A recent report from government watchdog group Judicial Watch claimed, that an Islamic terrorist organization is currently operating in Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez, and has a plan to attack the United States along the Mexican border on 9/11. The report cited several high-level sources and also claimed that Homeland Security, Justice and Defense Department agents have been placed on high alert “and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.”

However now, Department of Homeland Security officials have released a statement contradicting Judicial Watch’s report claiming that there is no credible evidence that an Islamic militant group, ISIS or al Qaeda, plan to use the border to enter the United States. While the Mexican border is not the main concern, DHS officials did reveal that there are genuine concerns.

Speaking to Congress on Wednesday, the officials stated that the security administration is less concerned with the weakness of the Mexican border, and is instead focused on the possibility of ihadist fighters entering the U.S. legally on commercial airline flights. Jennifer Lasley, a senior official at the Department of Homeland Security's intelligence and analysis office, confirmed, “We don't have any credible information, that we are aware of, of known or suspected terrorists coming across the border," as reported by the New York Daily News.

However, while addressing Congress, Francis Taylor, a DHS official confirmed the reports of increased chatter and radio talk in regards to both ISIS and the possibility of entering the U.S. through it’s seemingly vulnerable southern border, however the official also stated that the DHS is well prepared for such a threat. "Any infiltration across our border would be a threat," said Taylor adding "satisfied we have the intelligence and capability on the border that would prevent that activity.”
