Texas Governor Rick Perry has raised the alarm that terrorists from the ISIL Takfiri group and other extremist militants may have already entered the US soil via the Mexican border.
On Thursday, Perry stressed the need for Washington to take immediate action to prevent Takfiri terrorists from sneaking into the United States via Mexico, saying the militants could have already taken advantage of the country’s lax border security and stepped on the American soil.
“I think there is the obvious, great concern that because of the condition of the border from the standpoint of it not being secure and us not knowing who is penetrating across,” said the former presidential candidate.
The American politician further stated there was “no clear evidence” that the Takfiri terrorists have slipped across the Mexican border. However, he emphasized the “very real possibility” that the militants might already be within the country’s borders.
Perry’s comments come a few days after a gruesome video surfaced on the Internet showing a suspected British Muslim terrorist beheading American journalist James Foley in what is said to be retaliation for recent US airstrikes against the ISIL Takfiri group in Iraq.
The footage, dubbed “A Message to America,” also warned that the ISIL terrorist group would slay kidnapped American journalist Steven Sotloff if Washington did not halt the airstrikes.
In an interview with The Hill on Wednesday, US Congressman Peter King said the beheading of the American journalist by the ISIL Takfiris is “a declaration of war” on the United States, stressing, “There is a war. It’s a threat to the US and we have to fight back.”
