On Friday, WND reported that a senior U.S. Defense Department analyst who served under President George Bush stated that the Islamic terrorist group, ISIS, could be planning to use the unsecured Mexican border to gain access into the United States through the cooperation of Mexican drug lords.

Andrew J. Ireland of WND said that former Defense Department analyst Michael Maloof, who is also a senior staff writer for WND and an expert on Middle East affairs said that the danger is real and if the border is not closed, American cities could become targets.

Maloof told Ireland, “ISIS may be working to infiltrate the U.S. with the aid of transnational drug cartels. MS-13, the notorious Mexican gang cartel would most likely be a partner with ISIS.”

“Mexican criminal gang MS-13 as a highly likely candidate for the partnership who are already in over 1,100 U.S. cities, which would make the infiltration capabilities are very, very high and the threat from them can be sooner rather than later,” said Maloof.

Ireland stated that this would not be the first time of it would almost certainly not be the first time a terrorist group has done so. Ireland said, “Officially recognized by the U.S. government as Special Interest Aliens (SIAs), since the onset of the war on terror WND and other media have reported multiple cases of foreign nationals, including al-Qaida sleeper operatives, being smuggled into the U.S. Further, in multiple instances the action was said to be aided by MS-13.”

In May 2000, ahead of the 2001 9/11 terrorist attacks, a report to the Committee on the Judiciary in the House of Representatives, the General Accounting Office said, “Alien smuggling is a significant and growing problem. Some are smuggled as part of a criminal or terrorist enterprise that can pose a serious threat to U.S. national security.”

In related news, the U.S. has increased security at foreign airports focusing on cellphones and other devices.

Passengers taking international flights into the United States now must have their cell phones, other electronic devices pass additional inspection before boarding planes Fox News reported on Saturday, and the Paulding County Republican Examiner reported the same news on Thursday.

Secretary Johnson of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said that threats from Islamic terrorists from overseas, ISIS and other terrorist sympathizers, may use airlines as a mode to attack western targets, especially in the U.S.
