Mohamed Ali is not the Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. or Muhammad Ali you and I know. This Mohamed Ali is a Somali man believed to be in Mexico and preparing to cross the Mexico border with Texas into the U.S. Homeland Security has issued a “terror watch,” for the man believed to have ties to Al Shabaab, a Somali terrorist organization with strong ties to al-Qaeda. See video below.
An indictment was unsealed in Texas federal court earlier this month that revealed that a Somali man, Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane, led a human smuggling ring that brought East Africans, including Somalis with ties to terror groups, from Brazil and across the Mexican border and into Texas.
The same Fox News report says “hundreds of Somalis suspected of terrorist ties” have crossed the porous and ignored U.S. border.
In recent years, American Somalis have been recruited by Al Shabaab to travel to Somalia, where they are often radicalized by more extremist or operational anti-American terror groups, which Al Shabaab supports. The recruiters coming through the Mexican border are the ones who could be the most dangerous, according to law enforcement officials.
And our friends in Mexico:
In addition to the Somali immigration issue, Mexican smugglers are coaching some Middle Eastern immigrants before they cross the border – schooling them on how to dress and giving them phrases to help them look and sound like Latinos, law enforcement sources told FoxNews.com.
There have been a number of certain communities that have noticed this, villages in northern Mexico where Middle Easterners try to move into town and learn Spanish,” Neuhaus Schaan said. “People were changing there names from Middle Eastern names to Hispanic names.”
Security experts say the push by illegal immigrants to try to fit in also could be the realization of what officials have feared for years: Latin American drug cartels are helping jihadist groups bring terrorists across the Mexican border.
Every U.S. Representative and Senator holding office for more than 5 years should be voted out of office for allowing American vulnerability on our Southern Borders. Immediately, we should hold all law enforcement responsible for refusing to follow U.S. immigration laws. Every sanctuary city must lose all federal funding.
