Skip to comments.Islamic State location less than 2 miles from border; ISIS exploits designated ‘wilderness’ areas

Youve no doubt seen the report, from the always-superb Judicial Watch, that theres an Islamic State, or ISIS, camp in Mexico near El Paso, Texas. The report follows up on information Judicial Watch obtained in August 2014 (which LU reported on here).

The camp has been widely reported as being 8 miles from the border. Its more like 8 miles from the center of El Paso. What may not be clear from the verbal report is that the Mexican zone where the Islamic State camp has been reported a suburb, or colonia, of Ciudad Juarez named Anapra is actually right on the U.S. border. The closest houses on the Mexican side are only a few dozen yards from the border, across a back road that runs right along the border line.
The whole of Anapra doesnt extend more than 2 miles from the border. (See Map 1.) And the fence at the border is a flimsy affair, as you can see in the images below. This fence is Americas defense against incursion from the ISIS camp.

Understanding the deeper story in this case requires reorienting our mental geography, because the closest point of vulnerability to the camp isnt El Paso. Its New Mexico. That clearly doesnt mean that Texas isnt in this fight. But it does mean that the extra effort Texas has been making to strengthen border security against cartel criminals isnt going to help with this problem.
The maps tell this story, so lets get them going.

Why doesn’t Mexico wipe them out?
The Latin American underclass is being Islamacized. The sunnies(Moslem Brotherhood and Wahabbis) are competing against the shites (Iran and Hezbollah) there. Actually, Chinese are also pretty active. Russian influence is almost gone, however.
From what I saw on an HBO special, the police and army are just two different drug gangs. I just wonder how far the corruption extends into America. The open borders are NOT for ease of entry of strawberry pickers. Maybe some day we will find out how far drug money has gone into the Chamber and other open immigration pushers.
I think it has been scam “cover” operation about the need of cheap labor to cover the free flow of drugs.
The Mexican "authorities", such as they are, welcome a porous border. Things are not going to get any better. Govern yourself accordingly.
Yeh I forgot to put the sarc tag on. LOL! Mexico is a failed narco state. ISIS would probably kick their azz in a fair fight anyway or more likely is paying them off.
I have predicted in the past that at some point we will have to send troops in there to clean up the mess and get the Mexican government put back together again. Would not surprise me in the least. Of course that’s if the CIA decides to get out of the drug running business.
