Judicial Watch

Police in a U.S. town bordering Mexico have apprehended an undocumented, Middle Eastern woman in possession of the region’s gas pipeline plans, law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch. Authorities describe the woman as an “Islamic refugee” pulled over during a traffic stop by a deputy sheriff in Luna County, New Mexico which shares a 54-mile border with Mexico. County authorities alerted the U.S. Border Patrol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) has been deployed to the area to investigate, sources with firsthand knowledge of the probe confirm.

The gas pipeline plans in the woman’s possession include the Deming region, law enforcement sources say. Deming is a Luna County city situated about 35 miles north of the Mexican border and 60 miles west of Las Cruces. It has a population of about 15,000. Last year one local publication listed Deming No. 1 on a list of the “ten worst places” to live in New Mexico due to high unemployment, poverty, crime and a horrible public education system. The entire region is a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), according to the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center due to the large amounts of methamphetamines, heroin, cocaine and marijuana smuggled through the state by Mexican traffickers. Specifically, the renowned Juárez and Sinaloa cartels operate in the area, the feds affirm in a report.

Judicial Watch has broken a number of stories in the last few years about Mexican drug traffickers smuggling Islamic terrorists into the United States through the porous southern border. Last summer high-level sources on both sides of the Mexico-U.S. border offered alarming details about an operation in which cartels smuggle foreigners from countries with terrorist links into a small Texas rural town near El Paso. Classified as Special Interest Aliens (SIA) by the U.S. government, the foreigners get transported to stash areas in Acala, a rural crossroads located around 54 miles from El Paso on a state road – Highway 20. Once in the U.S., the SIAs wait for pick-up in the area’s sand hills just across Highway 20.

A few months ago Judicial Watch reported that members of a cell of Islamic terrorists stationed in Mexico cross into the U.S. to explore targets for future attacks with the help of Mexican drug traffickers. Among the jihadists that travel back and forth through the porous southern border is a Kuwaiti named Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir, an ISIS operative who lives in the Mexican state of Chihuahua not far from El Paso, Texas. Khabir trained hundreds of Al Qaeda fighters in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen and has lived in Mexico for more than a year, according to Judicial Watch’s high-level Homeland Security sources. Now Khabir trains thousands of men—mostly Syrians and Yemenis—to fight in an ISIS base situated in the Mexico-U.S. border region near Ciudad Juárez. Khabir actually brags in a European newspaper article about how easy it is to stake out American targets because the border region is wide open. In the same story Foreign Affairs Secretary Claudia Ruiz, Mexico’s top diplomat, says she doesn’t understand why the Obama administration and the U.S. media are “culpably neglecting this phenomenon,” adding that “this new wave of fundamentalism could have nasty surprises in store for the United States.”

This recent New Mexico incident brings to mind a story Judicial Watch broke less than a year ago involving five young Middle Eastern men apprehended by Border Patrol in an Arizona town (Amado) situated about 30 miles from the Mexican border. Two of the Middle Eastern men were carrying stainless steel cylinders in backpacks, alarming Border Patrol officials enough to call the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for backup. A multitude of federal agents descended on the property and the two men carrying the cylinders were believed to be taken into custody by the FBI. Only three of the men’s names were entered in the Border Patrol’s E3 reporting system, which is used by the agency to track apprehensions, detention hearings and removals of illegal immigrants. E3 also collects and transmits biographic and biometric data including fingerprints for identification and verification of individuals encountered at the border. The other two men were listed as “unknown subjects,” which is unheard of. “In all my years I’ve never seen that before,” a veteran federal law enforcement agent told Judicial Watch.

Bombshell: Top Al-Qaeda Terrorist Adnan Shukrijumah Held Meetings in New Mexico THIS YEAR

Screen grab by Michelle Malkin

Gateway Pundit

Michelle Malkin asked last month, “Where in the world is jihad pilot Adnan Shukrijumah?”

