At least four suspected members of the Islamic State were arrested in Nicaragua this week; raising serious questions and concerns over foreign agents’ ability to enter the United States through the US-Mexico border.
“Four suspected members of the Islamic State terror group were captured by authorities in Nicaragua on Tuesday after entering the country illegally from Costa Rica, according to officials,” reports Fox News.
“The Nicaraguan National Police said in a statement the four men were caught around 10 a.m. by members of the country’s armed forces after entering through an unauthorized crossing point known as La Guasimada in the Cardenas municipality, located on the southwestern border with Costa Rica,” adds Fox.
Two men have been identified as Egyptian nationals and the other two came from Iraq.
“The Egyptians were identified by police as Mohamed Ibrahim, 33, and Mahmoud Samy Eissa, 26, while the Iraqis were Ahmed Ghanim Mohamed Al Jubury, 41 and Mustafa Ali Mohamed Yaoob, 29. The first three men arrived in Costa Rica on June 9, according to their immigration documents given to police,” confirms the report.
Earlier this month, a detained ISIS member confirmed the group had plans to smuggle foreign fighters into the US through Central America.
A new report is highlighting the growing dangers posed by the escalating immigration crisis; with a detained ISIS member confirming the group plotted to send terrorists into America using the porous US-Mexico border.
“A chilling confession from a captured ISIS fighter has shed light on how the terrorist group intended to exploit the vulnerabilities of the U.S. border with Mexico, using English speakers and westerners to take advantage of smuggling routes and target financial institutions,” reports Fox News.
“Seized ISIS fighter Abu Henricki, a Canadian citizen with dual citizenship with Trinidad, last month said that he was sought out by the violent insurgency’s leadership to attack the U.S from a route starting in Central America, according to a study by the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE) and published in Homeland Security Today,” adds the author.
“ISIS has organized plots in Europe with returnees so it seems entirely plausible that they wanted to send guys out to attack. The issue that makes a North American attack harder is the travel is more difficult from Syria,” said Anne Speckhard, who co-conducted the study. “So the idea that they would instead use people who were not known to their own governments as having joined ISIS might make it possible for them to board airplanes.”
BREAKING NOW: Final ISIS Stronghold Liberated, Islamic State ‘Has Officially Crumbled’
American-backed forces liberated the last territory controlled by ISIS-fighters Thursday; ending a “brutal empire” that at its peak ruled over eight million people across the Middle East.
“The caliphate has crumbled, and the final offensive is over. While the official announcement hasn’t yet been made – Fox News has been told that this village, the last ISIS stronghold, is liberated,” reports Fox News.

“It’s the first time since we’ve been here in Syria for five days that the bombs have stopped dropping and the gunfire has disappeared. We have witnessed the end of the caliphate – the brutal empire that once ruled over 8 million people – is gone,” adds the article. “Troops here are now bringing down the black flags of ISIS. The flags no longer fly over the town, instilling fear.”
ANARCHY IN THE UK: Vicious Hate Preacher Released from UK Prison
Anti-western and pro-ISIS Islamic cleric Anjem Choudary was released from a United Kingdom jail this week; serving half his prison sentence for urging Islamic State fighters to wage holy war on the UK.
“He was seen this morning leaving prison in a car with blacked out windows, escorted by two police vehicles,” writes the Sun. “Later, he was seen leaving the hostel flanked by cops. When asked questions about his release, he smiles but remained silent however.”
The hate preacher was released after “reaching the halfway point” of his five-year sentence.
His fiery sermons and vicious anti-western propaganda partially inspired at least two attacks in London: a vehicular assault on a major bridge and the killing of soldier Lee Rigby.
“I think it is disgusting that he is here and freed so early given what he is responsible for,” said one local. “It is repugnant to think that this man who inspired terrorists is now living here.”
