"Publicly, U.S. and Mexico have denied that Islamic terrorists are operating in the southern border region," the organization continued, "but the rapid deployment of FBI brass in the aftermath of JW's report seems to indicate otherwise.
"A Mexican army field grade officer and a Mexican federal police inspector were among the sources that confirmed to JW that ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas. The base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as 'Anapra' situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua."
The report from Judicial Watch earlier this week followed other reports from the organization in recent months that Islamic terrorists have been captured in Texas after coming across the U.S. border from Mexico.
Judicial Watch said its sources within the Department of Homeland Security said several ISIS terror group members were arrested by federal authorities and the Texas Department of Public Safety in McAllen and Pharr.
The reports conflict with claims by the Department of Homeland Security that there is no imminent danger of ISIS breaching the nation's southern border.
In its report this week, Judicial Watch said its sources for the information about the ISIS camp were high-level.
The report detailed the terror group in Anapra and said there was more.
"Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm," Judicial Watch said.
It was during a recent joint operation that "Mexican army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as 'plans' of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the U.S. Army's 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation," Judicial Watch said.'
