The Islamic State Reportedly planned on smuggling English-speaking terrorists past the US-Mexico border in an attempt to carry out financial attacks to cripple the US economy.
In what seems to be a terror deployment plan straight out the screenplay from Sicario: Day of the Soldado, Islamic terror assets were to move into the US via Mexico.
The information was provided to the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism by Abu Henricki, a Canadian-Trinidadian citizen who ultimately decided the plan wasn’t worth it.
“They were going to move me to the Mexican side [of the US-Mexico border] via Puerto Rico. This was mastermind[ed] by a guy in America. Where he is, I do not know,” Henricki said in the report. “That information, the plan came from someone from the New Jersey state from America. I was going to take a boat [from Puerto Rico] into Mexico. He was going to smuggle me in.”
The end goal: financial attacks that would damage the US economy.
According to Henricki, ISIS had access to fake passports and IDs to carry out the attacks.
“Apparently, they have the contacts or whatever papers they can get to a false ID, false passports [to send me out for this kind of attack,] he said. “They have their system of doing it. So that’s maybe the way that I could have gone out with other individuals. It wasn’t me alone.”
After refusing to carry out the plan, Henricki was reportedly imprisoned by ISIS, along with his Canadian wife, from late 2016 to early 2017. During that time, he was starved and tortured.
“I knew I went to prison because I said no,” he said. “But they wouldn’t say that.”
The ICSVE reported that terrorists have managed to infiltrate Europe through irregular immigration routes, which ultimately lead to the deadly attacks in Paris, France and Brussels, Belgium.
Whether or not the porous border of the southwestern United States will become a secret highway for terrorists remains to be seen, but the ICSVE’s report paints a dark picture.
“Whatever one thinks of President Donald Trump’s heightened rhetoric about the US-Mexican border and his many claims that it is vulnerable to terrorists,” the report read, “ISIS apparently also thought so.”
