Mexico: Most-wanted U.S.-based jihadi apprehended at migrant detention center AUG 26, 2019 5:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER
This story shows yet again what the Left wants you to forget, that immigration is a national security issue. This is true despite the fact that Mohammed Azharuddin Chhipa was not actually trying to get into the United States; he was an American citizen trying to evade detection by U.S. counterterror agents as he went abroad to join the jihad. But if the pipeline goes one way, it goes the other way as well.
A Most-Wanted American Jihadist Caught in Mexico Was On His Way to Egypt, not the U.S. Border, by Todd Bensman, Center for Immigration Studies, August 21, 2019 (thanks to the Geller Report):
On or about August 16, Mexicos Federal Ministerial Police issued a rare and most curious public announcement: Mexican immigration had apprehended an American citizen who was wanted on an Interpol blue notice warrant on suspicion of supporting violent jihad and radical Islam on digital platforms.
The man, identified by Mexican media as Mohammed Azharuddin Chhipa, was found and arrested at a migrant detention center in the town of Huehuetan, just a few miles north of a heavily trammeled Guatemala border crossing for northward-moving U.S.-bound immigrants. Interpol blue notices are put out for international travelers that law enforcement suspects of involvement in a crime.
The U.S. national security concern about Chhipa was such that Mexico deported him by air to Washington D.C., no doubt into the hands of FBI counterterrorism investigators.
Absent further detail, an observer with just this knowledge might guess Chhipa was clandestinely returning home to America on the migrant trails from the Middle East battlefields of ISIS posing as a migrant, as did many dozens of European citizens to reach their home countries. But that is not the case, according to reliable intelligence community sources.
I was told that Chhipa actually was outbound from the United States and on his way toward a foreign jihadist group to join them, at least initially to Egypt. The reason Chhipa was traveling southward away from the United States was because he was on the American no-fly list and couldnt depart from an American airport. He decided to find one somewhere unnamed in Latin America where no fly lists are not a thing, sources told me
But while the idea that violent Islamic jihadists crossing into the United States at the southern border has inspired significant homeland security investment and programs, American jihadists have also sought to escape no-fly list restrictions and law enforcement detection by traveling southward over the same border to get to the jihad overseas .
And while we still dont know much about which American city this suspect called home or how his life came to this, its safe to assume the FBI had this man on its radar for quite a while before realizing he was gone. Hey, it happens.
They probably mean JUCHITAN! Not that phonetic spelling ...
For years the border agents found Korans in the garbage and belongings left behind at border crossings.
Who would have guessed that so many Latinos liked to read the Koran in Arabic languages like that?
Just some young guys with black beards and straight black hair coming over the border away from regular checkpoints. Name might be Miguel or might be Muhammad.
They took Obama into custody??? YAY!!!
What interests me is that the Islamic terrorists have not made the connections yet that the immigrant invasion provides probably the best opportunity for entry into this country. Mexico and Central and South America were Spanish colonies for hundreds of years. Many people living there look very Spanish. Spain was invaded by the Moors, who were the people of North Africa and are Muslims.
Q not followed by a U, and C with a double-H...that usually spells trouble.
Jihadi terrorists, just doing jobs US citizens refuse to do.
What makes you think they have not made the connection and are not coming here on a regular basis? Due to sponsors of terrorism willing to pay I would say they would pay top dollar, hire the very best guides and likely not get caught.
I have firmly believed for years they are doing this. I hear stories about illegals that don’t speak Spanish or very little Spanish traveling through. I may be wrong but I actually would be very shocked if they are not doing this.
What makes me think that is the mass murders we experience are tied to home grown lunatics and not jihadis. With this country’s penchant for “gun free zones” a ripe harvest awaits them. So why don’t they massacre a grade school every week?
When it happens too often, it loses its shock value.