Sources for the watchdog group Judicial Watch say they have the answer: The ‘Most Wanted’ al Qaeda terrorist was conspiring with narco-terrorists in New Mexico in March of this year.

Shukrijumah has been wanted by the government for over a decade. One of his aliases, Ja’far al-Tayar, translates to ‘Jafar the pilot’, according to Malkin. The federal government issued a material witness arrest warrant for him in 2003 and placed a $5 million bounty on him. In 2010 he was indicted by a federal grand jury on terrorist charges. In July, 2004 he was reported to have met MS-13 leaders in Honduras seeking the group’s help in smuggling terrorists in to the United States through the southern border.

A Judicial Watch report released this week puts Shukrijumah in New Mexico twice in recent years along with a fellow most wanted terrorist and two alleged narco-terrorist operatives.

During the 2010/2011 timeframe, Karakrah and Huerta met with two of the FBI’s “most wanted” terrorists: Jaber A. Elbaneh and Adnan Gulshair el Shukrijumah (a/k/a: “Javier Robles”). The meetings took place in a private home in Anthony, NM. The four men discussed the movement of drugs, money and people.

The plots were further planned by fellow conspirators at a “mosque” on Redd Road in El Paso, as well as two other “mosques” in the city.

“Karakrah, Huerta, Elbaneh and el Shukrijumah all met again in Anthony, NM in March 2014 according to Judicial Watch sources.”

The revelation that Shukrijumah was in the U.S. this year was part of a blockbuster Judicial Watch report entitled, El Paso: Nexus of a Narco-Terror Ring
.
The story stems from the August arrest in Chicago of Emad Karakrah on a charge of making a false bomb claim. Karakrah was pulled over while he was flying an ISIS flag from his car (or a Palestinian flag with the word ISIS written on it, there are conflicting reports.)

Judicial Watch describes Karakrah and his alleged partner Hector Huerta.

“Karakrah is a logistics and transportation operative for militant Islamists in the United States, according to sources close to the investigation. He moves people, weapons, explosives, drugs, money, and other materiel to terrorist cells operating in Chicago, Brooklyn, NY and Saddle Brook, NJ — among other locations across the United States. More than a decade ago Karakrah smuggled drugs and weapons for the Juarez drug cartel in Mexico. In July of this year, he was on a supply run to a militant Islamist cell operating out of a basement in Brooklyn, sources tell Judicial Watch.

“Karakrah is, allegedly, also a former FBI confidential informant who has gone rogue, breaking contact with his bureau handlers. Sources tell Judicial Watch that legal proceedings against Karakrah in Chicago have now twice been delayed because of FBI “equities.” Karakrah’s next hearing is scheduled for October 15, 2014, and he remains in the Cook County Jail.

“Before moving to Chicago sometime in 2011, Karakrah lived in Anthony, NM and a suburb of El Paso, TX…

“Huerta is alleged to have smuggled explosives and weapons from the Fort Bliss range and exercise areas in concert with corrupt US Army soldiers and government contractors with gate passes at the El Paso base. In 2009 he partnered with Karakrah to plan a Chicago truck bombing that was thwarted. Between December 2010 and February 2011, Huerta and Karakrah also planned two additional bomb plots targeting oil refineries in Houston and the Fort Worth Stockyards, according to Judicial Watch sources.”

Both men are in jail, Nuerta in El Paso on DWI and a federal charge of “unlawful reentry of a removed alien” and Karakrah in Chicago on the fake bomb charge.

Judicial Watch closed their report:

“With both Karakrah and Huerta in custody, federal law enforcement officials have an extraordinary opportunity to break the powerful narco-terrorism grip on El Paso – assuming they can overcome internecine turf wars between the various agencies of the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security. Judicial Watch “connected the dots” in this narco-terrorism network for federal law enforcement.

