Tomorrow, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Unfortunately, it’s just been revealed that Mexican drug cartels and Middle Eastern jihadists have teamed up to mark the occasion by launching a series of terrorist attacks along the U.S. border on and around Inauguration Day.
Judicial Watch reported that members of drug cartels aligned with terrorists last week to launch an attack near the site of a new U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. The shootout that took place there left 13 people dead at a construction site right across the border from Laredo, Texas.
The goal of the attacks is to reportedly send a message to Trump.
“Cartels usually don’t work with jihadists for fear of having the border shut down,” a federal law enforcement official said, according to Conservative Tribune. However, Trump is “causing so much disruption in Mexico that they are partnering to send a message as to who is in control.”
“This is as outrageous as a small group of guys crashing planes into U.S. buildings,” the official continued.
Nuevo Laredo is just one border down that these thugs are planning to target, as other targets include Matamoros, Reynosa and Ciudad Juarez. One confidential source said militant Islamists are already in Apodaca, Nuevo León, about 130 miles south of the Texas border.
A Mexican law enforcement report specifically stated that terrorists have agents along the border “principally in Tijuana, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas.” An informant told the authorities that “they are only waiting for the order and the times to carry out a simultaneous attack in the different ports of entry or cities of the United States of America.”
We can only hope that Trump is able to stop these terror attacks after he takes office.
