. Specifically, the renowned Juárez and Sinaloa cartels operate in the area, the feds affirm in a report.
In the past few years, numerous stories have been written about Mexican drug traffickers smuggling probable ISIS terrorists into the United States through the porous southern border. Just last July this publication ran a story on 5 such persons that were detain by officials before being release by the Obama administration. Also last summer high-level sources on both sides of the Mexico-U.S. border offered alarming details to Judicial Watch about an operation in which cartels smuggle foreigners from countries with terrorist links into a small Texas rural town near El Paso. Classified as Special Interest Aliens (SIA) by the U.S. government, the foreigners get transported to stash areas in Acala, a rural crossroads located around 54 miles from El Paso on a state road – Highway 20. Once in the U.S., the SIAs wait for pick-up in the area’s sand hills just across Highway 20.
Extremism, when it comes to any religion, is a bad thing. But when it comes to Islam extremism it is costing lives in our great country as well as all over the world.
Securing our border is something that needs to be done soon. If it gets done soon it could potentially save the lives of millions.