“For too long, “experts” have discounted the level of cooperation between Mexican drug cartels and Islamist militants. Meanwhile terrorists, weapons, drugs and money cross back-and-forth over the border virtually undetected, in a city long known as the “safest in America.”

“Two recent, seemingly unrelated, arrests expose the nexus of Islamic terror and drug cartel trafficking operating from El Paso, that in the last four years has been nationally recognized for having the “lowest crime rate ranking” among municipalities with populations over 500,000.”

Mouse Threatening NM Ranching Family’s Livelihood

 

A New Mexico ranching family’s livelihood is being threatened by an endangered mouse.

The meadow jumping mouse was recently designated an endangered species. Now, officials are considering building 8-foot-tall fences around protected areas, which would prevent the family’s animals from grazing.

In a statement, Robert Trujillo, of the U.S. Forest Service, said, “It’s been our experience that a fence like that to protect that occupied habitat seems to be the best way we can do our affirmative duty and protect that habitat.”

Seton Motley, president of Less Government, was on “Fox and Friends” to discuss the situation.

“Why don’t they apply that logic to the southern border?” he said of the proposed fence.

Dem Candidate For New Mexico Governor Endorsed By Weather Underground Founder Mark Rudd…

Weasel Zippers

The coveted domestic terrorist endorsement.

Via Free Beacon:

New Mexico Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alan Webber has a history of radical views, including ties to the Weather Underground and urging empathy for a child sex offender.

Webber has raised the most money of Democratic candidates vying to challenge Republican Gov. Susana Martinez, and is competing against four other Democrats, including Lawrence Rael, who exaggerated his resume on his campaign website. The primary will be held on June 3.

Mark Rudd, a leader and founder of the domestic terrorist group the Weather Underground, which has advocated for the violent overthrow of the United States and committed multiple bombings of public buildings in the late 1960s and early 1970s, endorsed Webber in April. Rudd’s wife Marla Painter hosted a campaign event for the Democrat that month.

“Help elect a pro-jobs, pro-environment progressive Democrat as governor,” Rudd wrote, according to KRQE.

Webber tried to distance himself from the endorsement, saying, “of course I denounce terrorism.” However, the candidate praised Rudd for being a “proponent of non-violence” and a teacher at Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque.

White House land grab

Washington Times

By Sen. Jim DeMint

You’d think the Obama administration is busy enough controlling the banks, insurance companies and automakers, but thanks to whistleblowers at the Department of the Interior, we now learn they’re planning to increase their control over energy-rich land in the West.

A secret administration memo has surfaced revealing plans for the federal government to seize more than 10 million acres from Montana to New Mexico, halting job- creating activities like ranching, forestry, mining and energy development. Worse, this land grab would dry up tax revenue that’s essential for funding schools, firehouses and community centers.

President Obama could enact the plans in this memo with just the stroke of a pen, without any input from the communities affected by it.

At a time when our national unemployment rate is 9.7 percent, it is unbelievable anyone would be looking to stop job-creating energy enterprises, yet that’s exactly what’s happening?


The document lists 14 properties that, according to the document, “might be good candidates” for Mr. Obama to nab through presidential proclamation. Apparently, Washington bureaucrats believe it’s more important to preserve grass and rocks for birdwatchers and backpackers than to keep these local economies thriving.

Administration officials claim the document is merely the product of a brainstorming session, but anyone who reads this memo can see that it is a wish list for the environmentalist left. It discusses, in detail, what kinds of animal populations would benefit from limiting human activity in those areas.

The 21-page document, marked “Internal Draft-NOT FOR RELEASE,” names 14 different lands Mr. Obama could completely close for development by unilaterally designating them as “monuments” under the 1906 Antiquities Act.

It says all kinds of animals would be better off by doing so, like the coyotes, badgers, grouse, chickens and lizards. But giving the chickens more room to roost is no reason for the government to override states’ rights.

Rep. Robert Bishop, Utah Republican, made the memo public because he didn’t want another unilateral land grab by the White House, like what happened under former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carte
